I enjoyed Sam Hall Kaplan's article (March 3) about the Arroyo Seco. It prompted me to visit the UCI Gallery where the same two artists have an exhibit--"Guadalupe Meander: A Refugia for San Jose." What a wonderful project and how sad to think it just sort of went into limbo. I love your thoughts on the Los Angeles River. I would totally support such actions.
My husband owns a golf course that has a flood channel bordered by eucalyptus trees. The trees have to go and the channel has to be cemented in, in order to allow development in the area. I wish there were another way to solve the problem.
Please keep bringing this issue up until some imaginative engineers find a way to do it differently.
We were in San Antonio last October. It would be difficult to imagine the downtown without the focus the river has brought to it. Hooray for the farsighted San Antonians!

Pedestrians are hard enough to get along with--they do not need information that will lead them astray. (Sam Hall Kaplan column, Feb. 17.)
