The trap was set. All that was left for Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators to do was wait and see if the unthinkable was true. Suspicions had grown that one of their colleagues - a respected captain with more than 150 deputies under her command - was funneling secret information to an alleged Compton drug trafficker. So investigators sent out a phony plan as bait, according to records and interviews, detailing their intention to do surveillance on a house near the suspected trafficker's home.

Re "In Other Words," by Susan King, Dec. 29: While the feature film versions of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novels and stories are for the most part wanting (though from this vantage point, parts of the Kazan/Pinter "Last Tycoon" work very well), the best regarded film adaptation of a Fitzgerald story is probably "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" (1976), scripted and directed by Joan Micklin Silver for PBS' "The American Short Story." Silver and her young, talented cast really captured the feel and nuance of Fitzgerald's story; Shelley Duvall was outstanding as Bernice.

HONOLULU - Palace intrigue? Check. Royal rapscallions? Some. Kings and queens and gorgeous things? You'll find those too. You thought we were speaking of Britain, perhaps? Well, no, although Britain celebrated Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee in June. Instead, we're turning to Hawaiian royalty, who ruled a kingdom now so popular that 7.3 million people visited last year. Royal watchers will find almost as many twists and turns in the story of the Hawaiian monarchs as they do among England's overlords.

Allan McCollum is one of 30 young artists included in the current MOCA blockbuster, "Forest of Signs." In a concurrent one-man show titled "Perfect Vehicles," McCollum presents a suite of work based on an idea he has been developing since 1979. With roots in Conceptualism and Minimalism, McCollum is more a theoretician than an object maker, and "Perfect Vehicles"--six solid concrete ginger jars, 6 1/2-feet tall and identical but for the fact that each is painted a different color--offers plenty of food for thought for those of rarefied appetites.

Sally Guisinger of Brea, who works with a group of senior citizens, has been making noises about obtaining a number of kazoos, preferably the old-fashioned metal type, but she will take the heavier plastic ones; so far, her search has hit only sour notes. Can you strike a chord with Guisinger by recommending a source, or will your silence be considered a blow that might prevent her senior citizens group from banding together for old-time music?

For Drew Birtness, the last straw came when he realized he was arresting the grandchildren of suspects he had picked up years ago. The Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy had been working the streets of East Los Angeles for 21 years, long enough to be hardened by the shootings and deaths and gangs--but also long enough to try something new. "I was tired of picking up kids' bodies off the street," he said.

Old Town Irvine is not in the heart of the Orange County city of 98,000, but the formerly ramshackle structures at Sand Canyon Avenue and the Santa Ana Freeway are attracting upscale shoppers who like the idea of a hotel made out an old lima bean silo and a fast-food place made from a blacksmith shop. The $20-million project is being developed on 6.5 acres contributed by the Irvine Co., a partner in the project with Robert B. Smith, James W. Ray, Michael D. Ray and Bernice Anglea.

For years, Bernice Abram was a well-regarded manager at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. She rose through the ranks, eventually making captain at the department's Carson station, where some 160 deputies served under her command. As the city's de facto police chief, Abram was well-liked, hosting "coffee with the captain" meet-and-greets at local restaurants. But last April, Abram's ascent was unexpectedly halted, sources said, after federal agents wiretapping an alleged Compton drug trafficker overheard what they believed was the captain's voice.

When federal agents eavesdropped on the telephone conversations of several drug trafficking suspects, they heard talk of marijuana sales, money transfers and cross-country drug shipments. They may have also detected something far more surprising: a Los Angeles County sheriff's captain. Law enforcement sources have confirmed that Bernice Abram, who is in charge of the sheriff's Carson station, was put on leave after federal authorities notified sheriff's officials that their captain may have been heard on the narcotics wiretap.
