I enjoyed John Sheehan's article, "Venturing Into the U.K. Countryside" (April 26). Once visited, the countryside of Kirkcudbrightshire is never to be forgotten. He describes the summit near Loch Trool as 2,700 meters (8,600 feet). Since Britain is where the word "foot" originated, the British likely would never use metric measure to define the height of a local mountain. The highest point in the U.K. is Ben Nevis, a mountain in Scotland near the town of Fort William that measures 4,406 feet.

The fight for a local high school in Malibu has been long and, at times, acrimonious. Students, parents and teachers were just beginning to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel; feeling great about the progress that's been made and the superior test scores of our students. And we were confident in the principal, Bob Donahue, who has worked jointly with us toward our mutual goal. Supt. Neil Schmidt's and the Santa Monica school board's cavalier demand for the "resignation" of Bob Donahue, therefore, came as a blow to the entire community, a blow aggravated by Schmidt's failure to adequately inform parents and students of the pending resignation demand and his failure to offer a criteria upon which the school board's actions were taken.

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District board voted Monday to give minority students enrollment priority at Malibu High School when it opens this fall. Board members said they want the school to eventually have at least a 35% minority enrollment. The school board voted to change Malibu Park Middle School into a high school last spring in response to pressure from parents to establish a local high school in Malibu.

Bill Douglas thumbed through an assortment of religious-oriented rock 'n' roll albums, carefully setting his next selection on the turntable. At Christian Ice Skating Night, the music is as important as a proper-fitting pair of skates. "The people seem to be fairly happy with what's being spun," said Douglas, a youth pastor at St. Matthew's United Methodist Church in Newbury Park who doubles on occasion as disc jockey at the Conejo Valley Ice Skating Center.

Two teen-age boys were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of firebombing two trailers, which students and parents had bought as a memorial to a beloved Agoura High School teacher, because the boys wanted to test a Molotov cocktail. The boys, 14 and 15, told investigators that they set the blaze Monday night after reading the "Anarchist's Cookbook," which explains how to make home-made bombs, said sheriff's Deputy Detta Roberts.

As if a riot, an earthquake and a chronic five-year recession weren't enough, now comes our region's latest disaster--Bob Toledo as head football coach at UCLA. WESLEY WELLMAN Santa Monica All credit to Pete Dalis for making an honorable effort to land a proven, quality coach. The fact that one candidate brought back unpleasant memories of Larry Brown and another proved to be a provincial control freak wasn't Pete's fault. Rick Neuheisel, of course, was always pie in the sky, thanks to Terry Donahue's last blunder.

An air of history in the making hung over Malibu High School on opening day like the unseasonal fog shrouding the Santa Monica Mountains rising up behind it. "This high school will be what we make it," student Ecila Davis said over a salsa-drenched quesadilla and a Popsicle during snack period.

A sea of pajama-clad children squirms on the rail car's ancient wooden benches, too excited to sit still. They drop toys, throw mittens and slosh hot chocolate. Smiling adults perch among them, wrapped in bathrobes, looking on with amusement. Outside in the frigid dark, the hills gather the new-fallen snow around them like a flannel blanket. The old steam engine pulls the train, clickety-clacking past twinkly towns . . . on its way to the North Pole.

Can you imagine the Los Angeles Kings holding car washes to raise enough money to keep themselves on the ice? Can you imagine the Los Angeles Kings playing a league game before a dozen fans? OK, the Kings are a bad example. Can you imagine the Montreal Canadiens having to hose down Oldsmobiles to raise enough money to keep themselves on the ice? Can you imagine Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers playing a league game before 12 fans or having to sell raffle tickets to raise money for pucks?
