Your recent article outlining salaries paid to high-ranking Orange County executives was misleading with respect to the employees of J.M. Peters Co. ("National Education's Chief Top O.C. Earner," May 14). As explained to your reporter before the release of the story, J.M. Peters' fiscal year ends the last day of February. The salaries listed in your article were for the 10 months of 1987 and 2 months of 1988. We are a public company, and your reporter was told that salaries paid to our executives for the majority of 1988's calendar year would not be reported until the first week of June.

Please let your Orange County readers know that J.M. Peters Co. currently ranks seventh on Orange County's list of home builders, based on total sales. We were omitted from the Nov. 29 published list ("29 Home Builders in County Have Sales in Top 400"). We also rank 42nd nationally. The omission was the result of Professional Builder magazine incorrectly combining our revenue with those of our parent company, Southmark Inc. The Los Angeles Times, in good faith, relied on the magazine's research, which was misleading.

Sorry, but I cannot let Brian K. Theriot's nasty letter (July 10) go without comment. I am the mother and mother-in-law of Jim and Patricia Aynes, whom he mentions as some of the "no-growth nobility" who are missing from Costa Mesa. He closes with, "Fortunately for Costa Mesa, when the going gets tough, these types get going and get out of town." Theriot fails to mention just how "tough" the opposition was, which included death threats at the time of the election. For small-town politics, that's pretty rough and "tough."

The 40th Congressional District race has narrowed to three sprinters--Dave Baker, Christopher Cox and Nathan Rosenberg. As for the rest, well, let's be honest . . . but for a few more speeches it's all over. What about the Big Three? Dave Baker supports programs designed to better our transportation woes. Rosenberg, on the other hand, is still on the sidelines. It seems he can't decide whether to support or oppose the county's no-growth initiative scheduled for the June ballot.

Costa Mesa makes substantial investments in staff planners, staff attorneys and staff engineers. The City Council also retains private law firms, planning consultants, traffic consultants and financial planners. Now comes Sandra Gennis, a staff member of the Newport Beach Planning Department. Gennis regularly attends Costa Mesa City Council meetings. She regularly lectures the council on its lack of knowledge and information. She rejects the findings of professional financial consultants, traffic planners and attorneys.
