Chris Kraul's article prompts me to send condolences. Venice's La Fenice is the most beautiful opera house. It breaks my heart to know he was not allowed to view it or to enjoy an evening there. WINIFRED CHAOTE Porterville

Other major California refiners followed Chevron's lead Tuesday, raising wholesale gasoline prices and launching a new round of price hikes at the pump for Southern Californians. Unocal and Shell led with a 5.8-cent-per-gallon price boost, more than the 5.6-cent-per-gallon increase passed on Monday by Chevron to its Southland dealers. Texaco and refiners Ultramar and Tosco also raised prices by smaller amounts Tuesday, although some had begun nudging wholesale prices up late last week.

The L.A. City Council will soon convene an ad hoc committee to formally study the restructuring of the Department of Water and Power, a process likely to entail raising power rates, cutting more than 1,000 jobs, forming a strategic partnership with an outside energy company and cutting DWP profits to the city.

Squat, bull-necked and sullen-looking, Enrique Portocarrero hardly seems a dashing character out of a Jules Verne science fiction novel. But law enforcement officers here have dubbed him "Captain Nemo," after the dark genius of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." They say the 45-year-old has designed and built as many as 20 fiberglass submarines, strange vessels with the look of sea creatures, for drug traffickers to haul cocaine from this area of southern Colombia to Central America and Mexico.

Chris Kraul stated two times in his article on Brazil ["Companies Unfazed by Changes Rocking Brazil," Dec. 14] that the state of Parana is north of Sao Paulo state. Admittedly, I have not been to Brazil in many years, but I always thought it was south of Sao Paulo. I hope Chrysler does not get too confused and insist on going in the wrong direction, or to the wrong state. WILLIAM HICKS Beverly Hills

Excellent article ("The Voice to Watch," Jan. 23) by Chris Kraul -- someone who really knows his tenors. However, I noticed that he forgot to mention Jose Carreras, who, together with Domingo and Pavarotti, was a member of the Three Tenors franchise; otherwise, the "heir" to their throne, Rolando Villazon, wouldn't have been dubbed "The Fourth Tenor." Kraul also forgot to mention Roberto Alagna, the first candidate ever identified as "The Fourth Tenor" and still the most recorded and identifiable tenor of the present crop.
OPINION

Chris Kraul and William Orme's April 21 news analysis of the damage caused by the Bush administration's mishandling of the coup in Venezuela demonstrates the failure of the Machiavellian "ad hoc-ism" advocated by the Kissinger school of thought. The United States is strongest when we are true to the very principles upon which this nation was founded. It is for that reason there are streets, squares and even children all over the globe named after American leaders who stood true to these principles.

One of California Gov.-elect Gray Davis' key remaining appointments is the head of the Governor's Office for California-Mexico Affairs. The occupant will serve as the governor's key representative in cross-border issues involving trade, transportation, the environment and education. Outgoing appointee Rudy Fernandez, who has worked out of an office in San Diego since 1994, performed admirably under trying circumstances. Gov.
