Over the years, hundreds of volunteers at the Stagecoach Inn have worked to present a true picture of the history of the Conejo Valley. They present a beautiful interwoven picture combining the history of the Chumash, the Spanish and early settlers in the Conejo Valley. There are independent structures depicting the history of each and how the combining of all led to the development of the Conejo Valley as we know it today. To eliminate the Chumash display would destroy the complete picture they have tried to depict.

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman has been labeled a bad guy by some because of his nationally televised rant about San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree following the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers Sunday in the NFC championship. But a video posted Wednesday night on NFL.com of a miked-up Sherman following his game-deciding tip in the end zone in the final seconds of regulation could change some minds. The first-time Pro Bowler approached Crabtree after the play, patted him on the rear, offered to shake his hand and told the dejected receiver, "Hell of a game, hell of a game" -- only to be shoved in the facemask by Crabtree.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plans to install 30 wells in the Glendale-Burbank area in March to monitor levels of chromium 6 in underground water to get a fuller picture of how extensive the contamination is. The move is another step in the federal agency's 2007 investigation into the cancer-causing element's potential threat to human health and the environment. The investigation will also aid California officials who are considering tighter restrictions on levels of the toxic element allowed in potable water.

In "Islam Rising" you continue to portray Islam as a backward, oppressed religion. You don't give the complete picture. You say that in Islam a man can have four wives and a woman, one husband. Islam doesn't require or expect polygamy; it is tolerated if and only if the husband can treat each wife equally and is responsible for them equally, and their children as well. Most importantly, he must have approval from the other wife/wives. What you have written is like saying that Western men can only have one wife but are entitled to as many mistresses as they desire.

Re "Vatican Lights Its First Candle for Hanukkah," Dec. 24: I am pleased that the Catholic Church is now willing to treat another religion (Judaism) with respect, just as I was pleased when it was finally willing to acknowledge the superiority of Copernicus' astronomy over Ptolemy's, and just as I was pleased when Orthodox Christian leader His All Holiness Bartholomew I last month declared that degradation of the natural world is "sin." Corrections to flawed policies of the past remind me that even with the most noble of intentions, there is no human institution that is not imperfect.

Sarah Henry responds: I agree--greater insight into the hospital's point of view would have given readers a more complete picture of the Dimaranan case. However, Connie Tanquary and other hospital employees who share her opinion would not speak to me when I contacted them. As to Tanquary's specific charges: The article pointed out the hospital's contention that Dimaranan's demotion was performance-based. It also pointed out that Dimaranan's immediate supervisor was highly complimentary in the first evaluation of Dimaranan as an assistant head nurse.

Re "I want my House TV," editorial, Dec. 16 Has C-SPAN Chief Executive Brian Lamb decided to play the old ratings game? He would like a more "complete picture" of the House floor so that the viewers could get a clearer picture of the "personality" of the members? I don't think so. Anyone with half a brain knows that the presence of a camera alters the behavior of those within range. Can we look forward to a "Dr. Phil" rendition of the business of government with cameras trying to catch every off-guard moment of our elected officials?

Your April 20 editorial ("What Price Privacy?") that questions GTE's handling of the recall of some limited-distribution Street Address Directories does not present a complete picture. There was never any question that we would inform our customers whose numbers were inadvertently published. The difficult decision we faced was the timing of the communication. We made what we believed was a decision that would best serve the interest of our affected customers--to quickly and effectively retrieve the directories before making the situation a matter of public knowledge.

Your article on the use of antibiotics in farm animals ["FDA Sets New Path on Animal Antibiotics," Jan. 9] fell short of presenting a complete picture of this important subject. I am just one person, and I know of four people who are experiencing the nightmare of having contracted an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria. My own son was hospitalized for three weeks with this, landing a medical discharge from the Army. In order to produce meat on the scale that Americans consume it, producers have to give the animals antibiotics.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You will need to take an aggressive stance with someone to get something accomplished. You will also be merciful when you need to be. Taurus (April 20-May 20): You'll be an expert reader of facial expressions and body language. You'll endear others to you by tuning in to their rhythm. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Laughter is aerobics for the soul. You'll be giggling throughout the afternoon and ensuring your own good health as you do. Cancer (June 22-July 22)

A pro-El Toro airport group on Wednesday dropped the latest salvo in the war over the proposed airfield when it released a report suggesting home values wouldn't be hurt by commercial jets overhead. That finding came under immediate fire from airport opponents and others, including the Orange County Assn. of Realtors, a South County-based group that initially participated in the study but dropped out last month after reading its conclusions.

Listen to the fragments: "He was shot twice. In the back. My brother jumped over him to get out." "Right in front of me. I saw him die." "My sister. He went back in to get my sister." They spit out the horror in dull, flat voices. No hysteria. No tears. Not now, five hours after the screaming, the crying, the cowering, the running. Now they were drained. Now they were numb. Now they had only dull, flat voices, voices squeezed so dry with pain that they could scarcely convey the horror.

While both Robbert Flick and Allan Sekula have worked here on and off since the '70s, the two artists have rarely intersected professionally. Flick, a USC professor, has long concentrated on Los Angeles cityscapes while Sekula, who teaches at California Institute of the Arts, has been drawn to the region's shore and ports.

You've got a lifetime of photographs, stacks and stacks of prints that add up to a hill of a mess. Chances are, they rarely see the light of day--tucked away beneath the clutter of dresser drawers, cardboard boxes, shopping bags, storage trunks. To bring order out of chaos, whom should you call? Photobusters.
