GLENDALE, Ariz. - Anthony LeBlanc believes the Phoenix area can be a sustainable hockey market, even though the many empty seats for the Coyotes' game against the Kings at Jobing.com Arena on Tuesday would seem a strong contradiction. LeBlanc is co-owner, president, chief executive and alternate governor of the Coyotes, a string of titles he assumed last summer when he and other investors banded together to purchase the franchise from the NHL for $170 million. He and fellow investor Daryl Jones had chased a deal to buy the Coyotes for four years but couldn't quite close it; with financier George Gosbee on board the IceArizona group completed the transaction in August.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson laments the Senate's rejection of Daryl Jones' nomination for secretary of the Air Force (Commentary, July 27) by saying that it was racially motivated and was flimsily based on allegations that "he was a lousy flyer, collected extra pay for flight time he didn't earn, sought to sell Amway products to enlisted Air Force personnel, improperly lobbied . . . and then gave conflicting responses when questioned." Pardon me? From here that looks suspiciously like incompetence, defalcation, abuse of authority, conflict of interest and perjury.

Aaron Pryor, the former junior welterweight champion, returned to boxing for the first time in 17 months Wednesday night and knocked out Daryl Jones at 1:15 of the third round at Madison, Wis., ending a day which saw the fight canceled and reinstated. Pryor, who was a champion from 1980-85, knocked Jones down twice in the second round. He then finished off his former sparring partner with a four-punch combination, ending it with a right hand. Jones tried to get up but was counted out.

In a stinging rebuke to President Clinton, a Senate panel Wednesday killed the candidacy of the first black ever nominated to be Air Force secretary because of doubts about his candor and veracity. On a dramatic tie vote, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted down the selection of Daryl Jones, a Florida state senator and former fighter pilot, after long and anguished deliberations over his business dealings and record in the Air Force Reserve.

YOU have to be kidding. In the otherwise excellent review of the Rolling Stones' "Shine a Light" film ["Putting a 'Shine' on Rolling Stones," April 4), Kenneth Turan doesn't mention drummer Charlie Watts at all. Never mind Turan lists half the 18 cameramen, relatively new bassist Daryl Jones, sometimes saxophonist Bobby Keys, etc. And to add insult to injury, the accompanying photo cut off Watts' head. If you watch this movie closely, it's obvious Watts is the one musician on stage who isn't acting.
