Congratulations to David W. Myers for a job well done with the article on the problems of hazardous waste and toxic materials (June 12). I think articles such as this by writers who obviously understand the topic are most beneficial to the commercial real estate industry. ALEXIS A. FAFENRODT Los Angeles

I read with great interest David W. Myers' article "Home Major Battleground on Pollution" (Aug. 28). I passed the article to all my friends, and they were all very interested and willing to start the war against pollution in our own homes. HELENE JEANNEL Los Angeles

The first time you come to n/naka, a kaiseki restaurant a bit north of Sony studios in the Palms area of Los Angeles, you will inevitably soar right by the place, a low, featureless building in a strip of dry cleaners and tarot-card readers surrounded by a raked zen garden in 50 shades of gray. There is no sign, no valet parking, no hint that you are entering a restaurant instead of a high-toned back office. When you find your way through the front door, you will be greeted by name - reservations are mandatory - and led through the spare, elegant dining room to a serene private room or possibly a nook that looks like the sleeping alcove in an expensive Manhattan studio apartment.

The Palmdale City Council has decided to make its meetings more user friendly by moving the public comments segment from the end of the sessions to the beginning. The meetings also will start at 7 p.m., instead of 7:30. The council's regular meetings are held once a month, and typically have lengthy agendas that delay the public testimony on non-agenda issues to as late as midnight.

Unseeded Coronado High School disregarded the seedings and played the kind of water polo that has earned it the past three 3-A San Diego Section titles. The Islanders (26-4) upset top-seeded Poway, 6-2, to reach the finals Saturday. Coronado faces Monte Vista at the Jewish Community Center at 5:30 p.m. in the first game of a championship doubleheader. Poway (25-5) couldn't get the kind of quality shots it needed.
