The Ventura County Boy Scouts have honored five county residents as Law Enforcement Explorers of the Year, which is part of a program designed to introduce young men and women to possible careers as police officers. The Explorer Scouts serving with the police get a "much more realistic idea of what that career . . . is like," said Janie Such, an adviser to the local Explorers Assn. "And they have a lot of fun doing it."

As I read Denise Hamilton's "Guerrilla House Hunting" article (May 9) I was aghast at this woman's tactics. She stated that each afternoon she would slowly cruise around the two-mile area in which she wanted to live. If she had been cruising my neighborhood, I would have called the police. She even admitted to stopping alongside folks doing their everyday activities and asking them if their house was for sale or if they knew of one in the area which was for sale. When this tactic produced no results, Hamilton resorted to watching for work trucks parked outside houses.

Identifying with Denise Hamilton ("When Your Biological Clock Is on 'Snooze,' " Sept. 21), I would suggest that if the clock is on snooze, let well enough alone and don't let anyone make you feel guilty (for choosing not to have children). My husband and I were a young couple working diligently at our jobs. We chose a lifestyle that would allow us our much-deserved vacations and weekends off and the freedom to travel and to take part in the myriad of activities that life has to offer in Southern California and beyond.

The May 8 San Gabriel Valley section contained an article authored by Alan Maltun and Denise Hamilton entitled "Court OKs Concord Sale to Pay Creditors." That article involved the sale of the Concord Building, which is an asset of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy estate pending before the Honorable William Lazarow, bankruptcy judge. However, that article also discusses other bankruptcy proceedings, including that of United Community Church. This office is counsel to the church in that case. My client takes exception to the conclusion in your article that United Community Church is "affiliated" with the Rev. William McBirnie.

Iwould like to point out what I feel to be a misrepresentation of certain facts presented in the March 11 article by Denise Hamilton: "Down-to-Earth Aid for Stargazers." The article did not do justice to the UCLA Physics Department Machine Shop, and I believe that the record needs to be set straight. As a member of the research team discussed in the article, I can personally vouch for the high degree of craftsmanship and professionalism demonstrated by the UCLA Physics Department Machine Shop.
