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.

While it is in fact old news that revival theaters have been disappearing, due to a decline in audience interest in certain classic, revival and cult films, it is absolutely wrong to conclude from my comments a general decline in interest in "art" films ("Bringing the Movies Closer to Home--But Art Houses are Doing a Big Fade Out in L.A.," by Denise Hamilton, Nov. 23). Our 29 non-revival screens, including the Samuel Goldwyn Pavilion Cinemas, are successfully playing many first-run "art" films.

This is in response to the excellent article written by Denise Hamilton (Jan. 5) regarding Department 95 of the Los Angeles Superior Court where hearings pertaining to mental competency are conducted. Hamilton is to be commended for accurately describing the pathetic system we use in dealing with people with brain diseases. Through impartial documentation of court activities, she revealed the many problems encountered daily by mentally ill people and the judicial staff. Although it must be difficult for judges to decide who should be hospitalized and who should be released, the real tragedy is that those who are discharged are turned out into a community that has little to offer for care and treatment.

Anyone who's bitten into a ripe apricot, peach or plum understands the juicy scents of summer. But today's perfumers have created fragrances that make fruity essences available all year long. Fancy an olfactory plate of ripe figs? L'Artisan's Figuier Extreme and Ava Luxe's Figue de Sucre showcase the creamy sweetness of the fruit, while Heeley's Eau de Figuier and L'Artisan's Premier Figuier evoke the entire tree, complete with green leaves, milky white secretions and twiggy branches.

While Los Angeles is a big perfume hub, the Bay Area more than holds its own. "San Francisco has a great artistic vibe.... There is a Wild West energy here … artists, chefs, chocolatiers, writers and designers cross-pollinate ideas regularly," says Bay Area perfumer Yosh Han. Han, whose mother was an ikebana master, is influenced by her work in a flower shop as well as Eastern medicine and philosophy. But she attributes her career to kismet: The Chinese character for her name means "aroma.

In regards to Denise Hamilton's article on the historic Encino Indian archeological site (Aug. 25), my misgivings as indicated to her in July about talking to most reporters continue to be confirmed by the misinformation given about me in her article, this after more than an hour's conversation and ending in print as two sentences. To be specific, I was not "hired by Desautels" in any way to be involved in the Encino site, nor for that matter, in any of her past work in Encino.
