DOUG RUCKER puts on his baseball cap, slides open the back door of his house and heads toward his architectural office just a few steps off the patio. OK, then, his wife decides, time for her to get back to work too, and off she goes out the front door and down a high, rounding driveway to her art studio, clutching a mug of hot tea.

RE "It's All That They Need" [Dec. 15]: Thanks so much for this article. It's about the basics of human life. Like the Ruckers, we live in a smaller, older house with about 1,200 square feet in eastern San Diego County. Like the Ruckers, we do not feel denied. Having material objects means less to us all the time. Our environment is composed of stucco, rocks and landscape. Our patio, surrounded by vegetation, is like an extension of the house. Yes, our garage has windows too. DAVE LASSALINE El Cajon DOUG RUCKER is a breath of clean, healthy air. Just as Rucker avers with his design philosophy, writer Barbara King does not get in the way of her story: Her words read the way clear streams reveal the rocks that lie beneath their trickling waters.

The most meaningful comment I heard at the LAFCO hearing Sept. 12 was that the Bob Hope land exchange issue is regional, not local. Oak Park, environmentally sensitive, still prefers not having a huge tract in its back yard even if it means losing almost 9 square miles of open space and wildlife habitat somewhere else. This is a local issue. Simi Valley, environmentally sensitive, still prefers not having a huge county dump in its back yard and likes the idea of almost nine square miles of open space and wildlife habitat close by. This is a local issue.

NOT that Michael and Kim McCarty were in need of a theme to host a Sunday lunch -- they do it every other week, and just about any excuse will do to have friends up to their edge-of-the-bluff house in the mountains of Malibu. But the grapes in their vineyard had suddenly reached a perfect ripeness, pickers had come and gone in a day, and it was time to plan another annual harvest celebration.

The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is a place of unusual diversity, where visitors might see whales and coyotes on the same afternoon. But those who stop at the visitors center in Agoura Hills are in for an out-of-park experience. Despite the attractive displays, it is hard to maintain that national park mystique when you share a freeway office building with J. D. Power & Associates, the oracles of automotive marketing.
