Re "Legality of Banning Cat Declawing to Be Studied," Jan. 22: I grew up in New Jersey, where all cats were indoor pets and everyone had them declawed. I had my cat declawed and, two years later, moved to Los Angeles, where the cat became an "indoor/outdoor" pet. Without claws, this cat was still able to climb walls, jump fences, play with other cats and enjoy a long, healthy life -- she lived for 15 years. It is ridiculous to ban cat declawing. What should be illegal is cropping a dog's ears and tail, which is done for cosmetic reasons.

Volunteers on Saturday will help build a new roller hockey rink over an underused parking lot at Pioneer Park in San Fernando, but the foundation for the project was really laid six months ago--in the form of an idea. San Fernando City Councilman Ray Ojeda recalled driving around town and spotting a few youths playing roller hockey in the street. "I saw them playing from one side of the street to another and I wondered why there wasn't anyplace around for them," Ojeda said.

It was O. Henry who created the original "Home Alone" kid. In his short story "The Ransom of Red Chief," published in 1910, a feisty little boy so terrorizes his two bumbling kidnapers that they're willing to pay to have his family reclaim him. It's not surprising then that Serendipity Theatre Co. is making the most of the comparison in its lively production of the classic at the Coronet Theatre (playing today and Sunday).

In the eyes of the jury that convicted him of receiving stolen property, Saied Kalimi Aframian was a Los Angeles jeweler who bought two expensive watches taken in a $550,000 armed robbery of an exclusive Washington department store. But to FBI investigators, the conviction only scratched the surface.

DORAL, Fla. - It was only the first round Thursday, but the 68-player international field at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship got a taste of just how fearsome the new Blue Monster can be. The opening day at Trump National Doral had strong, shifting winds, rain, a storm delay, a tornado watch and a suspension of play because of darkness. As a result, there were plenty of birdies, but also plenty of bogeys, doubles and worse. Only two threesomes completed 18 holes.

In "Search and Destroy," the Howard Korder play that premiered in 1990 at South Coast Repertory, a modern-day American dreamer with a taste for blood comes to a realization. The worst thing a man can do? "He can undertake an adventure. He can misjudge his strength. And he can destroy himself."

INSIDE a vacant former furniture store, former Negro League baseball player Troy Maxson wrestles with his betrayal of his wife, Rose -- and silently but equally powerfully, with the emotional fallout from generations of racism and inequity.

A frozen field in rural America. Helpless victims in wool coats. Two escapees, on the run, with nothing to lose. It had all the makings of a sensational crime--and the media has descended accordingly on the town of Bend, Ore., beaming back images of the unrepentant scofflaws: There's Jessie, the mastermind, a middle-aged golden retriever with decidedly dopey eyes. And then there's Chase, Jessie's lackey, a clumsy, big-pawed beagle pup. Their crime: sheep chasing. Their sentence: death.

In sports-obsessed America, the latest heroes don't run with the pigskin, swing for the fences or play above the rim. In fact, the most athletic move most ever make is unhitching the boat from the pickup. But the stars are millionaires. They have their own trading cards, cable television shows and lucrative endorsement contracts. One phenom--a former punch-press operator from Cannon, Ky.--is pictured on a Wheaties box. And, holy mackerel, can they catch fish. "Oh, son!"

Whether you use the back yard as a place to play, eat a meal or take a nap, build a fort or tend a garden, this secluded outdoor space naturally leads to homespun diversions. Humble as they may be, these simple pleasures, a little peace and the time to enjoy them richly add to the sum of our private lives. As much as any room inside the house, and certainly more than your front yard, a back yard can be a space for self-expression, any way you care to express it. Remember, it's your back yard.
