TRACY, Calif. -- The first indication that something might be horribly, irreversibly wrong with Eric Scoggins materialized nearly two years ago. Decorating his new home, the once-robust former USC and NFL linebacker realized he no longer had the strength to lift a hammer over his head. Someone else would have to hang pictures for a man who 30 years ago helped USC win a national championship, who was the defensive player of the game in a season-shaping victory over 1978 co-national champion Alabama, who was a part-time starter for teams that ranked among the Trojans' all-time best.

Re "Land-Use War, Malibu Style," Jan. 23: The rental of the Foundation for the Junior Blind campground to nonblind organizations is money-based. Jeremy Joe Kronsberg and his family have the right to their lifestyle, undisturbed by politically correct bureaucrats. The foundation can upgrade its existing facilities without disturbing people, steelhead trout, creeks or ancient oak trees. Susanna Hahn Malibu

It took 16 years to finish the complex, sprawling Walt Disney Concert Hall, so 14 years to renovate Newport Beach's historic but much smaller Balboa Theater may be a little too much suspense. Just ask the City Council. Last week, the council voted to give the theater's foundation $175,000 to revive long-stalled renovation work. Arts-minded donors have also contributed $3 million since 1996. They envision a professional theater on an economically revitalized Balboa Peninsula.
