Re "Public job, private salary," editorial, April 11 Regarding the California Endowment's ongoing efforts to support the turnaround of Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center, several points need to be made. For starters, any support from the foundation for Antionette Smith Epps' faculty position at UCLA can only be supported by the California Endowment if a written proposal is submitted that meets the charitable purpose for which the foundation was created: to improve healthcare and health for underserved communities.

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

So now we know what the San Diego Community College District Foundation does with its money. It paid state Sen. Wadie Deddeh $10,000 in honoraria last year. Perhaps that explains why district administrators "shopped" Deddeh around to the social science faculty as a potential guest speaker, hoping to justify the expense. Could there be a connection between these payments and Deddeh's endorsement of an incumbent in last fall's trustees election? No, that would be too obvious. And isn't the foundation prohibited from using funds to achieve political advantage?
