Hyundai Motor America plans to spend $150 million building a new North American headquarters on the site of its current offices — a refurbished factory — in Fountain Valley. The project would take at least a year to build and would generate about 1,500 construction jobs. It would also double the space of the current headquarters and provide room to double the fast-growing auto company's corporate staff to about 1,400 employees, said John Krafcik, chief executive of Hyundai Motor America, the U.S. division of the South Korean automaker.

A shared spirit of wonder Lynn Lively's story of three friends celebrating 65th and 70th birthdays by backpacking to, over and down Mt. Whitney ("On Top of the World," May 9) would make the late Colin Fletcher, the backpacker and writer, smile. The narrator and her pals combine a grand sense of adventure with a goodly amount of planning. This is exactly the way Fletcher empowered a generation of young men and women to walk away from the car and the French fries and to carry what they could of their world of food and comfort into wild places with confidence and a spirit of wonder.

Gun control that works Re , and "Man exchanges 58 guns for gift cards," Dec. 30 This successful program of trading weapons for gift cards is one that works and works well. This should be done on a regular basis and as often as possible. It brings hope and helps rid our city of this chronic virus of violence that we have all come to accept as normal. Any gun that is gone offers one more chance for preventing another senseless death. Please keep this going. Our city thanks the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for its efforts in this ongoing battle against weapons.

It might be a good time for the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High defense to start tackling running backs a little better because the Knights are set to face perhaps the fastest running back in California on Friday night: Fountain Valley's Kyle Middlebrooks , runner-up at last spring's state track and field championships in the 100 meters. Middlebrooks has rushed for 100 or more yards in eight of 10 games this season. He has 1,608 yards rushing and the ability to sprint away for a touchdown on any play.
