The reason the bike lane on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles is bright fluorescent green is so drivers and bicyclists alike can see it easily and avoid running into one another. However, the very conspicuousness of that color has brought on a collision between politics and business in the city. Bicyclists and downtown neighborhood groups are fans of the 1.4-mile stretch of green bike lane on Spring Street from Cesar Chavez to 9th Street. But location scouts and production managers who bring filming to the city's historic downtown core are not so happy.

By pure luck I tuned into the Dodger game Thursday and was blessed with the real-time version of Shawn Green's incredible performance. Even more incredible, however, was that Ross Porter, the Sultan of Statistics, the Maven of Minutia, the Titan of Trivia, could not keep up with all the records being broken. You could literally hear the pages turning of the encyclopedia he carries. I hope he has recovered. Michael Gilligan Redondo Beach I just heard that Shawn Green hit four home runs and had an all-time record 19 total bases.

Apartment dwellers with no room for potting up plants now have a place to do it. "This is the kind of shop I longed for during the 10 years I lived in the city," says Felix Navarro, 35, who recently opened the Juicy Leaf in Venice. Navarro, who specializes in container gardens, named the store for the sculptural succulents that characterize his designs. As he creates sleek compositions on the store's small patio, a nearby planting station makes puttering possible for customers.

I think Emily Green's writing is wonderful-intelligent and clear ('Cow Madness in England," March 21). I even looked through the paper to find other articles that she might have written but couldn't find anything. ANNETTE O'TOOLE Via e-mail
