HOME & GARDEN

RE "Like Apples to Emeralds" [Dec. 29]: Just had to thank you for a glorious experience! I am a longtime home gardener, and lately have been moving plants around, more or less "intuitively," thinking of what goes where in terms of sun, moisture, etc. The story was a real eye-opener, aesthetically and scientifically. SARA MERIC Santa Monica MORE than 30 years ago I saw my first rice paddy shimmering in Bali's morning light. Coming from the corn and soybean fields of Minnesota I had seen many shades of green, but ever since that rice paddy I have been a connoisseur of green.

RE "Green Checklist" [June 30], I would like to point out that the statement that "None of the basics [for an environmentally friendly home] need add any cost to the construction ... " is misleading. I am a licensed general contractor with numerous clients requesting a "green" approach, and for the most part products and materials are significantly more money. Granted, building smaller is not adding cost, but for the novice reader this "checklist" implies that cost is not the biggest issue.

The first time he faced enemy fighters -- a swarm of German Messerschmitts on the southern coast of Sardinia on May 19, 1943 -- P-40 pilot Herschel "Herky" Green was convinced he was going to die. "Your heart just about jumps out of your damn body," he once recalled. The 22-year-old Kentucky native not only survived his first mission -- despite being wounded and suffering severe damage to his plane -- but he also scored his first kill and was rapidly on his way to becoming the leading ace of the 15th Air Force, a record he held until he was grounded by headquarters after his 100th combat mission.

Attention, A.C. Green: There's some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that the Lakers made you their first-round pick in Tuesday's NBA draft and project you as a future member of their front line. The bad news is that the front line is set, for now, and first you have to make the team. "I don't think it will be that hard," the 6-9, 218-pound Oregon State forward said by phone from Portland. "It just depends how hard I want to work."

Heavyweight boxer Mitch (Blood) Green was listed in fair condition at the Queens Hospital Center this morning after being stabbed in the thigh, a hospital spokeswoman said. Green, who brawled with heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on a New York street corner last summer, told hospital authorities he had been stabbed at 4:15 p.m. Monday at East 125th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan. Hospital officials, who called city police, reported that Green was stabbed "by a person unknown to him for an unknown reason" who then fled, said police spokesman Detective James Coleman.

For some people summer doesn't start until the green corn tamales make their annual appearance at El Cholo, 1121 S. Western Ave., Los Angeles. If you're among them, summer is about to begin. The tamales officially go onto the menu Thursday, but you don't have to wait that long. El Cholo will celebrate the start of the season Tuesday with a party on the patio. It begins at 6 p.m. with Mexican dancers, seafood, soft tacos, mariachis and green corn tamales. The price is $25 per person; for reservations call (213)

During the Laker game Tuesday evening, the audio portion of the telecast was interrupted. It was the best part of the CBS coverage. As for the gravelly voiced Heinsohn: There is not question he bleeds Celtic green, it is just a matter of how fast it flows. Thank God for Chick Hearn. JEFF NUZZI San Diego

Pat Riley has to realize that there's a time for foolin' around and a time to dance with them that brung ya. The current rotation of players has upset the patterns and rhythms developed over the past two years, and the results speak for themselves. Most important is to get A. C. Green back as a starter and increase his playing time. It's ludicrous that A. C. should be the ninth player into so many recent games. Green's intensity on defense and on the offensive boards gives a lift to the other Lakers.
