"Everybody got binoculars?" scientist Sarah Stock calls out to her passengers. There's a neck check. All binoculars here. Clipboards too. "I got a little bit of a library," says right-hand man and fellow scientist Jason Scott, passing along some well-thumbed books on birds, butterflies and plants. Last in is the fabled butterfly net, a tapering circle of round mesh affixed to a long pole. With more than 40 miles to cover today on the winding coast of Big Sur, the team has to keep moving.

The City Council will consider a project Monday to decorate the new downtown parking structure with solar-powered, illuminated sculptures of a Chumash canoe. Ventura's Art in Public Places Committee unanimously approved spending $80,000--10% of its $800,000 of public art funds--on the modern sculpture project last month. The project must receive council approval because it costs more than $25,000. The sculpture was designed by Blue McRight of Inglewood.

As a two-year student of Bikram yoga, I believe Hilary E. MacGregor is too hasty in labeling it as "extreme" ("A Yoga Novice Searches for the Best Fit," Dec. 24). First, and easiest to reconcile, the body and mind quickly adjust to the warmth of Bikram studios. Second, Bikram teachers and instruction vary dramatically in manner and intensity. Though teachers uniformly speak of the indoctrination of their training, many of these same teachers, in their own studios far removed from the Bikram Beverly Hills headquarters, strike a healthful balance.

HILARY E. MacGregor's article ("Building a Buzz for Peace," Feb. 4) brought to light a very dangerous trend in our nation. That is the extent to which the corporate media largely "ignore" any dissent from the increasingly far right views espoused by the Bush administration. With all of the talk about fighting for "freedom" and American values, it might be a good idea if the American people were given the freedom to hear points of view regarding the proposed war with Iraq that differed from the White House.

KUDOS for the insightful article trumpeting the latest wrinkle in the evolving entertainment trend of watching the unfortunate and underprivileged get their butts kicked for the undemanding pleasure of an increasing legion of callous morons ("Girl Fight Club," by Hilary E. MacGregor, Sept. 30). One hopes that The Times will continue to encourage and promote the product lines created by the dirtbag, low-life producers of the exploitation "Extreme Girl-Fights," the dysfunctional and dangerous "Backyard Wrestling" and the granddaddy of them, that uplifting celebration of the downtrodden and miserable, "Bumfights."

The all-men evangelical movement Promise Keepers will hold a worship service at the South Coast Fellowship on Friday to kick off a two-day conference. Founded by former University of Colorado football Coach Bill McCartney, the group attracted 1.1 million men to rallies in sports stadiums across the country last year. But in Ventura, the Promise Keepers will break with their tradition by meeting in a church rather than a stadium, and they will allow women and children to participate.

Hilary E. MacGregor's piece, "Synagogue Honors Italians Who Sheltered Jews During Holocaust" (April 17), crystalized an event so well it warranted more coverage than simply the Valley section. The event occurred in the San Fernando Valley but the historical value was certainly universal and justified being read citywide. I attended the event as did hundreds of people from areas farther than the Valley. I subscribe to The Times and live in Santa Monica but was apprised of the article by a friend in the Valley.

WHY did you consign the article on the formation of the Win Without War Coalition to the Calendar section ("Speaking Against War," by Hilary E. MacGregor, Dec. 10)? The A section front page carried a center article and two references to "related stories" reporting on the administration's unilateral march toward war in Iraq but no mention of this newest organization in the burgeoning opposition. The press dutifully reports the administration line and utterly fails to look behind the doublespeak.

In the April 11 editorial, " Fire Notice Went Astray," you refer to a Fire Department spokesman saying that previous notices had been sent regarding brush clearance to those living in the hills. This is utter nonsense. I live one block south of Ventura Boulevard in an area totally flat and fully developed and have been receiving such notices for years. Perhaps before homeowners are asked to clean up their properties, the Fire Department should be asked to clean up its act. MONROE RICHMAN, Encino Re "Homeowners Fuming Over Fire Notice," April 6. Your reporter Hilary E MacGregor's cream puff article totally missed the point.
