You can call him "wacko" or you can call his work bizarre--he does. But don't, pleads self-proclaimed water swami Howard Fields, call his spewing volcanoes, spitting turtles or galloping marble horses boring. Fields, a 39-year-old former biochemist and fruit rancher, dove into the full-time design of exotic swimming pools and ponds 2 1/2 years ago. He has come up a million-dollar-a-year winner.

USC players were off Thursday, but work continues seemingly nonstop on the new $70-million John McKay Center, which is rising on campus across the street from Brian Kennedy-Howard Jones Field. Workers broke ground on the 110,000-square-foot, three-level building in January and construction is on schedule to be finished by midsummer. Coach Lane Kiffin charts the building's progress every morning when he makes the short trek from Heritage Hall to the practice field. "The crews working over there amaze me," Kiffin said.

As an occasional tassel-wearing attorney, I find it ironic to hear the Republican candidates blame the economic malaise resulting from years of Reaganomics upon attorneys. While reading how Hillary Clinton, who 20 years ago in an esoteric law journal, espoused ideas about children that are positively mainstream today, my wife (an attorney who owns a pair of tasseled shoes) was on the telephone to Ohio gathering crucial information to fill out the necessary forms so that her mother and two aunts will be able to collect approximately 40% of her now-deceased grandparents' unfortunate investment in American Continental.

The city will try to make use of office space at World Cup Center, vacated first by the U.S. soccer team and then by the Vigilantes minor league baseball team. The City Council voted Monday to spend $8,500 to have plans drawn up to remodel the center, which also has two lighted soccer fields, restrooms and a concession stand.

It has been almost a decade since Joseph Sammut lost his $9-an-hour job cleaning jetliners for American Airlines because his bosses accused him of stealing 10 cans of soda from a Boeing 727 parked at Los Angeles International Airport. Suddenly out of work after 18 years on the job, the Inglewood man appealed to his union for aid, and when that did not help, he called on an attorney to file a lawsuit against the airline and union on his behalf.

As assistant district attorney in San Francisco, Keith Vines prosecuted one of the largest illicit drug busts the city had ever seen. Then he came down with AIDS wasting syndrome and lost 60 pounds over three years. To stimulate his appetite, he started taking marinol, an FDA-approved drug containing THC, one of the active ingredients in marijuana. He says he couldn't control the dose of the drug, which must be swallowed. "I would be out of it for four or five hours," he says.

The L.A. County Museum of Art should rethink its firing of docent Stephanie Riseley for her statements to students regarding Ed Kienholz's sculpture, "Back Seat Dodge '38" (May 19). As a fifth-grade teacher, I have taken classes on this tour and remember Kienholz's work quite well. It is obvious to anyone what it represents, and Riseley's explanation was in no way inappropriate. Her statement that you should "think before you act" regarding your first sexual experience was in keeping with the message we are trying to send to students.

When Howard Fields, a 39-year-old former prune farmer and pig rancher, finds the time to settle back on his 51-foot sailboat on San Francisco Bay he thinks of swimming pools. Big swimming pools. Huge swimming pools. Multimillion-dollar extravaganzas with waterfalls, water slides, tons of sand, tons of fake volcanic rock, lights and hundreds of swaying palm trees. Friends and colleagues call him the "Water Swami."
