County Assessor Bradley L. Jacobs continues to dig his heels in and try to shift the blame that will come his way if his office is delayed in completing this year's tax roll. He should be more flexible and willing to take sensible advice. Jacobs had requested an extra $395,000 for his office to hire more people to get the county's tax roll into shape. With assessments of property in the county now totaling nearly $180 billion, it's an important job.

Richard Zanuck is to be credited for greenlighting the original 1968 "Planet of the Apes" ("Exploring His World," by George F. Custen, Aug. 1). However, as I detail in my book "Planet of the Apes as American Myth: Race, Politics and Popular Culture," the real hero of the "Apes" series was producer Arthur P. Jacobs. The tenacious Jacobs fought for five years to realize his vision and was turned down repeatedly before 20th Century Fox signed on. Jacobs brought together talents like producer Mort Abrahams, writers Michael Wilson and Rod Serling, director Franklin J. Schaffner and, later, writer Paul Dehn and director J. Lee Thompson, among others, to help him create the influential film series.

Tailback Quincy Jacobs of Thousand Oaks High, who was hampered by a groin injury during his senior season, has committed to Stanford. Jacobs took recruiting trips to California, Northwestern and Stanford before committing to play for the Cardinal. He canceled trips to Notre Dame and Colorado after making his decision. "I liked Stanford because it offered excellence in both athletics and academics," Jacobs said. "And playing for someone like Coach (Bill) Walsh is a dream come true."

There were a few anxious moments for Cal State Fullerton Sunday, right down to the ninth inning, when Sacramento State loaded the bases but failed to score. Fullerton, however, emerged with a 9-4 Big West Conference baseball victory at Titan Field that Coach George Horton said he felt good about. The victory clinched the series, two games to one, and left the Titans 22-11, 9-3 in the conference. "That might have been our most complete game of the season," Horton said.

The New York Giants announced that halfback Brandon Jacobs will sit out their game against Dallas on Sunday because of a knee injury. "We just don't think he will be ready," Coach Tom Coughlin said of Jacobs on Friday. Derrick Ward will replace Jacobs, with Ahmad Bradshaw backing him up. Danny Ware, who has never carried the ball in an NFL regular-season game, probably will be the third back, although there is an outside chance Coughlin will use veteran Reuben Droughns.
