Andrea Jaeger [July 19] appears to be an absolute gem and I am sure the kids love her. Her selfless actions offer an example to all and her self-deprecating manner is all the more endearing. It is quite obvious, for her, this a labor of love and nothing could be more fulfilling than that. Her efforts will help countless numbers of sick children to cope and will offer them the opportunity to experience simple pleasures, so often denied them, due to lack of circumstance or money. A beautiful story and I would like to thank Mr. Plaschke for bringing it to everyone's attention.

The key figure in the alleged extortion plot against television anchorwoman Jann Carl was ordered on Wednesday to stand trial in Los Angeles Superior Court. Municipal Court Judge Karl Jaeger, after a six-day preliminary hearing of the case against producer Gil Cabot, ruled that there is sufficient evidence that Cabot attempted to extort $30,000 from the KTLA-TV newswoman. Cabot is accused of telling Carl that he could make sure sexually explicit pictures of her would not be published in return for a payoff.

The richest of the rich in America is worth $2.8 billion, while the poorest of the rich checks in at a mere $150 million. But who's counting? Forbes magazine, that's who, and its 1985 list of the nation's 400 richest people is topped by Sam Moore Walton of Bentonville, Ark., who has made $2.8 billion through his Wal-Mart discount stores. Walton, who danced a hula on Wall Street last year when profit goals were met, replaced Gordon Getty, the front-runner for the past two years.

Every time it rains here, Kris Holstrom knowingly breaks the law. Holstrom's violation is the fancifully painted 55-gallon buckets underneath the gutters of her farmhouse on a mesa 15 miles from the resort town of Telluride. The barrels catch rain and snowmelt, which Holstrom uses to irrigate the small vegetable garden she and her husband maintain. But according to the state of Colorado, the rain that falls on Holstrom's property is not hers to keep.

The Raiders' most lethal scoring weapon has never taken a meaningful note in a team meeting. He doesn't attend practices because, well, they bore him. He takes leisurely lunches and daydreams of lowering his golf handicap. His coach, Art Shell, never speaks with him. "Well, he says 'Hi,' " the player confessed, "but it's not like I'm going to go up and ask him about some blocking scheme. I've got friends, they ask me about the offense and defense, and I don't have a clue. I really don't."

Nineteen-year-old Andrea Jaeger's life used to be dominated by tennis. That was during her youth. "When I was young, I got up, practiced, played a match, and went to sleep," she said. "If I played eight hours a day, I figured I'd get better." She got very good very fast. Jaeger was the third-ranked woman player in the world in 1982 and '83, but then suffered a rotator cuff injury to her right shoulder last August that led her to believe her career might be over.
