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 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.

The Raiders are about to sign John Lee, the record-setting UCLA kicker who bombed out in St. Louis after being drafted higher than any other kicker in the 1980s. Lee's agent, Leigh Steinberg, says they have reached agreement. Lee will compete with Chris Bahr, who has been the Raider kicker as long as the team has been in Los Angeles, but who struggled last season. "I feel great," Lee said Wednesday from his home in Downey. "I was disappointed, the way things went with St. Louis.
