Obviously James Boone (Letters, May 6) does not understand that the Friends of the Irvine Library awards to Orange County writers are intended to celebrate the creative effort and the commitment that goes into every book published, no matter what the subject. I feel sure Rep. Bill Dannemeyer worked just as hard as any of the rest of us to see his work progress from idea to printed page. It's no easy task. And how nice when groups like Friends of the Irvine Library recognize that.

Why must The Times continue to give aid and comfort to a group of misguided and misinformed Orange County residents? The Irvine Human Rights Ordinance is not, I repeat not, an "Ordinance on Gay Rights" as your blaring headline declared. Richard Beene's reporting style was objective and fair, but your headline gave it a skewed perspective, especially if a less than thorough reader did not get as far as Page 5 to read Larry Agran and James Boone's judicious comments that the ordinance is a broad-based human rights ordinance designed to protect all residents of Irvine.

This letter is not intended to present any political, religious or social arguments to James Boone's letter of Aug. 28 criticizing the Irvine Values Coalition. We have all heard them. Rather, it is to voice my support of traditional family values, and my opposition to a city ordinance I feel is unnecessary and a waste of our city's funds. I question whether Scott Peotter and Eleanor Moore are as "outside the mainstream of political and religious thought" as Boone believes. While not involved with the coalition, I strongly commend their desire and appreciate their efforts to preserve traditional family values.

I'm writing to thank you for your coverage of the Orange County Gay and Lesbian Pride Celebration at UC Irvine. Your stories on Aug. 14 and Aug. 18 were very good and quite objective. I feel that the event deserved the coverage, and I'm pleased that you did also. JAMES L. BOONE Irvine

Although my list of heroes is pretty short these days, it does include Don Hagan. I've known Don for many years, and whereas I tend to become cynical and tired of trying, Don never stops. He truly believes in a better world, and believes he has the ability and the responsibility to change it. When other gays and lesbians were hiding in the closet, Don let everyone know he was gay and worked tirelessly to make the world a better place for all. While other persons with AIDS shrank to the shadows, Don opened to the world to tell the truth and help educate the uninformed.
