The longtime companion of James Richards, the Westside community activist who was shot to death this week in what some have called an assassination, called Friday for Venice to unify in a fight against violence. "People should not let this incident stop them," Cynthia Jean Moore said as she made funeral arrangements for Richards. "In fact, it is my hope this will only bring people out of their houses, and bring them together."

It was an offense that, at most, warranted a scolding. It ended up costing a life. The way police describe the incident, two brothers from Fallbrook went to a party Monday in Chula Vista. By 10 p.m. they had downed a few drinks, then left the party, got into an argument with neighbors and tried to walk away. But one side, maybe both sides, didn't want to give up the fight.

Re "Venice Anti-Gang Activist Killed in His Driveway," Oct. 19: Sadly, Cynthia Jean Moore is correct in saying that with the murder of anti-gang activist James Richards, the gangs have won. And they will continue to win as long as we allow heavily armed terrorist gangs to freely go about their deadly business in our cities. We need to reinstitute loitering and vagrancy laws, and the IRS needs to go after these gang members for tax evasion. Oh, but I forgot! The ACLU and other pro-criminal, anti-law organizations would never put up with that, would they?

James Richards gambled on himself and won. He believed he was good enough to play major-college football and risked a scholarship to prove it. Today Richards, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound senior, will line up on the Cal offensive line when the Golden Bears place their Rose Bowl hopes on the line against seventh-ranked Washington. Only three years ago Richards was a freshman reserve at Cal State Northridge. A very frustrated freshman reserve.

In college football, as in other sports, coaches are graded by fans mainly on their most recent accomplishments. Career records are of little consequence. So it wasn't surprising that Washington Coach Don James was criticized at the outset of the 1989 season because his team hadn't been a strong contender for the Pacific 10 championship from 1985 through '88. James didn't have a losing record in those years, but the Seattle natives were restless.

The four new paintings in James Richards' first solo show at the Food House look like webs spun by spiders with no sense of direction. Or, tennis rackets strung by a machine too out of whack to line up the strings in a grid. Or, handcrafted fabrics that can't be used because too many of their strands have been wrapped around the frame of the loom.

For the last 15 years, James Richards has been making paintings that look like nothing else out there. At Shoshana Wayne Gallery, nine new works are even weirder. More sophisticated, supple and -- most surprising -- elegant, they are the best things Richards has made. They're also among the most exciting abstractions being made today. Painters who mistake the medium for the message bristle before Richards' works.

Two gang members who authorities say killed Venice-area newsletter publisher James Richards were involved in a unique partnership that brought together a local black gang and a Latino one against a man whom both gangs perceived as a common foe, police said Wednesday. "They felt Mr. Richards was a threat to their narcotics dealings," Det. Bernard Rogers said. "The motive was that they believed Mr. Richards was a snitch."

A small group of relatives and friends gathered near Surfers Point on Saturday to dedicate a bench bearing the name of a homeless Ventura veteran who was beaten to death last summer. The guests, who included surfers and homeless people, wanted to make sure 58-year-old James Richard Clark is not forgotten. "People thought a lot of him," said James Fields, 46, of Ventura, who knew Clark during their time on the streets.

At a memorial service Monday morning honoring slain anti-crime activist James Richards, his Venice friends pledged to revive his controversial newsletter while local police officers cautioned neighbors from sharing his vigilance. Richards, 55, was shot to death in front of his Oakwood home Wednesday after years of tenaciously patrolling that Venice district for drug dealers and gang crime.

One is a rising star who has taken the state Assembly by storm, shooting to the top of the freshman class with his judicial style and unswerving conservatism, and aiming for a seat in the U.S. Congress. The other is an established veteran, a staunch liberal who works the media and the chamber with ease and savvy, in the twilight of a legislative career that is about to be ended by term limits.
