One is a 37-year-old Newport Beach commodities broker who wants to travel across the Pacific Ocean . . . on a bicycle. The other is a 23-year-old snow boarder-turned-sales manager for a mountain bike company. Although Perry Stone and Jeff Estes are competing as a team, they have different agendas. Thursday, they will leave Irvine on the first leg of the 16th Race Across America transcontinental bicycle competition. They will be the only ones in the race to compete on mountain bikes.

Regarding "In Japan, barely a ripple," about reaction to Apple Inc.'s iPhone (Jan. 11): I realize you needed a hook, and the iPhone serves that purpose well. But I would hate to think that readers walk away with the impression that Apple has much control over the lack of features here. Does anyone really think that Apple isn't clamoring to provide the more advanced third-generation standards that are common overseas? Isn't it likely that it would do a credible job rolling these capabilities out in a slick, integrated and satisfying fashion -- if only our telecom companies provided modern capabilities?

Re "LAPD Considers New Tactics to Curtail Rave Parties," Nov. 30: The incidents that occurred during late-night mini-raves are predictable, inevitable and tragic. Unfortunately, it's less the result of teenagers' desire to socialize while dancing (who would have thought!) and more the result of local officials and police pressuring the owners of legitimate dance venues. The results are what we see today. Any officials who want to stop "the kids" from dancing, I suggest they rent the movie "Footloose" and draw the logical conclusions.

In "San Diego Losing Its Football Team Spirit" (May 11), you cover the San Diego Chargers' desire to move to greener pastures in L.A. Let's see: a billionaire like Philip Anschutz angling a strapped L.A. County and reeling in L.A. citizens to buy him a new stadium. A team that managed to squeeze San Diego into buying unsold tickets (to the tune of $25 million) complaining it's not making enough money. And, spurning a $78-million civic investment in its own stadium, a team management that is ready to run. These people want to suck even more money from us. In an environment in which L.A. can't even afford to fund its own hospitals?

Re "U.S. Indicts Porn Sellers, Vowing Extensive Attack" and "Ashcroft Objects to Lenient Jurists," Aug. 8: Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft must be quite bored. How wonderful that Al Qaeda is a distant memory, the anthrax attacks in the U.S. are wrapped up, that the Department of Homeland Security has closed shop because of the arrests of all terrorists posing a domestic threat to the U.S. and that Saudi links to the World Trade Center attacks have been exposed to a grateful nation. Why else would Ashcroft be directing the full weight of the U.S. Justice Department against a couple of adult video distributors, toward crafting a "hit list" targeting U.S. judges who aren't as draconian as he'd like or launching attacks on medical marijuana proponents, who, it should be noted, are helping terminally ill patients under the auspices of California law. Things must be very quiet around the offices of the attorney general of the United States for them to be focusing on such poppycock.

Re "Iran Nuclear Issue Moves Toward U.N.," Jan. 12 I see that the European Union diplomats, led by Britain, Germany and France, are beginning to talk tough about Iran with respect to restarting its nuclear activity. This will be interesting to watch unfold. Now is the chance for the United Nations to show the world how it can fully and finally stop the Iranians, diplomatically or otherwise, and to demonstrate to all of us Bush supporters how the United States should have behaved in the Iraq situation.

Re "In Jolt to Orange County, Navy to Sell El Toro Land," March 7: What a hoot! One day after the election the Navy decides to sell El Toro Marine base. Thanks to all of you who voted for the "Quality of Life Initiative" and turned what should have been a countywide asset into a developer--and the city of Irvine--boondoggle. Be sure to let us all know how your quality of life is after El Toro and the surrounding 14,000 acres are developed. You will have plenty of time to think about this while sitting in all the additional traffic the new developments will bring.

Derek Fahs continued to baffle hitters with his breaking ball, and the Fountain Valley High School baseball team continued its drive for the Sunset League title. Fahs threw a one-hitter in a 3-0 victory over Huntington Beach on Tuesday at Fountain Valley. Fahs, a senior right-hander, struck out 11 and walked three to improve to 7-1 as the first-place Barons (14-3, 3-0) took control of the league race.
