FOR nearly a century, the heart of this city has maintained one cohesive look, and not by accident. Architectural guidelines stipulate that buildings downtown should be of the "Hispanic Mediterranean" tradition, specifically Andalusian. Walls should be thick, smooth stucco (white or ivory, please). Trim should be dark ("Santa Barbara blue" is traditional, hint, hint). The roof? It should be low, pitched and made of red tile, specifically the two-piece barrel variety.

IT was a treat to see the article on Jeff Shelton's work ["Pushing the City's Limits" Jan. 19]. I've long admired his Zannon house, though I didn't know who designed it. As a resident of Santa Barbara, I couldn't be happier that he's working here. I have to object to the professor's pronouncement that the architecture here is "mediocre." As a designer myself, I understand the impulse to "make your mark." However, the design restrictions in place here have always looked at the broader picture, requiring structures to "blend in."

A 16-year-old Oxnard boy was listed in critical condition in Ventura County Medical Center's intensive care unit Thursday after being shot twice at about 3 a.m. on a south Oxnard street. The boy was struck in the shoulder and the neck, according to police. The shooting in the 200 block of Campbell Way near the Southwinds apartments was gang-related, said Oxnard Police Det. Jeff Shelton. "Apparently [the victim and a friend] yelled at a guy driving past, saying he almost hit them," Shelton said.

Senior Officer Lisa Ragone was selected Wednesday as officer of the year by the Oxnard Police Department, the first woman to receive the honor. A 13-year veteran of the department, Ragone is coordinator for the Domestic Violence Unit. She helped implement the domestic violence grant, which includes coordinating volunteers to help victims and provide crisis intervention. "I was surprised, very surprised," Ragone said. "I'm jazzed still."

Police Officer Jeff Shelton meets a lot of children. As part of his beat, Shelton is assigned to youth services. When he heard that a third-grader he had seen at Haycox Elementary School died unexpectedly over the weekend, he decided to begin a fund-raising campaign to provide the 9-year-old with a proper burial. Alicia Contreras wasn't feeling well last weekend and her relatives planned to take her to the doctor Monday. But Alicia went to bed Sunday and never woke up.

One current and two former Los Angeles Airport Police officers have filed a lawsuit accusing department officials of discriminating against white officers and giving black officers preferential treatment in promotions and disciplinary action. The suit, filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleges that black officers were promoted over whites despite receiving lower scores on promotional exams and that white officers were disciplined more harshly for misconduct compared with black officers facing similar accusations.

When a local dry-cleaner and his wife finally move into their new four-story home, they'll have a convenient downtown location, a drop-dead view, and plenty of room to breathe -- as long as they don't puff out their cheeks too much. Their entire spread will be built on a lot of 20 feet by 20 feet -- an area about the size of a deluxe room at the Four Seasons Biltmore just down the highway.

The usual gunshots, firecrackers, and even a pipe bomb kept police scrambling New Year's Eve, but what really got 1993 off with a bang for law enforcement officials was the arrival of the state's new seat belt law. Police reported no major incidents except for a large pipe bomb explosion in Simi Valley in which no one was hurt. Some windows were shattered, however, and the blast was heard as far as two miles away, Simi Valley Police Sgt. Arch Morgan said.
