Poor old Beverly Hills real estate agent Jeffrey Hyland, who, along with his shuddering, sniffing and reminiscing Westside associates, cannot separate the twin concepts of "hot tubs" and "canyon living" ("Where'd All Those Darn Hot Tubs Go?" by Laura Accinelli, Aug. 4). His further singling out of Topanga Canyon as a prime example of an outmoded lifestyle only shows he has no idea of what Topanga is all about in the '90s. Why doesn't Hyland saddle up his Rover and come up for an eye-opening tour of our community?

Now, a Beverly Hills estate is being offered for lease at $600,000 a month, dwarfing the $150,000 a month asked for summer months at Malibu's finest properties or the $100,000 a month paid by singing legend Michael Jackson for his last residence in Holmby Hills.

Is everybody suddenly down and out in Beverly Hills? It would seem that way from a new study that lists the country's 50 most expensive suburbs but somehow doesn't include Los Angeles' ermine enclave. Authors of the report say that, far from intending to slight Beverly Hills, they have handed the city its highest honor.
