On Oct. 19, letter writer Jim Easton suggested that you print pictures of the effects of the 1982 El Nino on Ventura County. I also live in the South Bank neighborhood of Oxnard and would be interested to see how the area was affected then and predictions on how it will be affected this year due to El Nino. We survived the supposedly 100-year storms over the last few years without flooding. Are we to expect worse this year? PAT KANE Oxnard

In the Jan. 18 edition on page B3, you published a photograph of two kids on a bicycle who are not wearing helmets. They are violating not only the law that requires helmets but also the law that prohibits doubling-up on bicycles. This kind of photograph sets a wrong example for kids who will be reading the paper. I have seen kids in our neighborhood riding around without their helmets and have seen what happens in the emergency rooms. I have fallen twice myself with a helmet, so I know well of what I speak.

Thank you for continuing to print pictures of bicyclists wearing helmets. Having criticized you in the past for non-helmet pictures, I must acknowledge your attention to this most important area. With all the talk of El Nino and 1982, why don't you show the damage and extent of flooding from that time? We live behind the River Ridge Golf Course and the two landfills next to it and none of that was here at that time, I think. It would be very helpful for all the new residents and those old ones next to the changed landscape to have some idea of what happened then and what may happen now. JIM EASTON Oxnard EDITOR'S NOTE Next Sunday is the final day The Times will publish letters about issues on the Nov. 4 ballot.

After Jim Easton was told last year that his services as president and chief executive officer of a ceramics firm were no longer needed, his company hooked him up with an "outplacement" counselor to soften the blow and help him find another job. The counselor, from Irvine-based Executive Horizons, helped him feel "less fearful of what's going on in the outside world. He gave me a road map, a helping hand," said Easton, now an entrepreneur with his own business in San Diego. Easton is grateful that his former employer gave him someone to talk to. "Usually you're in a situation where you're being dumped, and it doesn't feel good," said Easton, who asked that his real name not be used.

Cleanup and confession were the dominant Olympic themes emanating from here Thursday as the Salt Lake Organizing Committee named a new president and an American member of the International Olympic Committee admitted giving a job to the son of an IOC member who resigned last month because of the bribery scandal.

Now that IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch has ruled out dog sledding as a possible addition to the Winter Olympics, how about ski archery? It could happen. A prominent member of the IOC, Jim Easton of Los Angeles, is pushing it. He, not coincidentally, is also president of the International Archery Federation. He describes the sport, which will hold its first world championship this month, as biathlon with a bow and arrow.

Regarding "What is USC's biggest game?" (Nov. 13): Jim Easton's comment, "Football fans everywhere know who won the SC-Notre Dame game" is not only quite true, but also self-evident. It doesn't take a "Rocket" scientist (or a Notre Dame grad) to know who won this game last year, the last five years, or the last seven years. It is like asking who won the last Michigan-Northwestern game. Let's face it, the USC-Notre Dame game is the biggest game for the Trojans due to a simple fact: USC has not won in eight years.

A major bat manufacturer filed suit Friday in U.S. District Court to block a proposed NCAA rule change that would put stricter limits on aluminum bats. Easton Sports, of Van Nuys, is seeking triple damages of $267 million. The suit is a response to Thursday's recommendation by the NCAA baseball rules committee that bats should be made heavier and should not produce a batted-ball speed of more than 93 mph, about 20 mph slower than currently.
