Myrna Oliver's well-written story on the Weingart Center's food coupon was an important contribution to the discussion on serving the needs of homeless people in Los Angeles (Metro, Sept. 8). Weingart Center President Maxene Johnston's idea of food coupons instead of cash for panhandlers is the kind of creative program that will truly make things better in downtown Los Angeles.

Some in the news business say a guy like Jim Wood has ink in his veins. He wrote a column on and off for several years at the Newport Beach-Costa Mesa Pilot as well as for the Orange County Metropolitan. This morning, Wood ups the ante with the debut of his own newspaper--the Coaster. The free-circulation tabloid is scheduled to appear on the first and third Saturdays of every month in the Corona del Mar area.

"The Westside Real Estate Wars," by Nina J. Easton (Jan. 31), accurately depicted the dramatic, and usually evenhanded, infighting that goes on in our multibillion-dollar business. With 20 years in the business, I can't recall a journalist so skillfully capturing the essence of the residential resale market. I made copies for everyone on our staff.

LATC Grant: Los Angeles' Community Redevelopment Agency voted Thursday to give a $478,000 subsidy to the Los Angeles Theatre Center, slightly less than half the proposed figure. The allotment was based on the amount estimated necessary to complete the 1990-91 fall/winter LATC season. CRA Chairman Jim Wood said, "The board accepted its obligation to the season ticket holders for the scheduled performances."

A coalition of labor unions and community organizations Tuesday announced an upcoming march in Los Angeles against Proposition 187, calling it a "vicious, mean-spirited measure" that would cost the state millions of dollars to implement. The Oct. 16 march, sponsored by the National Coordinating Committee for Citizenship & Civic Participation, will start in East Los Angeles and end at City Hall. Californians will vote on the measure in the Nov. 8 general election.

Condemnation proceedings were approved Wednesday on downtown commercial and residential properties in the path of a $310-million, 30-acre expansion of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the objections of several property owners, who said they are not being offered enough for their land, the city's Community Redevelopment Agency commission voted to begin eminent domain action to take about 25 parcels still needed to expand the facility south of Pico Boulevard near Figueroa Street.

We must demand, and hope, that our Congress remain vigilant against corporate raids on employee pension funds (editorial, Oct. 17). Employees do not always get an accounting of funds, as required by law, until the money has been "allocated" to other accounts by the corporations. The beer wholesaler where I worked for 16 years as public relations director eliminated my position seven months ago. I still do not have any of the $87,000 from my corporate profit- sharing fund. The federal law allows for immediate disbursement of one-half the amount owed to an employee.

"Getting It Together" (Dec.24) was a wonderful story of a mother's victory over cocaine addiction and subsequent reuniting with two children. However, one item bothered me. And it bothers me in most coverage of the drug problem. I refer to the mention of the mother's "$700-a-day crack cocaine habit." That comes to almost $5,000 a week, more $20,000 a month and more than a quarter of a million dollars a year. Just for drugs. Where does a heavy-set, semiskilled mother of two come up with that kind of money?

The Iditarod Trail Committee demands the humane treatment of sled dogs. Our position is clear: Mushers who won't abide by our humane standards are removed from the race, sometimes permanently. Your March 3 Morning Briefing contains grossly incorrect and unsubstantiated statements about Iditarod, particularly the description of sled dogs at the finish line. Sled dogs receive prerace veterinary examinations to determine their fitness. As they proceed up the trail, they are monitored by about 30 veterinarians.
