Sinatra's letter to Calendar came at the right time for me. I am a 60-year-old singer who should be in "The Guiness Book of Records" for still trying and hoping to get discovered. Mr. Sinatra's letter was uplifting. He not only understands the lyrics to his songs but he also has a true understanding of people and their feelings. JOHN DANIELS Glendora Women Conductors

In a memoir that skillfully blends the monastic spirit of a self-imposed retreat with the isolation of the wilderness, Oregon poet and nonfiction writer John Daniel recounts his experience living nearly five midwinter months in the Rogue River Gorge. At 52, Daniel takes stock of his life with a well-supplied cabin as hermitage, and wild turkeys, bobcats and owls as confreres.

I read Roland Wolpert's Counterpunch and I saw "For the Boys." I was so very disappointed in the film. I don't always agree with critics, but I have to admit they are more often right than wrong. I agree with the review by Kenneth Turan. The movie got very heavy a lot of the time, and I thought to myself, "Is this 'A Farewell to Arms' I'm watching?" I like Bette Midler, but only some of the time in this long, overdone and not very convincing film. The audience in this film, all the time, seemed to be overdoing their excitement for the stars.

Seventy-seven days into his search for deep solitude in the misty forest of the Rogue River canyon, John Daniel was hard up against it. There was no more comfort to be found in chopping wood, tending the garden, taking long tramps through the woods hunting grouse, fishing for steelhead or even giving himself a buzz cut with the electric clippers. Cranky and restless, he rummaged through newspapers in the kindling box next to the wood stove for a crossword puzzle.

Either John Daniels is just modest, he's lying or he's really going to be unhittable when he gets comfortable on the mound. Daniels, a JetHawk right-handed reliever, pitched three more innings Monday without allowing an earned run, giving him 20 1/3 innings with an 0.00 earned-run average. Still, Daniels said he's not pitching as well as he can. "Actually, I don't feel that great," he said. "I'm walking guys [seven] and I never walk guys." That aside, Daniels has done little wrong.

CLARET HAS BEEN a gentleman's preoccupation, it seems, for time without measure. The clear red wines were prized by the Romans and developed when today's Bordeaux was known as Aquitania. As the wines evolved, the delicate grape varieties such as Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet franc, Carmenere and Malbec were favored for making them. But after a plague destroyed most of the vineyards, the hardy Cabernet Sauvignon grape emerged as the dominant variety.

An incredibly precious, wonderful, goofy rigmarole of a novel, and incidentally, a handbook on how to live, how to play life like a big game and get the maximum amount of fun at it. It's the BEST.

Artie Shaw, the renowned Swing Era clarinetist, has long had an interest in writing. Even during his first musical successes in the mid-'30s, he was attracted to writing as a private endeavor that could present an alternative--and possibly even a lucrative one--to the life of celebrity he found increasingly oppressive. So he wrote, and continues to write.
