Ventura County Sheriff John Gillespie has a toy gallows on his desk labeled "Executive Problem Solver." The black-humor touch provides a clue to both his personality and his crime-fighting philosophy. One moment, Gillespie cracks a smile, remembering himself as a young Claremont policeman assigned as a bodyguard to Jane Fonda during her frequent visits to Tom Hayden at anti-war demonstrations in the Claremont area. "I think I was there when love was born," he said.

John Gillespie, the self-proclaimed "intercultural specialist" who defended Japan's closed and anti-competitive business practices (Commentary, Dec. 18), ignored a few pertinent facts and demonstrated some pretty faulty logic. Since becoming the largest shareholder in Japan's Koito Manufacturing nearly two years ago, my requests have been rather simple. As a 26% owner of the company, I want the opportunity to participate in the long-term management of the company. I believe I'm entitled to the same representation rights Japanese shareholders expect when they acquire Columbia Pictures, MCA or other American companies.

Forging ahead with plans to set up a "tent city" for minor drug offenders, Ventura County Sheriff John V. Gillespie said Wednesday that he has located a site for the encampment at the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Port Hueneme.

I have been thoroughly enjoying the daily "Readers Remember," especially since I have lived through most of the events described. On Dec. 21 I was touched by Christopher Magee's piece about his brother, John Gillespie Magee, the RCAF pilot who wrote one of my favorite poems, "High Flight." Thank you for sharing the personal details of his untimely death and the history of the poem. I appreciate it. SISTER RITA ANGERMAN Northridge

Got wine? The wine industry hopes you do, and to stir up demand for its products, it plans a campaign of generic advertising, much as the dairy industry does with milk and cheese. The ads are being developed by Bozell Worldwide, the agency that dreamed up the "milk mustache" ads featuring athletes and other celebrities. "We're taking a humorous approach to attract infrequent wine drinkers," said John Gillespie, president of the Larkspur-based Wine Market Council, which is behind the campaign.

Sheriff John Gillespie is recognized throughout the state for the quality of his leadership and, in particular, for the innovative approach he brings to law enforcement. Recent news stories indicate John Gillespie is at it again. In his 1990 "State of the Jails" report, Gillespie proposed a "tent city" with a boot-camp regimen set up at the Seabee base at Port Hueneme to house convicted drug users whose time would be served working on public works projects. This could well be a refreshingly direct and cost-effective solution to a host of interrelated problems: relief of jail crowding, substance-abuse counseling, efficient supervision of inmates and the separation of misdemeanor offenders from felons and violent criminals.

Ventura County Sheriff Larry Carpenter will officially announce his entry into the 1994 county sheriff's race Thursday. This will be Carpenter's first bid for an elected position. A former undersheriff, the lifelong Fillmore resident was appointed to the sheriff's post Jan. 1 by the county Board of Supervisors. Carpenter, 47, is serving the remaining two years of former Sheriff John Gillespie's term. Gillespie retired in 1992, citing health reasons. "I'm not a politician," Carpenter said.

An early morning joy ride in a New York City bus ended Wednesday when the alleged thief unwittingly tripped an emergency switch, flashing the message "CALL POLICE!" on the bus's destination sign, authorities said. John Gillespie, 26, of Queens Village in the borough of Queens, was arrested by a Nassau County police officer who spotted the bus just outside city limits, said Officer Frank Messana, a spokesman for the suburban police force.

Ventura County Sheriff John Gillespie announced in Camarillo Thursday night that he will be a candidate for sheriff in next June's election. Gillespie was appointed by the county Board of Supervisors in 1982 to succeed Sheriff Al Jalaty, who retired. Gillespie, 45, made the announcement in Camarillo before an audience of about 150 of his supporters at a cocktail party. "What better time than now to make my official announcement?" Gillespie asked. "I'm now going to seek another term as sheriff."
