The sad fate of Crystal Cove is yet another example of how bureaucracy is spoiling the once idyllic life in Southern California. This picturesque community will give way to commerce, i.e, super-modern rentals, concession stands with junk food, parking lots, etc. John Kelso-Shelton states that not developing Crystal Cove into a commercial enterprise is a betrayal of public trust. We have heard doublespeak before. SADI HAYASHI Van Nuys

The unfortunate controversy surrounding the personal comments of a medical adviser to the Australian Olympic basketball team do not reflect the views of the Australian Olympic Committee or the Australian government. Australia will not boycott the Barcelona Olympics. We will field a basketball team and we hope to have an opportunity to play the U.S. I am deeply concerned that Australia's high standing may have been unfairly tarnished by the incautious remarks of one person. Of course, all Australians are entitled to express their own opinions.

--Fatima Amatulla walked into a Society National Bank branch in Cleveland dressed in a long black dress and a veil, but bank security officers forced her to leave before she could pay a $92 telephone bill. "I told (the guard) we dress like this all the time, and I told him that I just wanted to pay a bill, not cash a check," Amatulla said. "But I guess fear of what you can't see makes them jittery. I wonder if they treat all (Muslim) sisters with veiled faces like that."

Orange County military families with loved ones in the Persian Gulf have been left exhausted and confused by developments in Washington, Moscow and Baghdad, which at once seem to promise of peace but speak of war. Most families, however, seem resigned that a ground war is necessary and will happen soon. "It's like a bad tooth. Pull it out and get it over with," said Anita Millhollin, a Garden Grove woman whose 30-year-old son, Timothy, is on the front lines with the Marines in Saudi Arabia.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" boasts 2 million hardback copies in print after spending three years on national bestseller lists, but unless you already knew those facts you'd never guess them from the uninvolving film that Clint Eastwood has cobbled together from bits and pieces of the original story. It's not necessary to have read John Berendt's nonfiction book about a murder trial set amid the brandy-soaked decadence of Savannah, Ga.
