Many thanks for increasing the theater listings in The Guide. I'm a theater buff (in O.C.) and also travel to L.A. for productions. Nice to have a comprehensive set of listings. Also these listings are a way to get the word out on productions at those small theaters that already operate on shoestring budgets. John Lane Stanton

Ventura County supervisor candidate John Lane received a $10,000 contribution from a union representing sheriff's deputies, records show. The labor group was Lane's only monetary donor during the three-week period ended Jan. 19. House Graphics in Costa Mesa gave Lane campaign signs worth $1,896. Lane, a Moorpark fraud investigator, is attempting to unseat 4th District Supervisor Judy Mikels in the March 5 primary. He is backed mostly by law enforcement unions.

OK, let me see if I got this right. Billionaire David Murdock wants us to elect Randy Hoffman and Judy Mikels to the Ventura County Board of Supervisors so he can make Hidden Valley a city so the new city can pave Potrero Road. But wait, Murdock wants us to not concern ourselves with the road yet, not to worry about cityhood yet, just get his politicians on the board first. The county is saying that it has 545 miles of road and can only afford to repave 10 miles a year. At this rate, a road has to last for more than 54 years.

Puzzle makers Sylvia Bursztyn and Barry Tunick are usually quite knowledgeable in their science-related clues, but in their March 18 crossword they had a little math confusion. The common clue for 35 and 77 across was "geometry abbr." The answers were COS (for cosine) and COSEC (for cosecant). However, these two terms are used in trigonometry, not geometry.

Jack Cotter, a popular teacher at Brashear High School, was found slumped against a wall and bleeding from a gash in his skull Tuesday. A bloody 3-pound hammer lay close by. Cotter was listed in serious condition Thursday at Mercy Hospital.

I was disappointed to learn of Daystar's challenge to the sale of KOCE-TV to the KOCE-TV Foundation (July 10). Is it the law of the land that a station be sold to the highest bidder? Certainly, the Coast Community College District can choose a buyer that would continue PBS affiliation and serve viewers in Los Angeles and Orange County. The Texas-based Daystar, a Christian broadcast network, is certainly not clear what benefit it would bring to Southern California viewers since there is no shortage of religious stations to serve that niche.

A military helicopter crashed Friday in northern Afghanistan and killed all 15 people on board, including Associated Press reporter Sharon Herbaugh, aid workers said. Herbaugh, 39, was chief of the AP bureau in Islamabad, Pakistan, and had for more than four years covered the Afghan civil war and its aftermath. Also killed in the crash was Natasha Singh, 25, of Oakland, Calif., a free-lance journalist based in New Delhi, the workers said.

The Disney organization has done it again. I assume the new Angels' logo is supposed to be something to do with angel wings. However, at a first glance it resembles a pigeon climbing the letter A. Last year's logo was a CA symbol, which always reminded me of a U.S. Postal abbreviation. There was a time when we had a nifty logo: a halo over the letter A. It was simple, clever and memorable. But we had to get rid of it to show that Disney management is doing its job in revamping the Angels.
