Rebecca Andreas of Lee Vining High is believed to be the first female football player voted to an all-league first team in the CIF Southern Section. Andreas, a 5-foot-6, 145-pound junior, was unanimously chosen a first-team offensive guard by the Hi-Lo League coaches last Friday. Lee Vining, located 25 miles north of Mammoth, competes in the eight-man small schools division. Andreas, 15, starts at offensive and defensive guard for the Tigers, who were 1-7.

Six of us backpacked into the Mono Pass area of Yosemite under cloudless blue skies Sept. 17. That night we huddled sleepless in our tents while the first storm of the winter season nearly blew us away. We woke up to snow flurries and hiked out, abandoning our climb of Koip Peak. The next day the ranger said they received 2 inches of snow and closed Tioga Road (Hwy. 120) for the night from Tuolumne Meadows to Lee Vining. Beth Powis Glendale

You finally got it right! On Feb. 17, the lead story on the sports page was about Jackie Chesley, the girl who is having a lot of fun as a starter of Lee Vining's boy's basketball team. Appropriately buried on the back pages were blurbs on Hershiser's greed, Washburn's drugs and Gerald Henderson's petty little snit with Tom Chambers. Real newsworthy stuff! Keep it up, Times. With pros like these, almost all of your readers would rather follow the adventures of the high school kids.

The city of Los Angeles moved to temporarily stop shipping water it has collected in the Mono Lake basin under an order issued by a judge in El Dorado County. The water was ordered held in the city's Grant Lake reservoir, near Lee Vining, until Judge Terrence M. Finney decides later this summer whether the Mono Lake environment is so badly threatened that all exports of water from the area should be halted. Once he issues his decision, the water will either be released into Mono Lake or put back into the Los Angeles Aqueduct.

Re "A high-water mark for Mono Lake," July 24 Thank you for the stories on the rebirth of California's endangered wetlands. I am blessed to have seen Mono Lake the way it used to be before Los Angeles began to take its water. In 1926, when I was 12, my family took me camping in the high Sierra. The way there was hazardous, with narrow, winding roads. Highway 395 was primitive and rough. The land to the east was a vast meadow extending clear to the lake shore. In the near distance, there it was -- the shimmering jewel of Mono Lake.
