Mrs. Franco's logic escapes me. First she says that she came to agree with her husband that their workloads should be along "traditional" lines. She then blames the women's movement because she has a double workload, while her husband's workload hasn't increased. What the women's movement taught us was that when two people work outside the home, two people work inside the home. If she really wants a traditional arrangement, she would quit her outside job.

Since Cathie Wright and Marian La Follette both wish to represent the 19th Senate District, it would be nice if they could start by dealing with some issues of importance to other women in this district. Where do they differ (or not) on the abortion issue, on pay equity, on child care, etc.? There are enough real issues to go around. Let's hear about them. MIRIAM ALBERT Thousand Oaks

The next time our Thousand Oaks City Council members make an artistic determination, I suggest that they only consider local talent. The way it is now, Antoine Predock--who has his office in Albuquerque--can contemplate his art from afar. Very afar. Neither he nor the writer for Architecture Magazine--who, referring to our Horror off the Highway, calls it "a welcome metaphor for the arid landscape of Thousand Oaks"--has to drive by our cellblock every day. The way things are now, the Civic Arts Plaza stands as a monument to remind passing taxpayers to think thrice about whom they vote once.

I did not attend the rally against the so-called "Waste of Tax Dollars." The speaker, Assemblyman Tom McClintock (R-Thousand Oaks), is the same guy who proposed tax breaks for people who own Arabian horses. I do not now, nor can I ever, support anyone with his governmental priorities. As some attendee commented, "You vote with your wallet, right?" I do, partially. I also vote with my conscience and my conviction that it is my responsibility to make tomorrow better for our children.

Now we know what Frank Schillo thinks about his constituents: We are much too stupid to find 199 Hillcrest Road. The Thousand Oaks mall just across the street from that office and the fire station next door with those big yellow shiny trucks. But it seems that Mr. Schillo's "edifice complex" can only be soothed by an additional 1,300 feet and $3,323 a month of taxpayers' dollars so that he can be "more accessible." Shivers go down my spine just remembering the adventure of discovering Maria VanderKolk's, as well as, Madge Schaefer's office when they occupied that same 199 Hillcrest address.

Because a "political novice" is wealthy enough to lend his own campaign $40,000 is hardly an endorsement ("Political Novice Takes Fund-Raising Lead," March 25). We are told more about Alan Guggenheim by his raising only $600 of his $54,540 locally. It tells me that we have a rich kid-type who has far-right friends in Orange County that are willing to help him buy himself an Assembly district. I think that the people of the new 37th Assembly District will not be for sale to the highest bidder.

A rose may be a rose, but what's in a name is not the same. Take the Starrs, for example ("Judge Rejects . . . Slander Case," Sept. 4). Hank Starr is a candidate for the California state Senate, 19th District. He is a judge pro-tem of the Superior Court. Hank Starr is not, nor is he related to, Robert "Nick" Starr, who is involved with the Ventura Port District board of commissioners and their litigation. So by all means, keep the Starrs in your eyes but remember that the Starr on the ballot is Hank Starr.

Re "Doubling Up on Daylight Saving Is a Bright Idea," Ventura County Life, April 1. If the deprecatory tone of this column was in honor of April Fools Day it was a very lame attempt at humor. Considering California's energy situation, keeping daylight saving time all year long is an idea whose time has certainly come. Daylight saving time plus an extra hour from May to September is a winning proposition for everyone, except the out-of-state power corporations that are making billions at our expense.

Re "Carl Olson: A Crusader With a Legislative Agenda Sets His Sights on the Auto Club Board," Ventura County Perspective, Feb. 18. As a member for more than 10 years, I can attest to the fact that the Automobile Club of Southern California does more than just help stranded drivers on the freeway. The club also helps to plan trips and cruises. It insures my cars as well as my home. This is a service organization. I am perfectly content with my own choice of political party. If my dues or insurance premiums are going to be used to support political action, the club will lose my membership so quickly it will feel the breeze of my departure.
