Tom Jacobson, president of the Southern Section executive committee, offered a possible compromise Wednesday to settle the Santa Margarita High School controversy but was immediately rebuffed. "What if we allowed Santa Margarita to compete in a public league, but the school had no bearing on the league championship?" Jacobson said at a meeting Wednesday. In other words, the Eagles could compete in an Orange County league, but could not win a championship or an automatic berth into the Southern Section playoffs.

With apologies to Texas and Florida, there's a 10-mile stretch in south Orange County that has as much if not more football talent than those two states. The competition among Santa Margarita, Tesoro and Mission Viejo high schools for landing that talent is fierce. "You could probably put a pin in the middle and probably within three or four miles of that point, you'd be able to touch each of the three schools, and it's truly amazing, the football success," Santa Margarita Coach Harry Welch said.

I read the editorial (April 4) against my bill, SB 123, and thought some facts might be appropriate. Your headline, for example: "Give Wedaa, AQMD and Business a Break." The Wedaa and AQMD part I understand, but business? Not being as enlightened as The Times, I frankly don't see how opposing SB 123 equals "giving business a break." As for the SCAQMD's argument, which you implicitly endorse, that the super-majority "helps maintain its commitment to clean air because members have a clear mandate to act on behalf of cities they represent"--it's just a smoke screen.

The letter to the editor from Patricia McGuigan, president of the Orange County League of California Cities (Sept. 16), was the first public statement I've seen in over a year from this important group; let's hope it's the last for an era or so. In defending her committee's role in the transportation woes of the county, Ms. McGuigan has but one paltry offering, an innocuous reference to a monthly meeting held to "coordinate transportation projects."...

Let me be the first to express my support and gratitude to Councilman John F. Kelly of Tustin for demanding a full explanation as to how disgusting porno film could have been slipped into the recent Orange County League of Cities dinner. Councilman Kelly, at his young age of 25, has shown far more maturity and sense than his elders who were present and attempted to dismiss this issue with such frivolity. The comments made by the mayor of Cypress were disgraceful. To criticize Kelly for his concern is an absolute outrage to all of the decent people of Orange County.

When I visited New York City last year, our tour guide took us to the top of the Empire State Building after dark. As I looked out at the high-rise buildings and bright lights, what impressed me most was the park land preserved in the midst of a metropolis. I realized that some individuals in 1863 looked ahead and created a place of respite called Central Park. The people of Orange County have an opportunity to save El Toro as oasis for now and for the future. DOROTHY CHAPMAN San Clemente Now that the Board of Supervisors has certified the so-called Safe and Healthy Communities Initiative, county voters should understand one thing: The measure has precious little to do with jails and landfills.

Here's a look at the pair and the district.: The District Covers a densely populated, ethnically diverse section of central Orange County including Fountain Valley and large parts of Santa Ana, Garden Grove and Westminster.

Team doctors and trainers from Saddleback and Santa Ana high schools surrounded Jose Avalos Friday night after the Saint lineman had been injured in the fourth quarter of their football game. They couldn't diagnose the injury, but they knew it could be serious--Avalos had suffered a blow to the neck or head while making a tackle on Saddleback tailback Nate Primous.

The two-year battle to realign Orange County's 10 high school athletic leagues is finally over, at least for another three years. On Thursday the Southern Section executive council voted overwhelmingly to approve the county releaguing committee's proposal. The changes, which will begin in the fall, will continue through the 2001-2002 school year. Four county leagues will be affected. Laguna Hills and Aliso Niguel will leave the Pacific Coast League to join the Sea View League.

Claudia Gassin did not need a needlepoint Christmas stocking. What the Irvine homemaker needed as she sat along the sidelines of her children's various soccer, basketball and baseball games was a diversion, a little something to occasionally pull her eyes, ears and emotions away from that trickiest position in youth sports--the sidelines. So she did needlepoint. When the heat picked up, so did Gassin's needle.
