He may not have any extra funding from the bankruptcy-strapped county, but Superior Court Judge David T. McEachen isn't letting that stop him from starting a small drug court program aimed at rehabilitating nonviolent addicts. McEachen and other court officials, working closely with Santa Ana and a soon-to-be-formed nonprofit fund-raising group, have started a pilot program for 25 felony drug possession offenders.

Re "Big Oil buys Berkeley," Opinion, March 24 Jennifer Washburn's critique of BP's $500-million grant to a Berkeley-led consortium to research biofuels contains misinterpretations of our proposed research contract. Washburn states that "there is nothing in the plan that calls for truly independent selection of research proposals." On the contrary, faculty and scientists at UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, all partners in the Energy Biosciences Institute, will propose their own projects, with an executive committee composed of a majority of academics deciding which will be funded.

Students at Poinsettia School were the first to tour the Pollution Prevention House during classes Monday. The house, 22 feet wide in front, 12 feet deep and 8 feet high, contains educational messages and artists' renderings. The goal is to teach students how their actions in the home and garden affect the environment. "We learned what can be used to clean faucets and what should not go down the kitchen or bathroom faucet because it drains to the ocean," said fourth-grader Ruthie Craft.

Water for the people who live in the desert we know as Los Angeles is serious business. Water is scarce here--we import the vast majority we use. Making sure there is no shortage requires a long-term view and creative solutions. Ten years ago, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, at the urging of an unlikely partner, the Mono Lake Committee, introduced a significant water recycling program, the East Valley Water Reclamation Project, as a safe, reliable water supply for Los Angeles.

Last week as I was driving on the Harbor Freeway, I looked at the sign showing the coming events at the Coliseum and I thought to myself: "Now that the Raiders are gone, the Forum and the Olympic Auditorium are the only places left in L.A. that still have fights." DANNY SANCHEZ Huntington Beach

One of the world's most sumptuous and storied auditoriums, the 119-year-old Paris Opera House, ended its season this week and prepared to shut down for a two-year, $50-million restoration. The project, the most extensive in the Opera House's history, will focus on the vast stage, one of the world's largest, and the horseshoe-shaped auditorium. It will include cleaning, repairs and the addition of more modern backstage equipment.

To help reduce air pollution, Ventura County and its cities have teamed up for the second year on Project Clean Cut. The program, which returns this weekend, offers residents a financial incentive to trade in their gasoline-powered lawn mowers for electric ones. The first 425 county residents to trade in their mowers at participating metal recyclers will receive $100 vouchers toward the purchase of an electric mower.

By the hundreds of thousands each year, they sail to Avalon by ferry and cruise ship for diving trips, glass-bottom boat tours and to lounge on the beach in the Catalina Island town 26 miles off the Southern California coast. Yet the same crystal-clear water that draws tourists also harbors an embarrassing hazard. For most of the last decade, Avalon Harbor Beach has ranked among the most polluted in the state, tainted with human sewage that puts swimmers at risk. Even though the city of 4,000 has spent $3.5 million testing and rehabilitating sewer lines, the water is no cleaner.

Back in the late '60s when I first started making furniture out of plastic (PVC) pipe, the idea was still in its infancy. I made a few sling chairs for the beach, a glass-topped coffee table that appeared in Popular Science, a system of circular shelves affixed to a center post and a few other projects. Then I went back to working with wood and pretty much forgot about pipe furniture. Then, to my surprise, the stuff started showing up in some pretty fancy stores, at prices to match.

A judge has ordered work stopped on a city project that involves dredging the Grand Canal area of the contentious Ballona wetlands. The order, by a San Francisco Superior Court judge, came two days after the Wetlands Action Network filed a lawsuit against the city and the San Francisco-based California Coastal Commission, which approved the project in November. The group contends the project would wipe out fish and marine invertebrates in the canal.
