No one had to jog Lucas Martin's memory. The All-American from La Jolla High School boys' soccer team wouldn't forget the sudden-death quarterfinal loss to the Ramona boys' soccer team two years ago, nor the broken left ankle he suffered in that game when he was tackled by a Ramona player. It forced him to sit out for three months. Ramona remembers Martin.

Athletes from San Pasqual High School broke five Avocado League records Saturday at the league track and field finals at MiraCosta College. Hurdler Andrea Miller of San Pasqual set a league record in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles with a time of 45.93. Trinessa Boyd of San Pasqual leaped 35 feet, 1 inch to win the triple jump, eclipsing the record of 34-21 1/2 by El Camino's Renelda Thomas at last year's finals. The San Pasqual relay teams set records in the 400 meters (49.

Jud Buechler was back in town Thursday night but not in a Poway High School uniform. Buechler, Poway's San Diego Section Player of the Year last season, is now a freshman at the University of Arizona, which played San Diego State Thursday. Still, without Buechler--and without Dominick Johnson and Andy Byrne--three-time defending 3-A champion Poway opened its quest for a fourth consecutive title with a 40-36 victory over host Point Loma.

My thanks to Steven Barrie-Anthony for detailing the fight to preserve the historic Ramona apartments ("Idyllic ... and Endangered," June 24). So many of the Southland's architectural gems, large and small, have been lost to the wrecking ball through shortsightedness and greed. Why are we still having this conversation? The Ramona and buildings like it are living history, preserving a glimpse of a slower, gentler L.A. West Hollywood has plenty of uninspired late-20th century concrete apartments and condos.

San Diego County sheriff's deputies Saturday arrested the husband of one of two Ramona women who have been missing for more than two years and said the man will be charged with two counts of murder. Authorities said the arrest of Russell Laverne Klein, 38, a handyman, may solve a suspected double slaying that has frustrated investigators in the rural community.

I am outraged by the actions of the sheriff's bomb squad in Ramona--blowing up a box of kittens ("Bomb Squad Bombs Out on a Bundle of Kittens," Oct. 28). What has this world come to when the affirmation that a living creature(s) is inside a box prompts officials to decide to blow it up? If it weren't so pathetic, it might be funny. And what if the box had contained a rattlesnake, as feared by the macho members of the squad? Big deal. It is not uncommon for folks in rural areas like Ramona to run into rattlers now and again, and I bet there aren't any that run to the shed for a stick of TNT when they do. Heaven help us if the squad ever suspects a bear to be in a box--they would probably call for nuclear weapons to be deployed.

Granted, not everyone has it in his blood to adopt a homeless kid from overseas. That's probably one of the few things--maybe the only thing--in common between Betty Ahrensberg, a Spring Valley, Calif., tax return preparer, and Leonard Johnson, a car dealer in Edna, Tex.
