I was very upset to read Edward J. Boyer's article about the plight of the golf teachers at Rancho Park Golf Course ("The Wise Man of Rancho Park," Dec. 14). Removing them strikes me as wrong. Having a PGA card is not a prerequisite for being a good teacher. I hope steps will be taken to keep them employed. Josh Goldstein Via the Internet Editor's note: Representatives from the office of L.A. City Council member Jack Weiss and the Department of Recreation and Parks recently met with the management at Rancho Park Golf Course.

Changes to the rules of golf don't come often. But when they do, it's sure to create plenty of discussion. On Tuesday, as expected, the talk started as both the U.S. Golf Assn. and the Royal & Ancient Golf Club banned what is commonly referred to as belly putting, or anchoring a club against your body while making a stroke. The long club is not being outlawed, just that stroke. The ban takes effect in 2016. "The traditional stroke involves swinging the club with both the club and the gripping hands held away from the body, requiring the player to direct and control the movement of the entire club," USGA President Glen Nager said in a statement.

Construction is scheduled to start next month on a system of storm drains along and near the southern edge of Rancho Park Golf Course.

Four streets in the area--Lorenzo Drive, Cresta Drive, Monte Mar Drive and Cresta Place--will be closed to through traffic some of the time while the work is being done.

Raymond Floyd tried the Ralphs Senior Classic on for size and it was a perfect fit. Floyd, breaking out of the pack with three birdies on the first five holes Sunday at Rancho Park, held off the challenge of Isao Aoki to win the $600,000 tournament by three shots. In his sixth appearance on the Senior PGA Tour, Floyd set a tournament record with a final-round nine-under-par 62 and a 54-hole total of 195, 18 under par and a record by five shots.

If you drive through Cheviot Hills and Rancho Park and see the orange-and-black signs peppering front lawns, you might get the impression that these neighborhoods solidly oppose the coming of the Expo light-rail line. "Kids and Trains Don't Mix," they shout, and "Don't Let the Train Block the Road. " But the reality is quite different. Every weekend for the last couple of months, a group of us have been walking door to door, talking to our neighbors about the Expo Line that will soon connect our community to downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica and points in between.

John Edmond Jr., a popular longtime instructor at the storied Rancho Park Golf Course in West Los Angeles whose threatened job loss in 2003 sparked a flood of protest, died Monday at a West Hills hospice. He was 67. The cause was complications of lymphoma, said his daughter, Victoria Edmond-Davis. Edmond, who trained hundreds of players during his 37 years as a teaching pro at the city-owned course, was known for his ability to instill confidence and improve his students' games with hands-on instruction, uncomplicated advice and a buoyant outlook about life as well as about golf.

THANK YOU, Joe Robinson, for your extremely relevant and perceptive "When Parking Gets Personal," March 20, on the quandary of community social relations and the volume of cars in most of Los Angeles. I have, thus far, not been too bedeviled by this, but my dear mother who lives close by has indeed. It is a constant concern of hers. Her immediate neighbor, who is a very decent woman otherwise, turned her garage into a bedroom, I believe, and her cars et al.

I never thought it would happen, but here we were, driving away from our house and garden for the last time, leaving our beloved California, moving to a new state. After friends and neighbors, I suppose what I'll most miss is the dirt. Gardeners will understand. Good soil is hard to come by, and this neighborhood had good soil to begin with -- what's called sandy loam, easy to dig in yet rich enough to make plants grow big and fast.

Glenn Bunting 9 HANDICAP Torrey Pines (San Diego): SoCal's Pebble. Where else can public walk on and play U.S. Open course? Worth every penny. Great views. Stay at the lodge and play South & North. Rancho Park (Los Angeles): Great history. Great track. The gem of LA munis. Green fees under $30 won't last forever. Par threes all tough. Don't miss Arnie's plaque on No. 18 tee. Rustic Canyon (Moorpark): A touch of Scotland in Simi Valley. Terrific bargain. Friendly staff.

Six thousand feet up Cuyamaca Peak, more than a month into springtime, a frigid wind blew fog around giant blackened conifers. Ice pellets clicked down through the trees' naked boughs as Michael Wells crouched amid a scattering of second-year pine seedlings. He had begun to wonder whether a new generation of pines could get a foothold here.
