A home with sweeping views of the city: That's how restaurateur Dave Chasen envisioned the house designed for him and his family in 1954 by architect Paul Williams. With its walls of glass, and focus on the California indoor-outdoor lifestyle, the home is acknowledged by many in the real estate community as one of the most spectacular view estates in the L.A. area.

This is the first time I have written a letter in regard to a column in the Real Estate Section of Sunday's paper, but I felt compelled to do so after yesterday's (Feb. 21) article "California, Here I Go." My wife and I both read the article and had identical reactions: Why in the world would you print such an article? Given the status of the economy and the real estate market in the Southland, this was, at the very least, a strange article. Perhaps The Times has concluded that the majority of your subscribers are thinking of relocating to another state and, as a reward for years of loyalty, you are now telling them exactly where to go!

Well, it has finally happened. I knew it would eventually. The Sunday Real Estate Section has totally disappeared. First, they eliminated nearly all the garden features, then Remodeler's Diary, then it became only a two- or three-page section. Even my small local paper managed to put out a two-page real estate section on the holiday weekend. But The Times had absolutely nothing. Hello back there. Is anybody listening? Please bring back my Sunday Real Estate Section with more remodeling and gardening articles, otherwise, I'll have no reason to get up on Sundays and no excuses for not getting dressed until 10 a.m. CAROLYN LINGOR El Monte
