When 27-year-old Rick Green won a seat as the youngest member of the Texas House of Representatives two years ago, Gov. George W. Bush nicknamed him "Landslide Green." It was a joke. Green, a conservative Republican from Dripping Springs, had been a loser on election night--just 20 votes behind the Democratic incumbent. It was only after his family persuaded him to request a recount that the tide turned and Green won by 36 votes.

People helping people: I would like to thank the Simi Valley Lions Club and Opel and Ken Moreland and Neil Diamond, optometrist, for their act of kindness in providing me with a special pair of eyeglasses. I recently lost my 25-year profession as a trucker due to diabetes and other health problems. These people have helped me far beyond my ability to afford eyeglasses. It's nice to know there is help out there for people having tough times. RICK GREEN Simi Valley

Well, now. The FBI reports that 58 bank robberies have taken place already this year ("Bank Robberies Occur at a Record Pace," June 19). The FBI speaks of one person who robbed three in four months and was sentenced to four years and three months. Now let's see. With today's "good time' and overcrowded conditions, he might do maybe 1 1/2 years. So it seems crime does pay after all. So let's do the right thing and get out and register and vote now.

This letter is in response to trucker Rick Green's letter (Aug. 31) which resorted to calling the Indian Hills activists names. I am one of those activists. We are not morons or idiots and the fact that we are activists shows that we have a life. We care about our city and especially about our immediate neighborhood. We are not against truckers but resent arrogant drivers who feel traffic laws don't apply to them and who endanger others by obscuring vision by parking illegally on the street on a dangerous curve and block freeway on-ramps and driveways.

Bob Miller, the voice of the Kings since 1973, and his TV broadcast partner, Jim Fox, each signed five-year contracts to continue as the team's broadcasters, the club announced Tuesday. Miller, who did radio/TV simulcasts of games from 1973 through 1990, had said he planned to look into opportunities with the Phoenix Coyotes because his son lives in Arizona. However, he said the decision to remain was easy.

Assemblywoman Sally Tanner (D-El Monte) this week rushed a bill through the Legislature that allows the two remaining members of the Baldwin Park City Council, Bobie Izell and Rick Green, to conduct council business until Aug. 1. Tanner was asked to sponsor the bill after two council members, Mayor Jack B. White and Councilman Leo King, were recalled in a March 31 election. A third councilman, Robert McNeill, died in December.

I work in construction trucking, and for the last 20 years, I have been building Moorpark, its houses, schools, roads and restaurants. I realize trucks are a nuisance, but Highway 118 is a state highway, and without it, truckers face 11 miles of grade up and down the 101 Freeway. But truckers find themselves harassed in Moorpark when they stop for a quick bite on Los Angeles Avenue. Or, they find the city trying to inspect every truck just so it can write a ticket for the city coffers.

Center Ray Ferraro, who had knee surgery on Dec. 8, did not dress for the Kings' 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night, but he says that he is close to returning to the lineup and could play during the team's upcoming five-game road swing. "I'm ready to play, but [Coach] Larry [Robinson] wants me to get a couple of practices in," said Ferraro, who has played in only nine games this season because of injuries. "I would guess either in Dallas or in Phoenix."

I read the story about the activists in Simi Valley who are opposing the McDonald's and the truckers who want to eat there (Aug. 21). This is nothing more than a few morons who need to get a life. Truckers are people too. I have been a dump trucker in Simi for 20 years. We built all those houses and roads off Yosemite and McDonald's and most of this valley. And now a few idiots have nothing better to do than play newspeople. They say they don't have a vendetta against McDonald's, so it must be against truckers.

It began just after he came back from playing for Canada in the 1984 Winter Olympics at Sarajevo. He was 18 and Toronto called him up from Victoria to play his first NHL game. "I was sooooooo young," Russ Courtnall, now 33, said. When the puck dropped Wednesday night at Phoenix, Courtnall had played in game No. 1,000, the third King to do so this season--the others were Doug Bodger and Garry Galley--and, perhaps, the one most concerned about it.
