Before he made it, the great radical filmmaker Robert Kramer described "Milestones," the 1975 epic of post-counterculture America that he co-directed with John Douglas, as "the last film. " "Everything has to be in it," Kramer said. "All the play of the heart. All the fullness of feeling. " True to his promise, "Milestones," newly available on DVD through Icarus Films, contains multitudes. In a film that stretches and sprawls and often seems to overflow its bounds, dozens of characters around the country — on communes, in cities, on the road, starting families, finding work, reintegrating into society after time in prison — wrestle with what it means to live in the hangover of their dashed utopian aspirations.

So Robert Kramer says of his proposal for Santa Monica's tallest, most massive automobile dealership ever to abut a residential neighborhood, "There isn't any controversy that I know of" (Times, April 25). In all my time working with Santa Monica Mid-City Neighbors to organize community involvement in land-use planning decisions affecting our primarily residential neighborhood, I have never before encountered a proposed project that has met with such universal and vehement opposition from its neighbors as has Mr. Kramer's.

A 10-month investigation into allegations of point shaving by North Carolina State basketball players has uncovered little evidence, with two key sources softening earlier incriminating statements, attorneys say. The North Carolina investigation is largely completed, but it won't officially be closed until a similar inquiry in New Jersey is over, said Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby Jr.

As calls for Jim Valvano's resignation resonated throughout North Carolina Friday, the embattled North Carolina State basketball coach continued to distance himself from the point-shaving allegations swirling around his program.

A pickup truck tumbled down the side of a 75-foot-high Santa Ana River bluff early Thursday, but its two occupants walked away from the smashed vehicle. Milton Leland Prang, 27, of Norco had been driving west on River Drive near Corona Avenue when his truck drifted onto the dirt shoulder and then tumbled down the bluff to the riverbed, said Deputy Debra Wilson, spokeswoman for the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. "He just wasn't paying very close attention," she said.

I'm not a big fan of Quayle, but I do feel that Conrad's cartoon (Quayle under his desk on the phone saying, "Dad, they're calling up the reserves!" Aug. 23) was repulsive. For many, many years I have read editorial cartoons, liked some, disliked others, but this is the first one that has turned my stomach. ROBERT F. KRAMER Lompoc
