Nestled in the hills of the Santa Clarita Valley, the serenity of The Master's College contrasts starkly with the hustle and bustle of life in the NBA. However, it is here that Rod Foster feels he belongs. Foster was nicknamed "Rocket" at UCLA where, as a freshman in 1980, he played guard for the Bruins' last Final Four team.

On the map, the road to Castle Hot Springs is little more than an L-shaped gray line tying Lake Pleasant to Morristown, 37 miles distant. It is unpaved, uninteresting and, suddenly, under scrutiny. For it was on that road at dusk on a warm Arizona spring evening that Rod Foster met the future.

It is two years to the day since basketball player Rod Foster stuck his left leg out of his Jeep as it flipped out of control on a deserted dirt road in the Arizona desert. Foster's leg broke in two places above the ankle. After performing the first of three operations, doctors for the Phoenix Suns described the injury as possibly career ending. For two years, Foster has been believing the possibly, and not letting his career end.

Regarding "KPCC Change Leaves an On-Air Vacuum," (Aug. 11): KPCC's switch from music to talk has, indeed, deprived Southern California listeners of many delightful jazz programs. "Classic American Music," in particular, featured wonderful music, well-presented, artfully crafted and joyfully performed. It was simply great radio and a pleasure I miss every morning. However, I am not surprised that general manager Rod Foster received fewer complaint calls regarding the loss of musical fare than anticipated.

Loyola Marymount, despite 57 points by Bo Kimble, lost a basketball exhibition to Athletes in Action, 129-120, Saturday at Gersten Pavilion. It was the second consecutive game in which Kimble has scored more than 50 points. But the Lions missed the inside scoring of Hank Gathers, who remained out of the lineup pending further medical tests to determine why he blacked out in a game Dec. 9. Kimble scored 41 points after halftime. AIA, which completed its season 9-21, led most of the game.
