Another Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department narcotics officer was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday on charges of stealing more than $1.5 million in cash seized from drug traffickers. Stephen Nichols, 40, of La Habra Heights was one of eight suspended deputies who escaped implication two years ago when nine other members of elite sheriff's drug enforcement teams were indicted as the result of an FBI sting operation.

"Days of Our Lives" most distinguishable character, Steven "Patch" Johnson, will get an operation and lose his trademark eye-patch on the June 20 episode of the NBC daytime soap. He also abandons his streetwise character, going undercover as a Fed to infiltrate a crooked church that's intent on snuffing his childhood buddy. Not only does actor Stephen Nichols rid himself of the patch that has set him apart from other soap actors for four years, he cuts and lightens his golden locks.

"Funny energy," "smooth stuff," "quintessence" and "inconstant constant" are all terms that cosmologists use to describe the 65%-70% of the universe that is "something else," according to "Missing Pieces of the Cosmic Puzzle" (June 15). It seems these same scientists cannot account for 99% of the matter in the universe nor 70% of its energy. Maybe the answer is not missing at all. They simply refuse to see it. Though the energy books do not balance, the universe behaves as if it does.

A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty Monday to federal theft and money-laundering charges, admitting that he helped steal about $800,000 during a 1988 drug raid. Stephen Nichols, 41, of La Habra Heights also pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to violating the civil rights of a drug trafficker caught in the drug raid when he lied to a judge about the circumstances of the case.

I have been taping "All My Children" and "General Hospital" for 20 years. "General Hospital" just got deleted from my VCR ("Daytime Stars on Soapbox for Gore-Lieberman Ticket," by Dana Calvo, Oct. 14). Isn't it strange that people representing a party who accuse "those rich Republicans" of not caring for the "working people," and who earn upward of $5,000 per soap episode, don't even bother to tip the valets? To Tony Geary, regarding legislating morality, which party seems to think the answer to every problem is passing a new law?

A mistrial was declared Monday in the federal court trial of a former Los Angeles County sheriff's sergeant accused of using stolen drug money to help build his San Dimas home. Jurors in the trial of Thomas Gordon said they were hopelessly deadlocked after nearly two weeks of deliberations. U.S. District Judge William J. Rea declared the mistrial in the latest case stemming from a corruption probe known as Operation Big Spender.

A light play isn't necessarily an insubstantial play. "60 Minutes From L.A." at the Gene Dynarski Theatre manages some meaningful confrontations in which four women who came to flower in the '70s discover their smothered identities at a high school reunion party in Lancaster. It's not surprising that Lancaster is where first-time playwright Lisa Nichols (also featured in the production) grew up.

"Days of Our Lives" took a big gamble in 1988. In an effort to boost the show's mediocre ratings, the powers-that-be came up with a plan to incorporate action/adventure into the show's usual romantic story lines. "We were trying to do a better show," says Al Rabin, who recently returned to the helm as the supervising executive producer. "We tried to keep the romantic aspects of the show and add an element of adventure. But the reality is you can only do so much." Apparently so.
