With Ruth Seymour's firing of Sandra Tsing Loh at KCRW-FM and now Bob Edwards' demotion at NPR's "Morning Edition" ("Stormy Days for NPR," by Allan M. Jalon and Steve Carney, March 29), it appears that public radio is running out of feet to shoot. Lon M. Burns Manhattan Beach

THE article "The Enduring Appeal of Frank Sinatra" (by Steve Carney, June 20) echoes just why this supreme master of his craft is indeed timeless. His appeal transcends generations and, through the largess of radio stations KLAC-AM and KSUR-AM, palpably reinforces to youth of today how the "sounds of Sinatra" are ever "now." Frank R.

BILL Handel on KFI is one of the great success stories in radio ("Humor, Issues and a Cause," by Steve Carney, Aug. 15). Here's to another 10 years of funny and insightful morning programming!

If you care about your privacy or your pocketbook, ask whether your rental car has electronic tracking equipment and what it's used for. The answers may surprise you -- if you can get them. Since I last wrote about this issue in 2002, more rental cars have been fitted with such systems, which can instantly relay information on your car's speed, route and position to the rental company. This is done by wireless devices and Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers that pinpoint location.

Ihad to laugh when I read how KRTH "decided it can't afford to be so rigid" ["KRTH Puts a New Spin on Oldies," by Steve Carney, Sept. 14]. KRTH has one of the most rigid playlists. Considering the enormous amount of great oldies that they could draw from, it's a shame that KRTH insists on playing the same songs ad nauseum. Jerry Kazdoy Santa Clarita

Under the agreement, Brea will provide employee education for Yorba Linda city staff members and emergency preparedness education for the public, and will update Yorba Linda's emergency response plan.
