In the first major boxing upset of the U.S. Olympic Festival, Pomona's Shane Mosley lost not only a light-welterweight decision to Steve Johnston of Colorado Springs Sunday but also a trip to the World Championships in November in Australia. Johnston, who lost a 5-0 decision to Mosley at the 1989 U.S. championships at Colorado Springs, Colo., won a decision over Mosley in an electronically scored 21-17 bout before about 600 spectators at Loyola Marymount's Gersten Pavilion.

Said Jack Mosley, whose son, Shane, was defeated by Steve Johnston of Colorado Springs, Colo., Sunday in a light-welterweight boxing match: "It's too bad Shane finally gets written about because he lost. If Shane never does anything else beyond this point, I'd still be very proud of my son. "He's never had any trouble with gangs or the police, he plays the saxophone, he was a high school honor student (at Pomona High) and he's active in Pomona voter registration drives.

I would like to express my appreciation for the public service The Times provides in the Letters column. This forum provides an opportunity for healthy debate. Through debate in The Times and in personal meetings, Santiago Ranch management has developed a new balanced plan that has gained local support. Development objectives will be balanced with environmental concerns of the community. Density increases will not be sought to reduce mass grading. Grading will provide topographical variation to achieve a "natural" look.

Steve Johnston's letter (July 12) defended the Orange County Planning Commission's approval of the Santiago Ranch development. Like the reader Johnston attacks, I also attended the Planning Commission's public hearing and concluded that there wasn't much planning going on there. In fact, I wondered if I hadn't mistakenly wandered into a taping of "Let's Make a Deal," with panelists Leavenworth, Osborne and Wooden trying to guess how many more residential units over the county staff's recommendation the developer would be allowed.

Joel Casamayor of Cuba scored a technical knockout over Radford Beasley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to remain undefeated and keep his World Boxing Assn. super featherweight title. Casamayor, a 1992 Olympic champion for the Cuban national team, started a barrage of punches with a quick right jab and a left to the head early in the fifth round. Beasley, of St. Louis, fought back but had cuts over both eyes and was bleeding from his mouth when the fight was stopped.

A recent reader's letter (July 5) cited approval of an interim sand and gravel use on Santiago Ranch as "an example of mindless overdevelopment . . . that has ruined Orange County life style." This was allegedly another example of money speaking. The reader's letter insinuated that county planning commissioners are witless nits conspiring with greedy developers. The truth is Santiago Ranch is owned by a widow who was orphaned in America by her refugee parents. With honor, this fine lady served as a wife, mother and businesswoman.

Ray Chandos' letter (July 19) missed the point. No one suggests Santiago Ranch was approved because the owner was an "orphan." My letter (July 12) only states that the owner, despite humble origin, saved and worked hard for the right to own the ranch. Some buyers in new housing tracts protest growth before the concrete is dry in their drive. Cabin lot owners in Trabuco protesting small lots is analogous to chain smokers crusading for pure air. It doesn't take a soothsayer to see growth has come to South Orange County.

Scott Schulte's ninth U.S. Olympic Festival ended just like the other eight--without a gold medal. Schulte, a water polo player from Mahwah, N.J., came away with a silver medal Wednesday when the West beat the East, 6-5. He has now attended nine festivals without winning it all. "Probably now I'm coming back," said Schulte, an investment broker who has five silver medals and four bronze medals. "Right now I'd say yes. If you ask me in three months, the answer might be different." In boxing, U.S.

Diego Corrales still has a bitter taste in his mouth from the last time he stood in the ring at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. On that night 19 months ago, his throat filled with blood from two ugly cuts in his lip, his jaw badly bruised, more blood trickling from a cut above his left eye, Corrales saw his career possibly slipping away through a bloody haze.
