Craig Calfee was a sculptor and a performance artist before he knew anything about building bicycles. He worked as a crewman on sailboats in the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean, and once hitch-hiked across Africa, stowed away on a freighter and landed in South America. Then he came home to Boston and worked as a boat builder, making Olympic racing shells and kayaks with carbon fiber material.

Mike Downey's article on the Detroit Pistons' Rick Mahorn was so brutally vicious that I will certainly remember it for a long time. Downey engaged in merciless butchery of the "Bad Boy," outright destruction of Mahorn's dignity. There is only one thing that I can say to Downey after he so utterly attacked Mahorn, the Charles Manson of the basketball court . . . Thank you. STEVE LEVIN West Los Angeles

Re "A new direction for West Hollywood," March 21 Although I appreciate The Times' coverage of West Hollywood, this story failed to include Eastside residents who are enthusiastic about these changes. Many of us have long sought economic development on this side of town. I wish your story had depicted Casden Properties' plans for the Movietown shopping center more thoroughly. Yes, it includes 294 condominiums, but the plans also call for new retail space and affordable housing. Casden has diligently listened to what we in the community have had to say about its project and conscientiously revised its plans to reflect our concerns.

The latest in a series of demonstrations against the Spanish-language television station KVEA (Channel 52) turned into a shoving match last week when about 30 Latino picketers forced their way into the station's Glendale headquarters demanding to talk to the general manager. The demonstrators left the building when employees from the television station called Glendale police. No arrests were made, but the protesters were warned by police to stay outside the building or face arrest.

Powerful radiotelescopes in the Mojave Desert and Puerto Rico turned their antennas on Monday to the largest-ever systematic search of the sky for signals from intelligent civilizations on other planets. If we listen, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration believes, they might call. At noon, on a date picked to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the New World, the two-pronged effort began.

A personnel shake-up last week at KVEA-TV Channel 52 in Los Angeles brought out about 30 angry protesters on Monday. They accused station management of insensitivity to the area's Mexican and Mexican-American communities. Chief among the demands made by two Mexican political and labor organizations was a reinstatement of Bob Navarro, former Mexican-American news director of Los Angeles' No. 2 Spanish-language station. Navarro was among three news staffers who left their jobs last week.

California's political watchdog agency has closed 225 cases since May without finishing the investigations, a victim of a nagging backlog and budget crunch that led the agency's chairwoman last week to cry uncle. "We can't handle our caseload," Liane Randolph, chairwoman of the Fair Political Practices Commission, told the panel at its monthly meeting in Sacramento.

In the 1950s, Los Angeles County's raging growth and increasing national importance made it an essential local news beat. The Hall of Administration's news corps included dozens of broadcast, print and wire reporters from as far away as Long Beach, the Antelope Valley and San Diego. Today, because of cuts in newsroom budgets and staffs, only two wire services and two newspapers, including The Times, regularly cover a county government whose constituency totals 10.

Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona has been paid as much as $110,000 by his election committee for meals, travel and other unidentified expenses that his campaign disclosure statements do not itemize, The Times has found. The statements describe the expenses vaguely as "loans" and repayments rather than listing them as actual expenses.
