The June 8 article by Elaine Woo and Steven R. Churm on the growing teacher shortage missed the most important reason for the shortage. The most important people in the education of students receive the lowest pay, little prestige and no respect. More than 50% of new teachers quit within five years, and they are in the 25- to 35-year-old age bracket. They become totally discouraged by the way they are treated by administrators who have forgotten or never knew why they are in education.

It was one of Patricia Kastle's last wishes. When she died, she wanted her cremated remains to be sprinkled on the snowy white ski slopes where she spent the happiest moments of her life, her attorney said. But that peaceful, final request, as written in her will, belies the brutal death she met this week, when her former husband shot her in the head at close range before killing himself. What's more, there may be a dispute over the will.

A storm that blew out of Baja California unloaded up to half an inch of rain in some spots in Orange County Wednesday, causing a mud slide that closed much of Ortega Highway, minor street flooding and a rash of freeway fender-benders. The good news is that fair, warm weather with daytime temperatures in the 70s is expected today and throughout the weekend, forecasters say.

The bright strand of green and white helium-filled campaign balloons had already sunk to the floor by the time Democrat Cecil N. Green finally declared his victory in the 33rd Senate District race, concluding a close and bitter battle for the conservative vote. Complaining that his opponent, Republican Donald R. Knabe of Cerritos, had waged the most negative campaign he had ever been involved in, Green claimed his seat at 4:04 a.m.

Forget the white zinfandel, the gray pinstripes and the posh Orange County hotel suites. Election night for state Sen. Cecil N. Green was more like Budweiser in a can, green garb of any sort and the Norwalk Knights of Columbus hall. It was a scene from another time and place, a backslapping, blue-collar Democratic crowd of 200 supporters in love with their folksy candidate. It was too early to tell who would be victorious, but they cheered and clapped regardless.

President and Mrs. Reagan will appear together on television next Sunday with a joint message on drugs. It is not clear what they will say, but a White House announcement that sounded like something out of a World War II savings-bond rally said that they would carry the message "into every home, every school, every college campus, every locker room, every corporate board room, every office, every studio."
