Are we stuck with Stu Nahan for good on Channel 5? Hey, Stu, loosen up, will you, guy? We've got Poland, South Africa, homelessness and deficits to depress us. It's OK for sports to sometimes serve as a distraction to all of this. TIM BARTELL Los Angeles

Baseball agent Scott Boras, among the speakers at a memorial service last week for Stu Nahan, told an amazing story about how he first met Nahan, who died Dec. 26 at age 81. Boras grew up on an 800-acre dairy and row-crop farm near Elk Grove, Calif., and as a youngster often watched Nahan, who was "Skipper Stu," on a children's show on a Sacramento television station. Nahan was also a sports anchor at the same station.

Radio station KABC and Bud Furillo, longtime "Sportstalk" host, parted company Wednesday. Stu Nahan, who has been a part of KABC's morning "Ken and Bob Company" show since last October, will take over Furillo's spot Monday. Eric Tracy will fill in until then. Furillo resigned after being told that Nahan was being promoted to host of "Sportstalk." "There are no hard feelings whatsoever," Furillo said. "I'm happy. They made me a very generous offer to stay at the station.

For six years, I was an usher on the Dodger Stadium Club Level. During that time I had the distinct pleasure to meet and chat with Stu Nahan nearly every game day as he would arrive or depart the stadium for his Dodgers pregame show activities. Stu always had a story, a quip, or a trivia question for me along with a laugh. . . . On occasion, his wife, Sandy, would sit on the Club Level where Stu would join her.

Ed Goren, your response to Stu Nahan's letter is as weak as Tim McCarver's so-called announcing. We understand the game of baseball and don't need his constant barrage of already-known facts. Let Joe Buck do his more-than-capable job, and stick a sock in it. JOE POPROCK Newbury Park

"Silver-Tipped" Stu Nahan [Viewpoint, Feb. 2] believes that hockey is not regarded as a major league sport because the NHL uses minor league referees. Wrong! Hockey and soccer as well are minor league sports because they still use 19th-century rules in the 21st century, specifically, the antiquated offside rule whereby a player cannot go downfield ahead of the puck/ball. If the offside rule was eliminated, there would be high-scoring, fast-paced games. Isn't it about time Larry Stewart wrote another column pumping up Stu Nahan for a job?

Stu Nahan for Bud Furillo on "Sportstalk"? At first I was perplexed as to the reason why such a ridiculous change would even be considered. But, it soon dawned on me that what we have here is a very sound business decision. Soon, I would expect Stu to also replace Jackie Olden on her cooking show. Then, "Sportstalk" and the food show could consolidated into one six-hour show. After all, who could possibly know more about sports and food than Stu Nahan? C'mon you pinheads at KABC!

His final appearance on the air was Thursday night, even though his contract doesn't expire until August, she said. The station said it was making its decision not to renew Nahan's contract now "to give Nahan a chance to explore other opportunities."

Stu Nahan, a onetime minor-league hockey goalie who delivered sports reports on Los Angeles television and radio for decades, has died. He was 81. Nahan died Wednesday at his Studio City home, after battling lymphoma, a form of cancer, since January, his family said. In 1968, Nahan began doing nightly sports reports on KABC-TV Channel 7. He moved to KNBC-TV Channel 4 in 1977 and to KTLA-TV Channel 5 in 1988, retiring from television in 1999.

Stu Nahan is 80 and says he feels like 50. OK, maybe 60. Some people get their energy from pasta. These days, Nahan gets his from life, from sunshine and trees, from people around him. All the people. Nahan hasn't been gone long from the public eye. His most recent job in local sports broadcasting was on the Dodgers' pregame show. He retired from that after the last game in 2004.

I just survived one of the most harrowing experiences of my life, driving a car on the freeway while listening to a Kevin Malone interview on the radio. Malone told Stu Nahan on KXTA (1150) Saturday, "My new nickname, I want you to know, is Dodger Boy." I'd like to apologize at this time to the woman in the green Ford Escort that I nearly sideswiped. You laugh that hard, you cry and you can't see. To say Dodger Boy cracks me up--is not far from the I-5 truth.

According to Larry Stewart, KNBC has victimized Stu Nahan and rendered themselves the ogres. How sad that Mr. Nahan has been notified just before his 60th birthday, just before his wedding (possibly in Italy), just before his European jog, all on $300,000 a year. How sad. But I don't think Mr. Nahan's plans will be radically altered, just like mine they will go on. I'm looking forward to spending summer afternoons on the public tennis courts of Pasadena as I draw my last teacher paycheck through the summer.
