Michael Parrish's story on Trinidad ("New England West," Jan. 14) took me back to 1950 when, as a graduate student, I supplemented my G.I. Bill by employment with the Census Bureau. While nothing stands still, it seems sad that this quaint village is not a community anymore, but a tourist mecca. What ever happened to the independent men, women and children who migrated there from Nova Scotia to establish a fishing village in this "seaside hamlet"? As I counted noses, I was privileged to listen to ship-to-shore radios in these homes, often the only conversation husbands and wives had with each other for days at a time.

TRINIDAD, Cuba - The taxi from Cienfuegos to Trinidad takes a little more than an hour. It's a breakneck ride on a beautiful road, with densely forested hills rising above cultivated fields. Ambling horse carts veer to the side of the nearly empty highway; we pass them as if they're standing still. "This isn't a taxi," I mutter to my driver, flinching. "It's a private jet. " Trinidad, near Cuba's south-central shore, is one of the country's most beloved destinations: a beautifully preserved Spanish colonial town founded in 1514.

Oliver Camps, manager of the national soccer team of Trinidad and Tobago, is confident that his club will beat the United States in a World Cup qualifying match today at El Camino College. "Officially, I can guarantee that the Trinidad team is going to win," Camps said. "I can guarantee that." Has Camps been studying the motivational technique of Laker Coach Pat Riley? "We are confident because we know exactly what level we have reached," Camps said. "I would be failing in my duty as a manager if I did not feel confident that we could win."

The Felix Trinidad-Bernard Hopkins fight for the undisputed middleweight championship has been rescheduled for Sept. 29 and will remain at New York's Madison Square Garden. The date became available when the World Championships of Wrestling--an amateur event featuring almost 700 athletes from 82 nations--were postponed, partly because of security concerns for international athletes, among them natives of Middle Eastern countries and ethnic Muslims.

So, is the U.S. in soccer's World Cup next year in South Africa? Is it all over but the shouting? "No, I don't think we're in yet," U.S. midfielder Benny Feilhaber said Saturday night, after playing a pivotal role in helping the U.S. defeat El Salvador, 2-1, in Sandy, Utah. "Obviously, it's a huge three points for us. I think we needed to get this win, and we did. Trinidad is the next game, and if we can get three points there we'll be a little bit closer." The U.S.-Trinidad and Tobago game is today (3:30 p.m., ESPN Classic)

The family of an Inglewood man gunned down by L.A. County sheriff's deputies this month is requesting an FBI probe of the shooting and subsequent investigation by the Sheriff's Department. Jose de la Trinidad, 36, was shot and killed by deputies Nov. 10, just minutes after leaving his niece's quinceanera with his older brother. After police attempted to pull the older brother over for speeding, he sped off. After pleading with his brother to stop, Jose de la Trinidad was let out of the car in the 1900 block of East 122nd Street in Willowbrook, family members said.
