I check on the progress of the huge underground water tank they're building and wonder if the adjacent hills will ever look natural again. Then I choose a trail. The view of the Valley at the end of Wonder View Drive is among the best, especially after a rain. I also love to head to the farmers market in Studio City.

The setting was a 1940s-style Hollywood supper club. Couples in tuxes and glittery ball gowns sat at linen-covered tables adorned with teeny lamps. Palm tree shadows danced on the walls. And up on the stage--romantically lighted in hues of lavender, blue and violet--stood the singing seductress, a little lady with a big name: Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona. But to us, she's simply Vikki Carr. And this place on this night is not really the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton.

Re "Ballot Issues? Local TV Can't Find the Time," editorial, Oct. 8: Personally, I am much more interested in learning more about local, state and national political issues than I am about criminal activity, celebrity personalities and their latest gossip. We live in the most information-rich society but are the least informed on issues that truly matter, primarily because the television and journalism communities do not in general make an effort to educate people on a regular basis on the issues that have the potential to affect our collective lives.

Joseph Benti has never shied away from controversy. He certainly hasn't mellowed over the years. "I lost my interest and love for TV news in 1979 when I quit Channel 2," Benti says. "Look at the their (local news) sweep series, it's all jockstraps and G-strings. That's what it has become."
