Re: "School Paper Issues Canceled Amid Feud," Dec. 5. I am a staff member of the recently shut-down student newspaper at Los Angeles Valley College. The canceling of the last two issues of the paper outraged me. Some might take the unprecedented incident lightly. I do not. The advisor to the publication unilaterally decided to suspend the last two issues over a minor schedule problem with the editor-in-chief. The conflict of personalities here overshadowed the journalistic principle of responsibility.

M. Stephen Sheldon's letter ("The Place for Ideas," Times Valley Edition, April 19) dealt with a controversy that arose when Los Angeles Valley Star Editor in Chief Chris Mayda published an opinion piece, "Do Literacy and Babies Mix?" Sheldon asks: "Shouldn't the faculty of a department of journalism be teaching its students that a newspaper has both the right and the obligation to publish all reasonable facts and ideas?" My response is a resounding "Yes!" As was pointed out in the original article ("Valley College News Column Ignites Protests and Threats," Valley Edition, April 11)

Music was always an enjoyable if somewhat trifling diversion for Harvey Mason Jr. Basketball was his life. Son of a noted jazz drummer, Mason penned a tune that was recorded and released by saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. when the precocious songwriter was only 8 years old. Mason says he bought a model airplane with his first royalty check. But it was basketball's pulsating rhythms that really moved him. "It's the old story," Mason says. "I worked every day — Christmas Eve, birthdays — trying to become a great basketball player.

This big pig didn't go to market, after all. Grunt, the 800-plus-pound porker who was abandoned on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, apparently isn't going to end up on the breakfast tables of America. After newspaper and television reports that Grunt might have to be put to death by authorities because no one would adopt him, more than 40 people from across the nation phoned the County Animal Control Shelter in Carson Monday. "It has just been crazy here, just crazy," said Lt. George Warfield, a shelter spokesman.

We were waiting for the previews when the trivia question appeared on the screen. It said something like: What valley is featured in the upcoming film "2 Days in the Valley"? It so happened that this particular multiplex was deep in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, but this wasn't a trick question. Only a rube would have thought the answer was San Gabriel. Or Pomona. Or Santa Clarita. Or Conejo. Or Antelope. Or San Joaquin. Or Silicon.

Whatever happens in the final round of the Valley of the Stars Championship today, it will be hard to beat the drama at the 18th hole Saturday. As Stephanie Lowe, Catrin Nilsmark and Annika Sorenstam walked up the fairway to hit their third shots on the 440-yard, par-five hole at Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, Lowe and Nilsmark were tied for the lead at nine under par and Sorenstam, the first-round leader, was three shots behind. Lowe hit first, and her wedge shot rolled to within six feet.
