MARATHON: It was a normal Sunday week, bright and beautiful, an "only in a day. I had just stewed out of a bubble balh when a friend called to remind me that this was the last day anyone could visit Skaggs Springs at t he dam site because it would be closed off for construction on Monday. A group was going oul lo see the springs for the lasl lime and invited me Io go along. "There is just one Ihing," cant inued the voice. "the I rip will require a lillle walking." As things turned oul, lhis was the underslalemem of the century! An hour laler, about 12 of us loaded into two motor homes and embarked on an advent ure I hat may not be forgot len for a long, long ime. Our "'trail boss" was a nice upstanding member of the community whom I have never known to lie. However, she seemed Io only know four words: "It's not much further." And we didn't lake Ihe trail which was marked--our scoul knew a belier way. As we hiked, fell and slid down the canyon for a little over a mile, it occurred to me Jhal the last occupanl of said trail must have been a moumain goal. Through some miracle, these 12 middle-aged mountain people made it to Ihe springs...lwo or three at a time, of course, but finally everyone was accounted for along with one l wisted knee,  wo blisl ers and my own broken fingernail. I had brought along my gold pan, so while we chatted aboul our feat and panned for gold, each of us was harboring the slrong suspicion lhal at leasi half the group would not be able to get back up the trail. "II's easier going up than down" fibbed 1he trail boss ..while I casually reminded my friends that the Sonoma County Sheriff's helicopter was broken. Suddenly, silence fell Over the little group as a mirage appeared out of nowhere. Since most of the group had at- lended a big Halloween party Ihe night before, no one truly Jrusled Ihe old eye-sighl. We blinked, but sure enough, lhe vision thai appeared was in the form of a great white pickup Iruck with a large jug of ice cold waler in the back. So there WAS a road! Santa could not have been bet ter received. The kindly official took us back Io the top of Ihe canyon. Oh, not all of us...four brave souls chose to hike out (show-offs) and lhose molar homes looked mighly good to all. Nol only hal, but this prospector found a little color in the creek! It had been a great day and after some eats and refresh- menls, I suggested thai we go to he Geysers nexl week. A chorus of response said. "Blow il oul your ear, Vivian."

Unfortunately, i neither candidate addressed this issue intelligently. They -- also forgol Ihal California doesn't use coal. I wish John An- derson had been allowed to participate because Ihese two ex- governors have never worked in the Congress. CHRISTINE WIRTZ, co-owner of Cloverdale Bakery: I lboughl Mr. Reagan came out ahead in the debate. He set my mind al ease on several issues, such as Salt II, social security and war mongering. Both men came across as politicians. I had hoped for more honesty and "telling it like it is." !w & George Silva SliURL ilATI.EY, general wine manager of Trombetta Dislribu*ors: I didn'* consider it a debate.

Bul lhen, who's perfect? No one man can or will ever be able to satisfy Ihe American public en- lirely, especially with Ioday's cynical, critical attitude.
