LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W hat does talent have to do with "Baywatch"? Well, there's at least an audition of sorts during a search contest for additions to the internationally-popular sun, surf and sand syndicated show. If you can make the first cut.

Argentinean estancias used to make lots of money, feeding the world beef and dressing it in wool. Now the estancias largely serve a new purpose: taking tourists back to the elegant ways of yesteryear.

Virginia Wood comes up with a plan for luring some of the great bread bakers from the east to her home town of Austin.

Plus, the future of baseball, onstage nudity in Austin, and more.
