Firing the first salvo in the runoff campaign, 5th District City Council candidate Mike Feuer accused Barbara Yaroslavsky on Tuesday of trying to limit the number of debates the two will attend prior to the June 6 runoff--a charge that Yaroslavsky's camp calls ludicrous. Feuer, former director of a legal services clinic, based his charges on a letter that Yaroslavsky sent Monday requesting a meeting with Feuer's representatives to discuss the upcoming debate schedule.

Barbara Yaroslavsky, a top candidate for the 5th District City Council seat, has missed 10 scheduled candidates' forums in the last month, prompting accusations from her challengers Wednesday that she is trying to win the election on her money and name recognition alone. "I think she is showing total disdain for the public," said candidate and former school board member Roberta Weintraub, who says she has attended all the events.

This is about the time of year when Linda Countryman volunteers to teach her favorite subject: sex. Countryman explains the birds and the bees--and the monkeys, giraffes and snakes--as a volunteer docent at the Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park. "In the spring, we do give some X-rated tours," says the 65-year-old Hollywood resident. "It's unavoidable." Countryman, a former motion-picture production secretary and game-show talent booker, has been helping at the zoo since 1969.

Shame on you for your biased coverage of the Yaroslavsky/Feuer 5th District City Council seat race. It is no secret that The Times has endorsed Feuer. However, you are still this city's only major metropolitan newspaper. It is therefore incumbent upon you to report the news--not distort the angle of it to your liking. Barbara Yaroslavsky has been my friend for better than 17 years. She is the most honest, sincere, dedicated, capable, knowledgeable, hard-working person I know. She is also not a lawyer--which by default, makes her the best person for the job. That's my opinion and you're entitled to yours--on the editorial page, not on the front page.
