The Antelope Valley Hospital District board of directors will hold a special meeting Monday to accept the resignation of its chairman, Dr. Harvey Birsner, an 11-year director who resigned after two board allies were recalled in last month's election. Birsner's term would have expired in November. In a five-page letter to the board dated Monday, the neurosurgeon said he had learned that "politics is a dirty business" from the recall campaign against Anne Brouillette and Steve Fox.

When he turned 65 two years ago, Samuel Downing received a $3-million retirement payment from a public hospital district in Salinas, Calif., where he serves as president and chief executive. But Downing continued working at his $668,000-a-year job for another two years, and after he retires this week, he will receive another payment of nearly $900,000. That comes on top of his regular pension of $150,000 a year. The payments amount to one of the more generous pension packages granted to a public official in California and come amid growing debate about "supplemental" pensions that some officials receive on top of their basic retirement benefits.

Three months after he was recalled from the Antelope Valley Hospital District board, Steve Fox declared this week that he will try to regain a seat on the board. Fox, a San Fernando Valley junior high school teacher who lives in Palmdale, filed nomination papers to run for one of three seats on the board in Lancaster's municipal election in November. Fox and Anne Brouillette were removed from the board in a recall election last April. One month later, Dr.

In one of the most obscure races on Tuesday's voluminous ballot, registered nurse Anne Brouillette has raised more than $8,000 in an attempt to win a seat on the board that oversees the Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster. The amount is far more than the total of the other three candidates for the Antelope Valley Hospital District board of directors and more than some candidates for legislative office.

Although a slow-growth initiative was defeated in Santa Clarita in Tuesday's election, voters brought a theme of managed growth to the polls in other northern Los Angeles County communities. Palmdale, one of the nation's fastest-growing cities in the 1980s, will focus more on promoting a quality community rather than rushing to increase its size in coming years, the leader of the city's newly elected council majority predicted Wednesday.

Climaxing a costly campaign and a year of turmoil, Antelope Valley voters will decide Tuesday whether to recall two publicly elected members of the board that governs Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster, the largest hospital in the region. Incumbents Steve Fox and Anne Brouillette, elected to four-year terms in November, 1990, maintain that they have fought wasteful practices, such as $5,000 spent on a goodby party for two departing hospital board members.

A group of employees at Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster have launched a campaign to recall the two newest members of its governing board in an election that could cost the public hospital about $240,000. The employees group has published a formal list of complaints against Steve Fox and Anne Brouillette, who were elected in November to the board of the Antelope Valley Hospital District. The public district runs the 301-bed medical center, the largest in the area.

Executives of the Antelope Valley's largest hospital have accepted legal advice that it was a violation of state law to give two board members $4,000 in retirement gifts and promised not to do it again, but they will not ask for the gifts back. An attorney for the Assn. of California Hospital Districts advised executives of Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster that the gifts were an illegal use of funds for a publicly run hospital under state law.

Voters in rural Acton and Agua Dulce overwhelmingly approved plans to open a local high school, while an Antelope Valley hospital board member who was recalled only last April won back his seat, finishing as the top vote-getter. Those were the highlights from Tuesday's general election for local contests held in northern Los Angeles County communities, according to semi-official election results released Wednesday by the county registrar-recorder's office.

A hotly debated Santa Clarita slow-growth initiative appeared headed for defeat with most of the votes counted in Tuesday's elections as voters in a number of communities in northern Los Angeles County decided several local ballot questions. Measure A, which would allow the city of Santa Clarita to approve only 475 new housing units annually through 2002, was winning only 42% of the vote. The measure was proposed by Citizens for a Responsible Residential Initiative on Growth, or CARRING.
