I read with considerable interest your article on the two lobbyists Carmen Morinello and Frank Elfend (Dec. 22).

VTN Corp., an Irvine engineering and land-planning firm, vowed Monday to appeal a $3.5-million negligence verdict handed down late last week by a San Diego Superior Court jury. Jurors in the complex case held the company's land-planning subsidiary responsible for an investment group's losses after a newly incorporated city cut back the number of units that could be built on a property engineered by VTN.

The five city councilmen raised more than $190,000 last year in campaign contributions, with most of the money going to pay off debts accumulated in previous campaigns, statements filed recently with the city clerk show. Mayor Tom Daly raised the most last year--$88,151, records show. But most of that went to pay off loans and bills he had left over from his 1992 campaigns for mayor and the council.

In this city, where politicians say it takes $100,000 just to be a contender for municipal office, the cost of winning and maintaining council seats is starting to take its toll.

If there were ever any doubts about who has held sway over the city's trash industry, they were buried along with Cosmo (Dick) Taormina. On that spring day in 1984, top city officials crowded Anaheim's First Christian Church to pay their respects to the gregarious man some called the "garbologist." After the church service, a convoy of polished trash trucks--some from competing firms--met the long, slow funeral procession at the cemetery gates.
