State Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley) heard through the grapevine that she was no longer vice chairwoman of the Senate Budget Committee--and she isn't happy about the lack of respect. Days later, Wright, whose district straddles Ventura and Los Angeles counties, still had not heard it from her own caucus. "If you're going to stab me, stab me in front," said Wright, who is being replaced on the committee by Sen. Jim Brulte (R-Rancho Cucamonga).

Her white hair tied neatly in a bun, 68-year-old grandmother Cathie Wright seems to be an unlikely candidate to impact Cal State Northridge athletics. But Wright, a Republican state senator whose district includes Northridge, became a white knight last summer when she secured $586,000 in public education funds to rescue four men's sports cut by Northridge administrators.

State Sen. Cathie Wright, appearing Monday at the fifth meeting of the Cal State Northridge Task Force on Intercollegiate Athletics, questioned why the CSU/CAL-NOW settlement was passed without the consultation of CSU administrators and students. "I'm very disappointed that the chancellor signed off on this," said Wright (R-Simi Valley). "Two attorneys decided this. The university wasn't consulted, the students weren't consulted and the community wasn't consulted.

State Senator Cathie Wright made her message clear to the Cal State Northridge Task Force on Intercollegiate Athletics at the group's first meeting Monday night. "I will be watching," she said. Sen. Wright (R--Simi Valley) established the task force in August as a stipulation for Northridge getting $586,000 in state funds to restore four men's sports that the school cut in order to meet budget and gender-equity requirements.

In her interview with Cathie Wright about welfare reform, staff writer Nancy Hill-Holtzman asked Sen. Wright about criticism of her opposition to the Republican position on welfare. In her reply Wright stated "I have not received one phone call . . . to chastise me for what I did." I beg to differ with Wright's statement (unless she considers me a nonperson) for I did call Wright's office and later in the day she returned my call. In both my call to her office and in my conversation with Wright, I expressed that I did not approve of her position of paying for nursing home care for legal or illegal immigrants.

State Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), a member of the Legislature's welfare reform committee, stood alone among Republicans in voting for a plan vetoed by the governor. She explains her thinking in an interview with The Times. * Question: Why did you want to be involved in reforming welfare? Answer: It just seemed like an issue I'd like to get my teeth on. . . . We talk about getting people jobs but it's more involved than that. Sometimes you have to do something first.

A Los Angeles judge ruled Tuesday that Cal State Northridge officials cannot use a newly drafted computer policy to prohibit students from using the campus Internet computer server to express political views. CSUN senior Christopher Landers, 32, is suing the university over the October blocking of his Internet site promoting the state Senate campaign of Democrat John Birke, who eventually lost to incumbent Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley).

Cal State Northridge students could soon be faced with a new computer policy--created in the wake of a controversy surrounding a politically themed Internet site. University officials drafted the document in December, primarily to clarify that university computers are to be used for academic purposes and school business only. Next week, Superior Court Judge Diane Wayne is expected to rule on student Christopher Landers' request for a preliminary injunction to suspend the new policy.
