For hundreds of poor people in the eastern San Fernando Valley, Santa Claus arrived in a police car instead of a flying sleigh. A Simi Valley businessman spent Christmas Eve handing out thousands of dollars in $10 bills to hundreds of recipients in housing projects, at church services and in hospital emergency rooms. "I like giving money away," said Bill Baer, grinning broadly as he held up the last envelope of cash. "It's almost like an addiction; it feels so good, I just want to do it more."

Clashing yet again with Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard Parks over the use of community liaison officers for patrol duties, a City Council panel asked Monday for a legal opinion on whether the chief may be ordered to reassign them. In a three-hour session marked by sharp exchanges, the council's Public Safety Committee also asked for a report on what other cities are doing and any changes that might improve police-community ties.

The trial of a white police officer whose shooting of an unarmed black man in Cincinnati set off three nights of rioting in April is again focusing the city's attention on often-strained community-police relations. Officer Stephen Roach, 27, was indicted in May on misdemeanor charges of negligent homicide and obstruction of official business in the shooting death of Timothy Thomas, 19. His trial is scheduled to begin today.

San Fernando Valley clergy met with top brass from the Los Angeles Police Department on Monday to discuss issues of race and community-police relations.

Re "DARE Effort Competing With Other Priorities," Oct. 17. The column heading would better read "DARE Effort Competing with Political Posturing." It is absolute nonsense to suggest that it is better to staff a school resource officer at a high school than to staff a DARE [Drug Abuse Resistance Education] officer at the elementary level. The former is reactive to the nth political degree, and the latter is pro-activity at its best. The DARE program is easily the most effective law enforcement / community program effort ever conceived.

Most people predicted that Tuesday's runoff election to replace termed-out City Councilman Nate Holden in Los Angeles' Mid-City 10th District would be close. It wasn't. Voters chose newcomer Martin Ludlow over Holden's longtime aide and designated heir, Deron Williams, by a comfortable margin, 56% to 44%.

Sitting quietly in his cell in the South Gate Jail, Councilman Jerry Garcia contemplated his predicament. "Hearing the door slam from the outside is totally different from hearing it on the inside," he said from his bunk, trying not to breathe the rancid air of his cell. "This is a good tool. I think I can understand what it's like to be in jail."

A newly strengthened clergy misconduct review board vowed Thursday to rid the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles of any priest who sexually preys on children. Board members, some of whom were formally introduced Thursday by Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, include a sexual-abuse survivor, parents of young children, mental-health professionals, attorneys, a priest and a nun. The new board, which will address only sexual misconduct, replaces a more informal advisory group whose names were kept secret.
