Saying that Long Beach needs to expand its police force by more than the 10 additional officers proposed in next year's budget, Councilman Warren Harwood is advocating the hiring of 45 new officers and the establishment of a police substation on the east side of Long Beach airport. Harwood, who intends to present his proposal at a budget hearing Tuesday, says his plan could be paid for with $3.2 million in new revenue from a variety of city fees, including airport and harbor fees.

A proposal by an Anglo councilman to rename a Long Beach street in memory of the late Cesar Chavez has angered Latino leaders, who have spurned the plan and begun working on one of their own. It is a matter of self-determination and ethnic pride, said Ray Rodriguez, a free-lance writer who is leading the effort to come up with an alternative plan for Long Beach to honor Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers Union.

After a debate in which mock boxing and mock wrestling acts were variously described as harmless entertainment, a sex show and an incentive to batter women, the Long Beach City Council approved an ordinance that regulates the shows at local establishments. Regulation had been advocated by Councilman Warren Harwood, who warned in a memo to his colleagues that "exhibitions of mock fighting between scantily clad females and inebriated male customers may have the effect of sexual arousal, agitation, anger or other strong emotion among those participating and those witnessing these exhibitions."

An article in the May 15 issue of the Long Beach Section inaccurately describes me as a participant in the City Council action of May 13 with regards to Club Sylvia. The article describes me as a "gay activist." The dictionary definition of "gay activist" says: "an individual working at state and local levels to repeal discriminatory legislation--and to win adoption of laws affirming full right regardless of an individual's sexual preference." This would appear to mean that my commitment to the fight against AIDS is merely a "personal sexual preference issue."

I am proud to live in a community where my gay and lesbian neighbors can exercise their constitutional rights as American citizens. Despite efforts by far right-wing reactionaries and scared, narrow-minded bigots, our homosexual residents have become a welcome, accepted part of our city--and it's about time, too. Some people don't realize this is 1985. The future is now. It is beyond amazement how Councilman Warren Harwood can continue to keep both feet in his mouth and still utter banality after banality.

The City Council has begun a push that could ultimately force adult theaters and bookstores out of residential neighborhoods within three years. The council voted unanimously Tuesday to have the city attorney draft an ordinance and have it reviewed by the Planning Commission. Under the proposal, an existing adult bookstore or theater would be uprooted if it is within 500 feet of a residential neighborhood, church, school or public park.

According to the newspapers, Councilman Warren Harwood is backing Craig Garbe and the Long Beach Coalition for Traditional Values. This is a front name for Christian fundamentalists who take it upon themselves to tell you and me what we may see or read or hear. Garbe and his self-appointed guardians of the public soul have been known to pack City Council chambers to force through their religious credos by council edict. Councilman Harwood usually back these righteous fundamentalists.

The Long Beach City Council in a surprise reversal late Tuesday night voted to pay legal costs of the two police officers facing criminal charges stemming from the controversial arrest of black activist Don Jackson. Last week, the council rejected a proposal to pay the officers' legal bills by a 6-3 vote. But during the weekend, a police officer's wife, who is an East Long Beach mother of three, organized volunteers who passed out about 10,000 leaflets asking residents to protest the council decision.

After an emotional debate--punctuated by a finger-pointing confrontation between councilmen Wallace Edgerton and Thomas Clark--a divided City Council on Tuesday backed away from involving itself directly in the redevelopment process. The council, breaking hastily to attend a Veterans Day ceremony, let die a motion by Councilman Warren Harwood to study ways to make the Redevelopment Agency board more accountable to the council. But Harwood insisted later that the issue is not dead.

Councilman Warren Harwood knows firsthand the hazards of redistricting. Five years ago, Harwood was a City Council candidate challenging incumbent Russell Rubley in the 9th District. Harwood had been campaigning hard for months when Rubley and other council members approved a remapping of all nine districts. The redistricting moved a boundary line in the 9th District one block north. It was a small change, except it meant that Harwood's home in North Long Beach was then in the 8th District.
