The tacked-up flag behind the three Tustin City Council "veterans" (photograph with the story, "Troubles in Tustin," Oct. 1) was a real tacky misuse of the American flag. The real issue, which you just touched on in the article, is the $1-million welfare developer handout given by the three vets. Who really is in control of Tustin: the big developers with their cycloplike drones featured in The Times, or council members John Kelly and Earl J. Prescott, who really do represent the poor ol' taxpayer, me. MICHAEL PAUL DAVID Tustin

Nearly 50 anti-abortion protesters, including a Tustin city councilman, were arrested Friday during a noisy demonstration outside a family planning clinic. About 350 supporters of Operation Rescue arrived at the Doctors Family Planning Medical Group at 14700 Irvine Blvd. about 6:30 a.m. and blocked the clinic's three entrances for nine hours, Tustin Police Sgt.

A rancorous battle raging among members of the Tustin City Council may have led to the loss of an important hotel project in the city and may result in a recall campaign to oust at least one of the two outspoken councilmen who opposed the development. A group of 20 Tustin residents, including homeowner association leaders, met Monday night and considered during a closed-door meeting whether to begin a campaign to oust council members John Kelly and Earl J. Prescott.

Regarding your article (Oct. 1) on the Tustin City Council, I would like to say that the behavior of Earl J. Prescott and John Kelly is an outrage and gross misuse of public office. Before these men were elected, the Tustin City Council was a functional board of representatives, able to deal with city business and make the kinds of decisions that have made Tustin the third fastest-growing city in the county. Since the addition of Prescott and Kelly, the City Council has been mired in such disputes as whether the city should send an anti-abortion letter to Washington and whether council members should apologize for commenting on the rude and childish behavior of other council members.

The City Council on Monday approved an ordinance that requires permits for news racks on public rights of way and blinder racks for those containing sexually explicit materials. The ordinance, which will take effect in 90 days, also regulates the number, size, construction, placement and appearance of the racks. The city has had a ban on news racks on public rights of way since 1973, but it was not enforced until August, when Councilman Earl J.

City Council members approved $60-a-month pay raises for themselves this week despite objections from Councilmen Jim Potts and Earl J. Prescott. The council voted 3 to 2 this week to give final approval to an ordinance that will increase each member's monthly pay to $500. The increase will take effect next April, after citywide elections are held. Prescott had said earlier that he does not think politicians should set their own salaries.

The City Council has voted 3 to 2 to join other Orange County cities in supporting a $1 vehicle registration fee to be used for disposing of abandoned vehicles. Councilman Earl J. Prescott opposed the fee because he routinely opposes new taxes. Councilman Jim Potts, an Irvine police supervisor, opposed it because he said that tow companies and vehicle owners are already paying for disposing of the vehicles. According to Tustin Police Chief W.

Earl J. Prescott will be sworn in Monday to fill a vacancy on the Tustin City Council, city officials said. The 33-year-old a real estate agent was elected Wednesday by a 3-1 council vote. The lone dissenting vote was cast by Councilman Ron Hoesterey, who preferred Planning Commissioner Chuck Puckett for the post, officials said. Prescott will serve the remaining 18 months of former Councilman Don Saltarelli's term. Saltarelli resigned last month after 15 years on the council.
