It was not the room-temperature ham-and-cheese omelets that roused these political junkies to a City of Industry hotel banquet room at the otherwise ungodly hour of 7:30 one recent Friday morning. What brought them out was the season's first campaign forum in the 41st Congressional District and the candidates who would show up for it--or, more accurately, the candidate who wouldn't. "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Congressman Kim can't be here," an aide from Washington said cryptically.

The City Council decided last week not to appeal a Superior Court judge's ruling that the city must accept petitions from a citizens group seeking a referendum on the General Plan. Activists rallying behind an organization called Diamond Bar Citizens to Protect Country Living collected more than 4,000 signatures--only about 2,600 valid ones are needed--this fall to force the referendum.

For the second time in less than a year, the Diamond Bar City Council has voted to repeal its General Plan rather than let voters decide the fate of the development guideline. Mayor Gary Werner and council members Eileen Ansari and Clair Harmony voted Tuesday night to rescind the plan. They said the council can work with citizens to make substantial changes instead of holding an election at a cost of $50,000 or more to the city.

Rep. Jane Harman's decision to run for governor and the retirement of Rep. Esteban Edward Torres guarantee two new faces in Los Angeles County's congressional delegation, and Rep. Jay C. Kim's legal problems create the strong possibility that a third freshman will join the group. Kim (R-Diamond Bar), who has been serving a home detention sentence at his northern Virginia residence for receiving $250,000 in illegal campaign contributions, faces tough primary opposition.

I want to complain a little about Kevin Uhrich's article "Diamond Bar in the Rough" (Aug. 11). Technically the article is basically correct, but its attempt to be sardonically whimsical casts the same light on all players. We have worked hard and long to change our city's pro-growth leadership. We are the regular, normal citizens--"the little guys." Of course we argue, debate and "squabble," but so would you in order to expose special interests who have been detrimentally running your community.

His electronic ankle bracelet off and the worst of his sentence behind him, Rep. Jay Kim (R-Diamond Bar) planned to return to his district today for the first time since a judge placed him under home detention two months ago. Denied by voters the GOP nomination in the 41st Congressional District this month, Kim flies home a lame duck as his historic political congressional career winds to an inauspicious close.

A Diamond Bar councilwoman who lost her bid for reelection Tuesday blamed a flier that linked her to groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan. "The only thing it didn't accuse me of was killing somebody or being a serial child molester," Eileen Ansari said Wednesday. Tuesday's unofficial election results showed Ansari, a councilwoman for eight years, losing by 118 votes. Leaflets attacking Ansari, whose Pakistan-born husband and three children are Muslim, were placed on doorsteps late last week.

In a decision that bewildered even some who voted for it, the Diamond Bar City Council last week approved a development plan that would allow Arciero & Sons to begin building on a portion of Sandstone Canyon that has been locked in controversy for several years. "We spent over an hour, and the developer indicated he didn't want any more continuances, so out of frustration, I guess, I voted in support of the project," Mayor Gary Werner said. "Why did I vote that way? Good question.

The election of former Diamond Bar City Councilman Gary G. Miller to the state Assembly might well break the deadlock over the speakership in Sacramento, but it also creates an uncertain few months for the council he leaves behind. The remaining council members are scheduled to discuss how to handle the open seat--created by Miller's election last week to the seat formerly held by Assemblyman Paul Horcher--at the next regular council meeting on June 6.
