I want to thank your writer Tim Waters for his splendid article regarding "Silencing an Outspoken Publisher." We need more muckraking papers, such as The Monitor, to make the politicians more attentive to the people's problems. During the '20s and '30s, we had the great and famous muckraker (the late) Lincoln Steffens. Unfortunately, we do not have anyone like him now. I support Enrica Stuart and subscribe to her muckraking quarterly publication, which happens to be a thorn in the side of some politicians.

The mayor of Rancho Palos Verdes has lifted a ban that prevented a local newspaper publisher from speaking at council meetings. After listening to arguments from the American Civil Liberties Union that he was trampling on publisher Enrica Stuart's rights, Mayor Mel Hughes lifted his earlier edict prohibiting Stuart from speaking as a citizen during public hearings because she is also a journalist. Stuart, 63, for two years has produced the Monitor, a quarterly newspaper, from her home.

Thank you to Tim Waters' recent article "Silencing an Outspoken Publisher" about Enrica Stuart. Rancho Palos Verdes' City Council naturally finds her investigative journalism offensive--she has consistently and accurately exposed behind-the-scenes council dealings and developer conflict of interest. The council has yet to refute her credible and well-researched articles. Stuart has developed a respected reputation on the hill for credible and truthful reporting--when her papers appear at no cost in local outlets they are immediately snatched up, especially since people are hungry for an alternative to the benign Peninsula News.

I want to congratulate Tim Waters for his article (Times, May 25) about Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor Mel Hughes trying to "gag" the publisher of the Monitor, Enrica Stuart. It is comforting to know that there are reporters around who will stand up and be counted! The mayor said that Mrs. Stuart cannot be both a member of the press and a member of the public. That is nonsense. The mayor conveniently ignores that Mrs. Stuart wanted to address the council as a resident, not a press person; she told him so twice--I heard her. The Monitor has been expressing the views of many residents on the Peninsula and has been the only newspaper, so far, with the spunk to take on City Hall.

Enrica Stuart says the idea behind her Rancho Palos Verdes newspaper, the Monitor, is to jab officialdom. "You might say I am punching everyone in the nose, right and left," said the 63-year-old publisher of her feisty quarterly. "I don't care who they are." The paper regularly excoriates council members for alleged misdeeds, sometimes without any response from its targets.

Enrica Stuart, publisher of the feisty Rancho Palos Verdes newspaper, the Monitor, is free once again to speak her mind at City Council meetings. After listening to arguments from the American Civil Liberties Union that he was trampling on Stuart's constitutional rights, Mayor Mel Hughes Tuesday night lifted his earlier edict prohibiting Stuart from speaking as a citizen during public hearings because she is also a journalist. "I am satisfied," Stuart said after the council meeting.

Rancho Palos Verdes property owners have filed two lawsuits against the county claiming that it has illegally imposed large liens on them to pay for public works projects in the Abalone Cove landslide area. The suits, filed separately in Los Angeles Superior Court by 14 property owners and by Arizona developer James Monaghan, allege that the county acted improperly when it created an assessment district in the area and imposed the liens to guarantee $10 million in bonds.
