Ernest E. Debs, a stubborn, resilient man whose 32-year political career was marked by tempests over allegiance to special interests but also by major contributions to culture, recreation and social services in Los Angeles County, has died at 98. Debs served for 16 years on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors--from 1958 through 1974--at a time when every supervisor was all-powerful in his own district and the board was known as "the five little kings of the county."

If folks are looking for the challenge of a lifetime, this is not it. But if they are trying to get in a good climb, hike or walk, this is great. The views don't hurt either. I started hiking about three years ago, when I moved to Montecito Heights, just northeast of downtown. My friend Rodney Hoffman, who also was one of my professors at Occidental College, invited me on his Sunday hikes in the nearby park. The locals call it Debs Park, but officially it's Ernest E. Debs Regional Park.

The voice on the telephone was as clear--and as angry--as always. You got it wrong, he said. You were careless. You meant to get it wrong. You've always had it in for me. I won that election fair and square. His name is Ernest Debs. From 1958 until 1974, he was a Los Angeles County supervisor, representing the 3rd District, which extends from East Los Angeles to Westwood and Bel-Air and over the Santa Monica Mountains into the San Fernando Valley.

After 12 years of planning, government, philanthropic and corporate figures joined with schoolchildren Friday to break ground on a model urban nature center at Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. The $18-million center should be completed next year, according to directors of the Audubon Society, although they acknowledged that $8 million still must be raised to finance it. A 5,000-square-foot facility will be constructed to house administrative offices and to stage programs.
