On the morning of his would-be wedding day, Franz Wisner woke up in bed with John Dawkins. A raging party had left his friends scattered around him, including at the foot of his bed. Wisner wandered through the sprawling rented house on the scraggy Sonoma coast and surveyed the damage: empty Cabernet bottles, stains on the chairs, a broken deck rail. Wisner's girlfriend of nearly a decade had dumped him only days before, sending him into shock.

Michael Stockstill, senior director of media relations at the Irvine Co., has resigned after only four months on the job, he and the real estate development company said Monday. Stockstill said he left Friday to work in a consulting position, which he declined to name. Stockstill, who previously worked for the Newport Beach company from 1978 to 1991, is the latest in a long list of executives and employees who have quit Orange County's largest landowner in the past year. Among others who have left were Gary H. Hunt, once a key aide to chairman and owner Donald L. Bren, and a number of his top community and government relations executives, including Larry Thomas, Carol Hoffman, Franz Wisner and Paul Kranhold.

Your cover story "The Incredible Journey" (by Robert Salladay, Jan. 23) initially appealed to me because I occasionally want to run away from it all. However, by the end of the story I felt sick. What a coward Franz Wisner appears to be. I was raised on food stamps and welfare with four sisters and a single mother who commuted 50 miles each way to earn her English degree and teaching credential. She did not quit. She got us off of welfare. I put myself through college and overcame labels such as "hyper" and "retard" and the demon of alcohol.

A school district survey was not tainted by unauthorized questions added by the Irvine Co., school board members said Tuesday night. But Irvine Unified School District officials expressed dismay that the company added the questions without the district's knowledge. The added questions related to a range of community issues, including the city's November mayoral election. "I immediately contacted the Irvine Co. and told them I thought that was inappropriate," Supt. Dennis M. Smith said.

A 7,500-year-old, quartz-hard American Indian sculpture of a bear has joined the ranks of reptiles, insects, minerals and fossils as an official symbol of the state of California. Taking time out from budget woes, Gov. Pete Wilson this week signed into law a bill that makes the Chipped Stone Bear the official prehistoric artifact of California--the first state in the nation to make such a designation.

G. Mitchell Wilk, a staunch proponent of telephone industry deregulation who was viewed by utility watchdog groups as a foe of consumers, said Wednesday that he will resign from the California Public Utilities Commission, effective Oct. 4. The departure of Wilk, 44, enables Gov. Pete Wilson to make his third appointment to the five-member regulatory body since taking office last January. His two earlier appointments were Norman D. Shumway and Daniel W. Fessler.
