RE "Bush Film: Original or Outrageous?" by Tina Daunt, Sept. 1: I don't need to see "Death of a President" to know I have a huge problem with the premise of the film. My vote goes in the inappropriate column because the film obviously panders to rabid Bush haters and sends an absolutely screwy message to our enemies in the Islamic world. Many films have been made about the assassination of fictional presidents, and Gabriel Range's choice to depict a current and actual president speaks to a very sick mentality.

Gustavo Ortega had expected problems, but nothing like this. The overnight storm, a typical February torrent, had rolled through La Cañada Flintridge, and Angeles Crest Highway stood right in its path. The next day, Ortega surveyed the damage. Less than a mile out, with the rooftops of the city still visible in his rearview mirror, he stopped. The road ahead had nearly disappeared, 24 feet of asphalt reduced to a sliver barely the width of his Expedition. Somewhere in the canyon below lay the rest of the pavement.

WHEN I spoke Monday with Gabriel Range, the 32-year-old British filmmaker behind the explosive new drama "Death of a President" looked a bit shellshocked -- his phone buzzed so often that he finally turned it off. As is often the case, his film (billed here simply as "DOAP") has been denounced by all sorts of people who haven't seen it. If they met Range, they would be in for quite a surprise.

Dick Conti remembers the day, about a decade ago, when a mere four hours of quietly sitting in a cold, windy canyon brought the ultimate reward: sighting a bighorn sheep scrambling 300 feet up the face of a sheer rock cliff. * If only it were that easy now. In March, the latest helicopter survey turned up only 60 bighorn sheep in the San Gabriel Mountains north of Glendora, down from 222 in 1992. In the 1980s, aerial counts found as many as 500 bighorns.

Re " 'Death' of a movie," editorial, Oct. 16 I do not doubt that if "Death of a President" were released using President Clinton's name during his term of office, it would have been condemned by the media and Democrats alike. There have been any number of movies released with fictitious presidents involved in scandal, death threats and other plots. To make a movie targeting a sitting president, and not see the difference, is proof of a total moral meltdown. Shame on director Gabriel Range, the airheads who applaud his morally bankrupt behavior by giving him awards for it and anyone else who is so filled with hatred of President Bush that they justify a movie that targets the president for murder.

The City Council has passed the first reading of an ordinance to increase the Arcadia transient occupancy tax from 5% to 8%, effective Oct. 1. The increase is expected to generate an additional $186,000 for the city. The council is expected to take final action on the ordinance in July. A survey of California cities shows that most have an 8% tax. The city of Los Angeles' occupancy tax is 11% and the county's is 10%. Occupancy taxes in the San Gabriel Valley range from a high of 9.

The California Geological Survey on Wednesday released the latest in a series of seismic hazard maps under a program that has come under fire for showing some earthquake hazards but not others. The latest of the 60-square-mile maps show areas near Acton and Pacifico Mountain, in the San Gabriel range, where an earthquake stronger than magnitude 5.5 could be expected to generate landslides or soil liquefaction.

CONSIDERING THAT PRACTICALLY no one has seen it yet, the film "Death of a President" is garnering an impressive list of enemies. A fictional documentary set in 2007 that depicts the assassination of President Bush, the movie will not be shown in two of the nation's largest theater chains.

Hail pelted the Los Angeles basin from San Pedro to Pacoima, snow fell in the northwest San Fernando Valley, and waterspouts were reported off the Palos Verdes Peninsula on Tuesday as a cold Alaskan storm moved through Southern California. The National Weather Service blamed the bad weather on an upper-level area of low pressure associated with an unstable mass of cold air that knocked overnight temperatures to near-freezing in many parts of the basin.
