OPINION

Re "Ruling hits home schooling," March 6 I beg to differ with California 2nd District Court of Appeal Justice H. Walter Croskey, who wrote, "Parents do not have a constitutional right to home school their children." It's my understanding that the Constitution grants the government only specifically enumerated powers, and all powers not specifically granted to the government are retained by the people. Unless Croskey can cite where the Constitution grants the government the power to teach our children, that power is retained by us. Robert Westcott Alhambra -- What does the appellate court propose the public school system do with these 160,000-plus kids?

Dannemeyer on Thursday introduced legislation in Congress to exempt hazardous waste cleanup projects from lengthy local environmental review. "Basically, the congressman's logic and reason for this is found in the instance of McColl dump," said David Ellis, a spokesman for the Fullerton Republican.

A state appeals court Thursday cleared Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich of a civil claim that he conspired to influence a judge on behalf of a campaign contributor, voiding a $1.2-million judgment that might have been billed to county taxpayers. The case sprang from a call Antonovich made to Superior Court Judge Eric Younger in 1988 on behalf of campaign contributor Krikor Suri, who was enmeshed in a lawsuit over his Downtown jewelry business with partner Avedis Kasparian.

By striking down tax laws that treat citizens unequally, the U.S. and now the California Supreme Court may be starting to polish off Proposition 13. The state would benefit from that. The latest case represents a temporary setback for beleaguered school districts trying to raise money with taxes or fees imposed on developers.
