Hal Brown, a Marin County supervisor who is a first cousin to former Gov. Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr., has announced his candidacy for state insurance commissioner in next year's elections. Brown, 53, a Democrat, said he will run primarily on the theme that the incumbent commissioner, Republican Chuck Quackenbush, has not adequately protected consumers. He charged that Quackenbush's California Earthquake Authority, the state quake insurance agency, is already a failure.

It happened so quickly -- almost in the blink of an eye -- that Carroll Hardy remembers precious few details. It seemed so insignificant. "Nobody thought a thing about it," Hardy says. "It wasn't a big deal, that's for sure." The date was Sept. 20, 1960. Hardy, a baseball journeyman, was nestled into his usual spot on the bench. The reserve outfielder and his Boston Red Sox teammates were in Baltimore, where Ted Williams was playing out the final days of his Hall of Fame career.

As the director of the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), I took a great deal of interest in a recent article titled "Family Left Shaken in Molestation Case," Oct. 7. I cannot provide the facts of this case because of confidentiality statutes as well as my belief that children do not deserve to have the details of their abuse and neglect made public. However, I would like to clear up some possible misconceptions concerning the laws DCFS operates under. DCFS does not investigate cases where children are abused by unknown persons who live outside the home.
