Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday approved a $12-billion budget after newcomer Gloria Molina failed to get her board colleagues and their staffs to take an unpaid two-day leave to make more money available for health programs. Molina, whose scrappy style enlivened county budget deliberations this year, joined the rest of the supervisors in voting for the spending plan, the biggest in county history.

City of Industry and South El Monte officials and community residents will square off during the next two weeks over whether a proposed $378-million Los Angeles County hospital will be built in one of the two cities.

Pete Schabarum was there--or rather, a smiling picture of the lawmaker, propped up in his usual seat at the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. But the other people presiding over the meeting Saturday at the Hall of Administration were less recognizable. The "supervisors" on this day consisted of a gay activist, a homeless man, a former drug addict, a union representative and Schabarum's photograph.

Ernest Conine's column "Canada's Sensible Approach" (Op-Ed Page, March 26) cogently points out that despite a substantial public desire to reform our health care system in the United States, entrenched interests prevent such reform. Our nation suffers the dubious distinction of being the only Western industrialized country, other than South Africa, without a universal health insurance program. That translates into 37 million Americans without health insurance. Here in California, recent studies have documented that over 5 million Californians lack health coverage.

The suit, filed here by two child advocacy groups, charges that the state has failed to monitor county child welfare systems to bring them into compliance with state and federal rules. State officials refused to comment, saying they had not yet seen the complaint.

Last week's earthquake was a humbling reminder that often a few minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Since 1983 Los Angeles has had a countywide trauma network of highly trained medical personnel and specially equipped ambulances and emergency rooms that have provided immediate treatment for victims of serious accidents, crimes and disasters.
