I am against any trade that will break up the foundation of the existing Anaheim Angel team. Let's not forget how often hangnails, bruises, and strains have kept big Mark McGwire on the bench, or the DL. Great teams are built on strong foundations, and the Angels, more than any other team, should have learned by now that the "quick fix" just doesn't work. Garret Anderson, Jim Edmonds, Tim Salmon, Gary DiSarcina and Darin Erstad are an integral part of any future Angel success. For those who like to play trade and play, we've already done that pretty successfully with Tony Phillips and Dave Hollins.

There's good news for motorists parking their vehicles in Bellflower. Instead of automatically reaching for their citation books whenever they spot an illegally parked vehicle (as they have been wont to do too frequently in the past), parking enforcement officers have been instructed to adhere to the city's general policy of politely requesting offenders (when they are in attendance or obviously close by) to move to an appropriate location. And only when a motorist refuses to move, or is a repeat or chronic offender, promises City Administrator Jack A. Simpson, will a ticket be issued.

Local politicians and political activists in southeast Los Angeles County were hardly shocked by Thursday's indictment of Paul Carpenter, their former state senator. After all, many noted, allegations of political corruption are almost commonplace these days. But there was a feeling of regret that the one-time senator may have gone bad. "I had the highest regard for him," said veteran Norwalk Councilman Robert E. White.

Jack A. Simpson, the city administrator of Bellflower and a veteran of local government, resigned unexpectedly from the city's top post this week amid a report that the City Council asked him to step aside. Simpson cleared out his desk Tuesday and turned in his keys, offering his staff no immediate reason for leaving a position he held for 13 years. However, one council member said Simpson's resignation followed pressure from elected officials.

The cars and trucks are gone now. Plastic streamers of pink, orange, green and yellow flutter languidly over the deserted lot. The giant "Pete Ellis FORD" sign towers over the 91 Freeway, its electronic signboard unplugged but still noticed by passing motorists. "People come by here every day," said a security guard watching over the empty lot from the shade of the service bay entrance. "They say, 'What happened?' " He shrugs. "I don't know; I just say they went out of business."

Proposals by state lawmakers to balance California's budget by taking millions of dollars from local governments have Southeast-area officials angry, frustrated and more than a little bit frightened. With the state billions of dollars in the hole, legislators are considering siphoning off $1 billion to $2 billion from funds normally given to cities. No decisions have been made, but just the possibility of such cuts has local leaders panicking.

Yorba Linda City Manager Art Simonian was recently put on a paid administrative leave of absence by a bare City Council majority of three votes following a career of nearly 30 years (Aug. 18). The three, led by the publicity-seeking mayor who is a candidate for state Assembly and a council member who has already resigned his position, claim that they were unaware of the city's long-standing staff bonus program. Certainly well-informed City Council members should be cognizant of all city programs, and a highly professional staff should uniformly provide comprehensive information to all City Council members.

In a telephone interview last week from his Long Beach apartment, Pichetto said he decided to leave this small, working-class city to protect his "own best interest."
