The editorial "Only Red Ink and a Red Face" (April 8) about the ongoing lawsuits against the city of Santa Ana should make City Manager Dave Ream more careful next time when trying to evict the homeless. I think the city should be more sensitive and try being helpful rather than vindictive toward these helpless people. JAIME B. VEGA Santa Ana

In reference to article "Bush Breaks Campaign Vow, Says New Taxes Are Necessary" (June 27), I would just like to say "I told you so." JAIME B. VEGA Santa Ana

Regarding the editorial "Committing an Omission" (Aug. 2) about the elimination of the Commission on the Status of Women and the Human Relations Commission by the Orange County Board of Supervisors: I strongly agree with the conclusion: "It is possible that the two commissions, which cost about $430,000 a year, could be combined. That's preferable to disassembling either, or both. The Human Relations Commission could be rescued, if need be, through a public/private partnership. Its long and honored service is worth maintaining."

Dist. Atty. Michael Capizzi does not represent the majority of the community, and it was unfair to the democratic process when the Orange County Board of Supervisors appointed him to the post. People should be reminded how unethical this present board has been to all taxpayers. Capizzi will continue to follow in its footsteps. JAIME B. VEGA Santa Ana

Your editorial "Toward a Truly Free Panama" (Dec. 26) focuses on one man, Manuel Noriega. We have forgotten the innocent Panamanians and the price they must pay because of U.S. intervention. Panama deserves sovereignty and dignity and not a rape by the most powerful country in the world. JAIME B. VEGA Santa Ana

Your excellent editorial states, "Two senators whose views of the world do not mesh--Democrat Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Republican Orrin Hatch of Utah--are sponsoring this important child-care bill. Their measure would help states create new child-care programs, establish safety standards for operating those programs and help poor families pay for their children's care." Any money invested in the children of America is worth the investment many times over. My sincere blessings go to these two senators.

Re the editorial "Contagious Disease of Committee-itis" (Dec. 20) wherein you speak of cutting on "committees that duplicate efforts or whose task is done." I think it is appropriate and a step in the right direction to trim the fat off government. But I especially agree with your suggestion that the "2-year-old Citizens Advisory Committee on International Affairs" should not be eliminated since the city of Irvine has much more to gain than to lose by doing so.

In response to your editorial ("It's What You Do That Counts," Oct. 31) I commend state Sen. Art Torres and Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre for their courage in accepting their disease (alcoholism) and doing something about it. Now more than ever they remain my heroes of politics. They will serve as good role models for young Chicanos in the barrios and wherever alcohol is prevalent. If Chicanos win the war on drugs and alcohol then nothing can stop them from achieving success in life.

Re "Pringle Defends Seat in Hot O.C. Assembly Race" (Oct. 21) reporting that Assemblyman (Curt) Pringle doesn't think that the poll guard incident which occurred in the last election and prevented many Latinos from voting is an issue in this year's race. I beg to differ with the freshman assemblyman in that we Chicanos in the 72nd District have made unseating him our highest priority because of his prejudice towards the Mexican-American community. Pringle does not represent the 72nd Assembly District adequately and must not be reelected, and Chicano activists are going to make sure of that through the electoral process.

I'm in agreement with that editorial, "Hey, Let's Not Have a Cow, Man," (May 12) about some Orange County school administrators barring the Bart Simpson shirts on their campuses. It is undemocratic, unconstitutional and closed-minded to prevent students from expressing themselves. As Assemblyman John Vasconcellos stated: "In those cases where students do wear Bart Simpson as an expression of their self-doubt, administrators who send them home to change are missing a great opportunity to help."

Re: "Mayor Foresees a Shiny Future for Santa Ana" (April 9). Mayor Daniel H. Young at one time showed a lot of compassion for the downtrodden, but ever since he changed from Democrat to Republican, he not only changed his principles, but he sold out a lot of his staunch supporters. One recent example has been that of the homeless and the disregard he has for the displacement of Latino families by redevelopment. But rightly so, Legal Aid has sued the city. So has Hermandad Mexicana Nacional on behalf of these groups.

Regarding Rudy Castruita's commentary, "Santa Ana Schools Meet Challenge of Ethnically Varied Student Body" (March 25), where he states, "Nearly 80% of our graduates pursue some form of higher education. Last year, UCI did a transcript survey and determined that 23% of our seniors were qualified for UC schools. That number is up from the previous year." Furthermore, "We recently produced our first bilingual newsletter, and our cable TV bulletin board now offers messages in Spanish as well as in English.
