One was chief deputy and one was chief assistant under stalwart Dist. Atty. Cecil Hicks. The chief deputy, James G. Enright, was second in command on paper. The chief assistant, Michael R. Capizzi, was second in command in the boss's eye. As the years went by, Enright saw Capizzi, the younger by 13 years, as an apple-polishing upstart. Capizzi saw Enright as a wasted talent whose refusal to grow with the district attorney's office left a management gap that someone had to fill.

This letter is to express our unequivocal support, admiration and respect for former Deputy Dist. Atty. Jeoff Robinson. We speak from a vantage point of very personal knowledge. We served as the direct supervisors over Mr. Robinson during his distinguished and illustrious career as an outstanding prosecutor in the homicide division of the office of the district attorney of Orange County. We found Mr. Robinson to be a lawyer of great integrity, skill and dedication in every task he performed.

The 4th District Court of Appeal refused on technical grounds Thursday to overturn Superior Court Judge Eileen C. Moore's ruling that Orange County supervisors were within their jurisdiction to appoint Michael R. Capizzi as district attorney. But the two prosecutors challenging the supervisors' action are expected to refile their appeal. The justices rejected their arguments because they had failed to include a record of the case, standard procedure when such writs are filed.

Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi, who fell short of his goal in last month's election to retain his office without a November runoff, has switched campaign consultants in an effort to broaden his base. Capizzi said Monday that he has hired Glenn Greener of Greener-Adams in Irvine, who ran Sally Ann Sheridan's successful bid to unseat Irvine Mayor Larry Agran in the June 5 election.

A few months ago, most of them were all but unknown to most county residents. But when the votes were tallied early Wednesday, they had marched into the limelight. John F. Dean, a Whittier College professor of education; Joy L. Neugebauer, a veteran of the Westminster City Council, and James G. Enright, chief deputy district attorney, stunned incumbents by winning enough votes to force November runoffs. None captured a post outright, and two, Neugebauer and Enright, face uphill struggles.

In the hard-fought race for Orange County district attorney, appointed incumbent Michael R. Capizzi had a slim lead over longtime office rival James G. Enright in early returns Tuesday. Capizzi, named chief assistant in 1986, was appointed district attorney by the Board of Supervisors earlier this year after former Dist. Atty. Cecil Hicks resigned to become a judge. Capizzi, who had been Hicks' protege since the early 1970s, led Hicks' drive against political corruption in Orange County.

In a pair of countywide races that have generated intense debate among the candidates but little interest among the electorate, voters are overwhelmingly undecided in their choices for Orange County district attorney and county superintendent of schools, according to The Times Orange County poll. With less than two weeks to go before the election, nearly half the voters in Orange County remain undecided in the race between appointed incumbent Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi and Chief Deputy Dist.

Michael R. Capizzi and James G. Enright, candidates in the November race for district attorney and longtime adversaries within the office, showed voters more than just their cool attitudes toward each other in their first pair of debates last week. They also made clear sharply contrasting viewpoints on how they would run the office. Enright, chief deputy for 24 years, vowed he would show leadership to the deputies within the office by taking on courtroom cases himself.

Two deputy district attorneys seeking to overturn a Superior Court ruling that the County Board of Supervisors acted legally when it appointed Michael R. Capizzi as acting district attorney refiled an appeal Wednesday with the 4th District Court of Appeal here. The previous appeal filed by Chief Deputy Dist. Atty. James G. Enright and Deputy Dist. Atty. Thomas Avdeef was rejected by the appellate court last week on technical grounds.

Members of the Orange County Bar Assn. have rated Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi the most qualified of four candidates running for district attorney in the June 5 election. Chief Deputy Dist. Atty. James G. Enright ranked second. The Bar Assn. poll results, released Thursday, show Capizzi with much greater marks than his opponents in the "highly qualified" category. But if the "highly qualified" and "qualified" categories are combined, Enright closes the gap considerably.

Two prosecutors who lost in the June primary in the district attorney's race formally announced their support for Chief Deputy Dist. Atty. James G. Enright Tuesday against appointed incumbent Michael R. Capizzi. Assistant Dist. Atty. Edgar A. Freeman and Deputy Dist. Atty. Thomas Avdeef also used the news conference to lash out at Capizzi for using employees to walk precincts on weekends in his campaign. Enright assailed Capizzi several weeks ago for using office help in his campaign.

The combatants: Assemblyman Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) faces a political newcomer in Democrat Tom Umberg. Incumbents are usually safe, but Democrats consider this race one of their best chances this year to unseat a Republican because Pringle is sitting in the only district in Orange County that is not dominated by GOP voters. Key issues: This district includes some of the county's most notorious drug and gang neighborhoods, so both candidates are fighting hard for the title of crime fighter.
