"Laws With Raw Edges" (editorial, Jan. 22) was insightful and informative; however, it missed a key point. Community notification about sex offenders is necessary because the odds of a repeat offense are too high when the stakes are no less than the safety of children. While skeptics do not feel this law is necessary, or that it may trample on civil liberties, public notification laws like we now have in California recognize that parents have a right to safeguard their children from abuse.

"Republican" is not a word Jayne Murphy Shapiro uses lightly. At least not in the solidly Democratic 41st Assembly District, a scenic stretch of beaches and mountains where Shapiro is convinced the "R-word," as she calls it, hurts her more than it helps. At a recent candidates forum, a gray-haired man rushed up to Shapiro when she finished speaking to ask her her party affiliation. "I can't find it anywhere on your campaign literature," he said.

Hats off to Jayne Murphy Shapiro for her common-sense remarks on school violence and its prevention (Valley Perspective Interview, Sept. 12). I am tired of the blame-game, reactionary approach to this issue and agree that the way to deal with out-of-control behavior is not to attack teachers or to condemn parents. It takes working together to make specific and proactive recommendations on safety measures. Why can't our political leaders see things like she does? We need to start implementing programs that bring people and the resources available together to find solutions that are preventive as well as prescriptive.

The crowded Democratic primary race for the 41st Assembly District is shaping up to be one of the more quirky of the season, pitting a nationally respected manager of a public agency who moved here two years ago against three established, home-grown public servants with state-level ambitions. Four Democrats, two Republicans and a Libertarian are vying for the seat of Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), who is running for the state Senate.

The Democratic primary for the 41st Assembly District is shaping up to be one of the quirkier of the season, pitting a nationally respected manager of a public agency who moved here two years ago against three established, home-grown public servants with state-level ambitions. Four Democrats, two Republicans and a Libertarian are scrambling for the seat being vacated by Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), who is running for the state Senate.

Jayne Murphy Shapiro founded a child advocacy group called Kids Safe in 1995 with the goal of protecting children from abuse and molestation in the United States. But recently the nonprofit organization has turned its attention to school safety. In April, following the school massacre in Littleton, Colo., it appointed a five-member task force to hold hearings and consult nearly 200 administrators, teachers, parents, psychologists, police officers and community activists about school safety.

As a Democrat excited about moderate Republican Jayne Murphy Shapiro's candidacy for the 41st Assembly District, I was disappointed by your blatantly partisan coverage in "Primary Pits Money Against Local Appeal," Feb. 7. By showing pictures and capsule summaries only of Democrats, you did a disservice to the voters in the 41st District, who fortunately have several fine candidates for whom they can vote. For the first time, California has an open primary where we can vote for the candidate of our choice regardless of party.

David Freeman, general manager of the city Department of Water and Power, challenging Freeman to two debates, including one on ethics issues.
