Orange County officials are not "telling all the facts" in the bankruptcy of the county investment pool and might be "trying to cover up" information about how the financial crisis evolved, a former U.S. representative said Saturday. Jerry M. Patterson, a former mayor of Santa Ana and Democratic congressman from North County, made the charges in a speech to the Orange Coast League of Women Voters.

Robert W. Battin, a maverick Democratic county supervisor during a rough-and-tumble era of Orange County politics in the 1960s and '70s, died Tuesday. He was 78. The cause of death was a heart attack while recovering from a stroke, said his friend and onetime fiance, Rachel Perry. He died early in the morning at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach. When he was elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors in 1968 after two failed campaigns for the state Senate and Assembly, Battin became the first Democrat on the county board since the Great Depression.

The past few months have not been kind to Dana Point City Atty. Jerry Patterson, a former congressman whose wife is running for county supervisor. First, he was arrested Dec. 15 for alleged drunk driving, a charge that was reduced Thursday to reckless driving--but only after weeks of negative coverage in local newspapers.

To Jerry Patterson: Oh please!!! There were other sympathetic whites in the film, specifically Charles Rocket's character and a blatantly obvious one--Stands With Fist. Granted, director Kevin Costner dwelt perhaps too much on the Native Americans' noble character. But I'm willing to overlook that for the wonderful spectacle he allowed me to be a part of for three hours. PHILLIP RAMSEY Torrance

Why has The Times devoted so much space to the activities of homosexuals and lesbians of late? Are the majority of readers really interested in the goings on of these unfortunate misfits? Why not publicize the activities of a legitimate college sorority rather than the lesbian sisterhood you chose for your March 14 edition? JERRY PATTERSON North Hollywood

I took notice in your coverage of the Democrat convention in Orange County (March 6) that my former opponent of 1984 had a few nasty things to say about me. Interesting that Jerry Patterson, a paid lobbyist for the last 10 years, and who most occasionally asks for time with members of Congress including myself, would burn his bridges this way. Plus, his wife is running for supervisor! After his congressional election defeat, we're told Jerry's choice of soothing reading material was Elizabeth Kubler-Ross' "On Death and Dying."
