A former city councilman has won the exclusive right to negotiate a contract to set up a temporary business venture--rent-free--on a ranch purchased by taxpayers two years ago. Over the objections of two council members, the council majority Tuesday selected the proposal of stable owner Jerry V. Harris to operate an equestrian center--including a ranch, rodeo ring and bed-and-breakfast inn--on the 31.3-acre Swanner Ranch property. The former citrus ranch was bought in 1991 for $6.

Westminster City Council candidate Tony Lam widened his lead against opponent Margie Rice in the absentee ballot count released Monday, while Collene Campbell and incumbent Councilman Jerry V. Harris are still separated by only a handful of votes in the San Juan Capistrano race for City Council. The Orange County registrar of voters still has 4,000 to 5,000 ballots left to count countywide and will announce final results on Friday.

In a pair of 3-2 votes that could indicate the arrival of a two-party system of sorts in this city, Gil Jones was elected this week to serve another one-year term as mayor and council newcomer Collene Campbell was elected mayor pro tem. Jones, a council member since 1990 who has served as mayor for the past year, won the honorary title again with the support of Campbell and Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer.

Councilman Jerry V. Harris and his running mate, Collene Campbell, received four endorsements Tuesday, including one from Sheriff Brad Gates. Those endorsements countered last week's announcement that council candidates Carolyn Nash and Stan Kensic had won the support of Councilman Jeff Vasquez. Eight candidates are running for two council seats in Tuesday's election.

The race for three seats on the City Council in the Nov. 6 election offers an eclectic field of candidates, ranging from an incumbent seeking his fourth term to a 19-year-old college student. No matter who is elected to the City Council, the race will be noteworthy for at least two reasons. First, two of the three incumbents have chosen not to run, thereby guaranteeing the council at least two new faces for the first time since the 1970s.

A bitterly divided City Council clashed anew this week over a proposal to let a former colleague set up a temporary business on historic ranchland bought by the taxpayers two years ago. Councilman Jeff Vasquez was pitted against Mayor Gil Jones and council members Gary L. Hausdorfer and Collene Campbell as the council--reluctantly but unanimously--agreed Tuesday to have City Atty.

School board candidates in three districts will take office without ever appearing on the ballot because no one filed to run against them by the filing deadline Wednesday. Because they would have appeared on the ballot unopposed during the general election in November, the candidates in the three school districts--Brea-Olinda Unified, Los Alamitos Unified and Centralia--will assume the offices, an election official said.

The residents of San Juan Capistrano own the 31.3-acre Swanner Ranch property; they bought it for $6.95 million with money from the Save Open Space Bond the voters passed in 1990. Residents won't find out for several years how the property might best be used and how much money it could earn. There's no good explanation for why this planning process will take that long; the city ought to have had a better idea by now how the property taxpayers bought would be used.

Two results of the November City Council election have already been decided: The council is assured of a new face for only the fourth time in 12 years, and the familiar face of longtime City Councilman Kenneth B. Friess will be gone. Friess, 50, will end 19 consecutive years of city service when he leaves the council next month, including nearly 17 years as a council member and two years on the city Planning Commission.

If anyone thinks that his or her vote, or any one vote, really doesn't make a difference, studying the final results of some of the elections held around Orange County on Tuesday should make them think again. In balloting for two seats on the San Juan Capistrano City Council, Carolyn Nash was the top vote-getter with 5,136 votes. Winning the second seat on the ballot was Collene Campbell with 4,136 votes, an even 1,000-vote difference.
