A controversial bill that could block a drive to incorporate Marina del Rey has abruptly gained a new author and turned into a legislative hot potato. First, Sen. Bill Lockyer (D-Hayward), who pushed the bill through the Local Government Committee and onto the Senate floor last month, dropped his proposal, citing "in-house wrangling." Then, lobbyists for the Marina del Rey Lessees Assn., a major backer of the bill, persuaded Sen. Joseph B. Montoya (D-Whittier) to step in to carry it.

Firing a long-expected rhetorical salvo, San Diego mayoral candidate Peter Navarro has begun airing television and radio advertisements that attack his rival Susan Golding by referring to her former marriage to imprisoned felon Richard Silberman. "Silberman committed a crime. Golding is committed to politics as usual," concludes one Navarro TV ad that accuses Golding of having lobbied for legislation and business deals intended to benefit her former husband and his associates.
