Jim de Boom, who resigned after just a week as president of the board of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, stepped down because an angry parent vowed to publicize problems that had led to De Boom's ouster from the local YMCA's top job several years ago. The parent said De Boom's role in creating a significant debt at the YMCA shows that he would probably be a poor choice to head the school district in the wake of the largest school embezzlement in California history.

Urban land guerrillas may be proud of the fact they got a park bench after delaying the redevelopment of the Treasure Island project not for months but for years (June 16). The environmentalist legacy continues to be delaying projects, increasing costs to the developer and local governments and restricting access to the coast by the general public because of high costs.

With the 300% price increase on a barrel of oil being charged by the members of OPEC, I wonder if the OPEC nations still need the foreign aid and military aid the United States provides some of the countries. With the profits they are making, they should be able to take care of their own domestic and military needs. The foreign aid and military aid funds should be redirected for relief of the gasoline-buying public in the United States. JIM DE BOOM Newport Beach

Newport-Mesa Unified School District board members said they are reluctant to endorse a proposed half-cent sales tax to bail Orange County out of its financial problems. Board President Judith A. Franco said she would need more information about the tax, how the money would be spent and the 1995-96 county budget before taking a position. Board members Jim de Boom and James M. Ferryman agreed that they want evidence that the county is slicing its own budget before taxpayers are asked to ante up.

Jim de Boom, a 12-year veteran of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District's board, has been elected president for the coming year. De Boom, 54, succeeds Judy Franco in the largely ceremonial position. He has held the post twice before, but this year will hold special significance, de Boom said, because the board president signs the district high schools' diplomas, and his daughter is a senior at Newport Harbor.

Fearing the Newport-Mesa Unified School District has changed its mind about leasing to the city some farmland next to Costa Mesa High School, the City Council has postponed approving its plan to build athletic fields on the site. "I don't think it is a good idea to put people through the public hearing process if it is not available," said City Manager Allan L. Roeder.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District learned this week that it will likely have at least 100 more new students next year than it had anticipated. A consultant hired by the district reported to the board Tuesday that nearly 1,000 new students are projected to enroll in district schools this fall. Earlier, the district had said it expected 816 new students. The report said that the majority of the additions will be in kindergarten and first grade.
