California Public Utilities Commission President Loretta Lynch, faulted by some for reacting too slowly to early warnings that an energy crisis was looming, endured her first public grilling Thursday before an Assembly oversight committee. During a three-hour Capitol hearing, Republicans sought to poke holes in Lynch's job qualifications while Democrats tried to determine when she first concluded that the electricity situation was dire--and what she did about it.

Re "State Court Upholds Firing of Gay Scout Leader," May 23: It is troubling to read that some Boy Scout leaders believe that promoting prejudging, ignorance and discrimination is helpful in the stated goal "to promote citizenship training, character and personal fitness."

Giuliani said workfare initiatives already have cut the number of welfare recipients by 400,000 since March 1995. He said the nearly 800,000 still receiving benefits can expect further scrutiny. In June, the city began evaluating the job qualifications of disabled welfare beneficiaries.
