Former San Diego City Councilwoman Gloria McColl secretly employed a private investigator to gather politically damaging information on 1989 opponent John Hartley but did not disclose the arrangement on campaign spending reports, according to public documents and former campaign workers. In addition, McColl's final campaign spending report makes no mention of more than $15,000 that former campaign manager Marla Marshall claims she is owed for fund-raising activities--a debt that McColl disputes.

A former City Council member pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor charge of committing a lewd act by sitting in his truck and masturbating. John Hartley, 65, who was trying to win back the seat he vacated in 1993, was fined $500 and put on three years' unsupervised probation. A second charge of public urination was dismissed. Hartley was campaigning door to door March 27 when he allegedly went to his truck, urinated into a cup and masturbated. Two women in a nearby house called police to complain.

A former City Council member was arrested Thursday on suspicion of indecent exposure after two women allegedly saw him urinating and masturbating while sitting in a truck, police said. John Hartley, 65, served on the council from 1989 to 1993. He is a candidate to fill the seat held by termed-out Councilwoman Toni Atkins. He had driven to the Kensington neighborhood to do door-to-door campaigning. -- Tony Perry

I've always liked Gloria McColl, and I have considered her a well-meaning, nice lady. No more. Her nasty attack on John Hartley and his name change is just that: nasty! (San Diego at Large, Aug. 30.) I remember a few years ago, John told me of his name change and how much it meant to his grandfather. They were especially close after John's parents divorced, remarried and had additional children. His grandfather's handsome picture was always hung over his desk, and I know it reminds him daily of their special bond.

We don't need a large polluter such as SANDER (trash-burning energy plant) in San Diego. We already rank fifth in the nation for air pollution, and every day the haze in San Diego is getting worse. I don't need numbers to tell me it is smoggy. I see the mountains disappear from view and the air turn brown every afternoon. SANDER would be one of the largest polluters in San Diego County, and we already have too much smog! JOHN HARTLEY San Diego

I was disappointed by the lack of editorial discipline you used in the piece by Leonard Bernstein on John Hartley. In particular, I was taken back by Mr. Bernstein's reference to Mr. Hartley being a "class clown." If someone, other than Mr. Bernstein, made that statement it should be attributed. If not, it should have been edited out of the article. Such comments make it difficult for me to know if The Times is reporting or editorializing in what the reader assumes are news articles.

Our San Diego City Council is at it again. I see where they are now threatening to throw the Sierra Club out of its office in Balboa Park for supporting the district elections initiative. It figures. A City Council elected through the support of developers and the advantage of citywide elections could hardly be expected to be supportive of the Sierra Club. After all, its continued advocacy for the environment must be a constant thorn in the side. But to play hardball by challenging the Sierra Club's right to lease its office in Balboa Park.

With no discussion, the San Diego City Council gave final approval to the hiring of seven new council staff members at a cost of $118,800 for the remainder of the year. The mid-year budget change will give two new staff members to Councilwoman Linda Bernhardt and one each to Deputy Mayor Abbe Wolfsheimer and council members John Hartley, Wes Pratt, Bruce Henderson and Bob Filner. Those six provided the margin of victory in the 6-2 council vote.
