Re "Assembly Democrats Put Their Money on Late Entry Roz McGrath," Jan. 31. Jon Sharkey, not Roz McGrath, needs to take on Assemblyman Tony Strickland. Though she came close to beating him last time, Strickland has a record now, a very conservative one, that needs forceful counterattack. Sharkey is hungry to eat him up in debates. Port Hueneme City Councilman Sharkey's campaign, supported by local Democrats, centers around innovative programs to improve the quality of life for locals.

Call it a dispute among friends. The race for the Democratic nomination in the 37th Assembly District involves what some local Democrats see as Sacramento big-footing--but what state party leaders consider a dose of reality for the locals. Democratic Assembly leaders say they're prepared to spend $500,000 to $1 million to help Somis teacher Roz McGrath, who barely lost to Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) in 1998, knock off the incumbent in November.

Saying that no evidence of an active earthquake fault exists at the site, a state panel has denied a final appeal by opponents of Toland Road Landfill, who demanded the dump's closure. The State Water Resources Control Board issued its decision Thursday. Officials with the Ventura Regional Sanitation District, which operates the dump that lies midway between Fillmore and Santa Paula, say they have spent more than $1 million on geologic tests at the site to assess a potential threat.
