With every union player who crosses the National Football League Players Assn. picket line, the union's position deteriorates and the owners' position strengthens, according to Ken Moffett, who arbitrated the last baseball strike in 1981. Moffett, as befits an arbitrator, has been a disinterested observer in this strike, taking a professional interest but taking no sides. He has been following the strike in the same way most of America has--by reading his local newspaper.

Simi Valley school officials have delayed the sale of two surplus campuses after discovering that they failed to hold required public hearings. Over the objections of some parents, Simi Valley Unified School District trustees had been planning to put the former Belwood elementary school campus out for bids Tuesday and the former Walnut Grove campus out for bids in June. "We took them off the market," board President Janice DiFatta said.

School trustees--tapping an educator who began her career in Simi Valley 28 years ago--selected the district's newest superintendent on a 3-2 vote late Thursday night, Joyce C. Mahdesian, superintendent of Livermore's school district, becomes the ninth leader of the Simi Valley Unified School District since 1990. She will receive a $140,000 annual salary. A string of superintendents with short tenures has given the county's largest school district a reputation of mismanagement.

Having gone through eight superintendents in as many years, Simi Valley school trustees are determined to do their next hire right. Criticized for cutting corners in their last search for a schools chief, Simi Valley Unified School District board members have taken pains this time to go by the book: They have hired a professional consulting firm, created a task force to screen candidates and left themselves plenty of time to make a choice.

Chances are, more than a few of the parents planning to send their kids to Wood Ranch Elementary School this fall were grade-school students themselves when officials first talked about constructing the new campus back in 1982. First emerging as part of a planned major west-end housing project, it has taken two developers one bankruptcy and 16 years to get the $9-million school built. "It's really going to happen," said Janice DiFatta, president of the Simi Valley Unified School District board.
