A special election to fill the state Senate post recently vacated by Larry Stirling will be held Dec. 5, Gov. George Deukmejian announced Wednesday. A special general election scheduled for Jan. 30 will be canceled, however, if any candidate for the 39th Senate District spot earns more than 50% of the vote in the December primary. Stirling resigned his Senate post Friday after Deukmejian appointed him a San Diego municipal judge.

Here is a full list of the things that Paul Pfingst and Larry Stirling, candidates for district attorney of San Diego County, agree on: Proposition 187. Both are against it, although for different reasons. Pfingst, 43, a former prosecutor, says it is unconstitutional; Stirling, 52, a municipal judge, says it is too expensive. Here is a partial list of the things Pfingst and Stirling disagree on: Proposition 184, the "three strikes and you're out" measure. What to do about teen-agers with guns.

Gov. George Deukmejian has called for two special elections to replace former Sen. Larry Stirling (R-San Diego), who was appointed to a Municipal Court judgeship, and former Assemblyman Gary A. Condit (D-Ceres), who was elected to Congress. Both special primary elections will be held Dec. 5, with the general elections, if necessary, on Jan. 30. If one candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the primary, the general election will be canceled.

Having a judge like Larry Stirling on the Municipal Court makes me embarrassed to be a San Diegan ("Judge's Action on Defendant With HIV Draws Fire," June 14). We can now boast of having our own home-grown version of the Helms/Dannemeyer/Dornan politician. I believe Judge Stirling is telling the truth when he denies mopping up after the person with HIV out of ignorance--we have been reading about the virus for years now, and we know AIDS is not an airborne disease. And we know the virus is not present in sufficient quantities in saliva to transmit it to others, even by way of kissing, toothbrush-sharing, or reusing dishes and glasses.

San Diego County has two seats open in the Legislature this election: retiring Sen. Jim Ellis' 39th District seat and the 77th Assembly District spot being vacated by Larry Stirling, who is running for Ellis' seat. Stirling, who has been in the Assembly since 1980, faces only token opposition from real estate broker Benita Berkson, and is clearly the better choice.

Gov. George Deukmejian announced Tuesday that he has appointed freshman state Sen. Larry Stirling (R-San Diego) to a new municipal judgeship in San Diego County. Stirling--an outspoken law-and-order legislator who just last week caused a stir when he jokingly referred to the citizens lobby group Common Cause as "communist" during floor debate--said Tuesday that he asked the governor two months ago to activate his long-standing request for a judicial appointment.

Setting the stage for a rare political showdown between two incumbents, Assemblywoman Lucy Killea (D-San Diego) on Monday announced her candidacy in this December's special election in the 39th State Senate District--a race that will pit her against Republican Assemblywoman Carol Bentley of El Cajon.

When you're running against a popular Republican assemblyman in a heavily Republican district, you seek reasons for optimism wherever you can find them. In Democrat Bill Smelko's case, that means half-jokingly suggesting that his birth date--July 7, or 7-7 numerically--could be a portent of good fortune in his 77th Assembly District race against Assemblyman Larry Stirling (R-San Diego). "Maybe that's my good luck charm," Smelko said, chuckling. "Who knows?"

Republican Larry Stirling considers himself a policy man, not a political hack, so he would just as soon avoid the internal jockeying for position that often dominates the time of the California Assembly. Democrat Steve Peace, on the other hand, has a reputation as a man drawn to action. He is comfortable with political intrigue. If there's a good brouhaha afoot, you're likely to find him in the middle of it.

San Diego County Municipal Judge Larry W. Stirling displayed ignorance about AIDS when he ordered court workers to clean and mop the courtroom after an appearance by a forgery defendant who had tested positive for the AIDS virus, attorneys said Thursday. Stirling's action raised concerns among some in the legal community Monday, when the unidentified 25-year-old defendant answered a bench warrant issued for his arrest.
