Two San Gabriel Valley Assemblymen ascended to the state Senate on Tuesday with victories in separate special elections for neighboring districts. Assemblyman Frank Hill (R-Whittier) had an almost 2-to-1 lead with 99% of the precincts reporting in the 31st Senate District. The four-term legislator will replace state Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights), who resigned last December after serving more than 20 years in the Legislature. Assemblyman Charles M.

House Majority Leader Richard A. Gephardt (D-Mo.) acknowledged Tuesday that he had written 28 overdrafts against his account at the House bank and subsequently has assessed himself $614 in penalties, which he has sent to the Treasury Department. His announcement Tuesday appeared timed to soften the impact of the House Ethics Committee's release--scheduled for Thursday--of the final list of congressmen who wrote bad checks on their accounts at the now-defunct bank.

The politician went out to face the music on Monday, sitting there at a card table with all 407 checks laid out before him, rubber checks that were honored through the tradition-steeped graces of the now-defunct House bank, a perk of his post as a congressman. And there, at the base of the East County Courthouse in El Cajon, U. S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-San Diego) took heat. Plenty of heat. But hardly anyone mentioned the checks. They pounded him, these 50 people, about the economy.

Rep. Ron Packard (R-Carlsbad) announced his bid for a fifth term Monday in a curbside press conference intended to demonstrate his commitment to improved transportation. Packard stood on the shoulder of Route 78 in this San Diego County community, along a six-mile stretch that is being widened with about $17 million in federal funds that he helped deliver. "For our area, transportation is one of the prime issues," Packard said Monday.

Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (D-Whittier) paid a price for challenging Speaker Willie Brown's leadership two years ago--Brown removed Calderon as majority whip, reduced the size of his staff, stripped him of his committee posts, and consigned him to a cramped office. But Brown apparently didn't interrupt Calderon's political advancement. In one of three special legislative elections in Southern California on Tuesday, Calderon is the heavy favorite to win a state Senate seat.

After 10-plus years of serious effort, immigration reform is a reality. It certainly is not a perfect bill, not from anyone's perspective. It is, however, as close to perfection as legislation of this nature ever gets. It has been one of the most controversial and emotional issues Congress has addressed in several years. There has always been a portion of immigration reform that a congressman or senator could cite that justified voting against it. Meantime, our borders remain out of control and the number of crimes involving undocumented aliens continues to grow.

Living as we do at land's end, where a rich variety of nature's gifts has created beauty and climate that is the envy of nearly all who know it, the friction between those who want to build and those who want to preserve is inevitable. Typically, the battle line between the developers and the environmentalists is drawn along the undeveloped side of a mountain, an urban canyon or a bluff overlooking the beach--the attributes that combine to create San Diego County's signature topography.

San Diego County higher education institutions, park lovers and rail travelers fared well in the $36.7-billion budget proposal unveiled Friday by Gov. George Deukmejian. But county government officials, hoping for more state money for alcohol and drug abuse programs and a shift of court operational costs to the state, will no doubt find themselves somewhat disappointed.
