KERMIT ALEXANDER is upset. He's too much of a gentleman to be blunt about it. But sitting in his second-story Westwood office, the emotion rumbles out of him like some volcanic aftershock. In person, Alexander makes a formidable impression. Although he's retired from professional football, his biceps bulge like cast-iron drainpipes under his plaid shirt.

For many Orange County executives, 1991 was a year when their pay packages came under greater shareholder scrutiny and corporate boards were cautious in handing out cash bonuses and perks. It mirrored a trend statewide of keeping executive compensation in line with a company's financial performance.
