The Newhall Ranch specific plan is specifically about campaign financing. Attendance at a Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting is sufficient to see the power of the legal bribes called campaign contributions. How can Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich be expected to make an objective decision about the fate of the project known as Newhall Ranch when the vast and powerful corporation that owns the property has given thousands of dollars to get Mr. Antonovich elected?

Friday afternoon, July 5, my partner and I were approaching a Glendale yogurt shop as our supervisor, Mr. Antonovich, was departing, cone in hand. As we watched, his expensive, chauffeured conveyance whisked him away, presumably to consume his yogurt cone while contemplating additional means of "personal enhancement." Obviously his recent raise has left him a little short of cash. Perhaps if he could close another park or two, he could afford a cone for his driver as well.

Re Political Briefing, "Antonovich's Simple Cure for Almost Any Ill: Law and Border," Nov. 29. Mr. Antonovich, I am in your corner 100% on this matter of illegal immigrants. I have no problem with anyone being here in America as long as they are here legally and they obey the law of the land. It is only those people who are here illegally that I despise. As for Gloria Molina and her statement, "Believe it or not, these kids are as American as you or me": How absurd her statement sounds.

County Supervisor Michael Antonovich has some nerve to suggest (Letters, July 17) that the advocates of the Metro Red Line are subjecting the Valley to unnecessary delay in obtaining rail transit. The most vocal critic of rail systems this county has ever known has been the same Mr. Antonovich, lover of people-movers, jitneys, paratransit, mag lev, anything but the real thing. Why does he wish to cut up the Red Line? Of all the countless transit studies done over the past 60 years, none has ever considered fragmenting the trunk line at the portal to the San Fernando Valley.

The voters who favored the monorail system were about 10% of the eligible voters. 1990 was one of those years in which fewer than half of those eligible actually bothered to vote. The reason there has never been a fatality on a monorail is because there are so few passenger miles per year traveled, and because the average speed is about 25 m.p.h. The "existing right of way" Supervisor Mike Antonovich mentions in his letter of Jan. 8 has not yet been approved by the agencies of jurisdiction.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich and his political opponent, Baxter Ward, criticized each other's handling of Olive View Medical Center during an Encino debate Tuesday. Antonovich accused Ward of allowing the damaged medical center in Sylmar to remain an "empty hulk of rusted steel" during his 8 years as supervisor, from 1972 to 1980. The medical center, destroyed by an earthquake in 1971, was reopened after much fanfare last year.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors would like to call its meeting to order. Seriously. By a vote of 3-2 Tuesday, the supervisors approved a resolution to "keep order and decorum" at its weekly meetings, which have in recent months been visited by a sharp-tongued tailor from South Los Angeles. Supervisor Gloria Molina was particularly fed up with the gadfly in question, Merritt Holloway, who often seeks to address the board on 20 or more agenda items at a time.

Responding to concerns that plans to rebuild the Los Angeles County Museum of Art could result in environmental damage to the La Brea Tar Pits, county leaders voted Tuesday to ask representatives from both landmarks to present details about the proposal to the Board of Supervisors within the next 45 days. But the vote came after some acrimony between Supervisors Zev Yaroslavsky and Mike Antonovich, after Antonovich raised the matter. "The board has not been given the courtesy of a briefing.

Hoping to add another weapon to Los Angeles County's firefighting arsenal, Supervisor Mike Antonovich urged the Air National Guard on Monday to move planes capable of dumping fire-retardant chemicals from Ventura County back to Van Nuys Airport. The suggestion drew immediate criticism from San Fernando Valley homeowners groups, airport management and the Air Guard itself.

In their first joint campaign appearance since the primary, Supervisor Mike Antonovich and his challenger, Baxter Ward, wasted no time Thursday providing voters with a taste of what the final weeks of the hotly contested race could be like: down and dirty. Before a Chamber of Commerce audience in La Canada, both candidates used the other's political track record for target practice.
