Board of Supervisors Chairman Harriett M. Wieder said Wednesday that the county will not defy a state-mandated shift of local property tax revenue to fund California public schools. Wieder's decision effectively ends Orange County's opposition to the Legislature's controversial budget plan, which takes $2.6 billion in property taxes from local governments.

Orange County supervisors grudgingly endorsed the state's half-cent sales tax Tuesday, saying they were forced to in a "devious scheme" by the state Legislature. The resolution, approved in a 4-1 vote, effectively guarantees that the county will receive about $75 million through December to pay for critical public safety services that were threatened by budget cuts. "In considering this, I have had the feeling that a gun has been put in our back," Board of Supervisors Chairman Harriett M.

More than six months after they were first dragged into the debate over malathion spraying, county supervisors finally washed their hands of the issue Tuesday, unanimously voting to end the county's state of emergency over the Mediterranean fruit fly. The state has completed its spraying program in Orange County, and so there is no further need for the emergency declaration. "This is the day I've been looking forward to," Board Chairman Don R.

Stung by proposed cutbacks in state aid at a time when they are already grappling with their own budget woes, Orange County supervisors are expected to adopt a resolution Tuesday decrying the state rollbacks. The cuts, outlined in Gov.

Orange County supervisors, who have been forced to grapple with declaring a county state of emergency every two weeks for the past six months because of the Mediterranean fruit fly, will gratefully wash their hands of the subject today, officials predicted. Board Chairman Don R. Roth circulated a letter to his colleagues Monday in which he asked them to join him in formally ending the state of emergency now that the state has completed its aerial malathion-spraying program in Orange County.

Two weeks ago, all five Orange County supervisors signed a resolution commending the South Coast Air Quality Management District on the completion of its new headquarters. On Tuesday, they took it back. Voting 3 to 2, the supervisors rejected the same resolution that they had signed--some of them unwittingly--in late November. And because it was presented to the AQMD as part of the district's Nov.

Seeking to attract more state money to combat gang activity in Orange County, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday adopted a resolution expressing its concern over the dramatic increase in gang violence in the past five years. Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder said more money is needed to hire full-time gang officers in local police departments, conduct gang-suppression programs, and establish computer linkups between county law enforcement agencies and a centralized gang-information bank.

I resolve to celebrate Mass and hear confessions at the central jail once a month during 1991. I resolve to make a difference in the effort against gangs and drugs in the county. I resolve to help Hispanic families meet the challenges of sharing their faith and culture with their children. I resolve to continue working with voluntary and public leadership to build an Orange County that cares for the least among us.

I'd like to see our beaches and parks preserved--free from development. I'd like to see that all future development considers the current residents, and takes in practical and sensible planning for traffic control. We hope to build a better public education plan, and try to get more and better community involvement by going to the different groups throughout the community and getting them involved.

I will keep the promise I made six months ago when I became chairman to take the bus, the train or rideshare to work and back at least once a week, and urge others to do the same. I will push to provide early delivery of Measure M sales tax transportation projects for all parts of the county. I will support purchasing of Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroad tracks so passenger trains can have priority with rail freight and commuter rail can become a reality for the Southern California region.

I am going to push for more partnerships between the AQMD and local government agencies. For instance the AQMD and the Regional Transportation Agency must mount a cooperative assault on air pollution and traffic congestion. I am also advocating that cities buy recycled paper and other products to provide a market for this growing industry. Recycling not only reduces solid waste, it cuts energy consumption.

The Bush Administration, in a welcome reversal of policy, now signals that it is ready to take seriously the profound biological and economic implications of global warming. It is preparing to host an international "workshop" on the problem in October as a first step toward achieving a treaty that would try to control activities that contribute to the so-called greenhouse effect. This is a far cry from the go-slow approach urged until just a few days ago by White House Chief of State John Sununu, despite appeals from both the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department that the United States take the international lead in addressing this compelling issue.

In response to drought warnings from state water officials, Orange County supervisors on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution urging business, government and residents to voluntarily cut back water consumption by at least 10%. Although the county does not have the authority to enact mandatory restrictions, the resolution urges water suppliers to push conservation proposals and asks restaurants to post notices that water will be served only to those who ask for it.
