Harriett Wieder, a longtime assistant to former Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty who later became the first woman elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors, died Monday at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. She was 89. In poor health since a car accident six months ago, she was being treated for pneumonia and died of heart failure, according to longtime family friend Ed Laird. Wieder was known as a maverick who was not shy about taking on the supervisors' "old boys' club," a male-only bastion for almost 100 years until her election in 1978.

It's time Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) headed up a recall for newly elected Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach). His deceptive and fraudulent path to election is deplorable and the sooner we get rid of him the better. CHLOE MOLNAR Huntington Beach I am getting tired of politicians fudging their contributions reports and then when they get caught they say: 1) My accountant filled it out; 2) I didn't read it; 3) I'm new at this; 4) whatever else you might believe.

Re "Tighter money contest in 46th," July 18 Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), a 10-term incumbent, was described as "popular." He is anything but. Like others who are either far right or far left, he will continue to serve as long as districts are gerrymandered to assure that an extremist -- left or right -- is assured victory. In California, incumbents are rarely defeated. We need an educated public that can overcome the special interests that have left our country ungovernable.

A Times writer referred to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) as a "surfing libertarian." Rohrabacher may hang ten now and again, but Holy Cowabunga--he is not a libertarian--he is a conservative Republican! His positions on civil liberties are usually far (right!) from libertarianism. Dana, with whom I became a friend 25 years ago, was indeed an activist libertarian until 1980. Dana then developed a hunger for power. He sacrificed his libertarian principles on an altar of political expediency by first being a wordsmith for Ronald Reagan and next running for Congress as a Republican.

With the source of beach contamination off Surf City's shores still a mystery, Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach) will host a public hearing at City Hall today to discuss a state law that forced beach closures during the summer. "If you think the water's unclear, wait until you see the law," Baugh said in a press release.

Eight congressmen urged the U.S. secretary of Commerce on Wednesday to overturn the state Coastal Commission's ruling against a proposed toll road that would cut through San Onofre State Beach. The eight are Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar), Ken Calvert (R-Corona), John Campbell (R-Irvine), Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), Darrell Issa (R-Vista), Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) and Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley). The Transportation Corridor Agencies, which wants to build the road to relieve congestion in south Orange County, has appealed the commission's decision to the Commerce Department.

Re "Councilman Resigns Amid Conflict Probes," Dec. 23. It is reassuring to see Huntington Beach Councilman Dave Garofalo finally departing the political scene amid indefensible charges that he is guilty of betraying the public trust, so that he can "get on with my personal life." This must be the same Republican "public servant" that Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) defended so splendidly when he denounced The Times for having "no sense of decency" and of "leading a liberal lynch mob" in its coverage of his pal, then Mayor Garofalo, in August 2000.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) has unfortunately illustrated his view of innocence by virtue of cronyism again with his defense of Huntington Beach Mayor Dave Garofalo (Letters, Aug. 6). Rohrabacher attacks The Times for going after Garofalo, "implying wrongdoing but absent of any specific charge of lawbreaking." I guess conflict-of-interest laws are irrelevant, and selective memory loss on the part of Garofalo is OK. This just follows the growing list of local "Friends of Dana" who have been accused of wrongdoing, including Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach)

Putting urban runoff through sewage treatment facilities would help to clean up the ocean but would increase the system's flow tenfold and add monumental costs, a spokesman for the Orange County Sanitation District said Thursday. Already, the district will be spending $1.5 billion over the next 20 years just to maintain its facilities and treat sewage, said Blake P. Anderson, the district's assistant general manager.

Re "Rohrabacher Targets Commerce Secretary" (Oct. 5): The "Honorable" Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) should take the time to redress his own transgressions and leave the investigation of Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown to the FBI. Lest the taxpaying public forget, Rohrabacher flagrantly abused his franking privilege during last year's congressional campaign by sending 150,000 misleading, self-promotional mailers at taxpayers' expense to...

Hoping to avert what threatens to become an environmental and economic disaster, U.S. and state politicians vowed Thursday to seek federal help to find the source of a sewage leak that has plagued the city most of the summer. The source of the leak has eluded an array of high-tech sleuthing--from ground-penetrating radar to offshore sonar. With 4.

The mysterious sewage spill that has fouled Huntington Beach since early July grew by a mile Wednesday, forcing lifeguards to shoo sunbathers from the waterline near downtown and threatening merchants with an economically disastrous Labor Day weekend. Health officials and politicians joined in the search for the source of pollution that now has a 4.2-mile stretch of shoreline off-limits to swimmers and surfers. Even a psychic offered to help.
