The true spirit of the Christmas season was felt and appreciated by thousands of clients of the Department of Social Services through the generosity of San Diego County individuals, businesses, employee groups, churches, military and civic organizations. Without the community's support and thoughtfulness, many of the families would have had a bleak Christmas. It was especially gratifying to see people of ordinary and extraordinary means so generously share what they have with people temporarily unable to provide for all of their own needs.

There is abundant reason for General Services Department chief Randall C. Bacon, as head of one of the city's largest and most beleaguered departments, to be spending lots of time in the office these days. But attendance records show that the official was absent one of every four workdays last year. The hours registered as sick leave equaled about six weeks. Under city policy, employees must explain frequent sick leaves.

Former MTA head Franklin White is out the door; Police Chief Willie Williams has been knocked to his knees; and it looks like I'm scheduled to be next. I have been the subject of three recent articles and an editorial in The Times designed to smear and malign my name and reputation under the guise of a concerned public. This is another despicable example of the cavalier manner in which the press deals with African Americans in high-level positions, without regard to their professional or community status.

In its strongest response yet to last December's fatal accident between a city trash truck and a school bus, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to immediately stop purchasing any new trucks or parts because of disclosures in The Times that the city funneled millions of dollars to the manufacturer despite repeated warnings about the vehicles' reliability.
