It's no wonder that, in more than 30 years of politicking in Orange County, Shirley Grindle and Randy Smith have never agreed on much. After all, he's a lobbyist and she's a watchdog who has made it her life's work to make sure people like Smith can't influence the political process. So when Grindle and Smith recently paired up to soften the outright ban on gifts to county officials that she had drawn up years ago, few could believe it.

Got a second? That's about all the time you'll need for the Clippers to tell you everything they know about their franchise forebears, the Buffalo Braves. “Well, they're from Buffalo,” Grant Hill says after a long pause. “And I know that Buffalo's really cold.” Among the things the Clippers don't know is that, for a three-season stretch in the mid-1970s, Buffalo was also really good, averaging 46 wins and reaching the NBA's Eastern Conference semifinals three years running.

Randy Smith, an All-Star basketball player in the 1970s with the Buffalo Braves -- the precursor to the Clippers -- who once held the NBA record for consecutive games played and remains the Clippers' franchise leader in several statistical categories, died Thursday at a hospital in Norwich, Conn. He was 60. He had a heart attack while exercising on a treadmill at the Connecticut casino complex where he worked, son-in-law Lekan Bashua told the Associated Press on Friday.

You seem to be intent on smearing each and every Orange County public official by your innuendoes. Your story, "Disney Showers Gifts on Anaheim Officials," (June 27) failed to disclose any gifts or contributions that seemed improperly large. And all contributions appeared to be legal and reported. So what is the story? Just more Orange County bashing by The Times. RANDY SMITH, Yorba Linda

Your editorial regarding partisanship in the selection of the public member for the Orange County Transportation Commission (OCTC) missed the mark. People might cite any number of reasons for recommending a particular candidate. And since Orange County is overwhelmingly Republican, being a Republican is no sin. I believe the commissioners selected Dana Reed because of his outstanding qualifications, and you do a disservice to them to suggest otherwise. RANDY SMITH Yorba Linda

Orange County suffered a great loss last week with the passing of county Clerk-Recorder Gary Granville. For over 30 years, as a journalist, professor, political aide and officeholder, Gary's presence was felt. He cared a great deal for Orange County and truly believed in public service. We will miss Gary greatly. Randy Smith Yorba Linda Some years ago, while attending Cal State Fullerton, I took a journalism class from Gary Granville. He stands out in my memory as a wonderful instructor who took genuine interest in his students.

Galloping out of the desert on his Arabian steed, a movie stagehand grabbed a garden hose and fought a fire at a neighbor's house Monday, saving the man's life, county fire officials said. Firefighters airlifted the victim, 41-year-old Brian Parker, to Antelope Valley Hospital, where a respirator was helping him breathe. Hospital officials listed his condition as critical.

Regarding "Newport Chief's Conduct Is Coming Under Scrutiny" (Nov. 7): Being a public official, Police Chief Arb Campbell cannot escape the media attention generated by the mutiny going on in his department currently. But how in the world do you justify dragging Bill Voit into this labor dispute? I have known Bill for more than 20 years and am proud to call him a friend. All of the behavior you describe with regard to generosity toward his friends is totally consistent with the Bill Voit I know.

You know it isn't much of a fight when there is more action at the weigh-in than there is in the ring. That was the case Wednesday night at the Forum where Michael Nunn thoroughly dominated Randy Smith in winning every round on every card to gain a unanimous decision in their 10-round match. But that didn't stop the crowd of 3,995 from showering the ring with boos in a match that looked more like Michael Nunn against a human punching bag. It was pretty much a standoff.
