The House of Representatives approved a $780,000 expenditure Wednesday to help restore the lake at Hansen Dam Recreation Area in the northeast San Fernando Valley. Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City) included the money in the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill of 1989, which passed the House and was sent to the Senate. If passed by the Senate, the bill must be signed by President Bush before any money can be released to the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. The lake, once a center for boating, swimming, fishing and water skiing, filled with silt and debris during floods in 1969 and 1981.

I applaud your editorial support for Rep. Howard L. Berman's proposal to allow individuals to deduct all uninsured earthquake losses suffered in the Northridge earthquake from their federal income tax returns ("Middle Class Needs Help Too," Feb. 22). I want to bring to your attention the fact that I've authored the state Senate bill 561, which will provide relief identical to the Berman bill for individuals filing state income tax returns. SB 561 also allows a carry-over to future years of 100% of excess losses.

Rep. Howard L. Berman deserves praise for his part in securing labor leader Jose Mazariego's release from a Salvadoran treasury police torture chamber (June 22). It is regrettable that most of the victims in El Salvador lack influential American supporters who can intercede to save them from torture and death. The Times quotes Berman as saying that the new Salvadoran government "is telling us that labor and other opposition groups will be harassed, that they will be threatened and that their leaders will be cruelly attacked."

Rose Castaneda, a longtime community activist and chief district aide to Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City), took the first step Monday toward running for the Los Angeles City Council seat being vacated by Ernani Bernardi in the east San Fernando Valley. Castaneda, a forceful advocate for housing project residents and former gang members, filed papers declaring that she intends to start raising funds for the April 20 primary.

"Berman Feels the Heat Over Defense Cuts" doesn't tell the whole story. Cuts in military spending release funds for work in other sectors that provide more jobs per dollar than military work. It is well documented that building such projects as mass transportation facilities, schools, health facilities--and staffing them--is much more labor intensive than high-tech military work. Moreover, such work improves everybody's standard of living rather than merely creating a stockpile of obsolescent hardware.

Beneath a wall poster proclaiming "No U.S. $$ for Death Squad Government in El Salvador," a national grass-roots group opposed to U.S. military aid to El Salvador's newly elected government founded a San Fernando Valley chapter in Van Nuys this week. Neighbor to Neighbor, which claims 300 Valley members, drew about 100 residents to its organizational meeting at First Presbyterian Church on Monday. Its primary goal is to lobby Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City), who sits on both the House Foreign Affairs and Budget committees, to help lead the fight to cut off war-related funds to El Salvador.

Rose Castaneda recalls that she was seeking emotional refuge from the violence that plagued the northeast San Fernando Valley when she first went to work for Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City) as a receptionist in 1986. She took a pay cut to leave her job as a social services director in the Van Nuys Pierce Park Apartments after attending a funeral for a young man felled by gang violence.
