A screenwriter-turned-novice-politician, Rick Pamplin of Palmdale can imagine himself starring in his own real-life drama: "Mr. Pamplin Goes to Washington." "I truly believe we have a shot, and it's going to be a major upset," Pamplin, 38, said Sunday, two days after winning a place on the November ballot as an independent candidate in California's new 25th Congressional District.

I'd like to publicly congratulate Congressman-elect Buck McKeon on his general election victory and also thank the Los Angeles Times for its fair and unbiased coverage of the campaign. I'd also like to thank reporter Jack Cheevers for his professionalism and accuracy. In a difficult and ever-changing political year, The Times provided its readers with a very valuable service. As a former award-winning journalist, I acknowledge your efforts and applaud them. I also hope your readers appreciate the accomplishments of your editorial staff as well.

I would like to thank the Los Angeles Times, especially the Valley Edition, for your fair and unbiased coverage of my successful grass-roots petition drive for a spot on the November ballot as an independent congressional candidate in the 25th District. I'd also like to thank the 50 or so volunteers who carried petitions in 100-degree heat, the 12,241 individuals who signed my petitions, and the numerous store managers who allowed us to approach their customers and exercise our right to petition our government for change.

After reading Jones' and Rick Pamplin's Counterpunches, I have come to the conclusion that, for working writers, they have too much time on their hands. As do I, for that matter, but I happen to be an unemployed writer, so I have an excuse.

We are most distressed to read about the difficulties Sylvester Stallone's new film, "Over the Top" has encountered in getting permission to film on a Southern California freeway. It seems unbelievable that the authorities would prevent the world's biggest box-office star and a major motion picture company from filming on a public freeway due to the complaints of some shortsighted local residents. It is especially discouraging when headlines bemoan runaway production as a major problem for California and the motion picture and television industries.

Independent congressional candidate Rick Pamplin on Thursday challenged his Republican opponent's self-description as a "small business owner" on the November ballot, but state officials said the deadline had passed for such complaints. Pamplin called on GOP nominee Howard P. (Buck) McKeon to "come clean with the voters and explain" that he co-owns 50 retail clothing stores and is board chairman of Valencia National Bank. "He is a banker and a corporate executive--period," Pamplin said. "Mr.

Democratic Party activists in the Santa Clarita Valley have protested the appointment of Republican congressional contender Howard P. (Buck) McKeon as grand marshal of a local "frontier days" parade. McKeon, a banker and clothing retailer, is scheduled to ride in a convertible at the head of the parade sponsored by the Canyon Country Chamber of Commerce. The annual event, set for Saturday, typically draws 2,000 to 3,000 spectators.

On a recent trip to Washington, Republican congressional candidate Howard P. (Buck) McKeon of Santa Clarita met with an elite group he believes he will soon join: GOP congressmen from California. No politician ever wants to say he has an election in the bag.
