Two days before a City Council hearing on alleged financial improprieties in the Los Angeles redevelopment agency, Mayor Richard Riordan said Wednesday he fully supports agency administrator Jerry Scharlin's handling of the controversy, including the hiring of a private detective firm. At the same time, Scharlin sent a lengthy memo to the Community Redevelopment Agency staff on Wednesday, offering reassurance that private investigators did not violate any employees' civil liberties.

Eleven years ago, Robin Kramer and I were part of a delegation that accompanied then-Mayor Richard Riordan on a trip through the Far East, she as his chief of staff, I as a reporter. One afternoon, we were stuck in a conference room in Beijing, surrounded by a cluster of scrambling mayoral aides and business people. They were frenetically preparing for a meeting, but nevertheless found the time to fret about a story of mine in that day's paper. In it, I recounted how the mayor had muffed the introduction of a Chinese official the night before.

Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan will have trouble delivering on two of his campaign promises, after a City Council vote Monday preserving the full-time Board of Public Works and the council's threat to reduce funding for the Hope in Youth anti-gang program. The action came on the first day of deliberations on Riordan's $4.3-billion spending package. Several more amendments are expected today.

A. Jerrold Perenchio, the Los Angeles billionaire who heads the nation's largest Spanish-language television network, has become the biggest contributor in the California governor's race, donating $1.3 million to three candidates. Perenchio's extraordinary largess--he has given $625,000 to Democrat Gray Davis in this race, along with $500,000 to Republican Richard Riordan and $205,000 to Republican Bill Jones--not only distinguishes him in the gubernatorial campaign.

Despite a burst of hiring that has expanded the Los Angeles Police Department by 900 officers in two years, a newly completed deployment report shows that fewer than 300 have been put to work so far protecting city streets and that the uniformed patrol force has grown by just 27--a record that Mayor Richard Riordan on Wednesday said was troubling and inadequate.

Capistrano Valley got off most of the shots, but Brea Olinda made the one that counted as the Wildcats won a boys' soccer game, 1-0, Wednesday at Capistrano Valley. Brea Olinda was outshot, 17-5, and Capistrano Valley controlled the ball for most of the game. But Daniel Benigno, a Brea Olinda midfielder, got open on a breakaway midway through the first half and scored the game's only goal.

Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan said Tuesday that a proposed $2.2-billion subway line across the San Fernando Valley is too expensive and should be replaced by a cheaper alternative, such as a surface light-rail line. Riordan, who had previously supported the subway, said he will ask transit officials to consider alternatives in an effort to keep a mass-transit option alive for the Valley.

We are writing to comment on Bill Boyarsky's column regarding the county's management of Marina del Rey (April 22). We have worked on various matters concerning the Marina for the past three years. For the last 20 months, we have each been intensely involved in completing the Parcel 18 lease extension, which the Board of Supervisors approved (April 22). During this entire time, neither of us has ever been asked by any supervisor, or any member of his or her staff, to compromise the county's position in any way, and none discussed any of the terms of the extension with us while it was being negotiated.

The Los Angeles police union extended voting on the city's contract offer until Friday in an effort to increase officer participation. Ballots will be available during the day Friday at the Police Protective League headquarters at 600 E. 8th Street for officers who were not able to attend the 11 ratification sessions scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and today. So far, roughly a third of the 7,000 LAPD officers have cast ballots, officials said.
