Michael Ramirez (editorial cartoon, Aug. 2) seems to be making the unfounded generalization that everything produced on MTV during the last 20 years has been trash. One might even infer that this little ditty is supposed to imply that MTV shouldn't enjoy 1st Amendment rights . . . but I'll give Ramirez the benefit of the doubt this time around. However, he might want to make a mental note to go check out his television set's remote control. I'm sure he'll find that if he doesn't want to view an undesired channel, then there's usually a very simple way for him to delete it from the channel rotation so it won't show up on his TV screen.

Did you read about the disappearance of the UCLA band's instruments during a flag football game against USC's musicians? Something like this always seems to happen the week before the real USC-UCLA football game. Over the years, the cross-city rivalry has inspired bogus versions of each other's newspapers, fake fliers announcing the cancellation of pregame rallies, the kidnapping of mascots (such as USC's late canine, George Tirebiter) and the splashing of paint on campus symbols.

Councilman Ron Bates, who was first elected in 1988, announced this week that he will run for a third term in the November election. Bates, 50, obtained nomination papers from the city clerk's office and intends to file by the Aug. 9 deadline. "One of my goals is to try to bring financial stability to local governments," Bates said Wednesday. "The state is taking so many millions of dollars away from cities. We need to come up with a plan on what cities can do to survive."

Candidates may begin filing today to run for the two City Council seats open this year. Mayor Charles Sylvia will not seek reelection this year, wishing to honor the principle of the city's term limits law, approved by voters in 1996. Sylvia has served seven terms on the council since 1975. Councilman Ron Bates has said he will seek reelection but that this would be his last term. Both Sylvia and Bates are eligible for three more terms. The deadline to file is Aug. 11.

After narrowing the list of applicants from 110 to five, Buena Park officials will soon decide on a permanent city manager. Planning director Pat Brown has been serving in both his position and that of acting city manager since December, 1984, when former manager Ron Bates left to become assistant city manager in Anaheim. Brown is one of the five candidates for the position, said Sue Williams, acting administrative assistant to the city manager.
OPINION
May 18, 1997
Your May 9 editorial, "Localities See Some Hope for Justice on Property Taxes," was right on target. For too long California's cities have been unable to provide municipal services because property tax dollars were shifted away from cities and counties as part of the 1992-93 and 1993-94 state budgets. Cities alone have lost over $2 billion in general property tax revenue over the past six years. As a result, cities have been unable to provide additional police and fire personnel, open closed libraries, or maintain or build new parks and recreation centers that our children and senior citizens depend on. The members of the League of California Cities will fight to assure that SB 880, AB 95 and ACA 4, which will restore essential funding to local governments, are passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor.

City officials are opposing a move by the county to create its own transportation planning authority. Currently, the Southern California Assn. of Governments oversees transportation planning in Orange County as well as Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, San Bernardino and Imperial counties. Under a proposal approved by the Board of Supervisors last month, the Orange County Transportation Authority would take over the local planning responsibility.
