I was appalled by reporter Doug Smith's interview of Ross Hopkins (May 25). The article reads like a press release rather than an interview and omits several important issues while leading the reader on with half-truths and outright lies. One lie is the statement that "the last obstacle" in negotiations to sublease 49 acres beside Lake Balboa from the Recreation and Parks Department is the final environmental impact report. This implies that no obstacles will be found within the document itself.

Because I had to meet with my house painters and then run off to my 7:30 a.m. YMCA board of directors meeting before going into my office, I did not get a chance to read The Times until 2 p.m. over lunch at my desk. While reading Ross Hopkins' comments, I was surprised to learn that the various bumper stickers, thank-you letters and other political paraphernalia in my office all were received because my husband is so politically active. Contrary to Hopkins' beliefs, women in the San Fernando Valley do contribute to political campaigns, we do sit on boards (some that meet morning, noon and night)

Contrary to Ross Hopkins' Aug. 20 letter, the bottle recycling problem has not been solved by curbside recycling. Nearly no apartment buildings in Los Angeles recycle. Recycling centers and a new deposit on bottles are both needed. SAUL DAVIS Studio City

Your Aug. 16 editorial supporting the bottle bill expansion missed the key point of recycling. Curbside recycling has replaced recycling centers as the most efficient and convenient way to recycle. The bottles and cans proposed for the new tax are already being recycled through curbside recycling. This new bottle bill won't increase recycling, it will just tax more consumers.

Bob Larkin, former chairman of the Ventura County Republican Party, will officially kick off his campaign for the Assembly with a barbecue fund-raiser in Simi Valley on Sunday. Larkin is running for the 38th Assembly District seat being vacated by Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills), who is being forced to step down next year because of legislative term limits. Boland's district includes Simi Valley, Fillmore and portions of the northwest San Fernando Valley.

Recently I had the privilege of interviewing candidates for the 38th Assembly District for an organization to which I belong. Those interviewed included a Republican (Ross Hopkins), two Democrats (David Ross and Jon M. Lauritzen) and a Natural Law candidate (Virginia Neuman). I was most impressed by the quality of the people who have chosen to run. They gave thoughtful replies to our questions, although they didn't always agree with our positions. I may be naive, but my dilemma is not "choosing the lessor of evils" but realizing that only one can be elected.
