Re "A Retiree Trying to Save His Life's Work," May 30: Bob Ball is a recognized expert on our Social Security system. He also abhors the Bush administration's current recommendations for individual investment accounts and suggested "lowering" of benefits. Why won't the White House listen to Ball? The reason is obvious. Ball is an expert in his field and is not a yes man. The White House must have the opposite. Roy H. Richardson Huntington Beach

Re "Hearings Planned on Whether to Establish Police Commission," Dec. 21: At the [Huntington Beach City] Council meeting on Nov. 18, Councilman Dave Sullivan announced his intentions of establishing a police commission. His proposed purpose was to investigate allegations against the police, most centering on the enforcement of the zero-tolerance ordinance established to prevent a repeat of the July 4 rioting. Apparently, Sullivan had forgotten that the city's zero-tolerance ordinance was reviewed by the city attorney and had been approved by the City Council.

About 40 years ago, he was a football quarterback, calling signals for UC Berkeley's Golden Bears. Today Roy H. Richardson is a quarterback of a different sort: the new chairman of the city's Planning Commission. He took over that position last month, and even though vast problems face the city, Richardson is upbeat and optimistic. Looking over the downtown redevelopment area recently, Richardson said: "This is going to be a heck of a nice city when everything is finished."

The fate of a condominium and commercial project proposed for the heart of downtown is in limbo, the City Council said this week, because redevelopment funds are not available. Assistant City Administrator Ray Silver said at a meeting of the Redevelopment Agency that the project "doesn't pencil out" financially. Silver said the downtown project is now estimated to cost the Redevelopment Agency $2.2 million more than anticipated.

One candidate has raised nearly $50,000 to win one of four seats on the City Council in Tuesday's election. Others plan on raising nothing or spending as little as possible. Compared to past council races when candidates raised upward of $80,000, campaign fund raising and spending is down this year. Some of the 22 candidates have refused to accept financial contributions. A few are amassing political war chests of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
