The Times editorial "Off to a Good Start" (Jan. 16), in referring to pending legislation to fund needed levee repairs, is appropriately complimentary and, hopefully, points the way to resolution of water controversies. It is a welcome event to have a northern senator, Daniel E. Boatwright (D-Concord), and a southern senator, Ruben S. Ayala (D-Chino), jointly sponsor a water-related bill. It is an illustration that it is possible to arrive at a common ground between Northern California and Southern California on water matters.

Former state Sen. Ruben S. Ayala, a scrappy Democrat from Chino who fought for a controversial water project and helped create the California Conservation Corps during a legislative career that ran for 24 years until term limits forced him out, died of natural causes Wednesday in Ontario. He was 89. His death was confirmed by his son Maurice. After two decades in local government, Ayala was elected to the Senate in 1974, representing a district that encompassed the western San Bernardino County cities of Ontario, Fontana, Rialto, Colton and Chino in addition to Pomona in Los Angeles County.

Ruben S. Ayala Community Park sits on Central Avenue in Chino, five miles from the new Ruben S. Ayala High School in Chino Hills. In Rialto, there's Ayala Drive and not far away, in Bloomington, is Ayala Park. Clearly, civic recognition is not a problem for state Sen. Ruben S. Ayala (D-Chino) in his 34th District, which stretches from Pomona eastward through Chino, Ontario, Fontana, Rialto and Colton to San Bernardino.

Election-year politics have helped resurrect an anti-pornography bill that apparently had been killed several weeks ago by the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee. In late March, the Democrat-dominated panel invoked the First Amendment and dug in its heels to sidetrack a controversial bill by Assemblyman Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach) to ban the sale of sexually explicit tabloids from newspaper stands.

Senate leader David A. Roberti (D-Los Angeles) said Monday that some Democratic senators are agitating for the removal from committee chairmanships of four Democrats who voted to confirm Republican Rep. Daniel E. Lungren as state treasurer. Immediately after Lungren's narrow rejection last week by hard-core Senate Democrats, reports flashed through the Senate that dissident Democrats who favored Lungren had jeopardized their chairmanships and might lose them.

Decisions by five legislators and one congressman to retire or run for higher office have drawn a field of candidates that could trigger one of the most contentious primary election seasons of the last decade in Los Angeles County.
