It was the biggest drug bust in the history of Newport Beach. On Jan. 21, 1985, police spotted the Sea Dolphin, a 45-foot sailboat, docked in violation of a 20-minute mooring limit at the city's M Street dock. They went aboard to issue a citation, and crew members could not produce registration papers. When the police thought they smelled marijuana, the boat was searched and nearly 6 tons of the stuff were confiscated. Six months later, Harbor Municipal Judge Russell A.

While television may excite us with its pictures, Leslie Powell ("Still Moving Means Still Alive," Op-Ed, Nov. 23) proves the written word can still evoke the most powerful images. I have read and viewed many news stories from the local newspapers to the network news on the subject of today's poor and homeless. Some depicted people suffering far greater deprivation than those Powell profiled. None came close to bringing home the full force of their plight as did this article. RUSSELL A.

A Superior Court judge today refused to overturn a lower court decision denying bail to Dr. Thomas A. Gionis, who is accused of masterminding an attack on his ex-wife, Aissa Wayne, and her companion last October. Gionis' attorney, Marshall M. Schulman, called the court bail refusal "outrageous" and accused the district attorney's office of making the prosecution a "political case" because Aissa Wayne is the daughter of the late John Wayne. Gionis, 35, a wealthy orthopedic surgeon, is accused of hiring a private investigator, O. Daniel Gal, and two other men to rough up Wayne and her companion, financier Roger Luby, at Luby's Newport Beach estate on Oct. 3. Gal was arrested in Switzerland earlier this week.

A second defendant was ordered Friday to stand trial for an assault last year on John Wayne's daughter, Aissa, and financier Roger W. Luby. Municipal Judge Russell A. Bostrom ordered a trial for Jerrel L. Hintergardt, 37, of Burbank, who is accused of participating in the Oct. 3, 1988, attack in which Wayne was beaten and Luby suffered a severed Achilles' tendon. If convicted, Hintergardt could be sentenced to 11 years in prison. Hintergardt joins Pomona orthopedic surgeon Thomas A. Gionis, 35, Wayne's former husband, who was ordered last month to stand trial in the attack.
