The letter by Pacific Enterprises Chief Executive Paul A. Miller ("Southern California Gas Co. Is Proud of Stock Ownership Plan for Workers," April 23) responding to Bernstein's labor column concluded that Sam Weinstein was "less qualified than other nominees for the board." I am not an employee of Southern California Gas or Pacific Enterprises, but I am a shareholder and I know Weinstein. Weinstein has worked for the gas company. In my opinion, this is an incredibly valuable qualification for a person who wants to serve on the board of directors that governs the nation's largest gas company.

When a leader of the union that represents 6,000 Southern California Gas Co. workers narrowly missed getting elected to the board of the gas company's parent corporation last year, he was sure that he would succeed the next time around. "There isn't going to be a problem for us to come back next year and win," boasted Sam Weinstein, Western regional director of the Utility Workers of America union, after receiving more than 80% of the stockholder votes necessary to win a board seat.

Regarding the letter from Pacific Enterprises Chief Executive Paul A. Miller ("Southern California Gas Co. Is Proud of Stock Ownership Plan for Workers," April 23): Miller's response to Harry Bernstein's April 18 column ("Utility Resists Adding Union Official to Firm's Directors") is a masterpiece of misleading information. He claims that I have been offered the shareholders list in the drive to get representation for the thousands of shareholders (many of them unions workers at Southern California Gas)

A group of Pacific Enterprises workers apparently failed to elect one of their union officials to one of 15 board positions of the parent company of Southern California Gas on Thursday, but the union refused to concede the hotly contested proxy fight. Although a count of the ballots may not be complete until sometime today, Paul A. Miller, Pacific Enterprises chairman and chief executive, told stockholders at the annual meeting, "It appears certain that each of the (15) incumbent directors has been elected."

Executives of Pacific Enterprises, parent of Southern California Gas Co., act as if they created a monster when they set up a stock ownership plan for the gas company's employees. The executives apparently have been frightened and angered by a serious campaign among the worker/shareholders to elect just one union official to Pacific Enterprises' 15-member board of directors. The company hired Georgeson & Co.--at a cost of $60,000--to wage a proxy fight against the workers' candidate.

In the wood-paneled Downtown Club, the Vidocq Society is having lunch. The setting is elegant, the topic anything but. This group of present and former law enforcement sleuths is trying to find a way to identify a dead boy found 41 years ago in a box. A police officer and a local newspaper reporter pause between bites of chicken and steamed vegetables to lay out what's known. When the body was found off a rural road, investigators back in 1957 noted some strange details.

Shareholders of Pacific Enterprises voted Thursday to change the way they elect directors, virtually dooming any chance a maverick shareholder and union representative might have of succeeding in his second run at the board of the Los Angeles company, which owns Southern California Gas and Thrifty Corp.

The 75 to 100 homeless people who live in West Hollywood's two parks may be trading their nights under the stars for cots, blankets and hot coffee thanks to a new city plan to close the parks at midnight and open a temporary shelter. Responding to complaints about increased crime and unsanitary conditions, the West Hollywood City Council on Monday voted to close West Hollywood and Plummer parks from midnight until 6 a.m. to keep people from sleeping there overnight.

The homeowners at the Tobias Chateaux condominiums in Panorama City, in the midst of suing the developer for what they say is shoddy construction, thought things couldn't get much worse. But things did get worse this week, thanks to the weather and the city bureaucracy. As a historic deluge was flooding their garages and forcing water through cracks around their windows, the homeowners also were being notified by the Los Angeles Building Department that their 2-year-old homes are defective.

Often praised for being sensitive to the plight of homeless people, the West Hollywood City Council on Monday was sharply criticized after approving new park regulations that the homeless say discriminate against them. In a unanimous vote, the five-member council outlawed such things as erecting tents, hanging clothes and blankets on walls and shrubs and using drinking fountains for "other than (their) intended purpose."
