SAN DIEGO -- The county Board of Supervisors voted 3 to 1 Tuesday to oppose any attempt by the state Legislature to "eliminate or restrict the use of orcas at SeaWorld . " A legislative committee last week delayed a vote on a bill that would end orca shows at SeaWorld San Diego. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), was sent out for "interim study," an ill-defined process that could last 18 months. The county board alerted the chief administrative officer to be ready to oppose any attempt to reintroduce the Bloom bill or any other bill to curtail the killer whale shows.

The citizens of the City of Santee have the right to be outraged by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors' plan to place a concentration camp-style jail for men at the heart of this community. This is much more than a "not in our back yard" issue. It is more like--not in our front yard--not in the planned future showplace of our community, and is a most certain threat to children living in homes and attending schools within brief walking distance from the planned site. The citizens of Santee are within their rights to want to protect the children and the elderly of this community from the elements such a facility would attract.

DEL MAR - In January, when he joins the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, Dave Roberts will be the only Democrat among four Republicans, the first Democrat on the board in more than two decades. He will also be the first new supervisor in 18 years. And he will be the only one who is not a graduate of San Diego State. He has three degrees from American University in Washington, D.C. He's also gay and married to a retired Air Force master sergeant. The two are adoptive parents to five former foster children, ages 4 to 17, who call them Daddy Dave and Daddy Wally.

We of the San Diego Black/Jewish Dialogue wish to commend the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for creating the Human Rights Commission, and agree with the criteria for appointment of commissioners. We would, however, like to see the supervisors go a little further and consider these additional points in selecting nominees: We feel the appointees should have a knowledge of what the field of human relations is; we believe they should be skilled in mediation, and we think an ability to cut through the rhetoric and deal directly with issues is necessary.

Residents of Santee recently had the unique pleasure of seeing our San Diego County Board of Supervisors "in action." Never before have I witnessed a ruder grouping of individuals than our board. One hundred-plus residents of Santee gave up their morning to share concerns for our overcrowded jail situation, to discuss valuable site locations and even to offer financial augmentation, only to be received with yawns, a 25-minute delay in the scheduled meeting, Supervisor Susan Golding continuously yapping on the phone and all supervisors whispering among themselves.

I noted with pleasure the recent decision of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to continue funding the Chicano Community Health Clinic and other facilities that are providing necessary health care services to our neighborhoods. The track records of those agencies are well-established, and a cut-off of financing would have been detrimental to the area residents they serve. I also noted the decision of the supervisors not to continue financing a number of agencies, the Chicano Federation and Casa Familiar among others, whose services were considered less of a priority.

An administrative law judge and a member of the Public Utilities Commission offered different recommendations Tuesday about a controversial plan by San Diego Gas & Electric Co. to shut off power to fire-prone backcountry areas during high winds. The full commission will consider the contrasting recommendations at its Sept. 10 meeting, officials said. PUC member Timothy Alan Simon proposed that the utility be allowed to shut off power, although he attached several conditions.

The key ingredient to any ultimate solution regarding San Diego's airport expansion needs, be it Lindbergh Field or another site, continues to elude us. That necessary missing component is a commitment by all of our governmental representatives to get together behind a plan. For over 25 years, one governmental entity, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors or the San Diego City Council, (usually driven by the elected officials representing Point Loma constituents living near Lindbergh Field)

The mood at the rally before the meeting was California mellow: reggae music, dancing and plenty of backcountry bonhomie. But it grew darker when several dozen supporters of Joseph Diliberti, the former Marine turned Rastafarian and tax-protester, crossed Peaceful Valley Ranch Road to attend Tuesday night's board meeting of the San Diego Rural Fire Protection District. With anger, name-calling and historic analogies, supporters called on the board to back down in its contretemps with Diliberti over a $27,552 unpaid bill for brush clearance.

San Diego County supervisors had already been weighing the issue since summer, when an injured San Diego-area man died after he was denied immediate transportation home from Mexico. But today the board plans to consider specific ways to help Americans who are seriously hurt in Mexico. One proposal is that the county could post bonds for injured Americans in Mexican custody while Mexican police investigate an incident.

The Times calls for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to assume control of the jails currently operated by the sheriff ("Time Is Ripe for Supervisors to Assume Control of Jails," Feb. 18). Nowhere, however, does The Times indicate how such a move would solve the horrendous problems associated with our local detention system. The Times, which also publishes editions in Los Angeles and Orange counties, suggests this transfer of responsibility only in San Diego. Apparently jails operated by the sheriffs of the other Southern California counties seem to be very acceptable.

In an effort to weigh public opinion on the proposed merger of San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Edison, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors tentatively decided Tuesday to place an advisory measure on the June, 1990, ballot. The results of the advisory vote, which would cost the county $30,000, would be presented to the state Public Utilities Commission, which will rule on the proposed merger, possibly by March, 1991.

I would like to take issue with the commentary on April 30 ("Protest in Wrong Place, Wrong Time") by Diane Calkins and Rosemary Shelton regarding the picket demonstration held at the San Diego Animal Control Department, of which the organization STOP (Stop Taking Our Pets) was a part. I am a board member of Friends of County Animal Shelters, a member of Fund for Animals, Animal Advocacy and STOP, to name a few. First, I believe both Ms. Calkins and Ms. Shelton were missing the thrust of the entire demonstration.

Describing what he called one of "the great events of my life," Richard T. Silberman once recounted how he and former California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. dined at Buckingham Palace: "We're just about to get out of this place and Prince Charles put his hand on my shoulder and says, 'Wouldn't it be bloody nice if he was President and I was king?' " Two weeks ago, the man who took Jerry Brown to dinner at Buckingham Palace was arrested by the FBI, charged with hatching a plan to launder money he was told came from Colombian drug runners.
