In the first step toward a possible 1992 race for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, San Diego City Councilwoman Judy McCarty filed papers Friday indicating her intention to seek the supervisorial seat now held by Susan Golding.

A San Diego County supervisor whose district includes Camp Pendleton has asked President Bush to award a medal for bravery to the Marine being investigated for shooting a wounded insurgent at a mosque during the battle for the Iraqi city of Fallouja. "Anything less undermines the morale of all our troops," wrote Supervisor Bill Horn, who saw combat with the Marines in Vietnam. "He should be commended for saving the lives of his fellow Marines."

Sheriff John Duffy, who opened a secret bank account for drug forfeiture money two months ago to bypass restrictions set by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, cannot touch the nearly $700,000 in estimated deposits he has accrued, a Superior Court judge ruled Friday. Judge Harrison Hollywood also ruled that the county cannot place the money in its treasury--as it had hoped--before a Nov. 27 court hearing to determine who legally controls the funds.

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.

After months of searching for someone to run the nation's largest county government, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors settled Tuesday on David E. Janssen, a politically savvy bureaucrat with experience dealing with tough economic times. Janssen's generally positive reviews as chief administrative officer of San Diego County, his open style of leadership and his close political connections in Sacramento were key factors in his selection for the post, supervisors said.

The county Board of Supervisors endorsed a growth plan for unincorporated areas. The update of the county's general plan, which guides long-term development, has been fiercely debated for five years and Wednesday's unanimous approval was not the final vote. The full update, which will guide policy through 2020, isn't expected until 2005. Wednesday's vote signaled that supervisors "support the direction" of the study and want staff to continue working on it.

Angered that San Diego County Sheriff John Duffy set up a secret account for money seized in drug raids, the Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday to file a lawsuit to regain control of the money. The civil lawsuit is expected to be filed today in San Diego Superior Court. The board reached a consensus in closed session to go to court over the matter, which has further soured the already strained relationship between supervisors and the sheriff, who is retiring from office.

County supervisors in Los Angeles and San Diego took opposite sides Tuesday in the long-running fight over the plan to store low-level radioactive waste at Ward Valley in the Mojave Desert. After hearing pointed arguments, Los Angeles County supervisors voted 3 to 2 to go on record against the proposed dump site because of the lack of assurances that the site "will not contaminate the county's critical water supply" from the Colorado River.
