In the first meeting of its kind, all 17 San Diego-area Indian tribes sat down Wednesday with the county Board of Supervisors to discuss the environmental and economic effects of a major expansion in tribal gambling. The proposed addition of nine casinos in a county of about 4,200 square miles has many officials and residents concerned that serious environmental and infrastructure problems will not be handled in a way that is fair to both the tribes and nontribal residents.

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.

These are not the best of times for San Diego County Sheriff Jim Roache. Elected in 1990 as a reformer after 20 years of ironfisted rule by his predecessor, Roache has endured continual controversy over personnel decisions, an embarrassing no-confidence vote by the Deputy Sheriffs Assn., media criticism over his management style, and sniping by an in-house publication called Silver Star.

Former San Diego County Registrar of Voters Ray Ortiz was acquitted Thursday by a Superior Court jury here on 27 counts of grand theft, misappropriation of public funds and falsifying public records. The acquittal was a dramatic ending to what Ortiz called "a year of hell" that cost him more than $100,000 in legal fees and lost income. A co-defendant, Escondido elections consultant Lance Gough, also was found innocent of a single theft charge.

After 53 days of testimony, a mistrial was declared Tuesday in the federal mail fraud case against two former high-ranking San Diego County officials and three telecommunications executives. "We can't unring the bell," said U.S. District Judge Earl B. Gilliam in making the ruling, explaining that grand jury indictments and trial testimony included prejudicial material against the defendants that, under a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, he would not have allowed.

Little more than a year ago, political consultant Nick Johnson half-jokingly described San Diego elections as being "usually about as unpredictable as elections in Russia." "If you're an incumbent here, it's like being on the Communist Party ticket in Russia or East Germany," the Democratic consultant said. "You're that safe." Today, Johnson's comparison is perhaps even more apt than when he made it, though for reasons he scarcely could have imagined.
