After the collapse of Orange County's investment fund, San Diego County Treasurer Paul Boland is facing sharp questions about the way he has managed a $3-billion government investment pool. After years of praise for squeezing out high returns for local governments and districts in his county, Boland finds himself defending high-risk investment practices that at first blush look a lot like those used by Orange County's discredited former treasurer, Robert L. Citron.

Despite the monthlong delay, the first payment is still due Dec. 10.

Cindy McCain's debts with the county tax collector appear to be settled. Officials said Monday a trust controlled by the multimillionaire wife of Republican presidential hopeful John McCain had initiated payment on $1,743 owed in property taxes on a condominium in the tony La Jolla Shores area. The payment, due in April, was scheduled to be in default today. "You can reasonably assume that it is paid," San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister said Monday.

In an action that could influence government finance officials statewide, the Los Angeles County treasurer announced Tuesday that his office will no longer do business with securities brokers that make political contributions to school bond campaigns. Mark J. Saladino, whose agency is one of the largest issuers of municipal bonds in California, said he adopted the policy to prevent campaign donations from influencing the hiring of underwriters by school districts, and to increase competition between dealers who often charge millions of dollars for their services.

The tax-fighting saga of Joseph Diliberti ? Vietnam veteran, Rastafarian, flutist and joyful iconoclast ? is heading to a showdown: His hilly, brushy three-acre spread deep in the backcountry is set to be sold for back taxes and penalties. But like so much of the Diliberti story, there are few, if any, historical or legal precedents to suggest what will happen next.

Two hundred school districts across California have borrowed billions of dollars using a costly and risky form of financing that has saddled them with staggering debt, according to a Times analysis. Schools and community colleges have turned increasingly to so-called capital appreciation bonds in the economic downturn, which depressed property values and made it harder for districts to raise money for new classrooms, auditoriums and sports facilities. Unlike conventional shorter-term bonds that require payments to begin immediately, this type of borrowing lets districts postpone the start of payments for decades.

Orange County supervisors, blindsided this week by a slew of subpoenas from the Securities and Exchange Commission, struck back at the federal agency Friday, charging that the SEC could have prevented the county's financial debacle. Some board members questioned why the SEC failed to step in last spring, after questioning the county's treasurer. And they are angry that the agency refused to freeze the county's investment fund earlier this month before the county was forced into bankruptcy.

This could be a watershed year of sorts in Orange County's congressional races. The county hasn't had a Democrat in Congress for nearly a decade, and pundits aren't predicting a breakthrough this year because of a big GOP voter registration advantage in most districts. But local voters could help elect the first Korean-American to Congress if Diamond Bar's Jay C. Kim, a Republican, is victorious in the 41st District.
