Re "Senate Panel Didn't OK Polanco Settlement," March 25: I'm having difficulty believing some of state Sen. Richard Polanco's former and current colleagues about not having knowledge of a settlement worth over $117,200 to a former aide to Polanco, in 1998, for workplace abuses. Since 1993, workplace settlements in the state Senate have been approximately $160,000. How can they be taken seriously or honestly on future issues with regard to taxpayer money if they don't do something about Polanco now?

The Oxnard Planning Commission has rejected Southern California Edison's plan to build a state-mandated mini power plant at Mandalay Beach. The commission voted 5 to 2 Thursday night against Edison's proposal to build a $50-million natural gas-powered plant next to a larger existing generating station along the city's coastline. State Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey directed Edison in August to produce an additional 250 megawatts of power by this summer to avoid shortages.

Oxnard city staffers want to pull the plug on a plan to build a mini power plant by the ocean. In their critical report, city staffers said the proposed $50-million facility at Mandalay Beach would do nothing to improve coastal access and add an 80-foot smokestack that intrudes on Oxnard Airport flight paths.

If there is any lasting truth about the 25-year controversy surrounding El Mercado de Los Angeles marketplace in Boyle Heights, it is this: No solution is as simple as it appears. Roughly 20 outdoor vendors, who had operated illegally at the Eastside market for years, had been told by Councilman Nick Pacheco that they could return this weekend to the El Mercado parking lot at 1st and Lorena streets. They had agreed to quit selling in the lot last November until a compromise could be reached.

Election season officially opened Friday, with dozens of candidates filing papers for council and mayoral races throughout Ventura County. In Thousand Oaks, the candidacy of environmental lawyer Ed Masry, portrayed in the Julia Roberts movie "Erin Brockovich," will bring a touch of Hollywood to a town known for its divisive politics. "This is the first time I've run for a political election," Masry said this week.

A slow-growth incumbent and a millionaire attorney allied with her had the early edge for two council seats in Thousand Oaks, while Oxnard voters appeared to be settling into another term with familiar faces, according to early election returns Tuesday. Meanwhile, a ballot measure that has split Santa Paula over the issue of growth was also producing mixed results in early balloting, with the initiative slightly ahead.

Among the council races, the real-life boss of Erin Brockovich is campaigning for his first stint in politics. In all, 53 candidates are vying for 21 council and mayoral seats, according to city clerks and the county elections office.
