For 30 years, the Workers Compensation Appeals Board has had an office in Ventura for the adjudication of work injuries. It is well situated with adequate parking, proximity to the government center, freeway and public transportation. It is also in, and next to, the largest and fourth-largest cities in Ventura County. The state has recently remodeled the building and has, within the last month, installed up-to-date computers with dedicated electrical outlets and wiring. It is a model office, especially when compared to other regional officers such as Van Nuys were overcrowded conditions make it unbearable.

It's a good thing Operation Desert Storm happened when it did. The U.N. nuclear inspection team in Iraq has now verified that Iraq's nuclear weapons program was far more advanced than we had thought. Saddam Hussein was less than a year away from having an atomic bomb. I recall state Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) saying during the Gulf War debate that if he were in Congress, he would not have supported Desert Storm at that time because he wanted to wait longer for sanctions to work.

Is California once again to be held up for ridicule before the entire world? The California Bicentennial Commission (Metro, Aug. 24) on the U.S. Constitution doesn't need a zoo; it is creating a circus and they are the clowns. Bison tennial Ben indeed! What an insult to poor old Ben Franklin and to the citizens of California. It is not necessary to trivialize our heritage in order to celebrate it. Please, Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara), resume the fight to stop all funding for the commission.

Gov. George Deukmejian said Thursday that he would not ask the chairwoman of the California State University trustees to resign, although she made a "bad mistake" by misrepresenting her educational background. In a press conference here, Deukmejian said Huntington Beach resident Marianthi K. Lansdale has apologized to him for claiming a community college degree she did not have when the governor first nominated her to the prestigious CSU Board of Trustees nearly four years ago. The claim was also forwarded to the state Senate, which confirmed her nomination for a term that expires in March, 1993.

The Times is right to oppose Proposition 96, a well-intended but unnecessary and deficient AIDS measure. If adopted, Proposition 96 would contradict strong, bipartisan legislation passed unanimously and recently signed into law by the governor that mandates AIDS testing of certain persons who commit sexual assaults or assaults on law enforcement officers. But The Times is wrong to blame legislative delay and ineffectiveness for this measure. Block sponsored Proposition 96 because at the very end of last year's session the Legislature chose to defer action on a bill that he supported which embraced the provisions of Proposition 96. Instead, we decided to consider that bill this year in conjunction with all other proposals on AIDS.

But under voter-approved Proposition 103, the post will become an elective office starting next year and take on vast new regulatory powers. Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara)

The Senate voted 33 to 1 Thursday to approve a bill that would give it power to remove any public appointee who falsifies qualifications during confirmation hearings. The bill was introduced by Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) after The Times revealed in December that California State University Chairwoman Marianthi Lansdale of Huntington Beach falsely claimed during her nomination process to have earned an associate of arts degree in 1959 from Long Beach City College.
