Five candidates for Los Angeles' 5th City Council District called Friday for Police Chief Bernard C. Parks to be replaced as part of an effort to restore the credibility of the department. Other candidates, including former state Sen. Tom Hayden and former federal prosecutor Jack Weiss, also criticized the chief but did not call for his replacement.

If state Sen. Tom Hayden is really serious about testing older drivers to determine if they are still safe on the road (May 3), he would add to his measure, SB 335, a test of peripheral vision, which is an ability that declines with advancing age and one that is very important to have to drive safely.

Re "Hayden Takes Heat for Turning Down City's Match," Political Briefing, Jan. 18. [Former state] Sen. Tom Hayden has again adhered to his true ideals of "free speech" he so eloquently supported in the ivory tower institutions of the 1960s. In the article, he mentioned his intention not to accept city matching funds for his candidacy for the Los Angeles City Council. Of course, he would like to continue to have his "free speech" announced from the position of power and money that has helped him so much in the past.

At a time when Los Angeles desperately needs restoring, do we have to have the Playa Vista project? Who, besides the vested interests, wants it? Many thanks to state Sen. Tom Hayden for being the first elected official to criticize this boondoggle (Times, Dec. 13). May he not be the last. HARRY GARLAND Venice

Re "LAPD Can't Pull Fast One on This Veteran Agitator," June 8: Blazes! George Skelton praises state Sen. Tom Hayden for uncovering the Los Angeles Police Department's nefarious plot to acquire pepper spray and launchers [to fire pepper balls]! I trust that both parties will now forgo criticizing officers who use deadly force because less-than-lethal equipment is unavailable.

Your political column suggests "a case of amnesia," because state Sen. Tom Hayden asked for some greening of a few miles of the Ventura Freeway (Feb. 11). I think this is a cheap shot. You distract from the valid point that Sen. Hayden is making, that the current administration mismanaged by spending too little on earthquake retrofitting, not that too much was spent on freeway landscaping. JOHN FLEISCHER Burbank

I have read with great interest of the unfortunate death of Brandi Mitock at the hand of a 96-year-old driver and that the bill introduced by state Sen. Tom Hayden to require testing of drivers 75 and older has been met with some resistance. I refer to the article written by Jules Draznin (Voices, May 22) opposing such legislation. What planet are the AARP and Draznin on? The intent of the proposed law is that such persons who pass the more stringent testing will be allowed to keep their licenses, and those who don't will not. I see no discrimination.

As a student at Van Ness Elementary School in the mid 1920s, my father and all his classmates were taught a little song to sing to their parents to encourage them to vote for a school bond similar to the one now facing voters in the upcoming April 8 election that will upgrade and modernize deteriorating classrooms in Los Angeles. He called me from his home in Palm Springs and suggested that Mayor Richard Riordan, state Sen. Tom Hayden and the school board teach the same song to students today to motivate their parents to support Proposition BB (Feb.

Reading a Sept. 13 letter with sarcastic references to state Sen. Tom Hayden prompts me to answer. No one can deny that writer the right to his opinion, but has he taken the time to review Hayden's record? I think Hayden's integrity, intelligence and honesty of purpose would be seen as far above too many who claim to represent "the people." ROSE ROBYN Los Angeles

Setting the stage for a battle between environmentalists and Orange County toll-road backers, a state Senate committee Tuesday approved a bill that would ban new construction or widening of roads in state parks. The bill, passed on a 5-2 vote, would block the route preferred by local officials for the 16-mile Foothill South, the final link in the county's long-planned 67-mile toll-road system. The $644-million road would bisect San Onofre State Beach, which draws more than 1.

Opponents of Los Angeles International Airport's proposed expansion Friday denounced Mayor Richard Riordan and his recent favorable comments about the project, a massive and costly undertaking that the mayor argues is needed to prepare the city to compete for international trade in the coming century.

It was a quintessential Los Angeles moment. While ducks gamboled beneath graffiti in a concrete channel of the Los Angeles River and a Metrolink train passed overhead, two press conferences, designed to make the opposite points, took place Wednesday within 50 feet of each other.
