Buoyed by an upturn in the economy, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Monday approved a budget for next fiscal year that slightly boosts spending on health and public safety. The Department of Health Services and the Sheriff's Department, two agencies battered by budget cuts in recent years, were the biggest winners as supervisors approved a $17.3-billion plan that is $185 million higher than the current budget. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky persuaded his colleagues to earmark $7.

The three candidates vying to unseat Los Angeles County Sheriff Sherman Block continued to criticize his leadership Monday and called for a break from the status quo. "There's a decided need for change," Bill Baker, former chief of the sheriff's detective bureau, told 35 people attending a League of Women Prosecutors forum in Los Angeles. "There's an urgent need for change in what [the media] have described as a downward slide of the Sheriff's Department."

For years, Orange County may have been paying duplicate fees to cover administration of health and other benefit plans for sheriff's deputies, according to a review of payroll records by the Orange County auditor. Under its labor contract with the Assn. of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs, the county pays the union to administer health plans for most employees of the Sheriff's Department -- about $516,000 last year.

Over the past seven years, Los Angeles County Sheriff Sherman Block has undergone successful surgery for prostate cancer and chemotherapy for lymphoma, and now suffers from severe kidney failure, but he says he is in good overall health and capable of serving a fifth term. Medical experts and some members of his own staff, however, doubt whether the 73-year-old sheriff is physically up to the demands of the job.

The Los Angeles County electoral races to be decided Tuesday generally have been low-key affairs, with the notable exception of the contest for sheriff, in which the incumbent, Sherman Block, faces three opponents in his quest for a fifth term. Unlike past sheriffs' races--in which voters merely rubber-stamped the incumbent--this time Block, 73, has been forced to campaign vigorously in an effort to retain the post he has held since 1982. The sheriff's annual salary of $234,015.
