A judge's ruling that a Fullerton certified public accountant cannot run for the Republican nomination for state controller leaves San Mateo County Supervisor Ruben Barrales as the only GOP candidate in the race. Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Ronald Robie ruled Wednesday that Snow Hume cannot run for the state office because he previously filed papers to run for auditor-controller of Orange County. The decision removes Hume from the June primary ballot.

Snow Hume, who is a City Council contender this time around, was accused by some candidates of stealing their campaign signs.

The controversy over George Air Force Base centers around which municipality will receive a monumental giveaway of a federal asset. The most fair and responsible approach should be to put up the parcel for sale to the highest bidder, after extensive promotion. This would be a market approach that would maximize the likelihood that the asset will be used for its highest and best use. In this manner, the city of Adelanto and the Victor Valley development authority could both competitively bid on it, and not need to "influence" particular congressmen in order to obtain it. Selling the property would treat federal taxpayers more fairly, since all U.S. taxpayers have contributed to buying and maintaining George AFB, not just the taxpayers in Southern California.

City Council members Tuesday condemned a local political activist for remarks that many officials and residents found offensive and discriminatory. The move was in response to a request from the Korean-American Assn. that the council censure resident W. Snow Hume for mimicking Mayor Julie Sa's accent at a public meeting last month. "I encourage you to make your comments but no personal attacks," said Sa, who completed her mayoral term Tuesday. "Just don't do it."

Re "Put State School Bond to a June Vote," Commentary, Feb. 4: John D'Amelio insists that classrooms can only be built with more debt or more taxes: "We need state bond dollars for this; the alternatives are increased local property taxes or higher impact fees charged on new housing." California, like most other states, continues to spend the same per capita amount on education as it did 40 years ago, adjusting for the dollar's purchasing power and not counting spending on special education programs that do not affect most students.

If one considers popular beliefs that fuel ambition, one sees that most people associate higher levels of authority with higher levels of pay. In fact, it is more or less a universal managerial dogma in this country. Even though, intuitively, it seems an obvious principle, it is not necessarily rational. It stands in opposition to the market principle of supply-and-demand. The market value for a particular type of supervisor may be lower than for the employees he supervises. So organizations often create unnecessary credentials or work-experience requirements to justify higher pay. The traditional system incorrectly presumes that supervisorial and management skills are of greater value to the organization's effectiveness and profitability than are the skills being supervised.
