More than 500 Montebello landowners who contend they were cheated by Southern California Gas Co. won a bitter victory Thursday when the California Public Utilities Commission fined the giant utility nearly $3.5 million for allegedly forcing the property owners to sell their mineral rights at unfair prices and lying about their actions to regulators. The fine is part of a settlement that allows the property owners, many of whom are elderly, to undo the deals with the gas company.

Reading Jeffrey L. Rabin's article "Big Stink Over Gas Storage" in today's Times (Westside, Aug. 5) saddened me greatly--to learn that my neighbors are so totally uninformed. Oil fields beneath the coastal area is not news; nor is underground storage. Surely Ms. Boster and "more than 100 neighborhood residents" could not have been "shocked to learn that the storage field underlies about 460 acres" unless they have been living in a vacuum. They bought property in this area, not knowing?

Times labor columnist Harry Bernstein misled readers last Tuesday in his article concerning a union-backed, former Southern California Gas Company employee's attempt to obtain a seat on the board of directors of Pacific Enterprises, the gas company's parent company.

We encourage employees to participate in the plan, and we match a part of their contributions as an incentive for their participation.
