A long-running feud is continuing between the county recorder's officer and Stanley L. Roach, a self-described "whistle-blower." The latest chapter comes in a libel lawsuit filed by assistant recorder Ella M. Smith against Roach, who she says besmirched her reputation in his campaign literature when he challenged her boss, recorder Lee A. Branch, in Branch's reelection bid last June. Branch won the election with 72% of the vote.

Stanley L. Roach believes that his attention to detail in the summer of 1988 cost him his job at the Orange County recorder's office. Roach, a county computer analyst back then, says he was harassed, intimidated and finally discharged after he uncovered what he describes as extensive errors in the county recorder's record-keeping system, the one that keeps track of property ownership and other legal transactions in the county.

The animosity between the two candidates for the post of the county's consummate civil servant--the dutiful recorder of deeds and vital records--is obvious to even the most casual observer. Mention his opponent's name to incumbent County Recorder Lee A. Branch, 53, silver-haired, bespectacled and usually mild-mannered, and his lip curls seemingly uncontrollably. Mention the incumbent to challenger Stanley A.

With few pressing issues to turn up the heat in races for county office, most incumbents had been widely expected to win easy victories, and early results Tuesday showed them leading, though some by uncomfortably close margins. Three county supervisors were up for reelection, and two of them ran without serious opposition. Even without strong challengers, however, Supervisors Thomas F. Riley and Don R. Roth were holding surprisingly narrow leads in early returns.
