A retirement perk for elected department heads that will cost Ventura County government nearly $1 million over the next 10 years is being challenged by Supervisor Steve Bennett. Elected on a reform platform last fall, Bennett said he plans to bring a letter before the board next month asking members to reconsider the benefit, which he likened to a retirement giveaway that past review committees have openly condemned.

A 22-year-old man was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the 2006 killing of a suspected drug dealer at his Irvine home. An Orange County Superior Court jury in April found Brandon Turner of Oceanside guilty of murder and three other felonies. Prosecutors say he and two other men shot and killed Brian Gray as part of a plot to steal money and cocaine from him on Super Bowl Sunday. Stephen Bennett, 37, and Bernard Smith, 44, both of Vista, are still on trial.

The Ventura City Council Monday approved a $215,000 upgrade of the council chamber's sound system and television cameras, part of a new public awareness program. City Clerk Barbara J. Kam said the sound system now in the council chamber is 21 years old and rapidly failing. However, the new audio-visual system will do more than end the era of broken microphones.

I was deeply troubled by your article. As chief executive officer of AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), the largest AIDS service organization in California, I can attest to Mayor Bradley's unwavering support of people impacted by HIV. He was one of the first politicians in California to speak out about this disease and put the city's money at the disposal of homeless people with AIDS. Since the position of AIDS program coordinator was created in 1988, we've seen the city spend millions of dollars to fund a variety of programs for people with HIV. The city's AIDS office also created and adopted what has been called the nation's most comprehensive AIDS policy.

After watching a sexually explicit movie in court, a jury agreed that the X-rated "Spermbusters" may be pornographic, but not obscene. Walter M. Epler, a clerk at Pussy Cat Adult Bookstore in Largo, was acquitted Thursday on a misdemeanor charge of distributing obscene material. He was charged after renting a "Spermbusters" videotape to an undercover sheriff's detective.

I first joined AIDS Project Los Angeles in June, 1983, as a volunteer and was hired as their first director of volunteers six months later. I continued with the agency until 1989 and witnessed many changes. I must take exception to the conclusion presented in your article (Times, Nov. 24) that Stephen Bennett is responsible for bringing the agency from the brink of bankruptcy. Although I had many differences with Frank Paradise, interim director of the agency before Mr. Bennett, it is my determination that it was he, not Mr. Bennett, who pulled APLA out of the hole.
