Re: Malibou Lakeside/an open letter to Supervisor Ed Edelman: The further crippling of Malibou Lakeside by the Board of Supervisors on Jan. 28 was wrong and cowardly. After two years of being unable to substantiate the doomsday claims of a small, elitist group of constituents, Supervisor Ed Edelman has suddenly realized that he had better cover his tracks and try to reduce the county's liability for violating private property rights. So he asked for another study of the first study.

The opening of a new outpatient clinic for diagnosis and treatment of acquired immune deficiency syndrome at County-USC Medical Center was announced by Supervisor Ed Edelman. A total of 741 AIDS cases have been diagnosed in Los Angeles County since 1978, and Edelman called it "the nation's No. 1 public health threat." The new facility at the hospital's outpatient clinic in the 1100 block of Cummings Street is staffed by a physician, nurse, social worker and clerical personnel.

The Times' article about the Los Angeles Free Clinic's expansion into Hollywood was most appreciated. The need for services in the Hollywood area is so urgent that the project has support from three local government entities. The county of Los Angeles, through the office of Supervisor Ed Edelman, has allocated $225,000 from the Community Development Commission, the city of Los Angeles, through the office of Councilman Michael Woo has allocated $750,000 from the Community Redevelopment Agency, and the state of California, through the office of Sen. David Roberti, has allocated $325,000 of California Health Financing Authority funding.

Joan Cooper's letter recently attacking Supervisor Ed Edelman for voting to deny the Montevideo project is absurd. What costs Los Angeles County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars are proposals like Montevideo. This project has been before the Board of Supervisors 32 times. How many hours of staff time and dollars of taxpayers' money is that? Add to that Supervisor Mike Antonovich's motion to reconsider and send this project back to the Regional Planning Commission, where we have already held innumerable hearings, and you add more thousands of dollars of staff time.

The Times article ("County Officials' Expense Tab Tops $117,000," Metro, Feb. 1) struck me as particularly outrageous. Like most folks struggling to make ends meet, I can't afford to even think about spending $7,000 for dinner or $795 for coffee service. But I was personally offended at one item noted in the article: Supervisor Ed Edelman spent $411 for a "lunch to discuss Pan Pacific Park." As one of those who has been actively participating in the discussions about the future of Pan Pacific, I was summoned to Supervisor Edelman's office to explain why I have reservations about his plan to build a museum in that park.

Sounding almost as though it would like to declare Malibu a Martin Sheen-free zone, the beach town's Chamber of Commerce said Tuesday that it had reminded the actor that his only duty as honorary mayor was to promote the "Shop Malibu" campaign. "Malibu is a laughingstock," confided one business leader, referring to Sheen's Monday declaration of Malibu as a nuclear-free zone and a sanctuary for aliens and the homeless. Rush Limbaugh, a New York-based radio talk show host who said he "likes to illustrate absurdity by being absurd," announced that he would hold a contest to see which of the 125 cities that carry his show could "charter the first bus of indigents and illegal aliens to send to Malibu."

Park advocates involved in efforts to preserve the Santa Monica Mountains are keeping their fingers crossed in hopes that a court-ordered redrawing of Los Angeles County supervisorial districts will survive an appeal by the county. Conservationists believe the boundary realignment, intended to create a Latino majority district, will also help their cause by putting the mountains in a single district to be served by Supervisor Ed Edelman.

Flushed with the success of the Los Angeles-Long Beach Light Rail Line opening, county transit officials Thursday called for the resumption of formal negotiations with the Southern Pacific Transportation Co. for the purchase of 173 miles of additional right of way for commuter rail lines. "I'm asking Southern Pacific to come back to the bargaining table," said county Supervisor Ed Edelman, who chairs the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission. "The public wants light rail . . .

The lawsuit to require greater Latino representation on the Los Angeles City Council has raised again the question of whether we have enough elected officials serving our ever-increasing population. As one of only three countywide elected officials, representing more than 8 million people, I well understand the diminishing possibility for any single individual to respond to all constituent concerns. From time to time, proposals have been made to expand the City Council.

Responding to complaints from nearby homeowners about noise and graffiti, Los Angeles County authorities have assigned four security guards and two recreation directors to Pan Pacific Park in the Fairfax District. Plans are also under way to move the park's parking area from 1st Street, where it abuts a residential neighborhood, to a vacant lot just off Beverly Boulevard, county Supervisor Ed Edelman said last week.

From Malibu to East Los Angeles, it seems that everyone I talk to who is even vaguely familiar with the workings of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is either choking with outrage or shaking their heads in bemusement.
