Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez has had "too much on his plate" to get around to reducing his pay by 5% ("Despite Vow, Vasquez Hasn't Taken Pay Cut," July 28). In the spirit of volunteerism, if Vasquez will call me, I will write a letter formally requesting that the county reduce his pay from $82,056 to $77,953, eliminate his car allowance and cancel any stipends for sitting on boards of other county agencies. This action would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 1995. The only demand on his time will be to sign the letter.

Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez was more than gracious in his comments regarding the hiring of uniformed security guards by the Republican "leadership" in Orange County. It was a malicious and stupid thing to do. It seems to me that any irregularities at the polls are the responsibility of the office of the Orange County registrar of voters. In this case, the irregularities at the polls are the result of a political party acting in a totally irresponsible manner. MARTHA KILLEFER Corona del Mar

Your editorial, "O.C. Should Heed Some Timely Advice," (May 14) is heartening in that it reflects that "someone is finally listening." In 1993, as then the chairman of the Board of Supervisors, I invited the business community, cities and academia represented by Partnership 2010 to explore whether taxpayers were getting the best value for their services and whether the multiplicity of governmental jurisdictions was efficient. And necessary. Partnership 2010's President Tim Cooley accepted the challenge and Project HI-GEAR (Government Efficiency and Restructuring)

The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday directed two county agencies to study alternative ways of disposing of the millions of old tires that now are being buried in county landfills. The proposal by Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez asks the General Services and Environmental Management agencies to explore recycling and shredding of the tires, which accumulate at the rate of nearly 50 tons a day at two of the county landfills.

For the first time in decades Wednesday, the Orange County Board of Supervisors met for a regularly scheduled meeting but couldn't conduct business. Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder was on vacation in the Soviet Union, Supervisor Roger R. Stanton was on a 3-day holiday and Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez had to leave town unexpectedly Tuesday evening because of a family emergency. That left only Board Chairman Thomas F. Riley and Supervisor Don R. Roth to oversee the three public hearings that were on the board's Wednesday agenda.

Orange Mayor Don E. Smith complained Wednesday that county supervisors have ignored his offer to negotiate an agreement to expand a branch jail and, instead, have wasted money by pursuing the issue in court. "I am shocked that our efforts are being undermined by these unnecessary, time-consuming and costly legal maneuvers," Smith said in a statement. "The series of motions filed by the county have sent us a clear message--that the county is not interested in a settlement agreement."

A new welfare office to serve poor and elderly residents in South County will open April 1 near La Paz Road and McIntyre Street. Financing the office became a priority in September after an attempt by county officials to close down the small welfare office in San Juan Capistrano caused a public outcry. Those opposing the closure said it would force the poor to make the long trip to the county welfare office in Costa Mesa. The San Juan Capistrano office was closed for less than a week.

Their badges wrapped in black bands of mourning, police officers from throughout the West gathered Monday for a tearful tribute to Officer Howard Ellsworth Dallies Jr., who was gunned down last week during an apparent routine traffic stop. Dallies, a veteran officer who helped train recruits and was soon to be promoted to sergeant, was remembered as a "fallen hero" in a moving ceremony at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove.
