"Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." Very trite but very true. Just ask 42nd Congressional District candidate Harriett M. Wieder. GEORGE C. BALDERAS Corona

Two Orange County businesswomen, both political novices, announced their candidacies Wednesday for separate seats on the Board of Supervisors. * Madelene Arakelian, 60, co-owner of South Coast Refuse Corp., will challenge state Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) for the South County district post being vacated by retiring Supervisor Thomas F. Riley. Haydee Tillotson, 55, owner of a Huntington Beach-based property management company, enters a race to replace Supervisor Harriett M.

I was disappointed to read that a small group of activists have chosen to direct their energies toward a recall of Supervisor Harriett Wieder. My observation is that Harriett has served Orange County extremely well and done so in the most unbiased, intelligent and balanced manner of any supervisor we have had. Though I may not agree with all of her decisions--although I usually do--I believe she makes those decisions based on factual information free...

I was shocked by the reported attitude of Supervisor Harriett Wieder, both in her pre-trip and post-trip behavior. Supervisor Wieder's attitude toward Americans keeping their investments in South Africa will be remembered by the 3,074 blacks in her district, should she seek reelection. While this only represents 12.1% of the district, that's 12.1% fewer votes that she will have even if she were to run for dog catcher. Add this to what I believe to be a fair number of well-meaning non-blacks in the district, and she can forget reelection.

Many of us, though not enough, seldom find ourselves agreeing with Supervisor Harriett Wieder. Pell-mell growth is not our style. But two exceptions do stand out. First, her plunking for an elevated monorail (this will come; it's not an "if," it's a "when"). Second, her call for a budget advisory committee (Dec. 17). Sound values seem accruable. A locked stable of stale air would be ventilated, allowing the fresh air of genuine public opinion to sweep the stable. The committee's ideas, too, would be factored into the draft budget before it reaches public hearings.

In an attempt to discredit a legitimate and responsible bipartisan organization, (Assemblyman) Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach), in his July 18 Commentary ("Abortion Issue Should Not Be Dividing GOP"), implies that Pro-Choice Orange County is some sort of Democratic front. His statement is untrue and unfair. Pro-Choice Orange County is a bipartisan political action committee dedicated to a single issue, the protection of a woman's right to choose. Sponsors of the organization include Republican elected officials such as U.S. Sen. John Seymour, Supervisor Harriett Wieder and (Newport Beach)

Our readers wrote letters throughout 198 7 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters. We appreciate their taking the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from you in 1988. Orange County Transportation Commission Chairman and Supervisor Harriett Wieder challenging county business executives to get more involved in resolving our traffic problems is right on target. Car pools are good business and every effort should be made by all Orange County companies to urge their employees to car-,van- or bus-pool when at all possible.

The morning I read that the Orange County Board of Supervisors approved the Laguna Laurel agreement to develop Laguna Canyon, I nearly choked on my coffee. The board approved the development in front of a large crowd of Orange County residents who vehemently opposed development in Laguna Canyon and favored slow growth in Orange County. I was under the impression that the Board of Supervisors was supposed to represent the interests of residents. Supervisor Harriett Wieder claims the agreement would "alleviate traffic" and it "meant safety on a . . . road that has had 48 deaths."

Supervisor Harriett Wieder is quoted as saying we have to "dust off" voluntary restrictions of water consumption enacted in 1988. She is also quoted as saying, "We are approaching a crisis." I submit that the supervisors are the problem. Did it every occur to the Wieders, Rileys, et al, that they, above all others, brought the present problem to its current proportions by giving developers practically a free hand to build out the southern part of Orange County. They were so anxious to please the developers and were scared to death that a slow-growth movement was about to get started that little, if any, thought was given to the future.

As a longtime resident of Huntington Beach, I'm offended by the vicious attacks a few vindictive individuals have launched against Supervisor Harriett Wieder. How soon some people forget the significant contributions this dedicated public servant has made to our city, as well as to the entire county, over the last 15 years. I'm not a personal friend of Wieder, and I'm certainly not a confidant. But I do know that on those occasions I needed to communicate with her she was always accessible and open.

The recent articles about Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder are an alarming account of the deceit and selfish behavior of just one of our local officials. I wonder if Wieder realizes there are other ways to look credible without alleging she has a college degree. Maybe she is not familiar with all of the wonderful state schools which offer evening classes for those of us who work. I wonder if she cares about the thousands of us who worked full time and earned a degree in the evening.
