Judy Mikels has heard it all before. She's arrogant and inaccessible. She's not supportive of public safety. Each time, the 12-year Ventura County supervisor has beaten back the claims and remained in office. But as her fourth campaign swings into the final weeks before the June primary, Mikels is facing a new line of attack: that she doesn't really live in her Simi Valley district and is coasting through her job.

I was sorry to learn that Supervisor Judy Mikels was given the entire Las Posas Valley as part of her district. Preserving Somis as it is was one of the reasons I gave several hundred dollars to SOAR (Save Our Agricultural Resources). It is a distinctly little country town/village that reminds me of the remote country area I grew up in, in Canada. I was taken with Somis when one day I decided to walk through the residential area. So many homeowners have done something unique to their properties to make them very attractive.

Where did Ventura County Agriculture Commissioner Earl McPhail get the misguided notion that public health is protected by way of "stiff" permit restrictions? ("Residents Want Farm's Pesticide Permit Revoked," June 26). Current law allows fumigation of fields, with an extremely toxic chemical, to within 30 feet of residential backyards, and growers are not required to issue public health warning notices. These conditions constitute a gross lack of public protection, and no self-respecting individual would say otherwise.

The widening of Highway 118 to four lanes would reshape agriculture in the Las Posas Valley, probably for the better. People need to understand that for farmers to succeed, our products must get to market in a timely manner. For that we rely upon good roads and less congestion. I guess people think farmers airlift their oranges, lemons and avocados to port. If you look around, you'll be hard-pressed to find a lot of helicopters lifting from orchards around the Las Posas Valley. Of course, we have to truck our goods on county roads and state highways.

Re "Decision on Merger Was Reasoned and Rational," by Supervisor Kathy Long, Oct. 11. Of the DeLoitte & Touche L.L.P. report on the wisdom of merging the Public Social Services Agency with the Behavioral Health Department, Supervisor Long said, "The merger report concluded under various options, including merging PSSA with BHD, there would be no negative financial impacts." The Board of Supervisors hired one of the best legal firms to study two prior investigative reports. That so far has cost the taxpayers $32,000 for just their outside legal fees.

Re "Public Comment, Input Play Heavily in SCAG's Inclusive Planning Efforts," Ventura County Perspective article by Supervisor Judy Mikels, Jan. 17. In Ms. Mikels' zeal to criticize Patricia Feiner Arkin, our supervisor forgets that one who lives in a glass house should not throw stones. She alleged that the Southern California Assn. of Governments has taken extraordinary efforts to incorporate the concerns and inputs of all, including the public. The facts demonstrate otherwise. There were four potential occasions when SCAG's master environmental impact report was to be discussed in Ventura County.

In a surprise reversal that infuriated Somis residents, a divided Ventura County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to unite the Las Posas Valley in Supervisor Judy Mikels' district. Supervisor John Flynn, seeking to preserve his own Oxnard-based district, changed his earlier position and cast the key vote in support of Mikels' motion. Supervisor Frank Schillo also favored the move.

Responding to continuous attacks by some of her constituents, Ventura County Supervisor Judy Mikels said Tuesday she would consider giving up the eastern portion of the Las Posas Valley under a plan that would reconfigure each of the five supervisors' voting districts.

Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl surged ahead in the 23rd Senate District Democratic primary and claimed victory early Wednesday in the hard-fought campaign, while Assemblyman Jack Scott jubilantly declared a win in the 21st Senate District. "I honestly think we won!" Kuehl told supporters in Santa Monica. With more than half of the precincts reporting, Kuehl led Assemblyman Wally Knox with 50% of the vote, and Scott claimed victory with a 10-point margin over Assemblyman Scott Wildman.

Talk about bad timing. Just as Ventura County Supervisor Judy Mikels began to focus on higher office, the new chief administrator resigned, saying he'd found overwhelming problems in county government that the Board of Supervisors lacked the political will to fix. For Mikels, that huge dose of bad news came as she was girding for a sprint to the March 7 primary election, and already fighting an uphill battle against Assemblyman Tom McClintock to replace state Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley).

Stung by criticism that their organization has outlived its usefulness, trustees of the Moorpark Mosquito Abatement District said Tuesday that residents still need protection from pests. The district, which monitors and controls insect populations around Moorpark, has come under fire recently from critics who consider it an expensive anachronism, a holdover from a time decades ago when immense local chicken ranches accidentally bred swarms of flies and mosquitoes.
