It is deceptively simple to state the issues at stake in the long-running dispute over whether Rep. Daniel E. Lungren (R-Long Beach) is entitled to be sworn in as state treasurer: For confirmation, does the state Constitution require that both houses of the Legislature vote to approve such an appointment? For a nominee to be rejected, must both houses reject him?

In 1985, my wife and I purchased a new home. In 1987, we received a supplemental tax bill for $31 for 1984. I wrote the assessor's office that it was in error as we did not purchase our home until 1985. Over the next years, we received more bills for this assessment and each time pointed out to the assessor that the bill was in error. When our lender threatened to establish an impound account, in October, 1991, I personally went to the assessor's office to demand that the assessment be removed.

In a June 25 article about the proposed Southpark in Fountain Valley, city officials are quoted as stating that any Southpark traffic problems will be "worked out." I hope the result is better than that facing a driver attempting to leave the Los Caballeros complex, very close to Southpark, during rush hour. There one can wait 10 to 20 minutes behind 10 to 20 cars, searching for small breaks in traffic. The time can be passed counting near accidents and illegal left turns from the Post Office across the street, and wondering why city officials do not install a traffic light.

Belmont High boys' soccer Coach Nancy Carr-Swaim has waited two years to retrieve the City Section Division 4-A championship trophy that was forfeited after her team had defeated Bell, 1-0, in the 1994 final. Shortly after that victory, section officials confirmed that Belmont had played a ninth-semester senior, a CIF violation. Carr-Swaim returned the trophy and no champion was declared. Second-seeded Belmont (21-1-2) will play third-seeded Garfield (14-1-5) for the title at 2 p.m.

In his native Argentina, memories are all too fresh of frightened people snatched from their beds by strangers in uniform. No less outrageous was the predawn disappearance of Luis Gabriel Gurrea from his home in Van Nuys. Gurrea, 39, came to this country legally in 1988. But confusing new federal rules and his failure to file permanent residency documents on time vaulted the soft-spoken office manager into an ongoing nightmare with the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

As an American and registered Democrat, I am deeply embarrassed by the conduct of the former first family with regard to the last-minute pardons, the obvious involvement of Hugh Rodham and their pathetic, "Golly gee, I had no idea" commentaries. Even if these statements were all true (which I don't believe for a minute), their history of vague, evasive and outright dishonest answers renders their credibility totally impotent. If we as Democrats do not actively cleanse our party of the Clintons and get our act together, we will be looking at a debacle at the polls in 2002 that will make 1994 look like a Democratic cakewalk.

If watching sporting events on a computer is the wave of the future, then the future hasn't been perfected. On the first day of the NCAA men's tournament, there were some good things about NCAAsports.com's March Madness on Demand, which offers video-streamed games from the first three rounds not available on CBS. But there were also glitches. Getting on just before the first tipoff proved difficult, particularly for those who didn't pre-register for VIP access.

The electric beater had ice cream on it, so 12-year-old Brent Bowles of Brea on Friday did what comes naturally. He licked it off. But he didn't turn off the beater first, and the springlike wire whip on the end wrapped around his tongue and would not let go. Brea Fire Department Capt. Don Poe said that when he arrived, Brent was sitting in the bathroom "with this thing on his mouth." Poe tried to pry it off, "but I just couldn't . . . and it was so painful for him." Brent was sent to St.
