More than 30 community leaders and local residents rallied around 39th Assembly District candidate Tony Cardenas on Friday as he attacked his rivals for supporting construction of the Pacific Pipeline. Cardenas, owner of a San Fernando real estate agency, opposes the oil pipeline that would run through the community just west of San Fernando Middle School. Campaign director Alex Padilla said the school's proximity to the proposed pipeline is the community's main concern.

Your article on the death penalty case pending before the Supreme Court infuriated me. Virginia already executed one man this year who was arguably innocent. Texas now attempts to put another to death. For what purpose? Because, despite new evidence, the trial procedures were constitutional and Texas has an interest in moving cases along? An innocent person may have been sentenced to die! His evidence, however late, deserves to be reviewed by a federal judge. Given the erosion by the Rehnquist court of many so-called constitutional rights, I am not surprised that the Supreme Court agreed to hear this case.

For one of the more dramatic images floating around in the current flurry of political literature, look no farther than a flier by Assembly candidate Tony Cardenas in which he proclaims his opposition to a new oil pipeline in the northeastern San Fernando Valley. The mailer's cover features a vivid photograph of a pipeline explosion in the Northridge earthquake. "The Roar of the Earth . . . A Devastating Explosion," reads the cover, and inside: "That's how oil pipeline explosions happen.

Re: "Cardenas Assails Rivals Who Back Oil Pipeline," March 16, and "Cardenas' Oil Pipeline Mailer a Little Slippery," March 22. There is a bit of confusion on the controversy over the Pacific Pipeline proposal and the disaster that occurred at Wolfskill Street in Mission Hills after the 1994 earthquake which I'd like to clarify. Thirty-Ninth Assembly District candidate Valerie Salkin stated in a March 16 article that the Arco Four Corners pipeline, which ruptured and ignited at Wolfskill Street, carried gas, not oil. In the March 22 Times, the reporter implies that oil pipelines do not burn; that only natural gas pipelines burn.

An investigator from the secretary of state's office in Sacramento has joined in a probe of possible voter registration fraud in the northeastern San Fernando Valley. Secretary of State Bill Jones announced at a news conference in Norwalk on Friday that he had sent one of his staff to help look into allegations that several noncitizens had recently signed up to vote in the 39th Assembly District, the scene of a bitterly contested primary among five Democratic candidates.
