North County News
Anaheim Mayor Fred Hunter and Mayor Pro Tem Tom Daly will face off in the race for mayor this November, while Councilman William Ehrle will vie along with as many as 13 other candidates for a council seat.
Fourteen aspiring candidates had taken out nomination papers to run for the two city council seats Daly and Ehrle now hold.
Daly, who has served one four-year term on the city council, also has taken out papers to run
against Hunter for a two-year term as mayor. Hunter already has served four years as mayor.
Ehrle, who has served five years as a council member, and Fares Batarseh, an area sales manager, already have filed their nomination papers with the city clerk's office.
The field of candidates, includ
ing Daly, Hunter and Planning Commissioner Bob Zemel, also have taken out papers to run for council. They must submit the nomination papers, along with 20 residents' signatures, by 5 p.m. Friday.
Among the potential candidates are Keith Olesen, a community activist who chaired the city's gang and drug task force; Frank E. Feldhaus Jr., a former city planning commissioner;
Frank Turner, a Los Angeles County fire captain; Ed Skinner, the owner of a concrete mixing company and Gregory Ramsay, a health care executive.
Community college professor Phil Knypstra, activist Mel Agui-lar, law student Todd Kaudy, college student Manuel Ontiveros and bakery manager Donna D'Anella also have taken out papers to run for council.
Several of the candidates who
are considering running for the council seats already have experience in running for political office.
Feldhaus finished fifth when he ran for a city council seat in 1990.
Ramsay unsuccessfully ran against Assemblyman Mickey Conroy, R-Orange,for the 46th Assembly District seat last November, while Skinner lost his bid for U.S. Congress in 1976.

If you've never attended a City Council meeting, watching next Tuesday's meeting at 200 S. Anaheim Blvd. should be better than viewing the popular television shows "Roseanne" and "Full House" combined.
You might call it the "Battle of the Street Vendors" or "Let's Make a Deal." But whatever you call it, a group of Anaheim property owners are mad as heck and they're not going to take it anymore.
During the past two years, since the city loosened restrictions on street vendors and lowered fines, apartment, condominium and home owners

ANAHEIM — On the surface, they were an average family. Mom took the children to school, dad worked the yard and on weekends the aroma of barbecue and a friendly family atmosphere filled the air.
The neatly trimmed rose bushes in front of the Luongs' home in the 2400 block of Rainbow Avenue — as well as their neighbors — attest to that.
"It seemed like just such a nice family," said Myrtle Ryan, who lives across the street from the Luongs. "They were very good to their children and had even just bought them bicycles with training wheels."
