i i Cos Angeles Tunes R Saturday. October 18, 1986Part II 5 Study Sees Jump in South County Population By BOB SCHWARTZ. Times Staff Writer South Orange County's population is expected to grow by nearly 800,000 people over the next 25 years, according to new figures released by the major regional planning group for six Southern California counties. The increase would boost south Orange County's population from 640,000 to 1.437.000 about 200.000 more than the Southern California Assn. of Governments projected in its last complete report, issued in 1985. Exceed County Projections The figures, which are preliminary and must be approved by SCAG's executive committee, exceed projections made by the county and indicate that Orange County will be the fastest-growing of 24 subregions in the area studied, which includes Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties. According to the figures, south Orange County roughly, the area south of the Costa Mesa Freeway would capture 13.6 of the nearly 6 million people expected to settle in the area by the year 2010. And, since all those people will need homes, an estimated 350.000 new housing units will be built in the area for them. North Orange County, in contrast, is expected to add only about 260.000 people and 140,000 housing units in the same period. The new SCAG figures for individual counties and subregions were derived from a study released last month that said the entire area's population would jump 43 to a total of 18.3 million by 2010. The study projects greater growth for Orange County and the region as a whole than did the previous SCAG report because it incorporates new assumptions on legal and illegal immigration flows and birth rates for different age and ethnic groups, SCAG senior planner John Oshimo said. For example, Oshimo said, illegal immigration into the six-county area was projected to remain at about 46,000 people per year 85 of whom would be Latinos with 64,000 more immigrants coming legally each year. The earlier SCAG report projected a total Orange County population of 2,830,000 in the year 2010, about the same as the county's own estimate, county demographer Bill Gayk said. The new projection brings Orange County's population over the 3-million mark, to 3,097,000. "They use a different methodology than we do, and a major chunk of the additional projected growth is due to the effects of immigration," Gayk said. "We don't make the same assumptions." The county's projections have been "right on track" in recent years. Gayk said, adding that he saw no reason to believe that the new SCAG figures are more accurate than the county's numbers. The Board of Supervisors has asked SCAG to justify its higher forecasts and prepare a paper explaining the potential financial and planning impacts of the forecasts. Want Hard-Core Figure "We're asking them for the hard-core figures behind the facts," said Christie L. McDaniel, an aide to Supervisor Thomas F. Riley. "There is the perception that south Orange County is growing fast, and we don't want to perpetuate that more than it is true." The figures will undoubtedly be revised as SCAG's executive members, made up of elected officials from the counties and cities that make up the association, prepare the final report for 1987. The report will be the chief document the group will use in addressing regional planning issues that range from housing and transportation to air quality and social services, Oshimo said. Bird-Deukmejian Battle Heats Up as Vote Nears By FRANK CLIFFORD and RICHARD C. PADDOCK, Times Staff Writers The confirmation election of California Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird is becoming a personal battle between Bird and Gov. George Deukmejian as the two intensify attacks on each other during the final month of the fall campaign. For the last two weeks, Bird has been working strenuously to make Deukmejian and his alleged court -packing plan the focal point of a campaign that, until recently, has been fixated on Bird's unbroken record of anti-death penalty opinions. If nothing else. Bird has temporarily turned the tables on the governor who, for weeks, has made the chief justice a primary target of his campaign for reelection against Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley. "We need the death penalty. We don't need Rose Bird," Deukmejian says to applause in almost every campaign speech. But on Friday, as he campaigned in Los Angeles, the Republican governor was repeatedly questioned by reporters about Bird's latest charges, and he denied that he has a "quota" of votes that a Supreme Court justice must cast in favor of the death penalty in order to win his support. 'A House of Death' Bird contended Thursday that Deukmejian is trying to turn a "house of justice" the Supreme Court into "a house of death" as part of a scheme to establish a national political reputation. She said he wants to be vice president, a contention the governor denied. "If there is a house of death, it is the homes where these murders have occurred," said Deukmejian, noting that California has witnessed more than 24,000 murders without a single execution. Bird said this week that Deukmejian has a history of opposing judges who do not measure up to a political litmus test that he has been administering in one form or another since 1981. That year, Deukmejian asked four prospective judges to give their opinions of 15 Supreme Court decisions, including some death penalty reversals, with which he had disagreed. He was then attorney general and a member of the Judicial Appointments Commission that is required to approve all appellate court nominations. The four judicial nominees, all nominated by then-Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., a Democrat, refused to answer Deukmejian's queries, and he voted against three of them. California Elections All four judges were appointed, however, because the majority of the three-member commission, which included Bird, approved them. The four judges were Supreme Court Justice Allen E. Broussard, former Supreme Court Justice Otto Kaus, Court of Appeal Justice El-wood Lui and former Court of Appeal Justice Vincent S. Dalsi-mer. Deukmejian voted only for Kaus. At the time, Bird was sharply critical of Deukmejian for trying, as she put it, to ensure that judges shared his "political or judicial" philosophy. Now, she says he is still trying to impose his political will on the judiciary. As evidence, Bird cites Deukmejian's recent decision to oppose the reelection of Supreme Court Justices Joseph Grodin and Cruz Rey-noso because they have not often voted to uphold death penalties. Deukmejian had supported Gro-din's 1982 appointment to the court while opposing Reynoso's the same year. According to his campaign manager, Reynoso, before his 1982 appointment to the court, also , 100 COTTON FUTONS Now available in pastel colors. All units available in walnut and oak.

"Reynoso responded, based on his reading of two U.S. Supreme Court opinions, that it would be unethical for him to talk about specific cases," said Neil Rincover, the justice's campaign manager. Deukmejian spokesman Kevin Brett said the governor had only been trying to "to examine the analytical skills, reasoning abilities, qualifications and concern for public protection by prospective nominees." Speaking to reporters, Deukmejian denied Bird's charge that he has established a death penalty quota that allows him to support Justice Stanley Mosk, who has voted 17 times to impose the death penalty, while Grodin has voted to affirm the death penalty in five cases. Deukmejian dismissed the charge that he is exploiting the death penalty issue to propel himself into national politics. "Well, that's ridiculous," he said. "I have been involved with the death penalty issue throughout my entire 24 years in public life, start- ing when I was an assemblyman, going on as a senator and attorney general and now as governor." Deukmejian also denied that he is trying to control the court. r v r i h WEDNESDAY THRU SATURDAY 10:00-5:00 SUNDAY 12:00-5:00 Shown in this ad are just a few of the incredible bargains being offered hght now, during this gigantic liquidation!
