Andrew Cunanan sighted in Oklahoma City

Susan Golding away from work a lot

Fugitive Andrew Cunanan, the 27-year-old Bishop's School graduate accused of slaying four during a coast-to-coast killing spree, has been sighted in Oklahoma City. FBI sources say the former Hillcrest resident, who hung around with wealthy, closeted gay La Jolla men, has been seen during the last few weeks, possibly driving the same red pickup truck stolen from a murdered New Jersey cemetery caretaker who was killed May 9. The red Chevrolet pickup has New Jersey plates reading KH993D. Sources say the latest sighting of Cunanan, who is on the FBI's ten-most-wanted list, may mean he is on his way back to San Diego, in time for local gay pride celebrations later this month.

Posh fixers

Housing the poor in a ritzy neighborhood like La Jolla can get pretty pricey. Take the case of eight townhouses in the 7400 block of Cuvier Street. Two years ago, a group called Strongly Oriented for Action (SOFA) received $85,000 of federal money dished out by the city council to fix up the units, dedicated to the few poverty-stricken residents of La Jolla. But that kind of cash doesn't go very far in such an upscale neighborhood. Last month SOFA was back at city hall, hat in hand, asking for another $138,000. The money is to be used for such niceties as a new fence, an enlarged laundry room; "upgraded" lights in the parking lot, new tiles in the bathrooms, new sinks, vanities, and mirrors; new garbage disposals; and eight new sliding-glass doors. So far the La Jolla poverty project has cost federal taxpayers about $28,000 per unit in rehab costs alone.

I got Sue

So far, Susan Golding, Matt Fong, and Darrell Issa seem to have the Republican U.S. Senate primary battle to themselves. Golding backers exulted when ex-rocker Sonny Bono pulled out of consideration for the race last month, but that hasn't stilled speculation that others may soon jump into the contest. Latest name in play: San Bernardino congressman Jerry Lewis, said to have more than a million dollars of campaign money stashed away should he chose to make the race. "At this point, it's obvious to me that Jerry hasn't closed the door on a Senate run," Lewis spokesman Dave LesStrang told a Washington newspaper last week. Then there's actor Tom Selleck, who is still rumored to be interested, and millionaire businesswoman Noel Irwin-Hentschel, said to be mulling over a bid. Issa, once thought to be a dark horse, begins running $2 million worth of radio ads this month to improve his name identification. A spokesman says Issa, a car alarm magnate from Vista, expects to spend as much as $14 million of his own money in the primary. Meanwhile, Golding spends more and more time away from the job she was reelected to just last year.
