Jacqui Brown Over the years when a U.S. representative has organized a "Service Academy Night" for students interested in joining the military, it was usually no big deal. But with a war raging in Iraq and the military still working to suppress violence in Afghanistan, "Service Academy Night" Monday at the Glendale American Legion certainly took on deeper meaning. Not to mention controversy. Nearly a dozen activists with posters decrying the war and the recruitment of America's youth, stood quietly outside the gates of the Legion hall to protest Rep. Adam Schiff's (D-Glendale)

Now that the state election campaigns have launched into the final stages with the traditional Labor Day start, a lot of new names are on the ballot but close races are not expected. A battle that could tip some races one direction or the other is the race for governor, in which Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger appears ready to defeat his Democratic opponent Treasurer Phil Angelides. Schwarzenegger appeared destined for defeat in this Democratic majority state, but some astute political moves and a lackluster campaign from his opponent have given the Republican a solid lead in the polls.

With filing closing next week, some of the primary elections for state political offices are developing crowded fields for the June 6 election. Filing closes today (Friday), with a five-day extension to March 15 for elections without incumbents. Since none of the local state offices have incumbents, the final list won't be known until after next week. Eight candidates are seeking the 26th Congressional District, which does have an incumbent, David Dreier. Running in the Republican primary are Dreier, Sonny Sardo of La Cañada Flintridge and Mel Milton of Walnut.

POLITICS Campbell wins primary with 45.6% of votes Republican state Sen. John Campbell on Tuesday took the most votes in a special primary to fill the 48th District Congressional seat, but his 45.6% of the ballots cast wasn't enough to head off a general election, which is set for Dec. 6. Had Campbell won 50% plus one vote, he would have become the successor to Rep. Chris Cox, who left to chair the Securities and...

Darleene Barrientos One local politician Thursday came to Nick Doom's government class at Clark Magnet High School in part to talk about his lack of hair. That's not your usual spiel from a political candidate, but Phil Koebel's not running your typical campaign. The purpose of the unusual introduction was to set the Green Party congressional candidate apart from his opponent, incumbent Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale), who sports a full head of hair.

In response to Christine Rintoul's letter appealing for an end divisiveness, my dear departed dad use to say, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions!" I'm sure you meant well because you want everyone to learn to live together, which in a sense, we all do. I was born and raised in Detroit and lived most of my life there. They used to call it a great melting pot, but now we know better. We see that it is much better to be a salad bowl, where we can appreciate peoples individual qualities and cultures.

Josh Kleinbaum For 90 minutes Friday, three congressional hopefuls took aim at Adam Schiff in the first of three debates between the four candidates for the 29th District seat in the House of Representatives, painting the incumbent as a career politician who supports war and helps expand the scope of government. Schiff did not take the bait, focusing on his record and his plans for the future instead of giving direct answers to accusations from his challengers.

Relieved that our youth can think for themselves When I opened the Oct. 13 edition of the News-Press, the headline, "Military recruiting draws fire," in large print, made me take notice. I wondered how, and why, potential military recruits had come to that attitude level of really not caring whether we're done away with by our enemies or not. Then, I read the body of the article. I found that only "nearly a dozen activists with posters decrying the war and recruitment of America's youth" showed up outside the American Legion Hall were apparently recruited by a Green Party candidate who is after Rep. Adam Schiff's seat in Congress.

One of dozens of last-minute phone political messages may have helped tipped the vote in the 43rd Assembly District. The message, also carried in a mailer, came from the California Latino Leadership Fund and attempted to link candidate Paul Krekorian and the Armenian National Committee to a suspected terrorist. The message drew immediate disapproval and a phone response from Sen. Jack Scott, who condemned the call in the strongest terms. Also condemning the tactic was Glendale Councilman Frank Quintero, Krekorian's opponent, who went on to lose Tuesday by 3,300 votes.

State Sen. John Campbell captured by far the most votes in Tuesday's special primary for the 48th Congressional District seat, but he fell just short of locking up the seat vacated by former Rep. Chris Cox roughly two months ago. Campbell earned 46% of the votes cast, a little more than four points shy of the 50%-plus-one that he needed to win the House seat outright, according to final unofficial results from the Orange...
