Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- Two Republicans who would represent Glendale for more than two decades first won office in the 1970s. Both served in the state Assembly before winning the seat they would hold until term limits forced them to relinquish their seats to their current officeholders. Carlos Moorhead first won election to the U.S. House of Representatives, a job he would have for twelve terms, in 1972. State Sen. Newton Russell won the seat he would hold for 22 years in a special election in 1974.

Robert Shaffer If state Sen. Adam Schiff doesn't win a job in Congress next year, maybe he could play one on television. Schiff will make his acting debut Dec. 15 in Steve Allen's adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" at Theatre West in Los Angeles. He will replace Allen himself as Charles Dickens, the 19th Century English novelist who wrote the original story. Schiff has not acted since talent shows as a kid, and has not obtained an agent. The state senator has no dreams of one day acting next to Meryl Streep or even Ed O'Neill.
