Our family is a cross cultural American family. Different religions. Different political parties. But we all love one another. A few years ago, we acquired a red, white and blue toy donkey, and a red, white and blue toy elephant. Depending on our moods, they are posed, with the donkey sitting on the elephant or the elephant kicking the donkey. Our country is also cross cultural. That?s why both John McCain and Barack Obama have disowned the negative personal attacks on the candidates and their families.

Former Rep. Carlos Moorhead - whose 24 years in Congress representing the tri-city area earned him the title of dean of the California Republican Congressional delegation - has died. He was 89. Moorhead represented Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena for two dozen years after serving in the California Assembly for six years, and in that time, amassed a faithful base of support in the region. He died Nov. 23 at an assisted living facility after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease, according to his stepson, Paul Bradford.

The lone Republican candidate so far planning to run in the 43rd Assembly District special election will be able to register for the race today from a new address, about two months after he rented an apartment in the district. The candidate, Sunder Ramani, has lived outside the district in La Cañada since 1994, but for about 25 years has operated businesses and been an active member of organizations in Glendale and Burbank, which fall largely within the district’s boundaries.

Sen. Jack Scott will face Libertarian candidate Bob New in his bid for a second term in the California Senate. New, a businessman who ran against Scott in 2000, seeks smaller government, less regulation and more individual responsibility, while Scott is looking to further his recent work on public education, consumer protection for seniors and public safety. "We've got way too much government." New said. "We've got to cut this down drastically and return more responsibility to the individual, especially the small businessman.

Time for California to “Live Within its Means” Al C. Restivo, PH.D., Chairman, La Cañada Flintridge Republican Club Every day in California, parents teach their children not to spend more than they have. Sadly, our politicians in Sacramento never learned that lesson, but we have an opportunity this November to force them. It's called Proposition 76, the “Live Within Our Means Act.” Each year, California spends more than it takes in. Last year, state revenues increased $5 billion, but autopilot spending formulas required the state to increase spending by $10 billion.

As surely as the East Coast braced last weekend for the onslaught of the hurricane with the once innocuous-sounding name of Sandy, registered voters across the nation know they can expect to be assaulted this weekend by last-minute political wrangling. No one is likely to die as a result of the pre-Election Day campaign blasts, unlike the losses sustained in states impacted by the storm; but some battering is likely to occur. Sandy gave us all pause, though, didn't she? There were a couple of days this week when candidates who are in heated races focused on the most immediate task, which was lending a hand and encouraging words where they were most needed.

Part Two: While this year's political contests seemed especially bitter because personal attacks seemed to outnumber discussions of issues, history suggests that false accusations have been part of American political contests since the early 1800s. The challenge for both parties to work together may be more difficult than previously because of the recent negative campaigns, and the political culture of aggression and hostility that values winning at any cost risks leaving important legislation undone.

California's voters approved state ballot measures to protect local government finances, fund stem cell research and collect DNA samples from felons while rejecting reform of the three strikes criminal sentencing law, open primary elections, and expansion of Indian gaming. Measure A, a half-cent sales tax increase to fund police throughout Los Angeles County, fell short of the required two-thirds majority it needed to pass, but a county supervisor who opposed the measure said he introduced a motion that would help identify additional revenue for the Sheriff's Department.

Letters to the Editor Not a Candidate To all my friends [both of you] who urged me to run for City Council, I must respectfully decline. There are far too many skeletons in my closet and with the scrutiny of a campaign I'd soon be discovered and run out of town on a rail. Indeed, the refined and genteel society of La Cañada would find it akin to inviting Attila the Hun to High Tea. To be sure, with the proposed campaign headquarters being the third bar stool from the end at Taylor's and my "campaign vehicle" an insufferably loud Harley, it would it would be best to decline.
