After Margot Feuer moved to the hills of Malibu in 1965, she was "catapulted into community action" by the threat of development in the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains. The terrifying proposals included building a nuclear power plant in an isolated canyon and a freeway through Malibu Canyon. "I looked around at what I was in the middle of," she later said, "and I figured, gosh, the idea of a park is a beautiful idea. " Hundreds would join her in the movement to create a national park in Los Angeles, but only Feuer and two other activists would be recognized as "the founding mothers" of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which won federal approval in 1978.

Rep. Carlos J. Moorhead virtually assured that he will become the Republican minority leader on the House Energy and Commerce Committee when he staved off a challenge Tuesday by a veteran colleague in a key vote by GOP lawmakers. This could make the Glendale conservative a significant player on a broad range of business, health, environment and technology issues. The Energy and Commerce Committee handles as much as 40% of the measures to reach the House floor, according to some estimates.

For years Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson has cast himself as a national legislator, largely free of parochial demands, a lawmaker who takes principled positions on tough issues even if doing so antagonizes some voters. A critic of the federal budget deficits, he has long called for raising taxes. He would curb spending for potent constituencies including veterans and the elderly. "He feels that if you tell the American people the truth, they'll want to do the right thing," said Rep.

Ventura County Reps. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) and Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) did not give any speeches to special-interest groups or accept any trips funded by such interests in 1992, according to financial reports released last week. Beilenson, whose 24th District includes most of Thousand Oaks, has long refrained from accepting any speaking fees or travel reimbursements. Congressional rules require that such payments be given to charity.

I'm really upset with the current redistricting. It's not the San Fernando Valley anymore since we are being given candidates like Anthony C. Beilenson and Tom Hayden, who would never have been a choice for the Valley. We aren't being properly represented. People in the Valley have nothing to do with Malibu and Santa Monica. Valley people aren't going to put up with the candidates that are being offered to us. This redistricting is fuel for a movement that the Valley secede from Los Angeles.

City park officials will soon consider a proposal by Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) to rename Lake Balboa Park in honor of his predecessor in the 24th Congressional District, former Democratic Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson. Beilenson, who stepped down in 1996, was instrumental in securing congressional funding for the lake and a host of other amenities, including hiking trails, picnic areas and landscaping, said Lake Balboa Park Superintendent James Ward.

During his legislative career, Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) did things his way. In 1967, the native New Yorker sponsored a trailblazing therapeutic-abortion law in the state Legislature before Roe vs. Wade became law. Nearly three decades later, he miffed the liberals who had long adored him by writing a law that would have denied citizenship rights to babies born to illegal immigrants in the United States.

Anthony Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills), Carlos Moorhead (R-Glendale) and other retiring lawmakers have begun the humbling transformation from congressman to regular guy. "Everybody who works in Congress or serves in Congress knows this day comes," said David Joergenson, a longtime Moorhead aide who is hustling for a new job himself. "It comes sooner for some, later for others.

The House of Representatives begins every business day on a solemn note: House Chaplain James David Ford steps to the head of the august chamber and, head bowed, delivers an opening prayer. "At the beginning of each day we give thanks to you, O God, for all the gifts and blessings and hopes that we receive," he said one recent morning. From there, the verbiage from the podium often goes downhill fast.
