One challenger is demeaned as a political neophyte and carpetbagger eager to hitch a free ride on the coattails of his storied father-in-law. The other is dismissed as an ineffective pol who is soft on crime.

The Bell City Council decided Wednesday night not to appoint as its interim city attorney the lawyer who signed off on lavish salaries for the city's top administrators. The decision came after angry Bell residents, chanting "Out, out" in Spanish at City Hall, delivered recall notices to four council members in a packed council chamber. Residents demanded the council not name Edward Lee to the post. Outside City Hall, they held up signs that read "Ed Lee Out" and "Fire Ed Lee."

Rep. Jane Harman's decision to run for governor and the retirement of Rep. Esteban Edward Torres guarantee two new faces in Los Angeles County's congressional delegation, and Rep. Jay C. Kim's legal problems create the strong possibility that a third freshman will join the group. Kim (R-Diamond Bar), who has been serving a home detention sentence at his northern Virginia residence for receiving $250,000 in illegal campaign contributions, faces tough primary opposition.

The Lynwood City Council on Friday is scheduled to consider forming a trash-hauling partnership with a controversial businessman as part of a unique -- and some say illegal -- joint venture to handle the city's waste collection.
