Actor Ralph Waite, who played the hard-working father on the TV series "The Waltons," is expected to formally announce Thursday that he'll run for the House of Representatives on the Democratic ticket. Waite revealed his plans to seek the 37th District nomination at the monthly Riverside County Democratic Central Committee meeting Sunday. If he wins the nomination, his opponent would likely be incumbent Rep. Alfred A. McCandless, a Bermuda Dunes Republican first elected in 1982.

KNBC Channel 4 has invited Jeff Jacobs, Waite's rival for the Democratic nomination in the 37th Congressional District, to be a guest on its public affairs program, "News Conference."

If Ralph Waite is a guest star on the episode of "Shannon's Deal" airing on NBC tonight, can TV appearances by Jeff Jacobs be far behind? For the second time in as many months, Waite's work as an actor is triggering federal equal-time rules for Southern California TV stations because he also is running for a congressional seat in Riverside County.

When anti-war activist and celebrity Ron Kovic told associates earlier this week he was scrapping plans to challenge Orange County Rep. Robert Dornan, things looked bleak for those who like a little Hollywood sizzle with their politics. But then came a bulletin from actor Ralph Waite. You remember him. Back in the 1970s, Waite played the gentle patriarch of a struggling, Depression-era Virginia family on the popular television series "The Waltons."

Hilda Newman was about to bite into her cabbage roll when a murmur rose from the rear of the Senior Center lunchroom. "Look," whispered one voice, "it's that fellow from 'The Waltons.' " Newman, 77, glanced up, and there stood actor Ralph Waite--better known as Papa John Walton on the long-running 1970s television series. The farm boots and dusty overalls were gone, replaced by a snazzy gray suit and matching loafers, but there was no mistaking that creased face, those bushy eyebrows.
