The 32nd Congressional District and the 47th state Assembly District have a lot in common. Territory, for one: The two newly drawn districts overlap in Baldwin Hills, the Crenshaw district, Culver City, Palms and part of South-Central Los Angeles. This year, they share something else: veteran Democratic incumbents counting on a cakewalk. Rep. Julian Dixon and Assemblywoman Gwen Moore, both in their seventh terms, face little serious opposition in these two overwhelmingly Democratic enclaves.

Rep. Diane Watson (D-Culver City) was sworn into the House of Representatives on Thursday and vowed to follow in the footsteps of the late Rep. Julian Dixon, her onetime ally and the man she was elected to replace. With more than 100 supporters and her 91-year-old mother, Dorothy Watson, watching from the House gallery, Watson took the oath from Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and then paid tribute to Dixon, a classmate at Dorsey High School and political ally.

But this year, the pastor of Holman United Methodist Church, one of the most prominent parishes in Los Angeles' black community, has asked the 18 candidates for the 32nd Congressional District race to keep a low profile. There are just too many factions to contend with.

Hundreds of Crenshaw High School students walked out of class Wednesday morning to protest a proposed name change that they say would rob the school of its history and deal a blow to its pride. It took two hours, several police units and an appearance by Rep. Maxine Waters to corral students in nearby Leimert Park and urge them to go back to school. Students were incensed when they found out last week that administrators had proposed changing the name of Crenshaw to Julian C.
