First-term Democratic incumbent Jack Scott has a tough fight in trying to hang on to this former Republican stronghold. The GOP, having all but conceded the neighboring 43rd District when its candidate there got into trouble, has shifted its resources to Scott challenger Ken LaCorte, a medical supplies company manager. Democrats recently lost a court bid to have Green Party nominee Shawn Waddell, a registered Democrat, knocked off the ballot.

Jack Scott in 1996 became the first Democrat elected to office in the 44th Assembly District, which covers an area stretching from Pasadena through parts of La Canada Flintridge, Glendale and into the northeastern San Fernando Valley. But the 65-year-old former president of Pasadena City College may have trouble duplicating his victory in November. The GOP is throwing its resources behind Ken LaCorte, a La Crescenta medical supply company manager.

The Republican candidate for the 44th Assembly District, in a challenge to California law, began distributing a booklet Thursday listing 938 registered sex offenders in the San Gabriel Valley. The candidate, Ken LaCorte, who last year distributed the names of sex offenders on the Internet, said he decided to publish the names, crimes and ZIP codes of the area's so-called high-risk and serious sex offenders because most people do not have Internet access.

Assemblyman Jack Scott lost a son when a host accidentally shot him in the head during a dinner party. Ken LaCorte lost a sister when a robber shot her and her boyfriend. Senseless tragedies by any measure, but what sets Scott and LaCorte apart are the roles the killings have played in each man's life. For Scott the Democrat, the 1993 slaying of his son Adam, a 27-year-old attorney, has transformed him into one of the Legislature's most ardent gun-control 0advocates.

Re Valley Perspective Interviews, "44th Assembly District," Oct 18. While I am very glad that The Times asked two candidates how they would plan for the state's population explosion to 50 million in the next 25 years, I was most disheartened by the simplistic responses from both. It's obvious from their answers--build, expand, fund--that they haven't given any real thought to the complex problems of a state with finite resources overrun with people, or even better, how to limit or control this kind of explosive growth.

A new documentary about Fox News Channel continues to spur intense debate over the network's famous claim of "fair and balanced" coverage. On Thursday night, a Fox News employee stood up in a Los Angeles theater to defend his employer at a screening of the documentary "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism." The film, by documentarian Robert Greenwald, harshly criticizes Fox News for alleged bias in favor of conservative causes and the Republican Party.
