Bradley Ogden was born in the country; he was in his mid-20s before he went to New York City for the first time. And although he's been seducing some of the world's most sophisticated eaters for almost 20 years, he took his first trip abroad just four years ago. That is, in large part, what sets him apart from other famous American chefs. Most of them were city kids who had their first taste of fabulous food in France or Italy.

Sterling as to whether he might move his National Basketball Assn. franchise to Anaheim are stirring fears of a bidding war between interests in Los Angeles and Orange counties to attract the Clippers.

Anaheim Mayor Fred Hunter's election committee has filed an amended campaign statement reporting previously undisclosed concert tickets received from a developer hoping to build a sports arena in Anaheim. However, Hunter on Tuesday reversed his statement of last week that the $1,485 worth of tickets to an Eydie Gorme and Steve Lawrence concert were intended as a contribution to his campaign. "What we received was a bill, and we paid it," Hunter said Tuesday.

Less than a month after receiving an unreported $1,500 campaign contribution from a potential sports arena developer, Anaheim Mayor Fred Hunter voted to give the developer exclusive rights to prepare a proposal to build the arena. Campaign contribution records reveal that Hunter, elected mayor in November, failed to disclose about $1,500 worth of concert tickets from the owners of Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa.

City officials on St. George's Island, Alaska, invited the whole town--all 190 residents--to a giant "All-America City" dance when they won the national award competition last year. In Salina, Kan., a local bank is offering "All-America City" checking accounts to celebrate that city's 1989 victory. To the east, in New Bern, N.C., a barge carrying an "All-America City" sign drifted down the Trent River this week during an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration.

Anaheim has offered the county $8 million for land to build an $85-million sports arena on a site that is also being considered for a new county jail, a critical element of the effort to relieve jail overcrowding. The offer, capping months of talks, leaves county supervisors with the difficult choice of blocking the sports arena site or losing an important option in their efforts to end the overcrowding that has led to court-ordered limits on population in the County Jail. Anaheim officials said the proposal is the most significant step yet in a 3-year campaign to bring another professional sports franchise to Orange County.

With the Board of Supervisors poised to vote on a proposal that could clear the way for a sports arena in neighboring Anaheim, Santa Ana officials Tuesday announced the revival of plans to build a similar facility for their own city. Santa Ana's 20,000-seat arena would be built on 17 acres at Edinger Avenue and Lyon Street, near Century High School in an industrial and business park owned by the Santa Fe Pacific Realty Corp. Santa Ana officials said they hope that the private effort to build such an arena would lure new or existing professional sports franchises to the city.
