Promising to "energize" Orange County Democrats, Michael Balmages was chosen Monday night as the party's new county chairman.

Whenever the United States and Mexico meet for a sporting event, national pride is involved. Today in Williamsport, Pa., the Little League World Series is not just about two teams vying for the world championship--it's the symbolic competition of two nations that have been going at it since the American southwest was divided between them. So for some of the county's large population of Latinos from Mexico, the words "home team" have a complicated meaning.

The traffic jam that is the race to replace Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti saw yet another candidate step forward, with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's No. 2 policy advisor saying Wednesday that he will run for the seat. Matt Szabo, 36, became the 13th person to launch a campaign in the 13th District, which includes all or part of Echo Park, Silver Lake, Hollywood and Historic Filipinotown. As Villaraigosa's deputy chief of staff, the Hollywood resident handled such issues as the budget crisis, labor relations, the Occupy L.A. encampment outside City Hall and redistricting - the once-a-decade process of producing new maps for the council's 15 voting districts.

Monday night is Hollywood's big event, and, let's admit it, many of us will be watching those Academy Awards. It's not the acceptance speeches we care about--most are pretty bad. We certainly don't tune in to have Richard Gere or Tim Robbins bore us with their personal political agendas. And it's only in passing that we're even interested in what the stars are wearing. We watch because we want to see if the Academy is smart enough to affirm how smart we are.

Jerry Patterson, the last Democrat to represent Orange County in Congress, surveyed the crush of party stalwarts--and several renegade Republicans--assembled at the National Democratic Club on Capitol Hill. Then he nearly grinned. "I think there are more Democrats from Orange County in this room today than there are back in Orange County," he said. And if he wasn't technically correct, that's the way most folks felt.

Crime, overcrowding and the pinch of steep business-license fees and taxation are the battle cries of the coming election here, which includes the largest field of candidates in city history. "Crime. Crime. Crime. Mostly crime," Reuben Martinez, a downtown small-business owner, said of residents' concerns and the content of much of this year's campaigning. With longtime Mayor Daniel H. Young stepping out of Santa Ana politics, eight candidates--including Mayor Pro Tem Miguel Pulido Jr.

These days, City Councilman Miguel Angel Pulido doesn't rile easily. Whether he is working in his eighth-floor City Hall office or meeting a constituent at a Taco Bell table next door to his family's muffler shop, Pulido is a different man, by his own admission, than the young man who once railed against City Hall. Pulido, 33, is not the kind of politician many voters expected when they elected him three years ago.
