Long Beach congressional candidate Rick Zbur has received an invitation to speak at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago next week. Zbur, an environmental attorney, is tentatively scheduled to speak sometime Wednesday afternoon. But even a daytime shot at national exposure was enough for Zbur supporters to celebrate and organize a party. "It certainly raises the visibility of this race and puts it on a national scale," said Jeff Fisher, Zbur's campaign manager.

The South Bay and Long Beach communities that encompass the 36th and 38th congressional districts and the 53rd Assembly District share characteristics that have made for closely fought races this year. Voter registration splits fairly evenly between Democrats and Republicans, but if previous elections are a guide, voters will be fickle. Local economic and environmental issues loomed large in past elections. Severe dislocations in the aerospace industry rippled pain and anxiety across this area.

With little more than a week to go before the election, at least 10 California congressional districts are up for grabs--a collection of hotly contested races that is the largest in the nation and that may well leave partisan control of the House of Representatives in the hands of the state's voters. The close races include at least three in Los Angeles County and one each in San Bernardino, Orange County and the Santa Barbara area.

The California Coastal Commission on Thursday postponed granting Spanish-language television magnate A. Jerrold Perenchio a retroactive permit for his private golf course in Malibu, after officials said the commission would almost certainly be sued regardless of what it decided. The 12 commissioners told their staff to examine the legal issues more carefully and come back with a clearer understanding of what is permissible under zoning and coastal development rules.

MENLO PARK, Calif. - In their first joint interview since their multimillion-dollar Big Sur wedding drew controversy and a $2.5-million Coastal Commission fine, billionaire Napster founder Sean Parker and his newlywed wife, Alexandra Lenas, said they tried to do everything right to ensure their event was environmentally sensitive. For the former Facebook president's June wedding, the couple trucked in plants and flowers, dug an artificial pond and erected a stone bridge and elevated dance floor amid the old-growth forest near the Ventana Inn & Spa. The one thing they did not do was apply for a permit.

Some environmentalists try to make their case with emotional appeals. Some resort to angry rants. But when Gail Ruderman Feuer rose to speak in court or before public officials, she was invariably low-key: a calm presence with an understated suit, a pleasant voice, an engaging smile. It could take a few minutes to notice that this Harvard-trained environmental attorney was methodically laying out arguments that undercut those of some of California's most august industries.

MENLO PARK, Calif. - It was bad enough that his multimillion-dollar wedding became a symbol of Silicon Valley excess. But then billionaire tech guru Sean Parker was blasted in the headlines as an environmental menace over party preparations that had allegedly damaged Big Sur's storied redwoods. The Napster co-founder and former Facebook president wed singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas on June 1 in a campground owned by the posh Ventana Inn & Spa. To set the scene for their fantasy, the couple trucked in plants and flowers, dug an artificial pond and erected a stone bridge and elevated dance floor amid the old-growth forest.

California voters turned out two GOP incumbents and gave Orange County Republican Robert K. Dornan a jangling wake-up call in an election that threw control of the state's massive congressional delegation to the Democrats. The veteran Dornan, of Garden Grove, led Democratic challenger Loretta Sanchez by just 233 votes with 10,000 absentee ballots still uncounted. The result is bound to be contested.
