Los Angeles County voters on Tuesday will select two supervisors, an assessor and a sheriff, while deciding five contested judgeships and local issues ranging from cityhood for Malibu to new ethics rules for Los Angeles municipal officials. One of the hottest races has unfolded in the eastern part of the county, where Supervisor Pete Schabarum's decision to retire created a rare opportunity to put a new face--possibly the first Latino--on the board.

Peter J. Pitchess, the Los Angeles County sheriff who transformed the nation's largest Sheriff's Department from a rustic cowboy agency into a modern professional law enforcement organization, died Sunday at his home in Newport Beach. He was 87. Designated "sheriff emeritus for the rest of his life" by the Board of Supervisors, Pitchess helped pin on Sheriff Lee Baca's badge, at Baca's request, when the new sheriff was sworn in Dec. 7.

Friday was the deadline for candidates seeking congressional, state legislative and county offices to file nomination papers for the June 5 primary election.
