Underscoring the importance of an Orange County congressional seat in the battle for control of the House of Representatives, former President Clinton urged Democrats at a Santa Ana rally Friday afternoon to get out the vote for Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove). Sanchez, the only Democratic member of Congress from Orange County, made national headlines 14 years ago when she defeated conservative icon Rep. Robert K. Dornan. Now she faces a strong challenge from Republican Assemblyman Van Tran, also of Garden Grove, in a race that both major national parties are trying hard to win. "I think you have two American success stories ... with radically different ideas," Clinton said, referring to Sanchez's humble beginnings as the daughter of immigrants who worked hard to see their seven children received good educations and to Tran's experience as a 10-year-old who fled South Vietnam with his family and built a new life in the United States.

Giants 3, Dodgers 2 KEY MOMENT: Brandon League is guaranteed a combined $17 million over this season and next, which is probably why he is still with the Dodgers and Paco Rodriguez isn't. Because the Dodgers can't send League to the minor leagues without his consent, they optioned Rodriguez to triple-A Albuquerque Tuesday to create a roster spot for Brian Wilson. The Dodgers were immediately forced to deal with the consequences of that decision. Saving Wilson for a save situation, Manager Don Mattingly called on League to pitch the 12th inning with the game tied, 2-2. League wasn't helped by his defense, but he didn't help himself either.

Re "Sanchez Rolling With the Rabbit Punches Over Plans," July 21: Forget about the propriety, or lack thereof, of Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) selecting the Los Angeles Playboy Mansion as the venue for a fund-raiser to benefit the Hispanic Unity USA political action committee (which she chairs) during next month's Democratic National Convention. Forget about the fact that Al Gore, who handpicked Sanchez as vice chairwoman of the upcoming Democratic convention, is not amused and will not attend.

Film and football fans who turn out to see Kevin Costner's NFL drama "Draft Day" when it opens this weekend will watch many real-life teams in fictional action, including the Cleveland Browns that Costner's general manager character runs and the Seattle Seahawks with whom he wheels and deals. One team you won't see: the New York Jets. The colorful, sometimes embattled franchise of Namath, Maynard, Martin and Toon was scheduled to play a key role in the picture, directed by veteran helmer Ivan Reitman.

Hours after getting out of jail on domestic violence charges, a Colorado man shot his way into a  house and  killed  his ex-girlfriend, her sister and  her sister's husband, authorities said.

According to a 911 tape, Cooke said it appeared that Sanchez had suspected Cintora-Silva of cheating on him and that the shootings stemmed from jealousy and domestic violence.

Re "For Rep. Sanchez, a hot-tomato label means a hot potato," March 5 Everything positive in your article about our beloved Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Santa Ana) is true. I have known Sanchez since she first ran for an Anaheim City Council seat (she was then a Republican and was ignored by the Republican Party -- fortunately for us Democrats in Orange County). She has been exceedingly accessible to her constituents. People who work in her office convey the feeling that Sanchez is a real and caring individual willing to listen.

Jaime Barba admits that his attitude when he was growing up in the "Del Sol" area of South San Diego was "pretty much wrong." The 19-year-old would often find himself in trouble at school for fighting, and he often ran afoul of the law while hanging out with his neighborhood pals. "That's how I was--never liked to be told what to do," Barba said. "I didn't like rules, period."

One day after school, Billy found an empty kennel. "Doggin!" Billy called. He had to find Doggin before Granny did. Billy ran to Mrs. Fixie's house. "That hound of yours was here," Mrs. Fixie said. "Look at my flower garden!" Billy's stomach hurt. "Please don't tell Granny. I'll plant some flowers. " "My leather gloves are missing, too. I bet Doggin took them!" "I'm sorry, but do you know where Doggin went?" "He headed for the Sanchezes'. " "Oh, Doggin!"

* The word "dropout" doesn't exist in Laura Balverde-Sanchez' vocabulary. "I've always called it push-out ," she said. "None of us leave school because we want to." Newly named to the Cal State Los Angeles president's advisory board, Balverde-Sanchez said more borderline students could succeed if universities give them "more of a bridge" between high school and college.

She was driven to a dark road in the desert in the back of patrol car. The sheriff's deputy parked in a secluded spot in Palmdale and told her to walk to the front of the car. It was there, the woman said Friday in court, that the L.A. County deputy raped her and changed her life forever. "You essentially murdered a part of me and I'll never be able to get it back," the victim tearfully said as she stared at her attacker, Jose Rigoberto Sanchez. "A police officer is supposed to serve and protect.

Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez will be forever linked. In our memories, anyway. The New York Jets finally parted ways with their embattled former starting quarterback this month, and now the team's coach is talking about altering the tattoo on his arm that currently features a woman wearing Sanchez's No. 6 jersey. Surely, that design seemed like a great idea at the time. Well, maybe not. But it's even sillier now. A reporter asked Ryan about the ink Tuesday, and the coach seemed to decide its fate right there on the spot.

A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was convicted Thursday of rape and bribery stemming from two traffic stops, including one in which he pulled a woman over then raped her in the desert, prosecutors said. Jose Rigaberto Sanchez, 29, pleaded no contest to rape under color of authority and to soliciting a bribe and is expected to be sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison.

MEXICO CITY - Salvadoran electoral authorities on Thursday declared leftist Vice President Salvador Sanchez Ceren the winner of a bitterly contested presidential election, but the political right refused to accept the loss. Tension continued to run high in the small Central American country four days after a runoff vote favored Sanchez Ceren, a former guerrilla commander, by the tiniest of margins, according to a final count by the Supreme Electoral Tribunal. The tribunal said Sanchez Ceren, of the ruling Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN)

MEXICO CITY - El Salvador's presidential runoff was so close Sunday night that election officials declined to name a winner until a final count Monday. Adding to the confusion of the evening, left- and right-wing parties each declared victory, while conservative candidate Norman Quijano, who was trailing by just a few thousand votes, alleged in a blistering speech that the count was fraudulent. With nearly 3 million votes tallied - more than 99% of the total - Quijano, of the right-wing Arena party, was trailing Vice President Salvador Sanchez Ceren, who was a leftist guerrilla during the country's civil war, by 4,403 votes, according to the country's Supreme Electoral Tribunal.

MEXICO CITY - A former left-wing guerrilla leader held a wide lead in El Salvador's presidential race Sunday night, but it was unclear whether Salvador Sanchez Ceren could avoid a runoff. With 57% of the ballots tallied, Sanchez Ceren, the vice president of El Salvador, had a bit more than 49% of the vote. If he draws more than 50%, he will avoid a runoff provisionally scheduled for March 9. Norman Quijano, a former mayor of the capital, San Salvador, came in second, with 38% of the vote.

When Alex Sanchez, 31, of Westminster, Colo., showed up at the Denver Broncos' training camp at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, he said he was there to try out for the Broncos.

A chase ensued that reached 100 m.p.h. Sanchez was arrested and jailed.

Actor Trinidad Silva, best known for his roles as a Latino gang member in the "Hill Street Blues" television series and the movie "Colors," was killed and his wife and son were injured when their pickup truck was struck by a drunk driver in Whittier, police reported Monday. "This is a great loss to a lot of people," fellow actor Edward James Olmos said Monday. "(Silva) was a man who had committed himself totally to his craft, one of the most gifted persons I've worked with.

Ricardo Sanchez, the No. 1 morning radio personality in Los Angeles until he was abruptly sidelined last fall, has switched stations. Sanchez -- who goes by the nickname "El Mandril" -- announced this week in a Facebook post that he has joined a new radio station in Los Angeles, KXOS FM 93.9, and would begin broadcasting there on Monday. The station KXOS is part-owned and managed by the Mexico City broadcasting company Grupo Radio Centro. FACES TO WATCH 2014: Digital media "First I achieved the American dream of having success in the United States, and now I can achieve the Mexican dream of triumphing with the strongest radio company in Mexico," Sanchez wrote in Spanish in his Facebook message.

After the coffee. Before the holiday parties start. The Skinny: Caught up with "The Walking Dead" last night. Pretty intense stuff. Now I need to catch Sunday's "Homeland" although that show jumped the shark for me awhile ago. Tuesday's headlines include the mysterious benching of a popular radio personality. Also, Netflix is making a big push for kids, and the financial news channels are not enjoying the benefits of an improving stock market. Lastly, did a TV station go too far in having Ron Burgundy host its local news?
