At the age of 29, Angela Keefe on Tuesday became what local labor leaders say is the youngest person in Southern California and one of the few women to head a large union local. In a close election, Keefe beat a respected local labor leader by 43 votes, 588 to 545, to gain control of Local 681 of the Hotel and Restaurant Employees Union. The local has 5,000 full-time members in Orange County and Long Beach who work at Disneyland and some of the area's largest hotels.

On the first Sunday of March every year, the streets around the Coliseum echo with the strains of the signature song of the L.A. Marathon--Randy Newman's, "I Love L.A." Played in a continuous blare at the start, the song remained for most of the 20,000 runners more a suggestion than declaration.

The astonishing strength of Richard Riordan's mayoral candidacy is evidence of how hungry voters are for the message of enterprise, self-help and personal responsibility. His business-oriented pitch is especially resonating among homeowners and small businesses.
