* Los Angeles Times:  "Does Carson's mayor, a leader in the NFL's stadium push, live in Carson?" - From the LAT:

A practicing attorney who holds two part-time elected offices, Albert Robles has a daunting work schedule. He's been even busier since becoming a high-profile promoter of efforts to build an NFL stadium for the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders on an old landfill in Carson, where he is mayor. Robles said his family comes first, however. Most days begin with breakfast together in a cozy Kenwood Avenue apartment. He drives his two children to school in the morning, he said, sometimes ferries them home in the afternoon and occasionally manages to join them for after-dinner TV.

Several current and former residents of Kenwood described him as a well-liked neighbor of many years. They said they have watched Robles and his wife, Sonjia Quanitte, who owns the apartment building, dote on their son and daughter from the time the children were newborns. But Robles insisted he has never lived on Kenwood, which is about 10 miles north of Carson in the Adams-Normandie district of Los Angeles. He said he lives with his parents in a small house they own on Carson's East 214th Street. Robles returns to Kenwood at daybreak, he said.

Much is riding on where Robles lives ......................
