Guerra, a close friend of Tony Castro whom he credited for influencing him to get into mainstream journalism, died in 2010.

War coming over Valley seat in Congress
The Daily News' Tony Castro says that despite Alex Padilla's talk of running for mayor, the state Senator from Pacoima really wants to be in Congress. That, in turn, sets up a renewal of the fight over the drawing of a so-called Latino House seat in the San Fernando Valley. From Castro's personal blog:
The hope among Padilla's supporters is that Councilman Richard Alarcon will gracefully give up his own ambitions for Congress, Castro writes.
Add Castro blog: He calls journalist Tina Daunt's personal fashion and style blog The English Muse "the most elegant blog around."
