We walked on Foothill Boulevard. Me, Big Len and Miss Audrey Hepburn. Miss Hepburn is our black Lab mix, a rescue dog from the Pasadena Humane Society. Suddenly, we heard the sound of a black helicopter. We looked up and saw a press release floating down from the Touchdown statue.

?It?s really hard to hit a moving target,? Assemblyman Anthony Portantino of La Cañada Flintridge said of efforts by the legislature to reach an agreement with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger over the current growing deficit in the state budget. Unless a way can be found to meet the gap, now estimated at $17 billion plus, the state could run out of money and be issuing IOUs by March, according to budget officials. Complicating the issue further is the release of the 2009-2010 budget estimates, which bring the shortfall up to $41.6 billion by June of 2010.

Resident David C. Wilcox is clearly worried about President Obama but presents a tepid rationale for the existential threat to liberty that the Obama Administration evidently poses [“Terrified of another term for Obama,” Mailbag, April 5]. Yes, the deficit is a problem. Under President Bush, Republicans aggressively reduced taxes and dramatically increased government spending, thereby squandering a huge Clinton-era surplus and guaranteeing decades of red ink. But I am guessing that Wilcox was not as concerned with the financial impact of undeclared war on a country that posed no direct threat to the US (Iraq)

I spent so much time recently stewing about all the banking bigwigs’ multi-million dollar bonuses, that I neglected to notice my own depleted finances. Had they been siphoning money from my account to help pay for their golden parachutes? No, I guess I should have figured that if both my husband and I have been home everyday, no one was out earning a paycheck. Apparently, we weren’t on vacation. So, for the third time this year, we were in need of our own financial bailout.

Utility should pay for generator rental I am a retired, 100-year-old physician, former director of education at Huntington Memorial Hospital with honorary degrees from Johns Hopkins and various other places. Recently I received a printed card in the mail informing me that the electricity to my house was to be turned off on Aug. 2 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Since I am on obligatory oxygen all the time I asked Southern California Edison for advice. They suggested that I rent a generator.

Assemblyman Anthony Portantino said this week he did not support the continued use of “quick fix” solutions to meet the state’s ongoing budget crisis. The local legislator, who was reelected Tuesday, said he specifically did not agree with reported plans by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to call a special session of the outgoing legislature to try to come up with solutions in the three weeks before the term ends. A lame duck session would include 29 Assembly members and ten state senators who are leaving their posts in December, including Jack Scott.

Assemblyman Anthony Portantino and several colleagues joined Monday in calling on the federal government to spend up to $70 billion to support higher education in California and across the nation. Portantino, who chairs the state Assembly Higher Education Committee, likened the proposal to the government?s GI Bill, which provided college funds for World War II veterans. ?My father went to school under the GI bill,? the La Cañada Democrat said. ?That?s how we went from being an immigrant family to an urban family.
