Letters to the Editor Politicos waltz as the band plays on Legend has it that the orchestra played on the deck of the Titanic as it was sinking and people scrambled to save their lives. This is what comes to mind as I read the statements of state Sen. Carol Liu in the Valley Sun article of Feb. 5, 2009 as she referred to Gov.

Following President Obama’s State of the Union Address, Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) certainly voiced what many are thinking: we are at a perilous place with our national debt and we need to deal with it responsibly. He and I have different ideas of what constitutes responsible action. Mr. Ryan said that, “…the President’s [healthcare] law is accelerating our country toward bankruptcy.” Where on earth did he get that idea?

I want to take a moment to thank all of those voters who participated in the Primary Election in the 44th Assembly District. Whether they support me or my opponent, they are to be commended for turning out on a day that saw record low voter turnout in California. I would like to especially thank those who supported my campaign with their votes, endorsements or donations. I am a community member who appreciates a clean neighborhood. That's why I have instructed the sign company to take down all of our campaign signs in the district for the duration of the spring and summer.

While some California cities are on the brink of bankruptcy, La Cañada Flintridge has roughly $15 million - nearly one-and-a-half times it annual budget - in its reserve fund. While foreclosed residences and empty storefronts present a ragged and depressed facade to other cities, La Cañada just saw a new supermarket open on Foothill Boulevard, its main drag. Councilman Dave Spence spoke confidently in his State of the City address Wednesday (given weeks after his mayoral term ended because of scheduling difficulties)

A long weekend and an even longer night Tuesday failed to resolve the state budget crisis, as Republican senators defeated a compromise tax plan their leader had supported. That leader, Sen. Dace Cogdill, lost his job over his decision to back the deal negotiated by the so-called ?Big 5,? the governor and the leaders of the majority and minority in the Assembly and Senate. He was replaced as caucus chair by Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth. As of press deadline Wednesday, there was still no budget in place.
