In a lightly attended state primary Tuesday, Democrat Russ Warner won a direct shot at longtime Republican Congressman David Dreier in November in the 26th Congressional District that includes La Cañada Flintridge. The voter turnout in L.A. County was just over 16%, six points less than the state average, as the ballot was bereft of many meaningful contests. Warner beat his primary opponent Cynthia Matthews by a 2-1 margin, a reversal of the results two years ago, and received 14,528 votes.

The newly designed tunnel to Palmdale was announced by Peter Piper, who revealed the hole in the mountain along with an artist's rendition of the new tunnel. The shortcut is to be build under the Angeles National Forest. The plans call for the tunnel to be built over six years at a cost of 3 billion dollars and will allow quick and easy access to Palmdale and points north. "It is a waste of money," complained Pula Pennypincher. "We should spend the money on schools and filling potholes, not drilling holes in mountains."

Letters to the Editor Wants Dreier reelected I am once again supporting Congressman Dreier this year because he continues to stand up for what’s right — our troops, lower taxes, and less government spending. He is a true conservative who is always loyal to his principles. For example, he recently voted against the bloated farm bill that simply continues federal subsidies rather than reforming them. He also stood strong against a Democrat plan to raise taxes on small businesses.

Congressman Adam Schiff is reviving his proposed bill to study a nature conservancy zone around the Rim of the Valley trail, which stretches in concept from the Arroyo Seco to the Conejo Valley. Schiff said he has hopes for more success with the bill this session. "This is our third or fourth time around," he said. "It passed the Senate before, and one time got through committee." The legislation directs the secretary of the interior to study the feasibility of expanding the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area to include the mountains and canyons in Southern California that are part of the Rim of the Valley Corridor, as designated by the State of California.
