In my opinion, Ted Malone's letter ["I'll Vote for Hope," Aug. 19] reveals an ignorance of economics that is all too prevalent in our country. He wrongly states that the Congressional Budget Office said that one third of the Bush tax cuts goes to the wealthiest. The CBO was using 2001 data and projecting it forward without any allowance for how lowering marginal tax rates alters the behavior of taxpayers. What we know from experience is that lower tax rates lead to more investment, more growth, more jobs and a larger economic pie. The truth is, that when the opportunity to earn a bigger return on investments is available through lower taxes more investing is done.

When Whoopi Goldberg makes her remarks at a fund raiser for John Kerry and Tad Malone stands silent, when Tom Daschle, the Senate minority leader and Terry McAuliffe, the head of the Democrat National Committee attend a fund raiser showing of Michael Moore's movie and congratulate him, why isn't it fair to assume they endorse those views? Where has the Republican Party endorsed Coulter, Limbaugh or Robertson in like fashion? Senator Kerry, while taking a position on every side of the Iraq debate, says that he would involve our allies, meaning France, before going to war. On what basis does he believe France is an ally?

While other cities in the county operate on a deficit, La Cañada Flintridge remains financially stable. Seven months into the fiscal year that began July 1, the city picked up more than $1 million in sales tax revenue - a 5% increase compared to the same time last year. City officials said last week it's a sign that the retail sector is improving after the recession. “We are actually in a better position for the end of the year because the portion that was up is the tax revenue,” said Finance Director Daniel Jordan, “and that is back-loaded into the second portion of the year.” Overall, this year's budget was slightly higher because of better economic conditions.

The La Cañada Unified School District, whose students have the second-highest test scores of any K-12 district in the state, is facing several financial challenges. While California voters passed Proposition 30 in November to support public schools, La Cañada Unified leaders are concerned that the higher sales and income taxes required to pay for the measure might harm fundraising efforts by the La Cañada Educational Foundation.

It took a few years for Joseph Del Fierro to realize what kind of future his son Jason had in golf. Jason picked up the game of golf at 8 years old and within a year he began winning tournaments. It was when he sank a hole-in-one, beat his coach and won a First Tee Tournament at age 10 that his dad realized Jason had a special skill. "I was amazed with how quick he got so good," Joseph said. "After he won [the First Tee Tournament] I thought I should get serious about his golf.
