Local Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) did a good thing last week. On Friday, he chaired an informational hearing at the Pasadena City Hall concerning tax credits for the film industry. Until the late 1990s, California’s entertainment industry stimulated our regional economy with local film shoots and local production. Incentive programs in other states and in Canada have lured away a lot of that business. A recent report in “Variety” notes that due to tax breaks, “the recent box office hit ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ was shot almost entirely in Louisiana, because rebuilding the Santa Monica pier was more affordable than filming on-location.” Assemblyman Portantino wants to extend an existing California tax credit for the entertainment industry; the credit is currently due to expire in two years.

There have been many stories written about 21-year-old La Cañada resident Emily Wynne-Hughes since the Jan. 13 airing of her Phoenix American Idol audition. She auditioned in Phoenix, Ariz. and made it to Hollywood, making an impression on all four Idol judges. But the press that has followed since has not always been on the positive side. “I have had a harsh awakening,” Wynne-Hughes said about the last few weeks. “My life is under the microscope.” She made the decision to audition for American Idol after she and her mother had a heart- to-heart discussion about her future in the recording industry.
