A Southern California Edison plan to bring more renewable energy to the Southland is in a temporary holding pattern as the utility waits for Federal Aviation Administration clearance to allow helicopters to buzz over La Cañada Flintridge and Pasadena. Edison had hoped to begin stringing new power lines along local towers this month to accommodate electricity from wind farms near Tehachapi. Edison spokeswoman Marissa Castro-Salvati said workers are still waiting for final approval from the FAA and hope to get an update next week.

Michael Peevey, president of the California Public Utilities Commission and husband of state Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge), was reappointed to his post last week for another six-year term. The appointment came just one week after the state Senate refused to hold a hearing to reappoint Peevey?s fellow commissioner, Rachelle Chong, who had come under fire from consumer groups for her efforts to deregulate phone services. Opponents of the proposal argued it could be detrimental to low-income residents.

La Cañada voters will find the usual grab bag of topics ranging from reapportionment to gay marriage on the November ballot. The 12 propositions include initiatives, bond issues and mandated reforms in state government, as California continues its tradition of asking the voters to take a major role in determining state policy. Proposition 11, sponsored by California Common Cause, the League of Women Voters and the California Taxpayers Association among others would create a state commission to handle the drawing of district lines for the state Senate, Assembly and Board of Equalization after the next census.

Letters to the Editor Prop. 16 benefits utility : Vote “No” on Proposition 16 — “The PG&E Monopoly Act.” This self-serving proposition is a perfect example of a company buying an election for themselves. They are spending about $35 million to buy deceptive, essentially nonstop TV ads. The fliers will hit our mailboxes soon. Their proposition will enshrine their monopoly in the state Constitution, and for all practical purposes prevent any competition by requiring a two-thirds vote for municipalities (or other community cooperatives)

Having once lived in La Cañada Flintridge for 45 years, now here in Sunland, I wish to propose this idea, both for the city of La Cañada Flintridge and hopefully everywhere on this planet. There is an Earth Day, why not an "Alternative-Renewable Energy Day" too? To this end I tried to contact our state of California officials. I've had no response but silence. So, knowing that the state of Hawaii has a vigorous alternative energy program, I wrote the governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle.

For some, an empty rooftop holds few promises. For La Cañada High School physical science teacher Tom Traeger, it has become the perfect setting for a multifaceted hands-on learning experience in atmospheric conditions, nuclear fusion and solar energy. In 2008, Traeger addressed a five-page grant proposal to energy company BP in which he detailed how he hoped to use an on-campus solar panel to supplement classroom learning for his earth science and physics sections. It would also be a joint collaboration with the school’s environmental science Green Club, he added.

This Saturday it is time for La Cañada closet hippies to join with fellow soul mates across the country in a spiritual connection with Mother Earth.
