Rep. David Dreier and his kind in Congress continue to surrender American sovereignty to over 2,000,000 illegal aliens invading our country per year from Mexico, and lie to us that their puny legislative actions can protect our borders. Dreier's recent mailer boasts that he supports a 11% FY2005 budget increase for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the division of Homeland Security responsible for enforcing U.S. immigration laws in America's interior. Such a miniscule increase is intended to hide the pitiful under-funding of ICE, an agency designed to fail.

A proposal by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission to include La Cañada Flintridge and neighboring Foothills communities in a new state Assembly District that would stretch all the way to San Bernardino County has sparked concerns that the city could lose some of its pull in Sacramento. Currently, La Cañada is part of the 44th Assembly District, which also includes Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena, Arcadia and Temple City. The proposed future San Gabriel Mountain Foothills District, which includes much of the Angeles National Forest, stretches much further east.

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's soundwall study to reduce noise generated by increasing traffic on the 210 Freeway has finally been approved by the state department of transportation, and the city is continuing its effort to find sources of funding for the project, city officials said this week. The funding picture remains a challenge, however, as the city was officially informed last week that $500,000 requested by Rep. David Dreier (R-San Dimas) is not in the federal budget. A Dreier aide explained that the congressman had put the money into a continuing resolution for federal transit funding.

That was an incredible rainstorm we had over the weekend. Our parched earth certainly did need it. The colder temps brought snow to our mountaintops, which is always a beautiful sight. Driving east on the 210 Freeway and seeing the bright white snow-laden Mt. Baldy and Mount San Gorgonio (?Old Greyback? as the California natives call it) in the far distance was very impressive. Just for you trivia lovers ? Mount San Gorgonio, located in the San Bernardino National Forest, is Southern California?
