What do Ford, GM and La Cañada Flintridge City Council members have in common? They all want their “fair share” of the federal stimulus package. What does any of this have to do with Manny Ramirez? It’s in the subtext. True, the Dodgers offered Manny too much money in a down economy. True, Manny should have taken the deal. But in this season of trillion dollar bailouts, why can’t the La Cañada Flintridge City Council forgo the $1 million repaving of city streets and donate the money to the Los Angeles Dodgers?

I?m wishing I could take Obama and Romney apart with my little tool kit and use the pieces to rebuild a president with Obama?s professed attitude toward change-for-the-better, Romney?s experience and pragmatism, and somebody?s (Jimmy Carter?s?) understanding that we have to become energy independent now and it better be renewable and less polluting than petroleum. Everything for sale already says ?Green? (Hah) or soon will; but that?s just marketing. What we need is R & D with a vengeance and a timetable.

Letters to the Editor Politicos waltz as the band plays on Legend has it that the orchestra played on the deck of the Titanic as it was sinking and people scrambled to save their lives. This is what comes to mind as I read the statements of state Sen. Carol Liu in the Valley Sun article of Feb. 5, 2009 as she referred to Gov. Schwarzenegger as “governor bankrupt.” As though, like Atlas, he can shrug his shoulders and everything will be solved. She says, “We can’t do it with cuts — we must have new revenue.

NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be seeing some of the economic stimulus funds coming its way to help in Earth science research, according to Congressman Adam Schiff. NASA is expected to get $1 billion, with an unspecified amount of that funding going to the local lab. Schiff hosted a round table discussion on the new economic stimulus package Feb. 20 at Caltech. The purpose of the meeting was to answer some of the questions and to get feedback from local citizens about the package.

The new president’s economic stimulus package may mean money for local transportation, street improvement and sewer needs, at least that’s the hope of local officials. The La Cañada Flintridge City Council Monday night spent about an hour during its study session deciding ranking of items to be sent on to Washington, D.C. for consideration in the as yet undecided list of projects in the Obama stimulus package. Unlike last year’s Bush administration $145 billion stimulus package, which put refund checks in the mail to millions of taxpayers as well as tax relief for businesses, this year, the about $819 billion package — which last week passed the House is being debated this week in its $900 billion version by the Senate, according to the Associated Press — is expected to be distributed between a wide variety of local and national needs.

Construction is expected to continue until mid-next week on Foothill Boulevard between Hillard Avenue and Leata Lane, as part of several street-resurfacing projects scheduled to be completed in coming months across La Cañada Flintridge. Work began Monday as crews began grinding pavement and reconstructing portions of the pavement in need of repairs, said Ying Kwan, city engineer for the city of La Cañada. This coming Monday, crews will begin to construct a leveling course and on Tuesday, a rubberized asphalt will be applied.

Residents of the city’s sewer districts No.s 4, 5, and 6 won’t be asked to vote on proposed Low Pressure System (LPS) sewer hookups for at least another six months, following the City Council’s decision Monday night to abide by a vote delay request from La Cañada Unified School District and the council’s consideration of the pocketbooks of residents due to the recent economic downturn. The school district will ask voters in June to pass a proposed parcel tax, and therefore, requested the city not take a sewer proposal to voters at the same time, as one might make passage of the other less likely, according to a council report.

What we?ll be watching for in the coming year: ?? Mudslides ? More than 4,000 linear feet now line residential streets in La Cañada, and county public works crews are working furiously to keep the city?s 10 debris basins operational, but will it be enough? The Station fire has created perfect conditions for dangerous debris flows. In November, a short deluge sent mud pouring into yards. It all depends on the weather. ?? Station fire investigation ? La Cañada was spared, but the Station fire nevertheless killed two firefighters and destroyed dozens of homes in Big Tujunga Canyon.
