The battle over the future of public transportation in L.A. County will be moving to the ballot in November with a likely vote over a half cent sales tax measure to fund the long-range transit plan. The sales tax measure would raise $700 million in the first year, 2009-10, and is eventually expected to bring in $40 billion over the life of the measure. County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, a member of the Metropolitan Transit Authority board, wants to be sure the proceeds from the tax are fairly distributed across the county before he decides if he will support the measure, an aide told the Valley Sun Monday.

Recent action by the MTA Board of Directors to identify $10 million in funding for the Gold Line Foothill extension will provide a major contribution to the San Gabriel Valley, La Cañada city councilman Dave Spence said this week. The funding will come out of Measure R revenue, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by voters last year. Spence represents the San Gabriel Council of Governments on an MTA committee which oversees the San Gabriel service area, with bus routes as well as rail service.

The so-called "missing link" that could bring transit access to the foothill region will get a study by the MTA, but its future remains open to question. On a motion by Glendale Councilman Ara James Najarian, who represents the north Valley cities on the MTA board, Metro will provide $150,000 for a study looking into how a regional connector could connect the Gold Line with the Red Line subway in North Hollywood. The route would run through Glendale, though alignment and mode is still open for consideration.

When voters go to the polls this November, a great deal of focus will be on the presidential choices, but there are some very important propositions and measures that will also be on the ballot that need an equal amount of scrutiny. One of those important measures, according to La Cañada Flintridge City Councilman Dave Spence, is Measure R, a 30-year tax plan that will generate $40 billion for traffic congestion relief projects in Los Angeles County. L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority are proponents of the bill.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences salutes the year 1904 and its developmental contributions to motion pictures with a program of selected films, "A Century Ago: The Films of 1904," in the Linwood Dunn Theater at the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study in Hollywood on Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. (Fittingly, this will also mark the centennial of special effects pioneer Linwood Dunn's birth.) After years as a technological novelty, interest in the motion picture had waned until the release in 1903 of several popular narrative films, most notably Thomas Edison's "The Great Train Robbery," as well as the important introduction of copyright protection for films that same year.
