  • Ron Kaye: A question of legislative grease

    There are no angels in politics, at least not for long. Power corrupts, even a little power, even the illusion of a little power can corrupt. That’s why everyone who gets in the political game becomes tainted to one degree or another or they...

    Glendale City Council candidate not firm on foam ban
    While several City Council candidates said they’d be willing to look into a plastic foam container ban at a campaign forum Thursday night, few would give a direct answer as to whether they would support such a law if elected. Dozens of cities...
  • Ron Kaye: Respect for the Council of Governments

    One of my first impressions when I called the San Fernando Valley my home nearly 30 years ago was that this vast middle-class enclave suffered from a bad inferiority complex, like it was populated by a lot of Rodney Dangerfields who just couldn’t...
  • A Word, Please: Grammar buffs have a friend in politics

    The life of a language columnist can be a lonely one. Picture a head of unwashed hair and a pair of mismatched graying socks protruding from behind a stack of reference books and you'll have a rough snapshot. No one wants to talk to you, lest you rap...
  • Disappointed Quintero will not run for re-election

    Mayor Frank Quintero’s decision not to run for another term on the Glendale City Council is disheartening. Quintero served Glendale very well with pride and dedication to the entire community. Indeed, he was not afraid to stand against the...
  • Pension reform must be tackled

    Gov. Jerry Brown and the Democratic-controlled Legislature claimed a huge victory in a strong bipartisan support for AB340, pension reform. I do not believe a 48-8 vote in the state Assembly and a 38-1 vote in the state Senate, mostly along party lines,...
  • Glendale council loosens some smoking regulations

    The Glendale City Council on Tuesday created a last-minute three-tier system regulating smoking in outdoor dining areas — a move that will increase the number of smokers able to be accommodated at some restaurants. The change to what had initially...
  • Ron Kaye: Eyeing the propositions

    With absolute certainty, I am prepared a month before the election to predict the outcome in California: President Obama will carry the nation's largest state and Democrats will maintain dominance in both houses of the state Legislature. Of course...
  • DVD review: 'The Campaign' is a race to so-so

    DVD review: 'The Campaign' is a race to so-so
    In “The Campaign” — released in August — Will Ferrell (often very funny) shared center stage with Zach Galifianakis (often entirely annoying). Even if Ferrell's not at his very best (which would be “Anchorman”), he's...
  • Congressional reps see 710-extension study differently

    Congressional reps see 710-extension study differently
    The two Democratic members of Congress whose districts would be most affected by a proposed extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway have opposing views of the controversial study of a tunnel connecting the freeway to Pasadena. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey...
  • More voters should decide election

    The Glendale Municipal Election is April 2, and if we experience another poor voter turnout, 25,000 people, or just 16.5% of the potential voters, will elect important city officials. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 151,391 Glendale...
  • Glendale mulls April ballot issues

    Several measures, including one that could make the city treasurer an appointed rather than elected position, have moved closer to being placed on an upcoming ballot. On Tuesday, Glendale City Council members directed the city attorney to bring back...
