    I'm Just Sayin': The necessity of health-care reform

    Making Glendale bike-friendly is a great idea (“Bike-friendly road plan progressing,” Jan. 28). The only problem is that creating bicycle lanes on city streets does not make bicycling safe. Glenoaks has had bike lanes for years, but I would...
  • Political Landscape: Huff plans to hold the line

    Last time a California governor asked voters for a tax increase, Sen. Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) offered his support. That won’t be the case this time. Huff, whose district includes the Montrose Shopping Park and parts of La Crescenta, said this week...
  • Gatto touts road-energy bill

    Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) may have found a new energy source for California — the pavement beneath your car tires. Last week, Gatto introduced Assembly Bill 306, a proposal to launch tests of “piezoelectric” generation of...
