1 LOS ANGELES COUNTY Lighting District Ballots What can you get for 61 cents? 1/5 of a gallon of gas! 1/4 of a cup of coffee! Part of a McDonald's cheeseburger! A coke? Not! Or one week of electricity to power your streetlights. If you do not drink cokes, eat cheeseburgers, consume coffee or drive a car, those things cost you nothing! If you do not have street lights in your neighborhood, they also cost you nothing! That sounds like the American way to me! As Mayor of the City of Glendora, I have received a number of questions about the street light assessment ballot recently mailed to property owners in some areas of the city. Because of the confusion expressed by many residents and because of the misinformation being circulated about this issue, I would like to explain exactly what is going on.... single family residence is about 20% less than last year's... assessment. First, the assessment is nothing new. It has been on Glendora property tax bills since about It is paid only by property owners living in areas that have street lights. Property owners living in areas that do not have the lights do not pay an assessment. As I'm sure you know, only about half of the residential streets in Glendora have street lights. About 30 years ago, the issue of who pays for these lights came before the City Council. At that time, it was decided that it was not fair for those who did not have street lights to pay part of the electric bill for those who did. Since most of those living in neighborhoods that did have lights were not willing to give them up, a street light assessment district was formed. This means that the people who have the service agreed to pay for it. Those without lights do not pay for them. This is a Glendora Mayor Doug Tessitor Glendora Lions Club Blood Donors Drive Every 3 seconds someone needs blood, yet less than 5% of the population donates! That is not enough! You can donate if you: * Are in good health * Weight at least 110 pounds * Bring a valid photo I.D. * Are at least 17 years old * Eat a nutritious meal * Have no tattoos within the past 12 months system that has worked well for the past 30 years. However several years ago, the voters approved proposition 218. In order to be in total compliance with this state law, our legal counsel recently advised the city that we needed to seek voter approval of this assessment. Therefore the city has sent a letter and a ballot to each property owner in Glendora's lighting assessment districts. Those owning property in neighborhoods with street lights are being asked to determine if the street lights in their neighborhoods are worth the cost. This year, the proposed street light assessment for a single family residence is or about 61 cents a week. This is 8.54 about 20% less than last year's single family assessment. (Multi-family residential, non-residential and undeveloped properties in areas with street lights are subject to an increased assessment as explained in our earlier mailing.) If property owners in areas with street lights do not wish to continue paying for those lights as they have done for the past 30 years or so, the city will be confronted with approximately 300,000 in street light expenses for which it no longer receives assessment income. If that happens, the City Council will have to consider how to replace the loss of such a large sum of revenue. The most likely action would be a reduction in service; probably turning off the street lights.

Guest Commentary by Alex Berumen Rick Davis, from Long Beach, the paid political strategist for NJD, thinks we are. He thinks that he can play his flute and we, the citizens of Glendora, will follow him out of town like a bunch of mice. He thinks that if he repeats his talking points over and over again we'll begin to believe that what he says is true. He thinks we won't read the initiative. Well think again. Make no mistake; his job is to convince us that destroying our hillside and covering the Glendora Country Club golf course green belt with a Rialto-Fontana style highdensity housing project will be a good thing for Glendora. But, of course, he doesn't explain what's good about it. He would also have you believe that we should appreciate the kind gesture from NJD of 10 million dollars that the initiative implies will be endowed to the city. Just you wait and see, he'll soon begin bombarding us over and over with this concept of 10 million dollars. The Tribune quoted him as saying, "I'm happy voters in Glendora will have a chance to vote on the Hillside Protection Initiative because it includes permanent protection of the foothills on the 400 acres of open space", "and a 10 million endowment to the city". What did I tell you! There it is! 10 million endowment to the City! What a crock of bandini. And what about, "it includes permanent protection of the foothills" what? Even I The Heat Is On: Crackdown on DUI and the Unlicensed! Hundreds of Arrests and Car Impounds Expected To Continue DUI crackdowns will be in place across Los Angeles County throughout this summer, sending a red-hot warning to drivers operating motor vehicles under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, that they will not be tolerated on Southland streets and highways. The summer-long, countywide crackdowns start Saturday, June 24, with intensified enforcement through DUI SAN DIMAS This summer, the City of San Dimas Parks and Recreation Department is offering a morning "Teen City" program at the San Dimas Student Union. Teen City is supervised by trained Recreation Leaders who will provide activities including games, sports, snacks and crafts. Field trips will be available for know that you don't dig it up, turn over, tear down trees, put a parking lot and tennis courts and a 30,000 sq ft club house on it, equipment storage, etc., then say you are permanently protecting it. A more simple idea would be to put a fence up and a no trespassing sign, then you'll have it protected. But I digress. On to the 10 million dollar lie. The following is an excerpt from the initiative on page 3, Section Five Legislative Findings and Purposes: Paragraph F. "Should the City agree to act expeditiously in approving the Project once this initiative becomes law, some of the current landowners and potential developers have agreed in concept to the creation of a privatelyfunded, independently run and administered, approximately 10 million endowment to fund a variety of City programs and has also agreed in concept to providing approximately one half of one percent of the sales proceeds (on a per house basis, for re-sales) of the Infill Residential Project to replenish and fund the endowment. These programs are similar to programs that exist in adjacent cities but greatly exceed what the City could impose unilaterally on the developer, and the people hereby declare that these programs are tremendous public benefits that justify the City supporting the project in an expeditious manner. " It's very interesting that text of the initiative quoted above does not actually CREATE the additional fee. Teen City is for youth in 6th - 9th grades. Teen City will be held at the Student Union located in the San Dimas Swim and Racquet Club, 990 W. Covina Blvd., San Dimas from 7 a.m. -12 p.m. Teen City will run for ten weeks, from June 26 - September1 and cost 30 per week per individual. Enrollment is limited, so register early. B1 fund nor does it REQUIRE or MANDATE creation of such a fund if the initiative is adopted. Note too, that IF such a fund IS created, the money would NOT be given to the City. If created at all, the fund would be "independently" run and administered, i.e., it would be run and administered by someone other than those elected to the City Council by residents of Glendora. So who decides how best to spend the money? One more very important fact to note, that some landowners and potential developers have agreed only in CONCEPT to create such a fund and even that would be subject to the City acting "expeditiously" to approve the Project. Presumably the landowners and potential developers are the ones who decide just how "expeditiously" the city had acted and whether it was "expeditious" enough to merit creating the fund. It doesn't really advise who these "current landowners and potential developers" are, does it? Sounds like a bunch of empty words that say nothing to me. How about you? The bottom line is that the initiative itself including the text quoted above is what becomes law, if adopted by the voters. They (the lawyers for NJD) wrote these words for the initiative. Don't let Rick Davis tell you that the wording will be fixed later to make it clear. That won't happen. Glendora be informed. saturation patrols and checkpoints.

David Dreier is thanking the Well folks, they are out there among us. They are all over the place. Some may try to take over our jobs and even try to run this country. When I see some of them, it can be rather scary. For the most part, I wish them well. I wish all of the 2006 graduating students the best. Most of these young folks plan to join the workforce and some plan on going to college. For right now, most of them are looking for some time off from school and to kick back and have a good time. Some parents have a lot to look forward to. They can t wait to return home after a few days to find out that there was this big party at the house while they were gone. Ya know, one of those belated grad parties. It would have not been so bad if they had cleaned up all those beer cans and the rest of the mess they left behind. The parents look forward to a fun summer. Not that the new graduates have a lot to do but hang around the house and have their friends come over or anything like that. The parents are looking forward to always looking for that cordless phone, the TV remote and wondering where all that extra food is going. How great it must be for the parents to know that their son, who has graduated, will be home for awhile and that they can help around the house. They can finally have time to clean their room and maybe even help around the yard... That is if they get up before noon. Ahhhh yes... when he finally gets up, what a treat it must be. Hopefully it will be that day of the week for that young man to takes a shower. Most likely, when he gets up he will head for the refrigerator to get his wake up drink right out of the milk carton. After the first couple of gulps, there is a pause, George Ogden That s just the way it is! just long enough for him to catch his breath and to burp loudly and then for him to continue with a couple of more gulps of milk, before replacing the open carton back into the refrigerator. If you are lucky, as he leaves the kitchen, he may head back to his bedroom to catch a quick nap. Ya know, he already has had a rough few minutes. Dad has taught him well. Soon, you may find him roaming around the house in a daze in the mid to late afternoon. Soon he will ask for the keys to go to friend s house. As a loving parent, you give in and give him the keys to the family car. When he returns, you are delighted to find he has used all the gas and has brought back a number of friends. He has some great friends; they know right where the refrigerator is located. They all hang out and play video games as they also take over the family computer. They get on to MySpace to hook up with friends, make new friends and to tease with those middle aged perverts and pedophiles who are looking for young teen girls and boys with which to hook up. Yes, it will be a fun summer, but soon it will be all over. Getting a job or going to college and those summer days will be gone. They will be just memories for the parents. They can t help but remember when they were graduating teens, way back when. Ahhh, those were the good old days. That s Just the Way It Is! voters for keeping him in office and for what? His occupancy in the Congress, in this writers opinions, is one of the biggest calamities of his political career along with his majority of Republicans following each other like hand picked Mushrooms in a dark room. Dreier's inability to right our ship listing heavily in a sea of discontent has become a disaster around the world. No thanks to him, comes one of the largest debts this country has ever encountered in the history of these United States. The Iraq war which he has supported over the years is just another example of his inability correct an ill that has plagued this country. Polls now show near 70% of the American voter has said enough is enough and that war has our American soldiers caught in a war that has already lost 2500 and every day it keeps rising. When Republican Tom Delay was caught with his fingers in the till of American money, Dreier made no attempt to improve the integrity of the congress he serves and actually voted to eliminate a panel necessary to police actions of wrong doing among his colleagues. It should also be noted when Congresswoman Pelosi caught one of her own Democratic congressman William Jefferson hiding 90, dollars in a freezer, he was reprimanded for his actions. David Dreier will get my support when he steps up to plate and starts representing his constituents rather than those well paid lobbyists who have managed to persuade his poor judgements in the past with their Wheel Barrows full of money. Worse yet, are those voters and their own poor judgement about the fact of them not knowing more about the credentials of their candidates. Let's start thinking that our legislators work for you and I who are their employers. Milford C. Walker West Covina WC 50,000 Reward for Arrest in Double Homicide In the early morning hours of Sunday, November 20, 2005 a backyard party was being enjoyed by attendees in the 2200 block of James Ave in West Covina. Robert Ruiz 23, of La Puente and Adam Rodriguez 20, of West Covina were among those in attendance. As the party continued, someone opened fire killing Ruiz and Rodriguez. Two other persons at the party were also shot, but survived. The Police Department investigation revealed that although many were in attendance at that time of the shooting, many more fled the scene prior to police arrival. Exhaustive interviews of those who remained have failed to result in the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible. Interviews have also failed to identify other witnesses who were present, although detectives know there were dozens more in attendance that may have valuable information but are reluctant to come forward. In an effort to provide an incentive for those with informa- tion to come forward, the West Covina City Council at the June 6, 2006 City Council meeting, approved a 50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those persons responsible for these murders. In addition, the Dynamic Group of Companies in West Covina has matched the award with an additional 25,000, making the total reward 75,000. "The West Covina City Council will continue to support any and all means to find the perpetrator (s) responsible for Adam and Robert's death. The anger towards people who commit crimes like this is great, and even though we know nothing we do can bring Adam and Robert back, we hope that this reward will bring the perpetrator (s) to justice," stated Mayor Steve Herfert.

3 J.J. McDonough let his politics blind him to what Jesus REALLY taught. Jesus DID NOT condone violating the legitimately established laws of nations that got their authority to govern from God. Immigration laws are in this category. Jesus DID NOT condone aiding and abetting ILLEGALS who flood into a LEGALLY established, SOVEREIGN nation, overtaxing its medical, educational and other resources to the point that it can't adequately serve its own people. Jesus DID NOT approve assisting ILLEGALS who forge documents, steal the identities of citizens, and deprive others of their jobs by lowering wages so that LEGAL residents can't afford to hold those jobs anymore. And what about ILLEGALLY COMMENTARY The Silent Invasion It started with a few. Then hundreds. Then thousands. Then MIL- LIONS per year! They are the ILLEGAL ALIENS! In 1986, we THOUGHT President Reagan and Congress had SOLVED this problem. They gave BLANKET AMNESTY to some 3 million ILLEGALS. They passed laws to strengthen our borders and PUN- ISH those who would hire FU- TURE ILLEGALS. But, alas! Our government has betrayed us! They REFUSED to enforce the 1986 law. Not only that, but NOW President Bush and our TURN-COAT SENATE want to REWARD the 12-to-20 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS who have INVADED our country, with AMNESTY, A FAST TRACK TO CITIZENSHIP and a WORK PROGRAM, all of which place ILLEGALS well ahead of applicants from other countries who follow the rules, and want to enter our country LEGALLY! Our own misdirected Cardinal Roger Mahoney claims :"We should follow the teachings of Christ, and welcome the stranger." That's true. But apparently, the good Cardinal -- like Louis XIII's own Richelieu -- has "jumping ahead of foreigners who have waited YEARS to LE- GALLY enter the U.S?" Is THIS what JESUS TAUGHT?! Thank God that Catholics have to obey their Church ONLY in matters of FAITH and MORALS -- and DON'T have to accept the SO- CIALIST DICTATES of its prelates, whose politics are based on SECULAR and ATHEISTIC philosophies... both of which -- contrary to Separation of Church and State -- are becoming the MANDATED RELIGIONS of our land! What does Mexico think of all this support they are getting from our Turn-Coat Government, misdirected clergy, et al? I love to quote Mexican sources whenever I can, to enlighten you to the SOURCE of propaganda influencing many clueless Americans. Perhaps Jose Perez-Espino and Francisco Barrados said best what Mexico thinks of us Americans, in their April 10, 2006 flash animation on the web site: eluniversal.com.mx/graficos/ animados/mexican_power.html. Although titled "Mexican Power" in English, the piece is in Spanish. The authors point out that there are 25 million Hispanics in the U.S (50% illegal!).... and they sent almost 20 BIL- B3 LION back to Mexico last year! They bragged about the April and May Day ILLEGAL ALIEN UP- RISINGS in 70 U.S. cities, demanding legalization for 11 million ILLEGALS. We all know that ILLEGALS have NO rights ANYWHERE in the world (except the U.S.?)! They also bragged that the states of California, Texas, Arizona and Colorado have become MEXICANIZED. And hinted that soon the rest of the U.S. will be MEXICANIZED! They show the NUMBER of "Mexicanizers" in every state of the Union. If U.S. Easterners don't think this is a problem for them, they'd better check-out this website! Parez-Espino and Barrados insist that Mexico still owns Aztlan (the Southwestern U.S.), and considers legal, illegal emigrants and their descendants to be MEXICANS... REGARD- LESS OF CITIZENSHIP! They don't care about contributing to the U.S. economy or being a Nation of Immigrants. They completely disregard DIVER- SITY... and emphasize MEXI- CAN POWER in the United States! Let's face it, Folks. Mexico considers the ENTIRE UNITED STATES as the Northern Province of Mexico. And, apparently, Presidente Jorge del Arbusto and the United States Senate agree with them. As for Cardinal Mahoney and the U.S. bishops: France's Louis XIII had his Richelieu. Presidentes Zorro y del Arbusto have their Cardinal Mahoney and American bishops, who DON'T have GUTS enough to tell THE MEXICAN GOV- ERNMENT to put ITS own house IN ORDER, so THEIR OPPRESSED people don't have to violate U.S. sovereignty to support their families! Our only hope for continued national sovereignty is for the U.S. House of Representatives to defeat the Senate's OUTRA- GEOUS immigration bill, and DEMAND that the PREVIOUS HOUSE BILL be adopted. If the senate bill wins... what can I say? I have designed a flag for the NEW United States, which I described in a previous column. I'd be happy to provide copies for you... AT A PRICE!

Marmac Repertory Theater Presents Steel Magnolias The Marmac Repertory Theater Company, a non-profit professional theater company was founded in June, 2004, by Richard and Genine Macaluso, along with their daughter and son-inlaw, Clara and Jeff Martinez. This is the beginning of their third season of entertaining with some of the San Gabriel Valley's great plays performed by some of the greatest talent available. Already, some of the area s businesses have signed on as Marmac sponsors and anyone interested in becoming a sponsor would be appreciated. This is the first directorship for Virginia Williams, who is collaborating with Douglas Clayton with "Steel Magnolias", the first play performance for the 2006 season will run from June 9th and June 10th starting at 8:00 pm, and June 16th and 17th at 8:00pm, June 11th and 17th at 2:00pm. General admission is 16.00, and for senior citizens, students with I.D. and children under 13 are admitted for If you put together a group of 10 or more, the admission is per person. To order your tickets, call (626) or on line at You can also order your season tickets now and include "Annie Get Your Gun" starting August 4th and the ending performance on August 13th at 2:00pm, and then "It's A Wonderful Life" from December 8th through Decem- Bill Singleton ber 17th at 2:00pm. The Marmac also sponsors and conducts a 2nd Annual Directors, Teachers and Students Academy from June 19th through June 30th. Last year s Marmac Youth Performing Arts Academy enrolled 21 children from ages 6 through 14. This academy develops skills in performing arts, dance, voice, music and technical theater. Then on October 28th, 2006, "Give My Regards", which is a Broadway revue show and is also a fundraiser for Azusa Pacific University. These tickets can be ordered by calling the APU box office at (626) The performance of "Steel Magnolias" that my wife and I attended on opening night, June 9th, 2006, was a great treat and very enjoyable. The actors and actresses were superb and all those in attendance were treated to one of the area s most enjoyable and entertaining evenings they could have attended. The "Steel Magnolias" was first performed in 1989, and directed by Herbert Ross and included performances by Dolly Parton, Sally Fields, Shirley Maclaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts and Tom Skerritt as the main characters. This is quite a group of famous television and movie performers who are well known today. The plot revolves around a beauty parlor owned by Truvy in a little Louisiana town called Chinquapin where all the characters meet for their beauty services. The Marmac performers who performed "Steel Magnolias" and their character rolls were Truvy, the owner played by Brooke Wood, Annelle, the new hairdresser played by Kelly Decker, Claree, the wealthy older woman played by Lee An Moore, Shelby, the young daughter played by Stephanie Reibel, Shelby's mother M'Lynn, played by Lauren Letherer and Quiser, the coverall wearing eccentric played by Terra Shelman. This great cast performed superbly and the evening s entertainment kept you laughing and waiting for the next character change. The stage backdrops and props were great and when the lights were dimmed to make changes, the stagehands handled the prop changes fast and efficient. There is a 15 minute intermission between acts I and acts II where you can get up, stretch and purchase a snack. The seating arrangements at the Marmac are inclined and there isn't a bad seat in the house. When you arrive and purchase your ticket, an usher shows you directly to your seat. This is a first class theater with first class scheduling and performers. You don't have to drive a long distance to see a Broadway type play with Broadway rated performers. You won't be disappointed when you attend and bring your friends to see a performance at the Marmac. The "Steel Magnolia" first performance drew quite a crowd, including many members of the Glendora Red hat Society, 22 in all, with most members involved in crafts, arts and toll painting. There are presently 5 different Red Hat groups located in Glendora. Plan to bring your family or club group, call and make your reservations and attend an evening of great entertainment. With the scheduling of top rated Broadway plays and performers, especially the next one, "Annie Get Your Gun" in August, you have time to organize your group or family members to see a great re-enactment of a famous Broadway play. You won't be disappointed and I can't wait for the next great play. My wife and I have attended performances at the Candlelight Pavilion Dinner Theater in Claremont, and enjoy both the performances and the atmosphere, and with the passing years of the Marmac and their quality plays, there will develop a true rivalry. The owners of the Claremont Candlelight Pavilion, the Bollinger family, have expressed their gratitude and willingness to work hand in hand with the Marmac Theater in the future. Within a short time, the Covina Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Covina will also be scheduling the Broadway type plays along with other types of entertainment, and will give the San Gabriel Valley area three venues for first rate entertainment. You won't have to drive to Los Angeles or Hollywood, and spend time on the freeways with the scheduling, maturity and opening of these entertainment centers. This area will take on the title of Broadway West. Advertise in the San Gabriel Valley

4 B4 COMMENTARY Maybe Congress Should Go Home Just when you thought that Congress couldn't be more stupid or cause any more damage, to borrow a phrase from Ronald Reagan, "there they go again." As we have learned from past experience, in an election year, Congress doesn't legislate, it plays politics. And this month has, so far, provided great examples of this irresponsible behavior. Months after the fake debate about port security, in which Congress scapegoated Dubai instead of addressing the real issues that would protect US ports, it appeared that they might finally get serious. In April, they passed an amendment to an emergency appropriation bill that would have dramatically increased funding for Coast Guard operations and container inspection. Last week, however, Senate and House negotiators deleted the 648 million in increased spending for port security from the same emergency bill. Thus, it appears that despite the heated rhetoric and the abuse hurled at Dubai, the fury was not really about security-it was political posturing. Points were scored and the game moves on-leaving our ports no better off than before. One more example of this disgraceful posturing occurred this Washington Watch DR. JAMES Z. ZOGBY week with yet another fake debate, this one over the war in Iraq. In a brazen effort to back Democrats into a corner, the House Republican leadership forced a vote on a resolution linking a US victory in Iraq with victory with the global war on terror. Riding high on the killing of al-qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al- Zarqawi and yet another of the President's "mission almost accomplished" moments, Republican debaters repeatedly goaded Democrats to choose between al-qaeda or America. They repeatedly linked the war to 9-11, telling Democrats that if they voted against the measure their "cut and run" attitude would show voters where they really stood on the war on terror. And so three years after the war began, with 2,500 US troops and more than 30,000 Iraqi civilians killed, with Iraq in shambles still edging toward civil war and with US prestige at an all-time low worldwide, instead of a real debate about the logic of that got us into the war and a critique of its execution, we were left with a charade and the game of politics at its worst. Much the same can be said about the standoff that continues to plague consideration of immigration reform. While the Senate responsibly set out to reach a compromise that would both fix the broken immigration system and while providing a realistic solution to the plight of the US's estimated 12 million undocumented workers, the House Republican leadership refuses to support any form of compromise. Rebuffing the President and the Senate Republican leadership, both of whom favor compromise, hard-liners in the House prefer playing politics with the issue. This, in all likelihood, spells doom for chances at immigration reform this year. Maybe the lowest blow of all is yet to come. Having already passed an extreme measure last month that punished not just Hamas, but all Palestinians entities (denying not only aid, but visas and even the right to maintain an office to the Palestinian Authority (PA), the entire PLO, and even non-hamas elected Palestinian Legislative Council members), last week some members of Congress positioned themselves to do even more damage. On June 6th, a bi-partisan group of members began to circulate for co-sponsorship a resolution entitled, "Condemning the Persecution of Palestinian Christians by the Palestinian Authority." The bill, which now has 13 co-sponsors, is nothing more than a malicious act of incitement. While correctly noting that Palestinian society is in disarray and that the percentage of Christians in Palestine has dropped significantly in the past several decades, the Congressmen proposing the legislation absolve the repressive nature of Israel's occupation policies and falsely accuse the PA. The drafters of the bill acknowledge that in crafting their resolution they relied on the writing of an Israeli researcher working for a Jerusalem-based center founded by notorious Likudnik hard-liner Dore Gold. Palestinian Christians were not consulted, nor were any of the major religious bodies in the West with ties to their coreligionists in Palestine. The reaction of both the Palestinian Christian community and the Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox leadership in the US has been a swift and strong denunciation of the dangerous, meddlesome and false bill. Letters from leaders of the Christian community in Bethlehem to the bill's sponsors, note that the plight of the Christian community is best explained by the strangulation of Palestinian society resulting from occupation, the 25-foot high wall built on Palestinian-owned land, the severing of Palestinians from Jerusalem and the theft of Palestinian lands for the construction of fortress-like Israeli settlement communities that have had a profoundly negative impact on Palestinian Christians and Muslims alike.

Why? Because all else pales into insignificance when the stakes of that war are properly evaluated. And this is not meant to lend a false sense of drama to the situation. I happen to sincerely believe that our civilization is threatened; indeed, I believe that it is distinctly possible that we are living in the twilight of Western Civilization, and that our country is so polarized as to seriously impair our ability to do what is necessary to preserve our way of life. Worse yet, the Democrats are so eager to regain power - an understandable objective - that they have lost all sense of purpose when it comes to national security, downplaying either or both the war or the manner in which it is being waged at every opportunity. One of the more repellant ways was Gore Vidal's recent statement to the effect that the war on terror was like a war on dandruff, no doubt an effort on the part of this somewhat arrogant, abrasive, anti -American elitist (effetist?) to trivialize the nature of the threat Ken Eliasberg posed by radical Islam. It is this kind of treasonous stupidity that will bring us to our knees, and my colleague J.J. McDonough is right on the money when he uses the expression "useful idiot" to describe people of this nature, including our local idiot who took him to task for doing so. By the way the expression "useful idiot" was coined by Lenin to describe the necessary support of agents of the host country who willingly participate in their own country's demise. So much for introductions; henceforth, I shall try to give equal time to both domestic and foreign matters. You can, of course, understand how I might regard survival as a transcendental concern; dead people have no rights or concerns and vanquished societies need pay only modest attention to matters of a domestic nature. In any event, while I intend to deal with education at some length down the road, a couple of events that have transpired while I was immersed in immigration, Iraq, and Islam are of particular interest to me. The first is Larry Summer's unpleasant experience at Harvard, once the pinnacle of education in this country; the second is the recent effort to socially promote about 50,000 of our High School seniors even though they failed to pass the appropriate exit exams. Let's look at the Summers fiasco first. Larry Summers, a very bright liberal, replaced Bob Rubin as Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury, and, while I might take issue with Summers and Rubin on certain policy matters, I have nothing but respect for each of them. These guys are intellectual heavyweights with pedigree and class and among the very few Clinton appointments for whom I had a high regard. Summers had a distinguished academic background, which included a tour at Harvard. So, when Harvard picked him to succeed Neil L. Rudenstine as the 27th president of Harvard University, I was neither surprised nor disappointed. On the contrary, I was pleased. And when Summer's first acts demonstrated that he was genuinely concerned with scholarship, as opposed to the more typical presidential function of fund raising, I was delighted. Harvard is - or at least has been - our academic flagship, but, like the rest of academia it has fallen under the spell of liberal feel goodism with a commensurate drop in its academic substance. Summers was bent on restoring the reasons for its reputation. Poor fellow, was he in for a shock - a fatal one as it turned out. The path of his departure was paved by the following 3 events: 1. He had the temerity to ask Cornell West, a pretentious pedant, to engage in some serious scholarship (as opposed to preparing a rap album and helping Al Sharpton, a shameless political hack, with his campaign for President - my God, how did it come to the point where an unscrupulous buffoon like Sharpton could even entertain such a prospect). 2. At a gathering of scholars looking into the question of why there were many more men in the higher realms of math and science, Summers made the unpardonable mistake of suggesting that the group might want to explore the possiblitiy - just the possibility, mind you - that perhaps men and women were hard wired differently - duh! - and perhaps this might have something to do with it. 3. Finally, the poor deluded man suggested that it might be a good idea to raise the level of scholarship at one of our nation's most prestigious universities by making the students earn honors, rather than just doling them out, i.e., better than 90% of Harvard seniors receive honors (in my day, you had to earn honors; they were not entitlements, and, as a result, only 5 or 10% of the class were honors students - made sense to me - you see my father had the quaint idea that self esteem was not a gratuity; you don't appreciate something unless you've earned it). CORNEL WEST - Let's deal with Cornel West first. Cornel West was, at the time of the dispute in question, one of approximately 15 professors who Please turn to ACADEMIA / B12

5 Giovanni's Ristorante Goes International! By Michelle A. Bart COVINA Giovanni's Ristorante in Covina has been a hit for locals for many years, but it wasn't until the turn of the century that Giovanni's became known as one of the best Italian Bistro's in the state of California! The ongoing success of this quaint and romantic "ristorante" is due in part to the successful partnership of husband and wife team, Linda and George Peterson. Linda Peterson had a traditional job commuting back and forth to Los Angeles as an executive, supplying chain stores with gourmet grocery items. With the day beginning at 6am and not rolling into home until way after 6pm; the days were long and sleep was hindered. George Peterson has owned and operated G & K Distributing for over twenty years. G & K began in 1985 in Los Angeles, and George, too, found himself commuting each day until moving the company to the City of Industry. G & K is a specialty produce import and export company that sells produce throughout the United States and Canada. Both Linda and George both had plenty of experience in food, hospitality, and business and both knew they wanted something closer to home and fun to experience! For many years on their way home from their jobs, the Petersons would find themselves stopping for dinner several times during the week at Giovanni's in Covina. "Linda was getting tired of the commute to L.A. every day and she always wanted to own her own restaurant, so in 2000 our friends Monique and Jacques decided to retire and we decided now was the time and we purchased Giovanni's and have never looked back," said George Peterson. Throughout the years, Linda Peterson has added special touches including a new menu that combines regional Italian cuisine with some creative adaptions of International favorites. " We want to give our customers an adventure in flavor," said Linda Peterson. "Some of the traditional dishes take on a bit of extraordinary, served with baby vegetables and fresh asparagus, or fresh fish served on a bed of Baby Spinach," said Peterson. Specialties, in addition to fresh pasta, include: deep fried bread with garlic and herbs, homemade Italian Sausage, Ciopinnio, Veal Stew, Osso Bucco and Risotto, and Paella, (direct from Spain is offered nightly). Dinner at "Giovanni's" is designed to satisfy any budget and any occasion from a quick meal after work, to a casual dinner with friends or a "special evening out." Entrees priced from include soup of the day or green salad with a choice of dressing. Some of the special entrees include the Signature Filet Mignon, Stuffed Pork Chops, Lamb Shank, Rack of Lamb, Osso Bucco, and many other International favorites! It's no wonder that Giovanni's has been awarded the top "3 Stars" presented by the California Restaurant Writers Association for its superb innovative Italian Cuisine and a "3 Stars" award for their extensive and moderately priced wine list. When not running their current businesses the Petersons can be found contributing time and money to: Covina Downtown Business Association, Soroptimist International of Azusa/ Glendora, Covina Center for the Performing Arts, and many charitable events. George Peterson is also keeping busy working on reopening after fifty years the "Sugar Bowl" a 50's diner. It's safe to say, preserving Covina's nostalgic memories and the taste buds of patrons has become the calling card of the Petersons. What was once a favorite to many, the Peterson's pick up the pieces and carry on the history to keeping the memories alive and keeping the flavors of Covina savoring for future years to come!

So, this is the best time to become even more water aware. Much of the water in Southern California is imported. The water is brought in from either Northern California or the Colorado River. Your local retailer also provides some water from local resources -- primarily groundwater basins. The water you receive is usually a blend of water sources. Like most natural resources, water is limited in supply. Of all the water on the earth, only 1% is suitable for consumption and personal use. The reliability we have all grown accustomed to is dependent on us all doing our part to conserve; as the population increases, the overall amount of water remains constant. Some water saving tips: Check sprinklers -- fix broken or misaligned heads Check your irrigation controller -- is it watering too often? If you step on your grass and it springs back up, it does not need more water. Consider watering one day less a week. Consider a swimming pool cover -- it saves on evaporation, keeps the pool cleaner, cuts down on the amount of chemicals needed and can be safer than an open pool.

6 B6 In A Nutshell What s up in the Economy? KEN HERMAN Glendora Councilman FINANCIAL Financial: Ask Julia Julia Yoder next 5 years! Do I need a lot of money to put into that investment you talked about last week that will give me a 12% bonus? For Qualified funds, (money you haven't paid taxes on that is growing tax-deferred) you need 2,000 to start. For Non-Qualified funds (money you've already paid taxes on, you need 5,000. This investment grows tax-deferred - you'll pay taxes later as you take the money out. A relative passed and I was the beneficiary on her life insurance. I'd like to give some to my charity, but I'd also like to keep as much of the money as possible. I don't need the money now, but I might like to be able to use some of it when I retire in about 8 years. Is there a way to do this? Please accept my condolences - sorry for your loss. Here's the good news, and I'm Reverse Mortgage What A Difference A Month Makes In recent months, I have argued that the economy was at the brink of slower, and perhaps much slower, growth. That forecast was based on rising interest rates, high energy prices, slowing home sales and home price appreciation. There is now ample evidence that this is indeed occurring. For the past 3 years, the economy has been growing strongly. Meanwhile, inflation has been very tame. But these favorable conditions are now shifting. Economic growth is slowing and inflation is accelerating, reviving talk of stagflation. However, growth is only slowing, not stalling out and while inflation is rising it is still relatively low. Where We've Been Over the past 5 years, one of the primary generators of economic growth has been robust home sales and construction. Total home sales set successive records in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and Homebuilders responded by pushing single-family home construction to successive record levels in 2003, 2004, and Because the rapid expansion in home sales preceded the response in homebuilding by a full Readers, I need your help. Please recommend an attorney you know is great at helping folks with their Trusts. Right now, I need one in the Glendora/ San Dimas area. My contact information is at the end of this column. In last week's article, you said there's a company I could invest with that gives a 10% - 12% bonus on my money. How can they do this? They have certain requirements. They "cap" (put a limit on) the amount of growth your investment dollars you can receive. Let's say you allocate your money to the S & P and Nasdaq rather than to the Fixed account. If the S & P and/or Nasdaq go up 5% and your cap happens to be at 2.5%, your growth is 2.5% and the company keeps the difference of 2.5%. Also, they establish a "penalty for early withdrawal" called a Surrender Fee. They require you to let your investment grow for a minimum amount of years and take it out over a minimum number of years. They're pretty positive that, given the 5, 10, or 15 years that you have your money invested with them, they will make up that "Bonus" they gave you up front. And remember, they give you this 10% - 12% bonus, not only on the initial investment, but also on any money you add to the account for the 3 years, the demand for new homes greatly outpaced the supply of new homes. Consequently, home prices appreciated at record rates. Soaring home price appreciation, combined with the introduction of innovative mortgage products and aggressive lending by mortgage bankers, led to a huge increase in home equity extraction. An increasing number of households tapped the rapidly rising equity in their homes to finance a spending spree well beyond the gains in their disposable income. Meanwhile, capital spendingwhich plunged in 2001 and finally started to accelerate in 2004 and However, it never attained the strength that it had in the late 1990s. Moreover, relative to record profits and profit margins, extremely low borrowing rates, and rising capacity utilization, capital spending is still quite subdued. Where We Are But rising interest rates and high energy costs are finally having an effect on economic activity. Home sales peaked last summer and have been on a gentle, if irregular, decline ever since then. Although homebuilders did not respond immediately to this slowdown in sales, they eventually reacted, causing housing starts to plunge in recent months. When home sales were stronger than housing construction, home price appreciation accelerated. Home sales are now weaker than housing construction. This is leading to a sharp deceleration in the pace of home price appreciation. Home prices are still rising, but at a much, much slower pace than just 6 or 12 months ago. With slower growth in home price appreciation, consumers have greatly reduced the pace of home equity extraction. This, in turn, has led to a deceleration in consumer spending, a slowdown that has been aggravated by stubbornly high energy prices. Higher short-term interest rates are also increasing monthly mortgage payments for those homeowners with adjustable rate sure you'll like this. There's a way for you to give to your charity and to have more than you started with. For the sake of easy math, let's say you received 100,000. If you give 10% to your charity, you are left with 90,000. Invest your money in this bonus product I've been talking about and receive a 12% bonus (for a limited time; otherwise a 10% bonus) on the 90,000 and now you have 100,800 in your investment. (Even at the 10% bonus, you'd have 99,000.) Oh, and don't forget the tax deduction for donating to a charity! I know tax-time is a long ways off, but is there anything I can do to make tax-time less stressful? Well, I don't know what specifically makes tax-time stressful for you. For most, it's the panic of gathering all the paperwork - receipts, statements, etc. To relieve the majority of this stress, get organized now. You already have almost 6 months worth of mess to sort out, so it's time to get started. An Expandable File works well, divided into months. For others, it's better to have large envelopes for categories of tax-deductions. If you take a couple of minutes each day, or once a week, to file your receipts, it'll really pay off. In Please turn to FINANCIAL / B11 mortgages. These higher mortgage payments will further pressure already heavily indebted households. Weaker consumer spending and homebuilding have forced businesses to slow their pace of new job creation. In 2005, businesses hired an average of 152,000 new workers per month. Through the first 5 months of 2006, they added only 138,000 new hires per month. With fewer new jobs being created, income gains are also slowing, putting even more pressure on consumers. Slower home building, slower consumer spending, and slower job creation are clear and present signs that the pace of economic activity is decelerating. Confirmation of this slowdown also comes from a number of other indicators: a flat-to-inverted yield You ve worked hard to own your home, now let it work for you!* Receive Payments instead of making them Use money for home repairs, buying a car whatever you choose!

The evidence for slower growth is overwhelming. At the same time, there is substantial evidence that inflation is accelerating. In 2005, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 3.4%, up from 1.9% in 2003 and matching its highest level since So far this year, consumer inflation is running at a 5.2% annual rate. Soaring energy prices have accounted for a substantial portion of this acceleration. But even core inflation has accelerated. After registering a 1.5% advance in 2003, the core CPI rose by 1.8% in 2004 and 2.2% in Since the beginning of the year, core consumer inflation has risen at a 3.1% annual rate.

11 Difference A Month Makes Continued from / B6 Financial Ask Julia Continued from / B6 The Fed's Dilemma Ben Bernanke, the new chairman of the Federal Reserve System, recently said that " core inflation measured over the past three to six months has reached a level that, if sustained, would be at or above the upper end of the range that many economists, including myself, would consider consistent with price stability." He is clearly worried about the recent pace of core inflation. Even more worrisome to Fed officials is that inflationary expectations are now slowly deteriorating. If inflationary expectations do deteriorate, then faster inflation becomes self-perpetuating. This would damage the Fed's hard earned inflation-fighting credibility. The FOMC is committed to NOT letting that happen. This combination of slowing growth and accelerating inflation poses a dilemma for the Fed. On the one hand, they don't want the economy to slow too far and potentially risk falling into recession. This would argue for not raising short-term interest rates much further, if at all. On the other hand, they don't want inflation to rise any further and risk deterioration in inflationary expectations and even higher inflation. That would make it more difficult (and costly in terms of economic weakness) to get inflation back down to acceptable levels. This would argue for raising shortterm interest rates a bit further. These are just two of the conceptual problems that the Fed faces. There are also several practical problems, most notably in the many lags that are involved in monetary policymaking. Lags, Lags, and More Lags Among the many tricky practical issues that the Fed has to deal with is that changes in monetary policy do not instantaneously affect economic activity. Rather, as Milton Friedman, the 1976 winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, demonstrated years ago, "monetary policy operates with long and variable lags." At present, the economy is beginning to slow. This is exactly what the Fed has been forecasting although it seems that the slowdown is coming a little sooner and a bit more sharply than they anticipated. However, inflation-especially the core inflation measures that the Fed watches most closely-continues to rise. We know that slower economic growth will not immediately lead to slower inflation. Inflation generally does not peak until about a year after the economy has started to slow. So, inflation could continue to rise for another 9 to 12 months before peaking. What to Do? The Fed believes that much of the economy's marvelous performance over the past 10 years-rapid economic growth and soaring productivity with only a single mild, brief recession-was largely due to getting inflation down to levels where it was a only minor factor in consumer, business, and investor decision making. This belief in the primacy of containing inflation will bias the Fed more toward restraining inflation than in promoting economic growth in the short-run. Moreover, because rising inflation generally has substantial momentum and is also a lagging economic indicator, the Fed will likely continue to raise short-term interests a bit further. The Fed can take comfort in the fact that although the economy is slowing it is not collapsing and the risks of a recession are fairly low. Indeed, solid productivity growth, a measured adjustment in the housing market, decent gains in personal income that will sustain modest consumer spending, and solid growth in capital spending, exports, and government purchases indicate that the economy will continue to grow, albeit at a much slower pace. Once slower growth allows inflationary pressures to recede, the FOMC will be able to reduce short-term interest rates, something The Street expects by this time next year.

12 B12 Academia Inmates Have Taken Over The Asylum Continued from / B4 Harvard had honored by making him a University Professor - an obviously rare distinction. He has been labeled -particularly by himself - America's pre-eminent black scholar. Nothing is, or could be, further from the truth. He is a salesman - nay, a con man - who, thanks to a shamelessly distorted approach to affirmative action, scaled Harvard's academic heights. He did this by riding the coattails of White guilt; in this regard, I highly recommend Shelby Steele's latest effort, White Guilt: How Blacks & Whites Together Destroyed the Promise of the Civil Rights Era (Steele is a brilliant black scholar at the Hoover Institute). West is a pretentious pedant who has never birthed anything innovative or creative, let alone spawned anything profound. Lest you think I'm being unkind, let me give you some other evaluations of West and then a sample of his writing so that you might make your own determination re his scholarship. Leon Wieseltier, a liberal and the literary editor of the New Republic, a liberal journal, had this to say about West: Since there is no crisis in America more urgent than the crisis of Race, and since there is no intellectual in America more celebrated for his consideration of the crisis of race, I turned to West, and read his books. They are almost completely worthless. * * * * * * West's eccentricity is surpassed by West's vanity * * * * * * West's books are monuments to the devastation of a mind by the squalls of theory. He complains that 'academicist forms of ex-expression have a monopoly on intellectual life,' that black scholars 'imitate the dominant paradigms elevated by fashionable Northeastern seaboard institutions of higher learning,' but he is himself such an imitator, and he is almost wholly undone by his own academician. * * * * * * Enough, Cornel West has been called 'the pre-eminent African-American intellectual of his generation..' This cannot be so. I have not here done justice to Wieseltier's review of West's scholarship (he went on for 8 pages), but this is enough to give you an idea of what at least one liberal (and a fairly gifted on, at that) thinks of West's abilities. David Horowitz, for whom I have great admiration, said this re West: Louie Pompei Memorial Golf Tournament The Glendora Police Management Association donates funds to charitable organizations throughout the year including the California Peace Officer's Memorial Foundation. In order to help raise money for charitable organizations we will be hosting the annual Louie Pompei Memorial Golf Tournament, which will be held on July 10, 2006 at 8:00 am, at the Via Verde Country Club in San Dimas. Louie Pompei was a Glendora Police Officer who was killed during a gun battle with robbers in A portion of the proceeds from the golf tournament will go to the California Peace Officer's Memorial Foundation. This foundation assists families of fallen officers throughout California. We invite you to join us on July 10th. Cost to play is per golfer. Late registration after June 15th will be The format will be a four-person team, best ball. There will be prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, and top three teams. In addition, we will have a raffle at a luncheon following the tournament. If you cannot play you can be a tee sponsor for The name and logo of your company will be posted at one of the tees and your company name will appear in our program. Hope to see you on July 10th. Even more remarkably, except for a thin volume of rambling opinions on issues of the day called Race Matters, none of West's books sell sufficiently to justify the commercial support his work has received. They are put into print (a commentary on our politically correct culture) as 'prestige' publications to bring credit to the house. One reason for the failure of West's books to gain intellectual traction is that while his writings combine the philosophically grandiose with post-modern frou frou, they are singularly lacking in the intellectual power that would sustain either. Perhaps I got ahead of myself, Horowitz opened his 5-page discussion with this observation: There are many Afican-American scholars - Thomas Sowell, Henry Louis Gates, Randall Kennedy, Orlando Patterson, Stephen Carter, William Julius Wilson, and Glenn Loury to name a few - who are making major contributions in their fields. Cornel West of Harvard is not one of them. And interspersed in his evaluation of West's oevre, he makes reference to West's intellectual content by invoking Gertrude Steins's old description of Oakland, i.e., "there is no 'there' there. Finally, in describing the West-Summers fiasco at Harvard, Jeff Jacoby, in his Boston Globe column of 1/ 7/02, entitled Shakedown at Harvard, refers to West in the following manner: West is one of the great poseurs of modern academe, a blowhard Who loves the pompous gush of his own rhetoric, the author Of deadly prose like this passage from his book Keeping Faith - -" And here, I'd like to quote the passage that Jacoby was referring to for it will give you some insight into just how full of baloney West really is; Following the model of the black diasporan traditions of music, culture, athletics, and rhetoric, black cultural workers must constitute and sustain discursive and institutional networks that deconstruct earlier modern black strategies for identity-formation, demystify power relations that incorporate class,patriarchal, and homophobic biases, and construct more multivalent and multidimential responses that articulate thecomplexity and diversity of black practice in the modernand postmodern world. Now, be honest; have you ever read such crap in your life? Did you have any idea of the point that West was trying to make (giving him the benefit of the doubt that he was in fact trying to make a point.)? West writes pure gibberish, and wading through his nonsense is like watching a parade of polysyllabic platitudes that make little or no sense. Evidently, no one ever told him of Strunk and White's Elements of Style. In his effort to appear profound, he forsakes both clarity and brevity. More on West, Summers and Harvard next week.

If traffic backed up they then allowed the cars to pass. Officers asked the drivers if they had been drinking and looked for symptoms to see if they were driving under the influence. If a driver became suspect, they were asked to pull into the parking lot for further evaluation. This included further questioning and, if there was a need, a field sobriety test. The checkpoints screened approximately 7,900 vehicles. 100 vehicles were impounded due to those driving without a license or with a suspended license, while 23 arrests were made of individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

Checkpoints take but a few minutes of a driver s time to confirm his or her privilege and ability to operate a motor vehicle.

The DUI checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, awarded to the Glendora Police Department through the California Business, Transportation and Housing Agency.

Instead, we've been "protected" by political hacks who have either been very good at spinning news about their "accomplishments" or very good at protecting the industry they were elected to oversee. This year voters will probably choose either Cruz Bustamante, a political has-been who turned the campaign into a fat man's joke, or Steve Poizner, a wealthy novice who has little interest in regulating insurance companies, believing instead in the self-regulatory mechanism of a competitive market place. Poizner's election would also turn the regulator's office into a joke, a bad one. One of these two will win unless voters refuse to cast straight party tickets in November. Democrat Bustamante, the current lt. governor, wants to switch positions with another mission from the experts at JPL, where they will also see a demonstration of the Mars Rover. Space campers will also get to design their own rocket. The member fee is 225, nonmember fee is 250. The SAFYMCA also has a selection of summer day camp experiences of the more traditional type planned for children, entering kindergarten through 8th grade. The summer day camps run from June 19 through August 25, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Activities will include arts and crafts, songs, games, and field trips to destinations including the L.A. Zoo, Science Center, Aquarium of the Pacific, the beach, and Quakes baseball. Member fees for Discovery Camp (entering K to 1st grade), Explorer Camp (entering 2nd to 3rd grade), and Voyager Camp (entering 4th to 5th grade) are 135 weekly for members and 140 weekly for non-members. Member fee for 'tween Camp (entering 6th to 8th grade) is 170 weekly, non-member 175 weekly. For the week of July 4, the member/non-member weekly fee is 110/115. Other specialty camps offered by the SAFYMCA this summer are: * Tennis Camp, July 10 to July 14 and July 17 to 21 for kids entering 4th to 8th grade. Certified tennis instructors will work with students to help them learn and hone their tennis skills, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily at the tennis courts at Recreation Park. Weekly fees are 150 for members and 170 for non-members. * Outdoor Adventure Camp, July 24 to July 28 offers children entering 3rd to 6th grade, adventures in knot tying, outdoor cooking, orienteering at Recreation Park and an overnight camp-out at Camp Trask at FICTITIOUS NAME STATEMENT as: D&R Concepts Rim & Tire, 3312 W 84th St Apt A, Inglewood, CA The full name of registrant(s) is/are: Deivo Williams, 3312 W 84th St Apt A, Inglewood, CA This be false is guilty of a crime.)

The weekly fee for members is 195, non-members is 210. * Camp Coulter Pines, Wrightwood, August 5 to August 12, in conjunction with the San Gabriel Valley Family YMCA, offers sleep-away camping fun for kids entering 3rd to 8th grade. Activities include: canoeing, fishing, archery, wall climbing, and hiking. Fee for members is 300, nonmembers is 325. Although each camp is unique, all YMCA summer camps provide safe places with caring adults and positive activities. The SAFYMCA camps focus on the development of four core character values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Extended care hours are available from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for an additional fee of 20 per session. The Santa Anita Family YMCA serves 21,000 children each year in a variety of programs. Financial aid is available. In 2005, the Santa Anita Family YMCA provided more than 93,000 in scholarships to children and families for membership, summer camp, childcare and other programs and services. For more information, call the SAFYMCA at (626) , or visit the web site at Next Insurance Commissioner? They've Sent In The Clowns Democrat, incumbent commissioner John Garamendi. Both are termed out and must leave office. Their plan to swap jobs is reminiscent of the 1958 switcheroo between Gov. Goodwin Knight and U. S. Sen. William Knowland. In that case, Knowland's desire to use the governor's office as a stepping stone to the White House forced a popular Knight to relinquish his seat at Sacramento. Both lost, bringing on the Brown family dynasty. While Bustamante is a longtime Democratic politician, Republican Poizner poses as an outsider, a non-politician. The only reason he has never held office is that he lost an assembly race in The "outsider" image generally works with California's ill-informed electorate. Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger both used it. Voters don't realize that candidate Poizner, like Reagan and Schwarzenegger before him, is part of the conservative in-crowd that dominates Republican politics. Poizner believes that the "competitive free market" is the solution to our insurance woes. Not surprisingly he's been endorsed by anti-regulation, anti-tax lobbies that have no interest in the welfare of insured Californians. They see the job of commissioner as one in which business interests can be protected by concentrating on fighting both fraud and regulation. They don't see insurance companies as a source of that fraud and abuse. That leaves voters with little to choose from among the major party candidates in November. But there are choices. American Independent candidate Jay Burden has neither a web site nor a statement in the state voter's guide. Democratic candidate John Kraft has a web site, but at last screening it had no message, only an endless playing of "Happy Days are Here Again." Libertarian Dale Ogden emphasizes "small government" - tax cuts, no new programs and an end to regulation of the insurance industry. He argues that state regulation harms consumers and he would apparently eliminate most of the commissioner's employees, cutting the budget by three-fourths. Fortunately, there are two candidates committed to making the office what we expected it to be back in Tom Condit, Peace and Freedom candidate, and Larry Cafiero, of the Green party, have detailed, informative statements offering genuine reforms that benefit all Californians as workers, home owners, drivers and health care recipients. Both advocate a state-run health insurance plan, a once novel idea that works elsewhere and is gaining support in the U.S. They also favor an auto insurance reform that would automatically cover every car on the road in California through a pay-atthe-pump tax that would be more than offset by the elimination of the profit-making premiums charged by insurance companies as WEST COVINA JEWELRY & LOAN, 823 S. Glendora Ave., West Covina, CA This business is conducted by a corporation. The registrant has not yet begun business name listed herein. Signed: David S. Ferguson. This statement was filed with the County Clerk of Los Angeles on 6/14/06. NO FILED July 6, 13, San Gabriel Valley / / Ad #F468 But topping the list of each is a call to undo the phony workers comp reform worked out by Republican Schwarzenegger and Democratic legislators that drastically cut benefits for injured workers and passed the savings on to businesses and insurance companies. Californians are concerned about protecting their future, whether it be through fair benefits if injured on the job or through the use of muscle by the insurance commissioner to stop unconscionable rate hikes in health care. To accomplish that, they need to look beyond the candidates of the two old parties. Ralph E.
