Residents across California were startled overnight by cellphones that came to life in screeches and buzzes, awaking some and unsettling others with the state's first Amber Alert via text message. Amber Alerts, which are issued for critical child abductions, are not new for local residents, the Los Angeles Times reported . But for the first time Monday night, residents across the Southland experienced an Amber Alert issued via text message to their cellphones -- and got the full compliment of a 10-second spurt of high-pitched noise and buzzing.

With the cost of the state's high-speed rail project rising dramatically, a new public opinion poll shows that a clear majority of California's registered voters would reject the proposal if given a second chance to vote on it today. Released Tuesday, the poll by Field Research Corp. in San Francisco found that 64% of those surveyed want another public vote on the $98-billion project and that 59% of respondents would oppose it because of changes in its cost and completion date.

Booze conosuers are putting forth their best efforts to get Gov. Jerry Brown to sign bill into law that would overturn a ban on serving cocktails made with infused alcohol in the state, Laist.com reported. For almost the past 100 years it has been illegal for bars to serve a drink made with spirits infused with other flavors, including herbs or vegetables, when the infusion is not done prior to the bottling process.

Californians are kicking the habit. The rate of adult smoking has dropped sharply over the last two decades, reaching its lowest level on record, largely because of aggressive tobacco control campaigns by state and local governments, officials said. Last year, 11.9% of Californians said they smoked, down from 25.9% in 1984, the earliest data available, according to the California Department of Public Health. Only one other state had a lower smoking rate last year: Utah with 9.1%.

Please report how shocking it was to learn that state Sen. Jack Scott is one of the California legislators voting against taxpayers and homeowners. Out of more than 655 bills, the way he voted, not what he said or meant but voted, showed clearly his way of thinking about taxing and spending. He voted for bills that would increase taxes, make it easier to increase taxes and generally undermine Proposition 13. Unfortunately, most of these bills are still "alive and well" in 2004 and most of them will end up costing Californians millions and billions per year.

Ever since the national election in November, much has been said about the fact that the incoming Speaker of the House is former minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from San Francisco. Television and radio programs and many of the talk shows, as well as commentaries on the op-ed pages of newspapers, are predicting what a significant change this will make, and how she may be the instrument for healing some of the political rifts in Congress and also how she may begin to bring some semblance of order to a factionalized body of legislators.

Let's use Mr. Bunkell's premise -- no matter that it bears no resemblance to fact -- that "affordable is whatever the current marketplace bears." So, if oil companies hike gasoline prices in L.A. to $11.99 per gallon and people pay it, the increase is warranted because "the current marketplace" will "bear" it? After all, probably only those cheap people who moved to outlying areas where housing was affordable would be affected, right? Everyone else can just use the public transportation system, right?

Robert Chacon Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday vetoed two bills by Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Glendale) meant to lower the cost of prescription drugs for Californians. Frommer's bills were in response to the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs in the U.S. and sought to allow Californians to buy their drugs from Canadian pharmacies. Schwarzenegger, instead, sought to tout his own plan, which he said would also lower the cost of prescription drugs.

Rima Shah Local lawmakers hurried to meet the deadline to introduce new legislation Tuesday, with many of the proposed laws slated to significantly impact education, healthcare and finance. Sen. Jack Scott is proposing a law requiring all University of California schools to have the same undergraduate transfer requirements. The bill is similar to one he successfully introduced last year that required the same undergraduate transfer requirements for all California State University campuses.

I vividly remember seeing Huell Howser in person for the first time. I was in my last semester of college, interning at KCET and constantly wondering about the series of events that would or wouldn't take place after I was handed that coveted diploma. I heard him before I saw him, instantly recognizing that unforgettably intriguing Tennessee accent as he came up the hall and darted into his office, just a few feet away from the cubicle I was in. A strange mix of excitement and anxiety came over me. I peered above my gray wall and there he was: his orderly tuft of white hair, that toothy smile and his signature light blue shirt.

The story (“ Krikorian shrugs off cash woes ,” July 1) that ran concerning my family's financial issues was troubling for a number of reasons, least of all of which was the motivation behind such a vindictive piece. The article contained what I believe were false innuendoes designed to call into question the support I have garnered for my candidacy, as well as my character. Let there be no doubt that I stand beside my wife and support her during this difficult time. If she asked me to, I would drop out of this Assembly race.

Congratulations to the Glendale News-Press for your excellent article on the two local citizens currently being considered for the Citizens Redistricting Commission ("Two locals still in the hunt for seats," Sept. 10). It was balanced and accurate and gave readers a good view of why this selection process is so vital. Outstanding people from all over California have applied. We only need to look at our local candidates, Martha Jimenez and LaDrena Dansby, to see that. This commission will bring together a group of Californians with diverse skills, backgrounds and viewpoints who owe nothing to the politicians and who will be able to fairly redraw the legislative district lines for California.

Auto travel is up this year, but air is down during this holiday weekend, officials said. About 90% of the 2.5 million Southern California are traveling by car this Labor Day weekend, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California. Cheaper gas prices may have a hand in the 11% increase in auto travel from 2009, auto club officials said. Gas prices were hovering around $3 a gallon on average, and the top driving destinations included Las Vegas, San Diego, and Santa Barbara, auto club officials said.

Karen and Peter Veloz are living in sustainable luxury in the hills of Glendale. About two years ago, with the help of FormLA, a Los Angeles landscape design company that focuses on sustainability, they ripped out their back lawn and put in hardscapes amid a landscape of California-native plants. The concept behind the design was to create outdoor living spaces, Karen Veloz said, and so the backyard features outdoor seating areas, a fire pit, barbecue and bar, wine cellar and infinity spa pool, or “spool.

A string of California surveys released over the last week by the Field Research Corporation shows disapproval of Congress, awareness and minor support for the “tea party” movement, and disappointment in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. In a job ratings poll, 59% of voters surveyed said it was likely Schwarzenegger would leave the state in worse shape than when he took over in 2003, with 30% anticipating no change and 7% expecting the governor would implement improvements.
