Well, well, well, the folks at Charter Communications must be staying awake nights thinking of ways to scam the public! Months ago, we were all encouraged to change our service to digital, since the industry was headed in that direction anyway. And a promotion offered by the company made it all that more attractive. However, they neglected to mention there would a later increase in the cost of the existing digital receivers of approximately $4.86 per month.

The city accepted Agajanian's fourth proposal, in which the city bought the ASLA's headquarters on Brand Boulevard for $5 million, and gave the society land on Louise Street to build a new headquarters.

Tom Belcher I read with great interest and dismay the News-Press editorial of June 1 ("Cable rate hike points up lack of competition") regarding our -- Charter Communications' -- pricing and purported lack of competition. The News-Press began its comments by stating, "sure, electricity and gasoline prices have seen big jumps in recent months. But who would have thought the cost of watching TV could climb so fast?" The editorial goes on to surmise that our price increase in June can be attributed to a lack of competition.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- Register to vote -- elsewhere, for now. Charter Communications and MTV kicked-off a five-day local voter registration drive at the campus on Wednesday. There were several goodies to entice students to visit the booth -- free pins and bumper stickers and a raffle for caps, T-shirts and a $500 gift certificate for the Media City Center in Burbank. The only thing missing were the registration forms. "It's kind of ironic because most of the people who have come up have already registered and that's a good thing," said Monica Dozier, an MTV representative.

I never asked for, and you didn't ask me if I wanted, what you term "upgrades" to your system, the digital system, the extra channels, the interactive channels, your video-on-demand. I don't want any of it and I don't want to pay for it. Nor do I want to pay for the dozens and dozens of marketing pieces I've received in the mail from Charter.
