I read with interest about the flying of the United States flag at half staff as a memorial to the citizens of Armenia who were killed by the Turks. I understand the feelings of those concerned; however, there are specific rules for the flag of the United States. The president of the United States is designated to declare that the country's flag be flown at half staff. The governor of California may designate when the state of California flag may be flown at half staff.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) joined Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) and senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Jon Kyl, (R-AZ) Wednesday to introduce legislation that would criminalize the construction or financing of border tunnels. According to Schiff's office, recently U.S. border officials found a 2,400 foot tunnel stretching from Tijuana, Mexico to San Diego at California's southern border. The tunnel, the longest of its kind ever found, was equipped with sophisticated draining, lighting, and pulley systems.

Standing in front of the Glendale Police Department on Friday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) voiced strong opposition to Proposition 19, the Nov. 2 ballot measure that would legalize marijuana in California. "As a mother and grandmother of six, I believe Prop. 19 will send a signal to youngsters that marijuana smoking is legal and therefore permissible," Feinstein said. "That's what legalization does. It says it's OK. It's not OK. " Feinstein was joined by Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian and nearly two dozen other opponents of Proposition 19, including representatives of police agencies, schools and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

GLENDALE — With rumors swirling that United States Sen. Diane Feinstein is considering a run for governor of California in 2010, her possible vacancy could pave the way for Rep. Adam Schiff to move from one legislative body to the other. Schiff, 48, a three-term member of Congress whose eight years in the House of Representatives has been marked by a rise in the number of committees on which he serves, has been mentioned as a possible senatorial candidate on the strength of his fundraising ability and unassailable praise from local residents and staff members in Washington, D.C. Those close to Schiff believe he is open to the idea of running if the opportunity presented itself and the timing was right; but officially, Schiff said his focus will remain on his district, which includes Burbank and Glendale.

Nothing to put the disgraceful Glendale driver/traffic situation into perspective like my trip to New York City for Christmas (“A crash course on prevention,” Jan. 16). Midtown Manhattan was gorged with tourists and shoppers. Traffic was such that it seemed like rush hour around the clock, with a nonstop parade of trucks, buses, taxis, bicycles and pedicabs, all handicapped further by the snow, slush and ice that remained after the huge blizzard of Dec. 19. Despite all of these factors, not once in the week I was there did I see (or even hear about)

The U.S. Senate on Friday confirmed Rep. Chris Cox as the new chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, nearly two months after President Bush nominated him for the post. Cox, who has represented Newport Beach in the U.S. House since 1988, could not be reached for comment on the confirmation. It's not clear when he will resign his congressional seat, but once he does, the political dominos will start to fall as candidates seek to replace him, in some cases leaving more legislative vacancies.
