If we just drilled for oil in 6% of the Alaskan Wildlife Preserve, we would never have to buy any oil from Saudia Arabia! Besides that, the caribou could nuzzle against the warm pipelines and be happy -- as they are now doing in the tiny portion of the preserve that the environmental radicals (who now control the Democratic Party) are allowing us to use because they claimed it would interfere with the caribou. In addition, the answer to the energy crisis is to build dozens more power plants -- especially nuclear plants, the cleanest and safest of all, despite what the hypocritical ecologists say about them.

When in Rome, think like the Romans. When in Los Angeles, think like Angelenos. The News-Press editorial board must not understand how those faded blue louvers are still appropriate for a climate like our own. Remember, we do have an energy crisis. Who needs more space when the owners will probably shrink it down for the right amount of money, even more so since the building is in a great location. Sure, I agree that every man has a right to alter his own castle.

Energy crisis or no energy crisis, the city of Glendale's plan to offer free energy-conserving materials and energy rebates to residents is a powerful course of action. On Tuesday, the City Council discussed the merits of a $1.3-million program that would include sending energy conservation materials to thousands of Glendale residents and offering "energy audits." During the audits, city workers would determine how a residence could better conserve energy, assessing temperature settings, windows and insulation and making recommendations to residents.

CITY HALL ? Glendale has been named in a $500-million lawsuit filed Thursday by the state's two largest power companies, alleging that the city's water and power company and 18 other municipal agencies overcharged for electricity sold during the state's 2000-01 power crisis. Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas and Electric and the California Electricity Oversight Board filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Sacramento. The suit stated that the cities sold power at rates that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has already concluded were "unjust and unreasonable."

Vote out incumbents if you want change Public opinion polls have given Congress historic low approval ratings for the past few years. Congress’ approval ratings have lagged behind President Bush’s ratings for the past few years. One recent national poll gave Congress a 9% approval rating. Recent national polls, newspaper, radio and TV stories and conversations I’ve had with friends and neighbors in Glendale identify the energy crisis as the No. 1 problem facing us. Congress adjourned on Friday for their annual five-week summer vacation.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- In the face of California's recent energy crisis, where blackouts and brownouts hit a little too close to home, even local school districts are pitching in to the energy-conservation effort. And they're not just saving energy to make sure their lights stay on. "In the short term and in the long term, any dollars we save on utility costs are dollars that can be spent on instruction," said Steve Hodgson, assistant superintendent of business services for the Glendale Unified School District.

The collapse of the Soviet Union, an energy crisis that followed, a devastating earthquake and a war with neighboring Azerbaijan has driven more citizens out of Armenia than officials would probably like to admit. While the waves of emigration continue, with more ethnic Armenians making up a worldwide Diaspora than actual citizens of the landlocked country, a small minority are answering the call, and “coming back home” from all around the world — Toronto, Jordan, London, Beirut, Boston and even Glendale.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with T. Boone Pickens, the lifelong oilman who is rigorously promoting an effort to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. You’ve probably seen his commercials, and you probably agree with his basic premise — what we’re doing isn’t working. We are spending way too much on the purchase of foreign oil, and we’re not doing enough to generate new sources of energy here at home. When an oilman like Pickens steps up and proposes pursuing alternative energy sources like wind and solar, we should all take notice.

On June 13, Congressman David Dreier stopped by the La Crescenta First Baptist Church to discuss increasing gas prices, illegal immigration and how important the upcoming November election will be. He also took the time to listen to personal stories of how the economy, especially gas prices, are affecting community members. He told the audience that the country?s dependence of foreign oil is a warning drum that he has been banging his entire career in Congress. He cited opportunities that he felt needed to be explored like drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Clark 11th-grader is a statesman in the making My compliments to Jeff Suarez Grant, an 11th-grade student at Clark Magnet School, for his excellent article relative to the peaceful assembly against the war in Iraq by students at Clark. Contrary to the opinions of some, the issue here is not teacher's views or teacher's "propaganda," nor is it a question of permission to dissent by assembly, or waiting for an "appropriate" place and time to assemble.

Tim Willert GLENDALE CITY HALL -- City officials on Friday acknowledged selling power to Enron Corp., but said they don't know if the city participated in any strategies the bankrupt energy broker might have used to rig energy prices in California during the 2000-01 energy crisis. State and federal investigators are checking into whether Glendale and 10 other municipal utilities engaged in price manipulation on the wholesale energy market by conspiring with Enron to gouge consumers.
