Robert Shaffer BURBANK -- Presidential hopeful George W. Bush made a stop in Burbank on Tuesday night on an abbreviated campaign stop in Los Angeles. Bush, in a contentious Republican primary with John McCain and Alan Keyes, flew in to Burbank and was scheduled to give a short speech to supporters at a rally at the airport. The Texas governor has two campaign events scheduled in Los Angeles today. The first is at Los Angeles International Church, the other a town hall meeting with Latino voters.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) helped raise enthusiasm among delegates at the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday by praising his mom and promising a Republican president and Congress for her grandchildren. "I came here to talk about a hero, a young woman who raised four children on welfare and food stamps," Rogan said. "My hero is my mother, Alice, and because my mom wants poor mothers to see their children succeed, my mother is a Republican who wants George W. Bush to lead America into the 21st century."

Making an educated vote in a presidential election is an event from which everyone can benefit. As a young Armenian, I find myself very concerned about the upcoming election. Armenians as a whole tend to be conservative, with their views on traditional family values. During the past eight years, neither Clinton nor Gore has mentioned the word "genocide" in the same sentence as "Armenians." Clinton and Gore mentioned only historical hardship. We cannot forget history.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- After Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush face off for the second time in a presidential debate on Wednesday, three well-known commentators will share their views on the showdown on a local radio station. Conservatives Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt and Terry Eastland will take part in a post-debate discussion at 7:30 p.m. on KIEV-AM (870). Medved is a film critic, author and host of his own radio talk show.

Gov. George W. Bush has accused Vice President Al Gore of using "fuzzy math" to distort his proposals. But, there is something about the governor's presidential campaign platform that just doesn't add up! Do the math yourself. Bush has said, "My vision is to empower Americans to make decisions for themselves in their own lives." How can the governor make such a statement yet also say that women do not have the right to choose what is best for their own bodies and the future of their own lives?

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- As Republicans do their best to emphasize racial diversity and inclusiveness at the GOP convention this week, a local man has become a favorite of the national media. Glendale resident Hector Barreto, who identifies himself as one of only a handful of Latinos with official roles at the 2000 Republican National Convention, has been flooded with interview requests since the GOP party began Monday in Philadelphia. "This is exactly what I hoped would happen at this convention, which is to show a spotlight on the other side of the story, which is all the positive things going on in the Latino community and in this party and with this candidate (Texas Gov. George W. Bush)

Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- Crossover votes in Tuesday's California presidential primary will not determine who wins either the Democratic or Republican nomination. In essence, voters who cross party lines to vote for president will be wasting their vote. A Democrat who votes for George W. Bush or John McCain will have no say in who wins California's 162 delegates to the GOP national convention beginning July 29 in Philadelphia. Independents, officially called "declined to state," will also have no say in the presidential race.

As the new administration under George W. Bush takes office and directs our foreign policies, I hope our nation's interests are served better than they were during the Clinton years. Based on character and performance, our foreign policy under Bush and our new Secretary of State Colin Powell should prove more effective. To mention a case in point, the U.S. Congress was on the brink of passing a resolution condemning the Genocide of Christian Armenian citizens by Turkey in 1915, recognized by many countries around the world.

Gary Moskowitz GLENDALE HIGH SCHOOL -- What was once a group of 15 Glendale High School students attending the inauguration of George W. Bush is now nine, caused mainly by the $1,500 per-person cost to attend and a lack of support from the community. Government/economics teacher Mary Hazlett encouraged her students to seek financial help from the community from the beginning. "Nobody supported us," said 17-year-old Rita Bedrosian, one of the nine remaining students going to the nation's capitol for the four-day trip.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Michael Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic presidential candidate, will speak at Friday's meeting of the Glendale Democratic Club. Dukakis, who lost his race to George Bush Sr., will speak on the Supreme Court ruling in favor of George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election. "He's got strong feelings about that subject," said group member Dean Hartwell, who invited Dukakis to speak. Dukakis has not been absent from the political scene since his defeat.

Where those tax dollars go I don’t know anyone who likes paying taxes, but Jim Chase’s rant against paying taxes only talks about one side of the equation [“Growing up can be so taxing,” Feb. 13]. The rather large elephant in the room that Chase doesn’t seem to notice is some of the things those taxes pay for: • Our military personnel in harm’s way in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the up-armored vehicles they need to avoid having limbs blown off by IEDs; • The capabilities of NASA and JPL that make us one of the few spacefaring nations in the world; • A system of magnificent national parks and monuments for the enjoyment of all; • The fire crews that stop wildfires before they reach homes, the police officers that respond to your 911 call and the flood control workers who clean out debris basins to protect our neighborhoods from flooding; • The interstate highway system and other major government-funded infrastructure projects that act as a foundation for the creation of wealth and opportunity; • Government agencies that struggle — in spite of insufficient funding — to help keep our nuclear reactors safe, our air and water pure, our medicines safe and effective, our peanuts non-toxic and our commercial aircraft properly inspected and guided safely in flight.

It had been a long day of traveling when brothers Franz and Kurt Wisner found themselves where no vagabonds want to be: stuck in a customs office trying to negotiate their Saab over the Syrian border. They had spent a half an hour passing out $20 bills to make their way into the office of the head official, a stoic fellow who seemed irritated the pair had interrupted his viewing of the 2000 U.S. presidential debate between George W. Bush and Al Gore. Sensing an opportunity, Wisner slowly rose and grabbed a picture of himself posing with Bush, taken at a fundraiser during his former corporate days at the Irvine Co. The official, apparently a Bush fan at the time, was so impressed he sent the men through, waiving the exorbitant fees required to take a car into the country.

Shopping carts on streets are still an issue I've noticed that the controversy over shopping carts in the streets and on the sidewalks has seemed to go away. Unfortunately the carts haven't. For the past two weeks there has been a bright blue Ross cart at the corner of Dryden Street and North Isabel Street. My local Ralphs and Vons have spent a fortune updating their carts so they won't leave the parking lots. What about Whole Foods, Ross, World Market and the others?

Touching stories help to inform the community I am a sophomore at Clark Magnet High School and I read the article about Mary Anadolian ("Love is the best therapy," Nov. 30). It is a very touching article telling about her battle against a cancer in her lymph nodes known as Hodgkin's disease. I think it was a great idea writing about Mary's struggle with cancer because readers, many of them students, are becoming more appreciative of life. It would be nice to see more inspiring articles about people who overcome extremely harsh problems when there is not much help around.

JUNE CASAGRANDE America Online recently asked me to click a button to specify which candidate I thought would be a better president. (I couldn't find Pat Buchanan's name anywhere, so being the good Floridian I am, I boycotted the polling.) After the election, AOL asked me whether I thought George W. Bush was an effective leader. The first time I ever encountered this brand of cyber-interrogation was years ago, when the Los Angeles Times briefly had its own online service.

DENNIS MOUNTJOY The Electoral College has endured -- and triumphed -- for more than two centuries because it was, and still is, a brilliant idea, both in theory and in practice. In creating the Electoral College system, the framers of the Constitution came up with a creative answer to one of the new nation's most troublesome questions: how do we elect a single national president for a federal government formed by 13 individual states? The Framers were always sensitive to the fact that the federal government had not created 13 states, but that the sovereign states had created a single national government.

Why would anyone want to vote for George W. Bush for president? I have racked my brain to come up with even one reason to allow him four more years to mislead and mismanage this nation. Consider the possible Bush arguments and my counterpoint. Bush argument: The economy is strong. My response: Wrong. Bush will be the first president since Herbert Hoover to preside over a net loss of jobs during his time in office. Bush argument: The war is going well in Iraq.

After watching three head-to-head, albeit completely neutered debates between George W. Bush and John Kerry, I'm still amazed to see Bush's apologists acknowledging that he has all the charisma of a Waco used-car salesman and the communication skills of Koko the gorilla, but still think he'd be more fun at a barbecue -- hence his appeal as the most powerful man on the face of the earth. Excuse me? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the United States is the only country in the world where the term "intellectual" is an insult.

It is crucial that we get this current administration out of office! I've seen this nation get divided by this administration and I can't even fathom why we would want to elect them for another four years ... yikes! Why would we want to [subject] ourselves to that type of torture? Because we are scared. We've been scared into thinking that terrorists are going to attack again if we don't have our faithful leader, George W. Bush, by our side when he really hasn't been faithful at all. Just watch "Fahrenheit 9/11" by Michael Moore and you will see what I mean.
