What's the secret to marriage? Every once in a while, some foolhardy soul drawn to our house by screaming voices and the sound of crockery exploding on the walls will ask me to share our secret. OK, that's not true. I've never been asked. But just as the name of this column promises, I'm going to answer the question as if you asked. I should quickly note there probably isn't anyone who has ever heard my wife and I doing battle, intermittently shouting at the top of our lungs as we gulp down the remnants of a martini shaker, and occasionally hurling vases and picture frames across the room.

Last time a California governor asked voters for a tax increase, Sen. Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) offered his support. That won’t be the case this time. Huff, whose district includes the Montrose Shopping Park and parts of La Crescenta, said this week that Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Democrats will have to go further with legislative reforms and budget cuts if they are to get the five Republican votes needed in the state Legislature to put a tax measure on the June ballot.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was in Los Angeles on Thursday to push for speedy changes to state education laws that would help California earn eligibility for the $4.3-billion Race to the Top federal funding competition by a mid-January deadline. Legislation to make those fixes is being pushed, in part, by state Sen. Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) who serves as vice chairman of the Senate?s Sub-Committee on Education. Teachers unions have opposed the plan, which would, among other things, allow the state to evaluate teacher and administrator performance based on student test scores.

California lawmakers may have thousands of reasons to pass a state budget on time, something they have done only four times in the last 21 years. Proposition 25, approved by the voters in 2010, docks the pay of state legislators for every day the budget is late. “Most people in the Legislature are not wealthy, and this will create real pressure,” said state Sen. Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar), whose district includes Montrose. In the past, lawmakers were not paid during budget impasses, but were reimbursed once a budget was signed.
