Karen S. Kim Libertarian congressional candidate Ted Brown says he's ready for Round 2 with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale). The insurance investigator from Arcadia was the fourth vote-getter and virtually forgotten candidate in the much-publicized race two years ago between then incumbent James Rogan, who is now the U.S. Trademark Office director. But the experience didn't discourage Brown, who ended up receiving 1.7% of the vote. "It was a fascinating campaign because I was trying to push myself in wherever I could," Brown, 41, said.

On behalf of all my neighbors who live near Rockridge Terrace in Montrose, I wish to thank Adam Schiff for his indispensable role in helping us preserve, for all time, our little hillside. Thanks to his tireless efforts, state funds have been secured for La Canada Flintridge to purchase this property and keep it forever safe from the desecration of developers. There will never be any "artistic homes" or "charming condos" to make ugly what has for centuries been a thing of natural beauty.

GLENDALE -- We here at the News-Press are not suckers -- at least we're trying our best not to be. Since our hard-working elected officials went back to work at the beginning of the year, they've been really, really busy. We're getting lots of faxes, often more than one a day, from our state legislators introducing bills trying to stop HMOs from killing people, eliminate crime altogether or reform our schools so every punk kid who doesn't like to study will get straight As. In an election year, we know some of these bills are throw-away legislation aimed only at getting headlines, while others are that perfect legislation that will provide eternal happiness for the entire world.

NO END OF GRIEF Those wanting to keep the hillside view pristine at the Glendale (2) and Ventura (134) freeways may not like the latest plans. It's not the golden arches, but In-N-Out wants to open a hamburger restaurant next to the Rusty Pelican, an upscale seafood restaurant. The site is also the location of three monopoles that will be used for cellular telephones. They will have flags and be lit at night. Residents and City Hall had opposed plans for a cellular tower that resembled the Washington Monument.

Claudia Peschiutta James Rogan has taken to describing himself as an unemployed private citizen. Others would have the former Glendale congressman become much more than that. Several rumors about Rogan's future have been flying around since the two-term representative lost his reelection bid to Democrat Adam Schiff on Nov. 7. "I want to go back to bartending, but I'm not nearly as quick on those bottles as I used to be," Rogan joked, referring to his younger days, when he mixed drinks to support himself.

o7 An Open Letter to Congressman James E. Rogan: f7 Dear Jim, As Tuesday, Nov. 7 fades into the past, we wanted to tell you -- publicly -- how proud we are to have been a part of your staff over these past four years. You are a true hero and a patriot, and you served your district well. It has been our privilege and pleasure to stand with you as you took your place in American history, even through the dark days of the impeachment trial. You stood your ground and inspired millions of Americans with your courage.

James Rogan In areas like Southern California, and all along our nation's southern borders, the problem of alien smuggling is most severe. What was once a trickle of smuggled immigrants has grown to a tide of organized crime smuggling aliens from every corner of the globe. Each year, millions of illegal aliens come to this country by means of smugglers, often called "coyotes." Making the problem more severe is that many of the immigrants are often found wandering in the desert, left for dead.
