Last month, your paper quoted Congressman Jim Rogan calling former presidential candidate John McCain a "real role model." McCain is indeed a first-class role model for his efforts to clean up our country's dirty political finance system. But Rogan refuses to take McCain's lead. The Los Angeles Times reported recently that Rogan voted against legislation that would require secret political action committees to fully disclose their list of contributors.

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.

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.

In cases of extreme trauma, the human brain can employ a marvelous defense mechanism: It can completely block out all memories of horrible events. That?s why I predict that, beginning Nov. 5, millions of us will begin to utter things such as: ?What election? I don?t remember any election. One day we were all getting rich flipping houses, the next day President (Barack Obama, John McCain, Ralph Nader, Bill the Cat) leased the lower 48 states to China. But I certainly don?t remember any election taking place in between.

Claudia Peschiutta BEL-AIR -- One politician is probably best known for his support of campaign finance reform. The other is running what could turn out to be the most expensive congressional campaign in the nation's history. Despite the apparent divide, Arizona Sen. John McCain has made U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) a top priority in his effort to help the GOP keep its narrow lead in Congress. The two downplayed their differences at a Rogan fund-raiser held in Bel-Air Tuesday night.

Somebody pinch me. Could it be possible that we could have a presidential election choice between Barack Obama and John McCain? Imagine having to select between the author of the last major campaign reform and the author of an ethics bill that bans gifts and travel by lobbyists. Could Glendale’s councilmen catch the wave of change and promote a meaningful ordinance or Charter amendment for the Jewel City? Both Obama and McCain have vigorously promoted an independent ethics panel that would audit financial disclosures, lobbying reports and investigate alleged ethics violations.

Instead of participating in a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters in the spring, James Rogan chose to attend a "Tusk'n Trunk" Republican fund-raiser in Scottsdale, Ariz. Admission to the league's forum was free, was replayed on community television, and was open to questions from the public. Tickets to the Arizona event started at $300, but for an extra $5,000, donors could have their picture taken with Rogan. He is apparently confused about who his constituents are, where they live, and what their concerns might be. It is both expensive and time consuming to respond to televised attack ads and untrue campaign mailers.

LA CRESCENTA — A team of roughly a dozen Crescenta Valley High School seniors this week applied to host a commencement speech by President Obama. As part of its education reforms, the White House and U.S. Department of Education have offered a presidential graduation to public schools that can prove themselves a model for the nation. Winning schools will demonstrate they have robust college- and career-readying academic classes, extracurricular activities, graduation rates, daily attendance and college enrollment rates, according to the White House.

Sandwiches have been an American favorite since the days of the American Revolution. George Washington ate sandwiches and candy for lunch every day. Calvin Coolidge sneaked away from his inaugural parade to enjoy sandwiches and coffee at the White House with his wife. After taking the oath of office following Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death, President Truman returned home for a turkey sandwich and a glass of milk. The current White House chefs can predict President Bush’s favorite lunch — bacon-lettuce-tomato on white bread with Lays potato chips and a diet Coke.

The clubhouse of the La Crescenta Woman’s Club on Thursday was just about filled to capacity with some 125 supporters who turned out to hear the close friend and Prisoner of War roommate of John McCain John McCain , Jon Fer . Col. Fer, retired from the U.S. Air Force, was shot down over Vietnam in February 1967, three months before McCain was shot down. For more than two years, the two shared a cell or an adjacent cell in the Hanoi Hilton. “I liked him right off the bat,” Fer said.

Our family is a cross cultural American family. Different religions. Different political parties. But we all love one another. A few years ago, we acquired a red, white and blue toy donkey, and a red, white and blue toy elephant. Depending on our moods, they are posed, with the donkey sitting on the elephant or the elephant kicking the donkey. Our country is also cross cultural. That?s why both John McCain and Barack Obama have disowned the negative personal attacks on the candidates and their families.

by Robin Goldsworthy Practical jokes were abundant this past Tuesday. I don’t know if you had the chance to check out the banner on the construction site for the La CaƱada Town Center at Angeles Crest Highway and Foothill Boulevard. The proclamation that a Hooters was coming to the area caused residents to burn the phone wires as they called city councilmembers to voice their concern. Turned out that the whole thing was the mother of all practical jokes, giving us with an overworked funny bone yet another reason to laugh.
