GLENDALE — As the summer heat leads to increased fire danger, fire officials are anxiously awaiting the arrival of two Canadian aircraft, expected to touch down in September. Supervisor Mike Antonovich renewed a five-year contract with the Quebec government to lease two CL-415 "Super Scoopers" during Los Angeles County's fire season, officials said. The turboprops are expected to reach Los Angeles County on Sept. 1 and will remain until Nov. 31, officials said. The aircraft, which can be airborne in five minutes and fly for three hours without refueling, has been used countywide to battle stubborn blazes in rough terrain.

Michael Antonovich Measure A, the latest attempt by special interests and termed-out state legislators to nearly double the size and cost of the County Board of Supervisors is anything but "good for the county" taxpayers. It empowers government at the expense of the taxpayer. It does not add on more sheriff's deputy, firefighter, child care worker, doctor, nurse, park or public library. Los Angeles County taxpayers already have more than 1,000 elected representatives.
