State Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles) introduced a resolution last week urging the U.S. Congress to pass legislation that would reduce helicopter noise over L.A. County neighborhoods. The Los Angeles Residential Helicopter Noise Relief Act, introduced in the U.S. House by Rep. Howard Berman (D-Valley Village), would require the Federal Aviation Administration to issue regulations relating to helicopter flight paths and altitudes. Sen. Dianne Feinstein sponsored similar legislation regarding helicopter noise, which is now tied to the noise relief act. “For far too long, residential neighborhoods have had to deal with increasing noise and other burdens from helicopters,” Feuer said in a statement.

My husband and I love Glendale. It is a beautiful, well-maintained city. However, the tremendous amount of noise and air pollution generated and tolerated daily by this city is mind-boggling. Between the daily slamming and beeping of garbage trucks, incessant toxic dust and racket of leaf blowers six days a week, frequent helicopter noise, not to mention barking dogs, screaming babies and other neighborly sounds such as television, life can become quite intolerable. At least one of those major health hazards and mental stress sources can be eliminated by Glendale joining other enlightened cities and banning leaf blowers as a method of cleaning yards and driveways.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) joined California Sens. Dianne Feinstein  and Barbara Boxer in introducing legislation on Monday to try and provide Los Angeles County residents a respite from helicopter noise. The Los Angeles Residential Helicopter Noise Relief Act would require the Federal Aviation Administration to establish regulations on flight paths and minimum altitudes for helicopter flights in the county, Schiff said. “Residents living in Glendale, Pasadena, the Valley, the Hollywood Hills, West Hollywood and other areas are especially affected by intrusive, disruptive and often non-emergency related helicopter traffic above their neighborhoods,” Schiff said in a statement.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE -- No one can say a lawsuit by a Glendale theater company is much ado about nothing. The lawyers for A Noise Within are seeking $80,000 to $100,000 in damages from Cal State L.A. and unspecified punitive damages over a disagreement that led to the theater group leaving the Harriet and Charles Luckman Fine Arts Complex and return to Glendale. The lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court said the company's experiences with the college and Clifford Harper, the theater's executive director, have given it a more "profound understanding of the theater of the absurd."

Joyce Rudolph DOWNTOWN -- It's the transformation of the lead character that makes A Noise Within's "A Christmas Carol" especially charming. Actor William Dennis Hunt plays Ebenezer Scrooge in this Charles Dickens' classic that co-director Julia Rodriguez Elliott said is very true to the text. "What's wonderful about William's portrayal is you get a real sense of the tranformation, from this man who has lived a life of denying himself and everyone else pleasure and joy to the rebirth of him when he discovers his own generosity of spirit," she said.

It was a busy week for Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake), who had several bills approved by various committees, including one piece of legislation aimed at better training school employees to identify and report child abuse. AB 1432, passed by a 5-0 vote by the Assembly Education Committee, would require school employees to take mandatory training on state-developed standards for spotting abuse and neglect and taking the proper steps to report it. “By training school personnel to recognize the signs of abuse, it is my hope we will help stop it,” said Gatto in a statement.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) sent a letter to Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Michael Huerta on Monday, saying that they have yet to see any demonstrated or significant progress toward reducing helicopter noise nearly a year after their initial report. The letter comes on the heels of a meeting with the FAA in which the agency failed to produce a plan to meet its Congressional mandate to reduce helicopter noise, did not identify quantifiable ways to measure helicopter noise throughout the L.A. basin and failed to study the entire LA basin, instead focusing on small study areas.

It's been nearly two decades since theater company A Noise Within, now in Pasadena, last revisited Molière's satiric masterwork, “Tartuffe.” Its new production of the 17th century classic, running in repertory through May 24, resumes performances on Sunday, and seeing the company's deft frolic through this all too timely skewering of religious hypocrisy, the question is - what took them so long? The play opens with a ball given by Elmire (Carolyn Ratteray), the attractive wife of Orgon, the master of the house.

Area lawmakers, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), are voicing concerns about the FAA's response to their request that the agency better deal with helicopter noise in the San Fernando Valley and the greater Los Angeles basin. Federal Aviation Administration officials, responding to a letter sent by the lawmakers six months ago, do not lay out a timeline for action. In addition, instead of studying the entire Los Angeles basin, they targeted only small areas - Torrance, Hollywood and the Cahuenga Pass - which the lawmakers contend are not sufficient to understand the full problem affecting homeowners and businesses.

A property owner allows frequent use of a house for parties , the celebrations get obnoxiously loud, the neighbors grow weary and friction ensues. It's a perennial issue in many communities and it's becoming ever more prevalent as owners or property managers use the Internet to list their homes in residentially zoned areas for short-term rentals - for as brief a rental period as a single day. Here, in the 1300 block of Norton Avenue, there's a large home that police have been called to seven different times since October by neighbors objecting to the excessive noise and traffic associated with parties being held there by these transient tenants.
