Young drivers need more scrutiny Regarding “Bad driving isn’t based on race, age or vehicle,” Community Commentary, Friday: I’ll agree with Aram Barsoumian that race is not an issue; it just appears that in Glendale, young Armenians are the ones we see with the high-powered expensive cars. On age, if we were on a race track, I’d say the 25-year-old might be better. But we’re not on a race track; we’re on public streets, where judgment is more important than reaction.

I have been depressed for months over the inane and stupid attacks on President Obama, personally and on his proposed legislation. In November, after he won the presidential election, and again at the time of his inauguration, I mused to my wife what a house of horrors he had inherited from his predecessor and I wondered how long it would be before his actions and proposed legislation would come under severe attack. I quickly got the answer — it was not even a millisecond, it seemed, after he became president before he came under ferocious, unrelenting and mind-numbing attack by many Republicans and the loudmouths that claim to speak for the party.

LOS ANGELES — The Glendale-Burbank League of Women Voters is preparing for a busy election year of forums and educational seminars, but it took a break to party Saturday for its 70th year of community service. The local chapter started 20 years after the national organization was established to unite women in a nonpartisan effort to push for equal rights, said Chris Carson, the chapter’s co-president. The group has since evolved and become an organization for men and women to work together in building community awareness for local policies and elections, Carson said.

Apparently, Robert Kneedler (Community Forum, Sept. 7) and Robert Morrison (Community Forum, Sept. 3) have a problem with the dissemination of information about a public servant. The distribution of the TRIM (Tax Reform Immediately) bulletins has nothing to do with Oakmont View V, and everything to do with the voting record of Adam Schiff. Whether or not the Gregg family develops their property is not a federal issue. However, pilfering $5 million-plus from the public is. And as to the cries of partisanship on the part of the John Birch Society, TRIM bulletins were distributed in a similar manner for then Congressman Jim Rogan.

The League of Women Voters has been deceiving the public into thinking that it bears any resemblance to a nonpartisan group. Quite the contrary is true. In fact, nothing I have read bothers to mention that the League of Women Voters aligns itself in lock-step with the Democratic Party. If you think otherwise, just look at its record. In the March 7 election, the League of Women Voters was completely in agreement on every issue with the California Democrat Party.

I find it ironic that letter-writer Roberta Medford is upset to see Mike Mohill's posters flourish up and down Honolulu Avenue and elsewhere (“ Not a fan of what Mohill stands for ,” Mailbag, Feb. 13). She states that businesses should not express their politics and that shopkeepers risk turning customers away with partisanship. Where was Medford when former councilman John Drayman, the unofficial mayor of Montrose, ran for office and had posters all over town? Did she object then?

Signs show that the April 2 Glendale municipal election is approaching. Good, because political participation fuels our democracy. I adorn my property and appreciate seeing messages in other yards, even for candidates I oppose. All of us have a right to our opinions, but should people in business express their politics at their establishments? It has been my impression that shopkeepers don't want to risk turning customers off by partisanship. For instance, signs for City Council candidate Mike Mohill in some Montrose establishments definitely make me less likely to patronize those shops.

For the past two days, I have been watching on TV and reading in the newspapers the Democratic Party's and national press' response to Bush's selection of Cheney to be his vice presidential candidate. I have never been so sickened by what I have observed with this response. First of all, every Democrat pundit CNN, Hardball, etc. had on their show spoke from the same text that was obviously produced by the Gore campaign and faxed to all of its spokesmen.

Ryan Carter The constitutional amendment that Assemblywoman Carol Liu (D-La Canada Flintridge) aligned herself with this week that would grant voting rights to 14- through 17-year-olds in state elections is part of a larger push by Liu and others for electoral reform. Liu and Assemblyman Keith Richman (R-La Crescenta) are part of a bipartisan group of about 18 legislators seeking to reform the state's electoral system. "We agreed there were some things we could do to help reform the system, which included changes in redistricting, reinstituting the open primary, term limits and campaign finance reform," Liu said.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- The state's public education system has come a long way during the past six years, state Supt. of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin told Glendale school officials Tuesday afternoon. Teaching standards, student assessment and class-size reduction are a handful of programs that have been implemented. And the work must continue, Eastin said. "We have an opportunity here as long as we don't lose partisanship and we don't lose sight of our goals," she said.
