Police reinforced the need for community involvement Tuesday night to dozens of residents following a spate of vehicle thefts in the South Glendale area. The spike in vehicle thefts was partly due to residents leaving their keys inside the ignition while they run inside their homes for a few seconds, said the area's lieutenant, Todd Anderson. While police arrested two men who allegedly were responsible for some of the thefts, police still warned residents at a town hall meeting at the retirement community, Windsor Manor, to protect their belongings and to be vigilant.

BURBANK — Sen. Carol Liu answered questions from residents about education, health care, the state’s budget and deficit, and new tax hikes during a town hall meeting Saturday. Adult education student Alejandro Plata, who lives in Huntington Park, heard rumors in school that it could be closing because funding approved from the state budget only finances kindergarten through 12th-grade instruction, he told Liu. Plata, who is a high school dropout, can’t afford to lose his schooling because he said he wants to graduate.

Sen. Carol Liu will host a town hall meeting Saturday to discuss the latest updates on the state budget, which is again billions in the red. After a protracted three-way battle among the governor, Democrats and Republicans over a projected $42-billion deficit ended in February, the state now faces another gap of about $8 billion due to declining tax revenues. And according to a recent poll by the Public Policy Institute of California, nearly every revenue-generating state proposition in the upcoming special May election lacks the required voter support to pass.

Following months of meetings and closed-door negotiations , Glendale Unified officials are seeking input from Sagebrush residents on whether the La Cañada area should be transferred to that city's district. The area has historically been served by Glendale Unified, although efforts on behalf of residents to transfer the territory to La Cañada Unified spans decades. A current proposal would allow for the transfer, but would allow parents to choose which district to send their children to during a six-year period.

Every Wednesday promptly at 1:30 p.m., 50 or more cops and some civilian staffers assemble in the meeting room at the Glendale Police Department for the fastest 60 minutes in crime-fighting. They call it the “Week in Crime.” A glimpse inside what Glendale police are doing with high-tech computers in every car, software that connects them to every database, video surveillance systems on the streets and increasingly sophisticated analytical techniques gives a civilian the feeling he has entered a world that resembles crime-of-the-week TV shows like NCIS.

Members of Congress are coming to Pasadena next week to hear about problems during the Station Fire, but Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich already knows what he wants Congress to do. In an interview, he said he wants the U.S. Forest Service to allow night flights to battle blazes, which would require a reversal of current policy. He wants the agency to have more and better mechanized firefighting equipment. He wants the feds to allow Los Angeles County Fire Department to take the lead the next time a blaze breaks out in the local mountains.

As a ninth-grader at Crescenta Valley High School, I felt the need to respond to a letter by Debi Devens concerning President Obama's speech to schoolchildren ("Keep Obama speech out of the classroom," Sept. 14). She claims that the speech should not be shown in classrooms for fear of him influencing our political views. Instead, she believes the speech should be watched only at home, where "family discussions can be held afterward. " On the other hand, wouldn't it be better, as growing individuals, to view a speech in an unbiased environment, such as a classroom, where we can interpret information for ourselves and develop our own opinions?
