It took Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies a minute longer to respond to emergency calls from unincorporated parts of the county than from cities that contract with the department for police services, according to a county audit. The finding comes days after Supervisor Gloria Molina accused Sheriff Lee Baca of "stealing" police resources from residents in unincorporated neighborhoods and threatened to hire "independent private patrol cars" to backfill cuts in sheriff's patrols.

Alecia Foster LA CRESCENTA -- Although the proposed 2000-2001 Los Angeles County budget does not provide for extra sheriff's patrol deputies in unincorporated areas of L.A., local sheriff's officials say they are not concerned at this point. "That's just the first go-round," said Lt. Jerry Carrigan of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. Fifth District Supervisor Michael Antonovich voted no on the proposed budget when it came before the board Tuesday.

A proposal aimed at spreading the tax burden for Sheriff's Department services more evenly between unincorporated areas such as La Crescenta and contract cities such as La Cañada Flintridge has raised a number of concerns in cities and unincorporated communities. The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors has called on the county auditor to report on whether the county can bill cities to recover the cost of internal affairs probes, advanced training for deputies and other Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department services.

Apparently our City Council is considering a ban on plastic bags given to customers in most Glendale stores. In its place, customers will have to purchase paper bags at 10 cents per bag if they don't have a reusable bag. Our council wants to copy what the unincorporated areas of L.A. County did earlier this year. This ban in Glendale would be a huge inconvenience for all residents of Glendale and should not be the sole decision of just the five City Council members. There should be a referendum so the voters can decide.

A move by Supervisor Mike Antonovich to ban medical marijuana dispensaries to unincorporated areas of the county is premature, given that California voters will be asked whether they want to legalize the drug in a few months. With the November ballot initiative to legalize and tax marijuana sales looming large, many local governments have decided to put off any final decisions. Right now, the verdict could tip either way. In the latest poll from the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California, 49% of likely voters think marijuana use should be made legal, 48% do not and 3% are undecided.

This past Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3 to 1, with Supervisor Don Knabe absent, to ban plastic shopping bags in all markets and convenience stores in the county's unincorporated areas — home to 1.5 million residents ("La Crescenta says goodbye to plastic," Nov. 17). I voted "no" on the ban based on the facts that it is not sound public policy, and it also only increases costs and regulations on the 1.5 million residents and the businesses residing in the county's unincorporated areas — and not the county's 88 cities ("Time for a sweeping plastic-bag ban," Nov. 20)

LA CRESCENTA — Medical marijuana clinics looking to open in La Crescenta will have to look elsewhere after the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday banned the dispensaries in unincorporated areas of the county. Supervisors had directed county planners in July to prepare an ordinance banning all medical marijuana dispensaries from setting up shop in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. Supervisor Mike Antonovich has pushed for the ban, which he said would help keep dispensaries from relocating to unincorporated communities in Los Angeles, where the City Council passed a series of tightened restrictions.

Smoking in restaurants and jetliners, glass and newspapers in the trash bin, oil or poison down the drain - years ago, many people didn't think twice about environmental hazards that we now shake our heads at in disbelief. On some level, though, it makes sense that the movements among cities, including Glendale, to ban single-use plastic bags from major retailers is encountering some resistance. Change, even smart change, is hard. Those plastic bags - the majority of which are used for a cumulative 30 minutes from store to car to kitchen - take hundreds of years to degrade, are dirty to manufacture, clog landfills and storm drains and pose a hazard to wildlife.

Amid a days-long heat wave and tinder dry conditions, authorities across the tri-city region are warning residents to be extra vigilant this Fourth of July holiday. Local authorities say no fireworks are safe and sparklers, which can reach temperatures of more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, can still be dangerous and result in severe burns or spark fires. Fireworks are illegal in Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and all unincorporated areas of Los Angeles, and authorities this week asked residents to notify public safety officials if they see any out of the ordinary.

And then there were nine. Nine of 10 candidates spent last Thursday evening answering questions and giving speeches as to why they deserve a vote for one of the six open spots on the Crescenta Valley Town Council. The tenth-candidate, Todd Thornbury, was out of town with family, and unable to attend the two-hour forum, which took up most of the time allotted for the regular Town Council meeting. The next day, one of the nine candidates, Susie Fighera, withdrew her bid, citing a medical condition and her surprise at the amount of time council members are expected to put in to fulfill their duties on the council.
