People like my mother are on a fixed income and cannot afford the increase and if he plans to run for governor in four years, Los Angeles taxpayers will remember how he is trying to screw the homeowner. Oh, I also read the City Council wants to float a bond to fix streets. My mother’s street hasn’t been repaved since her house was built in 1947. Will her street be repaved? Not a chance. There is no accountability for the money just like the school bond money. Wake up, people, vote these jerks out of office the next time they run. Maxine Flam North Hollywood Recent history Re: “Mayor backs trash fee” (April 13): So much for Mayor Villaraigosa’s great ideas his true liberal reputation had to get out, in actual actions. Doubling the taxes, right out of the chute. Villaraigosa had better look into what Gov. Gray Davis ran into doubling the car fees … have you forgotten? Or, George Bush Senior saying, “Read my lips”? You liberals have never have seen a tax you didn’t like. Raising water prices, raising power prices, doubling collection fees. Would someone explain to me, when are they going to double my Social Security so that I can pay for all of this garbage? Methods of raising more money so our politicians can steal it for their own uses? William Conroy Northridge More money Re: “Mayor backs trash fee” (April 13): So our mayor is going to put it to us again; he wants more money from the sitting ducks that don’t move. Why doesn’t he ask all his illegal-immigrant friends that he was cheering for at the protests? If he taxed every illegal vendor in the city, we would not have to go after the homeowners. It must be getting close to voting time everybody is starting to tell you how much money they need, like the schools that are not earthquake-safe. What have they been doing all this time? Nothing! Joe Pinoy Lozano Mission Hills Who listens? A government that is only willing to listen to its people through wiretaps is a dangerous government indeed. Laurien DuTremble Northridge Living wage for illegals Re: “Immigration actions spread” (April 11): Your headline is inaccurate. The issue is illegal immigration, not all immigration. The comparison to any people who founded this nation being immigrants is inaccurate, they were not illegal and they were not dependent on taxpayers to subsidize them. The Los Angeles City Council needs to have the mayor explain his actions. And the mayor needs to inquire of all the manufacturers and employers in this city why they are not paying living wages. If the mayor had done that, instead of leading protests on a school day, maybe the city would not have had the expense of restraining thousands of truant children the following week. Lorraine C. Mabbett West Hills Allegiance to laws Re: “Angelenos march against illegal-immigration bill” (April 11): Wow, I feel so uninformed. I had no idea that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is an illegal immigrant and cleans toilets for a living. The reality is he is an American citizen who has been elected by other American citizens as mayor of Los Angeles, a major city in the United States. As an elected official, he is sworn to uphold the laws of our state and our nation. We must have laws that are enforced to maintain a civil society and protect our citizens and legal residents. If we don’t, chaos will ensue. This is an issue of allegiance to the laws of this country and to its law-abiding citizens. Monica Plattenberger Northridge Katie earned it Re: “Katie Couric” (Your Opinions, April 10): I disagree with Hal Rothberg’s assessment of Katie Couric. I have watched Katie for 15 years and she is well qualified to do the job. Is the news media for the “Good Ol’ Boys Club” only? Women have fought hard over the years to stop being second-class citizens but I am finding out that to some men we will always be considered second-class citizens, no matter what we do to change the image. Katie does not have to be compared to Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather or Edward R. Murrow. Katie has her own individuality and that is what has made her successful in her career. She will do a good job for CBS. Brynie Brackin Pacoima Where counts Re: “Tipoff” column, (April 10): I have no doubt that Gloria Molina and 19 other Latina leaders are deserving of recognition for their work in promoting Hispanic leadership. What I do question is why the Hispanic Business magazine, sponsor of the awards, feels the need to take the celebration to Caesar’s Palace? Surely, there are appropriate venues in the Los Angeles area. Or the state of California? To paraphrase a recent TV ad “What money is earned in L.A. should stay in L.A.!” Yolanda Petroski Granada Hills Give them a break Re: “Senior cross over ticket” (April 10): Fast signals, slow people. We drivers all hate to wait for long signals, but we also have to respect those who can’t walk fast give them a break. What if it was your mom or dad crossing that crosswalk? Be tolerant. Bill Humason North Hollywood Obeying the law Re: “Senior cross over ticket” (April 10): Yes, Mayvis Coyle deserved a ticket. I support Officer Kelly. He was trying to protect her, and us motorists, from a serious accident. Officer Kelly was doing his job. Many times I see people starting to cross the street after the “No Walk” sign is flashing. I see people walk diagonally in the middle of the block across Foothill Boulevard in Sunland/Tujunga. They put their hand up signaling for cars to stop for them and they are not in a marked crosswalk. Pedestrians need to make sure it is safe before they cross a street, and motorists need to be aware of pedestrians, whether they are in a marked crosswalk or not. We need to be courteous of one another and obey the law. Judy Beer Sunland And he pays well The words “leak,” “classified” and “fire” mean whatever George Bush wants them to mean. Bush is obviously a great fan of Humpty Dumpty and the book “Through the Looking Glass,” better known as “Alice in Wonderland.” Because, it was there that author Lewis Carroll wrote the following: ” When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less.’ ” A little further on, Alice says, “That’s a great deal to make one word mean.” When I make a word do a lot of work like that,’ said Humpty Dumpty, I always pay it extra.’ ” Now we finally know where George Bush really got his presidential education. David Silverman Chatsworth Financial vacuum Iran has become a strong financial and political figure in that area of the world. The United States and European countries are cutting aid to Palestine. That financial Palestinian vacuum will give Iran the opportunity to step in and become a benefactor and collect thousands of unemployed young Palestinian to be trained in what has become an Iranian specialty: terrorism. Terrorism to be exported all over the world. I hope I am wrong. Dante F. Rochetti West Hillslast_img read more
