Schiff butting in on airport debate I don't know why it seems that liberal Democrats like State Sen. Adam Schiff always go to big government agencies to solve problems that are best handled at the local level. Point being the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport issue. While he tries to get things from big government agencies that we're not going to get anyway, Schiff continually seems to snub his nose at the power of the people, probably thinking, as most liberals do, that government knows what is best for the people.

It is, in short, a fine time to be a Democrat. The American two-party system has swung back and forth like a pendulum over the last century, with neither the Democrats nor the Republicans putting more than two consecutive candidates in the White House since 1928. Sometimes, the two parties run neck-and-neck; Tuesday, it was little short of a Democratic free-for-all, as Sen. Barack Obama won the presidency in a landslide, and his fellow party members decisively took the House and Senate.

PASADENA — When the election polling stations closed at 8 p.m. Tuesday, a dry-erase board at incumbent Adam Schiff's campaign headquarters at the Pasadena Hilton was scrawled with numbers indicating that the Democratic candidate had captured 55% of the absentee ballots for the 29th District Congressional seat. And Schiff's campaign staff, contributors and supporters were optimistic he would keep the lead. "Adam is phenomenally great about all of the issues I care about," said Scott Glovsky, who came out to wish his cousin well.

Sometimes I ask myself "What makes me? What have other people or experiences done to change me? Would I be the same person had they never existed?" My answer is a very complex one. Through the years, it has been a myriad of people, places, attitudes, experiences, memories, joys, disappointments, inspirations, changes, and developments that have formed the people you are reading about today. The most significant and inspirational human being who has profoundly affected my life has been Congressman James Rogan.

The accomplishments of retired choir instructor Mary Rago were celebrated in song Saturday at The Castaway. The Zonta Club of Burbank honored Rago as its 2006 Woman of the Year. She recently retired after 39 years of teaching music to young people. For 32 of those years, Rago taught in the Burbank Unified School District, starting at John Muir Middle School and finishing her career at John Burroughs High School. She inspired, challenged and forced her students to reach deeply inside themselves to find the best they had to offer, Zonta President Jennifer Wyatt said.

Every March, during Women's History Month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) honors one outstanding woman from each of the communities in the 29th Congressional District. They include: Alhambra, Altadena, Burbank, Glendale, Monterey Park, Pasadena, San Gabriel, South Pasadena and Temple City. “Recipients of the 'Woman of the Year award' come from all walks of life and represent the thousands of women who make a positive impact in our region,” Rep. Schiff said in a statement. “I urge constituents to contact my office and let us know about some of the admirable women in our communities by nominating them for this year's award.” While there are no specific criteria for nomination, Rep. Schiff looks for women who - through their work or volunteerism - have improved the quality of life in our community.
