I am writing to ask Greg Hiscott (“Enforce the noise laws,” April 7, Glendale News-Press) if I can use his letter in our Burbank Forum page. We will make a few changes, like substitute Burbank for Glendale, the Village for the Americana. We don’t have the Beeline buses, but we do have loud cars, bikes, window-down SUVs, helicopters and loud, smelly fire department vehicles driving through the Village and up East Palm on their way back from coffee breaks. In Burbank, I don’t think leadership, including the police, is aware of noise problems.

I heard the debate between Rep. James Rogan and state Sen. Adam Schiff and could not believe what I heard. Schiff came right out and lied to the listeners of this debate. Schiff lied by saying that Rogan never supported trigger locks to be included in fire arm sales. In fact, Rogan voted to provide trigger locks in the sale of firearms. Schiff's pattern of lies and deceit just continue. Remember when Schiff sent out a mailer saying that Rogan had never helped the Armenian community?
