A local taxpayers group is challenging a city rule requiring opponents of proposed new fees to show identification when filing a protest. City Manager Ken Farfsing said he had asked the city attorney to take another look at the law relating to identification requirement, after receiving a complaint from the South Pasadena Taxpayers Assn. However, Farfsing said, he and City Atty. Edward Lee had drawn up the requirement and believe it is reasonable. "There is no law against it," said Farfsing.

Look who's backing more taxes in South Pasadena. The taxpayers association. "There is no free lunch," said Tom Biesek, founder of the South Pasadena Taxpayers Assn. "You have got to pay for it." Funny. It doesn't sound like a taxpayers association. But Biesek's group is endorsing a bond measure to raise $28.7 million for school repairs. "This is 1995, not 1895, but a lot of the buildings look 1895," Biesek said. "You cannot teach in broken-down schoolrooms."
