Letter: Crews rescue bird, faith in humanity

On Tuesday, Aug. 25, Glendale Water & Power personnel came to my home to rescue an entangled tiny bird from the telephone wires. They did not have to spend their time doing this but were happy to help.

Re: “Scouts hike 94 miles, mule and all,” Aug. 19.

Ms. Melikian is so correct about the hundreds of apartment houses being built in Glendale and the associated traffic to go with it....

Letter: Glendale's code enforcement is an issue

I have observed unequal enforcement of Glendale Municipal Code violations for several years. I informed Mayor Sinanyan and the other City Council members of this practice in early April 2015. I immediately received a response from Ara Najarian who indicated he would investigate this issue and report...

Letter: An idea regarding vacant building in Glendale

Letter: Glendale Aquatics program makes a big splash

On a recent evening, my family participated for the fifth time in the Glendale Aquatics program’s end-of-summer banquet at Pacific Pool. While enjoying the company of other parents as we watched our children celebrate their accomplishments in the pool with their swimming instructors and...

Letter: Developments' costs outweigh benefits in Glendale

I would like to propose an ease on apartment complex development. It has caused incredible traffic in the city of Glendale, and in turn more air pollution. The city of Glendale can only handle so much housing.

Letter: Use recycled water to save Glendale's old trees

I am surprised that the city and or residents have not implemented the use of reclaimed water by receiving it at various hydrant locations into a tank trailer or watering truck and using it to water trees and shrubs. Glendale has many large older trees such as the pines on Mountain Street that can...

Letter: Concerns about Glendale construction

I found Mr. Greg Hiscott’s letter very interesting. My concerns about all the construction revolve around why the city needs to give financial...

Letter: Scott Ochoa's response needed more explaining

I read with mixed emotions Greg Hiscott’s letter in the Aug. 8 Mailbag. He contended that Glendale approved the massive apartment building...

Letter: Another take on Scott Ochoa's response

I am interested in learning more about the city of Glendale’s fiscal situation and its position on the importance and benefits of the Downtown Specific Plan and think the city should do more to communicate such information to the public. I do not think it was necessary though for City...

Op-Ed: Understand the business of local government

In a letter to the editor titled “Glendale has built issues of its own," La Cañada Flintridge resident Greg Hiscott argues that the...

Letter: Ideas for handling traffic, parking in Glendale

In the last few years, Glendale has seen remarkable growth in the population, which has resulted in more buildings, more cars and more traffic. While these changes are to be expected, changes to how the city should maneuver its traffic and parking should have been addressed at the same time.

Letter: Glendale property remains an eyesore

The city bought the property in 2002 because they needed some of the land to build the Fairmont connector, and it has remained an...

Letter: Congress must act to restore the VRA

The Voting Rights Act turns 50 — and Congress must restore its protections. Aug. 6 marked the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Act, landmark civil rights legislation for the protection of voters from discrimination. The VRA is one of the most significant laws ever passed by...

Letter: Glendale has built issues of its own

I am writing to add comment to Steve Warheit’s letter to the editor. Mr. Warheit claims that Mike Mohill is wrong in his earlier letter...

Read On: There's an app for angry mobs

Read On: There's an app for angry mobs

All anyone wanted to talk about this week was the story of the Dentist and the Lion. Sounds like the title of a children's book. But of course the tragic tale of Cecil and Minnesota dental practitioner Walter Palmer is anything but the stuff of fairy tales.

Letter: Montrose mobile car-washing service is all wet

I have been trying to follow Glendale’s rules on outside watering and conservation. After observing my surrounding neighborhood, I am disgusted with the blatant abuse and violations right in front of everyone’s eyes.

Letter: Glendale's Big Apple aspiration

I moved to Glendale in the early ’80s because I fell in love with the quaint homes, the low-key city center that offered serene views of the mountains, the safe neighborhoods. It seemed to boast a City Council that had made good plans and intended to stick by them. Glendale was a small...

Letter: Generous pensions hurt middle class

Recently, Glendale City Council announced the acceptance of a $155,000 grant from Los Angeles County for our park maintenance. For many years, grants from federal, state and county governments have financed most of our city parks. Today, barely 10 % of the city’s general fund is being used for...

letter: Left in the lurch by Glendale's high rent

My building sold. It's being renovated. They are getting people out one floor at a time by doubling the rent. This is legal — there is no rent control in Glendale. This week, tenants on my floor got their notices.

Letter: Riverwalk project is a worthy effort

Viewing the July 21 City Council discussion almost made our heads explode. That said, a thank-you to council members Friedman and...

Letter: Another call for development moratorium in Glendale

The letter by Theodore Polychronis of Glendale is spot on. Numerous letters have appeared in the News-Press over the past few weeks condemning the...

Letter: Vote raises another question

Concerning your story on improper voting in the Democrat delegate election, where there may have been up to 30%...

Letter: Kudos to CDP for handling revote

The Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEM) vote in January was flawed. Not because of who won or who lost, and not because of “racism,” “diversity,” “fraud” or the other barbs exchanged by the opposing camps in recent months. The election was flawed because...

Letter: Concern about Glendale Unified's potential property swap

I can’t believe it! The entire community is up in arms concerning overdevelopment in Glendale, and today I read about a proposed real estate swap...

Letter: Support for clean energy in Glendale

I applaud the Glendale City Council for voting unanimously to divest from the San Juan Coal-Fired Plant. The cost of the electricity from the plant...

Letter: A call for a building moratorium, etc.

As I see things, the Glendale city government has evolved into a dysfunctional entity that has allowed the unbridled construction of monstrous apartment/condo buildings blessed with numerous construction and zoning variances.

Regarding the proposed development on Brand Boulevard at Dryden Street: By the project applicant and architect Aram...

Letter: A drought of neighborliness

I have two conundrums.

Letter: Will there be a park or won't there?

Letter: Will there be a park or won't there?

I wish to thank my neighbors who spoke out against the oversized mixed-use development proposed at Brand Boulevard and Dryden Street. Why would we want...

Letter: Time for a building moratorium

We are Glendale homeowners and yesterday we attended a meeting of the planning commission, which was held regarding the proposed variances for the proposed 1100 Brand Boulevard construction. Don't you think that considering the severe drought in California and the need to control our water usage...

Letter: Should a permit cost more than a project?

My daughter had a fence that the city told her needed to be replaced. This fence is on an alley and at most 30 feet long. Over a weekend as a family project we all replaced this fence. Then she was told she needed a permit to replace an existing fence. She went to city, was sent to several...

Letter: Fine by Glendale police was unfair

I am perplexed, and frankly annoyed too. Glendale Police Sgt. Jeff Newton was quoted as saying that if someone or something looks...

Letter: Not a fan of constant flyovers in La Cañada

We live in La Cañada, just northeast of Glendale. We have lived here for 13 years. We often see the Glendale Police Department helicopter flying over our area. In fact, we see the helicopter so often, we were discussing ways to avoid the GPD helicopter flyovers. We think that one way to get...

Letter: Appalled by Glendale's overdevelopment

As a former 60-year resident of Los Angeles County and former 40-year resident of Glendale, I am appalled every time I read of the relentless building in Glendale.

Letter: Save some land for parks

Have the powers that be lost their minds — $150 million for a roughly 5-acre park over the 134 Freeway? Why...
