Letter: Alex production is a sign of the future

Sometimes a small step leads to a big leap forward. Think Neil Armstrong, the moon and advances in the space program that followed.

Letter: Diagonal crosswalk is without purpose

Letter: Diagonal crosswalk is without purpose

Really! Do we really need a diagonal crosswalk at the intersection of Ocean View Boulevard and Honolulu Avenue? I walk Montrose regularly, and I don't see why it...

Letter: Collectors appear to be mixing waste

On Feb. 9 I observed the garbage truck collecting both our trash and our yard waste. I’ve seen this happening several times. Why are they doing this? It is just a waste of effort separating trash.

Letter: Residents need to use their votes

Glendale residents have peppered this Mailbag with complaint after complaint about the City Council’s relentless approval of new building projects. Using this public forum, residents have pleaded with the City Council to please, please, please stop the madness and impose a building moratorium....

Letter: Quality of life needs addressing

Glendale has been my home for the past 26 years. During that time it has been sad to watch the transformation of our city. It seems that each year brings new reductions to expenditures and commitments to the commons. By “commons” I mean things like libraries, parks, recreational...

Letter: Candidates forum set for Wednesday

After reading the letter from a disgruntled resident who went to what he thought was a free city council candidates forum only to find out it cost $30, I want everyone to...

Letter: One election sign should suffice

I don’t think candidates running for current City Council vacant seats have the beautification of Glendale at heart when they place more than one election sign on private properties. Ultimately these candidates have another agenda in mind. I am a licensed Realtor, 38 years a member of the...

Letter: Reader isn't a fan of Sinanyan

I live in Glendale and I am transgender, but I don’t need to be transgender to not like that my city council has on it Zareh Sinanyan, a guy who was called out for online comments he’d made before his election to the council that were deeply misogynistic, racist and homophobic. Of...

Letter: Another high-density project isn't needed

I disagree with your editorial: “Project’s redesign may work out for all,” Feb. 7. To laud the developer for reducing the size to 55...

Op-Ed: Bracing for the water shortages to come

This past sunny, hot weekend, thousands of Angelenos took to the mountains and beaches for hiking, biking, rollerblading and jogging. Many of these people likely had a moment when they looked around with a smile and thought, wow, what a life we live here, how lucky we are, compared to the unlucky...

Letter: Confusion over city clerk's wording

I feel like there's something missing in the article about Nayiri Nahabedian suing to get onto the April 7 ballot, and it's the exact wording of City Clerk Ardy Kassakian's...

Letter: Helicopter raises issues of cost

Re: “Keeping a watchful eye from above,” Feb. 10. While I'm sure there are times when a helicopter makes a difference on police calls, this story confirms suspicions...

Letter: Striking difference between two mayors

In April 2014, Glendale City Council members appointed Zareh Sinanyan as the city's new mayor. Fresh air filled council chambers. From past experience, few expected a new tone from the person who would control the council meetings for the next 12 months.

Letter: Kaplanyan story was one-sided

Re: “Kaplanyan pleads no contest to two counts,” Jan. 30. Disgusting. That would be the only word I would use to describe the...

Letter: Development isn't changing city for better

Re: “City seeks to scale back development incentives,” Feb. 6. I am shocked. A developer promises to include public open space in order to secure...

Letter: The dangers of 'sharing the road'

The Glendale police cited 19 bicyclists for riding on the sidewalk and 10 for riding in the wrong direction. In Los Angeles and in many other surrounding cities, riding bicycles on...

The Jan. 29 story on the candidates running in the next election stated: “an earlier version of this story misstated the reason why the deadline for school board...

Op-Ed: Rail critique was early and short-sighted

Today, many Californians would be astounded to learn that the Golden Gate Bridge was almost never built. The project faced thousands of lawsuits and detractors, including the great photographer Ansel Adams, who said that it would mar the beauty of the San Francisco Bay. Obviously the project moved...

Letter: Kudos to students at the Science Bowl

Congratulations to the Crescenta Valley High School Science Bowl Team and their coach Orenda Tuason for their excellent performance at the Department of Energy Regional Science Bowl this past Saturday at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Letter: There are a few reasons for sharrows

Re: “What good are the painted signs?,” Mailbag, Jan. 28. The little bicycle painted on the ground are “sharrows.” They are a shorthand term for...

Letter: If untrue, what was the attorney doing?

Re: “Kaplanyan pleads no contest to two counts,” Jan. 30. I had to read this article three times to be sure I hadn't missed...

Letter: Club's expansion needs some tweaks

Letter: Open-mic night is for the community

The Montrose Theatre open-mic night is starting up and could use some support. As a resident for 33 years, there is no way better to bring the community together.

Letter: A thank you to the police department

As a 35-year resident on Corona Drive in the Adams Hill area of Glendale, I would like to publicly thank the officers of the Glendale Police Department for their support of our community. We always enjoy their visits on National Night Out. Their response to any questions or concerns has always...

Letter: An answer to a rhetorical question

Re: “The president's veto power is alarming,” Mailbag, Jan 24. I was under the impression our local paper would no longer print this kind of politically...

Letter: On the true form of the government

Re: “The president's veto power is alarming,” Mailbag, Jan 24. First a history lesson for the writer. The only democratic government in history was...

Letter: What good are the painted signs?

I see that the city of Glendale has painted little pictures of bicycles on the pavement along South Glendale Avenue. I wonder what they are supposed to signify for the motorists roaring down that street at near-freeway speeds? Bonus points for hitting a cyclist?

Letter: Diversity doesn't worry Oscar voters

Re: “Read On: Oscar acting nods show lack of diversity,” Jan. 17. Enough! Basta! I've had it. Year after year, the discussion...

Letter: The pros and cons of library upgrades

Re: “Ballot wording in the works,” Jan. 14. Why not have a fifth referendum on the ballot, say a Measure “L” (the “L” standing for Library) regarding...

Letter: The president's veto power is alarming

The United States is no longer a democracy where the people are considered. We are at the mercy of a dictator who has vowed to veto anything and everything the new Congress proposes for the good of the country.

Letter: In strong defense of Adams Hill

Re: “Adams Hill remains forgotten Watts,” Mailbag, Jan. 14. I was quite surprised upon reading the letter claiming that Adams Hill is the “forgotten...

Letter: The city should cover its bus stops

At the Jan. 13 Glendale City Council meeting, a disabled gentlemen spoke before the City Council regarding the lack of protected covering at many Glendale’s bus stops. He specifically mentioned that there was no overhead protection during the rainy season. We would like to expand on this...

Letter: It's easy to judge when it's hard to tell

Re: “Two of many issues of traffic safety,” Mailbag, Jan 14. The letter writer states that he has an issue with healthy drivers parking in a disabled space...

Letter: Adams Hills remains 'forgotten Watts'

Over the many years, when my and my neighbors' hopeful patience gets exhausted, I write again and again. Many times my tone is a prayer and then, at other times, it is very resolute.

Letter: Two of many issues of traffic safety

I have lived in Glendale since 1979, and with each passing year, the number of inconsiderate drivers seems to rise at a dangerous rate. I will write on only two issues; but there are others that need to be addressed.

Letter: Parking, new theater make little sense

Letter: Parking, new theater make little sense

I read the article in Friday's paper about the construction beginning at the Panda Inn site. What dismays me is to read that the parking lot is to...

Letter: Public engagement, democracy's lifeblood

Term limits are a bad idea. Although it seems a good thing to keep elected officials from becoming entrenched, like so many other oversimplified solutions it has unintended consequences. When elected officials are constantly worrying about the next office to strive for, they have less time to...

Letter: Observations on Najarian, Weaver

In the News-Press article, “A year of developments in the news,” Jan. 1, it was stated “Councilman Ara Najarian, who typically voted...

Letter: News-Press lacked coverage of float

Letter: News-Press lacked coverage of float

It was sad enough that Glendale had no float in this year's Rose Parade, but to overlook the opportunity to report on a float representative of a major portion of Glendale's population is just utterly embarrassing and hurtful. There was no extensive coverage of the first Armenian-American float in...

Op-Ed: Focusing on traffic safety will be high priority

The city of Glendale continues to experience a high number of automobile versus pedestrian traffic collisions, and this status quo is unacceptable. The Glendale Police Department and the Glendale Public Works Department do not regard traffic crashes as mere "accidents," but rather as preventable...

Letter: Interest in the party house story

I read with interest the section of your 2014 highlights

Op-Ed: A New Year's message from the city manager

The New Year is typically a time for reflection. For better or worse, such reflection is a balance between perception and reality. Both of these dynamics are powerful and, often, where you stand depends on where you sit. While 2014 was a year of lively public engagement on matters related to quality...

Letter: Praise for GHS performers at Rose Parade

Letter: Praise for GHS performers at Rose Parade

From the minute the exuberant drum corps appeared in the bleachers and bounded onto the parade route I was entranced! The dancers attired in colorful outfits were exciting to watch as they danced in youthful enthusiasm. I loved it! Then, this morning, my News-Press headlines informed me that the...
