eventually lost the property.
Enter owner No. 2, also an individual who has wealth and, I assume, a
modicum of intelligence. He certainly must have, or should have, been
aware of the problems associated with El Tovar.
Nevertheless, he purchases the property. He then buys his neighbor's
property - something I'm sure few others could do at the drop of the hat.
When concerns persist, he claims he is being treated unfairly, attempting
to garner sympathy. I'm certain a lawsuit is just around the corner.
Realistically, however, we must recognize that Boss Tweed politics
continues to thrive in Glendale.
Most Glendale homeowners must step through a minefield, crawl low through
barbed wire and kiss the Planning Department's ring to replace a fence
board the wind blew down.
Let us make El Tovar our Berlin Wall. Residents could take turns breaking
it apart with sledgehammers. Then we could bottle the pieces and sell
them at the Rose Bowl flea market.

Arrogance will lose 27th for Republicans
The name-calling of Republicans by Theodore X. Garcia ("15 pigeons do not
make a flock," Jan. 29) is one of the things that gives us Republicans a
We, sir, are not sheep to be led blindly to vote for a selection by a
hierarchy that has done nothing but embarrass the Republicans of the 27th
Mr. Garcia calling others in the party 'turn-coats' and other names is
not the way to whip everyone into line. Perhaps he forgets: like him, we
are able to read and go to vote for the party of our choice - a party, I
might add, that we believe in, one that until now has listened to our
U.S. Rep. Jim Rogan (R-Glendale) decided to follow the Clinton-haters in
Washington and failed to do what we, the people, elected him to do. For
this, the party has rewarded Mr. Rogan.
I refuse to vote for someone who will be led blindly and who will not
discern for himself what is good for the voters of the district who put
him into office. We need the GOP to find someone that will look out for -
and be a part of - this community.
