The day after the centennial, an exhausted Greenbaum flew to Cabo San
Lucas for some rest and relaxation.
"You work so hard for an event, and the next day it's such a downer,"
he said. "You fall about 150 feet."
Councilman Frank Quintero couldn't hide a chuckle at this week's
council meeting while listening to City Atty. Scott Howard.
Howard had given an extensive opinion on a technical section of NAFTA
and went on, just a few minutes later, to discuss the finer points of the
city's codes on the maintenance of fowl.
"I just want to commend the city attorney on the breadth of the man's
knowledge," Quintero said. "From foreign policy to chicken coops, he's
truly a renaissance attorney."
ON BOOMER DOTAGE
What will baby boomers do for fun when they become senior citizens?
Will they like raucous entertainment even in their dotage? These were the
questions a reporter asked recently while trying to learn more about
Glendale's aging population.
"Well I don't know," was the response of Louise Briley, the recreation
program coordinator for Glendale's Adult Recreation Center. "They might
like bingo. That's what we have to find out."
Since last week was National Emergency Medical Services Week, a
News-Press reporter and photographer spent some time riding along with
two paramedics in an ambulance. On the way to the hospital after picking
up a stroke victim, the paramedic driving the ambulance asked the
reporter to keep an eye out for oncoming cars in intersections.
"It's scary," he said. "I had a guy pass me last week."
But the inconsiderate driver soon learned his lesson -- he was pulled
over at the next intersection by a police officer who saw him racing
passed the ambulance, which had its lights and sirens blazing.
