Having recently spent a couple of days in downtown San Diego,
where Bosa Development projects are thriving and making a significant
impact on the skyline, it's not surprising that our City Council is
up in arms.
Bosa has an excellent reputation for building attractive and
quality projects (check their website: o7www.bosadev.comf7) and
Glendale officials need to do everything humanly possible to put the
project back on track.
It's completion would be a worthy complement to the Americana at
Brand Town Center and might well help to attract new businesses and
shore-up tenancy in our office towers.

Some thoughts on war
Here is something to think about.
War is genocide. Genocide is war, and the innocent are always
caught between the hate and revenge that seems to never stop.
And there are people who want to keep it alive, so think about it.
Left-leaning columnist doing a disservice
Regarding 30-year high school history teacher Dan Kimber's "A pot
needs stirring at times," Sept. 30, if Kimber could only refrain from
patting himself on the back and stop thinking of himself as God's
gift to the teaching profession, he may realize that when he is in
the classroom and he "strays from the script," as he puts it, and
promotes his pretty far left political views to his high school
seniors that his is not encouraging independent thinking but to the
contrary, again as he puts it, herding his students like sheep into
His views are so far left that Michael Moore would be very proud
He is way beyond being just anti-war. In his column last week he
seemed to have a problem with church-goers.
If you are religious and don't hate the president you must be a
religious zealot that is plotting to take over the White House.
And then of course there is the old left wing reliable -- "class
warfare, the haves (Bush's people) and the have nots."
And then let's not forget Bush went into Iraq solely for the oil
and to make Halliburton billions.
When a public high school teacher drills his students with nothing
but negativity and his own personal views (under the guise of opening
their minds) he is not only doing a disservice to his students but
also to the parents of students.
A disservice to parents who do not share his feelings and do not
hate Bush, a disservice to parents who do not think that the USA is
the cause of all the worlds problems.
Apparently Kimber believes that when he "strays from the script"
he knows what is best for your child.
I'm disappointed that the Glendale Unified School District
Will they let a far-right teacher teach students to worship and
praise Bush and bash all his opponents?
I think not and they should not. If there ever was a poster boy
for promoting school vouchers, Kimber is it.
