I live in Glendale, having done so since 1965, so my interest in Grand View cemetery is strong.
Writing promotes tuning in to issues
Recently one of my assignments for the creative writing class I teach at Summerville Casa Glendale was to write a letter to the Glendale News-Press Community Forum.
One of my students wrote a letter to you and was anxiously awaiting to see if you would print it. Wednesday was the day it appeared. She was absolutely thrilled to see words she had written in print. I believe you may have a new writer for this space. In fact it may inspire others to write also. She is an excellent example for the rest of the class and perhaps for more of your readers.
No matter how many writers to your paper complain about things here, we all love Glendale. That's one thing for sure, you don't take the time and effort to write if you don't really care.
Bar problems are disturbing the peace
I am a resident of Montrose and I live on the corner of Sycamore and Roselawn avenues, around the corner from a bar and dance hall called The Mix ("Montrose residents complain about bar," Aug. 29).
I moved here in May of 2005 and have been awakened in the middle of the night, several times each week, by patrons of The Mix. You see, they park on both sides of Sycamore and both sides of Roselawn. The problems begin when these noisy, inconsiderate people leave the bar. They are usually in large groups, screaming and laughing and sometimes fighting with each other. They slam their car doors, rev their engines, screech their tires and frequently go right through the stop sign on Sycamore at Roselawn.
