I learned that we will all have to pay higher bills for water because our neighbors ignored Glendale Water & Power’s request for us to cut back 10% of their water use. I suggest a letter-writing campaign to our City Council members to seriously limit development in already overcrowded Glendale.
Retiring teacher went the extra mile
Many thanks to the recently departed Crescenta Valley Sun for covering the retirement of Rosemont teacher Christine Collins-Cross (“She can ‘Cross’ this off her list,” July 3).
It is every parent’s dream that their children encounter teachers like her. While most teachers were running out the door at 3 p.m., Collins-Cross would stay for hours, patiently and kindly helping students finish their work. My son benefited immensely from her class because she “wouldn’t let her students quit.” I have never seen a teacher with such dedication and determination. Every child was special to her.
I thank her for years of exceptional teaching and wish her good luck in her new career.
Peace be with In Theory contributor
I hope the Rev. Bryan Griem read Pastor Clifford L. “Skip” Lindeman’s entry in the In Theory column of July 4 titled “Bearing arms in church.” Backing up his belief with scripture, Lindeman reminded us that Jesus was a pacifist.
I suggest that the “thwarting evil” movie scene that Griem refers to is a quick fix, not a long-term solution to the problem of people’s misuse of guns. Fighting violence with violence does not defeat violence. Misuse of guns is a symptom of human sin, not the cure.
