The increasing number of students at Glendale Community College is obvious to me as a second-year student. As more students try to crowd in, continuing students have serious problems adding or registering in required classes for their majors ("GCC faces more cuts," June 23).
Instead of decreasing the number of classes to save money, the college should admit fewer or, at least, select students. Although new students have the right to use their community college, it is not fair to deprive current students of the ability to continue their education in a timely manner.
If the college has such a serious budget problem, why are so many students being admitted each semester?
While watching TV the other day on the proceedings of affordable-housing Section 8 vouchers for veterans, I was appalled that Mayor Ara Najarian was in "staunch opposition" to putting military veterans in front of the waiting list for affordable housing ("Vets to front of the queue? July 16).
Najarian was more concerned that it could create a major backlash from the thousands of people already in line. So what, Mayor! To the thousands of non-veterans, did they risk their lives and fortunes so others could live free and enjoy the fruits of this country? Did these non-veterans come to Glendale disabled, limbs missing and despondent?
