"He multiplieth words without knowledge." Although I might not be interpreting it the way the Biblical scholar does, that quotation from the Book of Job describes my feelings about my interactions with various county offices during the past few weeks. I have asked a lot of questions and gotten little information, expressed in complicated statements. I expect double talk during political campaigns; I resent it when staff members (whose salaries are derived from my taxes)

Indeed, it was anything but an ominous setting on Tuesday as kids and parents and soccer filled the Glendale Sports Complex. Frank Pace was his same frenzied self along the sideline, while Kathy Desmond was the quiet, insightful one. And, as they've been in all eight of their games this season, the Tologs of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy were the better team.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN God always answers prayer. It might not be the way we want, but he always answers. Sometimes that answer is yes and sometimes it is no. I started praying a long time ago for God to change my heart according to his will -- not mine -- so I could follow the burning desires of my heart. In other words, I had wasted too much time asking God for things he didn't want me to have or do. When I was a fashion model, I prayed to obtain certain modeling jobs.

Chuck Benedict Successful television shows (including the tee-to-green coverage of Tiger Woods) are those that pay off in the ratings books. This summer, the networks are hand-feeding couch potatoes with two new, highly promoted basic caterings. One makes it possible for people with photographic memories and/or bents for trivia quizzes to survive a series of questions in pursuit of up to a million dollars. Another format depicts groups of people who are bound together in unusual living situations to win recognition and dollars by surviving the votes of those among them who gradually want to eliminate all but themselves.

This is in response to Harry Zavos' letter ("Wound continues to fester," June 12) and to all the Armenian residents of Glendale about the lowering of the flag. I would very much like to suggest something that will make everybody happy and bring light to the subject with some questions that I want answered by every one of those yelling foul. First, anyone who wants the U.S. flag lowered to half-staff should go and buy one flag, take it home and lower it. Now for the questions.

Community leaders had the chance to prove just how smart they were at the 21st annual Smart-A-Thon on Wednesday afternoon at the Verdugo Hills Hospital’s Community Room. The event is a fundraiser for the Mary Pinola Educational Endowment Fund which has distributed thousands of dollars to educational programs in the Crescenta Valley since 1988. Thirty teams of four competed for the honor of being named “Smartest in the Crescenta Valley,” however the tricky questions seemed chosen to confound more than test contestants’ knowledge.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- John Robert Christopher may be running for office, but he doesn't think of himself as a politician. Moreover, the City Council candidate said, he doesn't have much fondness for the mainstream politics that dominate most of the election debate. "I believe the city should be run by neighbors, not by City Hall," he said. "We should make sure the power goes straight back to the neighbors." Christopher's platform is based on his philosophy of local government.

GLENDALE - After a slow beginning in the Pacific League, things have turned around for the Glendale High boys' soccer team. That's not the case for Burbank. Glendale and Burbank competed against each other Tuesday in the first of two league meetings. Thanks to a career-best effort from Avo Haroutunyan, Glendale gained the upper hand. Haroutunyan finished with seven goals and one assist to power host Glendale to a 12-1 win against Burbank at Moyse Field. Haroutunyan had four goals in the first half to spur the Nitros, who improved to 9-5-2, 3-2-1 in league.

PASADENA - Heading into its contest with host Muir High, the Glendale football team knew it had a tough hill to climb. The Mustangs - the reigning Pacific League champions - had scored a combined 105 points in their last two games and given up just nine, so it should come as no surprise that the Nitros had their hands full. Glendale proved the latest team to be on the wrong end of a lopsided score, falling to Muir, 40-0, on Friday. In addition to the solid play of the Mustangs (4-1, 2-0 Pacific League)

GLENDALE - Two years removed from his last game with the Los Angeles Lakers, it was obvious that the appeal of NBA Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson has not waned. At least that was the case for a sold-out audience that packed the Alex Theatre on Wednesday evening for “Phil Jackson in conversation with John Salley,” a roughly hour-long conversation and question-and-answer event in the Live Talks LA series that also included a book signing of Jackson's latest work, “Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success.” Jackson, 68, the famed former coach of the Lakers and Chicago Bulls and an NBA champion with the New York Knicks, spent about 45 minutes conversing with TV host and former NBA player John Salley, who played under Jackson in both Chicago and Los Angeles.

Shane Carruth made an impressive debut in 2004 with "Primer," which cost $7,000 and is surely the most complexly structured time-travel film ever made. For that matter, it may be one of the most complexly structured films ever made, period. Carruth seemed to have fallen off the map shortly thereafter. Now, after nine years, his second feature, "Upstream Color," opens this week. There is no real protagonist here. Carruth opts for multiple points of view; sometimes the transitions are so sudden and the durations so short that the movie suggests an "objective" point of view.

On April 15, City Councilman Rafi Manoukian steps into his new role as Glendale's elected treasurer. His soon-to-be-former colleagues have two options: have a special election to fill the two years left in Manoukian's term, or appoint someone that would have to stand for election next year to remain in office.  Appointing a replacement seems tempting. Elections are not cheap; and while the economy seems to be on the move, it's painful to spend money that might be put to any number of other purposes.

Politician and attorney. What a perfect combination to insure you never get a straight answer. Zareh J. Sinanyan is asked a direct question about posting racially divisive comments on the Internet. A simple “yes” or “no” should have been the answer. Instead, we get the great politician/attorney run-around/double talk, never get an answer; and as it turns out, the person who asked the question gets portrayed as mean-spirited. Amazing. If you would be happy having a city councilman who cannot answer a simple question with a simple answer, then most assuredly, vote for Sinanyan.

Re: " Should India send a mission to Mars? ” In Theory, March 3: When asked whether India should launch a scientific mission to Mars, Rev Griem says “Utterly ridiculous…India needs to feed itself, clean its filthy waterways, and get out of its third-world malaise.” However, India is substantially more equal than the United States based upon the Gini coefficient, the standard measure of inequality used by economists. I wonder what he thinks about our spending of more than 600 billion on defense when our infrastructure is falling apart, 50 million Americans live below the poverty line, one in five children go hungry, and our math and science students trail the rest of the world.

A Hollywood woman was arrested Wednesday after allegedly selling bogus Disneyland tickets on Craigslist in Glendale to at least half a dozen families, some of whom didn't learn of the fakery until being turned away at the theme park's gates. The woman, Alisa Yenokyan, 22, was taken into custody about 6 p.m. after she agreed to meet officers who posed as potential Disneyland ticket purchasers at Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue in Los Angeles, Police Det. Jonathan Owen said. The officers responded to one of her Craigslist ads and offered to buy two adult and two child tickets for $50 each, he said.
