This letter is written in support of Garry Ackerman and the Glendale Rose Float Assn., who have given of themselves voluntarily in service to this community for 33 years. Shame on the City Council for how they have treated this group of committed Glendale citizens. Having come from a small town in the Midwest, I can attest firsthand to the value and benefit of how - through volunteering - a community grows and thrives as I saw my parents spend their adult lives doing just this.

Rosemont Middle School teachers and staff were treated to an appreciation lunch served by parents of children who attended Mountain Avenue Elementary School. Since September, a PTA member, Kathy Turansky has been catering lunches on her own for the teachers. When other parents heard about it they decided to help out. Some Crescenta Valley schools cater a teacher's appreciation lunch once and sometimes twice a week. Each class takes a lunch, comes up with a theme and caters. This is a way for parents to show their appreciation for all the teachers do, said Susan Artime, a Mountain Avenue parent that now has a child at Rosemont.

The ordinary gas station houses pumps and the occasional slushy machine. It sells refreshments, cigarettes and car deodorizers in the shape of trees, but Glendale artist Michael Sheehan has taken the ideal gas station way out of context. Using his own resources, Sheehan filled the 1,700 cubic feet Streamline Moderne Gas Station in Adams Hill Mini-Park with 2,000 transparent balloons in an attempt to alter the perception of everyday life, he said. The project, entitled “gasstationinstallation: entropy” will become more dynamic over the nine days of the instillation.

Creating Rapport: People don't care until you care. Extend yourself and care first for others. Conversations: In order to stimulate conversations, use Who? What? Where? When? Why? questions. Ask open-ended questions that evoke more than "yes" or "no." Maybe, ask "What do you think?" Listen with your heart and head. Share yourself using some responses from their statements. Encourage "verbal ping-pong" in which the conversation goes back and forth easily between both people.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE ? From the way they acted, it would have seemed that the people at Good Day adult day health care center were welcoming an international movie star Monday. They were actually welcoming Glendale's firefighters. About a dozen firemen received a standing ovation Monday morning as they walked into the Good Day center, where patients and staff hosted an appreciation luncheon for the firefighters who many called their "rescue angels." "We've been here for more than six years and they have been so wonderful with us," center administrator Shakeh Bogharian said.

This past week, a team of young men from Southern California traveled to Newark, Ohio to participate in the Babe Ruth World Series. Our family served as a "host" family and welcomed two of the players from the San Gabriel Valley team into our home. Little did we know what kind of impact Trevor Bell and Danny Bonilla, and the rest of the team, would have on our lives. From the very first day, we felt that they were a part of our family. The team showed respect to our family and friends, and a great appreciation for anything we did for them.

I want to express my appreciation to the Burbank Leader for its endorsement in the recent primary election and, perhaps more importantly, to your coverage of the candidates and issues. Every Burbank resident who voted in the Feb. 22 primary election was the beneficiary of your coverage. During the campaign, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with residents across the city who shared their ideas and suggestions for dealing with the many issues that confront our city. As the campaign moves ahead, I look forward to continuing that dialogue on my door-to-door walks.

Charles Phoenix, humorist, author, food-crafter and gleeful guide to pop culture at its kitschiest and most off-beat, will serve up his one-of-a-kind look at mid-20th century building design in “Charles Phoenix: Architecture in LA!” on Sunday at Art Center College of Design's Ahmanson Auditorium in Pasadena. The show, presented in Phoenix's signature, “histo-tainment,” retro slide-show style, is part of an architecture-themed lecture series hosted by Friends of the Gamble House, the support organization for the 1908 Arts and Crafts-style Gamble House in Pasadena, designed by Charles and Henry Greene.

Glendale Community College was never part of her higher-education plan, Associated Students President Janet Shamilian told her fellow graduates Friday. She had always dreamed of attending UCLA and enrolled at the community college only after being rejected by her first choice. "I promised myself all along that I would make my experience here the absolute best," Shamilian said. "For this reason I got involved in student government my first semester because I felt I could make a significant impact on this school.

Glendale resident Johnny Ventura could not be more pleased about the tree mulch dumped in his driveway on a recent morning. The 64-year-old retiree uses the free urban wood waste from the Public Works Department for his front and back yards, as well as the walkway on the side of his house. The city's code allows the mulch as ground cover to meet the requirement that 50% of all setback areas be landscaped with live plant material. Ventura has taken advantage of Glendale's free tree mulch distribution five times since learning about the program two months ago. "After seeing what I did, I called for my next door neighbor, and then my daughter wanted some too," Ventura said.

I'm writing to express my thanks to the City Council for the fresh pavement and sharrows on Chevy Chase Drive. I ride the street regularly on my bicycle commute. I'm not sure how motorists will react, but the improvements certainly welcome more people to ride their bicycles. The benefits will include reduced traffic congestion, reduced pollution, and better safety for bicyclists. Well done!

Firefighters were the toast of Glendale and Burbank on Saturday, as both cities celebrated Fire Service Appreciation Day with food, demonstrations, and station tours. Both firehouses were filled with families, posing for pictures with firehouses, police dogs and firefighters. “I don’t know why I haven’t taken advantage of this before, especially because the little one wants to be a policeman or fireman,” said Christina Daniels, a Glendale resident. Her 10-year-old son, Nicholas, knocked down an orange cone with a fire hose.
