Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- For Alex Sardar, it's a marriage of two loves -- politics and Armenian issues. The 26-year-old Glendale resident this week stepped into the role of executive director of the Western Region of the Armenian National Committee, in which he will serve as both a political activist and a representative for much of the Armenian community in the city and beyond. "It was just the most ideal way to combine my interest in politics and the passion I have for Armenian issues," he said.

GLENDALE — Chanting and signs filled Pelanconi Park and its surrounding streets Sunday as thousands of people gathered to rally against the protocols for new talks between Armenia and Turkey. The talks are a part of a “road map” agreed upon last spring for normalizing diplomatic relations between Turkey and Armenia and opening the border between them. The proposed deal still must receive Parliamentary approval from both countries. The two countries have long clashed over the mass killings of Armenians in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

After reading Councilman Rafi Manoukian's clarifications in your Community Forum on Jan. 24 ("Chairman clarifies committee selection"), I felt compelled to respond, albeit reluctantly, to the half-truths and insinuations made by Manoukian regarding the Armenian Council of America in the matter of the Genocide Annual Commemorative Event Committee. Frankly, as a civic leader, we expect Manoukian to show leadership and take our concerns into consideration and address them appropriately, but instead, as in the previous article and in this letter, he adamantly refuses to acknowledge the problem and attacks the Armenian Council of America to justify his actions.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A handful of candidates in the U.S. presidential race have made pit stops in the area, all to much local fanfare and national media attention. But another presidential hopeful, in Glendale for a weekend stint soliciting support and outlining his platform, went relatively unnoticed outside the city. Perhaps that’s because he’s running in an election set to take place in February on the other side of the globe in Armenia. For Vahan Hovhannisyan, the current vice speaker in the Armenian Parliament and a candidate for his country’s presidency, Glendale’s significant Armenian population makes it one of the most pivotal stops on his global campaign trail.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- It was an opportunity for those who work to gain recognition for the Armenian community to enjoy a little recognition for themselves. The Western Region of the Armenian National Committee presented its top awards this weekend to two men who have worked to increase awareness about Armenian history, culture and issues. A crowd of more than 600 people, including several political figures, turned out to the ANC annual banquet in Encino on Sunday to see filmmaker J. Michael Hagopian receive the Man of the Year 2000 award and former committee chairman Mourad Topalian accept the Freedom Award 2000, officials said.

My name is Vache Mangassarian and I am the producer of Armenian National Network, which airs every night at 8 locally on Channel 26. Recently, Eric Hacopian produced a tape that attempted to label me as anti-Semitic and a bigot. I had decided not to respond to Mr. Hacopian's unsubstantiated theories and smear campaign. However, the recent Will Rogers article and organized letter-writing campaign in the local paper have made it necessary for me to clarify my position on this matter.

Claudia Peschiutta MORE ENDORSEMENTS FOR ROGAN The Filipino-American Political Groups Assn. and the Armenian Council of America this week announced their endorsements of Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) in the 27th Congressional District race. The Filipino-American association, which represents 53 organizations throughout Los Angeles County, said its decision came after Rogan and his opponent, state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale), appeared before members at a "Meet the Candidates Night" in April.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The Armenian National Committee on Tuesday gave state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) an endorsement that could help him win much support within one of the area's most influential voter groups. The other two major Armenian political groups working locally have given Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) their endorsements for the 27th Congressional District race, but the ANC is also well-known among thousands of Armenian voters in the area and has more than 500 contributors in Glendale.

After almost a year of reading about the Armenian Genocide in this newspaper, all those letters have sent me back to my college history books to do a little research, especially after reading Razmik Grigorian's comments ("An honest man no threat," March 20) regarding "distortions of historical events and ridiculous claims, revisionist allegations, and apologist approaches ..." What I've uncovered prompts me to raise questions, and to make a few observations.

Ryan Carter Local Armenians will join protests against Armenia's president Thursday with rallies at the offices of the Consulate General of Armenia. In recent weeks, protests have been building inside and outside of Yerevan, the Armenian capital, with a vocal opposition decrying the presidency of Robert Kocharyan, who was reelected last year to a five-year term under a cloud of charges including voter fraud and ballot stuffing. In recent days, thousands of protesters have reportedly taken to the streets, marching on government buildings in Yerevan.
