Flags to be lowered for war memorial All U.S. flags on city buildings and property will be flown at half-staff Monday in honor of National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day. The memorial day was established in honor of the armistice agreement signed on July 27, 1953, putting a halt to the three-year war between North and South Korea. About 1.8 million members of the U.S. Armed Forces fought against North Korea. During that time, about 34,000 Americans died in combat, 92,000 were wounded and more than 8,000 were listed as missing in action or taken prisoner, according to the White House.

Happy New Year. Or, as some say, happy New Year's, or even happy new year. Which one is correct? They all are. New Year's is one holiday that's hard to get wrong. But as the months go by, other holidays roll around that aren't so easy to write - holidays that follow rules contradictory to each other and perhaps even to logic itself. So here, to start your New Year right, is the lowdown on how to write a whole year's worth of holidays. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day always start with capital letters and always take an apostrophe.

As we wake up this morning, on Veterans Day, our first thoughts should be obvious ones. American soldiers are fighting in the streets of a city far from their homes, in conditions and under stress the large majority of us will never know. They are fighting, in a profound sense, to ensure that we will never know such scenes. Our first thoughts and our deepest prayers should be with them and with their families. There are, of course, many who do know and who do understand what our soldiers are living through today.

I would like to thank Dave Moreno for his article that appeared on the Community Forum page Dec. 11. As a member of the U.S. Navy during World War II, I, too, am critical of the city policy regarding the display of the American flag. I have complained to the city manager and members of the City Council about the lack of the city to comply with the flag code. There are four recognized days the flag is flown at half-staff.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE - As the nation honors its veterans Thursday, many will commemorate their sacrifices locally. Veterans Day had its beginning as Armistice Day, proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 as a reminder of the tragedies of war. The name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 in order to honor all U.S. veterans. Local observances will be held Thursday at the Glendale American Legion and at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive.

There are 25 million veterans from World War I through the Global War on Terrorism. More than 2 million veterans live in California, the most of any state. Congress has been working nonstop to make sure everyone who sacrificed for our country is treated with the respect and care they deserve. Overall, veterans' funding has nearly doubled since 1995.

It is especially important in these days of war to remember and offer our respect to veterans who served in our nation's battles. Honoring them, particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice, is one constant we can hope to agree on in a country again divided by a war. As Abraham Lincoln said in his address at Gettysburg, we can't say anything or bestow any honor that would match the sacrifice that our nation's service men and women have...

Mark R. Madler The second decade of the century saw many changes in Glendale's newspaper coverage, but two were most important. In May 1910, the Jewel City Press made its appearance, giving competition to the Glendale News. The name would later be changed to the Glendale Press. And in 1913, the News would switch from a weekly to a six-days-a-week daily, taking on the name the Evening News. But the content of the News remained much the same for most of the decade.
