I have to say that I am truly sad to read the Jan. 29 commentary by Barry McComb titled “It's important to save the Alex” - not only for myself, but for all the future generations. How can this happen? How can we allow this? My grandmother moved to Glendale in the late '40s to raise her four daughters. Almost 50 years ago one of her daughters had a child, Cynthia, at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. This child, me, grew up with Grandma Garnet enjoying the arts at the Alex Theatre.

GLENDALE ? The arts are almost everywhere in Jennifer Hopkins' teaching. She uses drama, dance and music to help her fifth-grade students at R.D. White Elementary School learn academics in a program that is so effective she was nominated for a Los Angeles Music Center Bravo Award. "I can't imagine not doing it that way because I would be completely bored teaching it right out of the book," said Hopkins, who has taught at R.D. White for six years. "It makes teaching fun, not to mention the benefits the students get from the arts."

“This is the best restaurant in town!” Hoover High School student Josh Deaktor said, placing sausage links on a hungry attendee’s plate at the Tri-School Pancake Breakfast in front of Keppel Elementary on Saturday morning. Parents, friends and teachers from Hoover, Toll Middle and Keppel Elementary schools gathered to enjoy pancakes and listen to the sounds of the schools’ choir arrangements. “I decided to help out at the event because I wanted to volunteer in the community,” said Deaktor, who plays the baritone saxophone in the high school’s jazz band.

I am responding to an article titled "School board to authorize layoff notices" in the Feb. 17 News-Press. I was quoted as saying: "Art and music [education] I would consider an extra, maybe. " This statement was most certainly taken out of context. The arts are not a frill. They are an essential part of the curriculum in our schools. In fact, I would argue that they are just as important as science and math. I am an arts advocate. I have even turned my passion into a vocation and am now serving as the executive director of the Glendale Symphony Orchestra Assn.

The next step will be another round of forms, asking artists and groups about their needs. Information gathered will be placed in the commission's database and published in a directory to be made available to those interested in the arts.

For Michael Parker, there would be no better place to carve a 137-foot obelisk into asphalt than a plot of land bounded by the Glendale Narrows of the Los Angeles River, boxy industrial buildings, power lines and the Glendale (2) Freeway. Standing on the massive earthwork - fenced-in on all sides by a 2-foot-deep ditch and piles of infill dirt - visitors are surrounded by a mixture of urban and environmental landscapes, the Los Angeles artist said standing atop his creation this week.

Following 15 minutes of a hard-fought Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight bout, Glendale Fighting Club's Jessamyn “The Gun” Duke thought she would have her hand raised. Instead, for the first time, Duke was dealt a professional loss, as she was on the wrong end of a unanimous decision against Bethe Correia on Saturday night at UFC 172 in Baltimore. “I thought I had it,” Duke told the UFC after the fight. “I knew it was going to be close, but I really thought the fight was mine.” Correia won the 135-pound bout via scores of 30-27 twice and 29-28.

With a victory in her Ultimate Fighting Championship debut in the rear view and her feet firmly and comfortably situated in Southern California as part of arguably the most popular and regarded stable of female mixed martial arts fighters, Jessamyn "The Gun" Duke has reason to be excited about her future. Her immediate future is UFC 172 on Saturday in Baltimore and an undefeated three-round bantamweight showdown with Bethe Correia. The bout will air on Fox Sports 1 as part of the preliminary card beginning at 5 p.m. PST.

LOS ANGELES - When “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey began her mixed martial arts career, it came to be in part due to the inspiration of Gina “Conviction” Carano. “Thank God for Gina Carano,” Rousey told the Glendale News-Press in August of 2011. “I have so much respect for her. I'm grateful for what she's done.” Rousey, the current and first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion, has long said that it would be an honor to fight Carano, though the latter has been absent from competition since the summer of 2009.

This past week my wife and I spent a pleasant afternoon at the Autry National Center. A feature exhibit was the 103rd Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition of the California Art Club. It was a superb showing of the work of California artists, both painters and sculptors. I write because there has been very little publicity regarding the show which opened on March 30 and runs until April 20. To all art lovers among the readership of the News-Press, I say, “Go and enjoy.” Stanley L. Block, M.D. Glendale
