CITY HALL — City officials were looking for inspiration last week when they hit the streets of Berkeley via bike. Six city employees from a range of departments joined Councilwoman Laura Friedman and consultant Colin Bogart, a liaison with the nonprofit Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, for a two-day trip that included a bike tour of Berkeley’s amenities for local cyclists. “I thought it was valuable for people to see firsthand what Berkeley has in place for bicyclists and pedestrians,” said Bogart, who organized the visit as part of his efforts to help Glendale implement a Safe and Healthy Streets plan.

Thanks for the inspiring article about Sonia Yeghkian (“A better life in a new country,” April 28), who is working toward a nursing degree at Glendale Community College, only two years after immigrating to the U.S. I would like to see a follow-up article regarding the severe shortage of nursing program openings in the U.S. I doubt that most of the public is aware that nearly all nursing schools have a lottery system to select students...

Traffic safety in Glendale apparently will get a shot in the arm from one of the state's most renowned safety research centers. UC Berkeley's transportation research center has agreed to visit Glendale again to conduct an educational workshop about traffic safety issues. Details about the free workshop and when it will occur haven't been decided. Officials decided to put a stronger emphasis on safety issues following a recent string of pedestrian-involved collisions, including a fatality . “We are open to exploring different options with the city,” said Jill Cooper, associate director of the UC Berkeley's Safe Transportation Research and Education Center.

Glendale's ongoing issues with pedestrian safety have claimed the lives of two 86-year-old men just within the past four months. The figure is specifically distressing to Daniel Mehrabian because his grandfather was one of those men killed. "I wasn't ready to lose him," he said. Determined to find answers as to why pedestrians, particularly seniors, are being killed by vehicles in Glendale, Mehrabian sat down with community stakeholders Thursday night at the highly-anticipated UC Berkeley pedestrian workshop to discuss the city's enduring traffic safety problem.

A consultant is set to be paid $130,000 to fix Glendale's broken water rates following City Council's approval this week. That's on top of about $50,000 the city already paid Berkeley-based Bartle Wells for an initial analysis of the miscalculated rates. The new contract with Bartle Wells was necessary because the consultant has to completely scrap the former water rates, which had numerous errors , and conduct a new cost-of-service analysis, said Steve Zurn, director of Glendale Water & Power, during a council meeting Tuesday.

GLENDALE — Residents and community leaders walked the streets Saturday and examined local city intersections to determine whether they are safe for pedestrians. The stroll was a walkability assessment as part of the Community Pedestrian Safety Training seminar that the UC Berkeley Traffic Safety Center and California Walks put on for the city. Saturday’s seminar was the first of 12 that the center will conduct this year, said Jill Cooper, the center’s assistant director.

These are big days that lie ahead of Jillian Davis. On Aug. 25, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy graduate has a birthday, her 21st, in fact. On that same day, the UC Berkeley women's volleyball team begins its 2006 year. For Davis and company, it's predicted to be the genesis of the program's greatest season. Big days, indeed. Davis, along with Samantha Carter, is co-captaining the squad, hopefully, into uncharted waters. For three successive seasons, these Golden Bears have made the NCAA playoffs and an unprecedented fourth consecutive trip will only be the starting point in reaching the team's redefined goals.
