In response to your hysterical and shrill editorial that attacked me for having the county's Environmental Toxicological Laboratory do a comparative analysis of Glendale's tap water with bottled water, you have attacked the messenger and not the problem. As you know, the law requires municipalities to report to their customers the quality of their water once a year. To not question or compare the analysis would be irresponsible. Having the Los Angeles County's Environmental Toxicological Laboratory, which is responsible for protecting the public through its testing of food, prepare the comparison was in the public interest.

Ben Godar With the nation's terror-alert system at "code orange," it's second-highest risk level, some in Glendale are taking precautions while it's business as usual for many others. The heightened alert was announced a week ago, with government officials saying they had specific intelligence regarding an attack during or around the Muslim pilgrimage known as hajj, news reports said. Police and fire officials are doing little different right now, but said their increased disaster training will improve their response in the event of an attack.

Gas line broken in neighborhood NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Nearby residents were ordered to stay indoors for a few hours Friday morning after a home developer accidentally broke a 2-inch gas line, causing a leak that took about two hours to repair, authorities said.
