District officials cited more pressing requests and a short staff as reasons for the delay. “I apologize, bottom line,” Supt.

There’s a simple reason the California Public Records Act passed in 1968: “The people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business.” There were limits put in place, much of it having to do with protecting public safety, others’ privacy and length of time to respond to such requests — 10 business days, with the ability to take 14 more if needed. Beyond the time extension, those limits took little else into consideration, no matter the volume of records or information requested.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE -- One famous tenor is not enough for the Glendale Symphony Orchestra. More than a month after performing with Luciano Pavarotti at the Great Western Forum, the symphony will be accompanying Pavarotti, Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo -- better known as "The Three Tenors" -- for an April 22 performance in Las Vegas. The group will play at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. "This is an indication of the quality of the Glendale Symphony when we are picked for such a plum assignment," orchestra association President Brian Ellis said.

On a November night in 1994, the Alex Film Society was about to screen “Gone With the Wind” when the sound system failed. The screen had only been propped up two days before, and there had been no time to test the sound before the society's first event. “I had to go out and say, 'We have a problem,'” recalled society founder Brian Ellis, and everyone went home early. Theater management had already predicted that the new group wouldn't attract much of a crowd, so Ellis and society member Randy Carter personally rounded up soda and candy from a local store.

I am writing to urge Glendale voters on April 2 to vote “No” on Measure A. Glendale has always had an elected treasurer, and twice in the past voters turned down council-driven attempts to gain exclusive control of the city's chief investment officer. Each time the council attempted to sway voters, their arguments have been the same as today: “There is too much at stake to let the voters decide,” or “It shouldn't be a beauty contest.” What the supporters of this measure really mean is that we the voters are too stupid, lazy or inattentive to elect someone qualified for the position.
