A memorial in Glendale to sex slaves who served the Japanese army during World War II has aggravated an overseas opposition group that has now turned its attention to a similar proposal in Buena Park. Members of the opposition group - which contends the so-called "comfort women" from Korea, China, Indonesia and other occupied countries during the war willingly worked as prostitutes - use form emails to pummel their targets. It's a strategy that was deployed against Glendale just as it was preparing to receive its comfort-women memorial, an 1,100-pound statue of a woman in Korean dress sitting next to an empty chair.

Gary Moskowitz Believe it or not: Maria Mangasarian credits two fertility statues she touched in a museum with the birth of her son Christian. After trying for six years to become pregnant again, the mother of three heard Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in Buena Park was displaying a pair of statues reputedly responsible for more than 900 births. She went to the museum to touch the heavy ebony fertility symbols, and three months and many prayers later, she discovered she was pregnant.

The Estancia High football team saw its struggles with the running game go from bad to worse Friday night as host Buena Park held the Eagles to minus-46 yards rushing in a 17-8 Coyotes victory. The Eagles did manage 82 passing yards, but managed its only touchdown when Matt Redding stripped the ball from a Buena Park running back and returned the fumble 20 yards for with 7:19 left in the game. "We didn't come to play football tonight," said Estancia Coach Brian Barnes, whose team fell to 0-3 and now has minus-24 yards rushing this season.

Coach Brian Barnes said his Estancia High football players are tired of waiting for their first victory of the season. Apparently, Buena Park, which plays host to the nonleague clash with the Eagles Friday at 7, reached that point last week. The Coyotes ended their 15-game losing streak with a 7-6 double-overtime triumph over Century in their opener Friday night. Though the Estancia losing streak spans only the first two games of this season, Barnes believes it needs to be brought to a halt.

The Estancia High football team is averaging roughly the width of the football each time it runs this season. Indeed, 47 rushing yards on 113 carries, five inches per attempt, is hardly a foundation on which to construct a winning season. But the Eagles are coming off consecutive games with positive rushing yards and first-year Coach Brian Barnes said progress is better than the alternative when it comes to forging some semblance of a running game.

A 1,110-pound bronze statue - and the controversy surrounding it - is Glendale's newsmaker of the year. The “comfort women” statue in Central Park honors an estimated 80,000 to 200,000 women who suffered during a government-sanctioned prostitution system set up to serve Japanese soldiers during World War II. A heated debate began even before it was installed in July and it continues to drive news headlines in Japan and Glendale. The statue, the first on the West Coast, continues to drive discontent in Japan as some conservatives there believe the women from Korea, China, Philippines and other countries acted willingly as prostitutes, rather than being coerced into prostitution, as former comfort women claim.
