We were actors.” Alexis’ mother, Gloria, adds that her daughter’s school had just won first place in a dancing competition.

GLENDALE — Teachers have had their school mailboxes full lately. In them are the ballots and envelopes required for the vote Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to approve or reject the tentative agreement with the Glendale Unified School District and the Glendale Teachers Assn. And then there are the fliers at some campuses, made by a group of Crescenta Valley High School teachers, that encourage a "no" vote. At stake is a three-year labor agreement that would take a bite out of the district's budget deficit, while forcing teachers to take 15 furlough days and make payments toward health-care plans.

NORTH GLENDALE — More than 50 Glendale Unified teachers and community members took part in a candlelight vigil outside school board President Greg Krikorian's home Wednesday evening to protest dozens of possible layoffs. The demonstration was the latest salvo in a union campaign to pressure school board members to withdraw all 77 teacher pink slips before the final layoff process begins this summer. It also brought the politics of the district's cost-cutting efforts to Krikorian's doorstep, a move that caused some dissension within the ranks of the Glendale Teachers Assn.

Claudia Peschiutta DOWNTOWN - Cheers, honks and stares greeted striking janitors as they made their way up and down Brand Boulevard in their second full-scale Glendale protest. Glendale Police officers made their way along the banks of a river of redshirted marchers. The strikers were orderly and did not march into the streets as did protesters during the April 5 demonstration. The protest was one of many held by janitors throughout Los Angeles County on Day 10 of the "rolling" strike of Service Employees International Local 1877.

He initially made her feel special, but soon he became violent.

The killing of more than a million Armenians by Ottoman Turks in 1915 was an act of genocide. The Holocaust was a fact. Yet Americans are free to deny the reality of either - or make outlandish assertions of all kinds - without facing punishment by the state. Residents of France will be denied that privilege if its parliament adopts a wrong-headed bill to criminalize denial of the Armenian genocide. On Thursday the lower house of France's parliament will debate a bill that would punish those who deny the genocide with a year in prison and a $58,000 fine.

Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives for this country. But in driving four miles through Glendale there were only three Stars and Stripes flying from the houses — yes, just three! This is a poor display on such a day. So where were the flags? Maybe you could remind people that June 14 is Flag Day, and that July 4 is Independence Day, so they have time to go to the store and buy a 3-by-5-foot flag to be flown on these two days. All the action on such a day should not be limited to the TV. FRANK AND OLIVE BUNKELL Glendale Teachers union made poor choice Much has been spoken lately about the candlelight vigil staged by the Glendale Teachers Assn.

Mona Marcos endured 20 years of verbal abuse from her husband until she decided enough was enough and left him. She tried to report the verbal abuse to police, but back then, a domestic abuse report was considered a dispute, she said. “The minute the officer left the door I knew I was in trouble,” she said. When she finally left her abusive husband, she opted not to date anyone for five years, she said. Marcos’ current husband had to ask for her hand in marriage three times until she finally said yes. She now hosts support groups to help other victims of domestic violence.
