One more praise to add to the well-deserved tribute to Carlos Moorhead. As congressman, he voted for the Americans with Disabilities Act, spurring ramps to bypass impossible steps, curb cuts, wheelchair-accessible restrooms and more. Families with disabled loved ones are eternally grateful. The law improved the quality of life for the whole family. Phyllis Campbell Glendale

Former Congressman Carlos Moorhead passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. He was 89 years old. An attorney with a heart for helping with legal aid work, Moorhead first ventured into politics in the mid 1960s and was elected to the California Assembly. He successfully ran for the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Congressional seat which he would hold for 24 years where he served as minority chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee and the Judiciary Committee. Moorhead loved serving his constituents, returning to the district most weekends to meet with residents.

The Honorable Carlos Moorhead was a gentleman with dedication and integrity who was always ready and willing to listen and help in any way he could (“Carlos Moorhead dead at 89,” Nov. 30). As a former student government advisor at Herbert Hoover High School, I had the honor and pleasure to invite Moorhead several times to visit and have a meaningful conversation with student leaders about government, the U.S. Constitution, and the process of governance in this land of the free and home of the brave.

Ryan Carter George Haney remembered a time in Glendale when you could catch a ride to Los Angeles on an electric car for 10 cents or buy a couple of heads of lettuce for five cents. Those times might not exist anymore, but Haney hopes that people will always celebrate the past of their city. "I hope we can perpetuate this so we don't lose it," he said of the 96-year-old Glendale Old Timers Picnic held Monday on the historic grounds of Casa Adobe de San Rafael Park.

Thoughts while enjoying the autumn air as I stroll down Brand Boulevard: I wonder why the Glendale Market Broiler restaurant closed down. Its menus were freshly printed and sanitized daily. The waiters and waitresses were impeccably trained in courtesy. The food was always palatable. I wonder whether Glendale's Rob Tyler, a super collector of license plates dating back to the turn of the century, will contact former Glendale congressman Carlos Moorhead, to see what he does with his old government- logo plates.

I want to commend Will Rogers on his column of Nov. 10 ("Rogan has only himself to blame"). I am one of the conservative "renegade" Republicans that did not vote for James Rogan. I voted for him when he ran for the Assembly, and again when he ran for the House of Representatives. So why didn't I vote for him this time around? Will Rogers stated my thoughts very clearly in his column when he said that Rogan didn't lose because of the impeachment issue.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- A political veteran will be discussing the upcoming election on the "Larry Zarian Forum" on Thursday. Carlos Moorhead, who served as Glendale's congressman for 24 years, will be talking about politics with talk show host Larry Zarian from 7 to 8 p.m. on Charter Cable Channel 26. "It's important for the public to hear someone who has served them," Zarian said. Moorhead, a Republican, held the 27th Congressional District seat for 24 years.
