I came to the Glendale News-Press kicking and screaming in the late 1980s. I had been an editor at the Burbank Leader and was plucked from my job there and told I would be the city editor of the News-Press. I was terrified. I had never worked on a daily in my somewhat illustrious career. It seemed to me that the natural progression would have been to be a reporter on a daily and then eventually move up to editor. But that was not the case. But I was a lucky man. I had a great reporting team, good supporting editors and some fantastic mentors.

Jenna Bordelon LA CRESCENTA -- Pastor Thomas E. Witherspoon is not ready to retire just yet. He took over the leadership of Unity Church of the Valley last month after a long career in Florida and Lake Tahoe and is quite happy in his new home. "Retirement is not part of my language," he said. "I was sort of semi-retired in Tahoe and I didn't like it very much." His first order of business will be to attract new members to a congregation of about 50 people.

I’ve just about caught up on my sleep from last weekend. No, I didn’t go to prom with Crescenta Valley High School seniors and their dates. I was waiting for them after prom over at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA at Prom Plus. This is the eighth year that I’ve been involved with Prom Plus. Prom Plus was started after a Crescenta Valley High School senior was murdered as she slept at an unsupervised, post-prom hotel party in 1991. Her death drew the community together to create a fun, supervised after prom event for CV seniors and their guests.

Well, happily graduation and prom are behind us and with them are all the parties and other celebrations that make the season so overly busy. Having graduated one senior from CVHS (go Falcons!) and another being promoted from Rosemont (go Spartans!) this year, we've been balancing parties and other festivities. As is not uncommon during this time of the year, rumors start circulating about parents who think that they are being cool and responsible by supplying their underage kids with alcohol.

This is going to be a busy weekend for the Valley. Memorial Day services abound and the La Cañada Chamber of Commerce's Fiesta Days offers plenty to do, including music, barbecues and fireworks. Also happening this weekend is the prom for Crescenta Valley High School seniors. CV will be holding their event on Saturday evening, May 26 at the Globe Theatre at nearby Universal Studios. Without a doubt, prom is a highlight for many of the students. Unfortunately, this is also a perilous time as well.

Robin Goldsworthy In the past several editions, the Crescenta Valley Sun has published the answers to six questions that were posed to all eight Glendale City Council candidates. This election has been quite an education for me. Generally, I am not a person overly interested in politics; however, being in the seat of city editor, it was my job to choose the questions that I thought best reflected the interests of the Crescenta Valley, contact the candidates, and print their responses.

Now that the holidays are behind us (excuse me as I wipe my brow in relief), I have to make mention of something that I found really irritating. Seeing how many people prefer to use the shops in the foothill area, and imagining how much revenue is earned by those shops over the holidays by our residents, I find it very distasteful that these same shops won't support local organizations by putting up posters, fliers or notices of local events. For example, when the high school puts on a production, it's surprising how many stores and shops won't allow the kids to put up a little 8 ½ by 11 flier advertising the production.
