Tim Willert DOWNTOWN -- Computers may be all the rage throughout the city's public library system, but reading a good book is just as popular as ever. "It's clear that people still love to read," said Laurel Patric, the city's director of libraries. "One of our major roles is to encourage reading." Each of the city's six library branches maintain a variety of books, periodicals and videos, as well as online resources. The value of the Internet as a reading, writing and research tool, though, cannot be overlooked, officials said.

DAN KIMBER A number of years ago, when I first came to teach at Hoover High School, we had a full-fledged industrial arts program that included a wood shop, metal shop, print shop and auto shop. Today, only the auto shop remains, and its days might be numbered. The decision to excise these programs is reflective of a general trend in our society that places increasing importance on computer literacy. The industrial arts program at our school (and countless others across the country)

As Glendale Unified prepares to use computers to test students on the new Common Core State Standards this coming spring , school officials are planning to sample three different computers for select students and teachers to use this month in order to gain feedback on which device could emerge as the best testing tool. With the approval of Assembly Bill 484 by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this month, California schools have been authorized to transition from the current state standardized testing system, known as STAR, to new computerized exams that better reflect the new standards.

In “Glendale teachers prepare for Common Core standards,” Sept. 21, it was mentioned that the new Common Core standards are slowly and efficiently being implemented in Glendale schools and that teachers are teaching the new material to other teachers. It was also mentioned that students are being transitioned into the new standards through tests proctored through computers. I believe that the methods used for transitioning both teachers and students into Common Core from the old standards are effective, however I cannot fully agree on the testing method used on children.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. And I am already annoyed. Though delicious, it will be the same meal, cooked the same way and eaten with the same people. The same tired stories will be shared, the same confounding statements will tick me off, and we'll end the night painfully full, leftovers in hand, dreading the hairpin turn into the insanity of Christmas shopping and overspending. Yeah. I'm a little grumpy. I think I've got bad metadata. Though I have a passing knowledge of things technical, just enough to get me into trouble before running to the computer repair shop, I work with geniuses.

The Glendale and Pasadena central libraries on Thursday were not places to seek peace and quiet as city officials unveiled a new digital lending technology - the 3M Cloud. In Glendale, an ice cream and cookie truck attracted dozens of people in the late afternoon as librarians sought to give as many library cards to people as they could. Using the “cloud,” patrons can download ebooks to their computers, iPads, iPhones, Androids and ereaders with their library card's PIN, checking out up to five books at a time for up to two weeks with the ability to read them without the Internet.

Federal prosecutors have seized several additional computers as part of their investigation into allegations that campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee misused the political funds of clients, according to documents released Monday. The seizures were cited as a reason for seeking another month's delay in a preliminary hearing in the case. A hearing that had been scheduled for Tuesday in federal court has now been set for March 16.

I am so sorry to hear that “City Views” is no longer published. I feel awful for people who don't have Internet, especially retired seniors. Even me, I don't and can't read well on the screen of computer. I understand there is budget problem. But I do believe that we should still issue this flier, for this might be the only one to reach those who don't have Internet or computer. These people certainly do have the right to know what is going on in our society. How can they participate without knowing the events or issues?

As a tight knit family in a tight-fit house - four people, three ladies, two bedrooms, one bath, no space - we share everything. Besides my T-shirts, the most intimate thing we share is germs. So when Thing 1 and Thing 2 came home with a bug last week, I knew my time was short. It hit full force Monday at work. Otherwise courteous and friendly co-workers became plague-fearing villagers, fleeing the vicinity of my cubicle, screaming through hands they prayed stopped bacteria. I know when I'm not wanted.
