As a citizen of Glendale, I am just wondering if loitering, smoking and littering laws are in fact still laws within the city. On any given day or night (mostly night), you can find groups of teens and young adults hanging around in parking lots all across the city. They play their music, smoke cigarettes and throw all their trash right where they stand. They try to intimidate others and make the parking lots very uncomfortable places to be. The parking lots next to Carl's Jr. on Glenoaks, the 7-Eleven on the corner of Glenoaks and Highland and the Ralphs parking lot on Glendale Avenue near Glendale Community College are just a few of the hot spots.

SOUTH GLENDALE ? For Silva Kushnatsian, the Cops For Kids fundraiser Thursday evening was the perfect combination of one of her favorite games, bingo, and supporting a good cause. A self-described bingo junkie, Kushnatsian had 15 checkered bingo cards laid out in front of her to prove it. "It's pure chance," she said. "The only strategy is to buy more because the more you have, the better chance you have of winning." But the real winners of the bingo fundraiser were not at the Elk's Lodge near downtown last night.

Ten families' Fourth of July celebrations will be a little sweeter this year, thanks to Cops for Kids and the Glendale Police Department.

Last week, your paper printed a letter from Mr. Tanabe who was "bashing" local law enforcement, particularly Det. Murphy, for a Tip of the Week titled "Family Safety is Paramount." Det. Murphy's tip was, if you have a firearm in your home, keep it locked up and out of reach of children and keep ammunition separate. Mr. Tanabe felt this tip was "worthless, arrogant and idiotic." I wonder what the mother/father of a child killed by an unlocked loaded firearm would have to say to that?

“The Glendale Commission on the Status of Women is the most active commission in the city.” That's according to Glendale Mayor Frank Quintero. Led by Commission Chairman Paula Devine, the 8th Annual Jewels of Glendale Awards Luncheon on Thursday (May 10) was the best ever. And that's according to yours truly. The Oakmont Country Club was a jewel of a setting. Some 275 supporters were there to honor five Women of Courage: Lori Hartwell, Christine Hovnanian, Betty Porto and her sister Margarita Navarro, and Suzonne Slaughter.

Just a few weeks ago, new Glendale Police Chief Robert Castro was wearing a different badge and uniform. But he has since shed his police chief garb and duties at the Glendora Police Department, and is now officially Glendale's police chief. “The city of Glendale deserves the best and I will promise every day to give you that,” Castro said Thursday at the Police Department headquarters. “I can tell you each and every day I will work hard to earn the right to wear this badge for you.” In a packed room that was standing room only, Castro was sworn in as the city's police chief as friends, family, fellow police officers and city officials looked on. His wife of 23 years, Cynthia, pinned his official police badge on his uniform Castro, 48, started as the Police Department's top cop on Monday, replacing retired Police Chief Ron De Pompa.

The application period in the search for the next Glendale Police chief ended this week, with 43 candidates throwing their hats into the ring, officials said. They will be vying to replace current Police Chief Ron De Pompa, who retired in February but who has continued to work on an hourly basis to oversee organizational changes. Human Resources Director Matt Doyle declined to go in to details about the candidates, including what cities they hailed from. City officials were working with an executive search firm to recruit and test candidates for the position, which will pay between roughly $172,000 and $215,000 annually.  Doyle has said the search firm planned to look outside Southern California for candidates.

If I were to write that coffee smells good, I wouldn't hear a word about it. If I wrote that I am happy, Emily seems nice, pizza sounds delicious, liver tastes bad or all men are created equal, none of those statements would incite the grammar cops. But there's one sentence that, though identical in structure to all these, is guaranteed to get me rapped on the knuckles. It's “I feel bad.” If I make that statement or any variation on it, someone is certain to scold me for my “error,” as one Chuck in Albany did recently.

There are a lot of people out there who will think less of you if you use “impact” as a verb: A longer storm season will negatively impact tourism. Failure to study will negatively impact your grades. Technology will impact higher education. Those are wrong, wrong and wrong, according to certain people. Because they only recognize impact as a noun, some people would require you to say instead that a longer storm season will have a negative impact on tourism, failure to study will have a negative impact on your grades, technology will have an impact on higher education.
