Hamlet Nalbandyan TEMPLE CITY -- The tennis courts at Temple City High are old and worn out, but you won't catch Ram Coach Allen Langdale complaining about them. Because those "third-world courts," as he described them, got Temple City a much-needed, 12-6, victory against La Canada on Tuesday in a Rio Hondo League match. What's so strange about Tuesday's outcome is the fact that the Spartans (5-6, 3-1 in league) beat the Rams, 10-8, on Thursday.

Who can say for sure who will be Glendale’s next mayor? Whoever he (or she, viz., Laura Friedman) may be, it’s too bad that current Mayor John Drayman, an avowed tennis aficionado himself, didn’t enhance his leadership legacy by at least casting one vote — his own — to save the Central Park tennis courts when he last had the chance (“Rec. center’s approval ends years of delays,” April 1). None of the preelection council members displayed the backbone to stand up to Los Angeles County’s veritable blackmail — i.e., its threat to cancel a $700,000 competitive grant if the city didn’t hup to it and award a tennis courts-demolishing Adult Recreation Center contract by the end of the year.

The city deserves credit for serving up the idea of tennis courts at Glendale High School to replace those that are being demolished at Central Park. But the city served up a fault on this idea. The idea of city courts at a school to take the place of courts at a park misses an essential point: People use public tennis courts all day — not just after 6 p.m., which is when the courts built on the campus would likely be used, according to city staffers. We're all for improved sports facilities at local campuses and joint-use projects, in general.

Renovating courts is a very good idea I think that's great that they're going to renovate those six courts ("City talks tennis at school site," Wednesday) because I used to play there back in 1977 when I was senior at Glendale High School. We are still playing at Central Park (Pilipino tennis club) waiting for the city to tell us where to move. JOE CALDITO Glendale Extra courts should go to Freemont Ideally, the city of Glendale needs to build four new courts to replace the four being taken out of Central Park ("City talks tennis at school site," Wednesday)

Mr. Gregg would like me to believe that the courts have already decided in his favor ("Laws apply to Oakmont View V," Nov. 19). Mr. Gregg would like me to be afraid of and intimidated by his lawyers and their lawsuits. Mr. Gregg would like me to believe that our quality of life will be vastly improved with the addition of 572 homes. Mr. Gregg would like met to believe that I am too ignorant to know the difference between reality and his fabrications. First, the courts have not decided the merits of your complaint; there is yet to be a final determination.

Perhaps we should begin to pay more attention to our Constitution and to where our leaders, on both sides of the aisle, are taking us. We are misinterpreting or just ignoring our Constitution, especially the 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments, either intentionally or otherwise. While terrorism is a reality in this world of ours, it is my opinion that violating or eliminating our rights in the name of security is without merit and is dangerous. Once the rights that honor us with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are tinkered with or thrown asunder, they are difficult, if not impossible, to reinstate.

It didn't take long for Emmett Duvall to draw attention. And it had nothing to do with him towering at 6 feet 6 inches, tied for second tallest player on the burgeoning Glendale Community College men's basketball team. Duvall brought his lunch-pail approach inside the Glendale college gymnasium during a recent two-hour practice session. He found himself near the basket in prime position to grab a few rebounds and offer encouragement to his teammates after running some plays. “We mean business,” said Duvall, a sophomore wing.

For the first time in four years, the overall crime rate increased slightly in Glendale last year, with a spike in the number of property offenses. While violent crimes - which include homicides, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults - remained low last year, property crimes jumped and pushed up the overall crime rate by 3%, from 3,283 incidents in 2012 to 3,383 last year. Still, police expected violent crimes to stay down, which is in line with a nationwide reduction, Glendale Police Chief Robert Castro said Wednesday at a Community Police Partnership Advisory Committee meeting.

A six-month saga involving Glendale High alumnus Jesse Meaux will extend into a new year as another court date was set for the one-time pitching prospect. Meaux is expected back in Buncombe County District Court in North Carolina on Jan. 23, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. EDT for more pretrial activity, as proceedings that took place Nov. 22 were continued again. The 24-year-old Meaux, along with Asheville Tourists baseball teammate Michael Mason, was charged with two counts each of felony first degree rape and felony first degree sexual offense on Aug. 2, with each offense carrying a minimum of 12 years per charge.

Glendale's winter shelter has been running smoothly since Ascencia opened its doors to the homeless earlier this month in the San Fernando Road corridor, officials said. Led by the city's largest homeless service provider, the shelter opened on Dec. 1 on Fernando Court, one of the few times the facility has not operated out of the Glendale National Guard Armory. When the shelter was located at the armory on Colorado Boulevard - its usual location for most of the last 16 years - retailers and patrons of the Adult Recreation Center and Glendale Central Library complained about its patrons.

The women were chosen from a group of 30 finalists who were culled from nearly 1,000 applicants for the coveted spots. A selection committee began wading through the applications and interviews more than a month ago, Tournament of Roses President Scott Jenkins said.

LA CRESCENTA - It was only fitting the Pacific League girls' volleyball match between Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs was decided on an ace. Ironically, the team that was most formidable in its serving didn't wind up with the decider. After being peppered by 20 Falcons aces, the Indians had the most memorable one from Darby Adams - her fourth of the match - which ended the contest in Burroughs' favor on Crescenta Valley's home court Tuesday, 25-21, 23-25, 25-18, 20-25, 15-13.

A federal judge this week green-lighted an anti-smoking advocate's latest 1st Amendment complaint against Councilman Ara Najarian, whom the advocate claims got him fired from Glendale Adventist Medical Center because he spoke out against Najarian's proposal to loosen smoking rules at restaurants . Although the city, representing Najarian, had asked U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee to throw out the complaint, in an order published Tuesday she...

I recently learned that Los Angeles Superior Court does not offer small claims adjudication services at the Glendale courthouse any longer. The civil court clerk informed me that the service was terminated as of last May. Small claims court at Glendale was always very busy. There was a long wait for new filings or continuances. Litigants now will have to travel to Alhambra to file and have their matter heard. This seems absurd. If the court system decided to do this to save money, a better option would have been to reduce the number of civil courts at Glendale.
