Tae Yoo, 22, emigrated from South Korea to America with his father, mother and sister more than a dozen years ago. The former La Crescenta resident dreams of being successful in making films, writing a book, and even running for a congressional or city council position, he said. “This may sound cheesy, but the ultimate goal is to achieve the American dream, since I am a foreigner,” said Yoo, who lives in Sunland. At Cal State Northridge, Yoo is majoring in screenwriting and history, with a minor in religious studies.

The La Crescenta Woman’s Club has been cultivating community for nearly a century. Founded in 1911, the club is gearing up to celebrate its 100th birthday next year. The theme of the party is “A century of friendship and service,” said next year’s co-presidents, Carol Huntwork and Genny Bundick. Over the years the club has fostered camaraderie among its members, who said they consider themselves family. Second Vice President of Membership Dea McCrory still has friends from when she joined the club in 1957.

Crescenta Valley High School is a natural Ground Zero for parents, teachers, coaches and other adult trustees to at once gauge the drug-use problem in the area and address it. And so a voluntary drug testing program — in which students agree to take random drug tests, with results sent directly to parents — is the sort of innovative response, and activist role, that government rarely gets right. In this regard, Glendale Unified should be commended. Now, the ball is squarely in the court of parents.

I would like to thank retired Glendale Police Lt. Don Meredith for expressing the opinions that I totally agree with (“Drayman way off on bunny outburst,” April 2). As a pedestrian in south Glendale, I appreciate any effort to increase the safety in the area. I would also like to comment on the use of the bunny costume. In a sting using a regular decoy, the 20 or so people cited are educated. By using the bunny-costumed decoy you get a front-page story in the newspaper informing many more people.

CRESCENTA VALLEY— About 16% of Crescenta Valley High School students have enrolled in a voluntary drug testing program, which could expand into other Glendale Unified School District campuses, officials said. The program was announced in December as part of a communitywide push to keep drugs out of the La Crescenta school, and to facilitate conversations between families and their children. Of the 2,946 notices sent out, 1,444 were returned. Of those, 473 students chose to sign up for the testing program.

CITY HALL — All drug-related offenses in January investigated by Glendale police in the Crescenta Valley were attributed to heroin, an increasingly popular opiate among youth in the region, Police Chief Ron De Pompa said Tuesday. Heroin use has been escalating in the Crescenta Valley in the past five years as more high school students and young adults have become hooked, he said during a presentation on drug use in north Glendale to the City Council. “For years and years, La Crescenta seemed to be untouched by a lot of the big-city ailments that we started experiencing in the rest of the community, and we are starting to see a change in that now,” he said.
