I want to express my appreciation to the Burbank Leader for its endorsement in the recent primary election and, perhaps more importantly, to your coverage of the candidates and issues. Every Burbank resident who voted in the Feb. 22 primary election was the beneficiary of your coverage. During the campaign, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with residents across the city who shared their ideas and suggestions for dealing with the many issues that confront our city. As the campaign moves ahead, I look forward to continuing that dialogue on my door-to-door walks.

I know — in addition to being a driver, since moving to Glendale, I have increased walking to my appointments and errands. (It really is great not to have to hassle with parking spaces and complex meters!) So I have a couple of suggestions for both pedestrians and drivers, based on personal experiences. Pedestrians: Please cross at crosswalks.

GLENDALE— A 20-year-old Tujunga woman pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that she was texting when she struck and killed an 80-year-old Glendale man in a crosswalk. Friends and family packed the Los Angeles County Superior Courtroom in Glendale as Ani Voskanian was arraigned on one count of vehicular manslaughter.

I would like to correct Robert Morrison's version of the 2nd Amendment, which he seems to have conveniently misquoted to suit his opinion ("Argument against household guns," July 8). The actual version reads: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." He seems to have forgotten an important part, the part that reads "of the people" It's a shame that he tries to stereotype pro-gun Americans with his sarcastic fantasy perception of air-shooting, neighbor-killing maniacs.

The city of Glendale created a new strategy to establish a secured environment for both drivers and pedestrians (“Stings go on, sans bunny,” April 2). According to the article, “Glendale Police Officer Tom Broadway dressed in a pair of shorts and T-shirt, a far cry from the furry Easter costume that he sported a day earlier. On Thursday, he walked back and forth at two crosswalks, one lighted and marked, the other not.” The city’s police chose two intersections in which the number of accidents is high.
