I remember there was a time when my grandparents came to California looking for a better life. They had no money, a few personal possessions and high hopes, which were beleaguered by their difficult and troubled past. When they came here, they were met with discrimination, bigotry and, at times, open aggression. They had a difficult time finding jobs, working long days doing things unrelated to their skills or education. They worked hard to make sure their children had a better life and didn't have to grow up in a society that discriminated against people because of their place of origin and their pride in their culture.

Craig Missakian Upon reading Ms. Michael's letter concerning Proposition 22, I gave it to friends to read. Some had supported the measure and some had opposed it. All of them advised me simply to ignore her comments. I thought differently. In the wake of the March 7 election, if there was any division created in our community by Proposition 22 now is the time to heal that wound. Unfortunately, I believe Ms. Michael's approach in continuing to divide this community by attacking supporters of the measure as hateful and bigoted only makes matters worse.

Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- Federal prosecutors have rejected a Glendale man's claims that the U.S. Attorney's Organized Crime Strike Force has singled out Armenians in Glendale for prosecution. In a motion filed last week, federal prosecutors argued against defense attorney Mark Geragos' legal motion that a judge should throw out a Glendale man's extortion case because of unfair prosecution. Geragos is representing Henzel Harutian, who is accused of threatening a man for failing to make payments for a Glendale sewing factory he bought from Harutian.

Buck Wargo Hank the red standard dachshund tries to negotiate a settlement of a lawsuit with Waldo the basset hound during Tuesday's meeting of the Glendale City Council. Waldo appears like he would rather take his chances in court. Hank's owner, Lynda Burns, filed a gag lawsuit against the city, claiming all other breeds of dogs are being discriminated against because Glendale selected a basset hound theme for its float in the 2000 Tournament of Roses Parade.
