So are the greedy investors who don't care how our city looks. Which one will be responsible and liable for any or all the damages a small earthquake will do as it has done in El Salvador?

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Seven years after the Northridge earthquake rocked the city, the memory of the event is stronger in some areas than others: While city staff and emergency workers say they're prepared for another shaker, many residents aren't. Today marks the seventh anniversary of the 6.7 magnitude quake. It comes only four days after a pair of small earthquakes rumbled through the area this weekend and a large temblor killed more than 60 people in El Salvador.

If you were to select a musical theme for this year's high school graduation in Glendale, what would you choose? What music should have marked the steps for our graduating seniors as they take their special walk up the stage on the football field? The music should have a leitmotif of freedom and integration with which our graduates identify. It should highlight the polyglot of sounds heard around campus like a score of languages in irreverent harmony. It should have been selected to underscore the celebration of making that milestone together.
