I've read the revised EIR on Oakmont V and must add my voice to those in opposition to this massive development. It is very clearly stated in that document: There is nothing that can mitigate the significant and unavoidable damage to the environment should this project be allowed. The only reasonable alternative is No. 7 -- no project, no development. The slick insert Gregg's Artistic Homes sent out last week with the Glendale News-Press only serves to illustrate their disregard for the environment.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE - The Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club has recognized state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) as a protector of the environment. The chapter, which serves Los Angeles and Orange counties, presented Schiff with the 1999 Public Policy Award earlier this month. Chapter Director Linda Hoyer said the award goes to an elected public official who has contributed to the advancement of environmental causes. She cited Schiff's opposition to Oakmont View V and his work in several areas, including air pollution and coastal concerns, among the reasons for why Schiff was chosen for the recognition by the chapter's awards committee.

Ryan Carter Larry Thomlinson and Edward Murphy were getting tired of what they perceived as a kind of laziness in the funeral home industry. Families of deceased people were coming in to funeral homes to make arrangements, but little effort was being made by funeral home workers to go to the families where they live and work. So, Thomlinson and Murphy decided to specialize solely in making house calls. In August, after several months of preparation, they found a small office suite on North Brand Boulevard and started Transitions Funeral Service, which arranges everything from the kind of casket used to the type of funeral service.

Although I stayed until 11:45 p.m., I wasn't give the opportunity to speak at the Oakmont V hearing because of so many concerned citizens. That is the reason for this letter to the News-Press. It has been my pleasure to live in Glendale for more than 60 years. During that time I have lived in three different homes, all in the hills. The building of each of these homes had some impact on the environment. The proposed Oakmont V development will impact the environment and will be far more sensitive to the environment than any of the three homes I have lived and presently still live in. It is impossible to write an EIR that will satisfy both sides.

The summer blockbuster movie season is starting to heat up, with movies as “X-Men,” “Star Trek” and “Harry Potter” opening soon. What films, currently showing or not, do you recommend for people seeking “alternative” choices? The best movie that I have seen recently is the Disney production of “Earth.” It is beautifully done! James Earl Jones is the narrator and the musical score “soars” with every scene.

Condos would not be good for community I am extremely against this proposed development of this land ("Residents pool their opposition to project," Sept. 26). We do not need more condos. We do not need an Armenian high school. Anyone who has ever been down there will tell you that the area is beautiful and should be left alone. We have enough ugly condos going up everywhere. This community is crowded enough. We have to stop this.
