I was a bit surprised that the solar fair of Saturday, April 6, wasn't covered in the Sunday paper. I learned about it from the News-Press calendar, went, and was quite pleased to get a good general introduction to solar energy and its uses. A fair can be a great way to get introduced to something. Sometimes you don't read about a topic, even though you have opportunities, but at a fair there are live people to ask, and that's special. Kudos to Glendale Water & Power for a great event.

Robert Chacon Once the Ferris wheel stopped spinning at the Adams Square Merchants Assn.'s sixth annual fair the association had raised a record amount. The group took in more than $10,000 at the Adams Square Summer A'Faire, though all of it will be used to pay for expenses for the $14,000 event. The up side is that the group will use less of the money it is given by the city to pay for the fair. Glendale gives the group $15,000 a year to improve the look of the business district.

Alex Coolman DOWNTOWN -- Lawrence Long stood by a car that looked quite a bit like a large yellow M&M. The car, explained Long, a salesman with Glendale's Environmental Motors Ltd., is a Corbin Sparrow, an electric vehicle intended for use by commuters. "They're not looking to go head to head with General Motors or Ford," he said. "It's a niche market vehicle." The Sparrow and other transportation options like it were on prominent display Wednesday at the Springfest 2001 transportation fair on Brand Boulevard, an event sponsored by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce.

It's official. Glendale has arrived. It now has a supper club on par with steakhouses in San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. It's no surprise because Michael Mina, head of the Mina Group of restaurants and the force behind Bourbon Steak Los Angeles, has 20 other concept restaurants in cities like San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. The Vegas vibe looms large here and I mean that in the best way possible. The space was created from scratch by in-demand design team AvroKO, evoking a first-class lounge feel.

This year's festival, which took place on Saturday at Woodrow Wilson Middle School, featured hands-on workshops where participants could build their own solar ovens, create solar etchings and watch demonstrations of solar power, such as how to power up a solar fountain.

For the first time, many families with children who have mental illness can sleep better at night knowing their child may have the opportunity to receive proper mental health treatment with the new Affordable Care Act, known by many as Obamacare. It seems that most of the families should have already been able to sleep better at night, inasmuch as Proposition 63 created funding for the mental health system in 2004. However, that has not been the case for many uninsured low-income families.

Fred Dray, while waiting for his flu shot, said that he was going to have his cholesterol level checked and more, because without health insurance, this was his best opportunity.

The city of Glendale is poised to do the right thing: increase electricity rates and refuse to coddle the consumers who like their electricity cheap and dirty. The fossil-fuel industry receives massive government subsidies, starting with virtually free extraction rights, and including permission to spoil the air, land and water, being let off the hook for causing tens of thousands of cancer deaths and hundreds of thousands of asthma attacks a year, receiving tax breaks, and, finally, being the number-one contributor to climate change while paying no carbon tax. It is time for the industry and its customers to pay their fair share and it is good to see Glendale moving in that direction.
