When I read the letter from Jurutha Brown regarding a woman calling her and her daughter "the N-word," I felt a profound sadness. But I also felt admiration for Jurutha's strength and courage. Upon being subjected to shocking and disgusting behaviour, Jurutha did what she needed to do to reassure and protect her 8-year-old daughter. Then she wrote a letter to theNews-Press, informing the community about what had happened. Glendale has a long way to go before this kind of mindless prejudice no longer exists.

Gary Moskowitz NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- When he stood at the rostrum, or podium, on the California Senate floor and brought the gavel down to quiet 50 colleagues, "Senator" Kevin Riutzel felt a sense of power. And Kevin, a 17-year-old senior at Hoover High School, felt equally humbled when forced to stand at the same rostrum and argue for or against issues like bilingual education and pupil health. Kevin was one of 50 high school students selected from 250 applicants to attend the 12th annual Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project Conference last week in Sacramento.

This weekend saw the launch of a month?s worth of performances of Neil Simon?s ?The Sunshine Boys? at the Luna Playhouse in Glendale. Local actors Aramazd Stepanian and Carl Coughlan star under the direction of Edgar Allan Poe IV ? a descendant of the famous writer?s brother. I headed down to the Luna Playhouse Sunday for the opening performance. The theater is small ? it seats only about 46 ? but, in an intimate way, that brings the audience closer to the action on stage. I was pleased to find that it was pleasantly cool inside, because my last visit to the theater was in the heat of mid-July.

Janine Marnien Clifford "Skip" Lindeman was driving to church one Sunday when he realized he wanted to increase the time he spent preaching. Lindeman periodically delivered messages from the pulpit as a guest pastor at various churches, and had served as the interim pastor for the Arvin Union Congregational Church near Bakersfield from 1990-91. He had also spent about 10 years in broadcast journalism and teaching, but wanted to dedicate more time to working with people one-on-one.

Marshall Allen GLENDALE -- While people at Monday's Memorial Day ceremony in Glendale remembered lost loved ones or felt pride for our country, I felt mostly guilty. Guilty because this was the first time in my 30 years that I'd ever attended a Memorial Day event -- and I was only there for a News-Press assignment. For the first time, Memorial Day wasn't just a barbecue, trip to the beach or vacation day for me. Of course, I felt proud, too, but it was at the ceremony that my true feelings about Memorial Day were exposed.

I don’t understand golf. Little ball, skinny stick, riding around in funny carts. I think I’m saving that one for old age. What are you saving for retirement? Playing cards or going fishing? We plan and save for the future so we can stop working and relax. It all sounds wonderful; in fact, many of us are in a big hurry to “do nothing.” But if wellness means having a sense of purpose and contentment, maybe we need to rethink the concept of retirement. Retirement began in the ’60s as a means to take the edge off the then high unemployment rate and bring younger, stronger workers into the work place.

For Frank Giron — a 76-year-old author of adventure-based short stories — writing is a “healthy sickness.” He spent his early years working as a dishwasher while following his dream of becoming a writer. At the age of 18, he was finally able to get his first two short stories published. That gave him a sense of hope and inspiration. Giron is a spiritual individual who believes in openness, and said he believes in the old American way of life. He is not a fan of capitalism and of the larger corporations.

"Prayer is a two-way conversation with God. It involves listening, attentiveness and communion. It is actually enjoying the privilege of God's presence." Dr. Deborah Newman I was in a study group of women recently and we talked about listening to other people as well as to God. The leader's name was Anne and she led us in a discussion of questions such as "What is a good listener?" "Why do we listen?" and "How can we listen better?" Anne also asked us what some of the character qualities of a good listener were, and we all nodded in agreement at the answers.

Jody Kussin It was summer 1984. I was excited to be moving "Up North," to begin a graduate program in clinical psychology. My parents were relieved that I was continuing with my education, after having taken "a year off" upon completion of my UCLA bachelor's degree. We met once before we moved in together. He flew out from Ohio. He said my parents were bourgeoisie and too into "thank-you-note-formality mentality." I was grateful someone else had noticed.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE - Constitutional issues aren't played out in court rooms and legal journals alone. An annual holiday program at Crescenta Valley High School has been completely revised this year because of concerns that its content might be seen as a violation of the First Amendment. The "Feast of Lights," which for nearly 40 years has followed a script based on passages from the Bible, will have none of the scriptural references when performed this week.

There's a new show choir in town, and unlike the majority of groups across the state, and even the country, this 45-member choir is made up of children as young as 9 years old. In May, the Mark Keppel Elementary show choir - who attend Glendale Unified's visual and performing arts magnet school - is set to become one of the youngest, if not the youngest, to be evaluated by a panel of judges when they perform at a music festival in Anaheim. PHOTOS: Mark Keppel Elementary show choir rehearsal Their teacher, Jennifer Epstein, said she has overwhelming faith in her charges' potential.

Michelle Reiter lost $4,000 in cash, a 32-inch TV and a laptop computer when her Glendale home was burglarized May 7. But also stolen that day was something far more valuable - her 11-year-old teacup Yorkshire terrier, Sophie. Since that time, she has been frantically searching for Sophie, not only because she's her greatest love, but because Sophie needs periodic medication for her bowels. Sophie was reported stolen after burglars entered Reiter's home between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the 600 block of Beulah Street through a rear bathroom window and ransacked the inside, according to Glendale Police Department reports.

Lars von Trier has long rivaled Hamlet as the most melancholy of melancholy Danes. With “Melancholia,” his new film, he makes it official. Fifteen years ago, Von Trier had his first real American success with “Breaking the Waves,” which earned newcomer Emily Watson an Oscar nomination. The best known of his subsequent works - “Dancer in the Dark,” “Dogville” and “Manderlay” - all replicated that film's template: Take a likable young woman (Bjork, Nicole Kidman and Bryce Dallas Howard, respectively)

Weak shaking from a magnitude 4.3 earthquake in the San Fernando Valley was felt as far away as the Grapevine and Orange County, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. But the shaking was not enough to cause damage. And the shaking was variable, depending on the neighborhood. For example, Anthony Guarino, a seismic analyst at Caltech in Pasadena, said he didn't feel the quake, but his colleagues across the street at the U.S. Geological Survey felt a sharp jolt. The quake was centered in a highly seismic area in the mountains north of the Valley, near the same area where the 1971 Sylmar earthquake and the 1994 Northridge quake occurred, Guarino said.

Kim Fraisse's final high school water polo match ended in a loss for her Crescenta Valley High Falcons, but it illustrated as clearly as any in her stellar career just what made her a consummate winner in three years as a varsity standout. With 278 goals over that span, which included a 74-19 record for the Falcons with two league titles and three trips to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals or better, Fraisse had already established herself as a player who could take over the biggest games and put the team on her back.

Glendale and Burbank officials on Friday said Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest proposals for closing a $19.1-billion state budget deficit could weigh down on the region and affect local residents. The governor proposed closing the gap with $12.4 billion in spending cuts, about $3.4 billion in funding shifts and about $3.4 billion in federal funds. The current deficit is the third major budget hole that Schwarzenegger and the Legislature have faced in two years as tax revenues have plummeted during the economic downturn.

Depending on the route, I pass up to three hospitals on my way home from work. Not bad for a commute that clocks in just short of seven miles. Passing by those august steel and glass buildings used to make me feel safe. Now, it just makes me sad. Just about everyone I know has had an issue of some kind of another with health care. The mother of a friend of mine got hit with a six-figure bill for end-of-life care of her husband — and they were insured. My own stepmother died in a San Diego hospital bed following supposedly uncomplicated neck surgery.
