It comes as no surprise that Glendale Humane Society board members, past and present, continue to dig themselves deeper and deeper into a quagmire of deception. Arrogant individuals associated with this dysfunctional organization are preoccupied with what they refer to as "philosophical differences," a.k.a., personality conflicts, while the mission of this organization continues to be compromised. Society bylaws, conveniently ignored in the past, are suddenly the focus of this internal tug of war. Former board members cry foul while current board members make the same accusation.

In her response to a letter written by Chrissi Fernandez, Glendale Humane Society volunteer Betty Evans cited Ms. Fernandez's "glaring omission of facts" with regard to the recent cancellation of a Glendale Humane Society mobile adoption event at the local PETCO outlet. The Board of Directors of the Glendale Humane Society wishes to make public all facts relating to this recent incident and set the record straight. On July 27, the Glendale PETCO store sponsored a fund-raising opportunity (Round Up/Spay Today 2002)

During the past few years, much has been said about the Glendale Humane Society, its board and its practices. The criticism has been both real and contrived. Unfortunately, the lawsuit against the current GHS board and its president is no different. While the court's decision is pending, the particulars of the lawsuit cannot be discussed. However, it seems appropriate to make some observations and also restate the vision of those of us who were elected as the replacement board to the GHS on March 10. When reviewing recent letters to this newspaper, the word "contrived" is the most obvious because, even though the current board publicly maintains a "no comment" policy regarding the lawsuit, privately they have continued to spin their point of view to the GHS volunteers, staff and even at their places of business.

Chrissi Fernandez's Community Commentary, printed March 7, invites the current board members of the Glendale Humane Society to take this "opportunity to seize the moment and make a significant difference ... to enrich the lives of Glendale's animals and residents." I am delighted to report that the GHS has undertaken just that task. The GHS is undergoing great renovations in policy, facility, fund development and service to the community. Admittedly, change is difficult.

Regarding the Glendale Humane Society's court complaint filed that alleges funds were unauthorized but spent by three board members: Why has the current board referred this matter to the society's insurance carrier? It would be entirely fair that, if these charges are true, the Humane Society should be reimbursed from the personal funds of those three board members rather than have the GHS pay for the higher insurance premiums that almost certainly will be assessed for defense and settlement of the case.

In response to letters published Feb. 14 and 20 regarding the Glendale Humane Society recall: I have sat quietly while reading all the comments contained in these letters, and can endure it in silence no more. What continues to baffle me is that these writers still don't get it. There is so much more to this story than they have stated. It's called accountability to the membership. In corporate America, when the majority of a board resigns, it signifies something has drastically gone wrong, and it is incumbent upon the leadership of the board to give an account to the shareholders of the reasons behind such an exodus.

In response to "Keep a tight rein on board, T-shirts," (News-Press, May 30) and "Shelter 'discount' didn't apply to her," (News-Press, June 2). Well, I guess some people just can't help themselves. Like sharks, when they smell blood in the water, they just have to take a bite. What is it they think they are accomplishing by puffing up their personal frustration regarding, let's face it, a minor misunderstanding into an issue of civic proportion? In the course of any given day, I encounter store clerks, contractors and corporate executives who say and do things that, in my opinion, are rude, wrong and unfair.

Now cometh the angry husband. I suppose the utter disingenuousness of Paulette Ramsey Wood's husband's commentary, printed in the Feb. 27 News-Press, could be summed up by the fact that for all his verbal flailing, at no point does he let the readers he hopes to persuade know that his true "beef" boils down to the fact that others believe his wife's behavior in this most recent play for power has been atrocious and...

Chuck Benedict Anyone who has enjoyed a telephone conversation with Marybelle (Akers) Van Wie (Glendale High School, Class of 1929) knows that she, though legally blind, has a marvelous insight into the past and a good view of today, and the enthusiasm in her voice describes memories that paint vivid historical scenes. "I'm still in good health," she says, not disclosing her age, "and the only surgeries I've ever had have been to help my eyesight."

Change leads to improvements I want to thank the News-Press for its article (June 7) describing a lawsuit filed by a disgruntled former member of the Glendale Humane Society board of directors who is seeking to oust members of the current board. Publicizing this contemptible action provides a useful service. I am a volunteer at the GHS and I find the quote attributed to Paulette Ramsay Wood astonishing. Her assertion that "when we officially take office, the residents of Glendale and the animals will be better served" is breathtaking in its implication that the rescued animals currently receive inferior care.

While family members of “The Duke” looked on, Glendale High School's auditorium was officially renamed the John Wayne Performing Arts Center on Friday to honor the 1925 graduate of the school. As a student of Glendale High in the 1920s, Wayne was known as Marion Morrison. He played on the Nitro's football team, wrote for the campus newspaper and served as chairman of the senior dance committee. He was also a member of Glendale's stage crew, performed in several theatrical productions and was voted by his classmates as senior class president.

The Glendale High School dominated at the 2011 USA Dance/Drill Nationals at the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend, winning six awards, including four first-place prizes. Glendale also recaptured the coveted co-ed title, its 12th win in the event in 13 years. “It feels amazing,” said long-time coach Kelly Palmer. “Obviously we were most concerned with the co-ed position. We told ourselves going in anything else would be icing on the cake, but I don’t think we expected to get so much icing.” The first place wins came in the junior varsity large military division, varsity small military and large military divisions, and the co-ed division.

VALENCIA — Missing what is sure to be an ample amount of hype — along with shoulder pads, helmets and linemen — the Crescenta Valley High and Glendale football teams squared off on a hot Wednesday afternoon for the first time with longtime Falcons Coach Alan Eberhart manning the Nitros sidelines. What transpired was a spirited back-and-fourth seven-on-seven contest that saw Glendale show plenty of fight — a far cry from an abysmal performance earlier in the day — but still come up short against Crescenta Valley, which rallied from two touchdowns down to win, 38-30, in overtime.

Norm Hayhurst, who coached Glendale High School's Frank Wykoff to the first of three Olympic gold medals, was one of the greats among high school coaches. Hayhurst, born in 1893 in Arkansas, moved West with his parents and eventually settled in Aspen, Colo. Aspen's cold winters made gymnastics popular and Hayhurst honed his skills on the parallel bars under the tutelage of a high school coach named Quigley. By the time he enrolled at the University of Arizona, he was so skilled that he was asked to help coach other students.

Construction on the two high school campuses is not scheduled for at least another two years, but Glendale Unified School board members are already discussing how to stretch a $21-million budget as much as possible for each school.
