Ken Robin remembers walking his dog in Los Feliz about four years ago when a stranger came up to him and asked if he plays tennis and Ping-Pong. When he said he did, the man, Marshall Pura, replied: "Then I've got the game for you. " Robin, who was living in the Bay Area at the time, was just in Los Feliz for vacation, but Pura still picked him up the next day and drove him to the Glendale YMCA to play a game of pickleball. "I didn't know what pickleball was. I didn't even know what Glendale was," Robin, a retired attorney who has since moved to Los Angeles, said this week after finishing up a game of the sport that's been around since the 1960s, but has been increasing in popularity over the past decade.

Iva Carrico, winner of the News-Press Woman of Achievement in 1992. In my opinion, she should win the News-Press Woman of Bigotry in 2002. After reading about her ignorant opinion at the recent City Council meeting, I, being an Armenian, born and raised in America, am appalled by her words of ignorance. Armenians make up a great part of the Glendale community, and make it the beautiful city it is. Carrico said that "Armenians are the evildoers"? It seems as though she's the evildoer in many people's eyes now. I'm very happy that Rafi Manoukian is the new mayor, and I'm sure that he'll make a lot of great contributions to the Glendale community.

It is a well-known understanding in the Glendale community that the Greggs qualify as entrepreneurs. The definition of an entrepreneur is: "A person who organizes, manages and assumes responsibility for a business or other enterprise." Why would the city of Glendale be obligated in any way to compensate the Greggs for having chosen to develop something that clearly is not for the good of the community or area and expect the taxpayers to pay them a "profit" for not developing it. As entrepreneurs, they "bet on the come and the come never came."

While competing in the Western State Conference championships, the members of the Glendale Community College men's and women's track and field teams had something more to fend off besides their opponents Friday. With a howling and frigid wind blowing throughout the majority of the meet at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, many of the Vaqueros were able to successfully conquer the opposition and the conditions. It turned out to be a big day in particular for Glendale women's distance runner Lizzy Nelson, who won a pair of events and helped the Vaqueros win the overall team competition.

PASADENA - Two weeks ago, the prospect of the Glendale Community College men's golf team getting out of the Western State Conference Final and qualifying for the Southern California Regionals was bleak. But when the Vaqueros placed second in a conference match April 14 at Oakmont Country Club, there was a glimmer of hope that the team could qualify for the postseason. With three of the four postseason spots already locked up heading into Monday's conference finals, Glendale college would have to best the remaining four schools to earn a berth.

Five of the six tennis players from Glendale Community College encountered their first taste of postseason competition as freshmen. Though none of the members from the Glendale men's and women's tennis teams advanced to the state tournament following the second day of the California Community College Athletic Assn. State Regionals in Ventura County, the Vaqueros will at least have the luxury of having gained some much-needed experience to help them heading into next season. Two men's doubles teams and one women's doubles team and a singles player from Glendale all had their runs end Friday.

  VALLEY GLEN - There is still hope for the Glendale Community College baseball team, but it is fleeting. Much as the Vaqueros' opportunities seemed to dissipate into the hot afternoon, Glendale's chances to return to the postseason waned, as well, on Thursday following an 8-4 Western State Conference South Division loss to host Los Angeles Valley. “Our chances are slim right now,” said Vaqueros Coach Chris Cicuto of making the playoffs. “Obviously, we didn't help ourselves today.” Heading into Thursday, Glendale (20-15, 13-7 in conference)
