I am a 40-year resident of Glendale, barely long enough to be invited to the old timers picnic. As I have followed the flag lowering controversy, I have seen many miss the point -- Opposition is not against the Armenian Genocide; it is about lowering the flag. Then comes Richard Jouroyan, who does get it. This is his second letter. Unfortunately I don't have the first one, but I remember it struck the same right-on response as this one, "Everyone or no one wins," May 4. I suggest that Mr. Jouroyan be asked to head up a committee to come up with a recommendation to the City Council to put this issue to rest.

Mr. Gregg proudly holds the $5-million school fee to the face of the Glendale community, as if he is doing a favor. What Mr. Gregg is not saying is if he will pay the fee over 10 years or in a lump sum. Mr. Gregg is right. $5 million is a tremendous amount of money, and it makes him appear as a proud Glendale resident. What Mr. Gregg fails to realize is, that amount means little when the Glendale school population will probably increase by two children per household.

I am writing in response to the recent letter from Nancy Klein concerning the cruel treatment of animals by the Ramos Circus. I support Klein in asking the Glendale community and the City Council to please protect both Glendale residents and animals used by circuses by pledging never to host a circus that uses animals again. During its recent stint in Glendale, Ramos Bros. Circus unnecessarily jeopardized public safety and animal welfare twice by letting a camel escape and gallop toward a busy intersection on Nov. 23, and, just a week later, allowing three dogs to escape and run toward traffic.

The message by the Armenian National Committee is on target, that "Now is the time to make a difference." It is time that the "Armenian Community" accepts responsibility. Success on any major scale requires them to accept responsibility, as does the whole Glendale community. In the final analysis, the one quality that all successful ventures have is the ability to take on responsibility. It will take more than money. It takes initiative to reach the whole Armenian community.

Lauren Masters Jean Maluccio was surprised when she found out she was one of this year's YWCA Legacy Award recipients. "I'm uncomfortable with these things," said Maluccio, the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce's executive director. "I just sort of do what I do, and I'm glad to be able to do it." She is among four Glendale women who will be honored for their volunteer work in the community at the seventh annual YWCA Legacy Award luncheon Thursday.
