GLENDALE — Friends, family and a throng of supporters from the Glendale Unified School District packed the board room at the district office on Tuesday afternoon to send off 12-year board of education member Pam Ellis. Ellis' term is up in April, and she decided not to run again about year ago, she said. "I'm a firm believer that there's a time for everything to come to an end," Ellis said. "I just feel that the time is right for me." But Ellis' decision to walk away from the dais is not without regret from the community.

This letter is in response to the news article on the two Armenian associations, as well as the members of the Glendale Unified School District and members of the Board of Education, distributing books to local high schools and other schools. Under the 1st Amendment, I do not see how they could be stopped. However, I find the Glendale Unified School District and Board of Education negligent if they do not, at the same time, make available pamphlets that present the Turkish point of view on the same subject.

Measure K actually received a 71.5% majority vote, and today taxpayers are seeing improvements made possible by the bond in nearly every school in our district.
