"Golden Rule 2002" editorial (Jan. 1) versus calumnious letters Jan. 1: It's too bad the News-Press didn't print its call to healing editorial separately in time, instead of juxtaposing such venomously contradictory, name-calling letters on the vary same day. When Glendale (and environs) patriots come under such patently scurrilous, name-calling attacks in public, one can only advise unto them: Keep your powder dry, good men (and women). And should your next mayor have the ill-advised gall to start that whole discredited flag-lowering nonsense all over again, you can rapidly renew another recall campaign -- and this time efficaciously de rigueur.

The city of Glendale has a very negative reputation for traffic problems, both for vehicles and pedestrians. Motorists do not upon entering the city become irresponsible. They are simply complying with the city's position that everything must be done to not impede the flow of traffic. So, when we read about hit and runs, traffic accidents, failed stops and speeding in Glendale, we now know the answer. Motorists “hit” can “run” because if they stopped, they would be impeding the flow of traffic.

The blaming and excuse giving, the sarcasm and the vindictiveness of Mr. Donald Jarvis' letter of June 19 is bothersome. Never is there a hint of acknowledging responsibility for his action and attitude, just raw anger for having been denied leniency by Officer McLaughlin. But of course, leniency -- like respect -- has to be earned. Notwithstanding the right or wrong reason for his letter, what elevates the letter to the level of troubling is Mr. Jarvis' job as Spanish teacher at Glendale High School, a position of trust and influence to young, malleable minds.

Elizabeth Grace Haydock. Betsy was born on May 12, 1923 in St. Louis, Mo. to her parents William T. Haydock and Grace Gregory Haydock. Her parents and sister Mary Clay, pre-deceased her. Her parents left Missouri first for New Jersey then headed west for California where she grew up in Long Beach and Glendale, Ca. She graduated from UCLA, married and had two children. As a divorcee and single mother, she moved her family to Fresno where she taught elementary school for over 15 years. After retiring she moved to San Clemente, Ca. to be near the beach she loved and family where she thrived, until very recently, for over 27 years.

I was interested in the opinions expressed by various clergy in the In Theory article, “Wide-ranging Sunday school curriculum” (March 29). I happen to know the organizers of this children’s class and the religious community for which it is a core activity. These types of children’s classes are not, as a couple of the commentators stated, a “destructive . . . New Age indoctrination” nor are they an attempt to create a generic, watered-down version of each religious tradition that will confuse the children.

Poor Paul Carney. He has become the whipping boy for the Armenian community for daring to vent his spleen in frustration over issues that remain unresolved for the sake of political correctness. To be sure, Carney's letter was intemperate, injudicious and ill-conceived. It never should have been published. If the Armenian community made Glendale what it is today, as some have claimed, then I'd rather have the old Glendale, with all its faults. It was a nice, quiet town when I graduated from Glendale High School 50 years ago. In the interim, my family and I have lived and worked on the opposite side of the planet as well as elsewhere in the USA, but we've always gravitated back to Glendale.

schools? James Speed, in his letter on June 11, declares "... how ridiculous it is to suggest that history can be interpreted." Apparently because of Speed's non-judgmental view of history, he couches every interpretation that he makes with a non-committal phrase such as "it could be argued that" or "a thought, not even a suggestion." Regardless of his personal take on history, this is a Community Forum, and the original community issue here regards what is taught in local public schools.

At the end of every year, and after all the testing that my students are put through, I am freer to engage them in nonstandard activities that have nothing to do with exit exams or “common formative assessments.” My very favorite week of the year was last week, when each of my classes spent five days struggling to create a new world on a different planet. Earth has been destroyed by thermonuclear war, and this group (class) was fortunate enough to have been rocketed to an Earth-like planet and is now charged with creating a new, conceivably better world than the one they came from.

Where was Spence when the troops were honored? I want to thank the News-Press for providing excellent coverage of the biggest event in La Canada Flintridge last week, the American Pride Rally sponsored by the Foothills Republican Club. It was a truly inspirational event. But it didn't seem to provide enough inspiration to attract La Canada's City Council members. The absence of Mayor Dave Spence was especially odd. I would have thought he would be willing to lend the prestige of his office to such a worthy event honoring the bravery of America's armed forces in Iraq.

It seems I?m always telling people not to worry about their grammar. An odd thing for a grammar buff to say, I know, but hear me out. It?s not that I think people shouldn?t worry about their grammar. It?s that I believe you must prioritize. If you start worrying about every little question of capitalization, hyphenation, etc., you?re in big trouble. For example, I recently heard from a writer who was agonizing over whether to capitalize the C in, ?Hello, Captain.? Is ?captain? a title, she wondered?
