Tim Willert HIGHLAND PARK -- Charlie is back where he belongs. The 3-year-old dachshund was reunited with his family on Tuesday after nearly a week away from home. "We thought somebody had stolen him," said 22-year-old Cindy Bustamante of Highland Park, the dog's owner. Charlie was discovered lying on Charters Avenue near York Boulevard in Eagle Rock on July 4 by La Crescenta resident Sonya Louthan. Louthan took the unidentified pooch to a pet hospital in Montrose, where X-rays revealed a broken foot that doctors said would cost $1,100 to repair.

As a citizen of Northeast Los Angeles, reader of the News-Press and member of Los Angeles' shared cultural history, I am shocked at the News-Press' smarmy and dismissive regard for our remarkable Glendale Federal Bank Headquarters on Brand Boulevard in Glendale. In short, this magnificent building -- in a city where far too many magnificent buildings have been needlessly altered or torn down -- deserves a safe haven from the cultural terrorists who would rape her and deprive future generations of our collective memory.

The United States was only a few years old and California was still under Spanish rule when Jose Maria Verdugo applied for permission to graze his cattle and horses in our fertile valleys. Verdugo, a native of Loreto, in Baja California, was serving as a military guard at the mission at San Gabriel. In 1784 he received one of the first land grants made in Alta California by the King of Spain and one of the largest ever issued during the Spanish occupation. That land now incorporates a good part of present day Glendale, Burbank, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, the west part of Pasadena and the area in the triangle formed by the junction of the Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River, according to Carroll W. Parcher in his chronicle, “Glendale Community Book.” The huge land grant remained intact for less than 100 years.
