LA CRESCENTA — More than a half-dozen people in the Crescenta Valley were arrested last week in connection with drug-related offenses, Glendale police said. While the cluster of drug-related arrests was uncommon, drug issues, particularly among teens, have been a problem in the area, said North Command Lt. Ian Grimes. “It’s definitely something we are asking the officers to focus on,” Grimes said. In the latest arrest, police got a tip Saturday from a citizen who noticed two teens acting suspiciously at the restrooms in Glorietta Park on Verdugo Road, Grimes said.

Imagine yourself playing a word association game with me. I say, "Quark." What's your response? Someone with a strong science background might recognize "quark" as a quantum physics term. If you've used a certain computer program, you'll reply, "express." Only a few respondents will say, "cheese." Dairy farmers in Germany produce quark, a soft cheese, for homemakers and commercial bakers. A fresh cheese product with a short shelf life, quark would not travel well to America.

Nobody was ever delusional enough to think Arnold Schwarzenegger was some kind of saint, but the disclosure of his love child with his housekeeper and how she remained part of the family household for a decade shatters what little was left of his public image after the pathetic end of his political career. Incredibly, there are people who thought of Osama bin Laden as some kind of holy man, an apostle of moral righteousness, and not the fanatical murderer he was. It turns out he not only was shacked up in secluded luxury with three wives, but the owner of a vast collection of pornography — fuhsha in Arabic — to keep things lively.

Regarding Glendale's "Fair Housing Month" (April 11) -- and the current crusade for rent control -- there is nothing fair about rent controllers' desire to use the force of law to hold rents below market levels. A "fair" rent can only mean one freely consented to by both landlord and tenant, the only two parties to a rental transaction who have any moral right to be involved in determining rents. Rent control replaces the landlord's consent with a government decree.

Josh Kleinbaum A woman approached Chahe Keuroghelian while shopping at the 7-Eleven on Broadway recently and asked him if he remembered her. She reminded Keuroghelian of the time years ago when he helped mediate a problem with some tenants at the apartment building she manages. She told Keuroghelian she was grateful and promised the City Council candidate her vote. Keuroghelian hopes voters like that woman will remember his 13 years of service as intercultural relations officer for the Glendale Police Department instead of July 11, 1999, the night he waved a gun at his wife.
