Jackson Bell For four local families, Memorial Day will not just be about honoring the country's fallen soldiers. They will be mourning their sons, who were killing in Iraq this past year. The men -- Eric Ayon, Todd Bryant, Donald J. Cline Jr. and Rel Ravago IV -- will be added to the Glendale Veterans Memorial, on a new wall for the war in Iraq. Although the black granite slab will not be completed until July, a mock-up with the names will be at Monday's ceremony.

Janine Marnien Giving President George W. Bush power to use military force preemptively against Iraq was an unconstitutional move by Congress, panelists at a forum hosted by St. Bede Parish Center said. The decision, passed by the House of Representatives on Oct. 10 and by the Senate on Oct. 11, is not in keeping with the constitutional spirit of separation of powers, panelist Allan Ides told a crowd of about 50 people Monday night at the church.

Why would anyone want to vote for George W. Bush for president? I have racked my brain to come up with even one reason to allow him four more years to mislead and mismanage this nation. Consider the possible Bush arguments and my counterpoint. Bush argument: The economy is strong. My response: Wrong. Bush will be the first president since Herbert Hoover to preside over a net loss of jobs during his time in office. Bush argument: The war is going well in Iraq.

The comments of Harry Scolinos in two articles in the Aug. 31 issue of the News-Press misrepresented Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) and his ongoing efforts for the betterment of the U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the residents of Glendale. Our family knows from personal experience the deep concern and personal commitment of Congressman Schiff for issues affecting our U.S. troops. During the 15 months that our son was serving in Iraq, I wrote numerous letters and made many phone calls to the White House, Laura Bush, the Department of Defense, U.S. senators, the U.S. Army Central Command and many news organizations.

This election is more important than any other presidential election I have seen. I no longer take my freedoms for granted -- and I most certainly don't want to lose any of them! I've never gotten involved in political campaigns -- until this year. The difference between what we "have" and what we "need" is too big to ignore. There are simply too many reliable sources "out there" who say that the war in Iraq could end up a civil war, and that Bush runs his office like a dictatorship -- you are either in (or silent)

Sarah Hill Holding candles and signs that said "Meet with Cindy," about two dozen people stood along Hollywood Way waving to honking cars and holding fervent discussions on President Bush and the war in Iraq. They were participating in one of several vigils that took place nationwide Wednesday night to support Cindy Sheehan, a California woman who camped outside of President George W. Bush's Ranch in Crawford, Texas, asking that he meet with her to talk about her son, Casey, a U.S. Army specialist, who was killed in Iraq in April 2004.

To those who have accused Mike Gomez of dishonoring our troops in Iraq, or of being unpatriotic or just naive after his Community Commentary (“It’s time to take a stand against the military,” Oct. 29), it should be noted that he is guilty only of being superfluous. His article, while open for discussion and disagreement, should not permit personal attacks on his motives, his character or his intelligence. Some have, either intentionally or unintentionally, maligned Gomez to make him appear to be totally anti-military.
