Summer Grindle of La Crescenta is a sophomore at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Get on board for "Thomas and the Magic Railroad." It's great fun for children, and the talking train models, with their stop-action reaction shots, make the movie artistically interesting. Although set in an alternate universe, full of anthropomorphic trains and magic gold dust used for transportation, some of the human-to-human relationships are hard to believe.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Unemployment declined by 0.1% in Glendale during the month of November, bucking a trend of rising rates seen over the last few months. But Don Nakamoto, labor market specialist for the the city, said the drop isn't anything to celebrate over yet. "It's just too small a number to be meaningful," Nakamoto said.

I was very surprised not see Mike Antonovich included in the 103 Most Influential People in Glendale. Not only is our county supervisor the mayor of Los Angeles County, but he has done so much for the city of Glendale. Some examples: Mike was right there on the chromium 6 issues, warning Glendale residents of its dangers. Mike also facilitated the removal of the DPSS office and facilitated its becoming a state-of-the-art building where the needs of the Glendale citizens can be met more quickly and efficiently.
