I must disagree with the politically correct notion that use of the word resident is more correct than using the word citizen ("Indirect directions for expatriates," from June Casagrande's "A word, please" column, March 16). While it's true that my Webster's Dictionary advises that "citizen refers to a member of a state or nation ... " there are other equally reputable sources that add another "legally correct" dimension to their definition of citizen. For example, Black's Law Dictionary.

As a good friend of a legal, hardworking but underpaid, retired worker and current Glendale resident, who put in many years at a local Glendale hospital "doing the dirty work that no one else will do," I'd like to comment on the Section 8 issue because [my friend is] on the waiting list. Mr. Ray Shelton sure fits the classic definition of a "social liberal/economic conservative." To both sides of the equation, he could do well to remember the great truth in the classic maxim: "There but for the grace of God (or "fate," for some)

I would like to suggest that the News-Press consider publishing letters only originating from Glendale. I do not believe that residents and businesses in this city need opinions regarding such things as traffic circles from those not living here. I also do not see a need for letters like those of Mr. Harvey Pearson from Los Feliz, who seek to incite hatred in our city with inflammatory rhetoric. No matter how eloquent the prose, I see little value in reading veiled threats to "arms" for the sake of his bigotry.

Ken Robin remembers walking his dog in Los Feliz about four years ago when a stranger came up to him and asked if he plays tennis and Ping-Pong. When he said he did, the man, Marshall Pura, replied: "Then I've got the game for you. " Robin, who was living in the Bay Area at the time, was just in Los Feliz for vacation, but Pura still picked him up the next day and drove him to the Glendale YMCA to play a game of pickleball. "I didn't know what pickleball was. I didn't even know what Glendale was," Robin, a retired attorney who has since moved to Los Angeles, said this week after finishing up a game of the sport that's been around since the 1960s, but has been increasing in popularity over the past decade.

An advocacy group backing a proposed state law requiring adult film actors to use condoms launched a robocall campaign Thursday targeting a Los Angeles-area state assemblyman who they accuse of stymieing the legislation. Assemblyman  Mike Gatto  (D-Silver Lake), in a story by the Los Angeles Times, denied that he is holding the bill up. The  AIDS  Healthcare Foundation said it is blanketing Gatto's district with 100,000 robocalls, pre-recorded messages featuring former adult film actor Derrick Burts and Playboy bunny Rebekka Armstrong, who are  HIV -positive.

Glendale's development boom is spreading south from downtown to the city border as a planned six-story, 238-unit apartment complex received initial approval Tuesday in a unanimous vote by the City Council. Proposed by L.A.-based Avalon Land Co., LLC, Tropico Apartments would be built on a 91,926-square-foot lot at 435 W. Los Feliz Road, which was the site for two proposed developments in the past several years that were never completed. In 2005, a mixed-use project with condominiums and retail was approved but fell through.

City officials this week pushed forward with a new affordable housing development aimed at military veterans and their families, to be built in conjunction with Glendale Memorial Hospital. The proposed 48-unit multi-family development at the hospital-owned property at 202 W. Los Feliz Road would be a joint venture between Glendale Memorial, national nonprofit housing developer Mercy Housing, and New Directions — a nonprofit veteran social service provider. The project was chosen from a range of veteran housing proposals on Tuesday as several affordable housing developers lobbied the Housing Authority for a share of the city’s limited subsidies.
