Beeline fare rise is reasonable I would definitely continue to ride the Beeline if fares went up (“Beeline costs may transfer,” Oct. 1). It is efficient, and even at higher fares, very reasonable. JARRETT ANDERSON Glendale Beeline is a lifeline to this reader I’m a 74-year-old who lost some eyesight from a 2008 stroke and can no longer drive (“Beeline costs may transfer,” Oct. 1). The Beeline gives me “a life” as I can go anyplace in Glendale, La Crescenta and La Cañada (with it and my legs)

I used to live in Glendale, and I have seen lots of reckless driving on the streets. Now I live in West Los Angeles, and I don’t see that as often as I did in Glendale. Manuel Hernandez’s letter (“City deserves driving reputation,” Sept. 17) stated that he has been exposed to the rudest, most aggressive and uncaring drivers he has ever seen. In the seven years that I lived in Glendale, I saw lots of bad habits. I noticed tailgating and people running red lights.

The Board of Education and I would like to thank the Glendale/La Crescent community for their overwhelming support of Measure S. We are extremely grateful to the community for the unwavering endorsement of the Glendale Unified School District. On a personal note, I would like to thank those of you who participated in the Yes on S campaign. There are too many individuals to thank, but I would like to highlight three individuals who spearheaded the campaign — co-chairs Harry Hull and school board member Mary Boger, and school board President Greg Krikorian.

Sometimes I get tickets to sitcom tapings and game shows. Most recently I got tickets to "Let's Make A Deal" at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. I invited my wonderful dog-walker Julie Cummins and her 18-year old daughter, Nicole, an adorable actress trying to make it big in Hollywood. Julie and I are both struggling financially, and while waiting in the long line of other costumed hopefuls, we fantasized about what we would do if we got the unlikely chance to make a deal.
