CITY HALL — When longtime Glendale firefighter Robert Garibay spent a year in Iraq serving as a medic in the U.S. Army National Guard, he left behind his wife and two teenage children. But while she was left on her own, Garibay's wife didn't have to cope with diminished finances thanks to supplementary salary payments from the city of Glendale. "She had to be the mom and the dad and the money definitely helped out with financial woes," Garibay said. "It made it very easy for me to be over there.

Tears welled in 75-year-old Korean War veteran Bryan Moss’ eyes as he explained his teenage decision to volunteer for military service. After graduating from Hoover High School in 1951, Moss knew he might be drafted to fight in the Korean War, so he did what he said anyone in his position would have done: He signed up. “It’s just something you did,” retired Petty Officer 1st Class Moss said, explaining that attitudes toward...

Elsie Nulle had graduated high school in New Jersey and was enrolled in nursing school when an unusual opportunity arose. She and a few of her cohorts were invited for tea with Franklin D. Roosevelt's mother to discuss the women's military future. As the First Mother explained, women who joined the service and filled administrative positions freed men to fight on the front lines. The talk with Roosevelt's mother was one of the motivating factors for Elsie Nulle, who became one of the first women to enlist in the United States Marine Corps during World War II. "She said that was like college to them," said Nancy Watson, Elsie Nulle's daughter.

Questioning conduct of Glendale's finest Just when I thought we had reform under Police Chief Randy Adams, I look at the front page of the News-Press on Sept. 16 -- two meat-stick cops harassing homeless or day laborers attempting to make an honest buck without stealing or panhandling. As an expert in police procedures, I see "illegal" "Terry" searches, pat downs, hand-twisting, misapplication and abuse of discretion. Generally, it is a cowardly act, and this department needs to be ashamed.

I would like to commend the Glendale News-Press and staff writer Melanie Hicken for highlighting the funding cuts that the library and community services could incur in the coming fiscal year (“Libraries could shoulder brunt of budget cuts,” May 12). In particular, I applaud the use of the word “disproportionate” in relation to the cuts these two departments could face. As the article points out, roughly 44% of the service cuts would come from these two departments even though they account for only about 10% of the General Fund.

Danny Baca has applied to dozens of jobs and always hears the same line: “We'll get back to you.” But they don't. The Glendale resident is one of several local veterans who are struggling to find employment. The jobless rate in October for those who served during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is 12.1% , compared to the civilian rate of 9%. This disparity, which has lasted for several months, has stirred the political pot in the days leading up to Veterans Day. On Thursday, the Senate passed part of President Obama's jobs plan that gives a tax credit to companies that hire veterans . The bill is now pending before the House.

I?ve written before about the changing status of girls in public schools and in higher education. Attendance in my advanced placement courses are, and have been for the past four or five years, 60-40 girls over boys. That pretty much mirrors a trend in colleges throughout the land, and they both represent a complete reversal in percentages from all the preceding years. But what to make of it? Is there an evolutionary shift taking place? Have centuries of discrimination against women finally caught up with us?
