Some Glendale police personnel may have been moving a little slower over the last couple of days as they nurse some sore muscles from their 120-mile relay race over the weekend. The Glendale police was one of the 250 teams that ran the race through the Mojave desert beginning on Saturday and ending Sunday. “We ran it faster this year than last year,” said Sgt. Tim Feely, the team’s captain. The Glendale team came in 32nd place overall, fourth in its division and shaved 17 minutes off last year’s time.

Amber Willard GLENDALE -- Glendale Police Officer Stan Mar has gone through a new pair of running shoes every three months this year while training for an annual relay. Mar is one of the 20 members of the department's team for this weekend's Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay, which covers 120 miles. "I look for sales," Mar laughed of his rotating shoes. But his training for the event was not anything to laugh at. The team, including four alternates, has hit the pavement on city streets and the track at Pasadena's Rose Bowl, as well as area runs like the 50-mile Scorpion Race in San Dimas.

I'd like to respond point by point to Albert Eryakub's letter in the News-Press. First, he was asking, as if rhetorically, why the Turks didn't exterminate the Armenians within the first 600 years of the Turkish occupation of Armenia and chose to do it in 1915. The answer is simpler than he would like to know. During those 600 years, the Turks were busy engaged in occupying more lands, from the Balkans to north Africa to Arabia, so they couldn't have embarked on such a massive endeavor.

G lendale filmmaker Carly Lyn chose the unlikely pairing of genres — Western and science fiction — in her new film "A Foundling." Lyn, 25, wrote and directed the film receiving its premiere at the Dances with Films festival next week in West Hollywood. Another twist was the casting of two Asian actresses in the lead roles. It was all these elements that piqued the interest of film festival producers, said Leslee Scallon, co-founder of the festival. "We are looking for films as interesting for as many minutes as they are on the screen," she said.
