In City Council chambers packed with about 100 people, Glendale council members said they were not fazed by a lawsuit filed last week in federal district court asking a judge to remove a city statue honoring women victimized by the Japanese Army during World War II. The statue isn't going anywhere, they added. “I think the lawsuit will be put to bed very quickly and we can move on and we can be proud of this statue,” said Councilwoman Laura Friedman, noting that she was glad the statue has focused international attention on Glendale and the women honored by the 1,100-pound memorial in Central Park.

WILL FLEET I have an idea and a plan to get you more business. -- Eli Isenberg's advertising sales opening statement Eli would not be impressed. I have no idea, no plan, how to write this column.

I came up with the bright idea to start a newspaper in the Antelope Valley, and was astonished to find that I had support.
