Not having anything to do over summer vacation wasn't a problem for children and teens who found their way to Dunsmore Park on Tuesday. As part of Glendale Parks and Recreation's Days of Summer Fun program, they played various games, sports and participated in arts and crafts activities. The program is run on a drop-in basis, so partici- pants can come and go as they wish between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday through Sept. 1. The program also includes enrichment activities and performing arts.

It was with sadness that I read the obituary for Howard D. Keith in the Jan. 15 Glendale News-Press. I know that an obituary can include only so much information. However, I would like to elaborate on Howard's life and contribution to our community. Keith was a Korean War veteran serving in the U.S. Army. Returning from the service, he attended Pierce College, graduating with a degree in horticulture. He was a pioneer stock car racer at the Saugus Speedway, racing Hudson and Oldsmobiles.

Mark R. Madler The teenage boy critically wounded by a stray bullet in Montrose Community Park over the weekend spent his first night in the hospital talking with a friend on the phone and experiencing "off and on" pain, his parents said Monday. Glendale Police, meanwhile, continued its investigation into the apparently random shooting and seek help from the public to find whoever fired the gun. Surgeons at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena have recommended keeping the small-caliber bullet inside the kidney of Michael Booth, 13, to prevent additional trauma or bleeding, said the boy's father, John Booth, of Reseda.

Mark R. Madler A teenager playing catch with a Wiffle Ball at Montrose Community Park was struck and injured Sunday afternoon by a stray bullet that police said was fired from an unknown location. The 13-year-old was listed in critical but stable condition with a gunshot wound to his chest at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. "Whether this was intentional or unintentional, we are asking that if the public heard anything or saw anything to contact the police," Lorenz added.

Janine Marnien LA CRESCENTA -- After more than two years, a date has finally been set for the county Board of Supervisors to vote on a proposed ordinance amendment regarding recreational vehicles in La Crescenta and Montrose. The vote is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25, and some hope the outcome will finally put a rest to the issue. "I would love to see it just finish. This has been going on for over two years now," Crescenta Valley Town Councilwoman Sharon Raghavachary said.

MONTROSE ? The fourth anniversary of the Montrose Harvest Market went to the dogs ? literally. The popular Sunday event at the Montrose Shopping Park on Honolulu Avenue, which has become a regular gathering place for the Montrose community, hosted the Glendale Humane Society's annual Wags and Whiskers Walk fundraiser over the weekend. The market's regular complement of produce, food and vendor stalls was expanded to include dog obedience training exhibits, a puppy-kissing booth and a march featuring furry canines of all colors and sizes, alongside their owners.

MONTROSE -- Frank Roberts didn't just love Montrose -- he was Montrose. And he will always be remembered that way. Roberts, known as "Mr. Montrose" because of his commitment to the town and its businesses, died Tuesday afternoon of heart failure at Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center. He was 85. "Today, as the word filtered around from store to store, as you walked along the street [of the Montrose Shopping Park], you could see in the store owners' faces that something major had happened," said John Drayman, vice president of the Montrose Shopping Park Assn.

On Sunday, Feb. 25, the Montrose Shopping Park Association will celebrate the ninty-fourth birthday of a lady near and dear to all who call the North Glendale their home, namely the town of Montrose. The Montrose Shopping Park Association is throwing a birthday party and everyone is invited. The Shopping Park Association began sponsoring the gala five years ago and decided that Montrose needed an annual day of celebration to honor the history of the town. The event was dubbed "Founders Day" each year since the merchants have invited the community to join with them in throwing the birthday bash.

The community spirit and small-town charm of the Montrose Shopping Park are especially evident during Christmas, and the Montrose-Glendale Christmas Parade kicking off the holiday season is certainly a highlight. For almost two years, as you probably know if you visit Montrose on Friday evenings, the Montrose Peace Vigil has been very much a part of the local scene. We are residents of Montrose, Glendale, La Crescenta, Tujunga and other nearby communities who, since January 2006, have gathered weekly at Honolulu Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard to make visible our opposition to the invasion and continuing occupation of Iraq.

Concerned about growth in Montrose We are Glendale residents who strongly support responsible oversight of the Montrose Shopping Park's future growth ("Shopping park zoning will remain as it is," June 8). We moved to Montrose a year ago in large part due to its charming small-town character and the unique business offerings of the shopping park. Montrose's character is strongly tied to the eclectic collection of small businesses in the shopping park. While we understand that change is inevitable, we are concerned that decades of well-managed growth could be permanently destroyed by aggressive developers with no vested long-term interest in the Montrose community.

The Memorial Day service in front of the Montrose Vietnam War Memorial on Memorial Day was personal for Councilmember Charles Beatty. He knew three of the soldiers whose names are listed on the monument, working with them at Ralphs grocery store before the Vietnam War. "I miss them," said the Crescenta Valley Town Council member. "I'm so proud of the sacrifice that they made as well as all the other men on our memorial." This was the first time in 12 years that Beatty officiated the ceremony.

Last Sunday morning's sermon at the Montrose Community Church dealt with a "code" that has sparked a religious debate not only across the country but throughout the world. The novel, "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, and just-released movie, that has rocked the world of Christianity is fiction, however, many feel it is being portrayed as reality. "The Bible is a product of man, my dear. Not of God," Sir Leigh Teabing said in chapter 55 of "The Da Vinci Code." Statements such as this are on what Rev. Bryan Griem based his Sunday sermon.
