For all of us who grumble that movies offer up little of value, "Good Night and Good Luck" is here. You may have to hunt for a theater to see it, in spite of the film grossing a staggering $38,000 per screen early on. But when you do find a screening, it will be like finding a polished diamond in a mountain of slag. To call this film a George Clooney spectacular might be misleading. We have come to expect extravagance from this "s" word, something this film is not. It is spare and smoky (both literally and figuratively)

DENNIS MOUNTJOY Thanksgiving Day is a time not only to count our blessings but also to remember and honor the source of every good gift -- "to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits." Those are the words of George Washington in the first presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation, issued in 1789. Washington was not acting on his own. He was responding to the request by Congress that he proclaim a day of "public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God."

I would like to clear the misconception by some readers of the Glendale News-Press that the Armenian Genocide was not an American experience and that the United States had no connection. Let us not forget that had it not been for the American values that were passed on to the Armenians by the American missionaries who were serving in the Anatolian region at the time, there possibly would not have been an Armenian Genocide. The Armenian Genocide revolved around the most quintessential American values, which include freedom, justice and liberty for all. Lowering the U.S. flag in Glendale should be the modicum of appreciation displayed by this nation to a people that gave their live for what this nation stands for. Pedro Zarokian Glendale

This is regarding Chuck Sambar's Oct. 23 column, "God and flag are popular once again." When was God ever banned or patriotism unacceptable? The United States has always allowed people to worship the God of their choosing and let people speak their minds about the nation. Belief in religion becomes a problem when a person or group of people promotes a concept of God as the best or only concept. Look to the Middle East or read about the Crusades for evidence of that.

The article "One nation over God?" (News-Press, Religion, Sept. 21) clearly brings up the issue of separation of church and state. Historical events that caused some of our founding fathers to migrate to America make me believe that their concept was simply that the church should not rule the state and the state not rule the church. But some people want a complete separation, which to my way of thinking is impossible. In our lives, we are regulated by many entities: the home, schools, our jobs, the city, county, state, nation, and for some, the church.

I agree with your statement, "Common sense dictates that this is not the time to divert our attention to matters that seem petty compared to the overwhelming shadow of the current tragedy." Sept. 11. I guess I'm wondering however, why you did this very thing with your Oct. 1 article. It seems to me that the answer to your question of lowering the American flag to half-staff for the loss of Armenian lives during World War I has already been answered. However, I am willing to give it another try for the sake of what you refer to as "widespread unity and camaraderie in the city."

Access to music programs in Glendale schools recently won the district recognition from a music industry group. Late last month, the National Assn. of Music Merchants designated Glendale Unified as one of about 375 school districts in the country as one of the year's “Best Communities for Music Education.” The NAMM Foundation, in a release, stated it aims to recognize districts that commit to making music a core part of its curriculum. The foundation surveyed school districts across the country to assess how school districts fund and staff their music programs, as well as evaluate how many classes and programs districts offer.

A free women-only self-defense class scheduled for this Wednesday at Glendale Community College has been postponed to an undetermined date as the city attorney continues to review the legality of excluding men from the lessons. The National Coalition for Men, a nonprofit organization based in San Diego, sent a complaint letter to city officials last month claiming two women-only self-defense classes planned for this month violate a host of federal and state civil rights laws, prompting the legal review.

By limiting free self-defense classes to women only, the city of Glendale and its Commission on the Status of Women is violating federal and state civil rights laws that protect against sexual discrimination, according to a letter sent this month to city officials by the National Coalition for Men .

In "Stand-Off at HWY #37," Vickie Ramirez's deeply felt new play presented by Native Voices at the Autry National Center, a protest against a highway slated to cut across sovereign Indian land sparks issues of identity, cultural tradition, difficult historic truths and present-day hardball politics. Bulldozers are scheduled to arrive for the construction of a public highway on land reclaimed from a Haudenosaunnee (Iroquois) reservation in upstate New York by the United States government, reportedly due to the recent unearthing of an obscure historical document, but widely assumed to be the result of yet another broken treaty.

Fourteen pedestrians - most of who were seniors and of Armenian descent - were killed in traffic-related collisions in the past five years in Glendale, a statistic that prompted a local Armenian organization to strengthen its outreach efforts. Glendale's chapter of the Armenian National Committee plans to work with city officials to visit adult day care centers in the city. The committee will also be airing its traffic safety discussion, which was held Thursday , on Armenian TV in an effort to get the word out about pedestrian safety.

While the high school boys' water polo season is long done, three area players were recently recognized for their accomplishments by being named to either the 2013 All-Southern California or All-American team or in two instances, both. La Cañada High's Peter Loakes and Glendale's Arman Momdzhyan were tabbed to both all-star lists, while Nitro Manuk Piloyan was also selected to the Southern California squad. “This was actually one of my goals heading into this year's high school season,” Momdzhyan said.

A year ago, DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg trekked to the Bay Area headquarters of YouTube to pitch an idea to his counterpart, Salar Kamangar. "I said to them, I love the things they are doing with YouTube in terms of building out the platform and encouraging user generated content," Katzenberg said. "But as a user, I felt the one thing that was very challenging is ... there's hundreds of hours of programming being uploaded every minute. It's inconsumable and unnavigable and, as a user, it was getting harder and harder for me to know what I should be watching.

There is no question that there are problems in our public schools that our politicians, teachers, and parents are not willing to address. With another school shooting in Littleton, Colo. and gun-safety laws going nowhere, the need for increased funding for national mental health services in our children's academic institutions should be a priority. Passage of the Mental Health in Schools Act of 2013 would be a step in the right direction to address this urgent issue. As reported by the National PTA, in our country alone one out of five children and adolescents suffer from mental health issues, with over 70% of them going untreated because they either cannot afford care, lack access, or do not know anyone they can turn to for help.

For quite some time, Flintridge Prep runner Alan Yoho had confessed a desire to test himself against the best talent in high school cross-country. The senior had breezed to Prep League, CIF Southern Section and CIF State Division V championships without much competition. Those circumstances certainly changed for Yoho on Saturday as he was the lone area competitor to run at the 2013 Nike Cross Nationals at Portland Meadows Course in Portland, Ore. Yet, Yoho was more than just a participant Saturday morning, as the 17-year-old Pasadena resident, who dyestat.com ranked 12th in California and 88th in the country heading into the race, turned in a stunning effort in finishing ninth overall in 15 minutes, 14 seconds.
