In the 1984 spoof rockumentary "This Is Spinal Tap," the heavy metal band gets into trouble over the potentially offensive album "Smell the Glove. " But the gantlet the band members were forced to run seems mild compared to something two major newspapers had to endure recently for failing to push a glove under readers' noses. And if you zoned out in the middle of that last sentence because you're puzzling over whether I should have used "gauntlet" instead of "gantlet," you're in the right place.

I am grateful for the News-Press letters to the editor, both that the paper provides it and that many people write in. From time to time one hears that newspapers might be on the decline, because of the Internet first and foremost. Yet the News-Press' Mailbag section is robust enough that it makes me think newspapers are still vital. What do you think, editor Dan Evans? Greg Dahlen Glendale Editor's reply: Thanks for the note, and for writing. Though newspapers do have their challenges, the News-Press is in a better position than most because of our unique connection to our community, and the letters page does reflect that.

JERRY LANE The other day I was talking with one of my exercise classmates at the YMCA. I don't remember what we were talking about, but I happened to say that I had awakened that day at about 3:30 a.m. He laughed and asked me, "Why? Do you deliver newspapers?" "No, but I used to," I told him. That got me to remembering how frustration had started me on my career as a news carrier. We had moved into a large apartment complex where we could not get our newspaper delivered.

As a teenage news junkie growing up in Yerevan, Armine Amiryan longed to be just like her idol - CNN's Anderson Cooper. At 30, Amiryan is living out her dream as a television news anchor and reporter in Glendale. Only she's doing it in her native tongue. Home to eight Armenian American television stations and no less than 10 Armenian American newspapers, the Jewel City and its environs are becoming an ever-more-central media hub for the diaspora. USArmenia TV - where Amiryan, a Burbank resident, also serves as news director - is an example of a growing Armenian media produced in the United States, one that increasingly mirrors American tastes and ideas.  MAP: Armenian media locations around Los Angeles   With around-the-clock sitcom, reality and broadcast news shows supported by advertising sales, the USArmenia model differs from many older Armenian American media outlets, many of which are closely tied to political parties or interest groups.

When I first became the adviser to Hoover High School's newspaper, I had a foremost goal: for the students to produce the best high school newspaper in the country. Well, 20 plus years later, I am extremely proud to report that the Tornado Times has just been nominated for a Pacemaker award by the National Scholastic Press Association. That's akin to an Oscar in the high school newspaper world. The winners will be announced at a national convention in November. Allow me to gush over all the journalism students I have had the privilege to work with during the past couple of decades.

Great newspaper stories - like the shocking L.A. County tax scandal involving Assessor John Noguez - usually don't come from attending government meetings or going to press conferences. The tip that ignites a reporter's passion almost always comes in a telephone call, as it did last December for Randy Economy, investigative reporter for the Los Cerritos Community Newspaper, a 55,000-circulation weekly with a staff of five, including owner-publisher Brian Hews. What happened over the next eight months shows just how important professional news media still are in the age of the blogosphere - even small community and weekly newspapers - at a time when the total audience for local TV news and large daily newspapers is smaller than what the No. 1 station and dominant paper in a market used to attract.

Dan Suttles. “He's getting more and more bold,” Suttles said, adding that when officers arrived on the scene both times, the bear was gone.

In their response to a lawsuit filed by the Burbank Leader to obtain the amount of bonuses paid to individual public employees, city attorneys argued in a legal filing that releasing the information was tantamount to revealing private performance evaluations that would erode workplace morale. Burbank Senior Assistant City Atty. Juli Scott dismissed the arguments and legal precedent cited by Karlene W. Goller — an attorney for the Leader’s parent company, the Los Angeles Times — and Karl Olson of the San Francisco-based law firm Ram & Olson.

The Burbank Leader on Friday filed a lawsuit against the city of Burbank for refusing to disclose detailed information about millions of dollars in merit-based bonuses paid to employees during the past three years. Burbank officials initially provided a lump sum amount for fiscal year 2009-10, broken down by each employee or bargaining group that totaled $1 million in bonuses out of a budgeted $1.87 million. Glendale paid out roughly $1 million in bonuses to mid-level department managers and their executives between 1999 and 2008 and made the per-employee information available on its website.
