The short-sighted attitude of NIMBY Glendale residents completely misses the big picture. The completion of the Long Beach (710) Freeway is not really an expansion, but simply a completion of a freeway that should have been finished years ago (“Freeway expansions not the answer,” July 24). This missing link creates heavily unbalanced traffic patterns on other freeways and highways, especially the Harbor (110) and the Golden State (5) Freeway (which, of course, also runs through Glendale)

Visiting the Norwegian Heritage Faire Saturday seemed like the perfect outing for Marilyn Nave, a Palmdale resident who only recently discovered she is a fourth-generation Norwegian. Weeks ago Nave, who trekked 80 miles to attend the program at Salem Lutheran Church, discovered documents showing that her great-great-great-grandparents came to this country from Norway and was elated when she found out about the festival. “I just had to come and find out more,” she said, as her 8-year-old son learned about Vikings at one of 17 tables that showcased many sectors of Scandinavian culture.

Having made the move from California to Norway, Ana Gjesdal could be considered an expert at dealing with change. From a sports standpoint, that might have helped bring out the best in her. Gjesdal was uprooted with her family to Algard, Norway, where she became a brown belt in karate. The thought of continuing a potential career in the martial arts wasn't in the works for Gjesdal when she returned to California nearly seven years later. Gjesdal sought another participation sport.
