Earlier this month comments were made by Steven Gallegos and Michael Olivares, Glendale Adventist Medical Center tobacco outreach workers, to the Glendale City Council and to the News-Press that are uncharacteristic of our approach to promoting community health. These outreach workers were not authorized to make these comments and they were not speaking on behalf of the hospital. In fact, our Tobacco Control Program team regards city leaders as key partners in the process of improving the health of the community.

Alex Coolman THORNYCROFT -- The city is planning a major effort in the months ahead to make sure that users of the recently opened cold weather shelter at the National Guard Armory get along with the surrounding community. More than $30,000 would be directed at an effort both to beef up security and to increase outreach in the area of the Colorado Street facility under a proposal to be considered today by the Housing Authority. Stacy Rowe, a senior administrative analyst for the Community Development and Housing Department, said the move is a response to problems that occurred in years past when the shelter opened.

GLENDALE — A domestic violence outreach program at the Glendale YWCA tailored to reach Armenian women will debut this summer, coordinators said. The new program is in the final stages of being translated into Armenian as the organization looks to reach what has so far been a "closed system" of women, said Kathie Mathis, the program's author and director of domestic violence programs at the YWCA. The program — called "Louys," Armenian for "light" — will train Armenian-English bilingual women in how to recognize domestic abuse among their peers, and what to do once it's identified.

A Noise Within's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" that we saw last night is another outstanding production by an outstanding theater company. Along with many others, I suspect, I was both disappointed and a bit miffed when it seemed to abruptly abandon Glendale. But we should put such feelings aside and welcome it back to Glendale because such a talented group would be a great community asset for both its remarkable entertainment and its community outreach. I certainly hope the city along with other community leaders will do all in their power to get A Noise Within back to Glendale.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- The city's winter homeless shelter, which has had an uneasy relationship with its neighbors, will remain in its Colorado Street location at the National Guard Armory if the Housing Authority follows staff recommendations today. The shelter, which provides a cold-weather refuge for those who have nowhere else to go, has been housed in the Armory since 1993. But the location -- just across Colorado Street from the Adult Recreation Center and close to the Central Library and downtown shops -- has been controversial.
