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.

On Dec. 10 the Glendale City Council approved spending about $80,000 to hire Cerrell Associates to conduct a public outreach program . A program to determine the likelihood of voters supporting a June 2014 revenue-generating ballot measure. In plain English, the council is using taxpayers' money to hire Cerrell Associates to influence and convince us to vote for higher taxes. If our city council were good stewards of the city finances, an outside company with a 95% success rate would not be looking for ways to pick the pockets of the public.

Glendale officials want to float a new tax on an upcoming ballot, but first they plan to ask a public outreach consultant to gauge residents' support on the possible measure. On Tuesday, the City Council approved with a 3-2 vote to move forward with the hiring process for a consultant, which is anticipated to cost around $87,000. POLL: Should Glendale add a tax measure to the June 2014 ballot? Councilmen Frank Quintero and Zareh Sinanyan said they couldn't support even opening the door to a new tax because electricity rate increases approved in August will ratchet up rates for residential customers by a compounded 29% over the next five years.

Glendale officials will host two public meetings to make sure the community knows everything there is to know about a planned “road diet” in Montrose that will test the viability of dedicated bike lanes on Honolulu Avenue. The road diet will essentially cut two lanes out of the four-lane Honolulu Avenue between Ramsdell and Orangedale avenues and replace them with a designated bicycle lane in each direction. As Honolulu Avenue gets closer to the Montrose Shopping Park, the road is too narrow for a bike lane, so it will instead get street signs denoting that bicyclists and cars must share the road.
