The fall social season has yet to start, but surely a reception of wine and spirits, hors d'oeuvres and stuffed grape leaves. But this party was for rescued pets and their owners at Pet Rush in Kenneth Village. On Thursday, all the elements of the most swish of receptions were there — adult beverages, balloons and the attendance of our city fathers. Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian and City Councilman Dave Weaver added gravitas. Yapping dogs and their chatty owners provided the late-afternoon ambiance.

In what authorities are calling an execution, Glendale resident Sarkis Antonyan, 27, was shot multiple times Sept. 14 inside the former Pets R Us at 409 W.

BURBANK -- Almost two months after the coldblooded slaying of businessman Sarkis Antonyan in his Burbank pet shop, authorities have yet to name a suspect. "We're getting closer," said Burbank Police Lt. Don Brown. "We're slowly trying to narrow the field down to a certain individual or individuals." In what police have called an execution-style slaying, Antonyan, 27, of Glendale was gunned down Sept. 14 inside his Pets R Us store at 409 W. Victory Blvd.

Tim Willert The Glendale Humane Society might have to find a new venue for its monthly pet adoption events, after the organization was turned away at the Glendale PETCO store. Betty Evans, a shelter board member who regularly participates in the adoption events, brought 11 dogs and cats Sunday to the store at 231 Glendale Ave., but was told by a store employee that the organization was not welcome anymore. "She said, 'You're no longer allowed to bring animals here'," Evans said Wednesday.

For thousands of rabbits each year, Easter Sunday is the ultimate bad hare day. Many well-meaning people surprise their children with pet store rabbits. But rabbits, with a 10-year life span, are a big responsibility and should never be given as a "gift." Most Easter bunnies never see their first birthday. Once the novelty wears off and the child loses interest, bunnies are dumped in parks or in streets where, having no survival skills, they suffer and die. The lucky ones find their way to animal shelters, where many are euthanized.

In his letter published in the Forum on Nov. 20, Wilhelm I. Vargas, president of the Board of Directors of the Glendale Humane Society, states that current individuals associated with the Glendale Humane Society cannot be "shackled" into defending "purported past events they had nothing to do with." According to Mr. Vargas' letter, the majority of the current board members began serving in or about early 2002. Since this is the case, it is reasonable to suggest that the current board members have served in an advisory capacity for the past six to eight months.

In 2006, a British comedian named Dave Gorman decided to take a coast-to-coast road trip through 17 states to see if it was possible to travel across the United States without using a corporate-owned or chain business throughout his entire journey. That means hotels, restaurants and the most challenging category - gas stations. The road trip, which Gorman began in Coronado, Calif. and ended in Savannah, Ga., became a documentary titled “America, Unchained,” a search to find and sustain himself on the places that defined the American entrepreneurial spirit, but that were almost on the verge of completely disappearing.

Editor's Note: Numerous instances of plagiarism have been discovered in Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column, which ran in the News- Press from September 2003 to September 2011. In those columns where plagiarism has been found, a For the Record specifying the details will be appended to the piece. I told this story 10 years ago in this space and thought it might play well again a few days before Easter. I'd like to tell the story of two cute little bunnies. I was reminded of them recently while strolling through the Glendale Galleria, watching a young family pausing in front of the pet store where a bunny bin is strategically placed to entice little children and entrap parents connected to children.

A happy belated birthday to Montrose, my home town for the last 55 years. Our family moved here in 1951, and except for a few years away at college, and about 10 living in Glendale, Montrose has been my home. It is Mayberry, Bedford Falls, River City (Who can identify all three?) and anytown USA that takes pride in its history and is determined to preserve what is worth preserving. There have been changes to our town over the years, no doubt, but much has stayed the same, and that is a balance that appeals to me. Who remembers Indian Springs?

DAN KIMBER A friend of mine who has read my offerings to this newspaper sent me a two-word e-mail: "Lighten up." So, in deference to his good taste, I'd like to tell the story of two cute little bunnies. I was reminded of them recently while strolling through the Galleria, watching a young family pausing in front of the pet store. A bunny bin is strategically placed there to entice little children and entrap parents connected to children. Years ago, I was frequently nudged to this place to listen to the deepest yearnings of my deprived children.
