Rerouted high-voltage cables and a backup transformer set to be installed this weekend at Grayson power plant should keep the lights on without interruption, said Ramon Abueg, the city's electrical services administrator.

Glendale voters hit the polls Tuesday to weigh in on presidential nominees, decide the fate of seven state ballot measures and, as many said, to just plain do their civic duty. Immigration was on the tip of Democrats’ and Republicans’ tongues, as was the war in Iraq and the slumping economy. Some were quick to tout, or denounce, state referendums to extend term limits and expand American Indian casinos. State officials were predicting record turnout in the Super Tuesday election, but voter turnout was reportedly mixed at different polling places throughout the city.

Destroying course would be a shame My whole family learned to play golf at Verdugo Hills Golf Course, and continues to do so ("Group hopes to buy public golf course," March 27). I am currently in the golf club at Verdugo, and it would be a shame to have the developer destroy such a wonderful surrounding. This is a golf course that is enjoyed by the public, and should remain to be enjoyed by the public. There are enough homes and condos around the area, and it will be destroying habitat for animals that live around those hills.

Mismanagement of elections and voter fraud cast a pall over one of the cornerstones of democracy — each citizen's right to vote for the candidate for public office of his or her choice. Glendale elected a new city clerk, Ardashes Kassakhian, in the last municipal election, who has earnestly stated his conviction to make sure that every citizen has the opportunity to vote — an opportunity that was not, in his opinion, afforded to all citizens in the past. Kassahkian's goal is laudable and supported by the Glendale Democratic Club.
