Gary Moskowitz Students walking to school or being dropped off by their parents along Glenwood Road on Tuesday morning were greeted by an anonymous group of pro-life demonstrators carrying large posters depicting bloody, aborted fetuses. The sight of 10 pro-life demonstrators standing on the street that borders Keppel Elementary, Toll Middle and Hoover High schools -- and the 10-by-4-foot posters of aborted babies they held up high -- were cause for anger and concern by parents, students and school administrators.

Ben Godar Several copies of a highly sought-after poster commemorating the firefighters who perished during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was presented Friday to the Glendale Fire Department by none other than the artist himself. The poster, which features the Firefighters Angel and the names of all the fire personnel who lost their lives, has been displayed at all the fire stations in New York City. Keith Piaseczny, the artist who created the image, was in his Greenwich Village apartment when he heard the first plane roar down 5th Avenue.

Hoover High School students posted messages like “I pledge to non-violence,” “Be a pacifist. It’s in our hands” and “Peace is Sexy” on two giant posters hanging in the school’s cafeteria Thursday as part of Yellow Ribbon Week, a violence-prevention initiative being recognized around the Glendale Unified School District. Members of the school’s student government painted peace signs on two large posters and asked students to decorate the posters by taping a message of nonviolence on pieces of yellow paper cut in the shape of a hand.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Glendale resident A.J. Zakarian has 4,000 posters emblazoned with phrases like "Still waiting for a fair trial" and "Complete the Ottoman Empire history, recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915" stored in canisters at his house. The posters were designed by winners of an international Armenian Genocide poster contest that Zakarian hosted this year to commemorate the tragedy's 87th anniversary Wednesday. "I definitely feel that these posters will make an impact and will make people more aware and more compassionate for what happened," Zakarian, 28, said.

At a gallery off Brand Boulevard on Saturday, art lovers from across the country had the chance to meet someone whose work was near and dear to their heart. Painter David Willardson, a Glendale resident of 25 years, is the man behind Walt Disney Corp.’s animated movie posters — films like “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin,” whose imagery has become almost as ubiquitous as the Mickey Mouse ears themselves. After 17 years of doing movie posters for Disney, Willardson started putting those same icons and images on the canvas as fine art, with a looser, more active painting style.

Social-studies students at Glendale High School this week are debating the benefits and drawbacks to the war in Iraq, in what Co-principal Lou Stewart calls a "free exchange of ideas in an educational context." Four teachers and roughly 500 students have been researching the war, and speaking in class about the benefits and drawbacks. Students have created posters with slogans like "War is not the answer," "Stop Saddam," "Ignorance takes its toll" and "We should not wait for the war to come to us."

Haight-Ashbury, rock ’n’ roll and mind-altering drugs gave rise to an unusual burst of creativity that married type designs, images and explosive color on esoteric psychedelic posters. Artists embedded in the San Francisco hippie culture designed pulsating patterns and animated text to promote integrated music, free love and LSD. David Edward Byrd jumped into this scene in Manhattan around 1968 and was catalyzed by the West Coast movement. He designed graphic art posters for rock ’n’ roll icons and events, Broadway plays, movies and TV. He shadowed the entertainment industry for decades as its link to the public with images that reached out and grabbed the viewer by the eyeballs to drag them in and ignite imaginations.

Now that the holidays are behind us (excuse me as I wipe my brow in relief), I have to make mention of something that I found really irritating. Seeing how many people prefer to use the shops in the foothill area, and imagining how much revenue is earned by those shops over the holidays by our residents, I find it very distasteful that these same shops won't support local organizations by putting up posters, fliers or notices of local events. For example, when the high school puts on a production, it's surprising how many stores and shops won't allow the kids to put up a little 8 ½ by 11 flier advertising the production.

Gary Moskowitz Had he been a shoemaker in America circa 1800, Stephen Buckley thinks he would have voted for Thomas Jefferson for president. Stephen and about 150 other Rosemont Middle School eighth-graders recreated America's 1800 presidential election campaign on Thursday and asked the question, "Who deserves your vote?" Students took turns campaigning in favor of Federalist Party candidate John Adams or Democratic- Republican Party candidate Thomas Jefferson during a mock election at the school.

Adam Schiff (D-Glendale)

Cemeteries aren't usually thought of as hotbeds of activity, but last Saturday night at the Forest Lawn Museum, atop the memorial park's Glendale grounds, proved the exception. As a blues band blared and colored lights splashed off the white walls of an adjacent chapel, several hundred guests ate, drank, danced and kibitzed in the museum plaza - all in the name of art. The occasion was "Drew & Bob: Masters of the Movies," the latest exhibit in the museum's series of open-to-the-public cultural events.

The Northwest Glendale Lions Club kept spirits bright at the annual Christmas luncheon. Members gathered at the Foothill Service Club for the Blind rather than the usual meeting place - Shaker's restaurant. Highlights included the presentation of a $50 check to “Peace Poster” contest winner David Ramazyan. The fifth-grader at Columbus Elementary School titled his poster “Mother Nature.” Members and guests were also entertained by a 70-student choir from Columbus Elementary School.

Editor's note: While Patrick Caneday takes some time off, we're running some of his choices for re-publication. This column was first published May 15, 2010. Each Saturday morning I open the local newspaper and am shocked to see my scraggly, smirking face looking back at me from this page. I'd expect it in a police report about a stay-at-home writer-father arrested for screaming at motorists driving too fast on his quiet residential street. It's a picture I'm told makes me look both older and younger than I really am. Some say it doesn't do me justice, yet most often people seem a little disappointed when they meet me in person.

Six-year-old Marion Govednik used a blue marker to meticulously draw ice on her “All About Me” poster, which she had been constructing all week in preparation for her kindergarten graduation. Marion and her 17 other Holy Redeemer School classmates were given the task of completing their posters before their June 9 graduation, so their parents could see what they learned about themselves this school year. Kindergarten teacher Evelyn Cortes helped Marion and other students spell out challenging words, such as veterinarian, Ireland and Dodger Stadium, on a white erase board, so they could finish the poster.

MONTROSE — Vandals defaced political signs for presidential candidate Barack Obama in the Sparr Heights neighborhood over the weekend, changing the B in his last name to an S in reference to Al Qaeda terrorist Osama bin Laden. Residents awoke Saturday morning in the 3400 block of Rosemary Avenue and noticed the political signs had been altered by vandals who glued white, plastic pieces with the stenciled black letter S over the B, according to a Glendale Police Department report.
