Please take a few moments out of your busy day to realize how precious life is and say a prayer for those who were lost in the 9/11 tragedy. Chamber members: Do you have something special going on in your business that you want the community to know about? If yes, then e-mail or call me by noon on Mondays and I will include it in the column of that week. How’s that for advertising? The Chamber is here to help you and the more your name is out there, the better it is for you. This Saturday is the third annual Artwalk on the beautiful sidewalks of Honolulu Avenue; make sure you check it out. Our kick off mixer for Oktoberfest will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 1 at Citibank; hope you can make it!

Can you recall the last time you felt anxious? How did you experience it? Did you feel the anxiety in your body; racing heart, tingling in your arms?

It can be genetic, brought on by circumstances beyond our control, or can be present because of underlying stress that we have placed upon our lives ? which affects our lifestyle and eventually our bodies and minds.

This results in three diesel-guzzling, exhaust belching Allied Waste behemoths rumbling through our neighborhood each trash day. How much extra fuel is burned by having three trucks on every street, every trash day, every week?

The cellular giant T-Mobile is reportedly seeking to build a 100-foot-tall cell phone tower in a graveyard. The cemetery’s owner, the Archdiocese of Boston, has approved the plan and agreed to lease the spot to T-Mobile. The proposal to build the tower has raised the ire of neighbors and guardians of people buried there, who say such a tower would violate the memories of people buried there. What do you think?   Profiting from the construction of a cell phone tower in a graveyard dishonors those buried there and thus it is an insult to their surviving family members.

Verdugo Valley Baptist’s second year Verdugo Valley Baptist Church has planned a celebration at 10:30 a.m. on April 6 for its second anniversary. The service will include testimonials, special music and Bible preaching. After the service, the congregation will travel to Lower Scholl Canyon Park for an old-fashioned potluck Baptist-style luncheon followed by games. Following this fellowship, Pastor Jesse Johnson will preside over an early evening Sunday service as Verdugo Valley Baptist Church contemplates its future.

A peace pole with a white dove perched on top stood on the front lawn of Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church on Sunday as dozens of parishioners gathered to pray and dedicate the symbol of unity. Joining the Methodist church were members from the Korean congregation of the Hansarang United Methodist Church and parishioners from Christ Armenian Church. ?We wanted to have this symbolic pole,? said the Rev. Hendrik Shanazari of Christ Armenian Church. ?It?s a peace pole.
