Gary Moskowitz A six-month tour of duty in Djbouti, Africa with a U.S. Marine expeditionary unit left Chad Pluimer feeling grateful for what he has in the United States. The 2001 Crescenta Valley High School graduate was one of 33 members of the Armed Forces honored Saturday at an Arbor Day celebration hosted by the Crescenta Valley Town Council and the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. Pluimer was one of a few soldiers who could attend the event.

Amber Willard NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Helping to keep the city pretty paid off Tuesday for some local businesses. The businesses, which had planted flowers and other landscaping around their properties, received a big "thank you" from Glendale Beautiful -- a nonprofit citizens group that works to keep and establish "green" areas in the city. "We went all over the city, driving around and taking pictures," said Shirley Darling, the group's awards committee chairwoman, of how candidates were selected.

A couple of weeks ago I was on Larry Zarian's TV show, where we discussed a variety of topics ranging from assimilation to domestic violence. At the end of the show, a viewer asked whether I was proud to be Armenian. The question could have as easily been about being American. Either way, my response would've been an instinctive "Yes!" After the show, I felt a bit irritated with myself. I don't know if readers share my sentiment, but it seems answers to many questions become more complicated as we get older.

Responding to the Aug. 11 editorial “Neighborly spirit thrived at Night Out,” I’d like to add my two cents. I grew up in a Southern California community that severely lacked community pride. As a result we suffered with gangs, graffiti, crime and a horrible sense of indifference and apathy. There were very few youth organizations or city-wide events to attend. Neighbors argued, weekends were uneventful and the sound of sirens frequently filled the air. When my wife and I moved to Glendale nearly 14 years ago we found an abundance of civic and religious organizations, a keen sense of history and culture, and even the Montrose Christmas parade!

Pride of ownership feeds on itself, and the benefits of this vested interest extend to the neighborhood and community, making that community a desirable place in which to live and work. A sense of belonging translates into a positive citizenry. Given Glendale's ever-increasing population, the city needs to provide more housing. John Gregg, president of Gregg's Artistic Homes, is willing to build a housing development on land he owns, Oakmont View V. These would be high-quality homes with a proven record in Glendale and will help alleviate some of the need that exists.

As a former Crescenta Valley High School JROTC cadet, I have to say that your article March 28 both shocked and saddened me. I am saddened and concerned that enrollment in the ROTC has gotten so low to the point that the brass at Glendale Unified is threatening to shut it down. The four years that I spend in ROTC were the most rewarding if not the most intense of my life. I felt pride in wearing the uniform every Tuesday (or Wednesday). I felt pride in raising our nation's flag during our formal flag-raising ceremonies.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Running will take place for at least the first 10 minutes of every practice conducted by the Hoover High girls' basketball squad. It's designed so that the Tornadoes can try to perfect their fastbreak drills and use that to their advantage come game time. Hoover used its conditioning often Wednesday night to earn a 45-33 Pacific League victory against visiting Burbank. The Tornadoes (10-6, 2-3 in league) scored 14 fastbreak points on the way to their second straight league win. Hoover senior guard/forward Annette Arzoo finished with a team-high 18 points, including eight on fastbreak baskets.

Group offers chance to clean up city I would like to commend William Landman for his letter recognizing the need for volunteers to help keep our community clean (“Littering speaks volumes about city,” Aug. 27). The Committee for a Clean & Beautiful Glendale is committed to maintaining a healthy, safe, clean community. As such, we partner with the city of Glendale to operate an “Adopt-a-Block” program, similar to Landman’s proposal. Our 50 active groups regularly remove litter and graffiti with supplies donated from our national, state and local sponsors (Keep America Beautiful, Keep California Beautiful, and J’s Maintenance)

This is the third in a series of articles examining the experiences of local fighters and coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter,” whether in past seasons or the current. The current season, “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” airs Wednesdays on Fox Sports 1, featuring Glendale-trained champion Ronda Rousey. On a rare night in which his training schedule doesn't conflict and Sevak Magakian finds himself in front of the television, he'll tune into “The Ultimate Fighter.” In the fall of 2010, Glendale's Magakian was on the other side of the small screen, though, as part of the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” which pitted rivals Georges St. Pierre, still the Ultimate Fighting Championships welterweight champion, and then-challenger Josh Koscheck as opposing coaches.

The Los Angeles Kings have won their first NHL Championship after 45 years of being in existence. While not a rabid fan, I have followed the Kings all of my life. I would listen to the games on radio with Bob Miller announcing them (he still does).  We long-time Angelenos are extremely fortunate (and spoiled) to have had the best basketball announcer of all time, Chick Hearn, the best baseball announcer, Vin Scully, and Miller. Both Chickie Baby and Vinnie have enjoyed several championships; now Bob gets to join the club.

While technically a prize up for grabs among seven squads, the Pacific League boys' water polo title turned out to be a two-team race between archrivals Glendale High and Hoover. The Nitros and Tornadoes' two exciting head-to-head meetings directly decided the league championship, with Glendale prevailing in both to finish unbeaten in league. When the league's seven coaches recently convened to assemble the all-league team, Glendale landed five players on the list, including three first-teamers, and saw Coach Forest Holbrook receive his first Coach of the Year nod. Second-place Hoover got its share of recognition, as well, with standout senior utility Hakop Kaplanyan garnering his second straight Pacific League Player of the Year honor to lead a league-best six total selections for his team.

Wins have been hard to come by this season for the Glendale High and Hoover football teams. Still, if there's one game that will always have plenty of meaning, it's the annual "Battle for the Victory Bell. " The rivalry between the Nitros and Tornadoes dates back to 1930. Plenty of high-caliber players have been a part of one of the longest-standing rivalries in the state before going on to enjoy respectable collegiate and professional careers. The rivalry's 83rd installment will take place at 7 p.m. today at Glendale High's Moyse Field and is expected to draw the biggest crowd of the season for the Pacific League contest.

Marine Corps recruiters at the San Gabriel Valley Pride event at Pasadena City College on Saturday didn't care whether the young men who lined up to test their strength were gay or straight. The Marines just wanted to see some pull-ups done properly: Place hands about shoulder width apart, palms facing away; pull upward until chin is over the bar and then slowly return to the hanging position. Repeat until the feet feel like concrete blocks and the biceps like rubber bands about to snap.

About halfway through her conversation with the woman next to her, I finally take notice of the logo emblazoned on the red wool of her jacket. For a sunny Saturday, she is sure dressed warm for the parade. “Probably going to be the coldest one on record for sure,” someone tweeted Saturday morning. Sometimes I forget where I am. Ron Howard leads the parade not far from where I stood, and the woman shifts forward in her lawn chair to get a better view. She clutches a child and they point down Olive Avenue toward the procession — giant letters spelling B-U-R-B-A-N-K are pushed along by military service members who could be in a lot of other places this day, but smile at their fortune to brave a slight chill.

As looting began last week amid major political protests in several Egyptian cities, and the police disappeared from the streets, Ahmed Alfi started to look for a way out of the country. The 54-year-old venture capitalist, who lived in La Cañada Flintridge for 36 years before moving to Cairo five years ago, chartered a plane scheduled to depart Friday. He never made it to the airport. “The tear gas was so bad you couldn’t even drive through it,” Alfi said. He tried again Saturday, leaving his home at dawn, beating the crowds and eventually securing a seat on a flight to London.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — With Glendale High on a bit of a roll of late and Hoover one game removed from an embarrassing defeat in which the wheels fell clean off, Tuesday's Pacific League boys' soccer rivalry game started off very much along those same lines. The Nitros, who in the past week beat Muir and rallied to tie Crescenta Valley at a time when each of those squads was atop the league standings, had gotten a three-goal jump on the Tornadoes by the early stages of the second half at Moyse Field.

For most computer users, a drop in system efficiency generally happens when the machine has been used for months or years. Disk fragmentation occurs. The bits of data on a hard drive can become disorganized, forcing the drive to work harder to find the information the user is looking for. This overheats the drive, consumes more electricity and decreases productivity. For the people at Burbank-based Diskeeper Corporation, which is celebrating its 30th year in business, defragmented drives are the cornerstone of their business.
