The student infirmary at GAR Services has been renovated for the first time since 1986. Formerly known as the Glendale Assn. for the Retarded, GAR Services offers job placement and training to nearly 80 adults with developmental disabilities. The infirmary equips GAR’s clients with a place to rest or tend to any medical needs. “It’s the most utilized room,” said Salpi Kerkyasharian, a multi-cultural counselor for the nonprofit. “We have individuals who have seizures, cerebral palsy, trips, falls — injuries are common.” Kerkyasharian was one of several members of Leadership Glendale, a group of local business and civic leaders sponsored by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, who took on the project.

Josh Kleinbaum Rick Caruso has made a living building shopping destinations in Southern California such as the Grove, the Encino Marketplace and the Promenade at Westlake.

OK, some poor decisions may have been made in the past by Glendale city government regarding city employee pensions. Nevertheless, money to balance the city's general fund budget would be in very short supply even if those decisions had never been made. The basic cause of our city's current financial problems is Prop. 13 and the other state laws that have hamstrung our city's ability to raise, through taxation and fees, sufficient revenue to adequately protect us and to cover the infrastructure issues that face any city of Glendale's size.

I read with much sadness last week the article by City Editor Jason Wells on the upcoming departure of Camille Levee, the director of Glendale Healthy Kids, before the end of this month. I can't top the descriptive adjectives used in that article to describe the goals and achievements except to say that we're losing not only an outstanding director, but, more so, a beautiful “mom” that this director has proven to be during her tenure at Healthy Kids. I admire her gifts of observation and in paying special attention to detail, as with her latest fund-raising effort, the “Taste of Downtown Glendale.” Levee works well with people, especially with parents of kids of special needs.

Dear Frank, It pains me to write this. Last year I wrote to you, pleading with you to give us back our Los Angeles Dodgers and show yourself out of town. On behalf of all Angelenos who bleed Dodger blue, I implored you to do what you knew in your money-loving, American Express Black Card, bankrupt heart was best, and make a few hundred million dollars for yourself and your ex-wife by selling our team. And this week, you did it.* So here's the hard part. (deep breath)
