GLENDALE — Beeline buses are now for protection, as well as travel. In conjunction with efforts from the Salvation Army, city buses have now become part of the national "Safe Place" program — a youth outreach program that provides children and teenagers ages 10 to 17 with fast responses and support for their problems. "Safe Place is a program that gives kids that are in distress or trying to escape a violent environment a place to go," said Capt. Barbara Sloan of the Glendale Salvation Army.

CHARLES J. UNGER I hope the American Automobile Assn. gets hit hard in this case. When one calls AAA, the hope is that they will come and help, and I imagine that is why we pay our $35-per-year dues. This is the story of a woman who never got the help she both wanted and needed and paid the ultimate price. On July 11, 1999, Melissa Gosule, a 27-year-old elementary school teacher, got into her 1986 Pontiac, only to find that the car would not start.

This is going to be a busy weekend for the Valley. Memorial Day services abound and the La Cañada Chamber of Commerce's Fiesta Days offers plenty to do, including music, barbecues and fireworks. Also happening this weekend is the prom for Crescenta Valley High School seniors. CV will be holding their event on Saturday evening, May 26 at the Globe Theatre at nearby Universal Studios. Without a doubt, prom is a highlight for many of the students. Unfortunately, this is also a perilous time as well.

About two dozen Glendale High School students and teachers were taking their seats Friday to protest prejudice and harassment of all types, when a student a few yards away repeatedly yelled a derogatory term for homosexuals. The incident occurred as students handed out small notices that said they muted themselves to represent the unheard victims of discrimination and name-calling as part of the national Day of Silence. Participating students kept silent all day and wrote their responses to questions.

For me, this Memorial Day weekend started with my first experience attending Prom Plus. This event began because of a tragic loss of life, but has turned into a real celebration of life and growing up. I knew the event was important for the safety of our children. Most teenagers feel immortal, however on prom night that intensifies because the world is theirs. They are excited about graduation, moving on to the next step in their life and loving being young. With all of this, they forget that there is danger out there, either from being on the road or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In 1988, Bridget Fogg had lost everything. She couldn’t keep a job and had no money for her rental room. She owed it to alcoholism. She asked her father to take her in. Instead, he gave her $100 and told her to go to a women’s recovery home. Flipping through the phone book she found two listings and decided to try Vesper House. Twenty-one years later, she’s still sober. “Vesper House saved my life,” she said. “I couldn’t stop drinking on my own. I was trapped.

Recent church shootings have sparked discussion among various church officials on the possible need to carry weapons to religious services. The premise behind this is that churches are no longer seen as immune from violence as they once were. Do you believe that people should carry guns in church for protection or do you believe officials are overexagerrating when they say churches are no longer safe? Do you think churches have done enough to try to curb violence? What do you believe churches should do?

PATH Achieve Glendale, the city’s largest homeless services provider, had tentatively agreed to take over and modify the program, but the nonprofit’s board of directors recently backed out of the deal, also citing financial constraints.
