Ron Kaye's July 21 column, “ Restructuring the GWP ,” serves as another supportive voice for the city's bad policy presented under the guise of being balanced. Electricity rates should have gone down nearly every year for the past four years, but they went down only the year before the last election. Glendale's electric power comes from purchased electricity and from its own gas-powered generators. According to the city's financial reports, GWP customers cut electric usage by nearly 10% so the GWP was less dependent on wholesale purchases from the grid.

Alex Coolman LYNWOOD -- When Dennis O'Neil says he has a million people to see, that's exactly what he means. O'Neil, who grew up in La Crescenta, recently was appointed the new auxiliary bishop for the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Bernardino. In that role, he will be responsible for meeting with the parishes of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, a 27,000-square-mile territory that's home to about a million Catholics. "It's really been undergoing tremendous growth in recent years," O'Neil said.

After Billie Burke, best known for her portrayal of Glinda the Good Witch in the 1939 version of “The Wizard of Oz," left the Emerald City, she found herself past the yellow brick road of Hollywood and behind the gates of the Rockhaven Sanitarium in Glendale. Located on Honolulu Avenue, the sanitarium stands as a treasured site of historic Glendale, an intimate and aging symbol of a time when the valley was dispersed with resting and recovery homes due to its clean air quality. Patricia Traviss, the granddaughter of Rockhaven's founder, Agnes Mary Richards, sold the site in 2001 to the Ararat Home of Los Angeles, Inc., which provides nursing homes and care for elderly Armenians in Southern California.

I attended the Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council meeting Jan. 14 regarding the charter amendments on the upcoming April 2 Glendale ballot. The main argument for keeping the city treasurer an elected office is that important positions like city council and congressional representatives are elected, and that someone who must stand for election is more answerable to the people. However, I see a big difference between policymaking bodies such as those and a professional position such as city treasurer.

It's been a while since the Glendale Community College football has had its head above water and it's a feeling the Vaqueros don't want to let go of any time soon. Not only over .500 for the first time since October of 2009, but batting 1.000 after opening the season with a 27-10 road win over El Camino Compton College on Saturday, the Vaqueros are well ahead of pace from the last two 1-9 seasons that saw the team go winless until well into its Pacific Conference American Division schedule.
