Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday signed a bill into law that aims to cut down on the sale of contaminated meat, elating human officials and the bill’s author — Assemblyman Paul Krekorian. Krekorian proposed the bill after a Humane Society video surfaced in January showing workers at a Chino-based slaughterhouse using forklifts to pick up and roll animals too weak to stand and forcing sick or weak cows to stand by repeatedly prodding them with sharp electric volts.

The recent letters by Ergun Kirlikovali, Albert Eryakub and others regarding the Armenian genocide are nothing but a smoke screen to confuse your readers. The facts speak louder than their words. The hard evidence of the Armenian Genocide is beyond repute. It is very well documented in British, German, Austrian, French and U.S. and, not to mention, Turkish government archives. Winston Churchill called it a holocaust. The founder of modern Turkey, Kemal Ataturk, said on April 24, 1920 to the Swiss journalist Emile Hilderbrand -- published in the Los Angeles Examiner on Aug. 1, 1926 -- "The World War I massacres against the Armenians were a shameful act FAZAHAT, this leftovers from the former Young Turk party who should have been made accountable for the lives of millions of our Christian subjects who were ruthlessly driven en masse from their homes and massacred."

My late grandmother used to say that hard work is something that is instilled in someone from birth. Whenever she would give advice, she would say be grateful that you have a job and work hard, because a hard worker always learns a new skill. Although my grandparents didn't have the opportunity to pursue careers, they both worked hard for their family. My grandmother worked in the administrative field while my grandfather, I was told, did many things, from working in a slaughterhouse to retail and many other jobs.

Outraged over cuts to New Horizons Regarding the Community Commentary on Feb. 8, ?Grant funds forced to be spread thin,? Jan. 31,? I am outraged at the fact that the Community Development Block Grant Committee recommended cutting the funding for New Horizons Family Center. It is a great facility. As a working parent of two young kids, this has helped me and my children a great deal as far as their education. And just all over a terrific program. ALICE SAHAKIAN Glendale ?
