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!

This despite his admission that he has not watched television in more than nine years. And much like the reviewer who hasn't read the book or critic who hasn't seen the play, Smith's views are filled with misperceptions, erroneous notions and false assertions. The most stunning to me was his claim that KOCE is financially upside down and that the station belongs to the Coast Community College District.
