It’s been four years since the public learned of the gruesome state of Grand View Memorial Park. Improperly stored remains, intermixed burials and general disrepair were just a few of the headline-grabbing revelations in 2005 that launched a wave of lawsuits. Now it appears an end to the legal morass is in sight. A $3.8-million settlement agreement is likely to be approved by a Superior Court judge, opening the way for a restoration of the cemetery and, finally, peace of mind for families with loved ones buried there.

CITY HALL — A group of stakeholders charged with formulating recommendations for the future of development in the north Glendale annex didn’t reach a consensus, but they all agreed on the need for clearer design standards. “Everyone wants to see standards that are more predictable,” said Laura Stotler, a principal planner with the city who is oversaw the 34-member North Glendale Community Plan Advisory Committee, which spent months discussing the area’s most contentious issues, including development along Foothill Boulevard and potential height limits.

MONTROSE — A week after more than 100 community stakeholders met in Sparr Heights to hash out a vision for the future of the Montrose Shopping Park, city planning officials are filtering through notes on competing interests to determine whether the city can be an instrument to build that vision. “The competing interests are the same competing interests that you find in all of the neighborhood business districts throughout the country, and those essentially boil down to single-proprietorship, mom-and-pop shops versus national or regional retailers, or chains,” said Councilman John Drayman, who has spearheaded an effort to put the shopping park under the city’s microscope.

GLENDALE — City officials are studying the financially viability of implementing a citywide wireless Internet network as they assess demand for the project among stakeholders. The Wi-Fi network is still in the idea stages, and it is unclear if it will progress into the quasi-free wireless network touted in other cities, those involved in the discussions said. Since the city would be unable to support a Wi-Fi network on its own, officials would need to secure investments from major stakeholders — such as hospitals, large businesses or educational institutions — to make the project worth pursuing, said Steven Hronek, the city's wireless communications administrator.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? The Glendale Community College Board of Trustees took its first major step Monday toward rebuilding campus trust following a breakdown in relations among faculty, staff and board members under the former chief executive. A report by two state academic organizations revealed early this year a climate of distrust among college stakeholders because some groups felt left out of decision-making processes for issues directly affecting them. The dynamic was a historic shift at the college, where faculty, staff, administrators and trustees had developed a system of shared governance that had become a statewide model, President/Supt.

Illegal drug and alcohol use among youth in the greater Glendale area - and the question of how to effectively combat it - drew dozens of local community leaders and health professionals to Verdugo Hills Hospital Friday where they exchanged strategies and goals. The community forum, hosted by the Crescenta Valley Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition, was devised to inject a new sense of urgency into combating substance abuse among teens, organizers said. Objectives included identifying data sources that can help shape programming and intervention efforts, and convening community partners that might be able to share best practices and pool resources.

A proposal to build a dormitory for several hundred international students at Glendale Community College appeared to falter before even making it out of the starting block this week as stakeholders voiced concerns over parking and liability issues. The concept for the dormitory was born out of a “sister city” relationship forged in 2009 between Glendale and Goseong, South Korea. As part of that tie, Glendale Community College President/Supt. Dawn Lindsay and Goseong Mayor Hak-lul Lee in November signed an agreement to allow Goseong youth to bypass bureaucratic red tape and enroll at the college.

Just days after voters soundly rejected opposition from the Glendale Teachers Assn. to Measure S and incumbent school board member Mary Boger, critics say the outcome bolsters their assertions that the union is out of touch. The union’s opposition to Measure S — the $270-million school bond — stoked the ire of Glendale Unified school board members, parents and its own dues-paying members. So too did its campaigning — the union spent more than $40,000 championing school board candidates Nayiri Nahabedian, who was reelected, and Ingrid Gunnell.

Robynn Leidig on Wednesday stood in front of a classroom of seventh-graders at Toll Middle School as their raised hands began to paint an all too common picture of verbal, cyber, emotional and sexual bullying. Leidig, a health educator with Planned Parenthood, then began outlining ways to appropriately respond, including notifying a trusted adult. "I think it is good that teachers come to say, 'It is OK, we are with you, don't be afraid,'" said Toll seventh grader Dianna Sukiasyan, 12. The lesson, which was taking place in several classrooms throughout the school, also served as a training opportunity for school officials and community leaders on how to recognize and react to antagonistic behavior.

With the May 15 deadline approaching for school districts to submit their formal list of teacher layoffs, the tension, frustration and protests have been mounting regarding figures that, by all accounts, appear to be unnecessarily inflated. In Glendale, the initial batch of pink slips sent out numbered 105; in Burbank, it was 85. But as in previous times of belt tightening, the final number of teachers who will end up actually being laid off will likely be far smaller. That’s because district administrators are held to state-imposed deadlines that force school boards as early as March to err on the conservative side when deciding how many teachers they might have to lay off. The arbitrary March 15 deadline does nothing but add unnecessary sticker shock to the price of decreased state education funding, and create a panicked sense of urgency among community stakeholders.
