Glendale Unified officials have about three weeks to file a written response to the court before a trial date is set. The complaint originates from an incident in February 2009 when the gym teacher allegedly hit student David Penerjhyan, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents. “The district hasn’t demonstrated to the community that it’s acting responsibly to this incident,” said Gary Brown, the plaintiff’s lawyer.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Grant Baciocco has been a fan of comedy music for as long as he can remember. "I would sneak my Walkman to bed at night and listen to it," he said, reminiscing about when he was a child. Artists such as Weird "Al" Yankovic, known for his musical parodies of popular songs, were among his favorites. These days, the Glendale Unified substitute teacher is following in their footsteps with his own musical comedy group, Throwing Toasters.

Touches every human emotion Leslie Thurston of Burbank is an actress and substitute teacher. It would be pointless to say anything critical about "John Q.," so, I won't. Everyone should see this film and bring the hankies. However, you won't need them as much as you think. Surprisingly, there is humor throughout this film, especially from the talented Eddie Griffin. Rest assured, Denzel Washington doesn't disappoint, either. Yet, it is the comedic element that gives the story emotional balance and sense of reality.

Glendale teachers seek more support for their own The GTA would like to commend Dan Kimber on his article ("Subpar decision by district" Oct. 22 News-Press). As teachers, our top priority is to provide a safe and effective learning environment for all students. Unfortunately, while it is also the mission of the district, GUSD has chosen the wrong route in this case. This disturbs us as teachers, leaving us wondering whether or not we will be supported in doing the job the district has assigned us to do. Few would deny that one ugly aspect of our national character is our sue-happy trait.
