Darleene Barrientos Stepping away from the table where she had just met two of the stars of "Degrassi: The Next Generation," 17-year-old Monrovia resident Tricia Olbribge needed a moment to collect herself and look at some of the pictures her mom had taken of the encounter. "I'm, like, shaking so bad right now," Tricia said, wringing her hands. "I'm, like, speechless right now." Tricia, along with nearly 4,000 other teenagers from all over Southern California, clamored to meet Stacey Farber and Aubrey Graham, who play Ellie Nash and Jimmy Brooks, respectively, on "Degrassi," a cable TV drama.

GLENDALE — About a dozen teenagers, parents and community members stood in awe of a Ford Explorer that looked more like a movie prop than a serviceable car Thursday at Maple Park. The totaled SUV was a central feature in a safety workshop Thursday hosted by the California Highway Patrol officer and the city of Glendale. Officer Andre Primeaux told the audience, more than half of whom were 15-year-olds, that they need to be aware of their surroundings. “We want them to be safe,” he said.

Recently, Jim in Glendale saw a newspaper headline that said something like "Five school board members lose seat. " That didn't sit right with him. "Using the singular 'seat' — instead of the plural 'seats' — is incompatible with 'members,'" Jim wrote in an e-mail. "But that type of usage, though sloppy, seems to be common in everyday speech. So where do we stand? Is it a flagrant no-no, or is it one of those cases where only fussy grammarians would nitpick the issue?"

Dance parties are the norm for most teenagers, but not when they’re autistic. So when Redlands resident Margaret Freeman heard about a dance targeted at teenagers with autism, she didn’t think twice about driving to Glendale for the event Saturday at the Adult Recreation Center. “We don’t have anything like this up our way,” Freeman said, adding that her 14-year-old daughter likes to dance but doesn’t have many opportunities to go to parties where she feels comfortable.

Less than a mile from where the bodies of young Blaine Talmo Jr. and Christopher McCulloch were found is where I spent lazy summer days hiding in trees and spying on my older sister. I have watched this tragedy unfold and discussed in the local supermarket lines, splashed across the television and immortalized in The Leader. Hushed whispers and newspapers portray our community as a middle-class oasis free from the pressures of the real world. La Crescenta has the mystique of a Brigadoon, the safely isolated haven from the 1954 Gene Kelly movie.

I wholeheartedly agree with the wisdom expressed by Samuel H. Pillsbury in his letter stating his reasons why “In Cold Blood” should be included in any junior or senior student's curriculum (“A 'Cold Blood' teaching moment,” Sept. 28). In fact, I think it should be required reading for all secondary students. I certainly understand the desire of adults to shelter their children from the ugliness of real-life violence; however, we do our teenagers a terrible disservice if we actually do so. To counteract all the gratuitous and unrealistic depictions of violence currently in our culture, we must show our young people the true horrors of killing another human being and the terrible consequences thereof.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Memo to Brock Morgan: You were a wise, sophisticated, congenial and married 24-year-old youth pastor, who made a difference in teenagers' lives in Glendale, Alexandria, Va., and Long Beach. You had an inspiration and ambition to start a basketball league for junior high students and ran with it. Along with your wife, Kelsey, and high school best friend, Rudy Nielson, you started a youth basketball league in 1995, which blossomed into a learning ground for nervous 13- and 14-year-olds uneasy about ascending to the ranks of high school competition.

SOUTH GLENDALE — Thirteen-year-old Chad Anderson had no problem waking up early Saturday morning for some community service. The seventh-grader at La Cañada Junior and Senior High School was one of about 200 volunteers who beautified Muir Elementary School in Glendale. “It’s nice to do service,” Chad said. “It makes you happy.” It also made the school look brand new. Decaying fences were repainted and arid soil was replaced with fresh plants, flowers and much — donated by the volunteers from the Church of Latter-day Saints, school parents and community members.
