CITY HALL ? Potential electioneering crossed with taxpayer-funded television ? and the controversy it created seven years ago ? could hamper Mayor John Drayman?s plans to reintroduce his colleagues to the public airwaves. His plans for a pre-taped television show on the city?s government-access channel, GTV6, would include all five City Council members as they respond to viewer-generated inquiries by holding interviews with various city officials and leaders. To do so, the City Council will have to reverse a policy established in 2001, when Councilman Dave Weaver?

Judging by the response to my Aug. 20 column, I believe it's safe to say that everyone is now back from vacation. I was beginning to wonder what it was going to take to get some momentum going on a good argument. What finally got things rolling was a favorite subject of mine, for which I can thank Joe Bell for initiating. The Communications Act of 1934 forbade noncommercial broadcasters (in this case, stations such as KOCE) from airing advertisements defined as messages that "promote any service, facility or product" for profit.

Bobby Mauldin had only $21 in his pocket when he ran away from home at the age of 16. But running away with the little that he had didn’t stop him from achieving his goal of going to college. Mauldin, now 77, left to escape abuse, but he managed to make ends meet when he worked odd jobs and put himself through school. Despite his hardship, Mauldin dreamed of going to college to become a television reporter. He worked hard, saved his money and got into North Texas State College in 1949.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Before the epic struggle of the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens gets underway Sunday, some local residents will be engaged in a struggle of their own: the quest to get access to a television to watch the Super Bowl. For some, nothing more is required than a twitch of the thumb on the remote control. But for many residents, access to the basic human right of football is still uncertain. At the Glendale jail, for example, some wretched inmates will be forced to go without so much as a glimpse of a field goal or the sweet twitter of a referee's whistle, according to police Sgt. Rick Young.

Magician John Gabriel will perform his "Magic Redefined" magic show at the Alex Theatre, 216 N. Brand Blvd. in Glendale, on April 7 at 8 p.m. While most kids were sitting in front of the television, eyes locked on cartoons, John Gabriel was making magic. Today, his fascination with the art of illusion has made him a spectacle to watch on network television, from opening an NBC television special at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to spectacular live shows. His romantic double levitation was also featured on NBC and was given the name by the industry as the "Greatest Illusion of the Year."

Claudia Peschiutta STRANGE BEDFELLOWS City streets aren't the only place to find Glendale Police Sgt. Rick Young these days. He made it into the home of one woman, who caught Young's comments on more than one local television news broadcast. "I went to bed with you on television last night and I woke up with you this morning," the woman said to Young Friday morning when she ran into him near the site of the Metrolink train crash on Grandview Avenue.

I was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1939. I listened to Red Barber introduce Jackie Robinson in 1947 and Vin Scully in 1950. In 1951, my parents moved to Glendale. My father and I were thrilled when the Dodgers moved to L.A. in 1958 and as fans we didn't understand how lucky we were to have the O'Malleys as owners of the team. The fans always came first. When Peter O'Malley sold the team to Fox and then the McCourts, we saw greed for the first time in a Dodger uniform. The new ownership with Magic Johnson gave me hope.

A Glendale Community College instructor and his wife, who have adopted six children, have turned the love and chaos of their family life into that most American of pursuits: reality television. High school sweethearts from Illinois, Ryun Hovind and MeLisa Lomelino married in 1997 and made a pact not to have children of their own, but to open their home to others who weren't fortunate enough to have a family. “This is a way to totally transform someone's life,” Hovind said. Now in their mid-30s, Hovind and Lomelino reside in Los Angeles with their current family of four children between 10 and 16 years old. The two oldest, 18- and 21-year-old young men, are now living on their own. Hovind works as an adjunct instructor in the college's media arts department.

Re: “ Film permits on a roll ,” Dec. 14. Kudos to City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian for creating a full-time position for film permitting in Glendale. I'm glad that Glendale is embracing the fact that some of the largest film studios in the world are located just minutes from our city. This is a great potential source of revenue for the city, which doesn't require raising the taxes of citizens. It's also a great way to help the local economy and to help make sure that money and jobs stay here rather than go to other states, which continue to steal production from California.

Teacher evaluations and budget hurdles were among the topics submitted from the public for a forum that put the spotlight on the seven candidates vying for three seats on the Glendale Unified school board. The televised forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters of Glendale/Burbank on Wednesday, attracted about 20 people to the district headquarters, where candidates each were given up to one minute to respond to each question. Speaking on the teacher-evaluation process, incumbent Christine Walters said statewide test scores shouldn't be the only measurement of teacher effectiveness.

Well, it happened. It was inevitable, friends tell me. It's part of the parenting experience, or so the experts say. We got a TV for our son's bedroom. He can now play Call of Duty yelling out bizarre yelps in the comforts of his own room. Of course, the 3-hour limit of game playing on weekends (none during the school week) is still enforced. My wife and I held out for almost 14 years to make sure that our family had one television to allow for whole family viewing opportunities and to avoid having the kids seclude themselves behind locked doors.
