Lent should reflect what we choose to kill and eat This week marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period preceding Easter when Christians have traditionally abstained from meat and dairy products in memory of Jesus' 40 days of fast and prayer before dying on the cross ("Beginning of Lenten season marked," Feb. 22). With religious devotion giving way to self-indulgence in recent times, Christian denominations gradually receded to meatless Fridays, then to even fewer dietary restrictions.

Committee's survey is one-sided Recently, I have followed the news regarding the Glendale Police Department's towing service contract, and I wanted to comment on actions taken regarding Gay's Automotive and Towing Inc. ("Council weighs towing services," Aug. 22) My wife and I have known Carvel and Pat Gay for the past 36 years, and have had many occasions to use their services. We have always received exceptional service through all of these years, and know the owners to be extremely honest and credible citizens of our community.

Everybody didn't always have a telephone. I can remember when a youngster would be called in from playing by the owner of the corner candy store to run and tell Mrs. Smith on Elm Street that she was wanted on the telephone in the third booth at Harry's. The youngster would run to the house to deliver the message and would receive 5 cents from Mrs. Smith for doing so as she raced down the street to take her call. Things have changed a whole lot since then.
