The devastation experienced on the campus of Virginia Tech this week has sent a shock wave across the nation that has prompted comment from local and state representatives. "We are all deeply saddened by the horrific loss of life by the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech," said Sen. Jack Scott in a prepared statement issued Monday afternoon. "It is a call to action for us to review our own procedures to ensure the safety of our public schools and college campuses. "We have enacted many laws to restrict weapons on campus, but we must also ensure that our school and college personnel have security plans and trained personnel ready to respond when these senseless acts of violence take place.

EAST GLENDALE — Reverberations of Virginia Tech's shooting massacre rang as clearly as a church bell in a small chapel in the east tower of Glendale Adventist Medical Center on Wednesday. About 20 hospital staff members sat in upright wooden pews as chaplains directed a short service in solemn remembrance of the 32 students who were shot to death Monday on the Blacksburg, Virginia, campus. "As we serve in the hospital, we become more sensitive to these types of things," said Al Garcilazo, senior chaplain for the hospital.

Many who are following the Virginia Tech tragedy are sharing the deep sorrow of parents and relatives of those who perished. We all try to make sense of violence so incomprehensible that we feel compelled to grasp for answers ? almost any answer. We wonder if we've learned anything from the similar incident at Columbine High School five years ago. The lesson of Columbine, I believe, lies in our understanding of the mental state of Eric Harris and his depressed partner. The lessons we should learn from Virginia Tech are probably very similar.

GLENDALE — As one his first actions as Board of Education president, Greg Krikorian called on the City Council to join the school district in reexamining the emergency response plan in the schools — an appeal that confused, if not irritated, council members. Krikorian's plea at Tuesday's City Council meeting was a reaction to the shooting that killed 33 students at Virginia Tech on Monday. "In light of what took place in Virginia Tech, it's important for us to reevaluate our safety measures," Krikorian said.

No special treatment for homeowners Property owners Minas and Dalida Keuroghlian requested a permit and were denied months ago. They were refunded money that shouldn't have been paid and were told clearly they could not have a business there. They have apparently continued to do so illegally. I don't feel they should be given any consideration as they ask for a use variance now ("Hassle on home use heats up," Thursday). They knew when they applied for a permit that the zoning was residential and I agree it would cause a domino effect to residents in that block.

GLENDALE — Susan Troh moved as quickly as she could from one patient to the next, separating victims according to their injuries so paramedics would know who to treat first. It wasn't an easy job. Some injuries were internal and serious, others, though painful, were merely superficial and required less immediate attention. And in this large-scale disaster, prioritizing was crucial. But unlike most disasters, the 10 victims sat up and gave Stroh and her responding partner a quick round of applause after they finished their triage.

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. Alyssa Sovereign (Crescenta Valley High, 2010) sophomore, Penn State softball: After getting out to a bit of a slow start, the Crescenta Valley High product has come on strong as of late. She's gone 10 for 30 over a current eight-game hitting streak that's also including a four-game winning streak for the Nittany Lions that only just ended on Sunday when Penn state lost to Illinois, 1-0, in the final game of its stay at the Citrus Classic in Kissimmee, Fla. Penn State began the tournament with a split of a doubleheader against Virginia (13-1 loss)

GLENDALE — National Notification Network, or 3n, a Glendale-based communications technology company, was selected by Virginia Tech University to be the campus' emergency communications system provider, university officials said. The university, which was the scene of a school shooting on April 16 when a student killed 32 people and himself, initiated the search for an emergency communications system provider in October 2006, university spokesperson Mark Owczarski said. "When April 16 occurred, much of that selection work was suspended for a period of time and then we renewed that process approximately a month afterward," Owczarski said.
