In the Jan. 10 Glendale News-Press was an article titled “Rim of the Valley draws support.” I do not believe the supporters know the whole story. The proposed new national park covers an area two-thirds the size of Yosemite National Park. We cannot afford another national park. Right now $10 billion is needed to upgrade our present park system. This park will cost another $2 billion for land acquisition and in doing so takes that property off the tax rolls. It will affect 172,000 property owners who will have little say about their property being taken.

Hamlet Nalbandyan The body called, and John Radich had to listen. It wasn't easy for the 50-year-old ultramarathoner who works at the Glendale-based The Way to Happiness Foundation. Radich, who has raised more than $100,000 for charity through his running, had planned to run more than 700 miles in his latest journey, which would have taken him from Death Valley to Yosemite and back. However, Radich could only complete half of that journey this time around after several unforeseen setbacks forced him to stop at Yosemite National Park.

The dedication ceremony took place on the Lincoln playground and was attended by Jenkins' family, friends, former coaches and educators and current fourth- through sixth-grade students.

Actor Lee Stetson has been performing his one-man John Muir shows for visitors at Yosemite National Park since 1983 in an attempt to keep the spirit of the famous naturalist alive. For the first time this month, he will bring his performance, ?John Muir is Back (And Boy, Is He Ticked Off!),? to the Alex Theatre.

But when you play a schedule of four ranked teams in as many weeks, a 1-3 record is unfortunately the result.
