Karen S. Kim Jumping into cyber space could be getting a whole lot more difficult for local children and young adults who are used to playing online games with their friends at Internet cafes. The City Council will consider Tuesday amending Glendale's code to require that future cyber-cafe businesses be regulated and licensed like arcades. The amendment aims to impose much stricter zoning standards on cyber cafes, which have become attractive sites for criminal activity, according to police.

Humor for younger ones Ronnie Insalaco, 13, of Glendale is an eighth-grader at St. Bede The Venerable school in La Canada Flintridge. Eddie Murphy did great playing six different characters in the Klump family. His masculine roles and feminine roles were very well diguised. From the start, the movie had me and the audience laughing. At times,the laughter was intense. However, the middle and ending were a bit slower. Perhaps the jokes could have been more spaced throughout the movie.

Re: the development at 4201 Pennsylvania Ave., Mayor Dave Weaver recently said, “No offense folks, but you folks who live up north say it's going to impact you, I say how.” Let me address this in two parts. Egress from the location onto Pennsylvania Avenue, especially during morning and evening rush hours, would be a hazard and an accident waiting to happen. Southbound traffic hugs the right curbside lane in order to access the westbound 210 Freeway, thus creating congestion at the very point of the proposed driveway.

Last week I mentioned that I would be going to a devotional gathering of one of the younger religions in the world. It turns out I?ll be going to a devotional gathering and and what is called a fireside at the service in a home in La Crescenta on Thursday evening. The fireside is designed to educate visitors on what this religion is about. I get the feeling this is an inviting, warm place to worship, and I look forward to attending. Also, a point of clarification is needed.

According to a recent article in the Catholic weekly Our Sunday Visitor, inundated with more technology than ever before, today’s young adults struggle to engage life outside the digital realm. How can teens stay connected without losing touch with the outside world?   Over the last 15 years, we have witnessed revolutionary changes in the way we communicate and share information. And while the advent of these new technologies is largely positive, it is also true that we run the risk of weakening our direct human connections if we become too fixated on computers and cellphones.

The doorbell rang at about 7:30 one evening and our resident official greeter, Kody the wonder dog, made his usual sprint for the door. As I stepped outside to avoid a 95-pound, tail-wagging greeting for our unsuspecting caller, I was met by an attractive young lady with a small gift bag and a great smile. She introduced herself as Natalie from across the street. Handing me the gift bag, she said, “I just wanted to let you know that we will be having a party Friday night, and that if we get too loud, please don't hesitate to let us know so we can turn down the music and the noise.” I was taken aback by the gesture.
