I am trying again to say what I mean about Glendale's homeless shelter. The Catholic nun, Mother Teresa, who worked among the homeless and poor, said when we see a homeless person, we are looking at Jesus Christ in a distressing disguise. We may also be looking at the son or daughter, brother or sister, of our own Glendale neighbors and friends, without knowing it. I learned this many years ago when I saw a beautiful young girl barefoot and filthy lying on the pavement in front of our church every Sunday morning.

Jerry Lane Have you ever been to Mesa, Ariz.? It's the third-largest city in the Grand Canyon State and its public relations organizations call it one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation. We've been visiting my sisters there several times each year since 1983 and the expanding traffic situation there in that period of time makes me believe they might be telling the truth. When we arrived there on Wednesday, the main roads around the city looked like Los Angeles at rush hour.

Each year, Falcons have collected pajamas to donate to cancer patients at the City of Hope in Duarte. The deadline for the collection this year is Tuesday.

Real loss to our community and our world. I have asked myself over and over again why, and I know I will never get an answer. I keep thinking that when I show up to the park I will be greeted by a hug and a smile like always by one of the most genuine girls that I have ever met, but that will no longer happen. Annemarie was one of the best people that I know. I had never ever heard her say a bad word about anyone, and you know how young girls can be. She was as real as it gets.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE ADVENTIST MEDICAL CENTER - Santa Claus doesn't always make it to Yonorelda Pineda's house so she was happy to bring her two children to St. Nick this year. The Pinedas were among the estimated 1,000 low-income families from throughout the Los Angeles area invited to a Christmas party Monday sponsored by the hospital and the Glendale Health Center of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services. When her children, Alejandro, 7, and Ana, 9, ask why they don't get presents like other kids in their Glendale neighborhood, Pineda makes excuses for Santa Claus.
