Our city officials have apparently forced the ownership of Giggles Night Club to change their license to prohibit young people under the age of 18 from entering the club due to the presence of alcohol on the premises. This action is ridiculous, since it denies dancing programs at the "night club," the mere mention of which rings a bell with young people, boys and girls ages 14 to 18. We members of the Glendale Human Relations Coalition sponsored and supervised many dances of the past three to four years and had no alcoholic problems, no fights, no claims or lawsuits against Giggles or the city of Glendale over any criminal activity.

I have been sharing a message to churches and youth groups around our community titled, "Are You a History Maker?" This message has been on my heart for a long time because I am completely convinced that just one teen can positively change history. Young people have the whole world before them and their entire lives to make a difference. If a teenager can truly grasp that their decisions can benefit their lives and the lives of others, it may help them to think about their choices.

I've always appreciated that, when somebody has to say it, Will Rogers does. However, he missed one. It seems the News-Press is not addressing the fact that the two teenagers killed in La Crescenta were experimenting with drugs or, at least, they are attempting to minimize that aspect of this crime. I do not believe that the victims should ever be blamed. I certainly know that these kids made only a mistake, the same mistake that many young people make.

Please allow me to boast. Congratulations to Matthew Benitez, Jacob Deyell, Victor Garcia, Gayane Hovsepyan and Meagan Yuen for winning Hoover's first Glendale Unified Scholastic Bowl in five years - and my first victory as coach. Glendale Unified School District is to be commended for maintaining the annual event for 23 years, even during lean financial years lately.  It's the one event that showcases the smart kids in Glendale's schools and puts these young people in the spotlight.  NBC Channel 4 weatherman Fritz Coleman has been the host for the past 17 years and does a yeoman's job with his droll sense of humor.

Alex Coolman NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- It looked like it was going to be a difficult day at the youth forum. The event, held Thursday afternoon at the Glendale Civic Auditorium, was supposed to be an outlet for young people to express their concerns about life in the city. Glendale's Youth Coalition had provided the snacks and the seating, and had even put together an agenda of discussion topics. The only thing missing were the kids. Only a handful of young people showed up. They were outnumbered by city staff, school board members and parents.

Dick Seeley As the Art Events Committee of the Glendale Human Relations Coalition considers its program for its fifth year of operation, recent events involving racial and ethnic violence seemingly take on a deeper purpose, a purpose we on the committee hope our program will help to enhance. That purpose is education, for ignorance is the root cause of prejudice, bias, and hatred and education is the sole cure for ignorance. Our program, Celebrating Community, seeks, by education through the arts and humanities, to prevent racial, ethnic, religious and gender hatreds from infecting the minds of the young.

So the Glendale Human Relations Coalition figures it will right the wrongs of the U.S. Supreme Court by cutting off funding for the Boy Scouts! ("Scouts could lose in city," Sept. 22) Recently, we have had a plethora of tragedies where our young people (especially young men) have committed heinous crimes resulting in the deaths of other young people. Now the coalition would like to cut off funding to a group that could have a direct impact on reducing this violent behavior.

Knowing of infection was disturbing Before reading the article about the meningitis scare at Crescenta Valley High School ("Meningitis scare at school," Wednesday) I had no idea what meningitis was. It's alarming to discover that not only is it a very serious infection that can be fatal, but there is a case of this dangerous condition at a nearby school. It's frightening to know that something so harmful is threatening students at the school that I just graduated from four years ago. I remember the faculty at CV always being very responsible and considerate when it came to serious matters, so I am sure that the students are being taken care of in the best way possible.

Gary Moskowitz The Glendale Unified School District, with the help of grant funds, is going to get "madd" this year. The district this month will apply for a $4,000 grant from Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and plans to use the funds to create a new youth program in local high schools that will focus on creating student alcohol awareness campaigns and providing group support sessions for students. Grant funds will be used to create Youth in Action programs -- youth advocacy projects designed to provide opportunities, recognition and financial support -- for local high school students.

One of my best Christmas presents came early this year. It was a reminder of the blessings of living in our community of Glendale. It was reassurance that the future will be in the hands of competent young people who have a passion for a timeless value -- beauty. On Dec. 7, the Glendale Youth Orchestra performed its first concert of the 2004-05 season. Inspired by a young but talented cellist Shigeko Landin, who lives across the street, I was at the Alex Theatre to hear the concert.

Very interesting that I was looking for a friend who is a certified public accountant as well as a civic activist about 10 days ago, only to find out via the Mailbag (“ A long-distance fan of the city clerk ,” Feb. 23) that he is endorsing Ardy Kassakhian for reelection, and also to find out he has now moved to Athens, Pa. Interesting to know that reading and subscribing to Glendale News-Press serves another purpose as well: You need to find someone, then read the News-Press.

Excuse me, but I thought smoking and secondhand smoke were hazardous to my health (“Council loosens some smoking regulations,” Oct. 4). Also, I thought we were endeavoring to teach young people about the terrible side effects of smoking and secondhand smoke have on their health. Now, however, it appears the city fathers highly approve of outdoor smoking and hookahs at restaurants, making Glendale look a lot like Cairo. That is no compliment. Once again we are seeing that those who squeak the loudest and pour the most money into an elected official's coffers get their way, with no regard to the effect these actions have on the community as a whole.

The parade of two-wheelers snaking toward R.D. White Elementary School could have stocked a bicycle shop. There were mountain bikes, road bikes and beach cruisers with whitewall tires. Helmeted heads bobbed up and down to the rhythm of the pedals. It was a scene playing out at schools across the country Wednesday as thousands of students flicked up their kickstands and took to the streets for the first national Bike to School event. Sponsored by the National Center for Safe Routes to School, the ride was modeled after its International Walk to School Day, designed to foster pedestrian safety and healthy lifestyles.

Our beloved mother, Ann, went to God on Sunday afternoon, March 11, 2012.  She was born one hundred years ago on July 23, 1911, in Edmonton, Alberta, to Thomas and Catherine Ratigan.  The family moved to Glendale, California in 1923 where Thomas built the house where she lived most of her good life and experienced her peaceful death. In 1932, she married Bernard A. Snaer.  They were married for 67 years when he passed away in 1999. Our mother was generous in her love and support for all who needed it.  She was particularly active in activities surrounding Holy Family Catholic Church.  She was a teacher of Religious Education for public school children.  She and our father served as Eucharistic Ministers to the sick and they both helped administer the parish Bingo program for many years.  Ann was active in the Young Ladies Institute, and also served as Regent of the Catholic Daughters of America.  She continued to be active in the Cabrini Literary Guild until the month before her death.

They may not have been there to occupy, but the two dozen student government leaders who visited Glendale City Hall on Thursday expressed many of the same concerns as protesters camped out in New York City, Oakland and downtown Los Angeles. “I feel like way too many people are in debt after college,” said Salar Hajimirsadeghi, 17, a senior at Crescenta Valley High School. “They study so hard to become something in the future, but once they get out, they are just trying to pay the bills.

I wholeheartedly agree with the wisdom expressed by Samuel H. Pillsbury in his letter stating his reasons why “In Cold Blood” should be included in any junior or senior student's curriculum (“A 'Cold Blood' teaching moment,” Sept. 28). In fact, I think it should be required reading for all secondary students. I certainly understand the desire of adults to shelter their children from the ugliness of real-life violence; however, we do our teenagers a terrible disservice if we actually do so. To counteract all the gratuitous and unrealistic depictions of violence currently in our culture, we must show our young people the true horrors of killing another human being and the terrible consequences thereof.

The question of teaching of Truman Capote's “In Cold Blood” in Holly Ciotti's Advanced Placement English class (“'In Cold Blood' too bloody for students?” Sept. 25) strikes me as a great teaching moment for the whole community. I certainly sympathize with the concerns of PTA and school board members who have been disturbed by the book's graphic description of a Kansas family's killing, and their worry that it may be too much for teenage students, especially in a culture saturated with gratuitous depictions of violence.
