    Letter: Denial of building paint job makes him laugh

    As I get older if find the strangest things make me laugh out loud. My latest encounter was reading that Roger Kiesel, a case planner for the city, and Community Development Director Philip Lanzafame had decided against allowing Pacific BMW to paint the front of their facility on Brand Boulevard...

  • Guest Commentary: Documentary captures Jewel City's gleam

    Have you ever wondered about all of the vintage buildings and homes in Glendale and how it is that amid the progressive growth of the city, there still remain so many beautiful structures, businesses and people? A documentary entitled "Vintage Glorious Glendale" is in movie theaters and encompasses...

  • Letter: Scalia, others miss an important point

    Justice Scalia and the other opinions given in the In Theory articles are missing a very important point. I believe God is our conscience and he speaks to us every day, telling us right from wrong. He does not necessarily have anything to do with religion. Some religions are very corrupt and they...

  • Letter: Kazaz exhibition was a success

    Earlier this month, there was a successful art exhibition at the Consulate of the Republic of Armenia, in Glendale, presenting the works of the famous artist Emil Kazaz.

  • Letter: Freeway expansion is not a good idea

    Freeways are crowded but each time one is expanded, like the recent multiyear effort on the 405, the traffic doesn’t improve.

  • Editorial: Follow up a wise plan with outreach

  • Commentary: Fighting Parkinson's with faith and bocce ball

    I hate to see things end like this. Robin Williams’ widow recently told the Associated Press that she didn’t blame her husband for taking his life in August 2014. The brilliant actor/comedian had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease several months earlier. Susan Williams said her husband was...

    News-Press Editorial: One more item to add to the park improvement list

    Just how a one-time pool of $16 million would best be spent to enhance the park offerings in Glendale has been under consideration in City Hall this month. If used wisely, the funds, courtesy of development-impact fees related to recent residential and mixed-use projects, obviously stand to benefit...

    Commentary: Massacre hit too close to home

    San Bernardino has a special place in my heart. I was 22 years old and fresh out of college when I called the managing editor of the city’s paper of record, the San Bernardino Sun, to ask him for a job. I confessed I had no experience, but assured him that I was an intelligent self-starter. I insisted...

Czech President Milos Zeman said this month that it was "practically impossible" to integrate Muslims into European society. "Let them have their culture in their countries and not take it to Europe," said Zeman, who went on to say that Europe would "end up like Cologne," referring to the large...
