Some good, some bad takes on 103

One questions why a newspaper that serves a maturing community of

Glendale’s size, with so many issues and ideas deserving of “inches”

in the daily press, continues to annually feature a “list” that,

while well-intentioned, resembles something found in a high school

yearbook.

But, as lists go, there were folks overlooked who played

influential roles in widely divergent issues impacting Glendale, such

as Carole Sussman, Chrissi Fernandez, Margaret Hammond, Jim Weling,

and (as groups) all the Humane Society volunteers and the car

dealers!

There are countless others, homeowners and renters, small

businesspeople and achievers in sports, the arts, communications,

etc., and neighborhood activists using their spare time to pursue

resolution of these issues, keeping the city on its toes with as much

diligence and sincerity as they can muster.

They fill niches no one else quite could.

That said, thank you for ranking the City Council second, up from

last year’s fifth, because it has generally, despite controversy,

demonstrated growth, receptivity, flexibility, courage, and patience.

And the fire and police chiefs unquestionably earned their top spot.
