As most of you know, I belong to or am on the boards of a couple of local organizations. One of these is the Kiwanis Club of Glendale.

Celebrate Halloween: Fun – and Frights – in the Foothills
 
Let’s face it – 2020 stinks. Among the many threats I’ve heard regarding the horrendous year is from those who notoriously head to bed prior to the ball dropping on New Year’s Eve. This year, though, they swear they’ll stay awake into 2021 – not to […]

Dancing in the Street
 
This pandemic has revealed so much of us as a society. Like you, I’ve seen some craziness I would never think would be a part of the American fabric. For example, weeks of rioting and civil unrest across the country in cities like Portland, Oregon, Kenosha, Wisconsin and Denver, Colorado have resulted […]

By Robin GOLDSWORTHY
On Saturday morning, with temperatures edging into the high 80s, about 30 demonstrators gathered on the four corners of Montrose Avenue and Waltonia Drive in front of the Montrose Post Office to defend the services provided by the United States Postal Service – something demonstrators feel is in jeopardy.

Politically Speaking
 
Last week was the broadcast of the Democratic National Convention; this week it’s the Republican National Convention. Those who know me will not be surprised to learn that I didn’t spend much time watching either. I did watch a little – these are historic times, after all, with COVID-19 preventing the large gathering of […]

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes … and Hair … and Lungs
 
Like you, just a few days ago I woke up to blue, clear skies. Temperatures were beginning to climb but weren’t yet unbearable. Little did I know that this was about to change.
A scant few days later I smelled it before I saw it – […]

Highs and Lows
 
I find this week that, emotionally, I’ve been on a roller coaster.
First, I was on a high when I learned about the outreach efforts of Crescenta Valley High School students to collect food for the Bailey Center in Tujunga. Mary O’Keefe’s cover story shares how many of the students who are involved […]
