Council hopefuls speak out

first_imgOn development: “I see us handling the mansionization issue and taking steps to prevent untold growth in our residential areas through down-zoning multifamily, residential areas.” John Drayman, 48, photo preservationist, president of Montrose Shopping Park Association. On city leadership: “Representing the needs of our citizens will be my first priority. All issues of economic development and the allocation of municipal resources will flow from this.” On development: “There is a perception that Glendale is being tacitly rezoned neighborhood by neighborhood through … residential encroachment, overbuilding and incompatible development. I will address this by continuing to advocate for a workable view/mansionization ordinance.” Chahe Keuroghelian, 49, immigration consultant, former Glendale Police spokesman. GLENDALE – A slate of civic activists, local leaders and a school board member will attempt to unseat two incumbents in the April3 general election. With a week before the election, the Daily News queried the eight hopefuls on key issues. Excerpts: Dave Weaver, 67, mayor of Glendale, elected to City Council in 1997. On experience: “I am a good listener and have always made my decisions based on doing my homework and voting my conscience for what I have believed was in the best interests of Glendale.” On experience: “My multicultural/multilingual background gives me deep appreciation for the cultural diversity that enriches the city.” Key policy ideas: “Supporting small businesses, providing jobs to especially our young work force, allocating necessary funds for senior and youth programs, encouraging home ownership, exploring creative ways to address … affordable housing.” Greg Krikorian, 44, businessman, Glendale Unified School District board member elected in 2001. On experience: “I responsibly helped manage the (school) district’s 3,000 employees and its $300million budget. As a small-business owner … I have developed extensive experience in working with local, state and federal elected officials.” On development: “This overbuilding and mansionization has had an adverse impact on not only the properties that are next to these lots, but on our neighborhoods as a whole.” Rafi Manoukian, accountant, incumbent city councilman. Elected in 1999, Manoukian did not respond to several requests for comment by deadline. Herbert Molano, 57, businessman, activist. On campaign finance reform: “Three major special interests now control our city elections: The Glendale Employee Unions, a handful of major developers, and the Armenian National Committee Glendale Chapter. But, we can start by putting in place campaign contribution limits.” On the candidate’s lawsuit against the city about the Downtown Specific Plan: “The city failed to address the extreme shortage of developed parkland, and they failed to establish clear guidelines or performance objectives to reduce the traffic congestion.” Lenore M. Solis, 48, business owner, former Glendale Water & Power commissioner. On land-use and traffic: “We need to stop allowing the use of variances to … build homes that are not compatible with our neighborhoods.” On accountability: “We had a $17million cost overrun on the police building, and we have raised utility rates and utility taxes to support the general fund expenditures. … The citizens of Glendale have a right to know that their money is being spent efficiently.” Vrej Agajanian, 55, television commentator, engineer. On improving quality of life in the city: “The first step is to change the attitudes at City Hall to make the council and top staff view every Glendale resident as a partner, not an annoyance.” ” By welcoming the people of Glendale as partners a new council will begin a new era of citizen engagement, with carefully managed development that preserves our neighborhoods, hillsides and views.” eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Final love letter’s what he needed

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “To my loving husband. Today is a special day and I can’t think of a better way to start it than by telling you I love you. “After all these years together as husband and wife, the most important thing I’ve learned is that love is a whole lot more than flowers and candlelight. “It’s sticking together during those times when you’re short on money, patience and confidence. It’s taking turns getting up with sick children, sacrificing something you want for something the family needs and always being willing to listen. “We’ve been through a lot together, and yet we’ve always emerged closer and stronger than before. I don’t know if I could have made it through without you there by my side. “I will miss your voice and bright smile, and although we will be separated, memories cannot be taken from us. You are a great loving and caring husband, father, grandfather and soon to be great-grandfather. “We started out with nothing but each other. Then our lives were blessed with three wonderful sons and we thought we were the richest people in the world. “We have lived and loved together through many trying years. We shared each other’s gladness and wept each other’s tears. But now, I must go home. God’s said it is my time. “May God bless you, and watch over you until we meet again. Love forever, your loving wife, Flo.” Norman wiped away the tears, and closed his eyes. His wife didn’t have to write that letter. He knew she loved him, almost as much as he loved her. He was a cocky young guy when he came home from World War II in 1946, on a mission to propose to the hometown girl from Flushing, Long Island, whom he’d known since they were both 11. But Norm Edwards had a quick stop to make first. To see their parish priest. “Have you got a date open, Father? I’m going to get married,” Norm said. “Have you asked Flo yet?” the priest asked. Norm shook his head. Not yet. That was next. “I asked her to go to the movies, and as we were walking there I told her I wanted to make a quick stop by the church first,” Norm said Monday. “As we walked by, the priest yelled out, ‘Is June 9th OK, Norm?’ I said, Wait a minute, I’ll find out.” Then Norm got down on one knee and asked his childhood sweetheart to marry him – preferably on June 9th. She said yes. Fifty-nine years later, another priest – Father Kevin Rettig of St. Joseph The Worker Church in Canoga Park – stood in front of 120 parishioners at Mass one Sunday, asking them to please stick around a little longer. He had a letter he wanted to read to them about a beautiful marriage that two of their own – Norm and Flo Edwards – had for almost six decades. When the priest looked up after reading Flo’s last love letter, there wasn’t a dry eye in God’s house, he said. “Flo knew Norm was going to need that letter,” said Nancy Coffman, Norm’s sister and Flo’s best friend. “The reassurance that he did a great job as a husband and father – and she gave it to him.” Because love is a whole lot more than flowers and candlelight.

You’re all set! Norm found the letter exactly where Flo had hidden it a few days before she died. Top drawer of the bedroom dresser, right-hand side, under her lingerie. His sister, Nancy, had called a few minutes earlier, telling Norm it was there, and how Flo had made her promise not to tell him until after she was gone. And now, Norman Edwards sat on the edge of the bed he and Flo had shared through 59 years of marriage, holding the last love letter his wife wrote before cancer ended their love affair in October. “Do not open until God calls me,” the envelope read. last_img read more

Colombia boss provides bleak update on James Rodriguez’s injury

first_imgColombia boss Jose Pekerman fears James Rodriguez will miss Tuesday’s last 16 World Cup meeting with England.The Bayern Munich midfielder limped out of his country’s final World Cup Group H game against Senegal with a recurrence of a calf injury. 2 Rodriguez keeps his head down as he leaves the field with an injury The talisman is now in a race against time to be fit for South Americans’ knockout stage showdown with the Three Lions, with Pekerman sounding less-than enthusiastic about having the 2014 Golden Boot winner available.“What I can say is I’m extremely concerned, it’s a very tough situation for my team,” Pekerman said.“I didn’t want to address this in comments because it seems one of these topics [that] can overshadow everything else. Pekerman consoles Rodriguez after limping off the pitch 2 “In the last Poland match James felt fatigue but it was only fatigue and that was due to him not being present in the previous match.“He trained normally for us until yesterday, he stayed on afterwards practicing finishing, free-kicks, penalties. He was fully fit in training and in the last training session there was no hint of any injury but right now I don’t know where he stands, to be honest.”Having failed to start the opening game, a defeat to Japan, Rodriguez was reportedly carrying a calf injury before the tournament.When asked if it was a recurrence of the same injury, Pekerman was cagey to say the least.“At the moment I don’t have that information, I cannot confirm or deny anything, we’ll have to wait and see,” he said.“We do hope that we’ll hear good news after he’s gone for his check-up and we’ll get a clear idea of what happened.“What we’re trying to do now is think about what we need to do going forward.”The Three Lions will face Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday, July 3 at 7pm, live on talkSPORT.talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more
