  • Glendale's got the goods



    GLENDALE – The dull roar of a train echoed Saturday as thousands of visitors gathered for what many consider a monumental fall event: The 31st edition of the Glendale Crossing Festival.

    Obama: Ultra-liberal liberal

    I have been watching presidential elections closely for many years. Barrack Obama is the most far out liberal nominated for president in my memory.
