Alex Coolman NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- As the controversy over the ABC7 sign simmers, the man who approved it in 1998 is requesting a variance for another plastic sign, this one three times as high as city codes permit. The 24-foot-high illuminated sign will be installed at a strip mall at the corner of Glenoaks Boulevard and Newby Street if it is approved at a Wednesday board of zoning adjustments hearing. Variances would be required for four code violations.

CITY HALL — Under increasingly narrow federal spending guidelines and pressed for time, the City Council on Tuesday authorized $660,934 in federal stimulus funds for a nonprofit child care center and East Garfield neighborhood improvements. In doing so, the council rejected an earlier Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee recommendation to peg a large chunk of the money for a new youth center for Homenetmen Glendale Ararat Chapter. In June, the committee voted unanimously to uphold its original recommendations to allocate $660,934 to New Horizons Family Center and Homenetmen — and a city capital improvement project to be determined.

Theater and retail is apples and oranges While it is unfortunate that A Noise Within has decided to relocate for a variety of reasons, our city government had little to do with that decision, or with securing prestigious retailer Barney's New York CO-OP for the Americana at Brand ("High-end store can't replace theater," Mailbag, Wednesday). Blame for the former must lie with A Noise Within, which was founded in 1991 and has enjoyed a reasonable amount of success here — but in the end has shown no loyalty to our city in its decision to relocate elsewhere.

Marc Stirdivant For nearly five years, Glendale-Crescenta V.O.I.C.E. has been working to find a way to preserve the Oakmont View V property as open space. And we truly appreciate the News Press' recent coverage of the subject. It is no doubt helpful to remind the community -- as was done in the Jan. 1 article "$3 million going to Oakmont V purchase" -- that the state of California has now committed $8 million to purchase the property. And it is heartening to learn that the News-Press believes that a good-faith effort should be made to find an equitable purchase price, as was the case in the Jan. 3 editorial "In search of a magic bullet."

Josh Kleinbaum As soon as Bill Lofthouse saw that the 2005 Tournament of Roses Parade would be themed "Celebrating Family," he knew that the best floats would feature animals, not people. "How do you celebrate family?" asked Lofthouse, founder and CEO of Phoenix Decorating Company. "It's hard to do sculptured figures to show a family, but if you do it with animals and family, you can generally get away with a very creative product." Lofthouse's firm designed "A Mother's Love," a float featuring a mother and two baby owls that will represent Glendale in the 2005 parade.

GLENDALE ? Aimed at making instrumental music accessible to a wider audience, the newly formed Glendale Renaissance Orchestra has already raked in $20,000 since season tickets went on sale last week, its organizers said this week. The orchestra, which will comprise about 35 musicians from across Southern California, will perform three outdoor shows at the Americana at Brand starting in April and will conclude its season with a holiday concert at the Alex Theatre. Musical offerings will range from light classical and Broadway show tunes to instrumental versions of popular hits and patriotic tunes.

Although I suspect Donald Mazen is more provocateur than newsman I feel I have to respond to his attack ("Commentary needed some common sense," Nov. 18) on Chuck Sambar's commentary ("The people spoke!" Nov. 10) on the recent election. In the spirit of full disclosure: I've traded commentaries in these pages with both gentlemen and had the pleasure of meeting them both in person. Californians who voted Proposition 73 down exhibited the common sense that recognizes in some families it's not safe for girls to discuss an unwanted pregnancy.

I have written quite a few letters to the Glendale News-Press over the past several years, and had four or five published. All of them were in reference to the terrible mess General Growth Properties, owners of the Glendale Galleria, got us into as a result of their unwillingness to work side-by-side with Caruso Affiliated Holdings. That unwillingness divided this city beyond one's comprehension, and eventually led to the dismissal of all of their ludicrous court filings. This time I am going to devote whatever journalistic abilities I may have to the very sensitive, yet very serious problem the city faces on almost a daily basis with the top-heavy Armenian population.

The subject of government-sponsored religious invocations was sure to generate comment from many quarters, and a veritable smorgasbord of opinions and assertions has been served up in these pages in recent days. With so many choices, it's difficult to decide which deserve response. I think I'll begin with the apples and oranges in Michele MacNeal's letter. The "vulgar swearing, inappropriate attire and offensive lifestyles" she has "tolerated ... for many years" are things she has encountered, as she points out, "in public," not as part of the proceedings of town councils or other government bodies.

GLENDALE — Scholarships totaling nearly $100,000 will help 105 high school students pursue higher education — a record sum and record number of students from the Glendale Scholarship Endowment, according to its founder. "This is the largest amount that the Glendale Scholarship Endowment has ever given away in one year," said Chuck Sambar, president of the Glendale Unified School District board and founder of the endowment. The Glendale Scholarship Endowment received 310 applications by its March 16 deadline this year.
