At Glendale Community College on May 9, author James Ellroy addressed students. I am not exaggerating when I say he started his speech by insulting his audience. Students were afraid to ask a question because they didn't want to be cussed out by him. Ten minutes before the speech was over, a student decided to leave the auditorium and this is where his second round of insults began. The girl was so ashamed that she left the auditorium blushing. Students have witnessed and met so many authors where they had the opportunity to learn something and ask questions, but unfortunately this was the only meeting when almost no one learned from a presentation.

While family members of “The Duke” looked on, Glendale High School's auditorium was officially renamed the John Wayne Performing Arts Center on Friday to honor the 1925 graduate of the school. As a student of Glendale High in the 1920s, Wayne was known as Marion Morrison. He played on the Nitro's football team, wrote for the campus newspaper and served as chairman of the senior dance committee. He was also a member of Glendale's stage crew, performed in several theatrical productions and was voted by his classmates as senior class president.

In honor of one of the most famous icons who has ever lived in the city, Glendale High School will change the name of its auditorium to the John Wayne Performing Arts Center, after the legendary actor who is not otherwise recognized in the city where he came of age. Before he took on his stage name, Marion Morrison attended what was then Glendale's only high school, then called Glendale Union High School. The future western film star played on the school's football team, served as class president during his senior year and acted in school productions before graduating in 1925.

With demand for soccer fields far outstripping availability in built-out Glendale, city officials are taking a novel approach to freeing up additional space. They're going indoors. Starting in June, the Civic Auditorium's upper level is slated to be converted into an indoor soccer area. The plan - approved unanimously by the City Council this week - comes as demand for a soccer area in Glendale has become so great that some residents drive as far as Chatsworth to play, organizers said at a council meeting Tuesday.

The organizer of the Glendale Gun Show is declining to discuss his future plans after the City Council on Tuesday moved to ban gun sales from all city-owned property. In an interview, Steve Friesen, the gun show's promoter, declined to publicly discuss his feelings on the ban, saying only that he planned to be at the next City Council meeting when the draft ordinance returns for review. “We still got a lot ahead of us in this whole process,” he said. Meanwhile, city parks officials say they plan to wait until the ban is official before starting the process of finding alternate events to take the place of the gun show, which had a contract at the Civic Auditorium for three shows in 2013 and 2014.

George D. Stepper was the man behind the building at 220 West Broadway that became known as the Stepper Auditorium building. It later became the first home of the Verdugo Club, then gave way to redevelopment in the late 1970s. Stepper's building opened in 1928 with four stories, 24 office spaces and, on the second floor, the “largest and most beautiful auditorium or social hall in Glendale,” as glowingly described in a booklet Stepper produced at the time. “The conception of this building has been largely shaped by the public spirit and civic pride of the owner who has not allowed the usual consideration of maximum returns for the investment to influence his decision.” Glendale then had a population of 78,000 and described itself as one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.
