BURBANK — Jay Leno sauntered through glass doors and onto a newly renovated stage, nonchalant and trimmer since “The Tonight Show” stopped taping across the lot in May. “The monologue is right here,” Leno said Wednesday, inching toward rows of stadium seats. Technicians and stage hands bustled in the background, readying the set for the Sept. 14 primetime premiere of “The Jay Leno Show.” The 59-year-old host continued past two 103-inch televisions, a practicing band and large detailed pictures from his vast car collection.

Councilman's analysis of the numbers appreciated Thank you so much for printing Councilman Dave Weaver's Community Commentary ("It's Not a Giveaway, but an Investment," Sept. 4). From the beginning, my instinct has been that the Town Center will make a dramatic improvement in our cityscape and will bring much-needed jobs and tax revenue to Glendale. I have attended several of Rick Caruso's community gatherings and have found him to be knowledgeable and persuasive.

The time for an ordinance allowing Glendale neighborhoods to become historic districts is now. Debates, such as those at Tuesday's City Council meeting over who should pay for historic district surveys and what city board should review home renovations, should not get in the way of what is, at its core, a good idea, and long overdue in a city celebrating its 100th birthday. Glendale has reached its centennial with some of its treasures of the past intact: neighborhoods such as Adams Hill, Cumberland Heights, El Miradero and Rossmoyne.

Robert Chacon Paul Batou paints scenes of ancient civilizations and the modern societies that arose after their destruction. Side by side, his acrylic paintings of Iraq and the United States can be mistaken as political commentary. That is not his intention, however. In a new exhibit at the Harvest Gallery, 938 N. Brand Blvd., Batou depicts scenes of ancient Babylonian and Kurdish soldiers engaged in genocide against Iraqi Christians, as well as scenes of the Native American West and a painting of New York's skyline adjacent to one of a Baghdad neighborhood.

Robert Chacon The garden-lined pathway that leads into and through the grounds of the Mirabella townhomes blooms in red, yellow, pink and white -- just the type of scene some people want for the area. Such small but significant contributions to Glendale's cityscape were recognized Tuesday when Glendale Beautiful had its 37th annual awards luncheon at Glenoaks Park. Five awards were given to local business owners, recognizing them for landscape improvements on their property.

The La Crescenta school was one of more than 1,000 Adventist schools across North America that received such a box to encourage children to celebrate the centennial of Taiwan - officially known as the Republic of China. The official name of China is the People's Republic of China.

Dean Briggs and Craig Hobbs, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- The Canyon Cafe is a very comfortable place to sit and have a drink and enjoy the view with friends. Some of their dishes are delicious and wonderful. Their entrees however, at least the three we sampled, seemed to lack focus. Situated next to the Mann's Marketplace 4 Theaters, the restaurant is decorated in a Southwestern motif that is quite attractive. As the sun went down, blinds were opened to reveal an outdoor patio and an appealing view of the Hollywood Hills behind the Glendale cityscape.

Poet and painter Paul Batou is sharing the suffering and sadness that has plagued his homeland of Iraq for centuries in a new art exhibit. The Burbank resident's book of poetry, "My Last Thoughts About Iraq," is being introduced, along with 25 of his original paintings, during an exhibit at the Harvest Gallery in Glendale. The art show, "My Iraq ... The Destruction and Aftermath of Mesopotamia," depicts scenes of destruction and rebirth spanning the period from 3000 B.C., when the Sumerian civilization inhabited Mesopotamia, to today's Iraq.

Darleene Barrientos They have the talent. The seven local teen artists chosen to paint a mural have the vision, too. What they lack is a proper wall. But that didn't deter the Glendale and La Crescenta students picked by their high school art teachers to paint on a 16-foot high by 32-foot long canvas. While one student painted the curve of a woman's arm, another artist dabbed at an image of a mountain range in a cityscape. If they can find a home for the canvas, the teens will have a public mural, which they've been working on at the First Congregational Church of Glendale.
