I was truly saddened that Emzy Veazy III, the unemployed attorney on welfare who specialized in anti-Armenian speeches in front of the City Council, moved to Colorado. He had provided tremendous humor to us Glendalians as our court jester, and he shall be terribly missed. I'm thrilled that he is actively defending the U.S. Flag Code in Colorado and using Glendale as an example of what to avoid. After all, if the likes of Mr. Veazy don't protect our flag from these "damned foreigners," who will?

A proposed mixed-use project along Colorado Street that was voted down by the City Council last June because it was too big has been scaled down and the public can comment on its draft environmental impact report through Monday. Glendale-based CMGT Construction Co. initially wanted to build a four-story building with 90 residential units, 28,828 square feet of retail space, a daycare and a restaurant on a .99-acre lot it owns at 507-525 W. Colorado St. Nearly a year after the development was denied, the commercial component is supplanted with 18,000 square feet of medical-office space and the daycare has been nixed, while the 1,700-square-foot restaurant is scaled back to a 1,000-square-foot counter-service eatery with limited seating, according to the draft environmental impact report.

A wildlife sanctuary in Colorado that was blocked by state officials there from taking in the Glendale bear known as Meatball filed a lawsuit Tuesday in an effort to overturn a regulation it claims is being invoked at the expense of the beloved 400-pound bruin getting the best possible home. Colorado wildlife officials have said a state regulation prohibits wild animals such as Meatball from being kept at sanctuaries. Their counterparts in California agree, saying there are no plans to transport the bear to the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, which filed the lawsuit in Denver.

The fate of the Glendale bear remains in flux as officials from California and Colorado sort out the nuances of a wildlife law in the Rocky Mountain state that has put any move on hold.    The meatball-loving bear who frequented the Glendale and La Crescenta - Montrose areas and saw his popularity explode over the last five months was tranquilized and trapped last week, taken to a sanctuary in Alpine and transferred to a quarantine cage. It was to be his temporary home, but on Wednesday that was where he remained.

Colorado officials say the popular Glendale bear known as “Meatball” - trapped and taken to a temporary rescue facility in San Diego County - will not be permitted residency at a sanctuary in the Rocky Mountain state. “This bear can't come to Colorado,” said Randy Hamilton, spokesman for Colorado Parks & Wildlife, pointing to state regulations that prevent sanctuaries from accepting wild animals. There's been a tug-of-war over the 400-pound bear since he was caught last week in La Cañada Flintridge.
