Glenn B. Ward spent his entire career as a professional photographer working out of a small studio in his adopted city of Glendale. Ward was born and raised in Fresno and earned a business degree before coming to work at Lockheed in the early 1940s. A mutual friend from Glendale Presbyterian Church introduced him to a young woman named Betty Hendricks. When he joined the Air Force in 1942 and was sent off to Europe, they began writing letters to one other. During his tour of duty, he flew C-47 transports in and out of battle, carrying wounded soldiers, supplies and officers in France and England.

On Monday, the Transportation and Parking Commission supported streamlining rules for a special permitting process in an effort to strike a compromise between the competing interests. “It's not a perfect plan. It's a start,” said Commissioner Aram Sahakian in front of about 25 people at the City Hall meeting. If the City Council eventually approves the ordinance as recommended by the commission, the city will create a “preferential parking district” bounded by Central Avenue to the west, Colorado Street to the north, Glendale Avenue to the east and San Fernando Road to the south.

Anderson GLENDALE -- If you wanted a good time in Glendale back in the '30s, chances are you borrowed Dad's car, went dancing and topped off the evening with a double-decker at Bob's Big Boy Burger. Of course, that was Saturday night's agenda. Friday night's started with the Glendale High School football games. After the game, you could grab some grub at Ed "Strangler" Lewis' Restaurant and Lounge at 711 S. Brand Boulevard or Bob's Drive-in, said Glendale resident Glenn Cornwell, a Glendale High School graduate class of 1938.

Peering down on the teeming construction site that is the Americana at Brand, developer Rick J. Caruso on Thursday likened the scene to the beginning of a city within a city. The developing city on the inside is his 15.5-acre retail and residential megaplex, complete with restaurants, more than 338 homes, a two-acre public park and a 14-screen movie theater. Outside the walls of the project — which voters approved in a September 2004 referendum in the face of staunch opposition from some residents and its neighbor, the Glendale Galleria — there is downtown Glendale.
