CITY HALL — The notoriously lengthy process for opening a business in Glendale will need to be significantly shortened if the city hopes to attract creative arts and media companies to the drab San Fernando industrial corridor, officials said. The City Council last year directed city officials to continue researching the possibility of designating a media and design district within the San Fernando Road corridor, which is already designated a redevelopment area, to encourage economic growth.

Tim Willert NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Organizers of this weekend's first Armenian Expo hope all their hard work bears fruit. Or shoes. Or macaroni. Or mineral water. "It's very important in terms of getting Armenian exports beefed up," said Vigen Ghazarian, a civil engineer who sits on the Armenian American Chamber of Commerce board of directors. "This is not going to make or break Armenia, but it's one way of helping Armenians create jobs." "Made in Armenia," is expected to draw as many as 10,000 people Saturday and Sunday at the Glendale Civic Auditorium.

Last year, media companies including the Walt Disney Co. and Time-Warner Inc., parent of Burbank’s Warner Bros. Studios, spent millions of dollars to help defeat California’s Proposition 24. Now a key part of the measure is back in a different form, pushed by state Sen. Kevin De Leon (D-Los Angeles). Proposition 24, among other provisions, would have eliminated the ability of companies to choose between two formulas for calculating corporate income taxes. In California, companies can choose between paying based on their in-state sales or on a formula that factors in sales, property and payroll.

Robert Chacon Officials at the Crescenta-Canada YMCA are taking a hard look at their budget after workers' compensation costs jumped for the second straight year. This year, the center's workers' compensation coverage increased by $130,000 to $376,000 for the center's 250 employees. Since 2002, premiums have increased by $250,000, sending staff scrambling to look for ways to cut costs. "The increases are so devastating because those numbers mean something is lost, either new programs or staff," said Elena Ksendzov, the YMCA's chief financial officer.

Joel and Ethan Coen's fictionalized look at the New York folk music scene immediately before the emergence of Bob Dylan is, like most of their films, cleverly written and perfectly cast. The only extra in this new release is a 42-minute making-of documentary, "Inside 'Inside Llewyn Davis,'" produced and directed by David Prior. A number of cast and key crew people are interviewed, but, not surprisingly, the Coens, music supervisor T-Bone Burnett, and lead Oscar Isaac dominate the proceedings.

Tucked away on Honolulu Avenue, Montrose Bowl's location is the definition of discreet. Despite the lack of flashing lights or colorful signs to announce its 77-year presence, the spot remains a favorite of locals and film companies. With its blue-green and orange coloring, red vinyl seats, and an absence of electronic scoreboards, the bowling alley is awash in the 1950s. A popular location shoot for many films, including “Teen Wolf” (1985), “Frankie and Johnny” (1991), and most recently Clint Eastwood's “Jersey Boys” (2014)

Glendale is set to spend $3.1 million to reduce how long electricity outages last, following a unanimous City Council vote approving a contract with a utility integration company Tuesday night. The expenditure is set to cover one of the final projects related to Glendale Water & Power's roughly $70-million modernization project, which included replacing analog meters with digital ones and a first-of-its-kind $20-million grant from federal stimulus funding earmarked for smart grid improvements in 2009.

Were divisiveness, anger and protests the anticipated outcome of placing the comfort-women statue in Glendale's Central Park? Was this, at least in part, supposed to be an antiwar statement? Whatever the intentions were, this memorial has slipped into a blame-game, finger-pointing arena, with the city caught in the middle of an ongoing dispute between Japan and Korea. Is it one thing for us to say, “We did that to them,” and erect a memorial to illustrate our own bad behavior, and another to say, “They did that to them”?
