I?m not real enthusiastic about dressing up for Halloween. For some reason, I just can?t seem to muster the energy required to get it together, even though there?s still more than a week to prepare. About the best I can do this year is wear a terry cloth robe and scraggly beard like my favorite Coen Brothers underachiever, Jeffrey Lebowski. I must point out that I wasn?t always this way. There was a time when I enjoyed Halloween. I was brought up with a much higher respect for the day than I now display.

Halloween pop-up stores have again bloomed throughout Glendale and Burbank - with customers inspecting Spider-Man costumes nestled between bowls of fake spiders - but there is less horror this year, at least for landlords. As the local real estate market begins to improve, there are simply fewer places for the itinerant businesses to land. Glendale-based Halloween Time used to have stores on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose, at Pacific Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard in Glendale and in the former Mervyn's department store downtown, said Patrick Abed, manager of the store on North Brand Boulevard.

Cathy Rosati was carrying an abnormally large chick in her arms Saturday afternoon. Joey, her 13-month-old son, was zipped into a baby chicken costume for the Kenneth Village Fall Festival, smiling and gurgling in the bright yellow, round outfit. “He’s probably like, ‘Get me out of this thing’,” Rosati, of Santa Clarita, said as she bounced him a bit. A small tuft of feathery yellow on the headpiece of his costume leaned in the breeze. Warm weather, early trick-or-treating, raffles, live music, refreshments and a costume parade were some of the highlights at this year’s 16th annual Fall Festival in the village.

Superman waved at the walking gas pump, grim reapers ran down the street with princesses, and an enormous dog dressed in a ballerina tutu sat graciously as children pet her head.

The event, which was co-sponsored by the Montrose Shopping Park and city of Glendale Parks and Recreation Dept., gave community members a safe but spooky way to celebrate Halloween on Wednesday night.

I was at a sales meeting last week, which put me far enough from Glendale to keep me away from the local news. Sure, I could have gone online and checked out the goings-on. But had I done so, I would have missed this morning's online navigation of top stories, which included, “Indecent Exposure, Purse Snatching and Taylor Swift” - a veritable smorgasbord of comment-worthy news. This week, it certainly proved to be fruitful to catch up all at once. In case you were out of town like me, here's what went down: Local residents reported seeing a man masturbating in front of an apartment building.

Regarding Maria Smart's Aug. 9 letter, "Drivers must be slowed," we should all be saddened by the actions of a reckless driver who struck and injured her mother on Glendale roads. However, apparently, Smart did not actually read the two articles in the Glendale News-Press that she sites as she criticizes Councilman John Drayman in her anger at the driver who struck her mother. In the first article, Drayman stated that police resources should be placed out in the community busting speeders and reckless drivers rather than dressing police personnel in rabbit costumes ("Sting like a bunny, April 1)
