Police on Monday were investigating the theft of 21 boxes of Crabtree & Evelyn merchandise from a delivery truck. A driver reported there was no room in the Glendale Galleria's loading dock, at 100 S. Orange St., so he parked his truck on the street, according to police reports. He took a delivery to the store, but when he returned he discovered his rear door open and the boxes of the luxury bath and body lotions and creams worth $4,166 missing, police said.

Let me understand this: We have a pedestrian who bolts out against the red light into a large oncoming truck, she gets totaled, and some brain surgeon writes that the solution is to ticket more motorists. Amazing (“70-year-old woman struck by delivery truck in Glendale,” Sept. 7). His other “remedy” is to jaywalk in mid-block. There's nothing like jumping out between two parked vehicles into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Other than driving in Rome, I have not witnessed more offensively aggressive - or brainless - pedestrians than in Glendale.

As scenic neighborhoods in Glendale go, the Marion Drive portion of Adams Hill is pretty nice. Many of the comfortable, single-family homes that line the winding, hilly thoroughfare rise up and away from the street, affording their owners impressive views of south Glendale and into downtown. Most of the properties are well cared for, it's quiet, and dozens of walkers use Marion as a safe route during their morning constitutionals. Safe, that is, until a car, utility vehicle or delivery truck needs to get by. Then scenic, idyllic Marion Drive becomes a hazardous asphalt sluice, as drivers try not to hit the many cars parked along the curb, and pedestrians scramble to get out of the way of oncoming vehicles, or squeeze themselves between parked cars and those forced to dramatically slow down or stop in the middle of the roadway.
