Glendale Police Officer Tom Broadway dressed in a pair of shorts and T-shirt, a far cry from the furry Easter costume that he sported a day earlier. On Thursday, he walked back and forth at two crosswalks, one lighted and marked, the other not.

A smiling, pink-nosed Easter Bunny sat on a chair and waved to children as they approached him. Children made their way inside the white-picket fence surrounding the bunny's Gazebo Garden — across from JCPenney — at the Glendale Galleria, to have their pictures taken with him. The Easter Bunny will be available for photos at the Galleria today. Dozens of children and their parents, including Julie Yen and her 3-year-old son, Ethan, stood in line, waiting for their turn to take pictures.

Darleene Barrientos Trying to steadily walk a length of grass while holding a plastic egg with a wooden spoon Saturday, 7-year-old Charlie Kupershmidt declared the egg walk the hardest game at the city's Easter Eggstravaganza. Charlie also liked the basketball and bowling games and the ring toss, but he looked disappointed when he thought about the Easter egg hunt. He did not do as well as he had hoped, his mother Leanne Kupershmidt said. "But at least I got rings," Charlie said.

I would like to thank retired Glendale Police Lt. Don Meredith for expressing the opinions that I totally agree with (“Drayman way off on bunny outburst,” April 2). As a pedestrian in south Glendale, I appreciate any effort to increase the safety in the area. I would also like to comment on the use of the bunny costume. In a sting using a regular decoy, the 20 or so people cited are educated. By using the bunny-costumed decoy you get a front-page story in the newspaper informing many more people.

Despite numerous public outreach campaigns, community meetings, workshops and high-profile crackdowns on hit-and-run motorists, the numbers haven’t let up. In the past decade, 28 pedestrians have been killed by vehicles and 1,078 injured — numbers that have kept Glendale at or near the bottom of the pedestrian safety list for similarly sized cities....

I am shocked and dismayed by Councilman John Drayman’s reaction to a recent pedestrian safety operation conducted by the Glendale Police Traffic Bureau (“Sting like a bunny,” April 1). According to the article in the Glendale News-Press, the operation infuriated Councilman John Drayman, who called the operation a “stupid traffic stunt” that was “breathtakingly dangerous.” Drayman also said city resources would have been more appropriately used to clamp down on speeding motorists — an issue that prompts daily complaints from the public.
