Josh Kleinbaum A small but vocal group received a dark victory that will put the spotlight on its neighbors. The City Council on Tuesday night asked staff to prepare an ordinance to regulate excessive light in residential areas. The ordinance will limit the wattage of outdoor light bulbs and require them to be shielded so they do not pour light onto adjacent property. The ordinance stems from complaints from residents that their neighbors' lights are too bright, bothering them and keeping them awake.

Glendale is on track to become an even more vibrant city in the coming years as developments get underway throughout the community - all happening at a time when several other cities are still struggling to climb out of a crippling recession. There are still serious budget issues that must be dealt with, but three City Council candidates from a pack of 12 stand out. We endorse Laura Friedman, Ara Najarian and Sam Engel. Incumbents Friedman and Najarian have been part of a team that has steered Glendale away from a financial collapse, kept the downtown area a strong business hub and maintained the quality-of-life services that make it an ideal place to live and raise a family.

"Neighborhood Services Administrator" - it's a job City Council candidate Sam Engel has been out of for nearly six months, but that's how he's describing himself on the April ballot. Doing so is by the book. Candidates get only three words to describe themselves after their names appear on the ballot. And state law governing ballot titles allows candidates to use a title they have held within the last calendar year. “That's how I'm known in the community,” Engel said. “We thought about using 'retired city administrator' or 'retired neighborhood administrator,' but in the end decided that those were not real accurate.
