A Los Angeles law firm has agreed to represent the city of Glendale for free in its defense of a statue honoring women taken as sex slaves for the Japanese Army during World War II , the installation of which has been called into question by a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court last month. This is the first time in at least three years that a law firm has represented the city on a pro-bono basis, said City Atty. Mike Garcia.

The embarrassing display of councilmen positioning themselves to be next mayor highlights the need to change the way Glendale selects its top leadership (“Glendale delays naming new mayor,” April 4.) The current practice is such a relic of the past that it's like having our own dinosaur exposition. For many years, those of us who have observed these proceedings unfold interpreted the trading of favors as preconditions to the selection of mayor. It seems to us that with Glendale's representation in the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the Metropolitan Water District and the Bob Hope Airport commission, the game of naming the next mayor hinges on who is promised each of these coveted seats, all of which give council members a voice on big, and sometimes huge, public contracts.

The Bots are as surprised as anyone about how things have gone with their little band. A few years ago, brothers Anaiah and Mikaiah Lei were a couple of Glendale kids who just wanted to rock 'n' roll , and called themselves the Bots. It turned out they were good. The band began as a trio playing "indie acoustic folk," but evolved into a euphoric garage rock duo by the time the Lei brothers were signed up to play on the Vans Warped Tour in 2011, bouncing onstage to a sound of bristling guitar and drums in white shirts with black ties.
