Thank you to letter-writer Lee Cohen for writing to express dismay at the gun show held at the Civic Auditorium this past weekend. I also live in the area and was appalled to once again see the huge banner [advertising the show] on the corner as I made the left turn from Glendale Boulevard onto Mountain. Why would the city of Glendale support this exhibition year after year? The auditorium is a public building and should not be used to promote the sale of weapons. The gun show's website reveals that another show is scheduled for Nov. 17-18, with three more weekends scheduled for 2013, all with the notation that “kids under 14 are free!

SOUTH GLENDALE — Officials on Tuesday heralded the addition of two affordable housing developments at the city’s southernmost edge on San Fernando Road that will eventually add 140 apartments to a mostly industrial area. “It’s part of an overall strategic plan for the city,” Councilman Frank Quintero said at the ceremony dedicating the 68-unit Glendale City Lights, at 3673 San Fernando Road. The $36.4-million project received $9.8 million in city assistance and is already occupied.

I have been a participant in the Glendale Cruise Night since its inception nine years ago. This year, I had my blue 427 Cobra replica parked in front of Moro Beauty College, near the south end of the Cruise. I have some ideas to help streamline the process of getting the participants' cars onto the Cruise Night site, especially when the event does not open on time. At 3 p.m.: Only allow participants cars to turn south onto Brand Boulevard from the westbound 134 Freeway.

Say it ain’t so! (“Strip mall still coming” — Crescenta Valley Sun, Jan. 11). Upon reading that the historic and charming May-Lane/La Crescenta Motel on the corner of Foothill and Briggs is going to be turned into yet another strip mall — another stucco scar on the boulevard — I threw down the newspaper in frustration and disgust. Now, after stewing over this latest depressing development (pun intended) for a few days, I’m wondering: Why stop at simply cramming another unnecessary retail strip mall with too few parking spaces and too many non-English-language signs?

KATHERINE YAMADA Fourteen years after the Famous Department Store opened on Brand Boulevard, the store published an ad in the local newspaper. The ad carried a personal message from the store manager, Albert F. Baudisch, thanking Glendale for its patronage and loyal support. "The growth of the Famous keeps step with the ever-advancing city of Glendale," the 1936 ad read. Baudisch's daughter, Bea Fricker, told me that her father's entire career was with the Famous.

More than 130 seniors got an early start on bringing in the new year at Glendale?s Adult Recreation Center on Thursday. Lunch was a hardy roast-beef-and-mashed-potatoes plate, topped off by a decadent chocolate mousse. A strong brew of Folger?s coffee accompanied dessert. No decaf for this crowd. DJ Danny ?Neptune? Konyalian got the music off to a rousing start with the distinctly un-New Year?s Eve Beyonce?s ?All the Single Ladies.? But there were more than single ladies at this gig. Several men took their turns on the dance floor.

There will be no animals at the Ramos Bros. Circus set to return to Glendale next week after city officials requested that the zebras, horses and other four-legged performers, except dogs and cats, be kept out of the show, partially because a camel escaped last November , causing a hullabaloo on Glendale Boulevard. The getaway camel, which was eventually caught after a one-block pursuit, brought criticism from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which at the time called on city officials to revoke the circus' permit to operate in the Civic Auditorium's parking lot.

Traffic is moving on the Brand Boulevard of Cars, as local auto dealers say national sales numbers for major manufacturers are an accurate reflection of what they are seeing in showrooms. "Not since January of 2008 have we had this strong a month," said Jeanne Brewer, general manager of Acura of Glendale. Asked what spurred the shift, Brewer joked, "I don't know, but I've told everyone, 'Don't change a thing.'" On Tuesday, the nation's largest car manufacturer, General Motors, reported sales 6% higher in December compared with the year prior for its core brands, including Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick.
