Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- When Glendale Police Lt. Don Meredith went out to see the new signs on the Ventura Freeway memorializing slain Officer Charles Lazzaretto it brought a tear to his eye. "He was a good friend," Meredith said. "He was a super nice guy who always had a smile and something nice to say." Assemblyman Scott Wildman pushed through legislation last year that renamed a stretch of the Ventura Freeway from the Glendale Freeway to the Golden State Freeway after Lazzaretto who was killed in the line of duty in 1997.

A collision led to the spilling of radioactive medical supplies on the freeway. Cleaning up the mess snarled traffic for miles through Friday morning, officials said. Henrik Zohrabians, 39, of Glendale lost control of the 1994 Geo he was driving at about 5 a.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Jaret Paulson said.

A Venice man died after being shot by an unknown assailant on the connector road from the Foothill (210) Freeway west to the Glendale (2) Freeway south early Wednesday. At around 2:30 a.m., about a half-hour after the shooting took place, both north and southbound sides of the Glendale Freeway were closed, as was the transition road from the westbound Foothill Freeway, creating a traffic nightmare for local commuters. A stream of red brake lights wove from the Angeles Crest off ramp, snaked through the city of La Cañada into Montrose and trailed down Glendale as commuters tried to find a way to the Glendale Freeway.

Much like the Hollywood sign, the large white letters tower on a hillside. Unlike the iconic landmark nearly 11 miles away, this new sign on a squat hill near the Glendale (2) Freeway doesn't evoke glitz and glam. It poses a question - a socio-political one - to commuters. "LIBERTY?" Ironically, a sign eliciting doubt about one's independence from authority has gotten the owner of the site in trouble with government officials. Although the sign, which has been up for at least two weeks, overlooks the interchange between the northbound so-called Glendale Freeway and the westbound Ventura (134)
