Now that the farmers market in downtown Glendale has been in its new home for more than three months , less than half of the vendors who used to participate along Brand Boulevard are setting up booths at the new venue, according to the market's new management. The farmers market, which used to occupy a section of Brand's sidewalk between Wilson Avenue and Broadway, now operates out of a larger space with more vendors in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church on Maryland Avenue.

  VALLEY GLEN - There is still hope for the Glendale Community College baseball team, but it is fleeting. Much as the Vaqueros' opportunities seemed to dissipate into the hot afternoon, Glendale's chances to return to the postseason waned, as well, on Thursday following an 8-4 Western State Conference South Division loss to host Los Angeles Valley. “Our chances are slim right now,” said Vaqueros Coach Chris Cicuto of making the playoffs. “Obviously, we didn't help ourselves today.” Heading into Thursday, Glendale (20-15, 13-7 in conference)

The City Council approved a 220-unit residential project at the city's southwestern edge this week, despite the developer falling short of prior direction from the dais to reduce density. Tropico Apartments, a five-story residential structure and six-story parking garage at 435 Los Feliz Road, won approval by a 3-2 vote Tuesday, with Councilman Ara Najarian and Councilwoman Laura Friedman dissenting. Before voting, the council rescinded a motion from last month requiring Mill Creek Residential to trim the number of units by 25% . The developer managed to combine only five studio and one-bedroom apartments to create five new three-bedroom units, a reduction of about 2%. Mill Creek's managing director, Michael Genthe, said complying with that request would have killed the deal to purchase the 2.25-acre lot and to build on it. Real estate advisory firm Keyser Marston Associates was hired to examine Genthe's claim and found that at its current density, Tropico Apartments would be valued at $76.2 million after it was built and create a 10% return on investment, said Senior Principal Jim Rabe.

Police are asking for the public's help to find two men who allegedly physically assaulted a 68-year-old Glendale woman during a home-invasion robbery. The woman suffered minor injuries, but she didn't require medical treatment, said Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. The woman was reportedly sitting in her living room at about 10 p.m. April 17, when she suddenly heard noises in the backyard of her home in the 1000 block of North Kenilworth Avenue. Soon after, two men - both described as Latino, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 9 with a medium builds - entered her home through an unlocked rear door and demanded money, Lightfoot said.
