Tim Willert NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- They are designed to slow motorists traveling through parts of the city's Rossmoyne district. But some residents think the temporary traffic circles on Stocker and Mountain Streets are nothing but an inconvenience and an eyesore. "They force you into the middle of the street and they are extremely ugly," said Judy Lloyd, who lives in the 800 block of Cavanagh Road. "I have no idea why the city did this. It would have to be cheaper to put in a four-way stop sign."

The City Council gave its backing Tuesday night to mixed-use developments in neighborhood centers around the city although it wanted to limit the size of those projects so they wouldn't encroach onto residential areas. City staff members were directed to come up with a lower density level for the developments that are to be part of a proposed land-use plan the council will adopt next year. Without a change in the density, which could allow two- or three-story buildings, council members expected opposition from residents who live near the neighborhood centers.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- Sarkis Sarkissian stepped outside his family's restaurant on Glenoaks Boulevard in the late hours of April 29 for some fresh air. A few moments later, he was joined by his father, Sebooh, who gave him "five" and sat down next to him. "We clasped hands for a couple of seconds," Sarkis remembered. At that moment, the 17-year-old said he felt like everything was going well for his family -- they were a strong unit, their chain of Anoush Family Restaurants were doing well and they were having a house built high in the Verdugo Mountains overlooking Glendale.

I think about those times every time I drive by that location. I used to go with her on occasion. You may have seen Bob Mitchell?s obituary in the paper. There were a few of us Glendalians that sang in the Mitchell Boys Choir. Doug Hopkins, Jerry McCaskill and Harry Clewley come to mind, but there may have been others.
