NORTHWEST GLENDALE — A couple and a 17-year-old driver were taken to local hospitals Friday for moderate injuries after the driver ran a red light, drove into the wrong direction of traffic and struck the couple’s car head-on, police said. The teen, whose name was not released because he is a minor, was driving west on Glenoaks Boulevard at a high speed when he ran a red light at Graynold Avenue, then swerved to avoid hitting another car and hit a curb instead, which sent his silver Infiniti sport utility vehicle into the eastbound lanes of Glenoaks, Glendale Police Lt. Carl Povilaitis said.

NORTH GLENDALE — Two men were hospitalized, one with serious injuries, after a car collision that involved speeding and may have been related to street racing, or chasing, police said. A teenager was driving east at high speeds in a red minivan on Glenoaks Boulevard when he hit a Nissan sedan at about 7 p.m. that was turning left at Concord Street, said Police Lt.

GLENDALE — The unfolding case of Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, who on Christmas Eve killed nine people at a holiday party while dressed as Santa Claus, continued to unravel Tuesday, with police saying a family attorney and Glendale resident may have been one of the intended targets. Glendale police, acting on a tip from neighbors, found a rental car Saturday night that Pardo had left on Glenoaks Boulevard. Police evacuated the north Glendale neighborhood for about five hours. At the time, police did not know why the car was parked there, less than six miles from Pardo’s Montrose home and far from the Covina house where the murders occurred.

Zarian to discuss safety progress Glendale Police Lts. Carl Povilaitis and Gary Montecuollo are scheduled to appear live on ?The Larry Zarian Show? Thursday to discuss the state of traffic safety in Glendale, more than a year after a high-profile hit-and-run case highlighted the city?s abysmal pedestrian safety record. With the hit-and-run murder case of Elizabeth Sandoval, who was killed in July 2007 while crossing South Glendale Avenue near East Wilson Road, still working its way through the court system, the traffic bureau officers are expected to give a progress report on Police Department efforts to stop speeding and enforce crosswalk rules.

Members of the Burbank Police Department, led by four developmentally disabled athletes, handed off the Special Olympics torch to their Glendale counterparts Wednesday in a 5.5-mile leg of a ceremonial run to signify the start of the games Friday in Long Beach.

An aerial view of Northwest Glendale, taken in 1927, showed Glenwood Road as a significant dividing line between a settled residential area and a huge swath of empty land — once filled with vineyards. For many years, the vineyards supplied grapes for a winery on Olvera Street. They were owned by Antonio Pelanconi and his wife, Isabel. After his death, she married Giacoma Tononi. The property was maintained by her son, Lorenzo A. Pelanconi, but when Isabel Tononi died in 1917, the process of settling the estate began.

DOWNTOWN — Commercial property owners may not be required to do extensive landscaping or maintain unique, tasteful facades, but for 41 years a group of volunteers especially keen on clean streets and eye-pleasing designs has been rewarding those who do. That group — known simply as Glendale Beautiful — continued its tradition on Tuesday by recognizing four such property owners and two city park facilities. Not to be confused with the city’s Commission for a Clean and Beautiful Glendale, which mostly recognizes residential structures, Glendale Beautiful formed in 1967 with the mission to recognize commercial property owners in the city that went the extra mile to beautify their buildings and, by logical extension, the city at large, said Gladys Wymore, Glendale Beautiful president.

In response to “Police check under the hood” Wednesday, as one of many classic-car enthusiasts in Glendale, I want to voice my concern about this new crackdown having the potential to negatively affect our hobby. As I have written before to the Glendale News-Press, everyone in Glendale with even a shred of intellectual honesty knows who is overwhelmingly responsible for the roadway insanity that has become so shamefully characteristic of this city. The embarrassing spectacle of kids somehow being able to “acquire” these expensive vehicles leaves most of us working adults scratching (or rather shaking)
