Re: "City suspends its sign ordinance" (Sept. 1), in honoring the 1st Amendment, private property rights, etc. Now that the city ban on multiple frontyard lawn signs has been "suspended," does that mean the ban on frontyard fences can't be far behind? Not even if they meet basic design standards, as in height, materials and color? Not even if they're more attractive, not to mention practical, than lawn signs? Not even if the homeowners who flaunted the lawn sign ordinance and engaged the ACLU are among those who customarily, vehemently oppose fences?

Not everybody’s having their signs robbed I read Monday’s story about all the theft of the City Council candidates’ lawn signs (“Verdugo Woodlands reports signs stolen”). It seems like the thievery was concentrated to the north Glendale area (the million-dollar homes) or the more affluent area. Just to point out the difference in areas or locales, I’m in south Glendale. My property is in a very well-suited bend in the road with excellent exposure.

NORTH GLENDALE ? In the race for City Council, the real estate battle for campaign signs has hit a new low. Hundreds of lawn signs have been stolen over the past two weeks, mostly off the front lawns of north Glendale, where multi-million dollar homes have long been considered prime real estate for candidates vying for cache and word-of-mouth support. Several reports have been filed with the Police Department by frustrated homeowners who have had to replace the signs, only to have them stolen a second time.

Josh Kleinbaum With dozens of political lawn signs missing or vandalized, both sides of the Americana at Brand debate are crying foul as tensions escalate for the September referendum. Supporters of the $264.2-million retail and residential project, which will be the subject of a Sept. 14 referendum, said more than 50 lawn signs encouraging voters to approve measures A, B and C disappeared over the weekend. The project's opponents said more than 40 'No on A, B and C' signs have been defaced, vandalized or stolen.

Robert Chacon Foothills Republican Club members are preparing for a large turnout for today's grand opening of their party headquarters on Foothill Boulevard. Volunteers are pinning up banners, handing out lawn signs, notifying people by phone of the opening and laying out campaign literature and stickers. Volunteers began staffing the office at 2908 1/2 Foothill Blvd. last month. "We've had some people come in to pick up literature, but it's been a little slow so far," volunteer Irma Baker said, citing the summer vacation as a reason for the dearth of visitors.

Josh Kleinbaum The city issued 14 warnings to residents this week for having multiple political lawn signs, a violation of an obscure city ordinance that limits residents to one campaign sign per lot. Most of the lawn signs that drew warnings endorsed a vote against the Americana at Brand, a controversial retail and residential project, in the Sept. 14 special election. Critics of the project accused the city of selectively enforcing the ordinance and only issuing warnings to residents with signs against the project, but officials denied the allegation.

Josh Kleinbaum Between television commercials and speech coaches, campaigns for City Council, city clerk and city treasurer are beginning to get expensive. Candidates for City Council have raised more than $280,000 and spent more than $140,000 since Jan. 1, kicking off the race for four available seats in the April 5 municipal election. Candidates for the three city offices submitted campaign finance reports to the city this week. All reports had to be postmarked by Thursday.

Josh Kleinbaum City officials found a rainbow of campaign lawn signs on Monday dumped in the hillsides off of Valentine Drive and Nesmuth Road that officials believe were left by late-night sign thieves. The signs, about 50 in all, bore the names of at least seven City Council candidates, three city clerk candidates, one school board candidate and one treasurer candidate, all running in Tuesday's municipal election. "We're looking at someone that's interfering with the candidates' rights for a fair election," Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

It is election time in Glendale, and as everyone knows and notices, there are many types of election activities taking place. There are various candidates seeking seats on the City Council, the school board and the Glendale Community College board. Some Glendale voters may already be tired of the mailers, campaign literature, TV and newspaper ads, forums and lawn signs — but regardless of our feelings and attitudes, it is an exciting time for our city. As a candidate myself, I appreciate the process and look forward to April 7. Whether one candidate is better qualified than the other will be determined by Glendale voters.

Democrat Chahe Keuroghelian could face thousands of dollars in fines for failing to report media advertising expenses while campaigning for election in the 43rd Assembly District, officials said. His failure to comply with campaign disclosure requirements could leave doubt about the nature of his backing and his spending, said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies. “It’s important for the public to know where the money is coming from and how the money is spent because it gives the information of who is trying to support or oppose the candidate,” Smith said.

For the last couple of years I’ve had the pleasure of compiling the stories that make up our last paper for the year, our Year in Review edition. The process is somewhat tedious as it entails sitting down with every copy of the Crescenta Valley Sun from the past year and picking and choosing the highlights that represent key events in the community over the previous year, then boiling them down to one or two sentences that will hopefully jog the memories of our readers, maybe eliciting an occasional, “Oh, yeah, I remember that.

Reader: Vartanian is best-qualified for clerk This past week, my family received several promotional fliers for city clerk and City Council candidates. Seeing as the elections are fast approaching, we decided now would be a good time to start researching for ourselves just who is running for the highly coveted city clerk position. Because we are all being bombarded by biased election brochures, we feel it is important to do our own independent homework.

Election results -- in case you missed them -- interpreted -- in case you didn't understand them. This has been a costly and trying time for all of us. Friends not speaking; neighbors tearing down each others lawn signs. Rancor in the ranks. The City Council having trouble relating. And Mayor Bob Yousefian misplacing his scepter. It's been a most difficult time. Not the best of times, or the worst of times. A waste of time. And money. And no one -- not the majority of voters, not you or yours, or anyone but the lawyers -- is better for it. Now we hear that you are "keeping (your)
