At least 15 vehicles and motorcycles have been stolen off Glendale streets in the past two weeks, although police say the figure doesn't necessarily represent a trend. Police officials say they haven't established any leads, or made any arrests in connection with the thefts, which have been occurring at rate of about one a day since Aug. 29. Few details about the thefts and the types of vehicles were released because the cases were under investigation. “As for the methods, number of suspects…it really varies,” Glendale Police Sgt. Dave Higgins said in an email.

Except for a few more vacant stores, not much has changed over the past 12 months on the 15.5-acre site between Brand Boulevard and the Glendale Galleria, an area city officials want to transform into a shopping hub. Big Five Sporting Goods is still open, at least for another few weeks. Old Fire Station 21 still stands. Harvard and Orange streets are open to through traffic, just as they were at the start of 2004. But for the past 12 months -- and maybe the last 25 years -- nothing has dominated the Glendale news like the on-again, off-again saga of the Americana at Brand, a controversial proposed shopping mall that has turned into a soap opera.
