Wondering what to do with your political lawn signs when Tuesday's municipal election is all said and done? Unless you want them as keepsakes, city officials say the signs are indeed recyclable. The signs can be placed in gray recycling containers, but wood posts should go in the green yard trimming containers, said city spokesman Tom Lorenz. Signs can stay on private property as long as owners want, but if code enforcement officials find signs on public property, they will be removed.

There are a couple of things that seem confusing about the city's ban of gun shows on public property. First, how does the city just “cancel” a two-party contract? Second, how do they plan to replace the $60k or so in revenue? Let's hope they don't raise the electric rates and pilfer the money from there. Donald Cameron Glendale

Because of public pressure, Councilwoman Laura Friedman and her colleagues a few months ago decided to ban the gun show on public property because it sent the wrong message to the community. Reasons cited were that the gun show was near the college, in a residential neighborhood, and sold guns and ammunition. However, according to our chief of police, in all the years the gun show was at the civic auditorium, there never were any law-and-order problems. Recently, Friedman told the public that if we really want to get the wedding business, we need to make sure people should be able to serve drinks on public property.

I am taken aback as to why the News-Press called the monument story the number one news story of the year when the more important news was that the Glendale City Council passed a city ordinance to allow alcohol to be served on public property for the sake of generating revenue. What is the message the council sends to the public when it promotes alcohol usage? The comfort women monument was a political issue, but how does that issue affect Glendale citizens every day when they drive the streets of Glendale?

Re: “ Allowing alcohol sends wrong message ,” Mailbag, May 8. Mike Mohill hit the nail on the head. He brought up very salient points in reference to the council's decision to allow alcohol at weddings on public property. The council is asking for more problems. Don't we have enough problems without encouraging more? In addition, there are many private venues available for functions of this type. If they want to ban something, they should ban the sale of alcohol in the city of Glendale.

The gun show happened, thankfully without incident. But at what cost? I spent a lot time in that block on Saturday, March 2. I watched protesters, press conferences, attendees and police. I watched people walking about with guns strapped to their backs. I saw loads of ammunition being carted out of the auditorium. I stood in front of my college and watched people scream and shout that their rights were being dismantled. And I paid for it. Every one of the citizens in Glendale paid for that gun show in taxes and reputation.

My friends, neighbors and fellow members of the Coalition for a Better Glendale are proud of our city for ending its association with the Glendale Gun Show. When the City Council voted 3-2 to adopt the ordinance banning the sale and possession of guns and ammunition on public property, Glendale officially recognized the gun show for the dinosaur it had become. Mayor Frank Quintero, Councilmember Rafi Manoukian and Councilmember Laura Friedman deserve our thanks for resisting the out-of-touch, editorial-page call of this Los Angeles-based newspaper, and for standing up for their community - for our community.

This story has been corrected. See details below. An 1,100-pound statue honoring hundreds of thousands of women taken as sex slaves by the Japanese Imperial Army decades ago is traveling by boat from South Korea and is just days away from arriving in Glendale, where it may become the first statue honoring the so-called "comfort women" on public property on the West Coast. The memorial, like others on the East Coast and in Korea, has sparked controversy as opponents from Japan have emailed dozens of letters to City Council members in an attempt to block the statue from being placed in Central Park near the Adult Recreation Center.

The Supreme Court ruled last week that a city in Utah did not have to display a monument from an obscure local religious group in a public park, even though the park contained a display featuring the Ten Commandments. The religious group, known as Summum, argued that if the city displayed a Christian message on public property, it had an obligation to give all other religions equal space. The court, however, ruled that the 1st Amendment does not cover the right to erect a park monument and that the government could not be expected to appease every group in a community in that regard.

CITY HALL ? A proposed law up for consideration at Tuesday's City Council meeting could spell the end for the Glendale Gun Show, a fixture at the Glendale Civic Auditorium for decades. The ordinance, which was requested by Mayor Rafi Manoukian, would ban possession or sale of firearms and ammunition on city property, including the Civic Auditorium. The law provides an exemption for possession of firearms by police officers, security guards, persons holding valid firearms licenses, members of the military and authorized participants in a motion picture or theatrical production.

GLENDALE — Replacing a playground structure that was set on fire last year could take longer than expected as city officials wait for two teenage boys who set the blaze to pay the $105,639 needed for the work. The boys, aged 13 and 14, were ordered on Feb. 25 to pay the city $105,639 to replace the refurbished playground at Glorietta Park, officials said. But repayment could take awhile since the boys’ families must first come up with the funds, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
