Re: the Rossmoyne historic district. Congratulations! This is indeed good news for the residential neighborhood of Rossmoyne. This will help preserve the integrity of the exterior looks of these charming character homes. All too often, you can see the deleterious effects of poor quality window replacements and other exterior modifications that take away from the original design and attractiveness of these historic homes. My only objection is that the district didn't continue a few more blocks to the east so my neighborhood would be included in this new historic district too. Whistles and applause seem entirely warranted.

Two Glendale men were arrested late Friday after they allegedly burglarized a home and tried to flee, prompting police to lock down a neighborhood. Gagik Manukyan, 38, and Ararat Babakhanian, 44, were taken into custody at about 11:30 p.m. on suspicion of burglary in the 1200 block of Moncado Drive and Ethel Street in the Rossmoyne district, according to Glendale police. Witnesses reported a white Mercedes-Benz sedan with paper license plates roaming the Ethel Street neighborhood, and also noticed activity in a home that was supposed to vacant, police said.

My wife and I are 15-year residents of the Rossmoyne area, living just below Mountain Street on Isabel Street. We love the character of the Rossmoyne area, the beautiful homes, trees and the overall neighborhood feel. We have always believed that the Rossmoyne area was bounded roughly between Maryland Avenue on the west and Glendale Boulevard on the east. We happened to purchase a 1917 version of the Glendale City Directory which indicates the homes in the Rossmoyne area west of Cedar Street are as old, if not older, than the homes in the area east of Cedar Street.

One day recently, I drove over to the Rossmoyne area to talk to a couple who have lived in their house for many years. They showed me an old album, filled with black-and-white photos of Rossmoyne when some of the houses were still under construction and most of the streets were unpaved. I wondered if it was assembled for Alexander Nibley, who developed Rossmoyne. A closer look at the cover confirmed my thoughts. There, I saw several words stamped into the leather: “Rossmoyne 'The Superb,' Nibley Investment Co, licensed realtors, Glendale, California.” The owner of the album, Richard Berry, thinks it was used as a sales tool, as many of the houses were built “on spec.” Berry told me the story of how the album came into his possession.

The Rossmoyne neighborhood in North Glendale officially became the city's largest historic district on Tuesday after the City Council followed up with a procedural vote that cemented unanimous support for the designation last week. Greg Grammer, president of the Glendale Historical Society, described the historic designation as a “crowning achievement” in a statement released before the vote. “This is a major preservation milestone in Glendale,” he said. The vote activated a layer of oversight rules that protect the facades of 504 properties in the neighborhood established in the 1920s.

With the majority of affected residents on board, a North Glendale neighborhood nestled in the foothills is poised to become the largest historic district in the city at nearly four times the size of the other districts combined. The City Council is set to vote Tuesday on giving 504 properties in the Rossmoyne neighborhood historic status, activating a layer of oversight rules and restrictions designed to protect the facades of homes that represent a mix of architectural styles.

Last week, the City Council unanimously approved the largest historic district in the city, covering more than 500 homes in the Rossmoyne neighborhood. Historic districting puts into place a specific set of architectural guidelines and rules that protect the historical nature of the facades of the homes in the area. The Rossmoyne area has an unusually high percentage of homes that have withstood time dating back to the 1920s. The historic districting will help preserve the integrity of this important part of Glendale's history by requiring any modifications to the exteriors of these houses go through an approval process with the Glendale Historical Commission and meet specific guidelines.

Why are so many of our old oak trees from the Verdugo land being cut down? Yes, some, because of disease, but other trees are successfully treated for disease. I think of two oaks in particular that really saddened me. One was on large hillside estate between Rossmoyne and Cortez and the other was on the southwest corner of Stocker and Cordova. That one I remember looking up at and thinking what a wonderful remnant it was of the old Verdugo estate. I thought these trees were protected.

Take a moment to realize the loss GWP has suffered On Jan. 5 and 6, Glendale had the worst windstorm in my 30 years with Glendale Water and Power. The worst, because it took the life of a family member. I am referring to Ralph Rodriguez. I say "family" not because I am related, but because Ralph was a Glendale Water and Power brother to all of us. Ralph never had a bad day; he was always smiling and loved by all. Ralph was called out to restore power to the city during the storm.

Recent mountain lion sightings in the hillside neighborhoods of Glendale prompted city officials on Thursday to release a new website that will allow residents to report wildlife sightings and check out other sightings logged in the area. The site, created by city tech staffers, was designed to track public sightings of mountain lions, bears, bobcats, coyotes and deer, but is not a substitute for reporting an emergency. “We still expect you to pick up the phone and call 911 if you feel you are in danger,” said city spokesman Tom Lorenz.

Glendale is one step closer to getting its sixth historic district after residents of Brockmont Park have worked for three years to get the designation that enacts a layer of protection over 59 homes mostly built between 1910 and 1954. Council members unanimously supported the proposed district this week after an initial review, but their final vote won't come for two more weeks. "When every one of these historic districts come down, I say 'Hallelujah,'" said Mayor Dave Weaver, noting the significance of preserving the individual nature of Glendale's neighborhoods during a City Council meeting on Tuesday.

The first hint that Karis Zavala would become an artist surfaced when she was 18 months old in a “Mommy and Me” class with her mother. Among a group of toddlers, Karis drew perfectly symmetrical happy faces which were noticed by nearly all of the adults in the class, except for Karis' mother, Susan Zavala. “I didn't think anything of it,” she recalled. Now 8 years old, Karis' painting of three large sunflowers recently landed among the top 10 winning pieces out of thousands of entries submitted by children throughout the country and Canada in a contest run by Celebrating Art , a website that promotes the artistic talents of children.
