GLENDALE ? Standing outside the Glendale Galleria Mervyns early Saturday morning was an eager crowd gathered on the sidewalk before opening hours. But with the busiest shopping day of the year more than two weeks past, these shoppers were not there to beat the holiday rush. And when the front doors of the store opened, 27 children would roam through the store on a one-hour, $100 shopping spree. The "Holiday Child Spree," put on through a cooperation between Burbank Jaycees, the Burbank Temporary Aid Center and Mervyns, gave underprivileged children a chance to stock up on much-needed winter clothes, just in time for the holidays, said Burbank Jaycees President Elana Edelstein.

With lights flashing and sirens blaring, Glendale firefighters roared into the Americana at Brand Monday night and whisked away brothers Juan and Gerardo Rodriguez. The maneuver wasn't part of an emergency rescue, but rather the fulfillment of a wish, the 10th such wish to be granted this holiday season by the Make a Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles. Both brothers, who live with their family in Inglewood, are being treated at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles for life threatening illnesses.

The folks who stayed to the bitter end of the Glendale City Council's nearly 10-hour showdown over the proposed Town Center development were treated to quite a show, including a film premiere, announcement of a new name for the project and about 180 speakers. What they didn't see was the end to the four-year effort to approve a new open-air shopping mall for the Glendale central business district. General Growth Properties, by many on hand the group designated as the villain in this smackdown, officially protested the project, along with tenant Robinsons-May.

GLENDALE — Alexa Moreno finished her school shopping under budget, so she returned to scour the aisles of Target on Tuesday, looking for more back-to-school supplies. She found a dolphin binder, which she said would be among the more critical items when she begins her first day of school in fewer than three weeks. "I got a lot of stuff, a lot a lot," the Edison Elementary School first-grader said. "I wanted lots of things because I like school and shopping. " By the end of the day, the Glendale Galleria Target had donated at least $2,550 in school supplies and clothes.

Michele MacNeal began Monday morning with an empty garage. By next week she expects it will be filled with several thousand shoeboxes. But MacNeal is not a shoe aficionado, nor is she going on a shopping spree — the boxes are not even for her. MacNeal is collecting children's gifts at her La Crescenta home as part of Operation Christmas Child, a project of an international charity called Samaritan's Purse. The project collects gifts wrapped in a shoebox for needy children throughout the world.

Sidewalk contest is off to a great start It would seem that our good neighbors throughout the city of Glendale are indeed on the trail of the oldest sidewalk contractor imprints. On day two of the Glendale Sidewalk Treasure Hunt Contest more than a dozen and a half responses had already come in by mail and telephone from all across the city. We have even received two responses from residents who do not live in the city of Glendale, but have found sidewalk contractor imprints in the unincorporated part of La Crescenta (unfortunately the contest as stated applies to the city of Glendale)

Pedestrians will soon have a chance to find the oldest sidewalk in the city. The Montrose Shopping Park Assn. is sponsoring a month-long contest to find the oldest sidewalk contractor imprint beginning Aug. 15 . "There is no comprehensive list of these imprints," association President John Drayman said. "We will find out what the oldest is. We do know they go back to the early teens and '20s." The association was inspired by a letter to the editor in the Glendale News-Press by Robert Thompson seeking more interest among residents in the community's local history, Drayman said.
