NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? On occasion this season, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team hasn't played its best and has still won. Wednesday night wasn't one of those occasions. "We just played really sloppy, but we've been able to come back from that before, but tonight we couldn't," said Falcon Coach Phil Torres after his team lost to Sonora of La Habra, 7-5, in the championship game of the 41st Babe Herman Tournament at Stengel Field. In just about every aspect of the game, the Falcons (12-1)

Saturday's event is free and open to the public. The car show will feature 135 cars, ranging in styles from hot rods, classic cars and sports cars to muscle cars, antique cars and trucks.

While a portion of our police force is out finding nefarious drug users (who cause no harm to any but themselves), I find myself routinely watching drivers at the intersection of Kenneth and Sonora nonchalantly ignoring the stop signs, as if doing so is accepted practice. If they are supposed to be “slow down” signs, then make some and put them there, and at all the other intersections in the environs - at least we'll all be playing by the same rules. If not, take some of those drug suppression taxes and lazy cops off what has been proven in countless studies is a useless task.

The car wash going in at Victory and Sonora is absurd, as absurd as saying "neighbors" were notified. We all will be affected greatly by this and we were not notified. The city can say notices were posted, but how strange no one saw anything. And, is there anyone on this planet who has time to sit around and read all those little tiny legally required notices in the paper? Get real Glendale City Council members and planners. Friends and I have spent more productive time recently removing graffiti from the alley between Randall and Garden streets just off Sonora.

Charles Rich NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- For a change, Vahagn Kopalyan became an arm saver. There's more to it than meets the eye for the Hoover High baseball pitcher. Less speed equals greater velocity. Kopalyan used a durable changeup and tossed a four-hitter in a complete-game effort to lead Hoover to a 2-1 victory against La Habra Sonora in an interdivision pool-play game in the 39th annual Babe Herman Tournament at Stengel Field on Monday. The senior left-hander struck out seven to buoy the Tornadoes (10-4)

Sometimes the most unique getaways are off the beaten path a bit, and take a little extra effort to find. Such is the case with the Lazy Z Resort, a place well known by the families who have been visiting the resort since it opened in the 1940’s, but not such a household name for most people. The Lazy Z is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills – Mark Twain country – where interestingly enough a small town was named after a couple of well-known writers: Twain and Brett Harte.

Truck noise concerns must be heard Freeway-adjacent residents, such as those in the Rancho, can sympathize with their brethren who are impacted by the Foothill (210) Freeway and the disruptive truck-braking noise as described in "No to Jake brake, please" (July 10). Rancho residents have waited for years for new sound walls where none exist, or upgraded ones where aging ones stand, to mitigate brain-rattling noise in the area around one of the busiest freeway interchanges in the entire world ?

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? Robert Carrega was the right man at the right time for much of Wednesday's contest. The Hoover High senior first baseman stepped to the plate with a chance to break the game open against Sunny Hills during his first three at bats, but he left four runners on base, which included an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded. However, Carrega more than made up for his previous failures in his last plate appearance. Carrega drew a bases-loaded walk on a full-count pitch with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning to help Hoover to a 4-3 victory in a Babe Herman Tournament contest at Glendale High.

In a step hailed as important by Glendale residents who loathe the noise of train horns, the City Council this week approved putting $9.8-million worth of railway crossing improvements out for bid. The improvements, slated for the Grandview and Sonora rail crossings along the San Fernando Road industrial corridor, will include improved traffic signals, wider roads and better lighting. The bid is set to be advertised in May with construction beginning in October, according to a city report.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Residents who live along the northern end of the San Fernando Road corridor are bracing for tens of millions of dollars worth of infrastructure projects that are scheduled to enter their major construction phases this year. From $7.5 million in railroad crossing improvements and additions to a $32.7-million “flyover” bridge off the Ventura (134) Freeway to San Fernando Road, city officials expect the large projects coming to Glendale’s north industrial corridor to play a big part in transforming the area from drab to luminous.

Sonora Avenue residents want a new city bus route to make a beeline right out of their neighborhood. And they may get their wish sooner, rather than later. The City Council instructed city staffers Tuesday to place a review of Glendale Beeline's new Route 7 on its agenda in the next month, rather than in six months as was originally planned by Public Works officials. A small portion of the No. 7 line had been rerouted last month at the request of merchants in the Kenneth Village area, who argued a loop up Glenwood Road, Sonora Avenue and down Grandview Avenue would better serve their area and increase business.

"City strikes a deal for transportation" (May 8) and "Lake, Western getting greener" (May 9) describe positive modifications to major transit routes in the Rancho and western Glendale areas. These include interchange ramp improvements on the Ventura (134) Freeway at San Fernando Road and at I-5 at Western Avenue, as well as new trees and lighting at Western and Lake Street to benefit the intersection's few merchants, as well as its residents. All of these locations received heightened attention with the advent of the Disney Imagineering "campus" expansion plans, described in a fat Environmental Impact Report, the negative impacts of which were addressed via the labors of a Glendale Homeowners' Coordinating Council committee prior to the final 2001 version and the city's Disney business agreement sign-off.
