Just wanted to say we really enjoyed Lisa Dupuy's article about places to eat in Sunland-Tujunga . It really resonated with the people of the community and also educated some on just how good these mom-and-pop shops around the corner really are. Sunland-Tujunga is not by any means a destination for foodies (for now) but we do have people that truly care about what they are doing. Thank you for raising awareness and hopefully S-T will become a stronger force for tourists (and foodies!

Even the residents of Sunland-Tujunga would agree the community is not exactly a foodie mecca. Still there are some good reasons to head over to this historical, artsy section of our valley. Sure, there are plenty of smoke shops, body shops and wrought iron fences but who knows? It could become the next Eagle Rock. Then you can say you knew "S-T" back in the day. The Back Door Bakery & Cafe (8658 Foothill Blvd.) used to be in Silver Lake but a few years ago they brought their unique brand of daily-made treats to Sunland.

A highly anticipated hearing scheduled in Van Nuys for Thursday, June 7 regarding the installation of a Home Depot along the Foothill corridor in Sunland-Tujunga was shut down by the Fire Marshall after more than 400 people showed up, overcrowding the meeting room. The question by No 2 Home Depot organizers is where did these people, a majority sporting red Home Depot t-shirts, come from? "The Home Depot bussed in a huge group of paid supporters, none of whom were from the Foothills area, in order to present an orchestrated and distorted view of the actual support they have for this project," stated Joe Barrett, head of the NHDC (No Home Depot Campaign)

Regarding Tujunga-dissing by Glendale Councilman Bob Yousefian: I am a dual resident, a homeowner in Tujunga, as well as a homeowner in northeast Glendale, 91201, where I grew up and also raised my son. Bob Yousefian's remark in the News-Press of not wanting Glendale to become a blight like Tujunga was an insult to the Sunland-Tujunga community. In fact, I wish Glendale were more like Tujunga! Tujunga is a tight-knit community whose members communicate and work together for the good of the neighborhood environment.

I read with considerable interest your Sept. 19 article “Trader Joe’s seeks Montrose location,” and would like to give my opinion. For someone who works in Montrose (and who has spent many years living in Montrose), a Trader Joe’s in Montrose would definitely make my life easier. The location in La Crescenta has been an accident waiting to happen with the parking situation, and for years many of us have been asking the employees with hope-filled eyes, “When are you moving to a better location?
