A 13-year-old mentally retarded boy who was reported missing Monday when he left Roosevelt Middle School during recess was found at Union Station in Los Angeles after boarding a bus in Glendale, police said. Roosevelt school employees reported the boy missing about 10:15 a.m. after he failed to return to summer classes from recess, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The boy was new to the school and wasn't familiar with the area, he added. Police put out an alert for the boy and searched the area, but he was eventually found about two hours later in downtown Los Angeles, Lorenz said.

Starting today, Metrolink will increase the number of trains from four to six on the Antelope Valley Line, between Lancaster and Union Station, which services Burbank and Glendale. On Sunday, Metrolink will begin running three trains on the Antelope Valley Line. “This new service increases the options for our passengers,” Metrolink spokeswoman Denise Tyrrell said.

Responding to an outpouring of criticism from Orange County business, civic and political leaders, California's bullet train agency reversed itself Thursday and voted to pursue a direct service link to Anaheim in the project's initial phase. The commitment came as the California High Speed Rail Authority board, meeting in San Francisco, adopted a crucial $68-billion business plan for the controversial project. When a revised, less expensive version of the plan was released last month, it called for initial southbound service to stop at Los Angeles' downtown Union Station, foregoing long-promised, continuous service to the Orange County area near Disneyland and Angels Stadium.  As an alternative, state officials had said Anaheim-bound travelers could change to Metrolink or Amtrak trains, which would provide improved service on current routes.

Josh Kleinbaum and Jackson Bell Alex Troffey doesn't go to Seattle too often. But when he does, he likes to take the two-day Amtrak train ride, leaving from the Glendale station. So, when Troffey decided on a May trip to the Emerald City, he called Amtrak. This time, he was rebuffed. The Coast Starlight, one of two Amtrak lines that stops in Glendale and heads up to Seattle, will cut Glendale out of its route on April 25 and instead pick up passengers in Van Nuys.

If and when California's high-speed train is built, how fast would it have to go, and how much cheaper would a ticket have to cost, for you to give up flying? I went to Union Station this week, as well as the Burbank airport, to ask travelers those very questions. And I'd like to hear from you too. But let me set things up first. Every time I consider booking a flight from Burbank to Oakland, I think about whether I'd prefer to drive instead. Usually, I go with the one-hour flight, and if there are no delays, I'm always grateful I didn't make the six-hour drive up Interstate 5. But if traffic to the airport is rough, security is a headache and the flight is delayed, I sometimes end up wishing I'd driven.

Jackson Bell Teresa Nance could hardly stomach news reports of Wednesday's fatal train crash. Nance saw her mother, Liz Hill, leave her house early that morning to catch the southbound train to Union Station, but she had no idea if she was dead, injured or OK. Authorities announced late Wednesday that Hill was the 11th confirmed dead after the crash. Nance called her mother's cellphone all morning and checked area hospitals. Nance even stopped by the Glendale Police station, where she and others waited anxiously for updates on their loved ones.

Sitting at the Burbank Metrolink stop, waiting for a train to Union Station on my first day of jury duty, I realize why there are so many cars on the freeway and so few people waiting with me at the station. My Metrolink ticket cost $9. That’s right. The equivalent of 3 gallons of gas. After a quick stop at Glendale’s rustic, mission-style station, it’s only a few relaxing minutes to downtown L.A. There are few things more peaceful than watching the world pass by from inside a train.

Jerry Lane One of the big advantages to living in a major metropolitan area is the access to a variety of entertaining experiences. My wife and I visit all of the major area museums and gardens regularly and we enjoy them thoroughly, but there are a lot of less-formal tours we have taken that have been just as rewarding. Things like the Angels Flight, the Bradbury Building, Angeleno Heights and the Music Center in Los Angeles; the Glendale Central Library and the Doctors' House in Glendale; and the Pasadena City Hall, Gamble House and Old Towne in Pasadena have given us many happy outings.

After my wife graduated from high school, she enrolled in a community college downtown. She wasn't given a car to take her to classes. She, like the rest of her high school classmates, got to her new school the same way she had traveled to her high school -- by public transportation. At that time, taking a trolley car to school or work was the normal and accepted way of getting there. Pat had her choice of three modes of transportation: subway surface car, elevated train and interurban train system.

Run for the Hungry Thanksgiving morning I was finishing my workout, going up Foothill, doing a slow Boston Shuffle. Memorial Park was my goal, and it loomed ahead as a mirage in the desert. Like a slow train from China, I finally pulled into the station. There, testing the speaker system was my good friend and our Mayor, Anthony Portantino. I always enjoy hanging with the Mayor; he reminds me of home, and of course, that..."Life is Good!" "Hey Anthony, paisano...che..
