Don’t rush to embrace vinyl windows. Just because they’re inexpensive doesn’t mean that we have to live with them! Evelyn Tan tried to stir sympathy for ugly windows just because homeowners can’t afford nice-looking ones (“Can’t rush judgment on vinyl,” Aug. 1). But her argument fails to consider at least two important points. First, who says you have to replace old windows? Secondly, our neighborhoods are attractive in large part because of their cohesive, richly detailed architecture.

The two dancers turned slowly and struck poses in silhouette behind the green strips of vinyl suspended 15 feet above from an alcove near the art gallery’s ceiling. They were rehearsing for the opening reception of the art exhibition, “Circle in the Square,” tonight at Brand Library Art Galleries in Glendale. The show features installations created out of vinyl by Cheryl Walker, such as the artificial waterfall the dancers were under in the center of the gallery and a stain-glass effect covering the gallery’s windows.

Over the last decade Burbank has seen the music chains Virgin Megastore, Sam Goody and FYE disappear as consumers shifted from buying CDs to downloading their music online. However, two independent record stores started in the '90s have managed to thrive in the city as a new generation of music fans discovers vinyl records while faithful repeat customers keep coming back. Atomic Records on West Magnolia Boulevard has found success by sticking to its original game plan of specializing in used vinyl records.

CITY HALL — In a city where $9.7 million in city budget cuts rarely drew more than a few public comments per hearing, it was regulations for residential window replacements that drew out the masses Tuesday as the City Council revisited its design guidelines. The topic took two hours of public debate and comment alone as homeowners and historical preservation advocates pushed for or against the contentious item du jour at City Hall — vinyl window frames. “We cut [$9.7 million]

It is distressing that Glendale resident Becker Danson encourages window replacements, illegal and otherwise, to make our city more energy-efficient ("It ain't easy being green in this city," May 14). This not only endorses the willful violation of city codes, but indicates, as well, a serious lack of environmental awareness. Far from being "green," the cheap vinyl and aluminum windows that are spreading like a rash all over Glendale are, in fact, contributing to the degradation of our environment.

Remember, not all have health care I am happy to hear that Robert Gregg (?Marching to the same health tune,? July 30) has good health care, but thousands of U.S. citizens don?t, and that is why there must be a change in our system. Gregg may not see anyone going to other countries, but if he were to listen to the news, he would certainly hear about hundreds of Americans who are forced to go elsewhere for medical and dental treatment that they can afford.

Is there is anything objectionable about the use of artificial turf in residential landscaping (“Council to consider fake turf,” Aug. 14)? On Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the company that makes AstroTurf has just entered into an agreement with the state of California to reduce the quantity of lead used in its products. The article stated that lead has been used to keep green colors from fading in artificial turf and that people absorb harmful levels of lead through their skin, or by touching the turf and then touching their food or mouths.

Attendees at an exhibition got the chance to participate in a work of art Saturday at the Brand Library Gallery. Dancers molded their bodies into shapes imagined by a Los Angeles-based artist and led audience members at the exhibit opening of “Circles in the Square” to the gallery’s windows, where they could take part in the exhibit by placing vinyl pieces on the glass. The pieces were abstract shapes created to represent different aspects of the earth’s environment and ecosystem.

Glendale?s Design Review Board #2 has approved a proposed addition to a home on Altura Avenue which is three times larger than the existing structure. The home is a 942-square-foot structure on a flag lot at 3427 Altura Ave., not visible from the street and accessed by a 210-foot driveway. The owner, Zoric Shahbazi, said he wanted to build a 2,029-square-foot addition to meet the needs of his family. Review board members had some design questions, but decided the fact that the addition was not visible from the street made most issues moot.
