He said April 26 would likely be the last day the business would be open.

Starting Aug. 20, the branch at 1335 W. Glenoaks Blvd. in Glendale will be closed through October as crews install a new heating and air conditioning unit, flooring, furniture, paint, signs, and wire and fencing upgrades, DMV spokesman Armando Botello said. The branch's 51 employees will be reassigned to nearby DMV offices to help with increased customer traffic, he said.

G lendale filmmaker Carly Lyn chose the unlikely pairing of genres — Western and science fiction — in her new film "A Foundling." Lyn, 25, wrote and directed the film receiving its premiere at the Dances with Films festival next week in West Hollywood. Another twist was the casting of two Asian actresses in the lead roles. It was all these elements that piqued the interest of film festival producers, said Leslee Scallon, co-founder of the festival. "We are looking for films as interesting for as many minutes as they are on the screen," she said.

DOWNTOWN — A plan to allow billboard-sized advertisements on the Americana at Brand and Glendale Galleria will go before the Redevelopment Agency today, even as the Americana continues to illegally display a set of large, temporary advertisements, officials said Monday. The shopping centers have applied for zoning changes to gain permission to install the set of ad spaces, but any city concessions for the signs would not affect the Americana’s temporary advertisements for its Excelsior condominiums, for which the mall never applied for an exemption, officials said.

It was the sort of luncheon group that makes every historian and journalist squirm with the regret of being unable to transform into that proverbial fly on the wall. It was a unique moment in the White House when then-President George W. Bush hosted President-Elect Barack Obama, and former Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter for lunch and private discussions on such topics as national security to raising children in the public eye. Fortunately, parents lack that fly on the wall ability as well, otherwise my cousins and I seated around a table at Barney’s Beanery in Burbank on a recent Saturday night might have eaten in silence.
