Inside an industrial white building just west of downtown is a place where roosters serenade chickens, hats become ice skaters and cactuses dance toe to toe. Here at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, children sit enchanted by the world of puppets. "There's nothing else like it. I can't imagine what my life would be without it, nor what Los Angeles would be without it," said Alex Evans, a puppeteer and stage manager at the theater. The landmarkat 1st Street and Glendale Boulevard has been entertaining audiences for 52 years.

I walk along the Los Angeles River every day from Glendale Boulevard to Los Feliz Boulevard; either early morning or at sunset. Over the last few years the river has become beautiful. There are all kinds of water fowl and birds living in this section of the river. It is so peaceful, and hard to believe it's so near the Golden State Freeway. Please spend that $100,000 to clean up the river where thoughtless people have thrown all kinds of trash, stuck in the middle of the river.

For the third time in a century, Los Angeles and state planners are trying to reshape Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park to meet Southern California's evolving transportation needs.

Re "Glendale Blvd. Traffic Fix Back in Slow Lane," July 12: All of the solutions offered will do little to really solve the traffic problems on Glendale Boulevard. There is a de facto freeway running through Echo Park because the freeway proposed was never built. Although extending the freeway all the way to Beverly Hills is impractical, why not extend it just down to the Hollywood Freeway between Rampart and Alvarado? Blocking construction of a freeway just because you don't want it in your neighborhood doesn't stop the traffic.

A subterranean gas pipeline undergoing a pressure test exploded along 100 yards of Glendale Boulevard in the Echo Park area Friday, injuring at least six people and damaging several structures on the busy thoroughfare. The test did not involve natural gas--the line was being tested with relatively inert nitrogen--so there was no fire.

After more than a year of dispute, a compromise has been reached on some portions of a $14-million project to ease traffic on Glendale Boulevard, a major thoroughfare into downtown Los Angeles. Some residents in Echo Park objected to the proposed permanent closing of Berkeley Avenue at Glendale and street widening at Glendale and Temple Street, which would endanger some popular tennis courts on the northeastern corner of the intersection.

By Allesandro Street, Glendale Boulevard is teeth-gnashing desperate to get onto the Glendale Freeway. At this last moment, with freedom just in sight, not a whole lot of traffic stops at the little corner mall. Of course, there's not much there. Just a market, a dentist, a video store and the blazing yellow Restaurant Spain.
