any fund-raiser held by a school in La Canada Flintridge and in La
Crescenta. They donate their time, product and proceeds to whatever
the cause may be.
When you're in their restaurant, you'll undoubtedly see someone
you know, especially the teenager who is waiting on you, since the
Hansens hire and train local youths.
If you want to see your patronage dollars reinvested in the
community, then join me at one of my favorite spots, Los Gringos

There's nothing wrong with having a missing tooth or two
Are Glendale Development Services Director Jeanne Armstrong and
Design Review Board member Giuseppi Aliano trying to change Glendale
into another Manhattan?
I was astounded to read "Office building design approved"
(News-Press, Oct. 19-20), in which an eight-story office building is
planned for 200 Burchett St., adjacent to a four-story Embassy Suites
Hotel. Mr. Aliano stated, "On the freeway side, right now, it's like
a missing tooth there. You drive fast, but you see these towers and
there's like a blank spot in there."
I ask, what is so terrible about a little "space" in that area?
Apparently, neither Ms. Armstrong nor Mr. Aliano drive in this area,
which frequently is gridlocked.
It is quite obvious from other projects in the city that
Development Services, Environmental Planning and Design Review all
work in lockstep.

Some homes that have had decades of ivy and flowers are being
decimated by the herds of deer living in the foothills. The deer are
more than merely pests; they are denuding the hillsides behind
people's homes, making the ground subject to weed growth and
consequent fire hazard.
The fire department has a solution: Start over again using plants
