Sometimes I get tickets to sitcom tapings and game shows. Most recently I got tickets to "Let's Make A Deal" at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. I invited my wonderful dog-walker Julie Cummins and her 18-year old daughter, Nicole, an adorable actress trying to make it big in Hollywood. Julie and I are both struggling financially, and while waiting in the long line of other costumed hopefuls, we fantasized about what we would do if we got the unlikely chance to make a deal.

The  Perseid meteor shower  is one of nature's most spectacular light shows, and it's happening this weekend. The annual meteor shower will peak Sunday night into the dawn of Monday morning, and at the height of the shower, you can expect to see 100 meteors an hour, the Los Angeles Times reported .  This year, the moon is your friend and will appear as a thin crescent that shouldn't spoil your view of the shooting stars. And just to make you extra excited,  NASA  recently declared the Perseids the  fireball champion  of the meteor showers -- meaning it has the brightest meteors of all the annual showers.

After 50 years in Glendale, Red Carpet Wine & Spirits is pulling up stakes and moving to Arcadia. To some, it's the end of an era. Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz said he bought cigars at Red Carpet to hand out after the birth of his first child. “If you wanted to get a good bottle of wine and pick out a good cigar, that was the place to go,” Lorenz said Wednesday. Opened in 1964 on Brand Boulevard by John Vincenti, the liquor store that specializes in fine wines moved to 400 E. Glenoaks Blvd.

Since its publication in 1965, Truman Capote's “In Cold Blood” has been widely recognized as a seminal work in American literature, frequently appearing on high school and college reading lists. But the contents of the nonfiction novel, which detail the brutal murder of a prosperous Kansas farmer and his family, are apparently too macabre for some Glendale Unified officials and parents who are seeking to block a request by a high school English teacher to add the text to the district's English curriculum.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Virgil’s Hardware Home Center, long known as the quirky source of everything from eggs to 50-year-old door knobs, has been purchased by the owner of Do-It Center hardware stores after 100 years of family ownership, company representatives confirmed Wednesday. Chatsworth-based Neiman Reed Lumber Co., which also owns a Do-It Center in Burbank, informed Virgil’s employees of the buyout during a staff meeting Monday, store clerks said. The change stirred fears among loyal shoppers who often chose the store over other hardware outlets because of its staff expertise, unique selection and sometimes odd offerings.

Elannah Rose Sheklow's parents thought they were doing everything right. They had family dinners. They checked their daughter's homework nightly. They knew her friends. They talked to her about boys, drugs and school. But at 16 when Sheklow confessed she was smoking heroin and had been using other drugs as well for three years, the La Crescenta family's “idyllic life was shattered,” mother Hannah Spring Sheklow said. “I kept wracking my brain,” she told a crowd of more than 100 people who had come to the La Crescenta Library to hear her daughter's story Monday night.

Whole Foods Market is moving its regional headquarters to an eight-story building in Glendale that has sat vacant since it was constructed in 2009, officials announced this week.

It's officially Christmas time at the Americana at Brand, where on Sunday night the switch was flipped on thousands of lights covering the giant white fir towering over the outdoor shopping mall. The spectacle -- accompanied by dancing snowmen, fireworks, “flying” reindeer -- wowed a crowd that at one point apparently reached capacity, with some people reporting on Twitter that they had been turned away after the fire marshal cut the inflow of people. The more than 100-foot-tall white fir Christmas tree, which rolled into the Americana prior to Halloween, was covered with thousands of lights and ornaments for the “Cirque du Santa” lighting ceremony, with acrobatics provided by  Zen Arts.

As the graduating class of Glendale High School walked off Moyse Field, a group of about 10 students spontaneously ran a lap around the track. It was a reminder of the school's spirit that graduation speakers said will lead them to success in life. "We have a free spirit, rebelliousness," said 18-year-old Ani Antanesyan, who was panting from her short run. "We just did it. It's over. Yeah!" A crowd of adoring parents and friends packed the bleachers looking over about 650 students garbed in their school colors — the boys in black gowns and the girls in red gowns.

Nearly one-quarter of Pasadena's African American residents left the city in the last 10 years, replaced mostly by Asians and Pacific Islanders, according to 2010 Census figures. A lack of affordable housing and shifts in the real estate market spurred black families to leave town, according to observers, while Asian families from around the San Gabriel Valley opted for a Pasadena address. The number of whites and Latinos, who together represent more than 60% of city residents, changed little between 2000 and 2010.

The parents of a 15-year-old Crescenta Valley High School student who jumped to his death on campus last year have filed a lawsuit alleging district officials turned a “blind eye” to the bullying that they allege prompted their son to take his own life. On Feb. 10, Drew Ferraro jumped to his death from a third-story building at the school in front of other students. Not long into the ensuing investigation, a Los Angeles County coroner's official said Drew did not reference bullying in any of the “very telling” four suicide notes found on his body.
