Porto's had a fundraiser to send aid to the Philippines ravaged by a typhoon in November and raised a total of $10,000 from sales of baked cheese rolls at three stores - Glendale, Burbank and Downey, said Betty Porto, vice president of community relations. It was a group effort, she added. Employees came in early to make cheese rolls and more than 60,000 were sold. Proceeds went to the Red Cross to help the Philippines. The cheese roll was chosen as the best product to sell for the fundraiser because it is the No. 1 item purchased by the store's Filipino customers, Porto said.

NORTH GLENDALE — Nearly three weeks after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake killed up to 200,000 Haitians and left roughly a million more homeless, a 15-year-old Glendale boy staged his own Haiti Relief Concert. Multicolored flashing lights, backup dancers and a sound system promised to bring each of his neighbors into the courtyard of the gated apartment complex in the 1100 block of Thompson Avenue. Harut Kazaryan, a freshman at Hoover High School, had fashioned a white banner over the swimming pool railing to reflect the strobe light and trained a rag-tag troupe of younger dancers to perform his signature brand of choreography.

It’s that time of year again. The time when those who are more fortunate start thinking about ways in which they can give back to the community. Of course, I’m speaking of property tax time. That biannual festival when the lucky home owners of America pay a small percentage of our hard-earned money back to the government so that things like schools, roads and social services can function for the good of everyone. For the record, I’m one of those liberals who neither resented nor felt the extra tax was unfair.

Rockhaven Sanitarium traces its history back to the end of World War I, when a registered nurse named Agnes Richards made her way to California after serving with the American Red Cross in Europe.

Disturbed by the lack of sensitivity in the treatment of women in state-run facilities, she vowed to open her own place, a haven, she later wrote in a sanitarium pamphlet, ?for the sick and weary where the air was clear and pure and the sun shone warm, high enough to be above the fogs of the lowlands.

If you don’t want to be rendered the center of attention at a stand-up comedy performance, don’t sit ringside, and don’t admit you’ve been married 50 years. One septuagenarian couple amiably found themselves setting the tone for the evening of sharp, PG-13-rated humor Sunday at Fritz Coleman’s 18th annual Comedy Night at the Glendale Centre Theatre. The event benefited the Glendale-Crescenta Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross. Ron Farina, executive director of the Red Cross chapter, opened the performance, reminding the audience that the Red Cross had some not-so-funny responsibilities in August and September, maintaining shelters and evacuation centers during the Station fire.
