On most Saturday afternoons in a small garage in Atwater Village, you can stop in for a cup of hand-roasted coffee, lounge on the couch and meet the other customers and friends of the owner who come by - or you can buy a bag to take home. It's not your typical coffee shop, which seems fitting for what customers describe as not your typical coffee. Greg Thomas, owner of Trystero Coffee, has been hand-roasting coffee and serving cups to customers and passersby alike for about three years.

The city of Glendale should not close the traffic flow across the rail crossing at Chevy Chase Drive ("Residents fume at street closure," Tuesday.) This closure would have an inimical effect in north Atwater Village and southwest Glendale. Glendale city officials were invited to attend a meeting on Sept. 19 in Atwater Village to explain the rationale for this proposed closure. I called five times and was finally told by Jano Baghdanian in Public Works that neither he, nor anyone else, would attend the meeting scheduled for that night.

Edward Weston has been the topic several times in the 10-plus years I've been writing Verdugo Views. And, each time, the Weston name gets noticed. The Jan. 12 column on Ivan Forbes' memories of living across the street from the Weston family was no exception. One of Forbes' memories was of watching the Weston boys build a sailboat in the backyard of their home on Perlita Avenue and then later seeing a crane arrive and lift the boat out of the yard. Marilyn Chrisman, who grew up on Irving Avenue in Northwest Glendale and attended Balboa Elementary, said Flora Weston taught school at Balboa for a while, and she and her boys lived on Allen Avenue, south of the school.

Following an outcry from cyclists and walkers over a proposed redesign of the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge, Los Angeles officials sent out a notice saying they will conduct a hearing Monday evening . Holding this  hearing  is a smart move. To this cyclist, and I would guess to many others, the historic and photogenic  bridge  across the Los Angeles River and the 5 Freeway is one of the scariest stretches of road in Los Angeles. And this city, enlightened as it is about making streets more hospitable to walkers and riders, wants to redo it. By making it more dangerous.

If the heart of a bakery is its oven, then Proof Bakery's is ginormous. Really. It's a gas-powered Dalton with double doors and revolving shelves that can fit 18 sheet trays - or 72 pies - at a time. The oven, about the size of a 10-foot U-Haul truck, is 50 years old, inherited with the space, and its quirks provide the cult Atwater bakery its pulse. "When someone first showed me how to light it, you had to fill a basin with gas, light a newspaper and throw it in," says owner Na Young Ma. "It was like 'Backdraft.' "But I have learned to love it.
