Amber Willard GLENDALE -- Gov. Gray Davis on Friday signed a bill sponsored by state Assemblywoman Carol Liu (D-La Crescenta) that allows Korean rice cakes to be served at room temperature. The county's health department had ordered Korean rice cake bakers to refrigerate their wares after preparation due to bacteria growth concerns. Korean business groups argued that the amount of time the cakes are kept at room temperature is not long enough for bacteria to contaminate them.

Red Ribbon Week had a high-energy close at Glenoaks Elementary School Friday night during a PTA-sponsored event that was a meet-and-greet for parents and an all-out dance party for children. This year, Howdy Night, which has been held at Glenoaks for more than a decade, took on the message of Red Ribbon Week, an annual anti-drug campaign that started on Monday. The “Dare to Dance” assembly was one of the new additions to this year’s Howdy Night, where the message was “say no to drugs and yes to dancing,” said performer Christy Lane, who led the students through the popular dances from each decade, starting with the 1950s.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Amid banners and balloons emblazoned with red and blue stars and stripes, city leaders, business owners and residents rang in La Cañada Flintridge's 30th birthday on Thursday. While a few hundred residents dined on an all-American picnic of hamburgers, hot-dogs, corn-on-the-cob, potato salad and watermelon by local restaurant Los Gringos Locos, the 170-member La Cañada High School band entertained with tunes, like the theme from "Mission Impossible."

Linda LaZar Over the past few years, tiramisu cake has been described to me by many people as a delicious dessert. The first time I tried it, I was with a friend, and after tasting it, I told her that tiramisu would not be on my list of favorite desserts, because the cake seemed a little dry. She explained that "true" tiramisu cake is never dry, and I should try it again sometime. So ever since then, I have tried tiramisu at just about every restaurant or bakery that I've visited.

You can't have your cake and eat it too. You know that truism if you've ever purchased a cake from Porto's Bakery; the flavor, the texture and the decoration are so inviting that those surrounding you will salivate before their share is cut. They want a piece of the action. Just like a cake from Porto's, no sooner do you get a tax increase than the lobbyist and the well-connected want a piece of that action. No matter how you decorate that tax increase with flavorful goodies for the common man, the campaign contributor will sure to be next to the celebrant waiting to get his piece cut out of the taxpayer's cake.

At Jane's Cakes and Chocolate Supply in Montrose, three women tried their hand at the art of color flow for the first time. Roberta Fasso-Locke instructed the class, where she learned how to bake and decorate cakes nearly 25 years ago from the shop's former owner, Jane Johnson. On a recent Wednesday evening, the three students - Joji De Jesus of Sunland, Connie Ruiz of Burbank and Lori Salas of Granada Hills - would produce decorations for a beehive-shaped cake they had not yet made.

Joan Crawford won an Oscar in 1945 for her portrayal of Mildred Pierce, a Glendale mother who survived the collapse of her comfortable middle class life in the Great Depression and achieved fame and success on her skills as a homemaker — specifically, her pie-baking genius. It's a dark and melodramatic movie, now an HBO mini-series that started last Sunday. But the real-life story of a Glendale mother who came to America with nothing but the clothes on her back and built a spectacularly successful business on her skills as a homemaker — specifically, her cake-baking genius — is anything but a tear-jerker.

Three candles sat atop a white sheet cake adorned with hot pink and purple roses made of icing. Florence Tuckman leaned forward to blow out the first candle ? an oversized digit in the shape of the number one. Someone pushed the cake closer to her as she struggled to blow out the second candle ? in the shape of a zero. With an extra push, she blew out the last candle and exclaimed ?I?m gonna live forever!? The last candle was a seven. On Monday afternoon, friends and family gathered at Elms Convalescent Hospital to celebrate Tuckman?

Growing up in Southern California, I loved watching Sheriff John’s Lunch Brigade in glorious black & white. The show began airing on L.A. station KTTV in 1952 and featured popular segments including the daily Pledge of Allegiance and Safety Bulletin. Weekdays after kindergarten, I would sit on the floor of our family room in front of our wooden ark-like Zenith console TV and wait for Mom to bring in my wholesome all-American lunch which — if I was lucky — included a deviled egg sandwich on white Wonder bread with the crusts cut off, and a wiggly, jiggly square of orange Jell-O with shredded carrot and pineapple chunks inside.

Crescenta Valley resident Charles Bausback, 86, made his way slowly to the podium last Saturday morning at Two Strike Park after being honored as a Crescenta Valley pioneer at the annual Arbor Day ceremony. “I’m not sure if I’m deserving of this honor,” he told the crowd of more than 250 people who came out for the morning festivities, “but we’ll make the best of it.” Bausback’s recognition was a highlight of a busy morning that celebrated not only tree-planting — the reason why Arbor Day was first enacted over 135 years ago — but the chance for the community to gather.
