The candy and tobacco store that opened in the city's main post office in the late 1940s was part of a nationwide movement to provide work for persons living with a disability. In 1947, Postmaster Max L. Green, with assistance from the state and federal governments and the Lions clubs of the area, installed and outfitted a candy and tobacco stand in the post office's lobby. It was operated by Eldon Littell. Green turned the keys of the fully-stocked stand over to Littell, a member of the Foothill Service Club for the Blind, in an informal ceremony that included Mayor Albert C.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As I unwrap the Christmas decorations every year, I reflect upon these words and admire all the ornaments, especially those shaped like candy canes. Candy canes are such a delicious treat, one we enjoyed every year as children while trimming the tree. Although I grew up in a Christian home, I never knew the meaning behind the candy cane until I was an adult. I am sure many of you know this tale, but it’s always nice to remind ourselves of the candy cane legend and reflect upon why we celebrate Christmas as Christians and remember why Christ was born into this world in the first place — to die for our sins.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Like many other children on Halloween, Keppel Elementary School second-graders will be off to trick-or-treat shortly after sundown.

"We want to help all of the kids that lost their parents and family," said student Jack Zierhut. Several of the students' classmates agreed and said they wanted to do more to help those affected by the terrorist attacks.

"The autumn leaves drift by my window -- the autumn leaves of red and gold ... " Don't you just love that song? So sweet! So romantic! Colorful leaves dropping from the trees -- thrilling, unless you have three maple trees shedding their leaves in your yard. You have to clean them off every day, and before you can put the leaf blower back in the garage, the sidewalk is full again. It seems like only yesterday that we bought little rakes at the "five and ten" and watched the kids rake up the leaves into giant piles, then jump into them, rolling around, throwing them at one another and thoroughly enjoying the rustle and the smell.

Walking into Linda Eaton’s Montrose Candy Company store is a lesson in candy history, as everything from salt water taffies and green apple jelly bellies, to hot dog bubble gum, candy dots and Pop Rocks are organized neatly on her store’s shelves. “Look at these!” said Jean Parker of Tujunga, pointing to some salt water taffies. “This would be a nice gift for the guys at work. How cute is that?” The candy store along Montrose’s historic shopping park at 2317A Honolulu Ave. is nostalgic, yet “kind of hip, bringing in a lot of candies that you can’t find elsewhere,” Eaton said.
