Darleene Barrientos After trudging up the worn, stained, red-carpeted stairs punctuated with set-in gum and blue tape that has lost its adhesive, the Glendale Central Library's Children's Room is a carpeted oasis. That's because the Children's Room last week got much-needed, new, blue carpet -- the first part of the library to be redone in its latest remodeling project. "It looks great," Library Assistant Cecile Pham said Saturday, as she briskly replaced books that had been stored while the carpet was being installed.

DOWNTOWN — The Glendale City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency, authorized city attorneys on Tuesday to initiate legal proceedings to force a South Brand Boulevard carpet store to vacate a city-owned building that is slated for demolition. The city has already relocated the Great Carpet Company once: The 28-year Glendale business was among several that were forced to move in 2005 from spots in what is now the Americana at Brand site. The carpet company and a Rite-Aid pharmacy moved to a city-owned building across the street from the Americana with state-mandated relocation assistance from the city, City Manager Jim Starbird said.

Vibrant carpets were the vehicle for students in Ann Switzer’s fifth-grade class at Thomas Edison Elementary School to learn about math formulas like those for area and perimeter. For two weeks, the students were working on and off to design their own carpets of various shapes and styles and draw them on graph paper, Switzer said. Their colorful rugs depicted everything from geometric designs to dolphins and teddy bears. Students then had to calculate the area and perimeter of their rectangular carpets, and the area and circumference of their circular carpets.

Darleene Barrientos The new Glendale Police Headquarters isn't exactly going down the drain, but after a mishap with the plumbing, officials probably wish something was. An automatic-flush toilet malfunctioned Saturday morning on the second floor of the new building, Glendale Police spokesman Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. But instead of flowing into a drain, the water drifted away from the nearest drain because the tile floor's shape is more like a hill than a ditch.

Robert Chacon With seven children watching, a Roger Barkley Community Center golf instructor Monday modeled a proper golf stance on the section of green outdoor carpet. She lifted her golf club high above her head and demonstrated a perfect swing. Then the students stepped up to their own portions of carpet and mimicked their teacher, albeit with different results. Most clubs clanked hard on the floor, and those lucky enough to make contact sent their balls ricocheting at right angles all over the main activity room at the center.

Alex Coolman NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Designs for an 11-story office building at the corner of Central and California avenues are up for consideration at the Redevelopment Agency Tuesday. The building, referred to as the Millennium Tower, is being designed by the Landau Partnership of Santa Monica for property owned by Maynard Brittan. In place of the apartment building, auto repair shop and carpet store that sit at the northeast corner of Central and California avenues, the project design calls for an 11-story tower of office space and ground-level retail.

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.

The 15-year-old wore a yellow dress with lace and green Converse sneakers. "I've had this dress for a couple of months so I thought I should dress it up with these shoes and make it a new trend," Veronica said. Veronica was one of hundreds of guests who wore their best evening clothes and walked down the red carpet for the Alex Theatre's Academy Awards viewing party.
