Glendale-based Cage Alliance owner and founder Jerry Hanessian, 34, has always had a passion for mixed martial arts and bodybuilding, and that has served him well when starting his workout apparel business. Sitting in the lobby of Crescenta Valley World Gym in Tujunga, one of the gyms where his apparel is sold, Hanessian said he wanted to expand to apparel that appeals to mixed martial artists and bodybuilders. A bodybuilder, mixed-martial-arts fighter and former personal trainer, Hanessian said most clothing companies offer workout gear for only a medium or athletic type of body — the body type of most professional fighters.

There is a definite difference between clothing choices for casual occasions and clothing choices for dressier occasions. I will define some choices in comparing casual vs. dressier clothing. For example, a sweater (single layer) vs. a sweater set (double layer) means that the choice on the left is more casual than the choice on the right. 1. Application of layers: Single layer; two-plus layers (sweater vs. sweater set). 2. Feel of fabric: satin)

Alexa Capeloto GLENDALE -- A local charity is turning away clothing donations because it has nowhere to store the items. Loaves and Fishes, a nonsectarian aid program run by Glendale's Catholic Charities, is best known for providing food for families out of its pantry. Until last year, it also ran the Loaves and Fishes Thrift Store on Brand Boulevard, where donated clothing and toys were sold to help support the food program. But since the thrift store closed in July 1999 due to rising rent, the group has had nowhere to keep donations except in its own offices.

Bedevian said. ?So I decided to open one up in La Crescenta, since we don?t have much choices up here as far as stores are concerned.? Mademoiselle, at 3442 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta, had its grand opening in April and caters to a European sense of fashion. Its modern decor features polished hardwood floors with pink walls partly covered with black and white damask wallpaper.

After reading the recent article regarding the closure of Mountain Rose Gifts in Montrose (“Mountain Rose Gifts forced to close shop,” March 22), I felt compelled to write in to comment on a few characterizations made in the article. To begin with, the feel of the article seemed to be that business is dying in the nearly century-old Montrose Shopping Park. This is simply nonsense. One look at the sales tax figures for the area and that fantasy explodes into a million pieces.

During the past two years, Dale Dawson saw the end of his Montrose store coming. Month after month, he watched as consumers cut back on their spending and looked elsewhere for their home decor needs, he said. “We used to make money every month, but with the economy we were losing so much money on a monthly basis that even Christmas didn’t recover it,” Dawson said. “That was a factor. It’s like how long do you want to do that?” Dawson will close his store, Mountain Rose Gifts on Honolulu Avenue, at the end of the month as his lease expires and he finishes clearing out his stock.

Forget your old acquaintances, as the song goes, and pay them no mind. Or at least that’s what I thought “Auld Lang Syne” meant when I was in the fourth grade. When I announced this opinion on the “should auld acquaintance be forgot” line to the class during a lesson about the song, my teacher straightened me out with a confused look and quickly moved on to the smarter, more musically gifted children in class. The first time, but oddly not the last, that I would be put in my place by a woman playing the autoharp.
