Unlike the fried eggs made famous by the Dr. Seuss book, these eggs were scrambled but were green just the same. Students from two classrooms gathered around Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian, whose nephew, Vahe Yacoubian, is a second-grader at the school, as he read "The Cat In The Hat" to start the morning.

Eyes are hurting in La Crescenta What is it about Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta that attracts such cheesy 1970s architectural proposals, such as the proposal for Foothill Building and Lumber (“La Crescenta building OKd,” Friday).
