Regarding the letter to the editor from Robert Morrison in the Sunday issue (“Coyotes belong in these hills,” Sept. 25), I wonder if he would have the same point of view if a coyote or bobcat attacked his “Fluffy,” or his family? Showing such disdain for pet and property owners is disgusting. Glen Forsch Burbank

On Sunday, for the 18th consecutive year, the Ceramic Castle in Glendale hosted a Christmas celebration and gift exchange for patrons and friends. Fifty eight people were invited to the dinner, held in the work room where ceramic classes at the shop normally take place. To make room for the elegantly decorated dining tables, a Christmas tree and gifts, owners Ellen and Bill Francis stored several work tables in the back room. “We've had as many as 80 people,” said Ellen Francis.

Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking. Dressing up to go out for dinner doesn't sound good either. Here's an interesting option. Bring home a pre-made Persian Armenian feast from Old Fashion Deli & Market. Entrees, appetizers, salads and rice are lined up and ready for purchase in small and large containers. Throw in some fresh bread, maybe a ripe melon from the colorful produce section, a bottle of something refreshing from the beverage area and you've got dinner. I first noticed this cute market while sitting on the sidelines of a game at Glorietta Park across the street.

Tim Willert NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Peg and Larry Russell jumped at the chance to host a dinner Sunday night to benefit Glendale Healthy Kids. They even got to turn over the kitchen of their spacious Hollister Terrace home to a group of Glendale Firefighters, who whipped up a meal for 24 guests who paid $50 each. "It just sounded fun having all these guys in my kitchen," Peg Russell said, shortly before guests began arriving. "I don't know whether to be a hostess or a mom."

Advances in low-vision aids are thinning the ranks in a good way at the Foothill Service Club for the Blind. At least that's the opinion of the Oakmont League's Donna Sauer, who put together this year's Luncheon for the Blind at the service club. About 50 blind and limited-vision guests joined a couple dozen league members for a turkey luncheon party last Wednesday. The lunch, cooked in part by league members, was enjoyed by slightly fewer people than in past years. But that didn't stop the fun. The Charismatics from Crescenta Valley High School provided the holiday cheer.

A restaurant patron was arrested Saturday after he allegedly refused to pay for his $46 squid and steak dinner that he claimed was "too rare," and then assaulted workers who tried to stop him from fleeing, police said. Joseph Lee was taken into custody about 8:52 p.m. on suspicion of assault and refusing to pay for his dinner at Zono Sushi in Glendale, according to Glendale police. Most of the incident was recorded on the server's cell phone, police added. Before Lee was released Sunday on $60,000 bail, he reportedly told police he was a first-time customer at the restaurant in the 100 block of North Maryland and was dissatisfied with his meal.

Bubla was referring to the scholarship she was given by the college's Patrons Club.

On Oct. 7, more than 600 supporters walked the red carpet toward the hospital's patio under giant, illuminated prop stars for fun and funds for Glendale Memorial's Emergency Department. Last year more than $8.5 million in charity care was provided to those with no insurance. So big money from the guests was the order of the evening. There were plenty of opportunities for supporters to part with their money starting with a $350 per person meal ticket.
