A pair of day-old chicks waddled on top of a desk at Discoveryland Preschool on Wednesday when Christopher Esparza and James Gordon started singing, "Happy birthday to chicks, Happy birthday to chicks?. " About 30 chicks hatched out of their eggs on Tuesday after spending weeks under an incubator light in the classroom, as Christopher, 4, and James, who turned 5 on Wednesday, and five of their classmates waited breathlessly. Britney Nies, a 4-year-old with a long, braided, red ponytail and gleaming blue eyes, felt a special attachment to the chicks.

It came down to a hunt for three golden eggs Saturday. More than 40 children scurried all over the grassy portion of Two-Strike Park Saturday afternoon searching out hundreds of multi-colored plastic Easter eggs. The main prize, three golden-colored eggs, were strewn among them. The hunt, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, was the second in two egg hunts at La Crescenta parks Saturday ? one at Two-Strike Park and one at Crescenta Valley Park, which was the more well-attended of the two. Children, some as young as 18 months and some as old as 12, toted their baskets and participated in the hunt at Two-Strike Park.

When I was growing up, the tradition of dyeing eggs for Easter and breaking them at the churchyard or the school playground seemed a uniquely Armenian one. That was easy, as I spent some of my early teenage years in a predominantly Muslim country. Any traditions that had to do with Christianity were synonymous to being Armenian. Easter was one of my favorite holidays as a child. It was a symbol of spring and it brought hope for being released from the grueling workload of private school.

Claudia Peschiutta OAK RIDGE - The eggs have fallen. Decorated boxes and balls and other strange contraptions carrying eggs were flung out of a third-story band room window at Glendale Adventist Academy Thursday in the name of science. Students in teacher Brian Snarr's physics class spent more than two weeks preparing for the school's fifth annual egg drop. They worked out plans, found materials and tested their contraptions to see if they could minimize force and reduce momentum enough to have their eggs survive the fall and hit the target on the playground below.

For eight days last month, Crescenta Valley High teacher Christina Engen took night hikes in a Costa Rica jungle, observing leatherback sea turtles that were laying eggs along the coastline of the Pacuare Nature Reserve. Through Ecology Project International, the science teacher was one of two instructors from California to join more than a dozen other teachers from across the country who received fellowships to learn about Costa Rica's diverse ecology. While at the nature reserve, she worked alongside 18 researchers to track over 6-foot-long leatherback sea turtles as they came to shore to lay their eggs.

Don't read this column. I don't mean to suggest that this column contains no useful information. It's worse than that. This column accomplishes the scientifically improbable feat of offering good information that actually sucks knowledge right out of your head ? a black hole of the brain certain to be the subject of an upcoming Stephen Hawking book, once I tell him about it. I'm talking about the choice between "A box of eggs is on the table" and "A box of eggs are on the table."

Chuck Benedict The day after a holiday can be a time of emotional letdown. Yesterday, Christians focused on the joy of Easter as the key to their faith. ("He is risen.") There's something about an upbeat holiday family gathering that lifts us above the hum-drum of routine calendar days. But, after a special day like Easter, the pendulum often swings. Like a plane descending from a fast ride, the lift is gone. From a lighter perspective, Easter Monday simply can mean, "What do we do with all these dyed eggs?"

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Don’t worry: The eggs aren’t going anywhere, the new owner of Virgil’s Hardware Home Center said Friday. When loyal customers of the family-owned 103-year-old hardware store learned of its sale to Chatsworth-based Lumber City Corp., the owner of California Do It Center, they were concerned the local gem would lose its quirks and become more like its bigger, corporate counterparts. To customers, Virgil’s, located at 520 N. Glendale Ave., is known for its unique selection of goods — everything from eggs and sauerkraut to vintage, one-of-a-kind hardware fixtures.

Twinkies and Ding Dongs are long gone at the former Hostess bakery near Glendale, where a new tenant is moving into part of the vacant building and staking its claim in the Los Angeles online organic-food scene. Good Eggs L.A. opened its distribution center this month just steps away from the Los Angeles River at 2760 Clearwater St., south of the Glendale (2) Freeway. Now fresh fruits, veggies, eggs, meats and seafood are replacing the sweet confections made by the prior tenant. “Our mission is to grow and sustain local food economies,” said Max Kanter, community builder at Good Eggs, a company that works with about 70 Southern California farmers and food producers to deliver online groceries to customers throughout the Los Angeles area.

FRESNO - A mosquito that can carry dengue and yellow fever has been found in California, prompting intense eradication efforts in the Central Valley and warnings from officials about how to keep the pest from spreading. "It could change the way we live in California, if we don't stop it," said Tim Phillips of the Fresno Mosquito and Vector Control District. "Imagine not feeling safe to sit out in your backyard in the afternoons. " The yellow fever mosquito, or Aedes aegypti - a white polka-dotted bug that bites during the day and can lay its eggs in less than a teaspoon of water - was first detected in June in Madera, the Los Angeles Times reported . "We were shocked," said Leonard Irby, district manager of Madera's abatement program.

A Glendale man and three cousins visiting from Ecuador got more than they bargained for when they decided to drive around and throw eggs at passing cars, police say. It all started at about 11 p.m. Tuesday on Broadway near Pacific Avenue when one of the men hit a Hummer with an egg as it passed, police said. The driver of the Hummer, who was not identified, allegedly turned around and gave chase. The chase continued for several blocks until the men - who were, ironically, driving a Ford Escape - reached the 1300 block of West Glenoaks Boulevard, where a white Mercedes pulled in front of the men and tried to block them, police said.

Truth be told, the broken, faded sign had kept me away for years. But my husband and I love novelty almost as much as we love our Saturday morning breakfasts together, so despite the B rating card in the window, we ventured into Jeremy's Restaurant. Am I glad we did. It's “our” spot now. It's not because of the food, though the food is unfailingly good. It's not even the decor, though the decor is shabbily charming. It's the whole package, really, including the curmudgeonly signs on the walls, the funny waitresses, the weathered faces all around talking about power sanders and long car trips, and the endless cups of diner-style coffee.

We agree with the op-ed written by Garry E. Ackerman in the News-Press on Sunday titled “Float association has had enough.” This hard working, loyal and dedicated group has had nothing but verbal abuse and smear tactics plumbed against it for the past six months. For what? Well, its members had the audacity to select an animal that looked like Dumbo the elephant with a happy smile. This long-standing volunteer group has devoted time, energy and money to Glendale's Rose Parade float.

Students in four first-grade classes at Chamlian Armenian School convened in the cafeteria Wednesday, where they anxiously waited for the green eggs and ham they were about to eat to commemorate Dr. Seuss’ March 2 birthday. During the previous week, the classes had read one Dr. Seuss book during each school day and learned about the author, born Theodore Geisel in 1904. His book, “Green Eggs and Ham,” was published in 1960. His first children’s book, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” was published in 1937 after 27 publishers rejected it. By the end of Geisel’s career, he had written and illustrated 44 books, won a Pulitzer Prize, an Academy Award, three Caldecott honors, three Emmys and three Grammys.

Although it’s only 7 a.m. on a Thursday, the hustle and bustle inside the Corner Cottage in Burbank is hard to ignore. As dozens of eggs are being skillfully cracked in the red brick kitchen, orders are flying in, the line is gaining strength, and a handful of morning conversations are taking place. Sitting at their favorite table in the affordably priced and modest restaurant, Kevin Jones and Dave Chambers are longtime patrons of the Corner Cottage, and with good reason.

There aren’t many places where you can buy eggs alongside vintage door knobs. Some might ask why, but plenty more in this city would say “why not?” It’s an odd combination that for decades the loyal customer base of Virgil’s Hardware have come to expect, even love. So it should not have come as a huge shocker when customers reacted with restrained fear upon learning the fiercely independent hardware store on Glendale Avenue had been sold to a larger corporation.
