Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The Glendale zoning administrator will review two requests today for variances to allow two homes on Valley View Road. Charles Rendler from Manhattan Beach has requested the variances, which are needed because the project wouldn't have required driveways. Permits are also needed to grade dirt. The homes would be built at 1642 and 1650 Valley View Road. Also today, Thomas Ortiz is requesting a variance to allow a building to be converted into a fast-food restaurant at 469 Burchett St. The hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. in Room 105 of the Municipal Services Building, 633 E. Broadway.

Re: parking variance for Starbucks on Burchett and Pacific. Much ado about nothing has been made of the parking situation at the Starbucks Coffee at Burchett and Pacific, and I guess I shouldn't be surprised that only a handful of outspoken individuals have created another typical political and media feeding frenzy for the city of Glendale.

"My friends and I come here every Friday for a CV special," freshman Ashley Flores said. "The food here is better than the school's."

Charles Rich Unlike most teenagers, don't expect to find Katie Kime making a beeline to a fast-food restaurant. Hamburgers, hot dogs and onion rings are out, and have been replaced by chicken and rice. Now there's a high degree of will power for a 13-year-old. "No junk food," Kime said. "I have to eat high-protein foods. I have to watch what I eat." That's a valid explanation offered by Kime, who will compete Wednesday and Thursday in the 2003 ConocoPhillips Spring National Championship in Indianapolis.
