2010 was quite a year from where I sat. During the last 12 months, I satiated myself with a number of editorial nuggets. I discovered the incredible Sedthee Thai Eatery, vented about the city's anemic branding process, scorned IHOP for its gargantuan breakfasts, scoffed at Glendale Water & Power and sought to help others by shedding a light upon issues that have had a personal affect on my own life. I consider it a great privilege to share my opinions and viewpoints with readers every week.

One of the best restaurants in Glendale is IHOP. The food is excellent; never a bad meal there. The waiters and waitresses are so friendly, so pleasant, always. One of the assistant managers greets customers at the door, seats them at a table when they need help and helps the kitchen staff. Their chicken noodle soup is the best. It is fantastic. MAURINE BLAKELY Glendale   Election system is very expensive After a long, costly and same time muddy April 13 special primary election where we narrow down the field to two candidates in the 43rd Assembly District, we still have to elect one for the Nov. 2 election, this after a primary on June 8. It is a very long and costly process for basically a local election.

Executives at Glendale-based IHOP are hoping Americans’ love for two dessert and breakfast foods will make its latest product a hit: a stack of pancakes layered over cheesecake filling. The company on Monday debuted its new “five-layer pancake stackers,” a creation that includes a layer of “crust-less cheesecake” in between two pancakes topped with fruit and whipped cream. A regular combination comes with bacon, hash browns and two eggs and totals 1,250 calories, according to IHOP, which did not offer other nutritional details and did not have specifics for only a pancake stack.
