East Los Angeles is moving closer to becoming its own city despite mounting cost concerns and implications of cityhood, Curbed LA reported. Officials released the final version of the East Los Angeles Comprehensive Fiscal Analysis late last week, which questioned the financial viability of East LA becoming a city. Recycling raises income of poor households One Occidental College professor's research suggets that recycling bottles and cans could be a significant source of income for poor people given states set their bottle-deposit refunds high enough.

This letter is in response to Roberta Gutierrez's commentary "Higher rents hurt local merchants," printed on Sept. 10. She states that merchants in Glendale should be "begging" the city to support rent control so renters would have more spendable income. I guess Ms. Gutierrez believes that renters who choose to live in Glendale because of its higher standards than other cities, and can afford to pay open-market rent, will not spend any money here. I think just opposite happens: The higher the income, the more spending locally.

Darleene Barrientos IHOP Corp. closed five of its 32 company-operated restaurants Thursday as the company reported second-quarter income dropped 60%. Executives of the Glendale-based restaurant chain said the dip in income and the closures were all expected as it shifts away from financing new franchises to a more traditional economic model in which franchise owners pay for their restaurant's development. IHOP will also reacquire four franchised restaurants and close three of them.

This is written by an "old and poor" Glendalian, who mistakenly voted for Bob Yousefian. I did not care for the remarks you made as quoted in the News-Press. Just because you can bleed the city of Glendale for an obscene amount of money, it doesn't set your up as a person who can be so judgmental. Some day, if you are fortunate, you will be considered "old" and, hopefully, you will have more than poverty-level income to live on. Some of us "old" people have had our income eroded by inflation and misfortunes and have no way to make it up now. Show more compassion for those who aren't as lucky as you. RUTH ANDERSON Glendale

Robert Chacon Residents who qualify are eligible for up to $5,000 to make home improvements courtesy of the city's Community Development Block Grant program. La Canada Flintridge has $72,000 available for the programs beginning July 1, the start of the coming fiscal year. Titled the Handy Worker Assistance Program, the grant has been largely unused for the past two years, mainly because the city canceled its contract with the company that did community outreach for the program.

GLENDALE — Pelanconi residents today are once again set to air their long-held opposition to a planned residential complex on Grandview Avenue that some say has no place in their Northwest Glendale neighborhood. The city’s Redevelopment Agency is slated to discuss new plans for the complex, to be located at 1015 Grandview Ave., after residents complained that the initial design of 300 units in a six-story unit would not fit in a community with smaller, single-family homes and nearby Pelanconi Park.
