While economists are saying we may be reaching the end of the recession, I?m still counting pennies, trolling for coupons and looking for ways to stretch the handful of dollars clinging to my wallet. Like a lot of people, I?ve altered my spending behavior, plucking only the necessities from grocery store shelves and vastly reducing my dining-out budget (Food Fight being the exception). Another hibernating habit is buying java from corporate giants. So, I?ve been brewing at home or seeking out independently owned coffee houses.

Tina Howell wanted a hot cup of java to warm her up on the cool Tuesday evening. She got more warmth than she bargained for when, upon leaving the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at the corner of Honolulu Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard at about 6 p.m., she noticed her car was on fire.

Though last year saw a number of Honolulu Avenue eateries close their doors, new ones quickly pop up to take their place. One of the newest to debut in the Montrose shopping district is Thee Elbow Room, a petite-sized coffee and lunch spot, replacing the former Java Brew. Soft-spoken and bright-eyed, chief and co-owner Cristal Arguelles moves efficiently through the restaurant, providing a sandwich that made one customer exclaim “home-run” upon the first bite. “I'm very excited to have her here,” said Janelle Williams, a customer and neighbor.

On any weekday morning, you’ll find Wanda Bergstrom at Montrose’s City Hall Coffee Shop, where she’s waited on customers for 41 years. It’s 5:30 a.m., and her regulars won’t arrive for another 15 minutes, so she has time to dish a few stories. She starts the three pots of coffee she keeps flowing at all times and brings up the mugs that customers keep on the wall. “I had this big huge guy that would come in every morning and gripe to me that these mugs were too small for his big hand,” she says of the shop’s white mugs.

The denial of the facts regarding the Comfort Women is an affront to all these women of the occupied Asian countries. Our house and whole blocks in the neighborhood were confiscated to become a barbed-wire enclosure for the Japanese army's houses of leisure that were occupied by Comfort Women. This occurred during the occupation of Surabaya (Java-Indonesia) during World War II. I applaud the Glendale City Council for approving this long overdue monument. R. van der Werff Glendale
