Regarding the approved plans for a new Bloomingdale's [“Plan for Bloomingdale's gets the nod,” Sept. 1] Councilman Ara Najarian should be embarrassed by his own biased comments toward consumers who spend their money in our city. He says that the types of customers In-N-Out attracts “aren't what that part of the city needs” and that the “demographic is completely opposite” to what he thinks should be next to the Galleria and the Americana. All he needed to say next was that an In-N-Out belongs only in East L.A. Did he not learn his lesson from sticking his foot in his mouth then?

Here's a sentence I used in a recent column: “Note the difference between a plural, a possessive, and a plural possessive.” See anything funny about it? Two readers did. Both wrote to tell me that the word “between” should be “among.” Thus, they said, I made a mistake. Did I? I've spent a lot of years researching word-choice issues. For most, my process goes like this: 1. Realize it's an issue. 2. Look it up. 3. Write about it. 4. Forget what I learned. 5. Repeat.

Costa Mesa resident Nadine Andreen received a range of gifts Saturday at her 90th birthday celebration. There were the standard cards and wrapped presents, but the one that really caught her eye came inside a plastic baggie. A neighborhood couple, Lance and Jean Thompson-Hailstone, packed the air-sealed gift with items such as a pinecone, a rock, a plastic mouth and a ceramic heart -- each of which represented a part of Andreen's personality and life work.

Gretchen Hoffman A small bank set to move into Glendale is hoping its target niche of professionals and small businesses will be the perfect fit for vacant commercial space in the Orange Street parking lot. The Redevelopment Agency agreed in October to lease 2,875 feet in the parking lot to Professional Business Bank, which opened just over a year ago in Pasadena. It's a company with its roots in the local community. Chief Executive Officer and President Brian Kelley and Chairman Bill Baribault are La Canada Flintridge residents, and Kelley estimates about a third of the bank's shareholders are business professionals working in Glendale.

Tim Willert GLENDALE -- Richard Hovannisian is a leading scholar on modern Armenian history, and is considered to be an expert on the Armenian Genocide. But he resents having to prove that the 86-year-old genocide -- in which an estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks -- exists because the Turkish government continues to deny its existence. "I find it regrettable that it is necessary to spend so much time and energy on the need to demonstrate the reality of the Armenian Genocide," he said Tuesday, "when there are so many other creative endeavors that could be achieved if this were not required."

Charles Rich A lot went wrong for the La Canada High football team last season. More than Spartan Coach Rich Wheeler would care to remember. Bottom line? Satisfaction wasn't achieved, and Wheeler won't duck the criticism. The Spartans, who finished fourth in the Rio Hondo League last season, missed the postseason for the first time since 1995. Wheeler pinned the shortcomings to an inconsistent offense, a porous defense and lack of special teams.

A Glendale resident got what she said was an unexpected earful from a baby doll she planned to purchase at the Toys R Us in Burbank: the "B" word. To make matters worse, Carol Szilagyi, a 68-year-old grandmother and great grandmother, said she planned to buy several dolls for a Los Angeles area battered women's shelter. “If I had enough time before Christmas, I would take every other grandma I know and go before the store to complain,” Szilagyi said. The You & Me Interactive Play and Giggle Triplet dolls, listed online for roughly $40, have generated plenty of buzz on YouTube and news outlets, with consumers convinced the doll says "OK, crazy b____!"

Through the Glendale Community College Instructional Assistance Center, learning disabilities specialist Stela Fejtek is teaching a group of seniors lip reading. The 18-week class is designed to teach seniors how to communicate using nothing but lips, allowing for more efficient communication and less reliance on hearing aids, she said. “My mom has been after me for ages to do this,” said student Don Smith of Glendale. “It’s an additional cue. As it is, you do a lot of guessing when you’re talking to people, and you don’t quite hear everything, so lipreading gives you additional clues.

Glendale Unified officials are calling on state and federal officials to help cover the cost of serving thousands of special-education students, which in the past three years alone has drained nearly $45 million from the district's General Fund. The federal government may commit to funding up to 40% of a school district's cost for special-education programs, but in Glendale, officials say they've never received more than 20% - and the costs keep going up. “It is an extraordinary financial burden for the school districts to bear,” school board member Mary Boger said.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — Cement lion heads on the fountain at the Pacific Community Park are posing such an attractive target for would-be thieves and vandals that the city is having them removed. The lion heads, which are designed to spout water out of their open mouths, have incurred damages that are compromising their function, Community Services Coordinator Eve Rappoport said. “They are kind of attractive nuisances,” she said. “And our park maintenance staff said we need to replace the lion heads; we need to do something because the water is dribbling and it’s just not operating the way it should.

Academia has always been a part of Jane Spilios' life. For decades the Glendale resident taught conversational English to foreign-born students at Los Angeles City College. And now in pseudo-retirement, she teaches there part-time. For the Kansas native, school was just easy, and learning came naturally to her, she said. After completing high school, Spilios went to college, majored in English and minored in speech, music and French. She earned her master's degree in speech from USC. When she started teaching at Los Angeles City College, Spilios noticed the difficulty her students had with pronunciation.
