More overnight closures on the 405 Freeway are planned for Friday and Saturday as construction crews continue to work on the Mulholland Drive overpass.

CITY HALL — The next chapter in the fight of residents angry about construction of the San Fernando Corridor “flyover” bridge project will come to the City Council dais Tuesday. In the latest development of the contentious project, the City Council will consider granting residents affected by 13 nights of construction with an electric-bill reduction. Residents, who have long protested the noise and traffic related to the massive projects, have argued that the construction will force them to keep their windows closed and run air-conditioning units when they normally wouldn’t.

My wife and I joined a "westside" college friend and his wife last Friday night for an evening out. The conversation drifted to community arts and I asked what community activities they took their two teenagers to. They kind of looked at each other and confessed that the only "community" Brentwood activities of which they were aware were the 3rd Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Farmer's Market. I thought of our community this past summer when we've visited a free arts event almost every night of the week.

Some 82-year-olds settle into their rocking chairs and sing the blues about their aches and pains. But Linda Hopkins prefers to rock the house while singing blues favorites twice a month at Revo Art and Jazz Café in Glendale. The veteran actress has made a career of cabaret singing and in December Revo owner Henry Kazarian invited her to start a talent showcase on Sunday nights. "I'm trying to build up and get young artists known," Hopkins said. "And get people here looking for good talent."

The quiet upstairs nook of Left Coast Wine Bar transforms into a vibrant space filled with the sounds of Cuban jazz on Friday nights. Singer and pianist Iliana Rose performs with her band while audience members sip wine and sample some of the dinner menu items. Others sing along with Rose or shake the percussive instruments on their table to Cuban classics like “Guantanamera.” Sergio Gonzalez on drums, David Zasloff on trumpet and Roy Alnashef on bongos complete Rose’s quartet band.

Bob’s Big Boy is considering a move to bring back one of its restaurants to our area, where it all began for the chain, and all I can say is, “Yahoo!” I had my first Big Boy when I was about 3. Our family had just moved from Los Angeles into our home in Montrose, and in celebration we went to Bob’s. It was love at first bite for my brothers and me. A little later in my life I got to go to Bob’s after piano recitals as a reward, not for my stellar performance, but just for having made my way through it. One memorable piece that I recall mangling badly, “The Donkey Serenade,” had my brothers sitting in the audience and braying out when I descended the stage to a chorus of “hee-haws.

It’s 7 a.m. as I write this, so maybe it’s just the tequila talking. But this was a lousy June. A never ending series of Portland mornings; dreary days that drive men to bars for breakfast and cause teenagers to pierce cartilage. On a lifelessly gray morning last week I was driving north on the 101 Freeway, and the radio was airing endless reports on Michael Jackson’s sudden death the day before. The clouds outside mirrored the shrouds of sounds and sadness, white noise and unknowing on the airwaves.

Jacqui Brown GLENDALE--Joan Marie Whelan has plenty of things on her mind, but it's what's on your mind that matters. Whelan, a psychic who lives in Glendale, has been featured on KBIG-FM (104.3) radio talk show "Angels in Waiting" on Sunday nights and two shows on KPLM-FM (106.1) in Palm Springs. As a medium, Whelan helps clients cope with the loss of loved ones and clarifies unresolved issues with those who have passed on. Those skills will be exhibited Thursday during a presentation at the Holiday Inn at the Burbank Media Center.

INGLEWOOD - In the end, the beginning of Marina Shafir's professional mixed martial arts career proved most difficult in the weeks leading up to her debut trying to find an opponent. Once Shafir set foot inside the ring at Lights Out Promotions' “Chaos at the Casino 4” event Saturday night at Hollywood Park Casino, it took her 117 seconds and two armbar attempts to introduce herself victoriously to the professional mixed martial arts world. Making her professional debut, Shafir, the "Supernova from Moldova," coaxed a tap from Chandra Engel in 1:57 of the first round via armbar in the featheweight (145 pounds)

Someone please explain to me why some homeowners think that their loud party music and general cacophony will be enjoyed by neighbors far into the night. Last Friday night, even with all the windows shut tight, it was earplug time until after 2 a.m. This sort of callous disregard for others is beyond my comprehension. Robert Morrison Glendale

GLENDALE - When it mattered most, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team couldn't bring a run across the plate. Trailing by one run over the final three innings, the Falcons stranded six runners on base, including four in scoring position. “That's a killer,” Falcons Coach Phil Torres said. So they dropped their final game of the Dick's Tournament at Stengel Field to Etiwanda, 3-2, on Friday night. Crescenta Valley (3-2) left a total of nine runners on base, just two days removed from leaving 11 on during a win over Fullerton.

First-round victories are nothing new for “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. Wins via strikes are, however, and that's exactly what Rousey got Saturday night in the main event of UFC 170 at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay, defeating challenger Sara McMann at the 1:06 mark of the first round to defend her Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title. The 27-year-old Rousey (9-0) defended her title for the third time in handing McMann (7-1) her first career loss, as the Glendale Fighting Club-trained champion crumpled McMann with a left knee to the body and followed with a barrage of punches that brought upon a stoppage from referee Herb Dean.

GLENDALE - Not much went right early on for Selin Gomez with her shooting. The Glendale Community College women's basketball player struggled throughout the first half. However, she more than atoned for it with a big second half. Gomez recorded 17 of her 21 points in the second half, including five three-pointers, to propel host Glendale to a 79-75 Western State Conference Southern Division victory against Bakersfield on Wednesday. PHOTOS: GCC womens' basketball beats Bakersfield Gomez' performance wasn't the only big night for GCC, as freshman Samantha Pyros poured in 30 points and also grabbed 12 rebounds.

Much as retailers cut prices on Dec. 26 to unload overstocked Christmas merchandise, so do film distributors - in the first week or two of January - hustle to dump the overflow of last year's scheduled-then-pulled releases. This is particularly true of indie films whose release dates have been postponed to avoid competing with the year-end flood of big-bucks, big-ad, big-hype studio pictures. They drop them into the schedule for a brief run on the way to home video. This doesn't necessarily mean they're bad, but merely that there's not much to base the marketing on. Take the case of “Cold Comes the Night,” the second feature from director Tze Chun (“Children of Invention”)

A gently used dress in the back of a closet could make a young woman's evening special later this month as the Renal Support Network prepares for its 15th annual Renal Teen Prom for young kidney-disease survivors and their guests. The organization is accepting donated dresses and accessories until Saturday at the Polish Bar, 367 N. Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Several young women who will be attending the prom will be trying on dresses beginning on Friday, said Lori Hartwell, president and founder of the Glendale-based organization who was on dialysis from age 12 to 24 and has had four kidney transplants.

The Disco Era - in film terms, roughly between “Jaws” and “Blue Velvet” - seemed pretty limp during its unfolding, but Shout! Factory's recent Blu-ray/DVD releases show it in a far more positive light. In addition to relatively well-known items - like “Halloween,” “Lifeforce” and “The Howling” - we now have “Night of the Comet,” the feature debut of director Thom Eberhardt. It didn't go unnoticed in 1984; reviews were good, and money was made. But it hasn't generated the level of fan enthusiasm it deserves.
