Amber Willard NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Rob Tyler knows California history in a roundabout way -- through his license plate collection. "I love the stories behind the plates," said Tyler, who grew up in Glendale and lives in La Crescenta with his wife and son.

A bill designed to protect senior citizens and others from having their bank accounts drained passed the state Assembly recently by a 69-0 vote. The legislation, introduced by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake), stipulates that funds in bank accounts with more than one signer belong to each person based on their contributions. Gatto wrote AB 1624 after a divided California Court of Appeal ruled that whoever withdraws money first from a bank account becomes the owner of the money, which can lead to accounts held by seniors and others being emptied by individuals who did not put funds into the account.

Staring at license plates is not unusual, especially for a police officer ... or for collector Rob Tyler of La Crescenta, who has accumulated 3,000 plates. An interesting 600 are artistically mounted on display boards in his large workshop at J.P. Weaver Co., in Glendale. These are excerpts from a conversation with Tyler: CHUCK BENEDICT: These plates go all the way back to 1905. Surely you didn't get them by seeing them in traffic.

Recently, the grand opening was held for Wise Guys Italian Bistro in Montrose. My girlfriend and I arrived just after 7 p.m. to have dinner, but the restaurant was full of people so we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The restaurant had a special grand opening menu with discounted prices on wine and beer, entrees and desserts. While waiting for our table and while we dined, we were entertained by Norman Panto, an accomplished accordionist who has been playing for decades. He had the diners clapping along with his songs in addition to receiving a round of applause after every song he played.

When Xing Peng Jue, a member of the Peking Acrobats, performs his chair act on the outdoor stage at the Orange County Fair, death always looks a misjudgment away. "I still get nervous," said Patrick Keegan, the stage manager of the Ralphs Park Plaza. "One day, we had some strong winds and they got concerned. You could see it in their eyes, but he's good at concentrating." To the performer, it may be concentration. To spectators, it may look like scrambling the laws of physics.

Thoughts while enjoying the autumn air as I stroll down Brand Boulevard: I wonder why the Glendale Market Broiler restaurant closed down. Its menus were freshly printed and sanitized daily. The waiters and waitresses were impeccably trained in courtesy. The food was always palatable. I wonder whether Glendale's Rob Tyler, a super collector of license plates dating back to the turn of the century, will contact former Glendale congressman Carlos Moorhead, to see what he does with his old government- logo plates.

For an extra $50, California car enthusiasts will soon be able to order vintage license plates, including the black plates with yellow lettering issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles in the 1960s, thanks to action taken by Gov. Jerry Brown. Among the hundreds of bills signed by the governor last week, AB 1658 is aimed at Californians who restore and drive vintage automobiles, as well as residents who are just nostalgic for the good old days. Other plates to be offered after Jan. 1 include those used in the 1950s, with a yellow background and black lettering, and those issued in the 1980s, with a blue background and yellow lettering.
