Especially at this time of year, when relatives roll into town eager to live it up. It's fun to introduce them to L.A.'s ethnic dining scene, chase food trucks around town and stop in at the latest cutting-edge venues. But at some point, they may want to indulge in a celebratory holiday meal at one of L.A.'s fine-dining establishments. Here's your crib list: The Royce at the Langham Huntington.  Out with the dated ship models and fusty decor. In with a bright contemporary dining room and beautiful, subtle cooking from Guy  Savoy  protegé David Féau.

Alecia Foster NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- After months of discussion, Glendale Unified officials have pinned down about eight short-term recommendations that could help ease overcrowding at its schools. The recommendations were originally made by the Task Force on Facility Use and Student Housing in June.

Along with the recommended areas, district officials established a course of action and deadlines, said Don Empey, deputy superintendent of educational services for the district.

GLENDALE — After surviving chemotherapy, several surgeries and a double mastectomy, the battle against breast cancer isn’t over for Glendale resident Myli Vanegas. After a yearlong battle with the disease, the 45-year-old must now be more vigilant than ever with constant doctor visits and tests. She started getting mammograms at 39 after discovering lumps on her breasts during a self exam. But getting mammograms hasn’t always been an easy process. “You have to demand because they don’t listen, like they don’t care,” she said.

To Terry Bailey: Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my column on the proposed changes in the Tech Plan for the Glendale Unified School District. The intent of my column was to inform the community of significant issues before the board and to get perceptive and expert persons to respond and offer their perspective. You did, and for that I am most appreciative. As a matter of record, however, the Board of Education did not make a decision to abandon the Macs.

Josh Kleinbaum Rather than make recommendations on the tough issue of rent control, the Rental Housing Issues Working Committee decided to play hot potato, leaving the hot topic in the hands of the legal system. The pending legal battle could make any recommendations by the committee moot, members said. Property Owners for Property Rights Protection is attempting to get an anti-rent control initiative on a ballot in Glendale but the Glendale Tenants Assn.

Glendale officials plan to take a new approach in addressing pedestrian safety issues following a recent string of collisions and fatalities in the city. They are forming a subcommittee of the Transportation and Parking Commission to look into safety concerns, discuss issues and make recommendations to address them, which will then be presented to the City Council. “I believe that is definitely an ongoing necessity - something that has to be done continually and usually the best people are the eyes and ears of the community when they can see things,” Commissioner Maro Yacoubian said at the commission's meeting this week.

Glendale officials have decided to ignore recommendations made by the Los Angeles County Civil Grand Jury in a report that city officials claim muddled the waters around an unsuccessful ballot measure in April. The measure would have changed how millions in electric utility revenues are transferred to the General Fund each year. The civil grand jury serves as a watchdog and is charged with investigating city, county and other special government agencies. In March, it released a scathing report on the controversial practice of Glendale transferring millions of dollars in revenues from its city-owned utility to help pay for police, libraries and other public services.

Glendale Water & Power commissioners are recommending that Glendale's utility wean itself off coal before 2027, with one calling it a "politically important" symbol. If the City Council ultimately decides to go along with the recommendation and make the timetable official, the move would come on the heels of Los Angeles vowing to do the same by 2025. Glendale Water & Power officials have been working on reducing the city's reliance on coal-generated power, but this is the first step toward putting the rollback on an official timeline.

City officials say parking permits may be the imperfect answer to a years-long fight waged between residents and car dealerships along South Brand Boulevard. On Monday, the Transportation and Parking Commission supported streamlining rules for a special permitting process in an effort to strike a compromise between the competing interests. “It's not a perfect plan. It's a start,” said Commissioner Aram Sahakian in front of about 25 people at the City Hall meeting. If the City Council eventually approves the ordinance as recommended by the commission, the city will create a “preferential parking district” bounded by Central Avenue to the west, Colorado Street to the north, Glendale Avenue to the east and San Fernando Road to the south.

Experts say the ongoing response by Glendale Unified officials to the suicide last week at Crescenta Valley High School will be critical in preventing a repeat event. Students with a history of mental illness or past suicide attempts are most vulnerable to the so-called suicide contagion, a phenomenon in which one suicide triggers another, they added. “One of the things we worry about with both shootings and suicide is that it will spread,” said Ron Astor, a researcher at USC and an expert in bullying, school violence and crisis intervention.

In an effort to downsize the large pole signs ubiquitous with fast food restaurants, officials are recommending that the City Council stick to a years-old requirement that they're either torn down or replaced with smaller versions to be in line with the law. The Planning Commission made the recommendation as the City Council considers whether to stick to the plan, or give business owners some form of reprieve. About 60 businesses throughout Glendale - from fast food restaurants to hair salons - currently can't change what their large pole signs say unless they replace the large structures with smaller ones, which could cost thousands of dollars.
