Joyce Rudolph DOWNTOWN -- Cushy seats and a working elevator await patrons attending the first production of A Noise Within's 10th season, back at the Masonic Temple structure on south Brand Boulevard. Previews for Thornton Wilder's "The Skin of Our Teeth" begin Sunday for the theater company that returned home more than two months ago after performing only one season at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex on the Cal State L.A. campus. The old church pew seats have been replaced by 144 modern cushioned chairs and the elevator works, making it easier to get to the stage on the third floor, Art Manke said.

Jackson Bell DaHyun Hwang admitted that she was a little scared while waiting to get her teeth cleaned Tuesday at Glendale Kids Dental Kare. But after a little tender care and some professional advice, the 8-year-old left unafraid and well-prepared to keep her smile pearly white. "He said, 'Don't forget to clean the bottom teeth at the end," the Mark Keppel Elementary School third-grader said of her dentist, Jack Bayramyan. "It's important because if you don't, you might get cavities, and your teeth will get rotten.

MONTROSE — Eight-year-old Lili Dow smiled big and opened wide while dental assistant Kayleen Pruden readied the X-ray machine. “You’ll be able to see your teeth through this machine,” Pruden said. “Bite down all the way and smile really big.” A humming sound filled the small corner of Stephen Giovanisci’s dental practice on Montrose Avenue. “Now I only have two more to do,” Pruden said. “And those are the easy ones.

After noticing that her vision was slowly getting blurry, she decided to go to Friday’s eye-screening event. The Northwest Glendale Lions Club sponsored the free eye screenings, along with Optos Eye Screening, Glendale Optometric Center and Jewel City Optometry.

Julie McCarty knows what it takes to teach children the importance of good dental care. It takes volunteers who can teach about proper tooth-care techniques. With the use of visual aids, McCarty, 54, trains and sends out a team of volunteers to classrooms in Glendale to talk to first-graders about the necessity of oral hygiene. "If kids are having problems with their teeth or health, they are not going to learn," said McCarty, a La Crescenta resident. McCarty is the volunteer program coordinator for the dental education program with Glendale Healthy Kids, a nonprofit program that provides medical and dental services to low-income and uninsured children.

Nominated for this year's Animation Oscar, the excellent “Ernest & Celestine” was, sad to say, not the winner. It was a tough field - hey, there was a Miyazaki film in there too - and I have no unkind words for “Frozen,” the winner, either. We've all heard the frankly hollow line about there not being any losers. But, in this particular case, there is some justification. On the eve of the expansion of its U.S. release, the lovely French/Belgian co-production will benefit from its brief mention in last week's world-televised awards show - one of the dullest ever, by the way. In outline, the setup is not wholly unlike many of the animated features coming out of Hollywood: lovable anthropomorphized animals play out humanoid conflicts and realize that we all have to learn to live together.

More than 200 people, some arriving before dawn, lined up along Glendale Avenue on Wednesday to receive root canals, fillings and other dental work during a free emergency care clinic hosted by the California Dental Group. Vance Jordan, 59, of Glendale arrived with a toothache and said he hadn't seen a dentist in about seven years. Shay Sanders, 30, of Los Angeles came at 2 a.m. to wait six hours for a root canal, a procedure she said wasn't available at most free clinics and well out of her budget.

I read with interest the Glendale News-Press front-page article, “City keeps its A on report,” on Jan. 17. It is positive news that our city has taken a stand for a smoke-free environment and that there is public recognition for this accomplishment. However, what has been established by ordinance is not what happens in the city. Within half a mile of my residence, there are six businesses whose customers and owner/employees frequently smoke on the sidewalk right in front of the buildings.

CITY HALL — Residents could see lower rates under Glendale Water & Power’s efforts to crack down on service theft, which drains an estimated $11 million a year from the utility’s revenues, translating into higher rates for consumers. The City Council on Tuesday approved ordinance amendments that will strengthen the utility’s ability to find and penalize electricity and water service theft. City Councilman Ara Najarian said Wednesday that the crackdown was imperative, especially in light of the city’s budget issues.
