La Cañada Flintridge City Council members are expected as early as next week to discuss whether they would support the former Foothill Liquor location on 823 Foothill Blvd. reopening for sales of alcohol. The council must weigh whether to grant the shuttered location's new owner a letter of public convenience or necessity, which would be sent to the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for consideration in the licensing process. The location was purchased from previous owners by Melina Issakhanian, who, according to her request for findings of public convenience, currently operates a liquor store in Glendale.

Should a town where residents take fierce pride in maintaining a suburban character unique to Southern California settle for just any old mass-marketed alcoholic beverage?

La Cañada Flintridge City Council members split 3-2 Monday on plans for a new liquor store to open in the former Foothill Liquor location, the majority ultimately deciding to support a new operator's bid for a state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control License — but not without some conditions of their own. In exchange for a letter of support to the ABC, city officials want a guarantee that the 823 Foothill Blvd. location will forgo vending machines, operate no later than 10 p.m., and submit to city approval of window displays and other façade elements.

Recent local developments have given rise to a new basis for the local slogan (“We're No. 2!”). The slogan is often applied to education, now that LCHS is No. 2 on some, but not all, standardized test results applicable to public secondary schools in a state that does not rank in the top two. Suddenly, there's a new reason for La Cañadoids to proclaim, “We're No. 2!” La Cañada Flintridge will soon be home to not one, but two 7-Eleven stores. Whoop-de-do! When I was a young public defender, we always referred to the chain as “2-Elevens,” because robberies in California are a violation of Penal Code section 211. Obviously we were young, gifted worry warts.

La Cañada Flintridge is expected to move forward with an ordinance that will prohibit stores in the city from selling alcohol past midnight . The city chose to study the issue after receiving complaints from residents who claimed that stores that stay open late attract customers who are noisy and loiter around businesses. The ordinance would not affect restaurants. Currently, only one store sells alcohol past midnight, the 24-hour 7-Eleven Liquor on Foothill Boulevard near Alta Canyada Road.

It was an average weekday dawn in the Foothills. The alarm clocks were about to buzz. Time to make breakfast. To pack a lunch. Get the kids ready for school. Or jog. But most folks were still in bed, warm and safe. Not I. It was a little after 6 a.m. on Foothill Boulevard. As the day dawned, I glanced at my watch, again. Where is she? I wondered. Why is she late? I looked around. Charlie’s gas station was empty. The Apple Cart was empty. In fact, the entire intersection of Foothill and Alta Canyada was empty.

Ten Years Ago Renowned Lockheed test pilot Anthony “Tony” LeVier, who helped develop some of the world’s most advanced jet fighters, died after battling cancer. During his seven-decade career, LeVier survived eight crashes and one mid-air collision.

Two years after having a similar application denied, a Korean market on Tuesday was given the unanimous backing of the Planning Commission to sell liquor. The commission will recommend that Lotte Market, at 2135 Foothill Blvd., be granted a conditional use permit to sell beer and wine, pending its approval for a liquor license by the state Department of Alcohol Beverage Control. The matter will next be considered by the City Council. The market's owner, Kyung Ok Jin, and his daughter, Irene Jin, told the commission that last year's closure of neighboring Graham's Liquor sent customers to stores in other areas to find specialty Asian beers and wines.

La Cañada Flintridge City Council members were ready on Monday to discuss whether to support the reopening of the former Foothill Liquor location for alcohol sales, but the new leaseholder was not. Melina Issakhanian, who hopes to reopen the shuttered store on 823 Foothill Blvd. as a high-end liquor market, asked council members to hold off discussion because her attorney could not be present. Council members agreed to take up the matter again on Nov. 15. Because Foothill Liquor has been shuttered for several months and the previous owner lost her state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control license, Issakhanian must apply to the ABC for a new one. City leaders must first weigh whether to grant the shuttered location's prospective new operator a letter of public convenience or necessity, which would be sent to state officials for consideration in the licensing process.
