"We just thought we'd give him a birthday present," co-chairman Joe Mandoky added.

I've just finished sending off the last of my youngest son's birthday party invitations which are also the last child's party I plan on hosting. Having a child's birthday party sounds like it would be fun, but actually requires the patience of a saint.  Many parents ignore the RSVP part of an invitation so my wife and I inevitably have to send off reminders. It can be painful for the birthday child to ask each day who is coming to his party when no one has called.

A gregarious Jamaican orphan showed off his new legs as he celebrated his sixth birthday SpongeBob SquarePants- style. Christopher Bandoo ate chocolate cake and asked all the adults in the room to sport SpongeBob birthday hats with him as they snapped pictures and encouraged him to open his presents. Christopher came from an orphanage in Mandeville, Jamaica, and suffered from mild cerebral palsy. He was not able to walk prior to surgery performed at Glendale Adventist Medical Center in January, when doctors lengthened his Achilles' tendons.

Katherine Tolford, Weekend GLENDALE -- The table is set, the presents are wrapped and the cake is frosted for a special birthday party at the Brand Library Art Galleries. To visitors, it might appear a ready-made party has been laid out in their honor, but the surprise is that nothing is edible and the presents can't be opened because they're made of wood. The party is a celebration of wood turning, an art form that dates back to Egyptian times.

Darleene Barrientos The conditional-use permit issued to a local restaurant by the city has angered one of the restaurant's neighbors, who say the location is really a banquet hall and a hub of drunken revelry. Joe Miller, who lives near the Dream Palace, 510 E. Broadway, believes the permit issued to the restaurant was inappropriate and that the owners have not lived up to their agreement with neighbors. "It's been a long, continuing struggle," Miller said.

This week I started planning for the kids' birthday party. It's not this month, or in October, or even in November. Their birthday is in December. Now it may sound like I'm jumping the gun a bit, but there are so many things to consider and arrangements to be made. First, we had to pick a date and, since we're not crazy enough to have a party for dozens of first-graders at our house, hope that the place we wanted wasn't already booked. The popular places can book up quickly, so that's a big reason for me to start early.

Gary Moskowitz NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- A student survey at Jefferson Elementary School a few years ago showed 28 languages are spoken by students at the school. The ethnic and cultural diversity reflected in the school's survey is still prevalent today and was in full array at Jefferson Elementary's 80th birthday celebration Saturday on the school's campus. Carol Grosz, a sixth-grade teacher at Jefferson, said the event was not just a birthday party for the school but a celebration of the school's diversity and spirit.

They say when an older person dies, a library is lost. If that's the case, I met a university-sized one Monday, and I'd like to preserve at least some of the stacks for perpetuity. Enter Genevieve Fisher, a 98-year-old woman who has lived in the same house on Norton Avenue in Glendale since she was 23. For those of you keeping score, that would be during Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first term, and just a few blocks away from the high school named for FDR's predecessor. Fisher got in touch with me after reading my last column, in which I mentioned a business story that ran in the Oct. 4, 1955, edition of the Glendale News-Press.

Things sure to take a late-summer heat wave to new levels of torture: Woolen long-johns. A car without air-conditioning. Ten manic girls camped out in your living room. Last week we entertained a gaggle of princesses for our 9-year-old's sleepover birthday. Have you noticed how kids' birthdays seem to last an entire week? Seven days early: “My birthday is this week! Can I open a present?” The day before: “It's my birthday eve. Can I open a present?” At 11:50 p.m. that night: “I can't sleep.

For 10 years, Ray Bradbury signed books, celebrated his birthdays and drew large crowds to the Mystery and Imagination Bookshop owned by his friends Christine and Malcolm Bell in downtown Glendale. It is here that Bradbury - best known for his science fiction novel, “Fahrenheit 451” - connected with fans one-on-one, where three dimensional-themed treats, overseen by Porto's Bakery across the street, were brought in to celebrate his birthday. From a whale-shaped treat to honor Bradbury's contribution to the screenplay of the 1956 film adaptation of “Moby Dick” to another in the form of a burning book - complete with flames and a list of all his lifetime literary accomplishments - they reflected Bradbury's farfetched imagination and the overwhelming love his fans had for him. On this bustling stretch of Brand Boulevard, the phone calls and emails haven't stopped at the shop since the beloved author passed away at 91 last week.

After a couple of gut-wrenching rounds of rock-paper-scissors, it was decided that my wife would be the one staying home when we started having children. Each day as I left the house for work she would say to me, “There will be a time when I’m working and you will have to take care of the kids all day.” As children wailed in the background, her desperate cling to sanity was lost on me. Until now. As she kissed me goodbye and skipped gleefully away from the house one recent Saturday morning, I thought, “How hard could it be?

Students across Glendale and Burbank heard the riddles and rhymes of Dr. Seuss on Monday, in honor of the famous children’s author and illustrator Theodor Geisel. Geisel, who wrote children’s books under the name Dr. Seuss, died in 1991, but Monday was his birthday, and teachers across the area took the opportunity to engage students in his work. Children at Chamlian Armenian School in Glendale heard a parent read “Green Eggs and Ham,” after which they ate green eggs and ham, and classes throughout the Glendale and Burbank unified school districts spent time reading some of Seuss’ most famous titles, including “The Cat in the Hat” and “Fox in Socks.
