Paul Andersen, Weekend GLENDALE -- When Glendale singer/songwriter Debra Davis was first approached by the producers of the Nashville Network's "Angel Encounters," it was about using one of her songs for the show's soundtrack. "They originally just wanted to use my song, 'Angels in the Attic,' " says Davis. "Then the director asked me about the reasons I wrote the song. I explained that it was about specific experiences I have had with people who were close to me and had passed on, and how they remained in touch with me while I wrote, sort of watching over me."

That was Tomas J. Soler's nightmare, and it became a reality on Valentine's Day. Soler's 15-year-old daughter, Venessa, in the spirit of fun, bought a book -- "Position of the Day, Sex Every Day in Every Way" -- from the store as a gift for her parents.
