Ciria Saavedra, 10, clutched a pink bowling ball in her hands Thursday and eagerly waited her turn to bowl. It was the fulfillment of a promise to Ciria and 30 of her peers at Horace Mann Elementary School, who were awarded with medallions and rewarded with a trip to Jewel City Bowl for showing improvement on their reading and writing proficiency scores. "These students are our Hispanic achievers," said Kim Bishop, principal of Horace Mann Elementary.

Alecia Foster MONTROSE -- Mary Garcia never got to meet her sister Claire. The vibrant 9 1/2-year-old Claire died from cystic fibrosis almost exactly a year before Mary was born. "My mom has told me a lot of stories about her and I've seen pictures and videos of her," Mary said. "I sort of feel like I met her, in a way." Mary has also heard about Claire's struggles with the disease. And when the opportunity to help researchers find a cure arose, Mary jumped at the chance.

Under the vibrantly painted art-deco facade of the Jewel City Bowl and Grill, glass double doors bear a sign — “You are now entering a Trans-Fat free zone.” I would expect no less from a bowling alley, but I was very surprised to hear it about their grill. As our guest said, “Most places have the list up like a McDonald’s, but this place has menus!” Menus and no trans fat. This is not your father’s bowling alley grill. I barely got the kids past the arcade, and we gazed at the bowlers on our way to a little sign that said “Java Hut.” There we found a waitress, a posting for the espresso bar and the real menus we were so impressed with.

GLENDALE — The crashes of tumbling bowling pins, the scattered laughter of children and the idle chit-chat as players waited for their turn at Jewel City Bowl & Grill Thursday night seemed like a normal affair. But when 8-year-old Laura, an orphan from Bogota, Colombia, was taken aside from her 10-pin reverie and was asked about her home country, her eyes saddened as if she were keeping some sensitive stories inside. Eleven such orphans were at the local bowling alley Thursday night with host families and advocates for what Kidsave Los Angeles — the volunteer organization that tries to pair children in orphanages and foster care into permanent homes and families — in what was billed as just another fun outing in their Summer Miracles program.

Bowling alleys have been around in Glendale for many years. Some, such as Jewel City Bowl and the Montrose Bowl, are still here; others, such as the alley in Jensen's Palace Grand Shops on Brand Boulevard and the Glen Bowl on Colorado Boulevard, disappeared when the buildings were demolished or dramatically altered. One of the first alleys arrived in 1923, when the Glendale Recreation Center and Club opened in Jensen's with a tournament: Caswell's Gateway team versus Jensen Drugs, “an all-local match that will surprise you as to the class of bowlers that Glendale can produce,” as noted in an ad in the Glendale Evening News, March 1923.

Tucked away on Honolulu Avenue, Montrose Bowl's location is the definition of discreet. Despite the lack of flashing lights or colorful signs to announce its 77-year presence, the spot remains a favorite of locals and film companies. With its blue-green and orange coloring, red vinyl seats, and an absence of electronic scoreboards, the bowling alley is awash in the 1950s. A popular location shoot for many films, including “Teen Wolf” (1985), “Frankie and Johnny” (1991), and most recently Clint Eastwood's “Jersey Boys” (2014)
