If you find popcorn and movie tickets stuffed in a bra, you must be at Soroptimist International of Glendale's fourth annual Bras for a Cause fundraiser. The event has contestants decorate bras, which they pay $100 to enter in the competition. The bras are then auctioned off to the highest bidder. Funds raised go to breast cancer services at Glendale hospitals and other local charities that help women and children, event founder Kathy Lefkovits said. This year's competition has some innovative ideas depicting the theme Bras for a Cause Goes to the Movies, she said.

Josh Kleinbaum Edith Fuentes, the city's zoning administrator, pictures a bra surrounded by a small fence. Maybe a cell-phone tower will stick up from a cup. A house would likely need a conditional-use permit to avoid violating the Hillside Ordinance. "Signs, landscaping, the Design Review Board, you name it, we can do it," Fuentes said. "We'll come up with some of the controversial [planning] issues." Yes, Fuentes is talking about decorating a bra with planning- oriented designs.

Thanking Cavalia for its spectacular mane event What a magical experience, this beautifully, breathtaking performance between humans and horses. I have attended Cavalia three times, each performance more [exceptional] than the last. Magali Delgado and her husband, Frederic Pignon, are absolutely fantastic, as are the others who ride the beautiful horses. The men and women acrobats are amazing in their acts. I am so thankful that Cavalia came to Glendale.
