Juanita De Anda Parsons has the secret to surviving a century. Just have a good breakfast and don't stress yourself out, she prescribes. As Parsons sat among more than 125 of her closest friends and family members at her 100th birthday party, she looked back on her long life. She's been a sister to five, a daughter, singer, beautician, divorcee and resident of Glendale, but most importantly to Parsons and those who love her, she is alive and well. As a young woman, she and her sister, Chinta, were regular guest singers on the local radio station in Globe, Ariz.

I did something I've never done before in my whole life.  No, not dye my hair. Last week my youngest son took a class at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.  Since the class was an hour and a half long for five consecutive days, I indulged myself by eating every morning at my favorite breakfast place in Pasadena, Marston's. In business since 1987, Marston's, located in an actual house on Walnut, offers tasty recipes such as French Toast encrusted in corn flakes and macadamia nut pancakes.

Claudia Peschiutta HILTON GLENDALE -- Breakfast came with more than just eggs, bacon and potatoes for those who attended the Glendale Chamber of Commerce's Friday morning function at the hotel. U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) was on hand to share his views and answer questions on everything from HMO reform to oil drilling in Alaska.

Truth be told, the broken, faded sign had kept me away for years. But my husband and I love novelty almost as much as we love our Saturday morning breakfasts together, so despite the B rating card in the window, we ventured into Jeremy's Restaurant. Am I glad we did. It's “our” spot now. It's not because of the food, though the food is unfailingly good. It's not even the decor, though the decor is shabbily charming. It's the whole package, really, including the curmudgeonly signs on the walls, the funny waitresses, the weathered faces all around talking about power sanders and long car trips, and the endless cups of diner-style coffee.

Studies abound on the importance of breakfast enabling students to concentrate on lessons rather than on grumbling tummies. Breakfast foods do not need to be cereal or eggs, either. Nontraditional, healthy foods for breakfast are better than nothing, said Chien-Wei Kung, Glendale Memorial Hospital dietary intern. "Breakfast increases concentration and keeps students more alert," he said. "Pizza can be good because of the dairy from cheese, carbohydrates from crust for energy, and nutrients from tomato sauce."

Robert Chacon One local restaurant has garnered top honors from a major Internet service provider for its unique breakfasts. America Online City Guide editors voted Dish in La Canada Flintridge the best breakfast in the Los Angeles area earlier this month. With menu items such as cornmeal jonnycakes, apple oatcakes, other seasonal pancakes such as pumpkin, daily whole-roasted ham and fresh-squeezed juices, apple-wood smoked sausages and bacon, and one-of-a-kind omelets, the costs are still comparable with traditional breakfast restaurants.

For Charlene Tilton, best known for her long career on “Dallas,” the popular series from the 1970s and 1980s, life has been a series of struggles. But God and acting have been her safe havens, she said Thursday morning at the 51st Annual Glendale Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. Each has helped her in a different way. God became her support system and acting allowed her to forget the tribulations of growing up poor with a sick, single mother. God first became her lifeline when her mother had a nervous breakdown on a train ride from Los Angeles, where they lived at the time, to visit family in Nebraska, she told a room of about 170 people at the Civic Auditorium.

John Emery Johnston spent last Christmas sleeping in his Dodge Caravan. This Christmas, he sat eating waffles, bacon and a spinach quiche served by volunteers at a Glendale shelter. “I never dreamed I'd be in that kind of plight,” said the 62-year-old Army veteran, who has been living for five months at a transitional housing center run by Ascencia, Glendale's largest services homeless provider. Before that, he lived for a year in his car. PHOTOS: Volunteers serve Christmas breakfast at Ascencia Johnston - who spiraled into homelessness in 2011 after losing his job of 26 years as a library technician - and about 50 others were served breakfast by Skip 1, a nonprofit that asks people to skip one thing a day and use that money to help others.

The Glendale Educational Foundation presented Glendale school officials with a $60,000 check Thursday morning during the ninth annual State of the Schools breakfast. During the breakfast catered by Glendale High students in the school's bistro program, Glendale Unified Supt. Richard Sheehan highlighted the district's overall success on the Academic Performance Index, scores based on how well students perform on state standardized exams. But those particular exams will no longer be part of students' end-of-year tasks as the state ushers in the new Common Core State Standards and switches to timed tests students will take on computers.

Glendale resident Arthur Chase Moore was feted by some 200 of his closest friends and family in celebration of his 100th birthday (actually on the following day). The location was chosen because Art was the oldest “Ancient Lovely” to participate in the Father's Follies at the Club last year when he was a mere 99-year-old.

Sharing stories about how God has touched his life, famed entertainer Pat Boone called on attendees of the 50th annual Glendale Mayor's Prayer Breakfast to let prayer into their lives, now more than ever due to recent acts of mass violence. “Our nation needs prayer, we always do, but we know it now more than ever,” Boone said as he spoke before more than 250 people at the Civic Auditorium. Wearing a white suit with brown-and-blue stripes and a pin featuring both American and Israeli flags, Boone went on to describe prayer as a supernatural conversation between people and God, and gave examples of how it has helped him and others in his life.

He married Shirley Foley, daughter of country music star Red Foley. Boone enrolled in a local college, planning to become a teacher, then transferred to a Texas college where he won a local talent show, thus earning him an appearance on Ted Mack's “Original Amateur Hour,” according to starplus.com.

The sum would double the $250,000 raised during the 2010-11 school year, a record for a schools-focused nonprofit that is trying to gain visibility with residents and business owners in Glendale. “This is really a big leap for us,” said foundation President Laurel Patric. “We will be doubling the amount of donations given to us, and in turn we will be able to give that money to the students of our school district.” The announcement came during the seventh annual State of the Schools Breakfast, which drew 500 people to Edison Elementary School to hear Supt.
