With the holiday season in full swing, the Glendale Fire Department wants residents to remember to use candles safely. Candles in the home cause more than 10,000 fires and 120 deaths per year nationally, according to the National Fire Protection Assn. On Dec. 16, a candle in the back of an unattached garage in the 900 block of East Glenoaks Boulevard became a part of that statistic. A Glendale man told officers his 15-year-old son lighted a candle in a room behind the garage because the electricity had been shut down.

Growing up in Southern California, I loved watching Sheriff John?s Lunch Brigade in glorious black & white. The show began airing on L.A. station KTTV in 1952 and featured popular segments including the daily Pledge of Allegiance and Safety Bulletin. Weekdays after kindergarten, I would sit on the floor of our family room in front of our wooden ark-like Zenith console TV and wait for Mom to bring in my wholesome all-American lunch which ? if I was lucky ? included a deviled egg sandwich on white Wonder bread with the crusts cut off, and a wiggly, jiggly square of orange Jell-O with shredded carrot and pineapple chunks inside.

Some died when they were only a day, or a month or two old. Others lived only into their 20s, or 30s or 40s. They were each someone’s baby, brother, sister, or grandchild. Now they are but a light in someone’s memory. During Sunday night’s Verdugo Hills Chapter of The Compassionate Friends’ Candle Light Remembrance at La Cañada Congregational Church on Foothill Boulevard, more than 100 grieving family members came to pay honor to lives taken away too soon, those referred to during the service as “angels who walked this earth for a short time.

The Stone family of Glendale gathered in their home Friday to light the second of eight menorah candles that represent the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Hanukkah celebrates the Jewish belief that after their temple was destroyed, one days' worth of lamp oil burned for eight days until new oil was processed. Matt, his wife Linda, and their twin daughters, Melissa and Maureen have attended Temple Sinai in Glendale for six years. Melissa and Maureen, both 13, were recently Bat Mitzvahed at Temple Sinai.

On its face, an ordinance that governs how much light can spill from one property onto another sounds like something out of an Orwellian nightmare of government control. The nightmare unspools like this: Dissatisfied with simply regulating traffic speeds, sign placements, zoning and the like, city officials decide to make light, air and water subject to their whims, as well. First, it's how much light will be allowed to "spill over" to another's property, and at what brightness.

Joshua Pelzer City Council will go dark tonight for a little light show. The lights will go out in council chambers during the City Council meeting tonight, and a floodlight will be used to demonstrate an ordinance regulating light that can trespass onto someone else's property. Resident complaints to the city prompted the ordinance, which would give the city the legal authority to take action. The legislation would limit light shining across property lines to half a foot-candle.

Jews across the globe will light the first candle on the menorah at sundown today, as the eight-day Hanukkah season begins.

Three candles sat atop a white sheet cake adorned with hot pink and purple roses made of icing. Florence Tuckman leaned forward to blow out the first candle ? an oversized digit in the shape of the number one. Someone pushed the cake closer to her as she struggled to blow out the second candle ? in the shape of a zero. With an extra push, she blew out the last candle and exclaimed ?I?m gonna live forever!? The last candle was a seven. On Monday afternoon, friends and family gathered at Elms Convalescent Hospital to celebrate Tuckman?

Last Saturday morning, as Crescenta Valley residents were busy getting kids to a sports game or revving up the lawn mower, little purple footprints were making their way along Honolulu Avenue. The purple footprints were part of a campaign to kick off this year’s American Cancer Society’s local Relay for Life activities taking place at Clark Magnet High School on the weekend of May 16. Paint the Town Purple is a strong visual reminder and a way to raise awareness and support for the 24-hour relay event, said organizers.

Winter. The days grow dark. The nights grow long and yet This is the season of light. There are many ways to approach the subject of Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday made ubiquitous in America by its proximity to the Christian celebration. What keeps this holiday going? Is it the food?

It is inherent within the human dimension to make the world a better place. The writers and philosophers tell us that we enhance ourselves and live fuller and richer lives when we reach out to others attempting to make their plight better. John Donne in ?Meditation XVll? asked us, ?For whom the bell tolls?? His answer.?.?.??It tolls for thee.? All of us have the potential to bring the powers of light to an often cloudy world, and perhaps the most effective way to shed a nurturing light is through ?

As the last rays of the sun set this evening, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah begins, marking eight days of celebration, gift-giving and reflection. The holiday occurs between the end of November and the end of December every year and celebrates important events in Jewish history. "In general this holiday has the most universal message — a message of light over darkness, freedom over oppression," said Rabbi Simcha Backman of the Chabad Jewish Center in Glendale. The history behind the celebration dates back more than 2,000 years to the victory of the Jewish army of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, which had tried to make the Jews renounce their faith, said Rabbi Richard Schechter of Glendale Temple Sinai.
