Glendale’s entries into the Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade have been constructed by a series of designers. With the centennial of the city’s first official float rapidly approaching, it seems appropriate to revisit some of those talented people.

Chobe, a city employee, lent his talents to the cause and his floats brought home a prize each year.

One such new technology is DIAGNOdent, a hand-held, portable unit designed to scan a patient’s tooth for cavities without the need to scrape the tooth. The tool is about as big as a large Sharpie and contains an LCD display.

Ryan Carter Color and quiet. It was nice to see and hear it after four months of tan and brown landscapes and the roar of C-130 cargo aircraft turbines, said Maj. Raffi Najarian, a California Air National Guardsman called up to provide medical support in the war in Iraq. But the din of war and the drab scenery gave Najarian, 39, a new perspective.

Traffic was heavy that morning, and the cab driver grew frustrated and eventually ordered Ms. Ingham to pay for that part of the ride that had been completed; however, he told her to exit his cab so he could get to his coffee shop and meet his friends. This was a full two blocks from the dentist's office she was attempting to visit.
