Nicolas Ortega quite possibly owes his very existence to the city of Glendale. His parents first met as city employees more than 10 years ago. They are now supervisors in different departments, and on Thursday, they took 9-year-old Nicolas to work as part of an annual tradition in which Glendale?s municipal workplace turns into a family affair. He spent the first half of the day with his mom, Donna Hernandez, an office supervisor for Glendale Water & Power, and the second half with his dad, Bryan Ortega, a wastewater supervisor for the Public Works Department.

Marianne Love MONTROSE -- One might be surprised to walk into Kris Kline's La Crescenta home and find just one or two of them gracing the living room. Kline has been quilting since she signed up her daughter, Katie, for a sewing lesson when Katie was 10. Today, Katie is 17, and her mother has made nearly 100 quilts. "My most memorable quilt is the one Katie and I made when she was 13 years old," Kline said. "We used embroidered dish towels my great-grandmother left and cut out the embroidered motif and made a quilt block that we still have."

About 15 years ago, I wrote my first restaurant “review.” Our local paper asked readers to write up their favorite place, and mine was a 300-square-foot shack on a corner in La Cañada Flintridge with a smiling, friendly woman, and the most amazing sandwiches I had ever had. By now everyone in Los Angeles knows what a torta is, right? It’s even on Wikipedia. Tortas Poncho, the shack in La Cañada Flintridge, became Tortas Mexico, moved, moved again and has steadily grown.
