I read with great interest the letters covering the vandalism at the War Memorial in Montrose. Let me put a few concerned minds at ease. The good news: The War Memorial and the flowers placed there were not vandalized! My father has owned Custom Photographic Services in Montrose for many years. The memorial is in clear view of our main window. It was indeed a moving sight to see so many residents stop there to reflect and quietly remember those who served and did not return home to our valley.

A close friend thinks Valentine’s Day is a stupid holiday. I am not sure if I agree. Any holiday that can stir up so much commotion is in some way significant. The same friend thinks the holiday is for girls. Meaning, the occasion is significant only to the female segment of the population. This is not necessarily a chauvinistic opinion; the friend happens to be a woman. Although, I am not sure how that works. If you are a woman, can you be sexist? Or if you are a minority, can you still be a bigot?

Rima Shah Council members are on board with this year's Rose Parade Float design. The 2006 Rose Float design was unanimously approved Tuesday night by the City Council, giving the design its official stamp of approval and the go-ahead to start building the float. "It's comical," said Councilman Dave Weaver, also the crew chief for decorating the float. "It's a train with a face, and it's not like the concept hasn't been done before, but it'll definitely stand out among the other floats."

Alex Coolman NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Frances Frenzel had a birthday party on Sunday, and she wanted everything to be right. She made little brownie cakes for all her guests, and she put together the flower arrangements herself: pink stargazer lilies nestled in white orchids. "I thought, 'I'm going to make 'em something good,' " Frenzel said, chuckling at the idea. Frenzel just turned 90, an age at which many people might consider letting someone else handle these kinds of details.

Glendale Assistance League The hats came out for the Glendale Assistance League's April 25 Mad Hatter Tea. Chairwoman Deb Ann Orfalea organized the historical League Clubhouse at 314 E. Harvard Street into an elegant, elaborate tea house. Her centerpiece looked like a tall, flowered hat but was actually tiny cupcakes arranged with flowers and bows. League members on the hospitality team were up late cooking up tiny delicate edibles or up early at the flower mart picking the best flowers to make their arrangements.

Janine Marnien It used to be a plain, white wall students in Angie Thomas' first-grade class at Lincoln Elementary School had to stare at outside their classroom window. But with some help from students from Crescenta Valley High School's art club and the kindergarten classes at Lincoln, the view is slowly being transformed into one of spring images. The students are painting a mural on the wall, with blue skies, white puffy clouds, green grass and a variety of flowers.
