Writing and self-publishing a children’s book about the friendship between a monkey too scared to swing and a giraffe may suffice in the land of imagination, but Glendale resident Mindy Goldhammer creates bonds of her own outside the world of make-believe camaraderie. Goldhammer recently completed her two-year project to write and self-publish her first children’s story, “Open Your Eyes,” about the friendship between Handoo, a vervet monkey, Hingles the giraffe, and a rhinoceros.

Janine Marnien It was a lesson in friendship students at Crescenta-Canada Co-Operative Nursery School learned Tuesday as they made their own version of Stone Soup. One by one, the four-year-old students dropped in slices of potatoes they cut -- with plastic knives, of course -- and added salt and pepper and friendship stones, the main ingredient. Each student brought something to contribute to the recipe. The lesson was modeled after the book "Stone Soup," and many students said they learned the importance of sharing just like the pilgrim characters in the story.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN Webster's Dictionary defines friendship as "intimacy and mutual attachment; a friendly relationship, especially one of long standing." Lately, I have been thinking a lot about friendship and how much I care for my friends -- past and present. Friendship makes our lives so very rich! I liken it to dessert after a meal. No, you don't really need it to survive, per se, but life is so much sweeter when you partake in it. But then again, maybe we really do require it -- friendship, that is. I consider my best friends and how I would not make it at times without their assistance, their ear to listen and their prayers.

Rosette Gonzales Leonard Newman didn't look at another woman for 16 years after his wife died, but when Evangeline Castaneda sat down at his dining room table at Summerville at Casa Glendale, Newman took notice. "It just happened naturally," said Newman, who had been married 42 years. When he moved to Casa Glendale, an assisted-living residence, more than two years ago, Newman didn't plan to find love. "It's not really a physical attraction," said Newman, although he does refer to Castaneda as a "cute little pixie."

Cindy Trane Christeson "After the friendship of God, a friend's affection is the greatest treasure here below." -- Unknown "I feel so blessed, I think I'm going to burst!" I wrote in my journal recently. Though perhaps that isn't the prettiest word picture, it summed up my feelings quite well. It was my birthday, and I was totally spoiled by many wonderful celebrations with family and friends. I was given special cards, which I've now read over and over.

The great thing about children is that they are blind when it comes to skin color. Most, if not all, children I have met don't pay attention to their friends' skin colors or cultural ancestry. They make friends with someone who has the same interests they do. Race or ethnicity is not a factor when they pick and choose who to be friends with. The same can't be said about many adults. Recently, I paid a visit to Columbus Elementary School in Glendale and attended the school's annual multicultural assembly.

There is a place in the borderlands between Burbank and Glendale, in the seam that's neither city, though some map surely has decided, where food and life intersect. Not here nor there, it's tucked in the corner of a strip mall, defying limits, definition and time, in the way old friendships should. And it's here, at Sushi Nishi-Ya while on a “man date” with an old friend, that I discovered a new word for friendship and for food: Omakase. “Chef's choice.” “Just tell me what you don't like,” the signs on the window and wall above the bar exclaim.

Erik Boal Long before Jason Jenkins and Jason Turner were making opponents' lives miserable from their inside linebacker position on the football field, they were frustrating their opposition -- and each other -- on the baseball diamond. Jenkins and Turner, both La Crescenta residents, 17-year-old seniors and two-way starters at Crescenta Valley and St. Francis highs, respectively, have known each other since the fifth grade, when the dynamic, intense and often mischievous duo played on the Crescenta Valley Little League-based team City, which competed in the Major Baseball (11-and 12-year-old)

CITY HALL — A Glendale police officer filed a lawsuit against the city this week, claiming he was unfairly demoted because of his friendship with another officer suing the Police Department for discrimination. In January, four Armenian officers and a former officer filed a federal lawsuit against the department, alleging repeated on-the-job racial discrimination and harassment. This week, police Officer Marc Mendoza filed a separate lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging that he was recently demoted from detective to patrol officer because of his friendship with Sgt. Vahak Mardikian, one of the five plaintiffs in the other case.
