Andy Gersh's first solo exhibition at the Burbank Creative Arts Center, "GLASS: Contemporary Fusion," with its fantastic bursts of color, clever titles and shapes lives up to the glass artist's motto: "This is not your grandmother's stained glass." There are 100 pieces in the display that range from $150 to more than $2,000 as well as a few pieces that are not for sale, including "Zen Garden," a plate-shaped piece with horizontal grain brushes of white and purple, and "3-Martini Lunch," a framed geometric piece that evokes a 1960s retro feel.

Re: “ It's the last straw at Rocky Cola ,” Dec. 28. What a shame to lose this fine establishment. I have been going there since it first opened. In those days the local (Foothills area) choices for family dining included Bob's, Dominick's and Conrad's, all of which are now closed. The nostalgic atmosphere of Rocky Cola was the initial draw, but the wide variety of menu choices and great service are what always brought me back. I really hope that another family-oriented restaurant will occupy the space.

A holiday stained-glass exhibit with pieces more than 500 years old wasn’t just impressive because of the craftsmanship of its panels, visitors said, but also because of what they depicted. The seasonal exhibit at Forest Lawn Museum, which runs through Jan. 11 and holds the largest collection of stained glass in North America, includes images of the life of Jesus Christ. “It’s God’s words in stained glass,” said visitor Lone Rasmussen, an Antelope Valley resident who was standing in front of an illuminated, 16th-century window depicting the birth of Jesus.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope or confidence.” — Helen Keller   Wikipedia describes optimism as “an inclination to put the most favorable construction upon actions and events or to anticipate the best possible outcome.” Optimists generally believe that people and events are inherently good, so that most situations work out in the end for the best. Alternatively, some optimists believe that regardless of the external world or situation, one should choose to feel good about it and make the most of it. Do you choose the glass to be half full or half empty?

Laguna Beach prides itself on being an artist colony, where a spectrum of art genres thrive -- but who knew the performance art of beer pouring could fit into that category? This art form will be featured at 5 p.m. Tuesday when Brussels Bistro owner Alain Pauwels and manager John John McEvilly, both Belgium natives, compete to see who has perfected the art of beer pouring. They will represent Laguna Beach in the Orange County qualifier for the Stella Artois World Draught Master Competition.

What a mess. Broken glass from the left-side window in front of the Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader lay strewn about the inside of our building. Someone, for unknown reason or motivation, destroyed one of our panel windows late Friday or in Saturday's pre-dawn hours. On Saturday afternoon, I gave my report to a Glendale police patrol officer, after making an unusual weekend commute to see the damage. It's ugly. A gaping hole was below the papers' logos, and spider-web cracks of green safety glass crawled up the sides of the panel.

Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to leave Burbank or Glendale. Once you're outside those city limits, all bets are off. People behave in odd and confounding ways. It's a jungle out there, baby! Always remember that. Let me begin here by first acknowledging that what I'm about to describe qualifies as a middle-class white guy issue. It's trivial in the grand scheme of daily existence. But still. It was a couple of weeks ago that my wife, Jill, and I ditched town and drove up the coast to picturesque Big Sur for a long-planned, five-night trip.

How many times has it been said that books are doorways? Open them and you can take little journeys through the minds of authors or the subject's landscapes. Artist Susan Sironi has taken that metaphor and manipulated it in a very personal way. In what amounts to an act of reductive sculpture, she literally takes a scalpel to the concept and reshapes it. Sironi alters the terrain of books and renders new sets of coordinates within each. In so doing, she invests objects with new experiential material.

When Samad Firdosy bought the two-bedroom, one-bath home in La Crescenta in 2005, it was a fairly conventional single-story ranch house - with one difference. The house was nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and bordered in back by a 6-acre watershed owned by the Los Angeles County Flood Control District. But it failed to take advantage of its rustic landscape and mountain views. Firdosy says he purchased the house intending to add more space but just couldn't visualize how. So the Jet Propulsion Lab materials engineer called a friend - Ali Jeevanjee of LOC Architects in downtown L.A. - to design an addition for him. Jeevanjee had grown up with him and done a renovation for Firdosy's parents, the Los Angeles Times reports . The La Crescenta property had little backyard space, and there was a protected oak tree in front - chopping it down would have required city approval.

Marshalls, a discount clothing retailer, is moving into the long-vacant former Borders store at Broadway and Brand in downtown Glendale. The building on the prime location at 100 S. Brand Blvd. stands out because of its unique glass-front design. It's been vacant since Borders was shuttered in April 2011. Randy Leano, project manager for McKently Malak Architects in Pasadena, said it is company policy for Marshalls stores to open either before summer or before the fall holiday season, and this location is aiming for an autumn opening.

Burbank police are urging families to be vigilant when visiting city parks after broken glass was found buried beneath playground slides at Johnny Carson Park on two separate occasions this month. Officers said they do not have any hard evidence indicating that the glass was placed at the site purposely, but that the investigation remains open. “We can't say for certain that it was intentional, but the gut feeling is it probably was,” said Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada.

Time to pre-soak your fairy costumes, dust off the plastic crowns, load your camera with fresh batteries and escort your little prince or princess to the Glendale Centre Theatre for a special kind of fun.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — A 59-year-old Glendale man was arrested Thursday after locking himself in his home garage with a gun after arguing with his estranged wife — whom he later repeatedly called from jail, police said. The man, Andranik Ghaghian, and his wife began arguing after she told him that he had a drinking problem, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. He allegedly had been drinking for several days. At some point during the argument, Ghaghian removed a gun from under a couch cushion and threatened to kill her if she didn't leave him alone, Lorenz said.
