We stood by a stone marking the center of the universe, the surrounding hills forming a magnificent natural amphitheater facing the Gulf of Corinth. This was Delphi, home of the oracle and center of the ancient world. I was with my wife, Tita, and our friends, Theo and Matina. Greece is steeped in history. We had just driven through Thermopylae, where, in 480 BC, King Leonidas and 300 Spartans were slaughtered while trying to hold off 10,000 invading Persians.

A regular at Jax Bar and Grill, local artist Aram Athniel is known to sketch visitors and musicians on square napkins while they eat, drink and listen. Born in Iraq, Athniel, an 18-year resident of Glendale, studied art at the University of Baghdad and has lived and created art in Greece and Australia. Having sketched in the streets of Athens and Sydney, the 58-year-old Assyrian-Armenian finds excitement in the avenues of Glendale and captures moments using his graphite sketching tool that has traveled with him for 35 years.

The city's investment portfolio continues to get pinched amid slow economic recovery, officials reported this week, ending $11 million down compared to the previous fiscal quarter. With the third quarter results out, the $385-million portfolio has now been on a downward trend for more than a year. “In a nutshell, it's not getting easier out there,” City Treasurer Ron Borucki told the City Council on Tuesday. The rate of return for the third quarter dropped 10 basis points to 1.02% at the end of March, according to a city report.

GLENDALE — Brian Goorjian watched Australia's men's basketball team pull off a stunner in its first preliminary-round game of the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Hamamatsu, Japan.

Two days after blowing a 14-point halftime lead against Turkey, Goorjian and Australia lost another lead and suffered their second consecutive Group C loss Tuesday, falling to Greece, 72-69.

Chuck Benedict Had she often wondered what life would be like at the age of 100? Would she be well and sharp and still think young? A stranger, visiting near her 100th birthday (April 5), saw her youthfulness. Where were the wrinkles, downcast eyes, withered skin? These usual old-age symptoms had been bypassed in the life of a Glendale lady who lives alone amid a yard of personally nurtured flowers, surrounding a human fountain of youth. It has been her home for 50 years.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Tuesday was supposed to be a fairly eventful day for locals in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Although Glendale boxer Vanes Martirosyan isn't scheduled to fight again until Thursday, La Canada High graduate Peter Wells and Crescenta Valley grad Brian Goorjian were slated to be pretty busy on the fourth day of the 28th Olympiad. But thanks to Mother Nature, just Goorjian and his Australian men's basketball team competed Tuesday, as Wells was given the day off after slow winds forced event organizers to postpone the men's mistral races until today.

Colorful cartoon figures dressed in togas adorned a poster board as Katherine Paguinto and her teammates at Columbus Elementary School put the finishing touches on their artwork depicting the life of the Spartans. But Katherine's group had a greater task to perform. The group worked on making a persuasive argument to their classmates about why Sparta would be a better place to live in ancient Greece than Athens. "In Sparta, women have rights, unlike in Athens," Katherine, 11, said.

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall Occasionally my odds and ends drawer overflows, requiring some sorting out. There are so many items stuffed in my "column topic" file, a mental equivalent of the odds and ends drawer, that I can't find time and space to cover them all. So, today we'll sort through a few. One reader wrote, "Did I miss your E3 2005 column?" referring to the video game trade show at the Los Angeles Convention Center. I skipped E3this year due to a bum knee. I couldn't handle a trek through nearly 45 acres of exhibits.

Glendale Community College students have something to cheer about in a friendly new spot to eat that is just across the street. Dino’s Cucina is not exactly new though. Owner Kostantinos Liosis, better known as Dino, used to run a tasty Greek spot here called the Athenian Grill but he found his hearty Mediterranean plates were too much food for students wanting a quick bite between classes. He’s turned his skills to pizzas, calzones, paninis, salads and pastas now. It’s New York-style Italian fare with Dino’s signature Greek overtones.
