The fact that he is 86 years old doesn't mean much to Minas Houseffian. He goes swimming once a week, spends time with his children, grandchildren and wife and still has the energy to do what he calls "God's work." Once a week, Houseffian takes the bus from his Glendale home to the chapel of Glendale Adventist Medical Center and prays. Every Monday he prays with more than 60 of the sick and tired, the downtrodden and listless and the people in the hospital who just need someone around.

Patrick Caneday’s excellent marital advice put me in mind of a couple of newlyweds, myself and Nadine, when we spent our honeymoon traveling across the country, way back in 1972. I have relatives in New York and New Jersey and they all wanted to meet the newest Kimber. I was especially looking forward to introducing my favorite aunt, Margaret, to Nadine. She was, among other things, the best cook I knew. One of her specialties was blueberry muffins, made from scratch and with blueberries picked from her back yard.

Danger on 210 in LCF The reason I am writing this letter today is to save lives here. On Friday, March 10, I entered the 210 freeway going east, and was going to exit on Angeles Crest Highway. If you will remember, it started to hail that day, simultaneously as I entered the freeway. I felt my car lift off the road, and I started to hyrdroplane, into the right two lanes, into the left two lands and back and forth about five times, steering into it and not braking, as I remembered from driver's ed. Never before have I been more frightened and horrified.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Willber Garay's parents sat by their son's hospital bed Monday afternoon just as they had done for several weeks. They each held what had become near-lifeless hands -- his energy drained from fighting brain cancer for eight months. Suddenly, Willber's hands came to life, gripping his parents hands back tightly, remembered his father Hector. A few minutes later, Willber, 17, laughed, then died. "God chose to take him," Hector said.

Jim Riggio PASADENA -- Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Jim Smiley was not a happy man following his team's 66-48 Pacific League loss to Pasadena High. For one, Smiley was the first to admit his team played poorly. The Falcons shot just 16 of 47 from the field. "We got outplayed. We were timid," Smiley said. "They did not get back on defense well. Our halfcourt sets were horrible and that's due to Pasadena and not us. Pasadena outplayed us in every facet of the game."

GLENDALE ? In honor of the labor movement he started and of the living legacy he left behind, about 200 people of all ages gathered at Pacific Edison Auditorium on Thursday to commemorate the birthday of civil rights icon César Chávez. Put on by the City of Glendale, the event was the seventh annual César Chávez Commemorative Event, which has been scheduled each year since 2001 to fall near Chávez's March 31 birthday. Chavez died in 1993 at age 66. "This is always a special time of the year, not only for Latinos, but for working people across the state and country," City Councilman Frank Quintero said.

GLENDALE ? The Glendale Community College football team begins Northern Conference National Division play against Ventura College at 7 p.m. today. Despite having four nonconference games in the rear-view, no clear picture has emerged of what this Vaqueros squad is really capable of entering the crucial six-game stretch of conference play. From game to game, and sometimes even from quarter to quarter, the steadiness of the team?s play has fluctuated to the extent that its 2-2 record would indicate.

This might be an annual award-giving-free- spirited-going-to-have- fun-with-it column. Or it might be a one-hit wonder. I don't know. All I know is this: I need to write an amusing column that actually makes sense. And since the boss is on vacation, I might as well have some fun. And so, I thought of this idea: A season-ending reflection on the local baseball and softball scene, with a twist. One of the greatest movies of all time is "Braveheart."

The man departs, but the childhood memory remains vivid. Bobby Thomson passed away last month, little more than a year shy of the 60th anniversary of baseball's most dramatic moment — the walk-off home run that gave the 1951 New York Giants the National League pennant. Thirteen-and-a-half games back on Aug. 11, the Giants had caught the Brooklyn Dodgers on the last day of the season, forcing a playoff. My dad was a native of Bobby Thomson's birthplace: Glasgow, Scotland.
