Par•a•dise [par-uh-dahys, -dahyz] a state of supreme happiness; bliss. If there is a paradise, I imagine there will be ample parking and meters that never run out; no taxes, co-pays, high-premium health insurance or any need for guns. Everyone will get their own jet pack, too. And ice cream. Most definitely, there will be ice cream. Luckily, for those still searching for paradise, there is Paradis.

More than 40 youngsters filled bowls with ice cream topped with sprinkles, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. But this was no ice cream shop. This was Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School’s kindergarten orientation on Wednesday. The Parent Teachers Assn. and the Woodlanders Volunteer organization (WAVE) pulled out 12 gallons of ice cream from the freezer and even the most timid students opened up. “Ice cream seems to be the common denominator to break the ice,” said Launa Penza, PTA president at Verdugo Woodlands Elementary.

Ice cream. Two words that bring a smile to your face, a tickle in your tummy and a cure for what ails you on a long, hot day. Though our kids get a summer break, the world and its trials don't. Now, in addition to camp, work, sports, cooking, cleaning, catering and cohabitating, we get an adhesive, smothering, smoggy heat for a couple months. But have some ice cream at the end of a blistering day, preferably after the little angels have been safely and securely duct-taped in bed, and the universe begins to spin on its axis once more.

As a former Ticktocker who graduated from National Charity League in 1995, I am saddened by the closing of Twelve Oaks Lodge . My memories of Twelve Oaks began when I was a kindergartner at my first Easter egg hunt with the residents. We all wanted to find the golden egg and the residents were all there to help us. There were ice cream socials on Sundays, secret Santas, countless bingo games, afternoon barbecues and cherished hours of getting to know the residents. Ruth, a survivor of the Holocaust, opened my eyes to what it was to overcome a horrific young adulthood.

"Sometimes we feel we straddle two cultures; at other times, that we fall between two stools," wrote Salman Rushdie. His words are the essence of what it means to be part of a diaspora, a word with Greek origins meaning “scattering.” It is the quintessential feeling that arises when someone, somewhere asks me the question, “Where are you from?” and expects a short, one word answer. If you're part of a diaspora, there is no short answer, there is no one place and no simple explanation as to how you ended up where you did. “Where are you from?

Q. My mom is in a nursing home and I visit her three times a week after work. My sister visits also. What should we be aware of? You want to have a good relationship with the nurses and treat them with the respect they deserve, but you still need to be your mom's advocate, especially if she can't speak for herself. You should trust, but also verify, that she is getting good care. You cannot immediately assume everyone is going to be terrible, but you cannot immediately assume that you are going to get the best care the system has to offer, either.

No one can argue that Glendale Unified's dual-language academy isn't a solid success story. From meager beginnings, the Foreign Language Academy of Glendale has swelled to claim nine campuses and roughly 1,400 students who are taught in English and six optional second languages, with the goal of reaching fluency by the time they graduate. The program, fed in large part by enthusiastic parents, has also been a boon for Glendale Unified, attracting out-of-district students at a time when enrollment - a key factor in state funding formulas - had been slipping.

With the incredibly hot weather we’ve been having here in the 818 lately, there’s really no better way to beat the heat than with a nice cold ice cream cone.  There are so many ice cream chains around town such as Baskin Robbins, Pinkberry and Cold Stone Creamery, but I’ve always preferred smaller, privately-owned places that offer real, homemade ice cream, which is why I was so excited to recently discover Paradis in...
