"We've been trying to itemize things that have been donated to us by members of the Hunt family." Meyer plans to invite Cardinale to the Doctors' House some time this month to celebrate her 80th birthday. Dr. Hunt died before Cardinale was born, and she had never been in the house until it was moved to Brand Park.

Tim Willert When Isabelle Meyer stepped down last month as curator of the historic Doctors' House Museum, she made sure to close the door to a change of heart. "I turned in my key to force myself to let go," Meyer said Thursday. Such is the hold the museum has had on the longtime Glendale resident, who spent nine years at the helm before resigning July 31. "I never thought it would be that big a part of my life," Meyer said. "It just kind of grew on me."

Joyce Rudolph NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- A candlelight dinner for two amid one's favorite music and fresh flowers. It sounds like something out of a Victorian novel.

One lucky couple will win this Valentine's Day prize through a fund-raising drawing conducted by the Glendale Historical Society. The four-course meal, prepared by La Fontana Restaurant, will be served by two docents in the Victorian dining room of the Doctors' House Museum.

GLENDALE — The Glendale Rose Float Assn. — the creative brains behind the city's annual entry into the Tournament of Roses Parade — got approval on Wednesday to go forward with what some say is one of the group's most ambitious float designs. The Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission unanimously approved the design of "Bon Voyage," the city's 2008 entry in the parade. In accordance with the parade's 2008 theme of "Passport to the World's Celebrations," Glendale's proposed entry will feature a biplane soaring away from the Glendale Grand Central Air Terminal, the city's defunct historic airport.
