Ryan Carter Over the din of power tools and hammers, three Habitat for Humanity homes on Gardena Avenue are almost done. The effort got a little volunteer help Thursday from people who usually are producing cartoons, not standing atop scaffolding and ladders building a house. Employees from DisneyToon Studios in Burbank helped in the effort this week to build the two-story, 1,200-square-foot homes. "It's a great opportunity to spend part of our day helping out people who need housing," said Chris Brock, a background artist for the animation division, which produces video and theatrical productions.

Amber Willard NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Jane Escoto wasn't wearing her patriotism on her sleeve Wednesday afternoon, but she did have it on her thumb. As she gave blood at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' blood drive, Escoto ran her finger over her thumb, which was painted with a miniature Old Glory. She had signed up for the church's blood drive before four planes were hijacked and crashed Sept. 11 on the East Coast. The attacks just fueled her desire to donate.

Darleene Barrientos Before filing papers to run for the Glendale Community College trustee board, Linda Sheffield was mostly known to her family and the community at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since then, city officials and political candidates from other municipal races now recognize her name. And coincidentally or not, she gets better service now when she asks questions at the college. "It's a little disconcerting when you call and want to speak to somebody, they say, 'Oh, they're busy,'" Sheffield said.

Lani Reynolds There are many different "families" we can talk about strengthening: The human family, our neighborhood family, the community family, school, church, and sports families. The most important though is the family within our own home. When we strengthen that family, all the others are strengthened, too. Living in harmony with true principles will strengthen our families the most. If we believe that service brings happiness, are we providing those opportunities in our home?
