Though most of my musical life has been spent in the realms of classical, sacred, and folk music, with a lot of attention to children's choral music, I now count myself an avid Glendale Pops fan. I'll give you three reasons I love Glendale Pops. Glendale Pops is a program of Glendale Arts at the beautiful and iconic Alex. Glendale Arts has been a terrific partner with the Glendale Unified School District and the Glendale Educational Foundation, not to mention all the other civic and business organizations it supports.

Mothers. Can't live with them. Wouldn't exist without them. Because asexual reproduction works only with certain species of frogs and turkeys. But beyond the biological oddities and the curious need to take away my drinking glass before I'm done with it, I still can't figure you mothers out. Seriously. You get one day a year to be pampered and served, given your choice to do anything you desire, and what do you want? I asked some of you, and here is what I heard back.

Love was in the air at the luncheon for the Founders Guild of Glendale Adventist Medical Center. The hospital's auditorium was standing room only on Valentine's Day. Upon checking in, every guest received a Swarovski crystal necklace, heart-shaped of course. A silent auction allowed visitors more opportunities to part with their money for charity. Harp music performed by Duquessa McGuffin accompanied a buffet lunch of heart-healthy chicken, rice and kale. Dessert was strictly decadent - red velvet cupcakes.

Mary Burkin Odalys Nanin co-wrote (with Maria Barrientos), co-directed (with Johanna Siegmann) and personally produced "Love Struck," at the Victory Theatre, which she describes in the program notes as "a candid look into the ups and downs of a relationship regardless of the sexuality of the couple involved." Not one to stay idle when the curtain goes up, Nanin also turns in a first-rate performance as rough-edged Laura, one-half of the two-female Latina cast.

Dear La Crescenta, my beloved hometown, birthplace of my children, home to my school alma maters, land that I love: I need to say something important to you. Ready? I’m sorry. Truly remorseful. Apparently, I hurt the one I love with my column last week. So, to my friends, neighbors and fellow La Crescentans, consider this Chase duly chastened. What did I do? It seems as though I inadvertently tweaked some of my fellow citymates with observations about a few perceived differences between our humble homeland and that of our upscale neighbor to the east, La Cañada-Flintridge.

Today (Sept. 14) is a day of national prayer, and I am praying for a day of global understanding. A day where there will be no prejudice, no hatred and no ignorance. A day that we can bridge our societal divide and a day in which love would prevail. From Buddha to Jesus to Baha'i, all we have heard is to embrace love. So, when can we reach this enlightenment? Is 4,000 years not enough time to lift ourselves to these higher thoughts? I hear people speaking of retaliation.

With the approach of Valentine’s Day, I can’t help but think of my wife’s uncle, Leo Buscaglia. It was his favorite day of the year, and literally millions of people around the world associated him with it, being as it was a celebration of love. I’ve mentioned him before in this space, and for any of you who are unfamiliar with the man, allow me to introduce you. Leo was known as “Dr. Hug” by the many who listened to and loved his message. He wasn’t entirely comfortable with that title (people who came to hear him speak would wait for hours after his lecture just to get a hug)

There is no better way to show love this Valentine's Day than to give the gift of food. That's the sentiment the Salvation Army of Glendale is hoping to spread this weekend with the “Love Food Drive.” The nonprofit service provider saw a 20% decline from 2012 to 2013 in food donations, which help feed 700 local residents who include working families in need of meal assistance. The decline has led to a significant shortage in food supplies that would generally keep the Salvation Army's pantry stocked.

As Valentine's Day approaches, five local couples shared their stories of how they met with the News-Press. Below is the first couple's story. Brenda Gant had a crush on Jeff Hughes in third grade, but nothing ever came of it - until roughly four decades later. The two grew up together in La Crescenta, going to the same elementary, middle and high schools. They were classmates, but never close friends. After their senior year, their lives took divergent paths. Both married other people.

Finally something in this city will honor one of the greatest film icons of our time. John Wayne was truly a dedicated Glendalian and loved this city. I met John Wayne while paving the street in front of his Newport Beach home back in 1973. When he came out I casually mentioned to him that I was a student at Glendale High School. The next thing I knew I was invited in his home and having a sandwich. I was treated like a long lost cousin. He peppered me with questions about Glendale and Glendale High.

The oddly shaped building at the corner of Chevy Chase Drive and Acacia Avenue in south Glendale houses a rather unique paired product offering. In the back, per a big sign that reads, simply “Laundry,” is a coin-operated laundromat. At the front, for more than two years now, there's made-from-scratch chili courtesy of the David Brothers Chili Parlor. Eric David, 37, and Judd David, 33, grew up in Long Island with another brother, Yoni. While their younger sibling remains on the East Coast pursuing a music career, the two older David brothers commute daily from Venice and Mar Vista, respectively, to tend to their growing business.

When Anna Djanbazian lost her brother after his battle with colon cancer, she grieved the only way that seemed natural to her - through dance. “As soon as it happened, I felt I needed to do something,” she said. It took Djanbazian, who owns and directs the La Crescenta-based Djanbazian Dance Academy, nearly a year to create her latest ballet-theater piece, “Priceless Soul,“ as she faced the ups and downs of mourning her brother's death. “It was like reliving every moment that I had in my life,” she said.

Amid the carolers and choruses who will volunteer in local holiday performances this month, one longtime group offers what they hope will be something a little different. The Van Bloem Singers plan to entertain with relatively modern Christmas music and show tunes at seven locations this month, continuing what musical director Elaine Paonessa believes must be at least 20 years of community service. VIDEO GALLERY: The Van Bloem Singers performance at the Broadview Residential Care Center in Glendale “Over the years, we've performed for them, and they've just kept having us back,” said Paonessa, 86, who is also active in the Burbank community.

Guitarist Jim "Kimo" West divides his time between two dramatically different musical worlds. His mainstay job is as lead guitarist from the famed, freewheeling musical satirist Weird Al Yankovic, but West's heart and soul are completely invested in the lush exotic Hawaiian slack-key acoustic guitar style. "I've been playing guitar since I was 12, started in with rock bands at 16, and I've been playing lead guitar for Weird Al Yankovic for a long time," West said. "But a while back, I was invited to go to Hawaii and ended up staying with a family who had a lot of slack-key records.
