Amber Willard AUTRY MUSEUM -- The stars smiled on the Autry Museum of Western Heritage Sunday afternoon -- the Lucky Stars, that is. The six-man band decked out in cowboy hats and Western shirts performed three sets of 1940s and 50s-style country music Sunday as part of a concert series at the museum. The genre of music, sometimes called Western Swing, drew dancers onto the wood stage and had others dancing on the balconies above the courtyard where the Lucky Stars played.

Welcome to the second installment of the Crescenta Valley Columnist Contest. During the next few weeks, the Glendale News-Press will be featuring several new voices vying for a regular spot in this space. After everyone has had their turn, we?ll turn the process over to our readers, giving you the chance to help choose the winner. ? My Family Circle magazine arrived today and on the cover was listed ?Ten Best Towns for Families.? I quickly flipped through the pages to see if La Crescenta was on the list and, to my relief, found that our little secret is still safe.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Fifteen-year-old Mihran Houhannesyan raised his right hand, said a few words, and picked up his citizenship certificate moments later, getting a high-five and hug from his mother. But there was a problem. "I don't like the picture," Mihran said. No matter, the Glendale resident was granted citizenship Thursday in a ceremony of more than 110 people representing 28 countries, organizers said. "This is the paper," Mirhan's mother, Vardanush Houhannesyan, said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — For a moment, it appeared that the Hoover High softball team might possibly derail Burbank’s hope for a league championship. The Tornadoes had made the key defensive plays and received the clutch hits through the first six innings. The seventh inning proved to be another story. Burbank scored three runs in the top of the seventh to come away with a 6-4 Pacific League road victory Tuesday afternoon. A line drive single with one out by Megan Schafer glanced off Hoover’s first baseman and drove in two runs to give Burbank a 5-4 lead.

From the EDITOR'S Desk by KATHERINE GOULD When I was a child, I loved Christmas. Now that I'm an adult and I have children of my own, Christmas is just a load of stress. And toys are the worst of it. Each Christmas, there is one toy that provides enough frustration to last for the rest of the year. One year it was the playhouse that required three adults to construct. The next year it was the teeter-totter that WOULD NOT go together. (That one actually defeated me. I put it back in the garage and for once thanked my lucky stars that my girls' birthdays are a week later.

Hamlet Nalbandyan SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- The only thing funnier than seeing some would-be tackler trying bring down Glendale's Vladimir Paniouchkine with an arm tackle is hearing the game announcer attempting to pronounce the junior fullback's name. "That's Glendale's No. 24 with the carry, Vlaaadimir Panniaoushhhh..." After a few seconds of silence, the poor announcer usually tries it again, before eventually stumbling and giving up altoghether.

Recently, I experienced firsthand the skyrocketing cost of healthcare. Before I go any further, this commentary is not about bashing hospitals, criticizing doctors, pharmaceutical companies, nurses, or the quality of medical care. Far from it. This commentary is about the incredibly high cost of being sick and of needing hospital and medical care in this land of the free and home of the brave. My experience started when I was admitted to a hospital's intensive care unit a few weeks ago. Looking back at my experience, I am thrilled to report that I feel privileged, blessed and deeply grateful for the outstanding, vigilant, conscientious, and superb care I received from my physicians, nurses and hospital staff.

TRACEY MILLER OK. Let's go get some coffee! I need it! I have to have my brain ready for the day! I know, let's go to one of the big coffee shops in our town. As we know, there will be plenty of people getting their fix before the day gets moving. The one question I do have is how many of the coffee drug drinkers are teenagers who grab their plastic cups before they head to school? When the subject of drugs comes up we seldom, if ever, evaluate the coffee bean as the drug of choice.
