Darleene Barrientos A dim, smoky club isn't the only place where jazz can be found. Jazz can also be found at the park. That will be the case Saturday and Aug. 14, when the city launches the third phase of its "Music, Movies and More" series. If it proves popular, the city might also expand the kinds of musical performances offered in the park. This year's outdoor jazz concert will be the litmus test for similar events in the future, said Cheri Anderson, the center's community services supervisor.

Glendale has approved renewal of the annual contract with the Area Agency on Aging for senior meals, including a daily program at Sparr Heights Community Center. The contractor began July 1, but the formal renewal was delayed due to the renewal and approval process at the county level. The contract totals $187,270, and covers 40,168 congregate meals and 9,610 home delivered meals. Glendale sites are Sparr Heights, the Adult Center and Maple Park. The city provides a 15 percent match, and will use carry over funds from last year to cover a projected deficit of $7,931.

Amber Willard SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Glendale Police are searching for someone who fired a shot in Maple Park that traveled into a nearby home. A woman was grazed by the bullet, which had been damaged from possibly hitting trees in the park, shortly after 8:40 p.m. Saturday, police said. The incident was reported to police about two hours later. No one in the area called police to report hearing the shot fired, police said. The victim told police she heard the shot and then felt a sting in her lower back, but her skin was not broken by the shot.

Seniors poured onto the dance floor in couples as a dance mix of "Funky Town" and "Video Killed the Radio Star" jump-started Monday's festivities at the Glendale Adult Recreation Center's Valentine's Day lunch. About 130 seniors enjoyed lunch, dessert and entertainment at the center's senior cafe. Lunches are offered daily through the Glendale Adult Recreation Center and the Sparr Heights and Maple Park community centers, but coordinators created an extra-special atmosphere of love for Valentine's Day. Red and white balloons decorated centerpieces as old-time longtime sweethearts and singles dined and socialized.

Darleene Barrientos Standing under a patch of trees in line to get an American flag and a flower painted on her cheeks, Emileigh Shields took a break Tuesday from a round of carnival-style games. But her breather wasn't about to last long. Emileigh, 9, likes all the games, especially the ring toss, with one exception. "I'm going to play all of them again, except basketball," she said. Emileigh was one of several dozen children who urged their parents out of the house Tuesday to play games like ring toss, Putt-Putt golf and sack races at the city's annual Penny Carnival at Maple Park.
