GLENDALE — In a game that La Crescenta Coach Rick Marquis basically characterized as a knockdown, drag out fight, it was the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars that were the last team standing. “It was a battle, it was fantastic pitching for both sides,” said Marquis just after La Crescenta defeated host Eureka, 4-2, in the opening round of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Pacific Southwest Regional late Thursday night at Babe Ruth Field in Eureka. La Crescenta will now play Tri-Valley, the Northern California champions, at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

GLENDALE — Off on a roundtrip that extends to more than 1,200 miles, the La Crescenta 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-Stars find themselves just south of the Oregon border and shouldered by the Pacific. At stake is a possible excursion to Utah and the Babe Ruth World Series, but for now, it’s all about the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Pacific Southwest Regional, which begins today and runs through Tuesday. “I told them we’re not talking about [the World Series],” La Crescenta Coach Rick Marquis said.

Robert Blechl GLENDALE -- Many residents got their first job there. Others strolled under its marquis with their first date. For almost 75 years, The Alex Theatre, home of pre-Depression Vaudeville acts and first-run movie releases, was a Glendale landmark at 216 N. Brand Blvd. Although it always retained a portion of its original flavor, the theater nevertheless became a victim of the whims of modernization. In the early 1990s, however, city officials undertook a concerted effort to return the structure to its early form both in appearance and entertainment offerings.

GLENDALE ? The La Crescenta 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team spent the entire weekend fending off elimination, thanks in large part to its bats coming alive in the final innings. Unfortunately for La Crescenta, it couldn?t do it one more time. La Crescenta saw its season end Monday night with a 12-1 loss to Alameda in an elimination game of the Pacific Southwest Regional at Babe Ruth Field in Eureka. The game was called in the middle of the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Artist Linda Marquis is thankful to her nieces and nephews, who inspired her to paint children as her subject matter. Marquis, 57, paints young children and animals, but has no formal training in art. She developed an interest in art when she owned and operated a crafts store in Glendale in the 1970s. Marquis took an art class as a means of expanding her knowledge about her business. She discovered she enjoyed painting and decided to develop her own niche. Her oil paintings of children interacting with animals or taking part in routine tasks, are favorite among art buyers.

Karen S. Kim When a celebrity like Madonna receives a large gift basket as a "thank you" from one of the local studios, there's a good chance it was the creation of Burbank business owner Lisa Marquis. Marquis, who owns Wrap it Up in Burbank, said about 75% of her business comes from studios like DreamWorks and KABC-TV Channel 7 in Glendale and Walt Disney, Warner Bros. and KNBC-TV Channel 4 in Burbank. Over the last 14 years, Marquis has built a relationship with the studios that has grown and prospered, she said.

A handful of 13- and 14-year-olds teased and laughed with one another as they sat under the heavy shade of mature trees Monday at Verdugo Park. They were blowing off steam from their morning Counselor-In-Training session, a 3-year-old city-sponsored program that is teaching them skills they can use the rest of their lives, Program Director Allison Marquis said. "They are learning how to be camp counselors," Marquis said. "We teach them a skill — like arts and crafts — and they have to turn around the next day and teach it to the kids."

With pit stops at a makeshift baseball diamond and jungle gym, a host of local children scurried about Verdugo Park, making the most of their weeklong spring break from school on Tuesday. Twenty-eight children participated in the city Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department's Spring Spectacular Camp Tuesday. For 11-year-old Lucas Vishnivetz, a sixth-grader at Thomas A. Edison Elementary School, the reason to come to camp is simple. "In school you can't play all day, but here you can," he said.

Glendale police are looking for two brothers, who ran away from home Wednesday morning due to apparent family issues. Ryan Handlin, 12, and Marquis Handlin, 11, were last seen about 7:30 a.m. in the 4100 block of La Crescenta Avenue in the Montrose-La Crescenta area, police said. The brothers recently moved in with their grandparents after their father died. Police said the boys' new home “was not the ideal situation.” Police don't suspect foul play, but were concerned about their safety because they are young boys.
