One of the more quixotic ventures in the current economic climate would be to start an orchestra in Southern California. It's a sure recipe for financial suicide. Yet that's just what cello soloist Ruslan Biryukov did when he founded the Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra three years ago. Is it a surprise, then, that the idea came out of a vodka party? The biggest surprise is that the GPO has thrived and begins its third season Sunday with “Holiday Gala.” “I throw a vodka tasting party every year,” explains the 34-year-old virtuoso.

DOWNTOWN GLENDALE — An 83-year-old Glendale man remains hospitalized after driving his 2003 Land Rover off the second story of a multi-story parking garage last week. Rafik Sarookhanian was pulling into a spot in a parking structure for the Park Towers condominium building at 345 Pioneer Drive, where he lives, when he accelerated instead of stepping on the brake, police said. Sarookhanian struck the metal guard rails and a cement structure before his SUV landed on its roof on Pioneer Drive.

An episode of NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” reported that a survey from the Pew Forum on Religion showed that a vast majority of Americans, nearly 80%, believe in miracles. The results are from a wider study, “Religion Among the Millennials.” What is, in your opinion, the definition of a miracle? What does your religion teach about miracles? And have you ever been witness to one? In the context of this week’s question, the word “miracle” brings to mind divine intervention, or other phenomena not explainable by nature.

Regarding the value to the city in having Frank Quintero serving again, we need only look to Frank Quintero's 14 year service record, which is exemplary. That the City Council wisely saved an expensive, unneeded election and asked Quintero to return to service is good governance. That he came back is a miracle. But what do I know?

The miracle stands atop the fireplace, flanked by artisan crucifixes and flower bouquets left by worshipers from across the U.S. For the past two weeks, Glendale residents and visitors from Boston, New Jersey and elsewhere have come to Anahid Sallakian's single-family home to pray to a Virgin Mary statuette that's elicited tears and prayers. It's been covered in oil. Representatives from the Los Angeles Archdiocese did not respond to requests for comment, and leaders from neighboring St Mary's Armenian Apostolic Church were unavailable for comment.

Michael Martinez GLENDALE -- To Karen Berg, the Hanukkah potluck dinner party Friday night at her home was the ultimate o7 tzedekahf7 , or altruism. "The party itself is really about just getting together, about celebrating our community," said Berg, 17, a Glendale High senior who organized the dinner. "It was something I really wanted to do for the congregation. Including several people from Burbank, about 40 to 50 members of Congregation Hugat Haverim -- which Berg's mother, Jacqueline Gish, said means "circle of friends" -- attended the dinner and the formal Hanukkah services that followed.

It?s that time of the year when the so-called ?prestige pictures? start appearing in theaters. Most are turgid bores seeking awards over audience satisfaction. Too often films of this ilk are drained of life in their attempts at making the big statement about our times, upending what its makers set out to accomplish. Oscar gold has hypnotized even the most idiosyncratic filmmakers into making this mistake. They haven?t given firebrand Spike Lee an Academy Award yet, but he?s trolling for fool?

Christ was born into this world as an infant who grew into a boy and then a man. He came to save human beings and in the process mystified all, before and after his birth, and then after his death. This mystery began with Mary, then Joseph, and spread to other family members. From there, news of Christ's birth and life perplexed even the Jews — the very people Jesus called his own. Jesus' birth, life and death were very controversial. Have you ever wondered what Mary must have thought, felt and marveled about when an angel visited her and told her she was pregnant?

Three miracles happen each day: the sunrise, the sunset and a third you need to discover in between. Each day offers the chance to see something rare and beautiful. Usually, you have to seek it out. But sometimes, if you are lucky, it visits you. I'm no bird watcher. Yet I've written in this column about herons and mallards in the L.A. River, emerald parrots making cacophony overhead and omen-inducing ebony crows on the street in front of my home. Even a myna bird from some real or imagined childhood memory.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Kristen Laulette admitted the Foothill Major All-Star softball team was just about ready to give up on its season - facing an eight-run deficit heading into its final at-bats - until Emily Mulcahey called her team to action. "A lot of us were giving up on the bench, all sad, and Emily walked through and said, 'Guys, we can do this, why are you on the bench? Let's do this,'" Laulette said. "I got hyped up and everybody started getting hyped up. If one person does it, the entire team starts doing it. " Foothill rallied behind Mulcahey and scored eight runs on seven walks and three hits in the bottom of the sixth inning of the District 16 consolation bracket final against Crescenta Valley to send the game to an extra seventh inning, where the improbable comeback was completed with a walk-off hit by Laulette for a 14-13 victory at Scholl Canyon Park.

It's been a disaster since the Lawrence family moved to Glendale almost three months ago. First a hospital visit brought a hefty medical bill, then sentimental Christmas decorations were destroyed, and two weeks ago someone stole the $800 car the family bought with the last of their savings. It had two car seats in the back. “Right now is the worst possible time,” said Shannon Lawrence, who moved with her husband and two daughters from Charlottesville, Va., at the end of October.
