In his heart there was always a Missouri farm boy who could regale with stories of the joys of growing up in the country. In 1940 he and his younger brother left Missouri to drive a brand new1941 Pontiac to Los Angeles for delivery to an auto dealer. It was the first time they had been west of Missouri.

In search of the right path to mixed-martial-arts stardom, the journeys of Sevak Magakian and Karen Darabedyan have taken them to the country's heartland. On Saturday night at the O'Reilly Family Event Center in Springfield, Mo., the Glendale fighters will take an important step when they venture inside the cage at ShoFight MMA 20. For Magakian (10-3), who faces off with Strikeforce and Bellator veteran JP Reese (6-2), a former University of Missouri wrestling standout, in a lightweight contest upon the main card, it will be a hopeful last step - provided a victory is to be had - before venturing into the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

KATHERINE YAMADA This year marks the 100th anniversary of two important events in Glendale's history: the arrival of the Red Cars and the completion of El Miradero in what is now Brand Park. Both were the product of L.C. Brand's drive and determination to succeed. I've just finished reading a Brand family history, written by Judy Brand of Colorado, which details much of Leslie Coombs Brand's life. He was born in 1859 in Missouri, one of several children of relatively prosperous parents.
