I attended what was a sad event for me in Pasadena on July 20. It was the "groundbreaking" for the new A Noise Within theater there. What good fortune for Pasadena and its neighboring communities to proudly have, in about a year, an extraordinary repertory theater that consistently produces outstanding and entertaining "classics." The support for the theater by the Pasadena mayor, City Council and many other members of the Pasadena community was abundantly evident throughout the groundbreaking ceremony.

I wish you would instruct your restaurant reviewers about the city of Glendale. It is neither a part of, nor a suburb of, the city of Pasadena. It seems like nine out of 10 reviews in the Glendale News-Press are in Pasadena. Glendale has some nice restaurants - and some funky, undiscovered ones that we will never hear about because our “local” newspaper prefers to focus on a nearby city instead of our own. I like to eat out, but would never drive to Pasadena for a hamburger. Please support our local restaurants!

PASADENA - Whenever the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team visits Pacific League-foe Pasadena, the Falcons are usually quick to acknowledge that their game is affected by the Bulldogs' home-pool advantage. But even though the pool's snug confines served to rein in Crescenta Valley's transition game, they hardly proved to be much of an asset on Tuesday afternoon for Pasadena, which had no room to run from and no answer for the Falcons' continued season-long dominance on both sides of the ball.

Insurance agents, hoteliers and auto-body shops are among those who have seen a surge in business in the wake of wind storms that pummeled the region and knocked out power to thousands of Pasadena area residents Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. “We're real busy,” Ron Baker, owner of Baker's Auto Body in Pasadena, said Friday. “We've got a full house, and a full house coming in next week.” Baker said he's fielding eight inquiries a day from people whose cars were damaged by falling trees and tree limbs.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - One bad inning for Crescenta Valley High starting pitcher Elliot Surrey was enough to make Friday night's Pacific League opener against Pasadena a nailbiter. But six other innings of brilliance, capped by a dominant seventh inning in which he struck out the side looking, were enough to garner the desired end result, as the senior left-hander twirled a complete game to lead the Falcons to a 3-2 win over the Bulldogs at Stengel Field. "Elliot did great today," said sophomore designated hitter Michael Russo, who singled in the game-winning run in the bottom of the fifth and finished with a pair of singles.
