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!

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.

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.

“All happy families resemble one another,” Count Leo Tolstoy famously wrote, “each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” It's a memorable line. It has the cadence of a profound insight made catchy. It makes sense on the face of it, it's brief, and it's complete...fodder for Bartlett's, for sure. It's only when you really think about it in terms of personal experience that you realize that it's not literally true and, on further reflection, that it's probably not even metaphorically true.

PASADENA - For seven innings, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby was strong on the mound and his defense was flawless behind him. The Falcons' bats were chiming, as well, but runs were hard to come by in a first-place showdown with host Pasadena. That changed from the fifth inning on, as the Falcons put together six runs over the final three innings to hand the Bulldogs their first league loss and force a three-way tie atop the league standings.

GLENDALE - Cartier Juan believes the Flintridge Prep boys' tennis team is heading in the right direction. The Flintridge Prep singles player thinks it's just a matter of fine tuning a few things that might result in the Rebels qualifying for the playoffs in May. “We just need to improve on our overall consistency and learning how to close out sets,” Juan said after host Flintridge Prep suffered a 12-6 defeat against rival Pasadena Poly...

"The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time," Abraham Lincoln once said. Hundreds of Catholic high school students interpreted Lincoln's words through essays entered into the Cabrini Literary Guild's Creative Writing competition. Last Thursday, the Oakmont Country Club was the setting for a luncheon at which four young ladies were honored for their award-winning essays. Winning first place was Immaculate Heart High School student Krista Gelev . She went home with $1,000 for her efforts.

GLENDALE - Just before the season began, Crescenta Valley High baseball Coach Phil Torres proclaimed Pasadena as the favorite to win the Pacific League championship this season, even though his Falcons had won the previous two league titles. Torres made the claim in due to the Bulldogs' plethora of returners who he thought were primed to break out. The Bulldogs took a big first step Tuesday night in staking their league claim. Pasadena's Niko Lopez tossed six strong innings and the Bulldogs took advantage of an uncharacteristically sloppy Falcons defense in a 3-0 victory at Stengel Field in the league opener for both teams.

Noël Coward is comfortably at home at the Pasadena Playhouse, thanks to an ongoing partnership with award-winning director Art Manke, who helmed Coward's seldom-done "Fallen Angels" at the Playhouse last year. Manke, a notable Coward specialist, is acutely sensitive to the emotional depths beneath the playwright's signature sophistication and frothy wit. In "A Song at Twilight," one of Coward's last works, running at the Playhouse through April 13, the emotional resonances are closer to the surface - and Manke and a dream cast realize them to the fullest.

How many times has it been said that books are doorways? Open them and you can take little journeys through the minds of authors or the subject's landscapes. Artist Susan Sironi has taken that metaphor and manipulated it in a very personal way. In what amounts to an act of reductive sculpture, she literally takes a scalpel to the concept and reshapes it. Sironi alters the terrain of books and renders new sets of coordinates within each. In so doing, she invests objects with new experiential material.

Known for its flickering neon sign that animates a hammer striking a shoe heel, Zinke's Shoe Repair will soon be leaving Glendale for Pasadena after more than 65 years in business. The name Zinke's has been in use since 1919, but the store's location at 119 W. California Ave. was built in 1941. The distinctive sign went up in the 1950s, said Mike Ramirez, who started working at Zinke's 42 years ago and eventually took over ownership. He said April 26 would likely be the last day the business would be open.

Pasadena and its environs have had a jazz presence since at least the 1950s, when artist Jirayr Zorthian hosted a clothing-optional party for Charlie Parker in 1952. A few years later, youngbloods like vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, bassists Albert Stinson and Herbie Lewis, drummers Mike Romero and Jim Keltner, and saxophonists Richard and Pete Aplanalp were developing their own jazz profiles. Through his decades of rock-steady playing and teaching, 71-year-old Altadena bassist Putter Smith is one of the Pasadena jazz patriarchs.
