A black Lincoln Navigator hurtled into a flower shop in the 200 block of North Verdugo Road early Wednesday evening. The owner of the shop was toward the back of the store when the sport-utility vehicle crashed diagonally into GG Flowers. The male driver of the SUV was not injured, said Sgt. Rodney Brooks of the Glendale Police Department. Whether he would be arrested or cited is pending the traffic bureau's investigation, he said. A photography shop and hair salon adjoining the flower shop also suffered structural damage.

The lush landscape and vivid colors found at Descanso Gardens are an inspiration for actress Angela Cartwright. A photographer since her parents gave her a Nikon camera on her 16th birthday, she now creates hand-painted photographs, enhancing black-and-white images by applying transparent oil paint.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- One has to feel a sense of remorse for the Monterey Tow Little League District 16 Major Softball team. The 10- through-12-year-olds had absolutely no solutions for Photography as an Art, the top team in the Tri-Cities Tournament. Led by Ariella Guerra, who hit for the cycle, drove in seven runs and scored three times, Photography romped Monterey Tow, 22-2, Monday night at Scholl Canyon Park in a winner's-bracket final game.

They had set up a full studio with a chair for posing the subject and all of the equipment necessary to produce the image.

Disappointing Melissa Brown of Montrose is an artist. In some ways it seems unfair to be unduly hard on an accomplished actor/director such as Robert Redford. I think his average film is more watchable than most. But quite frankly, I was bored with this movie, its story and its local golf hero.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan SCHOLL CANYON FIELD -- Some people say a rivalry brings out the best in opponents.

Alecia Foster HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL -- Jordan Watrous was disappointed after being passed over for a photography position on his school's newspaper. "I've been interested in photography for a long time," the Hoover High School 11th-grader said. He was given a writing position instead. His luck changed halfway through the school year, when the entire photo staff of the Tornado Times quit, giving the Hoover journalism student his big break. That chance earned him an award.
