"When you put a line in the sand, and you make one person's needs more important than another's, that's a bad thing." -- noted comments by Mary Cruz. Well, Ms. Cruz, at times you have to put a line in the sand and make hard decisions. How hard is it for the GUSD to give Jan. 6 (Armenian Christmas) off as a staff day, or whatever you call it, and at the same time save $250,000? This savings helps to educate the children that you are willing to keep out of school for spite.

Police on Tuesday remained uncertain if small knife blades found at a Newport Beach park were placed there deliberately. Crews sifting through the sand Monday found two more blades, bringing the total to 15 blades found at a Bonita Canyon park, where a 5-year-old child stepped on a blade Saturday morning. The blade did not break skin on the child's foot, and he was not injured, said Sgt. Bill Hartford. Police and grounds crews swept the entire playground with a metal detector.

I grew up less than five minutes from the beach. When I was younger, summers were spent building sand castles and swimming in the surf. As I got older, the beach became more of a hang out spot where I would meet up with friends, lie on the sand and spend lazy days reading a good book or just relaxing. Now that I live inland and the beach is more than a half-hour drive from my house I crave the cool ocean breeze and the smell of saltwater in the air. The truth is, I'm rarely ever in the mood to hop in the car and drive through L.A. traffic for a few hours on the sand but I recently discovered a system that would make going to the beach a lot easier.

o7Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it. f7 -- RALPH WALDO EMERSON I didn't realize until the end of summer that I hadn't done something that used to be an essential part of summer when I was younger -- go to the beach. I can't blame it on red tides or jellyfish. It's just that going to the beach wasn't a priority for me this year.

Alex Coolman DOWNTOWN -- It's an unlikely place to find an oasis of spiritual contentment: right in the heart of Glendale Galleria, wedged between Privilege and U-Topia. But it's in a retail space at the mall, between those two stores, that three Tibetan lamas have been slowly, painstakingly constructing a sand mandala every day this week. It's a massive and extremely elaborate design. They're creating it using small metal funnels call zang-bub, which release colored sand a few grains at a time.

A black sand beach. God’s creation. I had read about them in elementary school. Saw pictures of them when I studied the state of Hawaii. But I never saw one in person, touched the onyx sand, and felt that it was much coarser than our tan beaches here in Southern California, until I was an adult. Yet it existed, whether I had seen it firsthand or not. Much like God’s love and power. It is the same with a lot of life — places and realities. We may never have been to India, but it exists.

Scott Bailey and Christina Galloway crafted an ambitious plan for their wedding on May 26 in Fallbrook. They blended old traditions with modern ideas to create a memorable day of ceremony and celebration. "It was our goal to create an occasion that would affect people emotionally. We wanted to engage them, to touch their hearts," Christina explained. Christina, a La Cañada native, met Scott two years ago in Northern California, during her final year of study in a doctoral program in psychology.

L.C. Brand's custom-made Tioga Wolf has always intrigued vintage car buffs and local historians, including Arlene Vidor, president of Associates of Brand Library & Art Center. In preparation for the grand reopening of the library later this month, Vidor set out to learn more about the vehicle. Some sleuthing on the Internet put her together with the car's owner who told her the Wolf is in pristine condition and has completed many Horseless Carriage Club of America tours. She also learned that it was built around 1913 by Moreland Truck Company in Burbank to Brand's specifications and used as transport to his then-remote hideaway, Tioga Lodge, in the Mono Lake area.

My husband and I have been lucky, particularly as parents. As I look toward Thanksgiving, I'm mindful of the good fortune and help we've had along the way, starting with the Realtors who helped us find our house in 1981. It was Mary Ann Plumley - before her service on City Council - who told us about Glendale Community College's parent education program. We weren't parents yet, so I tucked away the information. But when our parenting adventure began, I remembered her advice and signed up for the Parent Ed toddler class.

The Sands Theater, which opened in 1963, was one of a trio of movie houses operated on Brand Boulevard by Harry Baffa during the 1950s, ?60s and ?70s. Baffa also ran the Temple (in the former Masonic Temple near Colorado Street) and, for a short while, the California, which adjoined the old California Hotel at Lexington Drive. Brand had been home to movie theaters since the Palace Grand opened in 1914 at what was then the center of the business district at 319 S. Brand Blvd.

GLENDALE — Aging playgrounds at half a dozen parks throughout Glendale are slated to receive major upgrades by next spring, including modern high-tech play structures and improved access for disabled children, park officials said. The six-park plan will cost the city more than $680,000 to replace older play structures with newer ones that, in a presentation to the Parks, Services & Recreation Commission on Tuesday, looked like they came out of a family entertainment park.

CITY HALL — The Glendale City Council on Tuesday sided with the city of Santa Clarita in its call for support in opposing a proposed massive mining project. The Glendale council approved a resolution against the project 3-0, with Councilman Bob Yousefian against it. Councilman Rafi Manoukian was absent. The multinational CEMEX Corp. has already gained approval from the Federal Bureau of Land Management to begin mining sand and gravel in Soledad Canyon, which sits on the outskirts of Santa Clarita, according to a Glendale staff report.

Just like the rest of California, bits of Newport Beach could be falling into the ocean. Or maybe, as some people believe, the city's beaches are getting wider. To find out which is the case, the city has commissioned a new study, which will chart the movement of sand along the Newport coastline. The City Council on Tuesday agreed to hire Long Beach firm Moffatt & Nichol to conduct the study of West Newport, the Balboa Peninsula and Big Corona for $48,614.
