Duke was a family friend, a gentle, average-sized guy with a large family. He and his wife had just purchased a new refrigerator and stocked it with groceries. Then their house caught fire. After all the kids got out safely, Duke ran back inside and, with his senses heightened, he picked up the new, fully-stocked refrigerator and carried it outside. The fire was put out and their home was salvaged. A day later, when it was time to move the fridge back inside it took three strong men to move it back in. Stay with me, this is more than a story about a man who really, truly hates to waste food.

I am always intrigued by new catch phrases that get everyone?s attention. Right now the flavor of the month is ?anti-aging.? You?ve got to love that one; everyone wants to be forever youthful so we?ll try anything touted as anti-aging. But when it comes to slowing down the aging process, we have just two things to work with ? our DNA and our perspective. DNA works as a pre-determined span of years we are likely to live. It decides the general composition of our bodies and where our wrinkles will go, courtesy of Mom and Pop. We won?

Rev. Kimberlie Zakarian I sat with a patient this past month who is dealing with extreme stress and loss. In our processing, she realized that she had not taken a decent break from work in 25 years — absolutely no extended time off. Currently, life circumstances have led to loss and a high level of anxiety for her. Our bodies cannot sustain extended periods of stress without damage occurring — either of a physical or mental level....

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN As Christmas carols ring over loud speakers in stores everywhere, "It's the most wonderful time of the year," sadly for many, this time of year can bring sorrow. A majority of people love the holiday season. There is something truly miraculous about it. The greatest miracle of all time is remembered as we celebrate the virgin birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. Beyond this, there are other marvelous elements to Christmas -- the decorations, the fellowship, the traditions, music and food.

Glendale Healthy Kids Executive Director Camille Levee informs us that Saturday is ?National Relaxation Day.? You don?t have to tell me twice to take it easy, but here is some interesting information about the effects of adult stress on our children. A study by the Society for Research in Child Development Inc. has shown that students who are anxious, depressed or stressed when entering first and second grade are more likely to be at risk of being victimized by third grade. Levee said research shows that kids take their cues from their parents.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN It seems that stress has increased for many people these days. Our world has become fast-paced and aggressive. While I myself love hard work and being busy, my husband and I also long to one day slow down a bit, having more time to take pleasure in life and people. Perhaps the days of our ancestors sitting on the front porch sipping lemonade in the company of a neighbor are forever lost, at least in Southern California. Our family used to go back to Boise City, Okla.

Ease up on the homework and let them be kids We couldn't wait for the bell to ring and the school day to end. After school, all the kids in the neighborhood put on roller skates or played with balls and assorted toys. It was time for recreation. That's why we all waited for the bell to ring and school to end our long day. So homeward bound it was to do a little homework and then play. You have to work, play and rest; it's something I learned a long time ago. In the years my sons, one 12 and the other 16, have attended Glendale public schools, they have been given way too much homework.

Most of us have been around a married couple or siblings who are bickering. Many of us have probably been that bickering person at one time or ano- ther. Some- times I find my attention drawn to the dynamics of another couple's fighting or a parent who is very upset with a child. I try not to judge these individuals because I never know what they are going through. Perhaps they just lost their job, or a family member died. We never know what is going on inside the heart and life of a stranger.

As Robert Castro prepares to start Monday as Glendale's new police chief , he has set some goals for his first 90 days - the first will be meeting with department staff, community leaders and local residents to discuss their needs and concerns. Castro doesn't have any immediate plans to make sweeping changes in the department. Instead, he said he wants talk to community groups and his sworn and professional staff about what they like about the agency as well as seek suggestions for improvements.

Educators are caught in a circular conundrum. Students are stressed, and their parents, grandparents, mental health professionals and educators themselves all worry about the effects of that stress on student health, well-being, and, yes, on academic and career achievement. It seems we're all realizing what perhaps we've always known, but haven't put into practice: health and well-being affect learning, and attitudes toward learning affect health. When I told a friend I was working on a column about child and adolescent stress, she replied, "That's a huge topic.

By Andrew Shortall WESTWOOD - After cruising to a 25-goal win when it first faced Milken Community, there wasn't much doubt the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team would enjoy another win when it met the Wildcats again Monday. Instead of seeing how high they could run up the score, the Rebels focused instead on defense and the execution of set plays. It led to a 17-3 Prep League victory at UCLA. “Our goal was to not allow them to score any goals,” said Prep's Ethan Vandeventer, who finished with a game-high six goals, three steals and one assist.

GLENDALE - Perhaps the most noticeable thing about the Glendale High football team will be what it's missing as it makes preparations for the 2013 season. For the first time in three years, the Nitros will take the field without their playmaker Michael Davis, who's headed to Brigham Young University in the fall. The standout wide receiver/defensive back was one of 20 seniors that graduated from the team, meaning there's been lots of new faces at spring practices. With so much of Glendale's offense leaning on Davis the past three years, second-year Nitros Coach John Tuttle is using the spring as a chance to evaluate what options he has in the newcomers.

The bomb threat at R.D. White Elementary School on Monday set thousands of sets of teeth on edge, including mine. News it was a hoax brought relief, and anger at the knucklehead who would do such a thing. But it quickly evolved into something else: a cloying fear and feeling of helplessness. Potential tragedies of the level seen in Newtown seem like an earthquake: a force matched in destructive force only by its ability to elude prediction and prevention. All we can do is keep a bottle of Sparkletts in the garage.

As a Glendale Community College student, I can not be quiet anymore, and I feel this is my responsibility to write about the importance of the police department on campus in GCC. We can ask ourselves, “Why do the large buildings in Glendale have their own security?” This is because people need to feel safe having their own security on scene to take quick action when problems come up. I always take classes at night, and I really feel safe when I am walking on the dark bridge on north Verdugo Road and Cañada Boulevard or even in the parking lots because I know there is a large presence of police on campus.

The challenges facing the youth of La Crescenta fueled prayers by local leaders and clergy who spoke on their behalf at the first ever Crescenta Valley Town Council Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday. More than 250 people gathered at Holy Redeemer's Healy Hall, where Chap Clark - a professor of youth, family and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary - addressed the stress and loneliness felt by so many of today's teens. In 2001 and 2002, Clark worked as a daily substitute teacher at Crescenta Valley High School where his three children attended and he observed how teens felt about their lives.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - When it was needed most, the Glendale Community College softball team played at its best Tuesday in a doubleheader with L.A. Mission College. "This was a day where if we lost one we probably wouldn't have made it [into the California College Athletic Assn. regional playoffs], we had to win them both," Glendale Coach Dave "Hawk" Wilder said. Not only did the Vaqueros do that, they did so convincingly, winning both games at the Glendale Sports Complex by a score of 8-0 to, according to Wilder, cement their spot in the regional tournament and as the second-place team in the Western State Conference's Blue Division with a 12-6 conference, 27-13 overall record.

So you're going to the Rose Parade. Many choices lie ahead. Buy a seat near the heart of the television spectacle at Orange Grove and Colorado boulevards, or rough it on free sidewalk space further down the parade route? Take a chance with street parking, or reserve a spot in advance? Brave the freeways? Better know which ramps are closed. The Rose Parade is expected to draw approximately 800,000 people to the streets of Pasadena on Jan. 2, some camping overnight to reserve a sidewalk spot.
