Gary Moskowitz SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- You could hear the smooch echo inside Edmonds Chapel at Glendale Presbyterian Church when Philip Mansfield, 90, kissed his new bride, 85-year-old Ruth Sargent. The couple, after meeting last year through a mutual friend -- Glendale resident Edwin Filek -- fell in love and were married Saturday in front of a small group of friends and family. The couple, seated throughout most of the ceremony, gazed into each other's eyes as interim Pastor Brad Calhoun asked them to say their vows and place rings on each other's hands.

My 2-year-old son is obsessed with trains. The living room feels like a constant construction site with a mix of Lego parts, Thomas the Train pieces and all sorts of materials used to build the ever-expanding railway system in our house. He has also learned an Armenian nursery rhyme about trains that he's always murmuring. As real trains go through Glendale blowing their horns, the topic in the house inevitably turns to trains. So in November when I attended a special event at the Glendale train station, the meaning wasn't lost on me. With his recent passing, officials decided to dedicate the train station to former Glendale Mayor Larry Zarian to honor his contributions to the community.

Amber Willard SOUTHWEST GLENDALE -- Santa Claus will be substituting his reindeer for a 450-ton Metrolink train, at least for next week. The jolly fellow will be one of an entourage of characters arriving Friday night at the city's Metrolink station to collect toy donations. "We need people to bring gifts to the train station and the fire trucks will take them back to the fire stations," said Glendale Fire Engineer Bob Launius, who oversees the department's partnership with Metrolink for the Spark of Love program.

Snippets of interesting conversation are the special dividends of travel. They result from the surprising openness, almost intimacy, of sojourners confined to the metal bubble of a plane, boat, cab or train. A flight to Miami, stops in Florida to see friends and a train ride up the East Coast to New York, last November, refreshed my sense of the human diversity that so enriches our great country. The focus of the trip was a reunion of the Navy junior officers I served with during the Vietnam War. The following are brief “outtakes” from conversations with those I met along the way. My seatmate on the plane was coincidentally a Vietnam War Army vet headed to a reunion of his old helicopter crew.

Louise Baffa Peebles grew up in Atwater, but she and her sister, Linda, were in and out of Glendale constantly since their father, Harry, operated a series of movie theaters here. In the late 1950s, they ran Temple Theatre in the Masonic Temple on Brand Boulevard. The box office was located in what is now the entry to A Noise Within. Tickets were 50 cents for three movies, with two changes of movies per week. "George Crittenden, who runs the films for the Alex Film Society, was a projectionist trainee under my father," said Peebles.
