It’s 7 a.m. as I write this, so maybe it’s just the tequila talking. But this was a lousy June. A never ending series of Portland mornings; dreary days that drive men to bars for breakfast and cause teenagers to pierce cartilage. On a lifelessly gray morning last week I was driving north on the 101 Freeway, and the radio was airing endless reports on Michael Jackson’s sudden death the day before. The clouds outside mirrored the shrouds of sounds and sadness, white noise and unknowing on the airwaves.

Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- Some local residents at the 111th annual Tournament of Roses parade weren't sure if Glendale's basset hound was having fun yet when it passed by. Some folks thought the giant artificial pooch perched on Glendale's float looked like he stayed up late to welcome Y2K and wasn't too happy about the early start Saturday. "I thought it looked a little perplexed," said 12-year-old Bethany Layport of Glendale. Lilliana Rubi, 27, of Burbank said, "I didn't like that one much.

The students behind Glendale High School’s newspaper have a sure thing for the next front page. Jason Castro, a 2008 “American Idol” finalist and Atlantic Records singer-songwriter, gave an interview to the journalism class, an opening act for a lunchtime concert in the school quad Thursday. The performance was the only show in Los Angeles County and one of 25 gigs in 25 cities to promote Castro’s first album out this spring. “We’re pretty lucky to have him,” senior class President Shant Alvandyan said.

Erin Park TOLUCA LAKE -- Golfers on the practice green set the backdrop as the star of the Chairman's Cup celebrity golf tournament sat in the shade of a tree and dangled her legs from her chair, her sneakers barely skimming the manicured grass. Nine-year-old Amy Drummond fielded questions from reporters and smiled shyly for the cameras at the daylong event Monday at Lakeside Country Club. Organized by Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, the second annual event raised more than $100,000 for pediatric eye cancer research, hospital officials said.

Paul Andersen, Enjoy! LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Thrash around in your garage and jam, letting the music come together, checking the chemistry to see if the band will work. Work up some songs while lining up some gigs, and then hit the clubs or go on the road, playing live as much as you can. Get a buzz going, build a following, and with some luck and breaks, the record labels will come calling. Then the real fun starts. This is the standard operating procedure most rock bands follow when trying to make it in the business.

Mirjam Swanson Dear Santa: This is what I want for -- and from -- our area girls' and boys' basketball teams this holiday season. First, I really, really, really want a new CV soundtrack. So it's obviously tradition, the Crescenta Valley High girls' and boys' basketball teams charging into the gym with Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" and Van Halen's "Jump" blaring from the loudspeakers. But it's just so 1980s. Here's what I'm thinking: fancy new gym, fancy new tunes.

“Your neighborhood music boutique since 1946,” reads the business card for Pedrini Music, which moved to its present location on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta in 1997. Founded by Bruno Pedrini in Glendale in 1946, the original store was located on Brand Boulevard. At a time when local, family-owned retailers are threatened to the point of extinction by the Internet and national chains, Pedrini Music's ability to survive is a not-so-mute testimony to the power of hard work, loving care and a little bit of luck.
