Alecia Foster LA CRESCENTA -- Areg Hayrapetian's eyes lit up as he explained his science project: "The Effect of the Number of Divisions on the Accuracy of the Area." It's a mouthful to say and a bit complicated to explain but Hayrapetian did so with ease. "I like mathematics," he said with a smile. The seventh-grader was one of four students at Chamlian Armenian School who won in the 51st annual Los Angeles County Science Fair. Hayrapetian took third place in mathematics, while Maral Der Sarkissian took first in chemistry, Shant Krikorian took first in physics and astronomy, and Lara Injeyan captured first in engineering research.

Americana developer Caruso Affiliated recently announced that prices for the 100 condo units in the retail, residential and entertainment megaplex will start in the “low $700,000s” and cap at more than $2 million. “That’s a bit out of my range,” Walsh said.

LA CRESCENTA — More than a half-dozen people in the Crescenta Valley were arrested last week in connection with drug-related offenses, Glendale police said. While the cluster of drug-related arrests was uncommon, drug issues, particularly among teens, have been a problem in the area, said North Command Lt. Ian Grimes. “It’s definitely something we are asking the officers to focus on,” Grimes said. In the latest arrest, police got a tip Saturday from a citizen who noticed two teens acting suspiciously at the restrooms in Glorietta Park on Verdugo Road, Grimes said.
