The girl's locker room behind the amphitheater of Clark Magnet High School seemed ready to burst like a cork from a champagne bottle Wednesday from the cumulative nerves of 239 anxious graduating seniors. Of all the graduating classes in Glendale Unified School District this year, most students, parents and school staff agreed that this class had the least to fear from an uncertain future. "We're smart," senior Anita Haftavani said as she waited to walk out in the open-air theater.

Director Peter Ramsey is sitting in his office on the DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale and recalling a vivid childhood memory. “I remember being in my pajamas in the back of my parents' car at an Inglewood drive-in watching Disney's “Snow White” and being mesmerized,” he says. “We didn't get to go to movies a lot when I was a kid, so when we did, it was such an emotional overwhelming experience. That's where I really got that reverence for movies.” For an African American inner-city kid from Crenshaw, the dream of making it big in Hollywood seemed almost as fantastical as the movies he watched.

An effort to designate the Verdugo Hills Golf Course as historically significant - a move that could have blocked a planned residential development on the site - is moving forward with a compromise that will see only a small portion of the property preserved. More than 50 red-shirted advocates for approving the site's historic status came to the Los Angeles City Council meeting on Friday. Some of them were Sunland-Tujunga locals who live near the golf course, while others were descendants of Japanese Americans who had been interned at the Tuna Canyon Detention Station, which was located on the site during World War II. Councilmembers said they plan to vote on Tuesday to grant historic designation to a grove of oak trees that has stood on the property since the detention center was there.

After 14 seasons as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, which included a trip to the Super Bowl, Andy Reid's tenure ended Monday when he was fired. Reid, a former Glendale Community College football player from 1976-77, was let go by Philadelphia owner Jeffrey Lurie after Philadelphia's season came to a close Sunday with a 42-7 road loss against the rival New York Giants. The Eagles finished a disappointing 4-12 after going 8-8 in 2011, when they were picked as a prohibitive favorite to win the franchise's first Super Bowl trophy after acquiring several high-priced players.

Dozens of expectant mothers and families gathered Wednesday at the Americana at Brand to celebrate the opening of the first-ever Disney Baby store. A cast of popular characters from the famed Burbank studio joined actress and television host Alison Sweeney and Disney Consumer Products President Bob Chapek to unveil the new store. “Disney is all about life's magical moments,” Chapek said, “and maybe there's no more greater magical moment than the birth of a child.” The company teamed up with Operation Shower, a nonprofit organization that supports military families with members who are deployed, to throw a baby shower for military moms-to-be, complete with games, prizes and live music.

Local Democratic incumbents for state offices and the U.S. House easily cleared challenges from their Republican opponents Tuesday. Even in the hotly contested race for the 43rd Assembly District, incumbent Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) never lost a comfortable lead over Republican challenger Greg Krikorian, a Glendale school board member, as the election returns -- hampered by fog and air transit delays -- trickled in well past midnight. With all precincts reporting, Gatto won the district with 60.5% of the electorate, or 72,797 votes to Kirkorian's 47,615, according to the California Secretary of State.

By Bill Kisliuk When Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) runs, it normally takes months of hand-shaking and many hundreds of thousands of dollars before he crosses the finish line. On June 20, the congressman representing Glendale and most of Burbank completed a race in Washington, D.C., that merely required some jogging, bicycling and swimming. Schiff completed his first triathlon in one hour and 46 minutes. "It was very hot," Schiff said. "It started out in the mid-80s and got into the 90s. I was done before it hit the 90s."

In politics, the trajectory of an elected official can depend on not only how they interact with their constituents, but how they get along with their peers. And perhaps nowhere is that more apparent than the paths taken by two local assemblymen - Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) and outgoing Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge), who will be termed out of office at year's end. In just two years, Gatto has risen through the ranks to assume the powerful chairmanship of the Assembly Appropriations Committee largely by sticking with the party agenda on high-profile issues - despite what his constituents back home lobbied for, particularly in terms of redevelopment revenues.

I almost got into a car accident this weekend. It was one of those moments where the world moved forward in slow motion and the time between my realization of what was happening and it actually happening was so minuscule, that reacting didn't seem like it would pay off. But it did. I ended up honking with such force that I was sure I had awakened the neighbors from their Sunday slumber on the quiet residential street I hoped would not become the...

ANI AMIRKHANIAN It always amazes me how Armenian stereotypes are more prevalent within the Armenian culture than they are within the general populace. As with any culture, people feel offended and insulted if someone uses stereotypes to label the actions, lifestyles, traditions or customs of their culture. The Armenian subcultures or subgroups are quite different from each other, so naturally they are conflicted with varying stereotypes.
