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.

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.

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.

A bomb squad has rendered a pipe that was found to be "suspicious in nature" safe in North Glendale, officials said. The PVC pipe, which was had a cap on one end and no cap on the other end, was attached with zip ties to a power pole near Bel Aire Drive and Thompson Avenue, which was closed off to passersby as a precaution, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. A supervisor with Glendale Water & Power didn't recognize the device as something the utility uses, so Los Angeles County Sheriff's bomb squad was notified to examine the pipe, he added.

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.

The Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale and Contemporary & Modern Print Exhibitions have curated proof of Matisse’s paternity to modern art with a presentation of 63 illustrations, rendered by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) in response to the works of French poets Pierre Ronsard (1524-1585) and Stephane Mallarme (1842-1898). Matisse’s dream — ”an art of balance, of purity and serenity — becomes manifested in this exhibition of his late work, which was the result of his pioneering in the graphic arts of etching and lithography and a leaning toward “minimalism,” a clean and economical use of line, color and subject matter.

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.

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.

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.

Librarian positions at four Glendale Unified high schools may be eliminated for the 2012-13 school year as the district tries to balance budget and staffing variables, officials said. The four librarians - who are also credentialed teachers - at Glendale, Hoover, Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools have been notified that they could be moved from their current positions back into the classroom as the district works to create breathing room in its ever shrinking budget.
