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.

Happy New Year. Or, as some say, happy New Year's, or even happy new year. Which one is correct? They all are. New Year's is one holiday that's hard to get wrong. But as the months go by, other holidays roll around that aren't so easy to write - holidays that follow rules contradictory to each other and perhaps even to logic itself. So here, to start your New Year right, is the lowdown on how to write a whole year's worth of holidays. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day always start with capital letters and always take an apostrophe.

It's officially Christmas time at the Americana at Brand, where on Sunday night the switch was flipped on thousands of lights covering the giant white fir towering over the outdoor shopping mall. The spectacle -- accompanied by dancing snowmen, fireworks, “flying” reindeer -- wowed a crowd that at one point apparently reached capacity, with some people reporting on Twitter that they had been turned away after the fire marshal cut the inflow of people. The more than 100-foot-tall white fir Christmas tree, which rolled into the Americana prior to Halloween, was covered with thousands of lights and ornaments for the “Cirque du Santa” lighting ceremony, with acrobatics provided by  Zen Arts.

A 21-year-old Elk Grove woman was arrested this week on suspicion of soliciting sex in exchange for cash to an undercover Glendale detective during a sting at a local hotel, police said. Glendale detectives were investigating possible prostitution advertisements on Backpage.com Monday night when they contacted Mallory Osta, who had listed her phone number in an ad, according to police. Osta, who police said went by the name Giana, allegedly told detectives she had just got off work and was available to hang out. After an undercover detective indicated he would only be available to hang out for 30 minutes, she told him it would cost $140, police said.

Two Florida men were arrested this week on suspicion of possessing a half-kilogram of cocaine after they were stopped for talking on a handheld cellphone while driving, officials said. The men - Herwood Barrington Walters, 25, and Courtney Lalor, 28 - were taken into custody about 9:18 p.m. Tuesday on North Central Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard on suspicion of possessing cocaine for sale, according to Glendale police reports. The pair provided officers with few clues about why they were in Glendale, but police believe “they were probably trying to sell the cocaine,” Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

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.

Walgreens is looking to come to Glendale, part of a plan that would include the opening of the city's third Trader Joe's market. The two companies have both applied for off-site liquor sales licenses with the city. Representatives from Walgreens and Trader Joe's presented plans for putting both stores in a currently unoccupied property at 101 E. Glenoaks Ave. at a city hearing last week. The 25,560 square-foot building, located at the intersection of Glenoaks and Brand Boulevard, would be split in two to accommodate the two businesses, according to city documents.

Since its publication in 1965, Truman Capote's “In Cold Blood” has been widely recognized as a seminal work in American literature, frequently appearing on high school and college reading lists. But the contents of the nonfiction novel, which detail the brutal murder of a prosperous Kansas farmer and his family, are apparently too macabre for some Glendale Unified officials and parents who are seeking to block a request by a high school English teacher to add the text to the district's English curriculum.

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.

Poking out from a mountain of clutter on the dining room table in Austeene Cooper's living room is a pair of pink candelabras accented with ornate piping. There are other similar items - framed photographs, mirrors, furniture - that whisper of a bygone era of luxury and privilege. They once decorated the Beverly Hills home of her father, Harry Brand Cooper, the great-nephew of Leslie C. Brand, who was one of the founders of the city of Glendale. Sitting now amid dust and cat-scratched boxes, they tell a different story: that of a woman who, four generations removed from the peak of her family's wealth, is struggling to adapt to a new reality in which she is struggling to even keep a roof over her head.
