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.

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.

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.

Glendale Unified students and teachers will have next April 24 off in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, following an agreement signed by school officials and the teachers union this week. Thousands of students of Armenian descent typically skip class on April 24 to participate in commemoration events, but the high truancy rates can decrease the school district's funding, which is tied to attendance. For years, parents, teachers and school officials have been discussing making April 24 a non-work day, and finally next school year the day off will be official.

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.

Brand Blvd. The 90-minute event will feature several traditional Armenian dance and musical performances by local students.

The parents of a 15-year-old Crescenta Valley High School student who jumped to his death on campus last year have filed a lawsuit alleging district officials turned a “blind eye” to the bullying that they allege prompted their son to take his own life. On Feb. 10, Drew Ferraro jumped to his death from a third-story building at the school in front of other students. Not long into the ensuing investigation, a Los Angeles County coroner's official said Drew did not reference bullying in any of the “very telling” four suicide notes found on his body.

For the first time in several years, the Glendale emergency winter shelter may not be located at the National Guard Armory, a downtown site that has sparked controversy in the past, in large part because of its proximity to the Central Library and shopping centers. Instead, the 80-bed shelter program is slated to be split into two sites near the city's southern border with Los Angeles. Both locations will be operated by Ascencia, Glendale's largest homeless services provider.  “The armory is really not a good location for us,” said Natalie Profant Komuro, executive director of Ascencia, during a Homeless Coalition meeting at City Hall Thursday.  In addition to community issues, the armory often has black-out dates when it's being used for training purposes, requiring shelter operators to find temporary housing for the homeless - often in local churches.

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.

Two Newport Beach residents hope to stop the arrival of two large yachts -- including one owned by Americana on Brand developer Rick Caruso -- slated to moor temporarily in the open harbor area in front of their homes next month. When the boat owners independently asked to anchor in the newly dredged waterfront, Newport Beach Harbor Commission members approved their requests as a welcome opportunity to try out a different use for the area on the west end of Lido Island. But residents fear this may be a first step toward the harbor changing for the worse, according to the Daily Pilot . "This is just a trial, they keep assuring us of that," said Pamela Whitesides, who has lived in a waterfront building for about 20 years.
