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.

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...

Glendale-based International House of Pancakes has dropped its trademark infringement lawsuit against a church with a Pasadena ministry, agreeing to resolve its dispute with the International House of Prayer out of court. On Dec. 21, the restaurant chain dismissed its case against the church, with its lawyers citing "ongoing mediation with the defendants," according to documents filed in federal court in Los Angeles. The restaurant chain sued the church in September, alleging it misappropriated IHOP trademarks with its website, ihop.

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.

The candy and tobacco store that opened in the city's main post office in the late 1940s was part of a nationwide movement to provide work for persons living with a disability. In 1947, Postmaster Max L. Green, with assistance from the state and federal governments and the Lions clubs of the area, installed and outfitted a candy and tobacco stand in the post office's lobby. It was operated by Eldon Littell. Green turned the keys of the fully-stocked stand over to Littell, a member of the Foothill Service Club for the Blind, in an informal ceremony that included Mayor Albert C. Lane and Ray Barker, chair of the Foothill Council for the Blind.

It was a week Zareh Sinanyan will never forget. The man who left the Soviet Republic of Armenia as a 14-year-old a quarter century ago took his seat as a Glendale City Councilman on Monday, faced harsh criticism from residents during public comment on Tuesday over hateful comments he posted on the Internet several years ago, attended several community events in his official capacity and then sat down to clear the air. "I engaged people in conversation...

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.

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.

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."

Normally, as the wife of an elected official, I would not take the extraordinary step of writing a letter to the editor to respond to a news story. And normally, my family would not take the extraordinary step of bringing action against a blogger for libel ("Website removes claims about Gatto," Oct. 28). However, the tactics of my husband's opponents during this campaign have been so over-the-top that I believe we must take the steps that are necessary to protect our family and its integrity.

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.
