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 Glendale man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that he attempted to defraud Medicare by submitting more than $11 million in bogus claims for unnecessary medical services. Karen Sarkissian, 43, and L' Tanya Smith, 57, of Ladera Park, were arrested Wednesday in connection with the scheme, which authorities said is also tied to money-laundering and tax-fraud operations, according to the U.S. Attorney's office. Sarkissian reportedly operated Sunset Clinic in Echo Park and was working with Smith, who also pleaded not guilty.

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.

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.

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.

Sometimes I get tickets to sitcom tapings and game shows. Most recently I got tickets to "Let's Make A Deal" at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. I invited my wonderful dog-walker Julie Cummins and her 18-year old daughter, Nicole, an adorable actress trying to make it big in Hollywood. Julie and I are both struggling financially, and while waiting in the long line of other costumed hopefuls, we fantasized about what we would do if we got the unlikely chance to make a deal.

The gazelle-like legs of Forrest Beaty never failed him when he burned up local tracks. Beaty rarely lost a sprint event while starring for the Hoover High boys' track and field squad from 1959-62. The attention Beaty received at Hoover was second to none. As a junior, he clocked 20.2 seconds in the 220-yard dash. That mark was 0.2 seconds off the then world record. The marks continued to improve for Beaty, who was No. 17 on the list of top 50 local sports figures of the 20th century by the News-Press in 1999.

The story behind Kenneth Village, the cluster of shops on Kenneth Road between Sonora and Grandview avenues in northwest Glendale, goes back to a time before those streets even existed. It was a time when it was open country, west of the little village of Casa Verdugo, and totally separate from another settlement to the southeast called Glendale. Vineyards, citrus orchards and commercial gardens covered most of the land. The most dominant man-made feature was a small cemetery, called Grand View, which opened in the mid-1880s, and it was one of the few such places around.

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.
