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.

After 70 years in business, Ernie Jr.'s Taco House will close for the last time on Saturday and many lifelong fans are flocking to the eatery this week for their last chance to munch on its Mexican fare. The restaurant has been a family business since opening in Lincoln Heights in 1944, during World War II, a period when tacos, burritos and enchiladas weren't sold on as many street corners as today, said owner Ernie Cruz, whose mother started the business. “We have an old menu that's posted on the walls,” he said.

Jurors have started deliberating in the case of a Glendale man accused of bank fraud and stealing the identities of hundreds of 99 Cents Only store customers. Glendale resident Rafael Parsadanyan is one of three men, including Mher Darbinyan and Arman Sharopetrosian, on trial for their roles in the fraud schemes, which were reportedly tied to an organized crime ring called Armenian Power. But Parsadanyan's attorney Andrew Flier argued that his client, who owned a cellphone store and reportedly has no gang ties, is innocent and lumped in with the other defendants.

INGLEWOOD - In the end, the beginning of Marina Shafir's professional mixed martial arts career proved most difficult in the weeks leading up to her debut trying to find an opponent. Once Shafir set foot inside the ring at Lights Out Promotions' “Chaos at the Casino 4” event Saturday night at Hollywood Park Casino, it took her 117 seconds and two armbar attempts to introduce herself victoriously to the professional mixed martial arts world. Making her professional debut, Shafir, the "Supernova from Moldova," coaxed a tap from Chandra Engel in 1:57 of the first round via armbar in the featheweight (145 pounds)

A Los Angeles law firm has agreed to represent the city of Glendale for free in its defense of a statue honoring women taken as sex slaves for the Japanese Army during World War II , the installation of which has been called into question by a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court last month. This is the first time in at least three years that a law firm has represented the city on a pro-bono basis, said City Atty. Mike Garcia. "Obviously, there are folks who think the lawsuit doesn't have merit," Garcia said.

Lolita Gonzalves used to think of Councilman Dave Weaver as a father figure, but that was before she filed a complaint with Glendale's city attorney alleging that he groped her at a Mexican restaurant last year. Gonzalves has spoken to Los Angeles County District Attorney officials about the incident and attorneys for Gonzalves and Weaver have been negotiating a settlement to prevent a civil lawsuit. Weaver, who ended his one-year term as mayor last week, had last offered $2,000. For Gonzalves, who has known Weaver since 2007, that wasn't enough; she wants a written admission and apology for the April 9, 2013 incident.

On most Saturday afternoons in a small garage in Atwater Village, you can stop in for a cup of hand-roasted coffee, lounge on the couch and meet the other customers and friends of the owner who come by - or you can buy a bag to take home. It's not your typical coffee shop, which seems fitting for what customers describe as not your typical coffee. Greg Thomas, owner of Trystero Coffee, has been hand-roasting coffee and serving cups to customers and passersby alike for about three years.

Drivers in Glendale are roughly 76% more likely to be involved in a collision than the national average, making them some of the worst motorists nationwide, according to a new insurance report. For the ninth year in row, Glendale ranked near the bottom of the Allstate Insurance Co.'s “America's Best Drivers” report, which includes 194 of the country's largest cities. And Glendale ranked last among cities in California for having the worst drivers. “Individually, any driver can make a difference in their risk of having a collision,” said Jim Klapthor, an Allstate spokesman based in California.

Reaction from Glendale school board members on transferring the Sagebrush territory to La Cañada Unified was mixed Tuesday night during the board's first public discussion of the issue since 350 people attended a town-hall meeting last month and most of the speakers supported the move. “At the end of the day, I think it's the best move for all of us,” said school board member Greg Krikorian. “Far too many times, elected bodies bump heads.” Board member Christine Walters lauded La Cañada city officials as well as school officials in both districts for creating a “democratic process” that has involved hearing input from residents at public meetings and entering into monthslong negotiations that has resulted, in part, in a six-year phase-in plan.
