Councilman Rafi Manoukian.
Bremberg stood up for him and the city's action and challenged anyone
to do battle with her.
"I am 4 feet 9 inches tall, but I pack a wallop," Bremberg said. "And
you'll know where I hit you."
RUNNING FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Congressman James Rogan (R-Glendale) put on shorts and a T-shirt for
Glendale Memorial Hospital's Life Walk held June 11.
Shortly before hitting the streets of Glendale, he joked about why he
turned out for the run.
"In politics, it's harder to hit a moving target," he joked.
TWO'S COMPANY, THREE'S A CROWD
Three reporters from various media outlets cornered two defense
attorneys for questioning after a recent court hearing.
The three women reporters requested copies of a motion filed by one of
the attorney's. The attorney stated he only had two, when the second
attorney jokingly suggested throwing the papers on the floor and letting
a "cat fight" ensue between the three reporters.
Being the professional reporters they were, however, the three opted
to share and had copies made in the District Attorney's office.
NEWS-PRESS EDITOR ROGAN?
U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) is pretty confident he will beat
out state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) for the 27th Congressional
But, if he loses, he may still find a way to keep his name in the
pages of the News-Press.
When asked this week what alternative work he might consider, Rogan
joked: "Buy the News-Press and take over the editorial page."
ALLERGIES BE GONE
Not every loss is a bad one.
A large carob tree, estimated to be at least 80 years old, was cut
down and taken from its Del Valle Avenue home this week because disease
had weakened its limbs.
Mary Lockheart, a 26-year Del Valle resident, is among those Verdugo
Woodlands residents who will miss the tree.
But the loss comes with a perk for Lockheart.
"I loved the tree, but it didn't love me because I have allergies,"
she said. "Every spring, I would cuss out the tree."
The new Nordstrom Rack in Glendale Fashion Center drew a crowd of 500
people ready to satisfy their shopping fix once the store opened its
doors Friday morning.
Within minutes, long lines had formed as customers waited patiently to
try on clothing or pay for merchandise at the cash registers. The
News-Press reporter covering the event roamed through the congested
aisles hoping to get comments from shoppers. Many people were eager to
talk but once they were asked for their names they clammed up.
"Sorry you can't use my name in the paper. I'm supposed to be at work
right now," several shoppers said.
