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.

A former Glendale councilman who was sentenced last week to one year in jail after pleading guilty to embezzlement, perjury and filing false tax returns will instead serve the remainder of this time under home confinement. After being sentenced, John Drayman was assigned to the Twin Towers jail facility in downtown Los Angeles. But L.A. County Sheriff's officials almost immediately cut his term by more than half, noting  nonviolent and nonsexual criminals are eligible for the reduction under state prison realignment guidelines meant to reduce inmate overcrowding.

Circus on Sunday thanks to a former NBA player who decided to pay for the event “instead of buying a car.” Brad Wright - a UCLA alum who played for the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets - and his wife paid for the 11 a.m. performance, which was added to the circus' regular schedule for a packed crowd.

And just to make you extra excited,  NASA  recently declared the Perseids the  fireball champion  of the meteor showers -- meaning it has the brightest meteors of all the annual showers.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Virgil’s Hardware Home Center, long known as the quirky source of everything from eggs to 50-year-old door knobs, has been purchased by the owner of Do-It Center hardware stores after 100 years of family ownership, company representatives confirmed Wednesday.

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.

"It's like feeding them to the wolves. " Antonio Harrison Flintridge Prep coach on what it would have been like if he would have elected to play his team against Campbell Hall.

As the graduating class of Glendale High School walked off Moyse Field, a group of about 10 students spontaneously ran a lap around the track. It was a reminder of the school's spirit that graduation speakers said will lead them to success in life. "We have a free spirit, rebelliousness," said 18-year-old Ani Antanesyan, who was panting from her short run. "We just did it. It's over. Yeah!" A crowd of adoring parents and friends packed the bleachers looking over about 650 students garbed in their school colors — the boys in black gowns and the girls in red gowns.
