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.

Cruise Night - the annual event in which hotrods and custom and classic cars take over downtown Glendale - will be scaled back this summer after officials this week decided to more than halve the event's budget. The $103,000 required to stage the massively popular regional event has in past been paid for with redevelopment funds. But with Glendale's redevelopment agency dissolved by a state mandate, the city will now have to dip into its tight General Fund to cover a smaller $42,840 show.

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.

Walgreens is looking to come to Glendale, part of a plan that would include the opening of the city's third Trader Joe's market. The two companies have both applied for off-site liquor sales licenses with the city. Representatives from Walgreens and Trader Joe's presented plans for putting both stores in a currently unoccupied property at 101 E. Glenoaks Ave. at a city hearing last week. The 25,560 square-foot building, located at the intersection of Glenoaks and Brand Boulevard, would be split in two to accommodate the two businesses, according to city documents.

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. Chatsworth-based Neiman Reed Lumber Co., which also owns a Do-It Center in Burbank, informed Virgil’s employees of the buyout during a staff meeting Monday, store clerks said. The change stirred fears among loyal shoppers who often chose the store over other hardware outlets because of its staff expertise, unique selection and sometimes odd offerings.

Two Florida men were arrested this week on suspicion of possessing a half-kilogram of cocaine after they were stopped for talking on a handheld cellphone while driving, officials said. The men - Herwood Barrington Walters, 25, and Courtney Lalor, 28 - were taken into custody about 9:18 p.m. Tuesday on North Central Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard on suspicion of possessing cocaine for sale, according to Glendale police reports. The pair provided officers with few clues about why they were in Glendale, but police believe “they were probably trying to sell the cocaine,” Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

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.

Construction is on track for the Museum of Neon Art, which was topped off with a 19-foot-tall red neon statue of a female diver last week, one of the many elements museum officials hope will help lure visitors to Glendale's first full-fledged art museum. The $5.2-million construction project to revamp the exterior of the 10,000-square-foot building that will house the museum is expected to be complete by the end of April or early May, said Phil Lanzafame, Glendale's economic development director.

When boxer Art “Lionheart” Hovhannisyan walked into the Glendale Fighting Club on Monday morning, his eyes popped wide open, his usual grin widened and he shook his head. The Brand Boulevard corner gym was packed with reporters and cameras clicking and shooting away. They were all there for an open workout and press conference with Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who's fast become a superstar with big-time endorsements, magazine covers, movie roles and a laundry list of busted arms left behind during her championship run. Media attention has grown over the years at the GFC thanks in most part to Rousey.

The annual Cruise Night that will take over a portion of downtown Glendale on Saturday will, for the first time in 20 years, be fully supported by private sponsors and community funds, organizers said. That means the annual event that features hundreds of classic vehicles - and even more oohs and ahhs - has gone from being dependent on tens of thousands of dollars in city assistance to self-sustainable in just a few short years. About $95,000 in Redevelopment Agency funds had been used in years past to pay for the event, which is free to the public.

The  Perseid meteor shower  is one of nature's most spectacular light shows, and it's happening this weekend. The annual meteor shower will peak Sunday night into the dawn of Monday morning, and at the height of the shower, you can expect to see 100 meteors an hour, the Los Angeles Times reported .  This year, the moon is your friend and will appear as a thin crescent that shouldn't spoil your view of the shooting stars. 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.

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.

LOS ANGELES - When “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey began her mixed martial arts career, it came to be in part due to the inspiration of Gina “Conviction” Carano. “Thank God for Gina Carano,” Rousey told the Glendale News-Press in August of 2011. “I have so much respect for her. I'm grateful for what she's done.” Rousey, the current and first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion, has long said that it would be an honor to fight Carano, though the latter has been absent from competition since the summer of 2009.

A parking lot lined with red tassels marks the opening of the 18th Gelson's Market location in La Cañada Flintridge. Food chat sites like Chowhound suggest that the shopping experience at Gelson's is somewhere between that at Whole Foods and Ralphs. In an effort to get to know the store better, I took it upon myself to test that theory with a very unscientific experiment. Below are the results. By most accounts, Gelson's is renowned for their high-quality meats, seafood and produce.
