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.

By Bill Kisliuk When Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) runs, it normally takes months of hand-shaking and many hundreds of thousands of dollars before he crosses the finish line. On June 20, the congressman representing Glendale and most of Burbank completed a race in Washington, D.C., that merely required some jogging, bicycling and swimming. Schiff completed his first triathlon in one hour and 46 minutes. "It was very hot," Schiff said. "It started out in the mid-80s and got into the 90s. I was done before it hit the 90s."

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.

I almost got into a car accident this weekend. It was one of those moments where the world moved forward in slow motion and the time between my realization of what was happening and it actually happening was so minuscule, that reacting didn't seem like it would pay off. But it did. I ended up honking with such force that I was sure I had awakened the neighbors from their Sunday slumber on the quiet residential street I hoped would not become the...

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.

Hoover High School Principal Kevin Welsh knew the class of 2009 was unique when he saw the students dancing at their prom. “It’s the anti-freaking class,” he told an audience at the school’s football field for the seniors’ graduation ceremony Friday, explaining that the students had “danced appropriately” during their final high school dance. “I’ve never had a class like that,” he said, drawing laughs from the audience.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — The Seeley’s Furniture building has for the past 62 years dominated the southernmost entryway in the city, a track record that will continue for decades more after the City Council last week put it on the registry of historic resources. Placement on the registry comes as Los Angeles-based Creative Environments of Hollywood prepares to rework the site for tenancy after sitting vacant for more than 10 years at the corner of San Fernando Road and Brand Boulevard.

Instructor Curtis Adney places a transparent copy of his high school report card on the overhead projector. Not a pretty picture. Three Ds and two Fs. Then Adney places another transparent copy of another report card, this time from College of the Sequoias. Straight A’s. “Everyone has the brain power to get all A’s,” Adney says. “Everyone in this class has the natural brain capacity to get all A’s in school.” For students, the ability to turn grades around is as simple as making key lifestyle and academic changes, with a few tips and tricks along the way. Such is the cornerstone of Adney’s class, Natural A’s, at Toll Middle School Monday afternoons, presented by the Glendale Community College Services Education Program.

Ryan Carter LA CRESCENTA -- Andrew Adelman says he enjoys the small-town feel of La Crescenta. He loves the fact that the unincorporated community is so close to metropolitan areas, and yet it keeps its Mayberry U.S.A. flavor, he said. But the flavor of the town he will now help represent won't stop him from trying to enhance the image and prestige of the unincorporated foothill area of 21,000 people, he said in an interview. And it hasn't prevented him from musing on the idea of incorporation.

James Jenkins -- who recently completed his freshman year at San Jose State University, where he was a member of the men's basketball team -- had separated from his father early Wednesday morning.

Sid Gordon's mother, Rosaline, worked at Charles B. Behrens Memorial Hospital when he was young. Now he has become curious about the hospital, which was the precursor to Verdugo Hills Hospital. "My mother was a nurse and she always talked about work, but I was a kid then and didn't pay attention," said Gordon, who was a student at Clark Junior High School at the time. "She worked there after we came to California in 1960," he said. "We lived in La Crescenta, and she drove down to the hospital every day. My sister Randi was born there in 1962."
