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.

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.

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.

There's got to be something in the air. In recent weeks, I've gotten not one but two e-mails from readers about the word “got” and its cousin “gotten.” “I will never forget several teachers telling me that using 'got' in any sentence anytime was simply being lazy,” wrote John in Pasadena, “that it was bad English, uncouth, uneducated, etc.” We could probably write this off as a fluke, perhaps guessing that John went to a...

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.

Unable to walk or talk, 8-year-old Aidan Leung may be headed to a precedent-setting case before the California Supreme Court that centers on a lawsuit in which his family won an estimated $96-million judgment against Verdugo Hills Hospital for negligence shortly after he was born. [Correction appended. See below for details.] An appellate court wiped out that verdict on March 23, reducing the hospital’s liability to about $100,000. But in an unusual step, the justices asked the Supreme Court to reverse their ruling and “repudiate” a decades-old legal maxim, called the release rule.

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."

Chavez returned after an eight-year stint as a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to serve Glendale, the city he grew up in. He came home to help keep the high quality of life for others that he experienced during his formative years.
