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.

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.

Unexpected medical issues have forced two longtime Glendale police dogs to retire early and another one to work part time, leaving just one full-strength dog to carry the unit. Police dogs Marlin and Sam retired this summer after roughly six years sniffing out bombs, narcotics and suspects. Marlin lost his sense of smell, and Sam, after years of strenuous physical demands, developed arthritis and a pinched nerve that causes his legs to fall asleep without steroids. The third dog, Quwai, is working part time in narcotics searches because he also has been struggling with medical issues, including having difficulty climbing and bouncing in and out of cars.

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.

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.

The parents of a 15-year-old Crescenta Valley High School student who jumped to his death on campus last year have filed a lawsuit alleging district officials turned a “blind eye” to the bullying that they allege prompted their son to take his own life. On Feb. 10, Drew Ferraro jumped to his death from a third-story building at the school in front of other students. Not long into the ensuing investigation, a Los Angeles County coroner's official said Drew did not reference bullying in any of the “very telling” four suicide notes found on his body.

Since its publication in 1965, Truman Capote's “In Cold Blood” has been widely recognized as a seminal work in American literature, frequently appearing on high school and college reading lists. But the contents of the nonfiction novel, which detail the brutal murder of a prosperous Kansas farmer and his family, are apparently too macabre for some Glendale Unified officials and parents who are seeking to block a request by a high school English teacher to add the text to the district's English curriculum.

Standing in a massive, 15-feet deep hole, city officials broke ground on a 44-unit affordable housing project that will give preferences to veterans on Wednesday. The $20.4 million project for low-income residents at 327-331 W. Salem St. is expected to be under construction for 15 to 18 months.
