After being courted on the national stage by a number of top-level NCAA Division I men's basketball teams, Flintridge Prep point guard Robert Cartwright verbally committed to Stanford University over the phone Wednesday evening. Cartwright's commitment to the Cardinal comes after a strong junior season and busy summer. He became the undisputed leader of the Rebels in 2012-13 and flourished in the role after helping them win a CIF Southern Section Division V-AA crown as a freshman. “Stanford is Stanford, it's an incredible academic school, it's a place I felt very comfortable with the coaches,” said Cartwright, who took an unofficial trip to the school in the spring.

A rotating schedule of overnight and early-morning store openings significantly eased the Black Friday crowds at the Glendale Galleria, producing a much calmer scene compared to years past. Black Friday used to be confined to early-morning store openings, attracting huge crowds of pre-dawn deal seekers. But this year, with major retailers pushing their opening times further into Thursday, the onslaught of shoppers was spread out, leaving relatively normal conditions for those who arrived at 6 or 7 a.m. The difference wasn't lost on Eva Hermano, who was shopping with her daughter, Leslie, at the Galleria at 6:30 a.m. “I said to her, 'Where are all the people?

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.

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.

Once slated for a multifamily housing project, to be built by an affordable housing developer that the city is now suing for fraud, a central Glendale site is on its way to becoming a “Veterans Village.” With a unanimous vote, the City Council, in its dual role as the Housing Authority, agreed to partner with an affordable housing developer on Tuesday to build a roughly $15.5-million project that will give preference to veterans. “It's a great day for Glendale,” said Mayor Frank Quintero, a Vietnam War veteran.

The local Armenian community braced against a public rush to judgment after authorities on Wednesday announced a major crackdown on Armenian organized crime that included 74 people arrested on fraud and racketeering charges. The federal indictments, unveiled at Glendale police headquarters Wednesday, alleged that members of the gang Armenian Power engaged in a range of white collar crimes to defraud the public of $20 million. In a city where people of Armenian descent make up roughly 40% of the population, news of the arrests raised fears of what seems to be the inevitable: a rush by a vocal few to reinforce stereotypes.

Creators of a software program called Grammarly recently conducted a study of the grammar used in LinkedIn member profiles. They found that people with fewer grammar errors in their profiles ascended to higher positions, got more promotions and changed jobs more often. The implication: better grammar correlates with greater success. Without knowing more about the study it's hard to know how strong that correlation is. For example, the idea of "grammar errors" is surprisingly fluid.

Those who go into the teaching field are often viewed as giving individuals due to the lack of financial rewards, and nowhere is that truer than with those who train to become teachers who sacrifice an entire year's salary. In California, most teacher candidates work in classrooms for no pay for a whole year before earning a teaching credential. Due to the demands of teaching during the day and taking teacher coursework in the evening, holding down a job to make ends meet is nearly impossible.

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.

Two Newport Beach residents hope to stop the arrival of two large yachts -- including one owned by Americana on Brand developer Rick Caruso -- slated to moor temporarily in the open harbor area in front of their homes next month. When the boat owners independently asked to anchor in the newly dredged waterfront, Newport Beach Harbor Commission members approved their requests as a welcome opportunity to try out a different use for the area on the west end of Lido Island. But residents fear this may be a first step toward the harbor changing for the worse, according to the Daily Pilot . "This is just a trial, they keep assuring us of that," said Pamela Whitesides, who has lived in a waterfront building for about 20 years.

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.
