For the first time in more than three years, the Glendale Fire Department is looking to hire. Fire officials plan to start accepting applications in August in an effort to hire 15 new firefighters who meet department qualifications, have a good work ethic and are willing to provide community service, Battalion Chief Tom Propst said. "There is a lot of competition out there and a lot of interest," he said. The push to hire new firefighters comes after a protracted recession, citywide budget cuts and operational changes in the Fire Department that kept hiring at a standstill despite ongoing retirements.

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.

GLENDALE — An attorney has filed a lawsuit against two Glendale police officers, one of whom he claims was having an affair with his wife, and he says the pair conspired to have him arrested. The attorney, Robert Yousefian, claims his wife admitted that she was having an affair with Glendale Police Officer Michael Lizarraga, who arrested Yousefian on drug and assault charges in August 2007, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Despite "overwhelming evidence" that Yousefian had not committed a crime, Glendale police maliciously investigated him, which led to an improper prosecution that violated his civil rights, the lawsuit claims.

The California Department of Public Health has set a draft limit for a water contaminant known as chromium 6 at 10 parts per billion, significantly lower than the current cap of 50 parts per billion for total chromium in drinking water. The state agency used more than a decade of research done by the city of Glendale to set the limit, which once its finalized will impact water providers statewide. “California is the first and only state in the nation to establish a maximum contaminant level specifically for chromium-6 in drinking water,” Ron Chapman, the department's director and public health officer said in a statement.

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.

The story behind Kenneth Village, the cluster of shops on Kenneth Road between Sonora and Grandview avenues in northwest Glendale, goes back to a time before those streets even existed. It was a time when it was open country, west of the little village of Casa Verdugo, and totally separate from another settlement to the southeast called Glendale. Vineyards, citrus orchards and commercial gardens covered most of the land. The most dominant man-made feature was a small cemetery, called Grand View, which opened in the mid-1880s, and it was one of the few such places around.

A 21-year-old Elk Grove woman was arrested this week on suspicion of soliciting sex in exchange for cash to an undercover Glendale detective during a sting at a local hotel, police said. Glendale detectives were investigating possible prostitution advertisements on Backpage.com Monday night when they contacted Mallory Osta, who had listed her phone number in an ad, according to police. Osta, who police said went by the name Giana, allegedly told detectives she had just got off work and was available to hang out. After an undercover detective indicated he would only be available to hang out for 30 minutes, she told him it would cost $140, police said.

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.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) took the California Department of Public Health to task Monday for “dragging its feet” on setting new limits on chromium 6 in drinking water, adding to a growing chorus of frustration among local officials. In a letter sent to the department's director Monday, Schiff called the years-long process for setting more strict contamination limits “unconscionable.” “I want to try to light a fire under them to get moving,” Schiff said in a phone interview.

EAGLE ROCK - Though still three weeks away from the start of the seven-game season, there's already plenty of reason for optimism surrounding the Glendale Bears Youth Football and Cheerleading organization. Practices appear to be crisp and various fundamentals are being learned in anticipation of the upcoming campaign beginning Sept. 21. It's left first-year president Cynthia Perez energized for a program that was formed in 1969. “We are going to have about 125-150 players, plus 60 cheerleaders this year,” said Perez, who served as the organization's interim president last season.

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.

While welcoming a draft of a proposed and long-awaited limit on the drinking water contaminant chromium 6, local politicians said they fear the state standard doesn't go far enough. The California Department of Public Health on Thursday set a draft limit of chromium 6 at 10 parts per billion, significantly higher than a goal set by state officials in 2011. At the time, officials set a goal of 0.02 parts per billion for the cancer-causing ion, but the Department of Public Health decided on a much higher maximum level, stating that the lower target would not be economically feasible for water agencies.
