Iron Eyes Cody, who became famous as the “Crying Indian” in a 1971 “Keep America Beautiful” commercial, was active in Glendale's Boy Scout program for many years. Cody became involved in Scouting activities when his son joined the Scouts. He taught the boys Indian crafts in his 'Moosehead Museum,' which he had assembled in his Atwater home, according to a 1951 Glendale News-Press article. Because of his work with the Scouts, he was named to the Order of the Arrow, a national award given to Scouts who best exemplify the scout oath and law in their daily lives.

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.

A woman who ran an apparent bogus business in Glendale was arrested this week after she allegedly defrauded elderly victims who paid her to help them get Section 8 housing vouchers to avoid a long waiting list, police said. Naira Shakhmuradyan was taken into custody Tuesday at her Van Nuys home on an outstanding warrant stemming from the fraud investigation, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. “We believe there are many more victims that have not reported the theft-fraud,” she said.

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.

Walgreens is looking to come to Glendale, part of a plan that would include the opening of the city's third Trader Joe's market. The two companies have both applied for off-site liquor sales licenses with the city. Representatives from Walgreens and Trader Joe's presented plans for putting both stores in a currently unoccupied property at 101 E. Glenoaks Ave. at a city hearing last week. The 25,560 square-foot building, located at the intersection of Glenoaks and Brand Boulevard, would be split in two to accommodate the two businesses, according to city documents.

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...

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.
