Glendale, the airship capital of the world! That was the dream of a brilliant, self-taught inventor by the name of Thomas B. Slate. Selecting Glendale as the site of the Slate Aircraft Company in 1925, his futuristic portrayal of an efficient and comfortable means of passenger travel between Los Angeles and New York, as well as the profit potential of the venture, convinced many prominent Glendale residents to become stockholders. Intrigued by his commitment to name the first airship built "The City of Glendale," the City Council leased a large tract of land to Slate at the new Grand Central Air Terminal.

Gretchen Hoffman LA CRESCENTA -- Almost two years ago, Sharon Wilson's estranged husband gouged the floors, punched holes in the walls and piled flammable material on all the vents of their La Crescenta home. Two days later, he came back, doused everything with gasoline and burned the house to the ground. Patrick Wilson was convicted of aggravated arson and sentenced to five years in jail, but his wife -- their divorce isn't final -- has been told he could be out of jail as early as April.

GLENDALE — Three Glendale residents, along with five other people, were ordered to pay $3 million in penalties and restitution as part of a settlement that alleged their city-based company charged thousands of customers for shoddy and overpriced home repair work, officials announced Monday. Avetik Avo Gyandzhyan, 38, his wife, Lilit Lusparyan, 28, and Estine Akopyan, 28, worked for the Glendale-based parent company, SRVS Charge Inc., and its affiliated companies, which overcharged about 6,000 customers each year for poor-quality home repair since 1989, according to the state attorney general’s office.

Paul and Arlene Meadows Regarding your question in Thursday's edition of the Glendale News-Press, the fence ordinance should be repealed. One of our cherished American dreams is to own a little home with a white picket fence -- but apparently in Glendale this can only happen if you comply with the narrow permission of city government. Of the 90-some people who voiced their opinions Tuesday at the City Council meeting, only one spoke in favor of the ordinance, and his arguments for keeping the ordinance were not compelling.

While uncorking a pitch in June for the Lansing Lugnuts, Bryan Longpre felt a pain shoot through his right elbow. Longpre, a 2005 Crescenta Valley High graduate, had an idea that he damaged a ligament in his elbow. He continued to pitch, though the discomfort didn't subside and was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar nerve ligament. "Maybe I was too old school and I tried to fight through it," Longpre said. "My velocity went down, and I wasn't sure if I should rest it or have surgery.

Tom in Glendale wrote recently to ask about plurals of names ending in S. "How do you pluralize a name like Ross?" he asked. "It has to be Rosses, right? I just saw Ross' as the plural, as in 'the Ross' moved to Glendale last year.' That can't be right." Tom made my job easy this week. He nailed it. One Ross, two Rosses. Simple as that. So why doesn't everyone find it so easy? That's a question I've been asking myself for years. And the best answer I've come up with is that the English language has a debilitating S addiction.

Nearly one-quarter of Pasadena's African American residents left the city in the last 10 years, replaced mostly by Asians and Pacific Islanders, according to 2010 Census figures. A lack of affordable housing and shifts in the real estate market spurred black families to leave town, according to observers, while Asian families from around the San Gabriel Valley opted for a Pasadena address. The number of whites and Latinos, who together represent more than 60% of city residents, changed little between 2000 and 2010.

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.

A Hollywood woman was arrested Wednesday after allegedly selling bogus Disneyland tickets on Craigslist in Glendale to at least half a dozen families, some of whom didn't learn of the fakery until being turned away at the theme park's gates. The woman, Alisa Yenokyan, 22, was taken into custody about 6 p.m. after she agreed to meet officers who posed as potential Disneyland ticket purchasers at Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue in Los Angeles, Police Det.

He was a scoring frenzy, a one-man tour de force who raised the level of those around him, ignited the sporting spirit of a campus long absent of much to get excited about and made literal and figurative waves by lifting a historically struggling program to CIF prominence while leaving his statistical signature upon state chronicle. A 6-foot, 185-pound muscled phenom with a lighting bolt for a right arm, he took a lightly regarded program and put it on the map. Along the way of four seasons of scoring parades and CIF triumph, Hoover High senior Hakop Kaplanyan provided record-breaking revelry, clutch histrionics and left a school and an area as a three-time All-Area Boys' Water Polo Player of the Year, as voted for the third consecutive time by the sports editors and writers of the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader, La Cañada Valley Sun and Pasadena Sun. "We were happy to have him here all four years and he made everybody around him good," says Jack Van Patten, Hoover's athletic director.
