Facing uncertain futures made murkier by decimated higher education budgets and a slumping job market, the Glendale High School class of 2009 received its diplomas Friday at a ceremony on Moyse Field. “Many of you have taken different paths to get here, but today we all celebrate,” said Principal Deb Rinder. “I am confident that you are prepared to make a difference in this world. But ultimately, the choice is yours.” Street vendors offered floral leis and motorists jockeyed for prime parking positions as some 4,300 family members, friends and educators poured into the school’s athletic facility.

Jeweler and watchmaker Garo Anserlian first started working on timepieces over 40 years ago, and his work has followed him from Beirut to Montrose - but Anserlian never expected his work would one day be connected to another planet. Since 2004, Anserlian, owner of Executive Jewelers and Executive Clock Gallery on Honolulu and Ocean View avenues in Montrose, has created custom mechanical watches that are based on a day on Mars, which is 24 hours and 39 1/2 minutes. Even as new technology has offered other options for the scientists and engineers who were the original customers for the special watches, Anserlian said his Mars connection has brought him new business from collectors and space enthusiasts.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court jury on Monday found Vrej Zadurian, who was already serving time in prison for another crime when he was arrested, guilty of killing and robbing Christopher Shahnazari on Nov. 1, 2005 in the Glendale home he shared with his family. “It's been seven years. It's a very painful process,” said Christopher Shahnazari's brother, Sevan Shahnazari.

Elannah Rose Sheklow's parents thought they were doing everything right. They had family dinners. They checked their daughter's homework nightly. They knew her friends. They talked to her about boys, drugs and school. But at 16 when Sheklow confessed she was smoking heroin and had been using other drugs as well for three years, the La Crescenta family's “idyllic life was shattered,” mother Hannah Spring Sheklow said. “I kept wracking my brain,” she told a crowd of more than 100 people who had come to the La Crescenta Library to hear her daughter's story Monday night.

Ellsworth Wareham is 95 and all too familiar with heart surgery, although not as a patient. The nonagenarian regularly assists with operations at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and is considering retirement. Just considering though, he says. Wareham says he feels great and enjoys his more than 60-mile commute from Loma Linda whenever he participates in operations. His longevity and good health have been the topic of discussion in a book, “The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest,” and a feature film, “How to Live Forever.

SOUTH GLENDALE — A 46-year-old reputed gang member was arrested Thursday morning on a $100,000 warrant for vandalizing an elevator at the Americana on Brand, which was likely done in retaliation for the incarceration of 20 Toonerville members three weeks ago, police said. With an arrest warrant in hand, Glendale Police detectives went to Alonzo Loera’s one-bedroom apartment on the 500 block of Windsor Road, which he shares with his father, and took him into custody.

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.

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.

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.
