Sid Gordon's mother, Rosaline, worked at Charles B. Behrens Memorial Hospital when he was young. Now he has become curious about the hospital, which was the precursor to Verdugo Hills Hospital. "My mother was a nurse and she always talked about work, but I was a kid then and didn't pay attention," said Gordon, who was a student at Clark Junior High School at the time. "She worked there after we came to California in 1960," he said. "We lived in La Crescenta, and she drove down to the hospital every day. My sister Randi was born there in 1962."

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.

GLENDALE — Two men were arrested Tuesday on charges that they stole more than $10,000 worth of water and power at two homes, officials said. [Corrected version. See below for details.] Glendale police arrested the men — Boris Nazaryan, 46, and Gagik Aslanian, 55 — on warrants issued as a result of the theft charges, Sgt.

Glendale Water & Power crews became suspicious of activity at two Verdugo Woodlands-area homes when they noticed electricity and water use had been drastically reduced, officials said.

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.

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.

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.

He thinks he's the latter. “When you're a true believer, you're in this to try to improve a place,” Ochoa said recently as he took a break from moving into his new office. He took his seat on the Glendale City Council dais for the first time Tuesday after assuming the role formerly filled by Jim Starbird, who retired in December. Ochoa's ascension is the culmination of a long history in the public sector.
