Ryan Carter LA CRESCENTA -- Andrew Adelman says he enjoys the small-town feel of La Crescenta. He loves the fact that the unincorporated community is so close to metropolitan areas, and yet it keeps its Mayberry U.S.A. flavor, he said. But the flavor of the town he will now help represent won't stop him from trying to enhance the image and prestige of the unincorporated foothill area of 21,000 people, he said in an interview. And it hasn't prevented him from musing on the idea of incorporation.

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."

Jackson Bell Juan Chavez Jr.'s swearing in Tuesday at the Glendale police station was a homecoming of sorts. Chavez returned after an eight-year stint as a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to serve Glendale, the city he grew up in.

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.

The California Department of Transportation must quickly sell some of the nearly 500 properties it owns in Los Angeles, South Pasadena and Pasadena, according to a bill by Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge), which was signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Jerry Brown. The homes are located in the so-called 710 gap, where transportation officials are studying a 4.5-mile tunnel that would connect the Long Beach (710) and Foothill (210) freeways. Brown vetoed a similar bill last year.

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.

The nonagenarian regularly assists with operations at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and is considering retirement. Just considering though, he says.

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.

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.
