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.

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Arlene Meadows Regarding your question in Thursday's edition of the Glendale News-Press, the fence ordinance should be repealed.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.

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...

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — When a woman drove her car through the front of Movses Golden Pastry five years ago, owner Armen Nazarian thought he could protect his store by installing steel barriers in front of the property. He was wrong. Early Tuesday, police said, a Burbank woman in the parking lot slammed on the gas pedal of her white Toyota 4Runner and barreled through the Glenoaks Boulevard corner bakery. She evaded a steel barrier and smashed through a storefront window, refrigerators, tables and chairs.
