A 21-year-old Elk Grove woman was arrested this week on suspicion of soliciting sex in exchange for cash to an undercover Glendale detective during a sting at a local hotel, police said. Glendale detectives were investigating possible prostitution advertisements on Backpage.com Monday night when they contacted Mallory Osta, who had listed her phone number in an ad, according to police. Osta, who police said went by the name Giana, allegedly told detectives she had just got off work and was available to hang out. After an undercover detective indicated he would only be available to hang out for 30 minutes, she told him it would cost $140, police said.

Regardless of size, a good art show can transport an audience outside of its everyday reality and into another space of consciousness, however briefly. If a small-scale exhibition does this, the possibility of a meaningful emotional connection between a viewer and the artist increases exponentially. Intimacy has tremendous potential for transformative experience in a way that a blockbuster show (where people shuffle through like so much cattle) seldom does. That's what is happening at the moment in the Norton Simon's new "Face It: The Photographic Portrait.

City officials aim to increase the life of the 535-acre Scholl Canyon Landfill - both a moneymaker and money saver for Glendale - by more than a decade with two proposed expansion options that are currently under environmental review. The first option involves an approximately 11.5-million-cubic-yard horizontal expansion that would add 13 years to the landfill's life, while the second includes both horizontal and vertical extensions equaling about 16.5 million cubic yards, increasing the landfill's life by 19 years, according to the project's draft environmental impact report.

ANI AMIRKHANIAN It always amazes me how Armenian stereotypes are more prevalent within the Armenian culture than they are within the general populace. As with any culture, people feel offended and insulted if someone uses stereotypes to label the actions, lifestyles, traditions or customs of their culture. The Armenian subcultures or subgroups are quite different from each other, so naturally they are conflicted with varying stereotypes.

For the first time in more than three years, the Glendale Fire Department is looking to hire. Fire officials plan to start accepting applications in August in an effort to hire 15 new firefighters who meet department qualifications, have a good work ethic and are willing to provide community service, Battalion Chief Tom Propst said. "There is a lot of competition out there and a lot of interest," he said. The push to hire new firefighters comes after a protracted recession, citywide budget cuts and operational changes in the Fire Department that kept hiring at a standstill despite ongoing retirements.

LOS ANGELES - When “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey began her mixed martial arts career, it came to be in part due to the inspiration of Gina “Conviction” Carano. “Thank God for Gina Carano,” Rousey told the Glendale News-Press in August of 2011. “I have so much respect for her. I'm grateful for what she's done.” Rousey, the current and first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion, has long said that it would be an honor to fight Carano, though the latter has been absent from competition since the summer of 2009.

Glendale and Burbank students recently began taking the new computerized exams that have replaced the pencil-and-paper standardized exams across California. Both school districts have spent months preparing to administer the new exams that align with the state's newly implemented curriculum known as the Common Core. The schools will not receive scores measuring how well students do this year - which is considered a transitional period with many state and local educators seeing it as a year to “test the test.” Burbank Unified students began taking the exams earlier this month and, so far, it “has gone very well,” said Sharon Cuseo, director of instruction and accountability for Burbank Unified.

Victims of former Councilman John Drayman's embezzlement scheme said they were shocked on Wednesday to learn the convicted felon would serve the remainder of his time in custody - an expected total of six weeks - in home confinement, after spending just eight days in jail. Originally, Drayman was sentenced last week to serve one year behind bars , but once he was in custody, his projected release date was slashed in half . It was cut once again Wednesday afternoon. “We spent three years working with the police and the district attorney's office trying to bring this man to justice and there's no justice,” said Dale Dawson, business administrator for the Montrose Shopping Park Assn., the organization from which Drayman had been accused of stealing more than $304,000 over seven years.

A 66-year-old man died Thursday after receiving a massage at a newly opened spa in Glendale, police said. The man was reportedly lying on his back while getting the massage at about 10:40 p.m. at the spa in the 500 block of East Broadway when he suddenly coughed and became unresponsive, Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said.
