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."

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.

GLENDALE — An attorney has filed a lawsuit against two Glendale police officers, one of whom he claims was having an affair with his wife, and he says the pair conspired to have him arrested. The attorney, Robert Yousefian, claims his wife admitted that she was having an affair with Glendale Police Officer Michael Lizarraga, who arrested Yousefian on drug and assault charges in August 2007, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Despite "overwhelming evidence" that Yousefian had not committed a crime, Glendale police maliciously investigated him, which led to an improper prosecution that violated his civil rights, the lawsuit claims.

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.

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.

Less than three minutes away from helping the Glendale High boys' water polo team win the program's first CIF Southern Section championship, Arman Momdzhyan heard an unpleasant sound and looked over his right shoulder in dismay. It was the reverberation of the referee's whistle and signaled the senior utility player had picked up his third exclusion of the tight contest with 2:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. Momdzhyan arrived at the Glendale bench and sat nervously while the Nitros were left to compete without their leading scorer while protecting a two-goal lead against Los Altos in the CIF Southern Section Division V title match at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine on Nov. 23. “It was without a doubt the most stressful few minutes of my life,” said Momdzhyan, who finished with a team-high six goals for top-seeded Glendale in a 13-11 win against second-seeded Los Altos.

The story behind Kenneth Village, the cluster of shops on Kenneth Road between Sonora and Grandview avenues in northwest Glendale, goes back to a time before those streets even existed. It was a time when it was open country, west of the little village of Casa Verdugo, and totally separate from another settlement to the southeast called Glendale. Vineyards, citrus orchards and commercial gardens covered most of the land. The most dominant man-made feature was a small cemetery, called Grand View, which opened in the mid-1880s, and it was one of the few such places around.

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.
