A 33-year-old male parolee who was convicted of killing his mother has been charged again, this time for allegedly hitting a neighbor over the head with a piece of metal, officials said. Taron Gorgoyan faces one count of felony assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the beating late Thursday, according to Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney. His neighbor received 16 stitches on his face and head after he was struck with the metal object at about 10:50 p.m. in an apartment building in the 100 block of North Kenilworth Avenue, according to Police Sgt.

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.

LA CRESCENTA ? Fire officials Thursday announced plans for an Aug. 1 evacuation drill for residents in the Briggs Terrace area of La Crescenta in response to a spate of fires in the Angeles National Forest. The drill and proceeding public fire safety meeting were part of a report to the Crescenta Valley Town Council Thursday night in which officials said years of drought and dry vegetation, combined with numerous fires in the surrounding mountains, have brought fire season to the forefront early this summer.

Members of the Crescenta Valley High School graduating class of 2007 walked toward Stengel Field, took their seats and eagerly waited to receive their diplomas during the school's commencement ceremony on Wednesday. "It's surreal and I can't believe it's over," said graduate Anna Benjamin, 17. "My high school years were the best years for me." As the graduates made their way to the field, family and friends shouted and waved. Some even stopped to give hugs and kisses. Grace Joo, 17, was overwhelmed that she was graduating.

When Lisa Janacua, an office manager and assistant music librarian for Walt Disney Pictures in Burbank, volunteered for the California Army National Guard in 2003, she knew Iraq might be in her future. Janacua, the daughter of a Marine, was bitten by an urge to serve, but she would have preferred to do so on U.S. soil. "Most of us don't want to go," she said. Janacua's three daughters — who range in age from 12 to 18 — didn't want their mother to leave their Hermosa Avenue home in Montrose for the place they know only as a distant land of improvised explosive devices.

48 HOURS "Why you..." Those are the most dreaded words in Three Stooges movies because they were always followed by Moe conking either Larry, Curly or Shemp on the head or jabbing two fingers in their eyes. While that kind of slapstick comedy is not for everyone, it's hard not to love these four masters of madcap mania. I used to watch them on TV after school each day, and I must admit, it kept my brother and me from fighting, if only for that half-hour.

The parents of a 15-year-old Crescenta Valley High School student who jumped to his death on campus last year have filed a lawsuit alleging district officials turned a “blind eye” to the bullying that they allege prompted their son to take his own life. On Feb. 10, Drew Ferraro jumped to his death from a third-story building at the school in front of other students. Not long into the ensuing investigation, a Los Angeles County coroner's official said Drew did not reference bullying in any of the “very telling” four suicide notes found on his body.

Driving down Kenneth Road in northwest Glendale, some may have noticed the slow disappearance of the famous white mansion known to the local residents as the “Gone with the Wind” house. It is disheartening to know that an important part of Glendale's history is slowly disappearing behind solid black wrought-iron gates and shrubbery strategically planted to eventually hide what is one of our area's prized showcase homes. For more than 90 years, locals have strolled or driven their cars past this gracious Greek revival mansion, enjoying its beauty and detailed architecture.

When Crescenta Valley High’s girls’ soccer team found itself 80 minutes from winning the Pacific League title, senior standout Tori Baldridge was there at the center of the field — right where a captain is supposed to be. But she was dressed in street clothes rather than a uniform, crutches under each arm, a slipper on one foot and a cast on another rather than cleats. Her playing days at Crescenta Valley ended by an unfortunate injury, her days as a Falcon were nevertheless far from over.
