Former Bell Police Chief Randy Adams, who was also chief of the Glendale Police Department for several years, has repaid the city of Bell nearly half of his $457,000 annual salary earned while he worked there. Adams paid the city via a wire transfer on Friday as part of a $214,714 settlement reached between him and the city, according to court records. Adams sued the city in 2012 for severance pay, then the city counter-sued Adams for his entire salary after he was ousted. Attorney Laura Walker, who represented the city of Bell, said the outcome was the best that could be hoped for the city.

The long simmering issue over the Sagebrush territory in La Cañada - an area whose students have historically been served by Glendale Unified - is still ongoing, school board members confirmed this week. The decades-old battle on behalf of La Cañada residents to match that city's school boundaries with its city limits was reignited by Sagebrush resident Tom Smith last year. For La Cañada school board President Ellen Multari, the end goal is to incorporate the La Cañada territory into that city's school district.

But as the months go by, other holidays roll around that aren't so easy to write - holidays that follow rules contradictory to each other and perhaps even to logic itself. So here, to start your New Year right, is the lowdown on how to write a whole year's worth of holidays. New Year's Eve and New Year's Day always start with capital letters and always take an apostrophe.

When the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team captured its first CIF championship on March 3, players jumped into each other's arms, a few tears flowed and emotions ran high. None of which is an uncommon sight when a team reaches its ultimate goal together after months of striving, but for Wildcats senior guard Vince De Guzman, the moment carried an extra poignant touch of bittersweet sentiment. "It felt amazing capturing a CIF title. It feels good just winning it, not only for the team, but for my dad's memory," says De Guzman, who lost his father Napoleon De Guzman to a heart attack over the summer.

Turns out the state law that forced Glendale to hold onto dozens of vintage arcade machines doesn't apply to the games at all, paving the way for an upcoming auction of the machines last valued at a total of roughly $100,000. More than 50 games, which have been collecting dust in storage for roughly three years are to be appraised by a specialist and then sold at auction, according to a City Council decision made this week at a City Hall meeting. The council had to decide what to do with the arcade machines, including two Ms. Pac-Mans and a Galaga game, after state Department of Finance officials said they didn't care about them.

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.
