As the graduating class of Glendale High School walked off Moyse Field, a group of about 10 students spontaneously ran a lap around the track. It was a reminder of the school's spirit that graduation speakers said will lead them to success in life. "We have a free spirit, rebelliousness," said 18-year-old Ani Antanesyan, who was panting from her short run. "We just did it. It's over. Yeah!" A crowd of adoring parents and friends packed the bleachers looking over about 650 students garbed in their school colors — the boys in black gowns and the girls in red gowns.

Sometimes I get tickets to sitcom tapings and game shows. Most recently I got tickets to "Let's Make A Deal" at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. I invited my wonderful dog-walker Julie Cummins and her 18-year old daughter, Nicole, an adorable actress trying to make it big in Hollywood. Julie and I are both struggling financially, and while waiting in the long line of other costumed hopefuls, we fantasized about what we would do if we got the unlikely chance to make a deal.

Those who go into the teaching field are often viewed as giving individuals due to the lack of financial rewards, and nowhere is that truer than with those who train to become teachers who sacrifice an entire year's salary. In California, most teacher candidates work in classrooms for no pay for a whole year before earning a teaching credential. Due to the demands of teaching during the day and taking teacher coursework in the evening, holding down a job to make ends meet is nearly impossible.

Lisa Dugum is 33 and lives in Northridge with her parents. “I have to live at home until I get married,” she said. “My parents are afraid I'll walk out the door and never come back.” The reason is not cultural or religious. Instead, it relates to a massive drug and murder conspiracy that Dugum got caught up in nearly a decade ago. Though all charges against her have been dismissed, the stories of those dark days remain online in our archives, frustrating her present and darkening her future.

This is the first of eight editions in which the News-Press looks back at the area's 2010-11 seasons, school by school, before looking ahead at the year to come. Locally, regionally or at the state level, Glendale Community College enjoyed arguably its finest athletic year ever. From the fall season right through the spring session, plenty of dramatic stories unfolded with several individual athletes winning state championships and the baseball team making an unexpected playoff run that nearly led to a state championship after winning its first conference championship since 2002.

In the aftermath of just two minutes and 18 seconds of a professional mixed martial arts career, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey proclaimed herself ready, willing, able and destined to be the next Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion. Miesha Tate, the reigning champion and a veteran of 14 pro fights, didn't see things in quite the same light. If Rousey's Olympic judo pedigree, utter domination of four opponents and cover girl beauty wasn't enough to make some noise, her equally brash and eloquent words very well would.

When veteran guitarist Bob Summers hits the stage at Pasadena jazz joint Red White & Bluezz next Saturday, it'll be much more than a hometown hoedown. The 74-year-old Pasadena-born musician's family helped pioneer the Los Angeles music scene, performing gospel, country, pop and rock 'n' roll, almost from the ground up. Summers' parents were singing spirituals on KPCC in the 1930s and his older sister Iris regularly performed with Singing Cowboy star Jimmy Wakely as part of western vocal trio the Sunshine Girls.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — The Seeley’s Furniture building has for the past 62 years dominated the southernmost entryway in the city, a track record that will continue for decades more after the City Council last week put it on the registry of historic resources. Placement on the registry comes as Los Angeles-based Creative Environments of Hollywood prepares to rework the site for tenancy after sitting vacant for more than 10 years at the corner of San Fernando Road and Brand Boulevard.

Sitting quietly along the ring apron in the background of a bustling gym, Marina Shafir is approached for an autograph. Shafir happily obliges and proceeds to scribble her signature across a martial arts belt, signing her very first autograph in the process. It certainly wasn't her last. That was in March. Since then, Shafir's stock and status in the world of women's mixed martial arts has only risen despite the fact that she's still yet to make her professional debut. Upon an initial meeting, Shafir comes off as relatively shy, but that doesn't last long.
