Despite some construction issues, the tent for the Ramos Bros. Circus went up Wednesday, just in time for performances to begin this Thursday. While there will be free shows for needy kids like last year, there won't be any camels, such as Atula, who escaped from the circus causing a ruckus on a Glendale street last November. The circus can have cats and dogs, but no other animals. The camel slip-up was part of what prompted city officials to ask that the circus owners refrain from bringing animals this year and a last-minute plea to City Council didn't change the city's decision.

When boxer Art “Lionheart” Hovhannisyan walked into the Glendale Fighting Club on Monday morning, his eyes popped wide open, his usual grin widened and he shook his head. The Brand Boulevard corner gym was packed with reporters and cameras clicking and shooting away. They were all there for an open workout and press conference with Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who's fast become a superstar with big-time endorsements, magazine covers, movie roles and a laundry list of busted arms left behind during her championship run. Media attention has grown over the years at the GFC thanks in most part to Rousey.

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.

When Chef Nadav Bashan's boyhood dream of firefighting didn't pan out, he went to plan B: the Southern California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena. Bashan, whose cozy north Glendale restaurant bears the same name, cooks by a simple philosophy of salt and pepper, no marinades or rubs, only the finest local ingredients prepared simply and let the ingredients shine on their own. His work ethic? There's no way to wing it. You have to work hard and pay your dues. Bashan began paying his dues on just his second day of culinary school, when he landed an internship at Lobster, a new restaurant in Santa Monica, under celebrity chef Allison Thurber (The Water Grill)

The City Council made an unusual move on Tuesday when it granted a 14-year development agreement with a developer to lock in approvals for a six-story apartment building at Central and Wilson avenues to cover the decade-plus that may pass before construction can begin. The building, being developed by Vancouver, Wash.-based Holland Partners Group, will have 152 apartments, along with 23 live-work units on the ground floor, facing Central. The project, however, can't proceed as long as Big 5 Sports stays in its single-story building on the southeast corner of Central and Wilson.

Instructor Curtis Adney places a transparent copy of his high school report card on the overhead projector. Not a pretty picture. Three Ds and two Fs. Then Adney places another transparent copy of another report card, this time from College of the Sequoias. Straight A’s. “Everyone has the brain power to get all A’s,” Adney says. “Everyone in this class has the natural brain capacity to get all A’s in school.” For students, the ability to turn grades around is as simple as making key lifestyle and academic changes, with a few tips and tricks along the way. Such is the cornerstone of Adney’s class, Natural A’s, at Toll Middle School Monday afternoons, presented by the Glendale Community College Services Education Program.

As police agencies in the tri-city area settle into new digital radio systems, many departments have made, or are considering making, those communications secret, saying it is a response to a growing propensity of listeners to interfere with operations. After spending $7 million on upgrades to comply with a federal 2013 deadline to switch police radio communications from analog to digital, Pasadena encrypted its main frequency, blocking access to outsiders. Listening in on police radio transmissions is a technique media organizations have used for decades to stay on top of breaking public safety events.

A Glendale man who was brutally beaten and later shot to death had briefly escaped his attackers and attempted to chase down a passing motorist as he yelled and pleaded for help because he feared he was going to be killed, detectives testified in court this week. Moments before, the passing motorist had urged the men attacking 33-year-old Joshua West to stop last April 24 in the 10700 block of Vinedale Street in Sun Valley, but she continued driving because “she was too afraid to stop and let him in,” Los Angeles Police Det. Joshua Byers testified Tuesday during a preliminary hearing for West's alleged attackers.

About 600 children and teens in the L.A. County foster system -- along with about 700 less-fortunate children from area schools and nonprofit organizations -- got their own performance at the Ramos Bros. Circus on Sunday thanks to a former NBA player who decided to pay for the event “instead of buying a car.” Brad Wright - a UCLA alum who played for the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets - and his wife paid for the 11 a.m. performance, which was added to the circus' regular schedule for a packed crowd.

Glendale played a starring role in the 1945 movie "Mildred Pierce," the story of a single mother who opens a restaurant right here in the heart of Glendale. The movie was based on a book by the same name written by James M. Cain in 1941. “Cain portrayed Glendale as the epitome of the working-class aspirations and disappointments in Depression-era California,” said Arlene Vidor, past president of the Glendale Historical Society, who wrote an article on the movie for the society's Summer 2010 newsletter.
