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.

Gretchen Hoffman LA CRESCENTA -- Almost two years ago, Sharon Wilson's estranged husband gouged the floors, punched holes in the walls and piled flammable material on all the vents of their La Crescenta home. Two days later, he came back, doused everything with gasoline and burned the house to the ground. 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.

Paul and Arlene Meadows Regarding your question in Thursday's edition of the Glendale News-Press, the fence ordinance should be repealed. One of our cherished American dreams is to own a little home with a white picket fence -- but apparently in Glendale this can only happen if you comply with the narrow permission of city government. Of the 90-some people who voiced their opinions Tuesday at the City Council meeting, only one spoke in favor of the ordinance, and his arguments for keeping the ordinance were not compelling.

The Burbank and Glendale movie studios famous around the world know charity begins at home. The Walt Disney Co., Warner Bros. Studios and DreamWorks Animation each donate hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, gear and volunteer time to a host of organizations annually. And they use the preferences of their local employees, as well as a commitment to children and the arts, as their guides. The often secretive studios also work together on the charitable side. For example, all have donated money and expect to provide volunteer workers when a Habitat for Humanity project breaks ground in Burbank next year.

Every child who has attended elementary school in the U.S. can without a doubt recall the famous “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue” rhyme. Though the rest of the poem is a distant memory, as adults, many of us have been exposed to the less celebratory side of Christopher Columbus and the horrific circumstances - slavery, exploitation, disease and, ultimately, genocide - credited to his name that ravaged indigenous people in America after he arrived. For the last few decades, anti-Columbus Day activism has been steadily growing amid a day usually celebrated with mall sales, time off from school and extended bar hours.

Nearly one-quarter of Pasadena's African American residents left the city in the last 10 years, replaced mostly by Asians and Pacific Islanders, according to 2010 Census figures. A lack of affordable housing and shifts in the real estate market spurred black families to leave town, according to observers, while Asian families from around the San Gabriel Valley opted for a Pasadena address. The number of whites and Latinos, who together represent more than 60% of city residents, changed little between 2000 and 2010.

Dominick's Italian Restaurant, a community staple in the Crescenta Valley for more than 40 years, has closed and everything - right down to the light fixtures - has been removed. There is no sign on the door announcing the closure, but a large tear in the awning over the front door is a tell-tale signal to passersby that the restaurant, known for it pizzas, pasta and beer, is no longer in operation. The restaurant at 2948 Foothill Blvd. was opened by Frank and Carmela Russo in 1970.

A painting transforming the limestone karst towers that jut out of Vietnam's Halong Bay into a red and yellow fever dream hangs on the wall of an Eagle Rock restaurant named for the bay. A fountain in the center of the dining room tries to evoke the sound of water slapping on the massive spires, but mainly serves to lure toddlers who really, really want to splash their hands through the falling streams. Bathing toddler notwithstanding, Halong Bay is a quiet eatery with clean lines and a beckoning menu of French and Vietnamese cuisines.
