Less than three minutes away from helping the Glendale High boys' water polo team win the program's first CIF Southern Section championship, Arman Momdzhyan heard an unpleasant sound and looked over his right shoulder in dismay. It was the reverberation of the referee's whistle and signaled the senior utility player had picked up his third exclusion of the tight contest with 2:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. Momdzhyan arrived at the Glendale bench and sat nervously while the Nitros were left to compete without their leading scorer while protecting a two-goal lead against Los Altos in the CIF Southern Section Division V title match at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine on Nov. 23. “It was without a doubt the most stressful few minutes of my life,” said Momdzhyan, who finished with a team-high six goals for top-seeded Glendale in a 13-11 win against second-seeded Los Altos.

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.

A garden shed in a northern-beaches suburb of Sydney, Australia, may sound like a remote connection to a Three Stooges film festival being held at Glendale's Alex Theatre on Nov. 30, but the rare find by a film collector there has fans of the zany comedy trio rejoicing. The Three Stooges, a former Vaudevillian troupe, made 190 short films in their long Hollywood career. One film, the Technicolor “Hello Pop,” an MGM 18-minute backstage musical made in 1933 was thought lost forever when a fire at MGM studios in 1967 destroyed what was then thought to be the last print.

The City Council further clamped down on smokers Tuesday night, unanimously approving new rules that will ban smoking in all new apartment and condominium units and add another layer of punishment that can be applied to those who break Glendale's anti-smoking rules. “This council has taken great strides,” Mayor Dave Weaver said at the council meeting. Since 2008, Glendale has implemented a variety of smoking rules as part of what's known as the “Fresh Air Ordinance,” restricting smoking in many public areas, on patios of multi-unit buildings and even in common areas of apartment complexes.

In honor of one of the most famous icons who has ever lived in the city, Glendale High School will change the name of its auditorium to the John Wayne Performing Arts Center, after the legendary actor who is not otherwise recognized in the city where he came of age. Before he took on his stage name, Marion Morrison attended what was then Glendale's only high school, then called Glendale Union High School. The future western film star played on the school's football team, served as class president during his senior year and acted in school productions before graduating in 1925.

Though last year saw a number of Honolulu Avenue eateries close their doors, new ones quickly pop up to take their place. One of the newest to debut in the Montrose shopping district is Thee Elbow Room, a petite-sized coffee and lunch spot, replacing the former Java Brew. Soft-spoken and bright-eyed, chief and co-owner Cristal Arguelles moves efficiently through the restaurant, providing a sandwich that made one customer exclaim “home-run” upon the first bite. “I'm very excited to have her here,” said Janelle Williams, a customer and neighbor.

Before he was a teenager, Joseph Cordova's mother had died, he was living with his alcoholic grandmother and suffering from serious dental problems that tore down his confidence - and could have eventually led to life-threatening health problems. His front two teeth were chipped terribly. He had missing teeth and the ones that were in his mouth were crooked and riddled with cavities. And he had problems with his gums. However, with the help of Glendale Healthy Kids, a local pastor and a dentist at USC, Cordova now has a smile he is proud of and he's venturing into a real estate career.

There's got to be something in the air. In recent weeks, I've gotten not one but two e-mails from readers about the word “got” and its cousin “gotten.” “I will never forget several teachers telling me that using 'got' in any sentence anytime was simply being lazy,” wrote John in Pasadena, “that it was bad English, uncouth, uneducated, etc.” We could probably write this off as a fluke, perhaps guessing that John went to a...
