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 Glendale resident, along with a Los Angeles resident and a nonprofit group, filed a lawsuit this week asking a federal judge to force the city of Glendale to remove a controversial statue in a public park that honors women victimized by the Japanese government during World War II. The lawsuit is the latest attempt to remove the 1,100-pound statue for so-called “comfort women,” which was installed in July. Supporters of comfort women say the Japanese military coerced an estimated 80,000 to 200,000 women from Korea, China and other countries to work as prostitutes in military brothels against their will.

After Billie Burke, best known for her portrayal of Glinda the Good Witch in the 1939 version of “The Wizard of Oz," left the Emerald City, she found herself past the yellow brick road of Hollywood and behind the gates of the Rockhaven Sanitarium in Glendale. Located on Honolulu Avenue, the sanitarium stands as a treasured site of historic Glendale, an intimate and aging symbol of a time when the valley was dispersed with resting and recovery homes due to its clean air quality. Patricia Traviss, the granddaughter of Rockhaven's founder, Agnes Mary Richards, sold the site in 2001 to the Ararat Home of Los Angeles, Inc., which provides nursing homes and care for elderly Armenians in Southern California.

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.

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 twin sisters Ani and Armineh Mikaelian were hired at Clark Magnet High School four years ago as math-teaching pair, colleagues had such a hard time distinguishing them, the two teachers were referred to by their classroom locations. “The biggest difficulty for the office staff is both first names start with an ‘a’ — Ani and Armineh,” said Barbara Melone, secretary to Clark Magnet Principal Doug Dall. “Bless the principal, he had one in this building and one in the other building.

To the handful of residents who thought they'd be able to keep artificial turf they installed in their front yards prior to the city solidifying its ban on fake grass last summer - think again. Some residents who installed the turf before August, when the City Council took a hard line against allowing the stuff in front yards, had hoped that they'd be grandfathered in under the ban. But city officials on Tuesday confirmed that any existing violators would have to restore their properties to comply with the law. The clarification came almost two months after Glendale began sending notices of violation to residents with faux turf in their front yards.

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.

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.
