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.

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.

Known for its flickering neon sign that animates a hammer striking a shoe heel, Zinke's Shoe Repair will soon be leaving Glendale for Pasadena after more than 65 years in business. The name Zinke's has been in use since 1919, but the store's location at 119 W. California Ave. was built in 1941. The distinctive sign went up in the 1950s, said Mike Ramirez, who started working at Zinke's 42 years ago and eventually took over ownership. He said April 26 would likely be the last day the business would be open.

Ryan Carter LA CRESCENTA -- Andrew Adelman says he enjoys the small-town feel of La Crescenta. He loves the fact that the unincorporated community is so close to metropolitan areas, and yet it keeps its Mayberry U.S.A. flavor, he said. But the flavor of the town he will now help represent won't stop him from trying to enhance the image and prestige of the unincorporated foothill area of 21,000 people, he said in an interview. And it hasn't prevented him from musing on the idea of incorporation.

A 535-unit live-work apartment complex that is being proposed for an entire downtown city block could become the largest residential development project Glendale has seen since a development boom took hold in the city. The City Council is set to review the project on Oct. 8. The developer, Amidi Group, submitted plans with the city last month, but the company has yet to seal the deal with Citibank, which owns the 3.18-acre lot bounded by Central and Lexington avenues and Milford and Orange streets.

In a novel and potentially precedent-setting legal case, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge in Glendale ordered Dish Network to pay for the removal of three satellite dishes from an apartment building whose owner says were ordered by tenants without his approval, but who have since moved out. Christopher Spencer was awarded $850 in small claims court for the cost of removing the equipment from his apartment building in Burbank and $110 for...

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.

Turns out the state law that forced Glendale to hold onto dozens of vintage arcade machines doesn't apply to the games at all, paving the way for an upcoming auction of the machines last valued at a total of roughly $100,000. More than 50 games, which have been collecting dust in storage for roughly three years are to be appraised by a specialist and then sold at auction, according to a City Council decision made this week at a City Hall meeting. The council had to decide what to do with the arcade machines, including two Ms. Pac-Mans and a Galaga game, after state Department of Finance officials said they didn't care about them.

Sid Gordon's mother, Rosaline, worked at Charles B. Behrens Memorial Hospital when he was young. Now he has become curious about the hospital, which was the precursor to Verdugo Hills Hospital. "My mother was a nurse and she always talked about work, but I was a kid then and didn't pay attention," said Gordon, who was a student at Clark Junior High School at the time. "She worked there after we came to California in 1960," he said. "We lived in La Crescenta, and she drove down to the hospital every day. My sister Randi was born there in 1962."
