The local Armenian community braced against a public rush to judgment after authorities on Wednesday announced a major crackdown on Armenian organized crime that included 74 people arrested on fraud and racketeering charges. The federal indictments, unveiled at Glendale police headquarters Wednesday, alleged that members of the gang Armenian Power engaged in a range of white collar crimes to defraud the public of $20 million. In a city where people of Armenian descent make up roughly 40% of the population, news of the arrests raised fears of what seems to be the inevitable: a rush by a vocal few to reinforce stereotypes.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) increased pressure on the Environmental Protection Agency Wednesday to issue a long-awaited final report on the health impact of water tainted with chromium 6 on humans, calling the slow progress “unconscionable.” In his letter to U.S. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, the congressman whose district has a long-running problem with chromium 6 contamination of underground water said the agency “must stop wasting time...

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would set a deadline for establishing a new federal cap on chromium 6 contamination in drinking water. The move comes two weeks after the congressman called on the Environmental Protection Agency to release a long-awaited final report on the health impact of water tainted with chromium 6 on humans. Those findings - which would be key for setting new maximum contamination levels - were postponed so the agency could also finish studying the effects of inhaling hexavalent chromium, and then release both reports at the same time.

The California Department of Public Health has set a draft limit for a water contaminant known as chromium 6 at 10 parts per billion, significantly lower than the current cap of 50 parts per billion for total chromium in drinking water. The state agency used more than a decade of research done by the city of Glendale to set the limit, which once its finalized will impact water providers statewide. “California is the first and only state in the nation to establish a maximum contaminant level specifically for chromium-6 in drinking water,” Ron Chapman, the department's director and public health officer said in a statement.

Elannah Rose Sheklow's parents thought they were doing everything right. They had family dinners. They checked their daughter's homework nightly. They knew her friends. They talked to her about boys, drugs and school. But at 16 when Sheklow confessed she was smoking heroin and had been using other drugs as well for three years, the La Crescenta family's “idyllic life was shattered,” mother Hannah Spring Sheklow said. “I kept wracking my brain,” she told a crowd of more than 100 people who had come to the La Crescenta Library to hear her daughter's story Monday night.

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.

For the first time in more than three years, the Glendale Fire Department is looking to hire. Fire officials plan to start accepting applications in August in an effort to hire 15 new firefighters who meet department qualifications, have a good work ethic and are willing to provide community service, Battalion Chief Tom Propst said. "There is a lot of competition out there and a lot of interest," he said. The push to hire new firefighters comes after a protracted recession, citywide budget cuts and operational changes in the Fire Department that kept hiring at a standstill despite ongoing retirements.

Tom in Glendale wrote recently to ask about plurals of names ending in S. "How do you pluralize a name like Ross?" he asked. "It has to be Rosses, right? I just saw Ross' as the plural, as in 'the Ross' moved to Glendale last year.' That can't be right." Tom made my job easy this week. He nailed it. One Ross, two Rosses. Simple as that. So why doesn't everyone find it so easy? That's a question I've been asking myself for years. And the best answer I've come up with is that the English language has a debilitating S addiction.

The characteristic that renders Silvana Ambar so impressive as a curator is her ability to attract internationally known artists who are either trained in the finest art academies in the world, or who have demonstrated such self-taught skill that they are credible to "show" with the pantheon of international artists whose work she has assembled. Silvana Gallery is currently showing a group exhibition of traditional paintings and sculpture of great interest internationally, as well as a small collection of California plein-air paintings.

Walgreens is looking to come to Glendale, part of a plan that would include the opening of the city's third Trader Joe's market. The two companies have both applied for off-site liquor sales licenses with the city. Representatives from Walgreens and Trader Joe's presented plans for putting both stores in a currently unoccupied property at 101 E. Glenoaks Ave. at a city hearing last week. The 25,560 square-foot building, located at the intersection of Glenoaks and Brand Boulevard, would be split in two to accommodate the two businesses, according to city documents.
