Cain in 1941. “Cain portrayed Glendale as the epitome of the working-class aspirations and disappointments in Depression-era California,” said Arlene Vidor, past president of the Glendale Historical Society, who wrote an article on the movie for the society's Summer 2010 newsletter.

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.

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.
