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.

Gretchen Hoffman LA CRESCENTA -- Almost two years ago, Sharon Wilson's estranged husband gouged the floors, punched holes in the walls and piled flammable material on all the vents of their La Crescenta home. Two days later, he came back, doused everything with gasoline and burned the house to the ground. Patrick Wilson was convicted of aggravated arson and sentenced to five years in jail, but his wife -- their divorce isn't final -- has been told he could be out of jail as early as April.

GLENDALE — Three Glendale residents, along with five other people, were ordered to pay $3 million in penalties and restitution as part of a settlement that alleged their city-based company charged thousands of customers for shoddy and overpriced home repair work, officials announced Monday. Avetik Avo Gyandzhyan, 38, his wife, Lilit Lusparyan, 28, and Estine Akopyan, 28, worked for the Glendale-based parent company, SRVS Charge Inc., and its affiliated companies, which overcharged about 6,000 customers each year for poor-quality home repair since 1989, according to the state attorney general’s office.

Paul and Arlene Meadows Regarding your question in Thursday's edition of the Glendale News-Press, the fence ordinance should be repealed. One of our cherished American dreams is to own a little home with a white picket fence -- but apparently in Glendale this can only happen if you comply with the narrow permission of city government. Of the 90-some people who voiced their opinions Tuesday at the City Council meeting, only one spoke in favor of the ordinance, and his arguments for keeping the ordinance were not compelling.

With a vacancy of 21 sworn officers, the Glendale Police Department has led an exhaustive search to find qualified candidates, but hiring them has not been easy. While the department has received thousands of applications from candidates looking to become officers, many of them don't move on because they can't pass an extensive background check. “It's very difficult to go through the process,” police Capt. Michael Rock said. Another hurdle in the department's recruitment efforts is that other law enforcement agencies are also hiring, which has diminished the pool of qualified candidates.

Where I work, one of the most common questions editors ask each other is whether some term — say soymilk or healthcare — should be written as one word or two. And the responses we get and give might surprise you. Though occasionally one of us will answer, "I just looked that up today! Soymilk is one word," more often, someone will yell out, "Let me check. " Knowing whether a term is one word, two words, or hyphenated would be the hardest part of an editor's job were it not for one thing: We're not supposed to know.

As the mother of two children enrolled in a dual-language program and as an expert in bilingualism and bilingual education, I can assure you that English as a second language, or ESL, programs, in their goals, structure and implementation, are a far cry from immersion/dual-language programs (Dual immersion sounds a lot like ESL,” Jan. 27). First, the expectations of each program are different. In ESL programs, no support or value is given to the child’s primary language, and the goal is that the child learns English as quickly as possible (often at the expense of the primary language)

Since former Glendale Mayor Larry Zarian passed away about a month ago, his sons have gotten to know him in a different light. “We've been introduced to him all over again,” said his son, Lawrence Zarian, at the a “Celebration of Life” event that took place at the Alex Theatre Monday in honor of his father. After Zarian died of blood cancer on Oct. 13, many have told his sons about the important role Zarian played in their lives. “The thing that my brothers and I have been saying is that we're grieving the loss of our father, but the community is grieving the loss of one of their strongest voices,” Lawrence Zarian said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — When a woman drove her car through the front of Movses Golden Pastry five years ago, owner Armen Nazarian thought he could protect his store by installing steel barriers in front of the property. He was wrong. Early Tuesday, police said, a Burbank woman in the parking lot slammed on the gas pedal of her white Toyota 4Runner and barreled through the Glenoaks Boulevard corner bakery. She evaded a steel barrier and smashed through a storefront window, refrigerators, tables and chairs.

LA CRESCENTA ? Fire officials Thursday announced plans for an Aug. 1 evacuation drill for residents in the Briggs Terrace area of La Crescenta in response to a spate of fires in the Angeles National Forest. The drill and proceeding public fire safety meeting were part of a report to the Crescenta Valley Town Council Thursday night in which officials said years of drought and dry vegetation, combined with numerous fires in the surrounding mountains, have brought fire season to the forefront early this summer.
