There was a time, not long ago, that the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team was not only one of the best within the San Gabriel Valley, but one of the stronger programs in all of Southern California. That distinction was cultivated on the back of Mission League championships, 20-win seasons and victories versus strong teams, both locally and throughout the Southland. “When I came here, I was definitely aware of the rich tradition at Flintridge Sacred Heart,” Tologs second-year Coach Ernest Banaag said.

A Glendale man is suing the city and several police officers, alleging he suffers frequent headaches after being slammed to the ground during his arrest at a social gathering in March. Pierre Moradian, 20, claims he was wrongfully arrested and assaulted on March 2 after he asked Glendale police officers why they were detaining his friends who had been smoking outside a gathering at a local home, according to his lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. "It's ridiculous," his attorney Mary Der-Parseghian said.

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.

Some people love it when you correct their grammar. Those people are easy to identify. They're the folks who say, “Yes, please correct my grammar. I love that.” Pretty much everyone else alive - or who has ever lived - hates it. And because the latter group outweighs the former by something like 100 to 0, it's just a bad idea to point out people's language mistakes. Of course, there are exceptions. Unsolicited corrections can be fine, coming from teachers or parents, or anyone looking for an excuse to prove his mettle in a prison yard.

Glendale played a starring role in the 1945 movie "Mildred Pierce," the story of a single mother who opens a restaurant right here in the heart of Glendale. The movie was based on a book by the same name written by James M. 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.

The story behind Kenneth Village, the cluster of shops on Kenneth Road between Sonora and Grandview avenues in northwest Glendale, goes back to a time before those streets even existed. It was a time when it was open country, west of the little village of Casa Verdugo, and totally separate from another settlement to the southeast called Glendale. Vineyards, citrus orchards and commercial gardens covered most of the land. The most dominant man-made feature was a small cemetery, called Grand View, which opened in the mid-1880s, and it was one of the few such places around.

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.

When Lisa Janacua, an office manager and assistant music librarian for Walt Disney Pictures in Burbank, volunteered for the California Army National Guard in 2003, she knew Iraq might be in her future. Janacua, the daughter of a Marine, was bitten by an urge to serve, but she would have preferred to do so on U.S. soil. "Most of us don't want to go," she said. Janacua's three daughters — who range in age from 12 to 18 — didn't want their mother to leave their Hermosa Avenue home in Montrose for the place they know only as a distant land of improvised explosive devices.
