GLENDALE — Authorities are mulling whether to press charges against an 18-year-old man arrested during the weekend on suspicion of pointing a high-power laser at a police helicopter and momentarily blinding its two pilots. Mher Urfalyan was arrested at 6:35 p.m. Saturday after he allegedly pointed the laser at the two helicopter pilots, one each from Burbank and Glendale police departments, who were on regular patrol, Glendale Police Sgt.

You have the capacity to earn 'As.'” Roberts was one of nine black students who in September 1957 began attending Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., integrating a formerly all-white campus in a community where segregation was deeply entrenched.
