I personally think that it's quite a generous attitude on the part of some people to help the city occupiers, the poor and disposed, to make a social statement on our society. The people with bucks - and that could mean me someday - should extend themselves and help the helpless. Granted, there are some Occupy demonstrators who are doing their thing - having a good time without any care for the actual cause - but for the ones who do care about their fellow man, I think it's a rewarding, strong approach to creating social good.

Founded in 1946, the group serves as a community where artists gather not only to develop and exhibit their work, but also to forge relationships with other artists. “The Verdugo Hills Art Association has many talented fine artists and we always enjoy and learn from each other,” commented Frank de Lucia, president of the organization. At the time of its inception, the association included visual arts, drama, writing, music and dance.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Hundreds of demonstrators, many with friends and family hunkered down in the aftermath of Iran’s controversial June 12 presidential election, spilled onto Glenoaks Boulevard and Pacific Avenue on Monday evening chanting pro-democracy slogans amid the incessant blare of car horns. Wearing green T-shirts and wristbands, demonstrators packed all four corners of the busy intersection Monday as part of an ad hoc gathering of mostly Persian, Iranian and Armenian-Iranian residents who have increasingly harnessed the organizing power of online sites Facebook and Twitter to, as 20-year-old Artin Sukiassian said, “show the world that we back them, no matter what.

The Glendale Police Department began its preparations for the new millennium at the start of the 1960s when it opened its new station on Wilson Avenue. The building, which cost $1.1 million, was opened in October 1960. The facility was designed to serve the growing department through 2010. With work already underway on a new station, it didn't quite make it. In 1960, the department called its change in location "Operation Big Move" and it used prisoners to transport cartons of equipment.

The editorial writers at the Glendale News-Press have a very strange understanding of the history and meaning of civil disobedience. According to the Glendale News-Press' April 25 editorial, civil disobedience is an "organic" act, "fueled by the intensity of a moment." Tell that to Henry David Thoreau, who knew full well he would be taken to jail for refusing to pay his tax. Or to the brave African-Americans who sat down at a "whites-only" lunch counter.

Thousands of Armenians chanted outside the Turkish Consulate in Los Angeles Wednesday to commemorate the massacre of some 1.5 million of their ancestors 98 years ago -- a genocide that has yet to be officially recognized by the U.S. Chanting “We will fight, we will fight, until the end!” in Armenian, the large crowd decried decades of denial by modern day Turkey that a genocide occurred during the time of the Ottoman Empire. PHOTOS: Armenians protest at Turkish Consulate to end genocide denial Among them was Glendale resident Armen Aroutiounian, 19, who called it a “pathetic” political game that after 98 years, the United States and Turkish governments refuse to recognize the genocide.

Law enforcement officials on Thursday demonstrated the proper way to strap a child into a safety seat for parents who attended a seminar at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. The seminar was organized to address a new California law that went into effect this year that increased the age children must be restrained in a safety or booster seat - from 6 to 8 years old, or until they reach 4 feet 9 inches tall. The law was revised because children face greater risk riding in the front passenger seat, according to the California Highway patrol.

BURBANK - What was supposed to be a showcase of tennis products and services mixed in with a little instruction proved to be much more at Saturday's Cecil Mamiit demonstration day at the Burbank Tennis Center. The formerly-ranked tennis pro and current South Pasadena resident didn't hesitate in getting hands-on with participants in games and drills and even extended to a few clinic-goers the opportunity to challenge him in doubles play, while offering advice and taking photos well past his 10 a.m.-1 p.m. time slot.

More than 1,000 Occupy the Rose Parade protesters peacefully marched down Colorado Boulevard at the tail of the Rose Parade, carrying posters and a float to display their message of economic inequality. The demonstration was part protest, part street theater, complete with costumed characters portraying billionaires, a 200-foot-long banner of the U.S. Constitution and a giant human float, “Occupy Octopus,” that was intended to represent Wall Street's hold on the United States.
