GLENDALE - Pandemonium erupted roughly two hours after the Glendale High boys' basketball team tipped off its latest Pacific League matchup with visiting Muir. The jubilation resulted from four overtimes and a range of emotions that saw the Nitros make clutch shot after clutch shot before finally coming out victorious, 80-77, Friday evening at Glendale High School. Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress has seen much in his tenure, but admitted his latest game brought on a first. “I have never been in a four-overtime game,” said Snodgress after the 48-minute affair.

Lilit Mkrtchian's favorite part of watching the Tournament of Roses Parade every year is spotting the Glendale float and pointing out the parts she helped decorate. Come this New Year's Day, she will be able to boast about the uva grass, a cream-colored tropical plant, and other materials she glued on the star of this year's float: Meatball the bear. PHOTOS: Glendale Rose Parade float volunteers in full swing The 35-foot-long craft's design, which features animals living in Glendale's hillsides, was inspired by Meatball, the famous black bear that was caught in foothill neighborhoods three times last year before being captured by state wildlife officials and transported to an animal sanctuary in San Diego County.

Local students channeled their inner Tiger Woods on Friday at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in a competition to hit a hole-in-one in record time. The annual “Invention Challenge” called on middle and high school students, as well as JPL employees, to build a contraption that would hit a golf ball into a hole located about 5 feet away. The teams used materials such as vacuum-cleaner extensions, springs, mouse traps and angled pipes that dropped the ball with a “plop” into the hole.  They used sliders, pendulums and even compressed air to send the ball flying.

The number of students dropping out of Glendale Unified high schools has declined significantly during the past four years, from 120 during the 2009-10 school year to 35 last year, according to a new report. However, the number of graduates meeting requirements to enter the University of California and California State University systems is in need of some improvement, officials said. Districtwide, the percentage of students meeting UC/CSU requirements climbed only 1%, edging up to 48.2%, according to a report presented to the Glendale Unified School Board Tuesday.
