Bryan Ortega spent his early years on Walnut Drive in a house that is no longer there. His family's home gave way to the Glendale (2) Freeway in the early 1960s, but before they moved, he and his older siblings made the surrounding hills their playground. “The hills were our backyard. We had a blast growing up in the canyon,” Ortega wrote in a recent series of emails. “My father had his own business and one time brought home long poles and canvas tarps.

A cutout of Clint Eastwood dressed as a cowboy that began as a mysterious art piece looking out over Glendale's hillsides is one step closer to becoming official property of the city. After the actor's likeness was destroyed three times, the artist behind the figure that has sparked interest among hikers in the hills and commuters along the Glendale (2) Freeway decided it might be best if he find a new home for the cutout.

City officials offered to give the cutout an official home after a columnist for the Los Angeles Times wrote about multiple acts of vandalism it sustained, and Thursday, the Arts & Culture Commission recommended that the City Council approve making it a city art piece.

Glendale Unified has given final approval to the design of a new aquatic center at Glendale High School that features a pool three times the size of the current facility and that will accommodate hundreds of visitors. The Glendale Unified school board approved the design last week, with plans to break ground on the $11-million project in about a year. At 54 meters by 25 yards, the new pool will accommodate teams from all three of the district's main high schools and allow for three water polo practices to occur at once, or two swim meets at the same time.
