When swing revivalists Big Bad Voodoo Daddy formed in 1993, they were a severe anomaly, one that seemed destined to be overshadowed by the Nirvanas, Tupacs and Whitney Houstons who ruled the pop charts. Twenty years later, the brassy septet has outlived them and their appearance Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Alex Theater is going to be a very special triple-threat event . "We've kept the band together all these years and we have not stopped playing, been on the road the whole time," trumpeter and Glendale native Glen Marhevka said recently.

GLENDALE - It only took one mistake by the Glendale High girls' soccer defense to turn the tide in its season-ending rivalry game against visiting Hoover on Thursday evening. The opening 30 seconds of the second half proved pivotal for the teams, as Hoover senior midfielder and team captain Talin Kojababian intercepted a pass on the back line and rocketed a shot into the upper corner of the goal for the only score in the Tornadoes' 1-0 win over the Nitros in the squads' Pacific League and season finale.

When boxer Art “Lionheart” Hovhannisyan walked into the Glendale Fighting Club on Monday morning, his eyes popped wide open, his usual grin widened and he shook his head. The Brand Boulevard corner gym was packed with reporters and cameras clicking and shooting away. They were all there for an open workout and press conference with Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who's fast become a superstar with big-time endorsements, magazine covers, movie roles and a laundry list of busted arms left behind during her championship run. Media attention has grown over the years at the GFC thanks in most part to Rousey.

BURBANK - As the current junior class president at Glendale High, it's important for Shushanik Gabrielyan to stay on top of matters involving the student council, academics and extra-curricular activities.

As Glendale school officials continue to review a plan to offer the district's popular dual-language immersion classes through the 12th grade , they announced this week which high schools would offer the foreign-language courses. At the elementary level, the dual-immersion program has students spend at least half the instructional day speaking and learning in a language other than English. At the high-school level, students would continue studying their chosen language with an intensive class every day. According to the proposal, Hoover High School would offer German, French, Italian and Armenian classes and would offer a Spanish class for students currently enrolled at Franklin and Edison elementary schools.

GLENDALE - Despite being without two of its starters because of injury, the Glendale High boys' basketball team looked to persevere. Glendale found itself pitted against Arcadia for the third time in less than two months with the Nitros having won the first two meetings. Unfortunately for Glendale, it couldn't complete the series sweep as it suffered a 71-69 Pacific League home defeat Wednesday. Glendale's Eddie Uluchyan drove to the basket for a game-tying layup, but the shot hit the bottom of the rim just before the buzzer sounded.
