The Glendale News-Press collected one first-place and three second-place awards Saturday in the California Newspaper Publishers Assn.'s annual Better Newspaper Contest. The awards, presented in San Jose during a meeting of the nonprofit trade association, were among 16 collected on behalf of Times Community North by Editor Dan Evans. Former staff writer Melanie Hicken captured first place for her 2011 coverage of local government. Hicken reported on a tie between renovations at then-City Councilman John Drayman's condominium and Advanced Development & Investment, Inc. , at a time when the firm was alleged to have bilked the city out of millions of tax dollars.

Curt Noland, who grew up in La Crescenta and was featured on a Los Angeles TV station for the novelty of delivering the Glendale News-Press on horseback, has died. He was 55. Noland died Jan. 17 at his Carlsbad home after a battle with esophageal cancer. The son of Al and Diane Noland, longtime La Crescenta residents, he attended Valley View School and Clark Junior High School. He delivered the News-Press on horseback in the late 1960s because he said it was hard to pedal his bike up the steep streets of his neighborhood.

In the wake of the discussions by the Community Advisory Boards for the Burbank Leader and Glendale News-Press, I want to announce a number of adjustments and tweaks to our offerings and features. Not all of the suggestions of the two boards have been directly implemented as yet, but I'm happy to report a number of things have already occurred or are about to go live. In particular, the News-Press board asked that the paper look to hiring reporters who are already part of the Glendale community.

Bowling alleys have been around in Glendale for many years. Some, such as Jewel City Bowl and the Montrose Bowl, are still here; others, such as the alley in Jensen's Palace Grand Shops on Brand Boulevard and the Glen Bowl on Colorado Boulevard, disappeared when the buildings were demolished or dramatically altered. One of the first alleys arrived in 1923, when the Glendale Recreation Center and Club opened in Jensen's with a tournament: Caswell's Gateway team versus Jensen Drugs, “an all-local match that will surprise you as to the class of bowlers that Glendale can produce,” as noted in an ad in the Glendale Evening News, March 1923.

Good morning readers! Today is Monday, April 7. Rub the weekend out of your eyes, and check out these headlines around the area:  A 66-year-old man died Thursday after receiving a massage at a newly opened spa in Glendale, police said. The man was reportedly lying on his back while getting the massage at about 10:40 p.m. at the spa in the 500 block of East Broadway when he suddenly coughed and became unresponsive, Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee...

Re: the photo with “'Tartuffe' stays fresh,” March 22 : How disgusting! Where are the moral values of the Glendale News-Press after what I saw in the Marquee section? There it was in color, a picture of a man and woman, featured in A Noise Within stage play, posed in a sexual intercourse position! I couldn't believe it! This is what our decaying American society has come to in today's liberal, “social justice” world. Anything goes! Having crossed the line of decency, the News-Press owes a public apology to its readers.

One day in late March 2009 I sat with my wife, Donna, at Club Tee Gee in Atwater Village, having a quiet drink. It was a Tuesday afternoon, my birthday, and the waning days of a fortunately brief spat of unemployment for the two of us. April 1 (truly!) marked my first day in the editor's chair of Times Community News. The little chain at the time claimed four newspapers: the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader, La Cañada Valley Sun and Crescenta Valley Sun. It also had an essentially unusable website, no social media, and a print design stuck in 1982.

Re: “ Pickleball picks up fans,” Weekend Edition, March 15 and 16 . Sounds great. So today, pickleball can be played by not only Glendale members, but Los Feliz YMCA members on the roof of the Glendale YMCA. Now tomorrow, will the Glendale News-Press start being included with Los Feliz and Silver Lake residents'/Glendale denizens' Los Angeles Times' subscriptions? I would obviously hope so myself. By the way, there is also a boxing, etc. exercise room in the Glendale YMCA, located adjacent to the main gym itself.

Top o' the morning, readers. Today is Monday, March 17, St. Patrick's Day. Remember to wear your green, and to avoid eating or drinking anything not naturally that color. Celebrate the day, but celebrate responsibily, as the local police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers.  In the meantime, catch up on your weekend news with these headlines:  The March 31 deadline to sign up for insurance under Covered California is fast approaching , and for one branch of case workers, it's crunch time to help people get signed up. Glendale News-Press Two Glendale Unified principals, each with more than three decades as educators , will retire at the end of the school year, officials announced this week.

A bit less than a month ago, about two dozen people squeezed into a conference room at the Glendale YWCA, all there to share their feelings about the Glendale News-Press. The Wednesday evening meeting marked the inaugural of the paper's Community Advisory Board, something I hope to make a tradition for both the News-Press and the Burbank Leader. (As I write this, I am finalizing the time, date and venue for the Leader's community board, tentatively slated for later this month.) The purpose is simple: In order to serve its communities, the paper and its editor need to know what readers care about and couldn't care less about; what they like about our coverage and what makes them cringe, blanch or yawn.

Good morning readers. Today is Monday, March 2. As you shake off the weekend and settle back into work, check out these headlines from around the area:  The visiting Golden Knights trailed for the better part of 2 1/2 quarters versus Foothill Blvd. -rival La Cañada in a city showdown that didn't just promise the winner bragging rights, but also a berth in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship. Glendale News-Press A life insurance agent testified that she spoke to a 34-year-old Glendale man - who is accused of killing his estranged boyfriend - about the couple's policies the day before he was found dead.
