Three Latino students who sued the Glendale Police Department alleging racial profiling have settled for $2,500, according to court documents released this week. Negotiations continue with the Glendale Unified School District, which is a co-defendant in the case, according to court records. Jose Muro, Andres Muro and Francisco Martinez are plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which was filed by the ACLU of Southern California in October 2011, claiming they were detained and searched during lunch at Hoover High School on Sept.

The city of Glendale may have found a way to resolve a development quandary left by the dissolution of its redevelopment agency. Resolving that quandary will allow the mixed-use Laemmle Lofts development to move forward, city officials said. The project originally was intended to rely upon redevelopment funds. But because the state dissolved all redevelopment agencies, that funding now is problematic. The proposed project, which was approved by the city in November 2011, would include a five-screen Laemmle theater, 42 residential units and 6,000 square feet of commercial space and a subterranean parking structure.

Re: “ The heat of burning Sagebrush ,” Stop the Presses, Oct. 19. What the column needs is some of the history behind the current Sagebrush controversy. In or about 1888, it is my understanding that the Glendale and Pasadena school districts agreed upon a boundary line between their respective districts. The line they established is the one that is currently the boundary line between the Glendale and La Cañada Flintridge school districts. Until the 1960s, the communities of La Cañada and Flintridge, which were then unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, were served by the Pasadena Unified School District.

Students throughout the Glendale Unified School District pledged this week to live a drug-free life as part of Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated each October at every Glendale public school. The national campaign dates back to the death of Kiki Camarena, an agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration who was kidnapped and murdered in Mexico City in 1985 while he was investigating a major cocaine and marijuana dealer.

A public safety instructor pleaded not guilty Monday to formal accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Hoover High School student. More than a dozen family members and students appeared in a Glendale courtroom to support Delvon Jackson, 38, of Carson as he faced a total of four felony counts stemming from the alleged conduct. They stood up during Jackson's arraignment to show their support after his attorney, Winston McKesson, asked them to do so. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Frederick Rotenberg reduced Jackson's bail from $1 million to $400,000 after reviewing the amount originally set by a bail hearing officer last week.

The red-tagged Stengel Field Stadium is set to face the wrecking ball after a City Council vote this week in favor of demolishing the 64-year-old building. The plan is to demolish the decrepit stadium and install temporary aluminum bleachers to seat 1,000 people until the Glendale Unified School District can raise enough money to build a new facility. Last month, the city handed over maintenance of the green space at Stengel Field , which is often used by baseball teams from Crescenta Valley High School and Glendale Community College, to the school district, but the city still has authority over the stadium.
