La Crescenta Elementary School students play in the mud. This is not by choice but due to chronic problems with maintaining the small grassy area on the school?s mostly asphalt playground. According to members of the La Crescenta Elementary School Foundation, who met in the school library Wednesday evening, the 6,500-square-foot area was first planted with grass about six years ago and is used not only for play but for physical education programs for both primary and upper grades.

Former Los Angeles Lakers star A.C. Green spent Thursday morning in Glendale reflecting on the role of mankind and the importance of being selfless. “There's something bigger than us,” he told a room of about 300 people. “Yeah, bigger than me, at 6-foot-9.” Community members gathered at the Civic Auditorium to listen to Green and local leaders talk about religion and the role of a spiritual life at the 49th Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. “We are here to remember … the life that we have, the life that we lead, we lead not for ourselves, but a greater purpose and cause,” said Green, who spent 16 seasons in the NBA, gaining the nickname Iron Man after playing 1,192 consecutive games.

With the new landscaping regulations adopted Tuesday by the City Council, Glendale may look like a desert before long. And, ironically, that may be the best way to go green. For years, the city has required that residents’ front and side yards be fully landscaped with grass, gardens, trees, shrubs and other plant life — in short, things that require water on a regular basis. As the state forecasts severe cutbacks in water imports this summer, however, the council passed a new rule that up to 49% of front yard landscaping can consist of rocks, mulch, bark and other materials that survive out in the sun. Anyone who has visited a big city in the desert — Santa Fe, for example — can vouch that it’s possible to create beautiful landscaping with brown the predominant color.

Lolita Harper Calvin Klein and Donna Karan better watch out because there are two new fashion divas in town. Erin and Lauren Loadvine, donned in Loadvine originals, turned plenty of heads while marching in the Montrose Shopping Park St. Patrick's Day Children's Parade on Saturday. Wearing green from head to toe, the sister duo took home a $20 gift certificate for being the "greenest" marchers. "We like the holiday because we're very Irish," said Erin, 10, who has kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland.

Creating a CD of chamber music was a short and sweet experience for three musicians who came together from across the globe. Glendale Community College Music Department Chair Peter Green and two fellow musicians created the CD titled “Souvenirs.” It’s the first CD for Green, who has been at Glendale Community College for eight years and teaches group and individual classes in piano. “I came up with the name because one of the pieces is titled that, and it was also a souvenir or a remembrance of our time together to record the CD,” Green said.

I have a great deal of respect for police officers in general, but that respect does not carry over to Police Chief Robert K. Bowman of the very small town of Welch, W. Va. It is important to know that Welch is such a small town that most of the people know each other. This is the story of Billy Snead, who was trying to save his friend's life in June of last year. Snead's friend Claude Green Jr. had a heart attack on a West Virginia roadside when Bowman arrived. Snead was using CPR to attempt to save his friend.

Claudia Peschiutta LINCOLN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -- Principal Barbara Mikolasko has James Rogan to thank for turning her brown locks florescent green. The congressman challenged elementary schools in his district, which includes Glendale, to read 2,000 books by Presidents Day and promised to present the campus with the most books read with a flag from the U.S. Capitol. Mikolasko upped the ante by telling her students she would dye her hair green if they surpassed Rogan's goal by 1,000 books.

Claudia Peschiutta WHAT'S IN A NAME? This time around, the talk about Steven Spielberg had nothing to do with projects or Oscar nominations or box office totals. At the Glendale Unified School District's 10th annual High School Scholastic Bowl Monday night, only the director's name mattered. Some confusion about the spelling of "Steven" cast doubt on the Crescenta Valley High School team's answer to the question: "Who directed "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "E.T.

Fiddleneck, storksbill, blue-eyed grass, paintbrush, monkey flower -- just a few of the 35 identified wildflowers you would have seen if you had walked with me the other morning in Malibu Creek State Park. There were at least a dozen other little beauties that escaped my identification capability. And this has been a relatively poor wildflower spring because of the long rainfall hiatus since the February rains. Even so, a profusion of bush poppies fill in burned-over areas and a light blue frosting is present on many other hillsides where Ceanothus (mountain lilac)

Re: Scott Peer's March 19 letter to the editor calling for transition to clean power. As a founding member of the Glendale Coalition for Better Government, our group has never discussed fossil fuels versus green energy. Our group was founded because we believe the City Council violates Prop. 26 requirements of voter approval of electric rate increases plus the violation of the city charter in the transfer of millions of dollars from the GWP to the General Fund for nonutility usage. The electrical and water rate increases have nothing to do with green fuel or fossil fuels, but the need for the city to pay for the unfunded and unsustainable salaries and pensions of our city union workforce.

Dozens of seniors filled City Council chambers Tuesday to oppose a $29.9-million affordable housing project for creative industry workers planned for downtown Glendale, but the showing wasn't enough to prevent approval of the final design and a city housing loan for the so-called “Glendale Arts Colony.” The project design was approved by a 3-2 vote from the City Council, while a roughly $6-million city housing loan got the green light on...

After nearly two years of uncertainty about the future of the open space at the Americana at Brand, the City Council this week unanimously approved taking over the popular park as a city property. The uncertainty was tied to the dissolution of redevelopment last year. State lawmakers ended the program - designed to improve blighted areas through the use of property taxes - in an effort to close a multibillion-dollar budget gap in Sacramento. In addition to receiving money, Glendale's now defunct Redevelopment Agency also owned property, such as the space at the Americana at Brand, known as the Green.

A business on San Fernando Road that installed solar panels will receive about $1.1 million from the city over five years to make good on a contract that was signed back in 2011, the City Council decided Tuesday. Chase Glendale Green Services LLC had signed the contract with the city through its solar panel incentive program in October 2011 that promised the company about $225,000 a year after it installed a 351-kilowatt-per-hour solar panel system at its 4680 San Fernando Road facility.

For Nazik Parazyan, taking the test to become a citizen in 2010 was a breeze because she had already lived in Glendale for 11 years. It takes about five years to apply for citizenship after getting a green card, but Parazyan couldn't get one. She came to the United States seeking asylum, like many others immigrating to Glendale from Armenia in the 1990s. Although her status as someone fleeing from fear of persecution was approved within four months, it would be nearly a decade before her green-card application was approved.

It's been 17 years and the requests for bells keep coming. They come packaged with sad tales about young children who have died. The emotional pleas always tug at the heart of Reg Green, who in 1996 installed a three-tiered tower covered in bells to memorialize his 7-year-old son, who was killed by bandits during a family vacation in Italy two years prior. Green would like to add more bells to the 18-foot-tower to comfort the families who have felt the deep pain he also has endured, but there isn't room for any more.

The exterior of the building where a Bloomingdale's store is being built is covered with a green mesh fabric to prevent dust and debris from leaving the construction area and falling onto pedestrians and passing vehicles, according to Shoshana Puccia, senior marketing manager for the Galleria. The department store, which is slated for an autumn opening, is moving into the Galleria in the former Mervyn's site.

With the groundbreaking of Glendale Unified's new aquatic center still a year away, school officials have hired a firm to explore adding renewable energy sources to the pool's design to save on future operating costs. The outdoor pool will be built at Glendale High School, but will serve the entire district. The $9.4 million project is still in the design phase. School officials have estimated the pool will cost Glendale Unified $200,000 to $300,000 per year to heat, maintain pumps and purchase chemicals.
