A report of a man with a rifle near the Foothill Athletic Club on Sunday may have been the result of a prank call, police said. Someone called police about 12:25 a.m. to report seeing a man dressed in camouflage headed into a hillside with a gun near the gym on the 3900 block of Lowell Avenue, Glendale police said. Gym members denied reporting or seeing the man, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. A Los Angeles Police Department helicopter searched the hillside and made announcements over its public address system urging the man to come out, but the air crew was unable to find him. Police tried calling the reporting party, but were unable reach them, Lorenz said.

Karen S. Kim MONTROSE -- Montrose residents and business owners are going to have to find a new place to "feel the burn" next month, as 24 Hour Fitness on Honolulu Avenue is closing March 31.

"I'm very disappointed that they decided to close the facility," Flagg said. "I think it was an important asset to the area."

Ryan Carter Inside Sarah and Steve Lowe's new business is a colorful world of monkey jumps, handstands, donkey kicks, forward rolls and birthday parties. It's not a zoo or a circus. It is The Little Gym. After taking some time to contemplate if it was the right move, and an initial investment of $90,000, the Lowes have bought into the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Little Gym franchise. Among the franchise territories they have bought is Glendale/La Canada Flintridge, where in October they opened their first Little Gym at 2196-A Foothill Blvd.

Whenever friends see me at the gym, their questions are the same: “Did you just join?” My answer is consistent. I was probably a member long before they were, but my attendance is sporadic. There are many objective and subjective reasons for this. Sometimes the sights, sounds and the smells of the gym are not necessarily inviting. I do enjoy playing sports more than being at the gym. Even if the exercise does not involve a game, I’d much rather be running, for example, where there is natural scenery and plush grass.

Robert Chacon Complaining that Paradise Canyon Elementary School already is overused by soccer teams and day care, neighbors of the La Canada Flintridge school spoke out against plans to build a gymnasium and multi-use facility on the campus. Neighbors said noise and traffic around the school is worsening. The comments were made Tuesday night during the city's Joint Use Committee public-input meeting. The project, which is in the preliminary stages, would be built on the campus of Paradise Canyon Elementary and used for school district functions during the day, and available to community groups like youth basketball leagues during evenings and weekends.

Alecia Foster LA CRESCENTA -- Everyone from former principals and coaches to current students and their parents filled the bleachers of Crescenta Valley High School's new gym Thursday night for its official dedication. Although the gym was not completely finished, the event gave the public their first peek inside the state-of-the-art facility. "It's fabulous," said Ed Goorjian, CV High's first boys' basketball coach. Many credit the school's boys' basketball team, under Goorjian's leadership, for putting the high school on the map in the 1960s and '70s.

Charles Rich LA CRESCENTA -- The echoes from a choir's hymn or a volleyball bouncing off the shiny floor will now flow inside the new state-of-the-art Crescenta Valley High School gymnasium. The gym opened its doors Wednesday night when CV hosted Glendale High in a Pacific League boys' volleyball match. The facility, which took about 15 months to complete, replaced the school's 37-year-old cramped gymnasium and will host numerous sporting and community events.

Peter Samore GLENDALE -- The problems of children having nowhere to go after school and lack of role models in their lives have always existed. A gymnasium in drastic need of repair also presented a problem at the United Community Church. However, all these problems are being solved by the church's Sports Ministry Program, an outreach program that focuses on giving children a place to go after school and attention from role models through sports.

Activity filled the Pacific Park gym Saturday morning as local youth and Glendale police officers joined together in friendly games of basketball. The games were the brainchild of Glendale Police Officer Jeff Davis, of the department’s special enforcement detail, who had met many of the teenagers who regularly hang out at the park during his routine patrols. “I think he was tired of arresting kids for marijuana and other minor violations,” said Sgt. Todd Anderson.

Hamlet Nalbandyan CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- The Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball program has a tradition matched by few, and a piece of that tradition might might have turned its last page Tuesday night. The CV gym, which first opened in 1961, could have possibly hosted its last boys' basketball, and for sure, its last playoff game. Unfortunately for the Falcon faithful, CV lost to Ayala High, 78-68, in a CIF Southern Section Division IAA third-round game.

Why not forgo smaller schools to attempt to be a walk-on at a Division I school? Why not sneak into the gym for tryouts? Why not wait in the dark for two hours until the coaches arrived? Why not? Narbeh Ebrahimian thought he'd simply try to play for the San Diego State men's basketball team in 2011. He had already been a standout point forward at Crescenta Valley. He was a captain and his team's most valuable player at Glendale Community College. He didn't want quit playing basketball, so he tried out for San Diego State instead of playing at a possible Division II school that promised more playing time.

Former Los Angeles Lakers star A.C. Green, who holds the NBA record for most consecutive games played with 1,192, was on hand to make the ceremonial first basket in the expansive new gym. The facility has a 144-foot by 80-foot play space and eight retractable basketball hoops, accommodating full-court team play allowing four simultaneous smaller-scale games.
