GLENDALE — City executives, hamstrung by a city election and grim budget season, expect the arduous process of picking a successor for Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams to begin in a few weeks, despite his plans to retire in roughly two months. Since Adams announced his retirement on April 8, city officials have yet to discuss plans to approve an interim chief or begin searching for his replacement because they have been focused on the city budget, Human Resources Director Matt Doyle said.

It seems to be the running joke at La Cañada Congregational Church that the Rev. Skip Lindeman has been the interim interim pastor for the last seven years . It was supposed to be a position the former broadcaster was to have held for only a few months, but he ended up staying for almost a decade. If I didn?t know any better, I?d say the Central Assn. of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ, La Cañada Congregational Church?s governing body, just said, ?

This story has been corrected, see below for details. At a hastily arranged town hall-style meeting Thursday, Glendale Community College officials announced plans to cut $13 million from the college's 2012-13 budget, regardless of the outcome of a state tax initiative that goes before voters in November. A major part of the cost-cutting - $9 million - will come in the form of significant pay cuts for 115 classified employees, who will see their work schedules reduced by one month if the plan is approved by the board of trustees.

There's been plenty on Aaron Milam's plate as of late. He became engaged in January and his father, Nyle, died May 11 at 81. While juggling an array of emotions, he served this past season as the interim coach of the St. Francis High baseball team. St. Francis removed the interim tag from Milam's position Tuesday, when it named him the program's new head coach. "Personally, it's a big relief not being the interim coach anymore," said Milam, who served as an assistant at St. Francis from 2004 until early 2012, when Milam's predecessor, Brian Esquival, resigned March 16. "I'm happy that I can continue to run the program and the players and I already know each other.

When legendary Crescenta Valley High softball Coach Dan Berry passed away last October, it was a given that whoever succeeded him at the helm of the Falcons would have huge shoes to fill. Mark Samford, a longtime basketball coach at the school, took up the challenge on an interim basis and kept the Falcons in the chase for a Pacific League title and back in the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. As a result, Samford was fitted for some more permanent footwear on Tuesday when Crescenta Valley ended its coaching search by officially naming Samford the head man. "That was one of many factors [in his hiring]

The grass at Robert Lundigan Park in Burbank was just a midway stop for the more than 750 pink, gray and blue comforters stacked high on Wednesday. Glendale- and Pasadena-based partners of the nonprofit Family Promise of East San Fernando Valley made short work of loading up the donated comforters to distribute to local homeless clients - the first harvest of a three-month donation campaign backed by the online bedding firm the Company Store. The store is donating one comforter to the program for every one sold through March to benefit families served by Family Promise affiliates and partners across the U.S.  The Homeless Solutions Project, which helps the homeless in Burbank and Glendale get into transitional and permanent housing, and Door of Hope in Glendale and Pasadena were among the organizations represented at the park Wednesday.
