Amber Willard NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Glendale Police are searching for two men who robbed a Burger King with a handgun. The two men entered the restaurant, at 2060 Verdugo Blvd., shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday, workers told police. One of the men pulled out a gun and demanded a worker open the cash register drawers, then jumped over the counter and took money from two of them, police said. The second man leaned over the counter and took money from one of the registers.

Michael T. Giovanniello of Burbank is freelance writer. Something very unusual happened when I went to see "King Arthur." I was totally prepared to be bored during the umpteenth retelling of the classic legend. Expecting to see another innocuous Hollywood-glam, fluffy rendition complete with the anticipated exception of a modern, toughened-up Guinevere added to the mix. Instead, I was immediately captivated and then seduced by a great story of surprisingly interesting characters.

REEL CRITIC Justin Rubin of Glendale, 17, is a junior at Glendale High School. The long list of movies adapted from Stephen King novels have ranged from great ("The Shining") to bad ("Thinner") and everything in between. With the release of "Dreamcatcher," yet another King book gets to be placed in the mediocre category. This silly, meandering and confusing alien tale starts off fresh and scary, but by the 45-minute mark begins its steady pace downward into the simply ridiculous.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- A college professor with more than 30 years in education and two incumbents emerged victorious Tuesday night in the race for the Glendale Community College Board of Trustees. Professor Armine Hacopian and incumbents Victor King and Mary Hamilton made a strong showing as the precincts began reporting. "Today is my mother's 80th birthday," Hacopian said.

With absentee ballots counted and all f the 52 precincts reporting, Hamilton led the way with 11,961 votes, followed by current board President King with 10,803 votes and Hacopian with 9,866 votes.

The latest musical at the Glendale Centre Theatre, Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King and I," is simply a wonderful show. If you want to know why (although finding out for yourself is a lot more fun than reading a review), here are a few hints: Director Tim Dietlein is smart enough to cast outstanding performers. There isn't a weak link or an untrained voice in the bunch. Considering how many fine parts there are in "The King and I", that's saying quite a lot. Giving credit where credit is due means starting at the beginning, with only a partial list: Don Woodruff as the salty Captain Orton; followed by Jion Hukui as a seriously dangerous Siamese Prime Minister; Natalie Babbitt as the sweet but sadly doomed Tuptim; Valerie Jasso as the wise and devoted First Wife, Lady Thiang; Karrington as her son, Prince Chululongkorn, eager to be as great a man as his father; and J.K. Kokich as the smooth and charming Sir Edward Ramsey, with the thankless job of making everything Western look false and ugly, just when the audience's eyes and minds have adjusted to the exquisite beauty of the East.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — First- and second-graders at R. D. White Elementary School on Monday donned black paper fedoras sparkling with silver glitter as they serenaded hundreds of fellow classmates with two Michael Jackson tunes in tribute to his life. Two weeks before the first anniversary of the pop icon's death, the first- and second-graders stood outside on the school's footsteps and belted out the lyrics to "Heal the World" and "I'll Be There" while using hand gestures to illustrate the songs.

Ten years ago, Aleksan Khachatryan and Arthur Sahakyan were in my fourth-grade class at John Muir Elementary School in Glendale. They both knew only a little English at that time, but were focused students. What a treat it was to have these young men as the presenters of Our City, a Junior Achievement program! They were polite, well-dressed seniors at Glendale High School. The topic fit our third-grade social science curriculum. The materials were meaningful to my students who looked forward to each lesson.

Gretchen Hoffman Residents flocked to area parks to spend time with friends and family Monday as schools and offices closed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. At Brand Park, a group of men played football on one field while hikers headed into the hills above Brand Library. Across the entrance road, Simon Wang lighted a grill to barbecue lunch for his family. "We thought about Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday and this morning, and now we take this chance to picnic," Wang said.
