I am about to break one of the cardinal rules of modern mankind. I am going to tell you what happened in Las Vegas. This isn't easy for me. On the flight to Sin City, I told my girls they may see disturbing things that would seem evil and unnatural. But, no matter what they saw, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. And then I needed a spring break topic for my column this week. So here's “The Hangover, Part III: Caneday Family Vacation.” Though my youthful days of nocturnal casino carousing are long gone, the siren song of the craps and blackjack tables still beckoned.

GLENDALE — A parolee who allegedly robbed a woman outside a Glendale convalescent home at knifepoint is in custody after eluding police for several months, officials said. Glendale police detectives had been looking for Richard Lugo since DNA evidence retrieved from gloves used during the November robbery matched his own, Det. Keith Soboleski said. "He couldn't explain why DNA evidence was present," Soboleski said. Lugo reportedly entered the lobby of a convalescent home on the 3000 block of Montrose Avenue about 11:50 p.m. Nov. 25 and sat there as if he was waiting for somebody, Soboleski said.

Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE -- The Glendale Panthers have usually had success in the Las Vegas Classic Tournament, but lady luck wasn't on the side of the locals this year. The 15-and-under boys' basketball team went 0-4 in the tournament that went from Aug. 3 to 5. The showing was the worst for a Panther team since 1995, when it lost all four games as well. The trip down to Las Vegas was a disaster as well, serving as a sign for what was to come.

The one-time owners of a tiny eight-room motel on the banks of the Colorado River must be feeling a little like the Native Americans who sold Manhattan Island for, let's say, less than today's market value. Not that these motel owners were short-changed by visionary Don Laughlin - it's just that now, four decades later, Laughlin has parlayed that $235,000 investment into a big-time resort empire that so far has drawn eight other casino/hotels to his little stretch of the Colorado.

Two former Glendale police officers who were fired for allegedly taking a department-issued car on a joy ride to Las Vegas almost three years ago have been reinstated. The Civil Service Commission voted 4-to-1 last week to give Fernando Salmeron and Mike Ullerich their jobs back after the pair, along with Officer Patrick Hamblin, were fired for the incident. The officers were reinstated with a 90-day suspension and had to take a pay reduction, according to Garo Ghazarian, commission chair.

Sin City. The City of Lights. A gambler’s paradise. Las Vegas is many things for many people. But for the students in JK’s Dance Company, Las Vegas means only one thing: dance. About 70 dancers, ranging in age from 8 to 17, have been practicing 114 numbers, two days a week, for the past four months in anticipation of the Las Vegas Encore Performing Arts regional competition in June. The rehearsal room at Revolution Dance studio, owned by Julie Kay Stallcup, was packed Wednesday with students, each wearing the dance company’s red and black uniform, comprising a red JK’s Dance Company logo-emblazoned shirt with black tights.

The continuing saga of Glendale's Americana project took a road trip to Las Vegas this week, as Mayor Bob Yousefian gambled on his ability to bring the two sides together and stave off a costly referendum on the project. Yousefian apparently lost his bet. He was able to meet separately with developer Rick Caruso and leaders of General Growth Properties, who have mounted a fierce campaign against the project, but he could not get the sides together. The two were in Las Vegas for a convention of store executives, and Yousefian seized the opportunity for some shuttle diplomacy.

LAS VEGAS — It took Karen Darabedyan 15 minutes to introduce himself to the mixed martial arts world.

It's official. Glendale has arrived. It now has a supper club on par with steakhouses in San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. It's no surprise because Michael Mina, head of the Mina Group of restaurants and the force behind Bourbon Steak Los Angeles, has 20 other concept restaurants in cities like San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. The Vegas vibe looms large here and I mean that in the best way possible. The space was created from scratch by in-demand design team AvroKO, evoking a first-class lounge feel.

Just a few days after the prospects of Ronda Rousey defending her Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title in a blockbuster bout with Gina Carano seemed oh so close, UFC President Dana White announced late Friday night that Rousey will instead put her belt on the line against No. 2-ranked Alexis Davis. “Ronda Rousey vs (sic) Alexis Davis Saturday, July 5th for the women's bantamweight title in Las Vegas for International Fight Week!!!” White tweeted. In past weeks, speculation was brimming at the prospect of Rousey (9-0)

One could argue that for a championship bout with such provocative story lines and pedigrees, Ronda Rousey's UFC 170 main event against Sara McMann has had less than three months of build-up. In reality, many would contend that the impending showdown for the Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title has been years in the making. “We started at the amateur level at the exact same time,” said Rousey at a recent open workout at the Glendale Fighting Club, where she trains under Edmond Tarverdyan.

LAS VEGAS - Manny Gamburyan might well have turned in one of his more inspired performances Saturday night at UFC 168 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His striking held up, he got his share of takedowns and he went for submissions. But counterpart Dennis Siver was simply a bit better in every facet, as Siver defeated Gamburyan via a three-round unanimous decision with 29-28 scores across the board in their featherweight fight. Gamburyan (13-8), who was cornered by Glendale Fighting Club's Edmond Tarverdyan, George Bastrmajyan and Andy Derminjian, had a two-fight winning streak snapped by Siver, the seventh-ranked UFC featherweight.

It wasn't all that long ago that Manny Gamburyan felt he was fighting for his job with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

In the aftermath of more than 20 seasons of “The Ultimate Fighter,” one common occurrence has seen a number of combatants on the long-running reality television series leave the confines of Las Vegas where the show is taped and migrate to the training grounds of the coaches who mentored them. “The Ultimate Fighter,” at its core, is also designed to give mixed martial arts prospects the opportunity to train among the best of the best in the hopes of fighting their way into the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

LAS VEGAS -- A four-hour journey across state lines did not produce the desired results for the Flintridge Prep football team Saturday evening.
