Residents reporting seeing a man masturbating last week in front of an apartment building on Palm Drive, police said. Witnesses said the man was standing behind a white picket fence about 2:47 p.m. Wednesday on the 600 block of Palm Drive and begin whistling at a woman as he touched himself, according to Glendale police reports. _________________________ FOR THE RECORD: This corrects an earlier version that listed Palm Drive as Palm Avenue. _________________________ The woman yelled at the man and warned that she would be notifying police, prompting him to flee, according to police reports.

Rosemont Middle School’s semi-annual Lunch on the Lawn event is proof that middle schoolers really can enjoy their parents’ company. Under a warm sun, students and parents gathered on the school’s middle field and amphitheater for lunch on a recent Friday afternoon. Shade being at a premium, those who were able squeezed beneath leafy trees, while others sat under colorful umbrellas. Everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves, smiling, laughing and chatting together while enjoying an afternoon meal.

Paul Clinton GLENDALE -- Police launched a murder investigation Sunday after finding a 65-year-old woman dead on her front lawn, a police spokesman said. Glendale police spokesman Rick Young would not release the woman's name, since her family had not been contacted, but said she died from blunt force trauma to the upper body. The woman's husband, Allen Reich, found his wife on the lawn of the couple's 192 Wonderview Drive home Sunday morning, shortly before he reported the death at 6:16 a.m., Young said.

The Crescenta Valley Water District last weekend dedicated its new water-conserving garden. It replaced the district's thirsty garden, originally created as a celebration of water. At the moment, the district's new garden doesn't really look like much. The native plants are still small, and to be honest there's a lot of dirt between them. It's a far cry from the mature pine trees the CVWD cut down to make room for this landscaping. But give it time, and it will be beautiful.

In a recent news article, it was suggested that David Wood’s synthetic lawn is a controversial violation of city codes (“Not the typical turf war,” Aug. 7). Forgive me for failing to see the controversy in such an isolated case. It is not as if Wood is scattering auto parts on his lawn, asking to put cardboard cutouts of Hollywood celebrities in front of his house, or even mounting those dreaded plastic flamingos. Then I would understand calling the tacky police and issuing a citation.

Guest Column By Vasken Yardemian As we prepare to turn back our clocks an hour on Sunday, Oct. 31, for the Daylight Saving that is also a good time to adjust our outdoor watering habits. This means more than just adjusting the clocks on our automatic systems. Shorter daylight hours and cooler temperatures mean gardens and lawns need less water. Those with automatic sprinkler systems or other irrigation devices with timers are encouraged initially to reduce the amount of time per irrigation by at least one-third for lawn watering in fall and plan for another reduction in winter.

I have a sister who is wealthy enough to have installed artificial turf in her backyard (“Council, residents weigh in on allowing artificial turf in front yards,” Aug. 11). To her, it made sense because she has three dogs. In order for her to maintain the aesthetic of a green lawn with no yellow spots from dog urine, she wanted to try the artificial turf. After three years of having her artificial turf, there are no yellow spots, but her grass has lost its initial luster and color, and it does not resemble anything in nature.

Cemeteries aren't usually thought of as hotbeds of activity, but last Saturday night at the Forest Lawn Museum, atop the memorial park's Glendale grounds, proved the exception. As a blues band blared and colored lights splashed off the white walls of an adjacent chapel, several hundred guests ate, drank, danced and kibitzed in the museum plaza - all in the name of art. The occasion was "Drew & Bob: Masters of the Movies," the latest exhibit in the museum's series of open-to-the-public cultural events.

When shoppers at the mall are searching for those perfect skinny jeans, they can also now shop for the perfect final resting place. Forest Lawn Glendale recently opened a kiosk at the Glendale Galleria where people can get information about funeral plots, urns and make plans for the Great Beyond. Ben Sussman, vice president of community relations and media management for Forest Lawn, said the kiosk makes perfect sense because it provides a community service. “We try and go where our customers are and feel comfortable...

Dozens of art enthusiasts gathered at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale for a panel discussion featuring female artists and a state senator, with their focus being women in the arts and ways to push legislators to prioritize funding for arts education. The Southern California artists, along with State Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge), discussed the role of women in the arts during a forum hosted by the Glendale Commission on the Status of Women and the Forest Lawn Museum in connection with the museum's ongoing exhibit titled “LA Women: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow.” The exhibit, showing at the Forest Lawn Museum until Jan. 5, features 24 female artists from different time periods who've been influential in local art culture and history, some of whom pursued art despite a lack of access to an arts education.

Our Realtor suggested we include this personal letter with our bid to set us apart from the 83 other offers you're likely drooling over right now.

We hope you find our bid of $75,000 over asking price pleasing. I fancy myself a writer, but I've got nothing on the wordsmith who drafted the listing for your "quaint California bungalow.

Before I became a homeowner, I would frown down upon houses in my neighborhood whose front yards looked like a scene from a horror movie.   “How can you live with an ugly brown patch” I would think. I would just figure seniors on fixed incomes lived in those homes who couldn't afford gardeners or high water bills. Little did I know how expensive it was to maintain an attractive lawn. Since I've became a homeowner back in 1995, the one expense at the top of the list has to be landscaping.

Once again, the Forest Lawn Museum is host to the work of an extraordinary artist: the Russian-born painter Marc Chagall. Currently on its walls are 65 early monochromatic works, under the exhibition title “Chagall: The Early Etchings,” showing illustrations that are vivid and imaginative. The etchings originally illustrated two popular literary documents: “The Adventures of Chichikov,” by Russian poet and novelist Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852), also known as “Les Ames Mortes” (translation: “The Dead Souls”)

The U.S. Supreme Court this week heard arguments regarding whether the Los Angeles County Flood Control District bears responsibility for addressing pollutants found in the county's storm water, even when the source of the pollutants has not been identified. On a related issue, many GNP readers have likely received the District's official notice regarding its proposed Clean Water, Clean Beaches Measure, which would assess property owners an annual fee for water quality improvement projects.

If you think all paper books can be replaced by a Nook, iPad or Kindle, take a good look at “Picasso, Braque, & Léger: Twentieth Century Modern Masters,” an exhibition of works on paper at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale. Three early founders of Cubism, the most catalytic movement in modern art, engaged with poets, writers and printers to produce “livre d'artises” (artist books), not only as bound volumes, but as folios, scrolls, fold-outs, loose items in a box and concertinas.
