GLENDALE — Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian’s showing in Tuesday’s special election for Los Angeles City Council District 2 will decide more than just a seat on the dais. No matter how the final results come down, experts said Krekorian’s gamble will either pay political dividends or invoke voter ire when his Assembly term ends in 2010. “If I lived outside of [Los Angeles], in Burbank or Glendale, and my representative wanted to be on the L.A. City Council, then I would question whether he cares that much about my interests,” said Martin Saiz, professor and chairman of the political science department at Cal State Northridge.

Not only was Glendale Mayor Guz Gomez wrong about lowering the American flag for the foreign Armenian Genocide, but he was wrong as to all of the circumstances for initiating a recall campaign. He claimed only fraud and corruption by a public official could lead to a recall movement. As the recall committee stated several times, if a citizen is dissatisfied -- repeat, dissatisfied -- with the performance of a public official, he or she has the right to begin the recall process.

GLENDALE — A 3,300-mile journey across the country that took more than four months to complete is finally over for three Glendale residents. "We have wonderful, beautiful people living across the country, but there is a lack of information," said Vahe Abovian, 30, who went through six pairs of shoes on the journey. The information he and his fellow walkers spread was about crimes against humanity — genocide. "When you talk to people about genocide, they don't relate themselves to the problem," he said.

GLENDALE? A procession of about 20 people marched from Los Angeles City Hall to La Cañada Flintridge Tuesday in the first leg of a journey to Washington, D.C., to protest genocide and raise awareness of the problem. The Journey for Humanity is a 3,000-mile coast-to-coast march that the nonprofit group, United Armenian Students organized to recognize past genocides, honor their victims and hopefully prevent future crimes against humanity. "We're trying to show to our society that genocide is the greatest crime against humanity," the march's project director, 30-year-old Vahe Abovian, said when he and fellow students stopped for lunch at Verdugo Park Tuesday as they marched through Glendale.

TUJUNGA ? Preservationists have won two-thirds of the battle to have Weatherwolde Castle, built in the 1920s, declared a historical landmark. Los Angeles County's Planning and Land Use Management Committee ruled in their favor on Tuesday. The castle's application was unanimously approved by the Cultural Heritage Commission in September and will now go before the city of Los Angeles for a final review, said Michael Morgan, a member of preservationist group Crescenta Valley Heritage.

Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- Ask attorney Mark Geragos why he's become so popular with Glendale's Armenian community and he can't quite put his finger on it. "I have no idea," Geragos said. "You have some degree of success and I guess it goes from there." That's an understatement. Geragos is coming off several high-profile victories, the biggest being his acquittals for Whitewater figure Susan McDougal. But it's probably the legal wizardry he displayed keeping Los Angeles City Hall lobbyist Art Snyder out of jail that won him the most notice in the Glendale area, Geragos said.

A mile south of glittering skyscrapers, a Crescenta Valley family of three joined roughly 60 volunteers who spent Thursday morning in Skid Row distributing clothes, hygiene kits, sleeping bags and more to needy families. There were fears going into it, Caroline McKiernan said, but any anxiety evaporated upon arrival. ?I cried when I got here,? she said. ?I am glad my daughter can see what Christmas is about.? McKiernan, a Valley View Elementary School parent, had been collecting items for a month, she said.
