Kevin Alvarado faces one count of indecent exposure in connection with Monday's incident, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. Police initially contacted Alvarado at 2:01 a.m. in the 1200 block of East California Avenue after a 51-year-old Glendale woman told officers he had approached her and she sensed something wasn't right.

Lone motorists would be able to use car-pool lanes during off-peak hours on some of Los Angeles County's most congested freeways under legislation approved by the state Assembly. The measure would allow single-occupant vehicles to use high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes after rush hours on certain stretches of the 134, 210 and other freeways in Los Angeles County deemed appropriate by the Department of Transportation.  The Assembly voted 72-0 on Thursday to send the bill by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake)

The meeting started late and it started badly, with a 10-minute argument about approving the minutes of the last meeting. Then it headed downhill. Issues that were raised were sent to committees for further study, though no one was quite sure which members were on them or when they would be able to meet. Welcome to the San Fernando Valley Council of Governments - a three-year-old coalition that was supposed to finally, belatedly, bring the cities of Glendale, Burbank, San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Los Angeles together to develop plans and raise funds to solve transportation and other regional problems like every other part of the county has been doing for so long.

Adrian Vega and Toni Deluca were driving home on a mid-April night when their car struck bicyclist Cameron Douglas. But the matter of who was driving the car was the topic of debate that took over a Los Angeles courtroom this week. Both Vega and Deluca are high school swimmers, aspiring Olympians and hopeful UCLA athletes, and each insisted they were not behind the wheel. Their testimony, in fact, was given on behalf of a Crescenta Valley student and a Louisville High student pretending to be Vega and Deluca during the semifinals of the Los Angeles County mock trial competition this week.

A mental health agency that services clients throughout the Southland has experienced a deluge of clients in Glendale since opening here last summer, far outpacing its 10 other locations in Los Angeles and Orange counties. “We realized there was a need, because there is not a comparable agency providing mental health facilities for children and adults, but we had no idea how pent up the need was,” said Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services President Kita Curry. Since opening in May 2011, the nonprofit has seen about 50% more people in Glendale than Didi Hirsch's next largest site in Inglewood.

A landmark appellate court decision Tuesday overturning Proposition 8 prompted a range of reactions from local political officials. Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, whose district includes Burbank, Glendale and La Crescenta, blasted the 2-1 decision by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel that upheld a lower-court ruling that found Prop. 8 unconstitutional because it discriminates against a minority group. “Once again, activist judges with a political correctness agenda have disenfranchised the people who voted overwhelmingly to oppose same-sex marriage in California - over 4.5 million Californians in 2000, and over 7 million in 2008,” Antonovich said in a written statement.
