GLENDALE — The Commission on the Status of Women this week agreed to join forces with a newly-formed community organization that has formed to develop more domestic violence resources and public outreach. The commission has been a staunch supporter of eradicating spousal abuse in the city, so members said joining the Domestic Violence Task Force on Monday was a natural fit. "This is an attempt to search out the needs of our community and to help the support groups' work together to provide more and better services to the community," commission Chairwoman Paula Devine said.

CRESCENTA VALLEY — One foothill resident's decision to paint her house neon green has drawn the ire of neighbors who say the jarring color stands out in all the wrong ways.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office is seeking the public's help in identifying a woman whose remains were found last year in the Angeles National Forest after the Station fire. Coroner's officials on Wednesday released a composite sketch of the Jane Doe, who officials believe was a white or Latino woman between the age of 20 and 40 at the time of death. The sketch was created using clay reconstruction technology. The woman's skull was found Dec. 26 in a burned-out area below Angeles Forest Highway, two days after hikers there discovered a male skull with a bullet hole, officials said.

LOS ANGELES ? A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Friday cited budget and staffing cuts before postponing the sentencing of a Glendale man who pleaded no contest to possessing child porn and an assault rifle.
