Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Ernesto Martinez has a simple reason for wanting to keep tobacco out of the hands of kids. "I wouldn't want my child to buy tobacco products," he said. The manager of a local gas station, Martinez was among nearly 100 store managers and employees from throughout the area who attended a workshop Tuesday at the Hilton Glendale to learn ways to keep minors from buying everything from cigars to to pipes. The free workshop was put on by the Coalition for Responsible Tobacco Retailing, a group made up by manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, including Philip Morris USA and R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. The organization sponsors the "We Card" campaign and provides free training sessions and materials to businesses throughout the U.S. "Retailers want to do the right thing," said Read deButts, the coalition's executive director.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- Look at this way, kids, there's still late-night TV. A minor change to one city law could allow police to enforce a nighttime curfew for minors. Police had not been able to enforce a 1995 law after similar laws were declared unconstitutional almost three years ago. "Right now we can't file any charges," said Glendale Police spokesman Sgt. Rick Young, in reference to nighttime curfew violations. Police have been able to arrest minors on suspicion of other charges like drinking in public, he said.

GLENDALE — After a recent survey found that 24% of Glendale tobacco retailers would sell to minors, a group of local youth have called on the City Council to make a stand against tobacco sales to minors. The Glendale Healthy Youth Advocacy Coalition — a group formed through Glendale Adventist Medical Center to fight tobacco use in children — spoke to the City Council on Dec. 5 and suggested an ordinance be passed that would require tobacco retailers to obtain a permit for sales, just as alcohol retailers do. "We had our day in City Council and I was very pleased with the result," coalition director Steven Gallegos said.

GLENDALE ? Nearly one in four tobacco retailers in Glendale were willing to sell tobacco products to minors, a Glendale Adventist Medical Center study found. The hospital's Youth Purchase Study showed that 24 of the 100 vendors surveyed were willing to sell to minors. That figure is more than twice the 10.2% of tobacco retailers statewide that a 2005 State of California study found were willing to sell tobacco products to minors. "That's pretty shocking," said Steven Gallegos, Glendale Adventist's Community Advocate.

GLENDALE — An ordinance requiring store owners to have a city permit to sell tobacco products is nearly complete and promises to light up a grass-roots movement for a citywide smoking ban. The new permit would be in addition to the state license vendors must have and is meant to cut down on tobacco sales to minors. This comes after a 2006 study that found 24% of Glendale retailers were "ready and willing" to sell cigarettes and similar products to children under 18. Tobacco retailers would be required to pay a proposed $250 annual fee to maintain the permit, which could be revoked if retailers are caught three times in five years selling to minors, according to the licensing ordinance, which is scheduled to go before the City Council on Aug. 28. The ordinance represents two years of coordination between a coalition of health and youth advocates, the city, local hospitals and business owners, said Guadulesa Rivera, community advocate for Glendale Adventist Medical Center, which has devoted thousands of dollars toward studying the issue and developing the proposal.

Assemblyman Paul Krekorian will host a workshop in Burbank designed to educate constituents on how to protect against identity theft. “Identity theft is one of our fastest-growing crimes,” Krekorian said. “Unfortunately it is likely that many of us know someone who has been victimized. Identity protection begins with informed, aware consumers and these workshops will explain how to reduce vulnerability to theft and what to do if you become a victim.” The workshop is slated for 7 to 8:30 p.m. on April 17 at the Buena Vista Library meeting room at 300 N. Buena Vista St., Burbank.

Glendale and Burbank students recently began taking the new computerized exams that have replaced the pencil-and-paper standardized exams across California. Both school districts have spent months preparing to administer the new exams that align with the state's newly implemented curriculum known as the Common Core. The schools will not receive scores measuring how well students do this year - which is considered a transitional period with many state and local educators seeing it as a year to “test the test.” Burbank Unified students began taking the exams earlier this month and, so far, it “has gone very well,” said Sharon Cuseo, director of instruction and accountability for Burbank Unified.

Many snapshot moments occurred throughout the 2013 Little League season. Some local teams repeated achievements from a year ago, like the Arroyo Seco Saints run to the Palomino World Series and the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team's appearance in the Southern California State tournament. Other teams had the joy of soaking up all new experiences and success. After a wild walk-off game in the District Tri-Cities tournament, the Crescenta Valley Kiwanis and Aristo minor softball teams joined forces for a Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball run in which they racked up District 16 and Section 2 titles and advanced to the Southern California State Championship final - going as far as a 9-10 team could possibly go. Many players stood out on diamonds across the area before taking their talents to other regions.
