When Oganes Menedjyan immigrated to the United States from Armenia in 1987, accompanied by 12 of his family members and two dogs, the man did not know a word of English. Today, along with his family, Menedjyan owns Moonlight restaurant, which opened Nov. 21 in Adams Square at 1022 E. Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale. The event was held to give the public a taste of Moonlight’s international cuisine. But it could have easily been a family gathering as evidenced by the number of family and friends that streamed in as the festivities started, hugging and congratulating each other as they looked around the new establishment.

Josh Kleinbaum When Branford Marsalis took the stage at the main lawn at Descanso Gardens Thursday night, he paused to take in the surroundings. "This is beautiful," Marsalis said. "If I knew this was here when I lived [in Los Angeles], I probably would've pitched a tent." For the next 90 minutes, Marsalis and his quartet thrilled an intimate audience with breathtaking jazz, from the fast-paced, roaring beat of "Mr. J.J. (J.J. Was His Name)" to open the set, to the lovely, emotional ballad "Eternal," a love song written for his wife.

About 30 hard-core fans began lining up before 9 a.m. at Descanso Gardens for Friday night's Indigo Girls concert. Many in the line traveled hundreds, even thousands, of miles to attend the show. Having a line of people waiting for an event was a first, Descanso officials said. Karen Rosenblum, 26, flew from Berkeley to attend the show, where she joined fans she knew from other shows or met on the group's fan Web site. "I go to as many shows as I can. I follow them all over the country," she said.

Last Saturday students from Clark Magnet High School danced the night away during their Moonlight Serenade Junior Prom. The prom was not held last year because of low ticket sales but that was far from reality this year as over 170 tickets were sold. “It was very successful,” said teacher and associated student body advisor Susan Giatti. The dance was sponsored by the class of 2010 and held in the cafeteria which was decorated by Stephanie Mines from Creative Source.

Dean Briggs of Glendale is an actor. "Moonlight Mile" is a deliberately paced movie, written and directed by Brad Silberling, dealing with loss and discovery, hope and despair, and lies and truth. Impossible to pigeonhole and with a wondrously eclectic soundtrack, "Moonlight Mile" treads on common themes in an uncommon fashion. It has a style that is not your typical Hollywood tear-jerker, but one that is rich with thinking characters that avoids slipping into false sentimentality.

When students come to school dressed in '80s clothing and have a mouthful of pie and whipped cream on their face, it can only mean one thing: homecoming week. For Crescenta Valley High School students, homecoming is more than a football game or a dance. "It means being able to see students eat gross food as fast as they can, getting to have shorter classes on Friday and having an excuse to come home late on Saturday night," said senior Jane Kim. Homecoming festivities began the week before the homecoming game as Spirit Week encouraged students to show their school spirit.

CITY HALL — The Moonlight Family Restaurant held on to its permit to serve beer and wine this week, despite accusations from nearby residents that it was operating more as a nightclub or banquet hall. The Planning Commission on Wednesday voted to allow the restaurant at 1022 E. Chevy Chase Dr. to keep its alcohol permit, but the commission placed stricter restrictions on its operations. The restaurant's permit will be valid for 18 months. The restaurant's owner, Oganes Menedjyan, must supply the city with a functional menu, serve meals, never use 30% of his facility for a banquet hall event, outline a dance floor and post hours of operation, according to the ruling.

Glendale Sunrise Rotary Club recently ushered a new Rotary club into town, a feat no other Glendale Rotary Club has accomplished in 24 years, said Peggy Riddle, who served as co-advisor with fellow Rotarian David Smith. The new club is named Glendale Moonlight Rotary Club because it meets at night. It has 26 charter members, Riddle said. “They are a younger group, full of energy, ideas and ready to make a difference in the community and the world,” Riddle said. The Sunrise Club hosted a June celebration for its offspring held at the Oakmont Country Club.

Gretchen Hoffman You won't see them wearing their Glendale Police uniforms, and they won't identify themselves as officers, but the training and knowledge is there all the same. About 50 members of the Glendale Police Department are moonlighting as security guards for DreamWorks SKG through Glendale-based Armguard Security. They're putting their terrorism training to good use in the post-Sept. 11 world. "We're really just there for peace of mind for the studio," said Matt Wojnarowski, a sergeant with the Glendale Police.

"I'd rather be here than any place else," said Brenna Cancilla, 10. "It's lots of fun. It's better than anything else I could have done." She and her younger sister, Alyssa, skated around the rink with more than 20 other children from around Glendale for the city-sponsored day camp.
