A registered sex offender from Glendora is accused of making harassing and obscene telephone calls to a Covina business associated with children, police said. Paul J. Cricks, 48, was arrested at a West Covina motel Wednesday, Covina police said.

GLENDALE — The new year brings a host of new laws, including reduced penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana, making online and electronic impersonation a crime and banning all foods with artificial trans fats. Starting today, getting caught with less than an ounce of marijuana will no longer be a misdemeanor crime after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law a measure that reduced the offense to an infraction punishable only by a $100 fine. Schwarzenegger stated reduced penalties for the offense because the judicial system "cannot afford to expend limited resources prosecuting a crime that carries the same punishment as a traffic ticket.

Per Joshua Pelzer's News-Press article July 12, the subcommittee of the Rental Housing Issues Working Committee is proposing "options" for modification to the eviction ordinance. (Since the last set of "modifications" accepted by council, the term "just cause" should probably be dropped from the name of the ordinance.) What modifications to the current watered-down ordinance is the subcommittee now evaluating/proposing? Take a look, then ask some key questions and do some real critical thinking.

For the first time in four years, the overall crime rate increased slightly in Glendale last year, with a spike in the number of property offenses. While violent crimes - which include homicides, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults - remained low last year, property crimes jumped and pushed up the overall crime rate by 3%, from 3,283 incidents in 2012 to 3,383 last year. Still, police expected violent crimes to stay down, which is in line with a nationwide reduction, Glendale Police Chief Robert Castro said Wednesday at a Community Police Partnership Advisory Committee meeting.

In response to Greg Christopherson's June 15 letter, "Najarian sends city up in smoke", I am equally as frustrated by the continued flaunting of Glendale's smoking ordinances.

Each time you observe people smoking where it is prohibited, send an email to Armine Jimenez at ArJimenez@ci.glendale.ca.us. Include the name of the business and its address, along with the details of your observation.
