Gary Moskowitz NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Patients in rehabilitation at Glendale Adventist Medical Center got some extra motivation toward recovery Tuesday. The 40 or more children in the medical center's campus children's center spent the last week making hats to commemorate the arrival of spring with their annual Spring Hat Walk. And with the help of the center's 14 staff members, the children -- ranging in age from 1 to 4 -- paraded through the medical center's lobby and rehabilitation center via baby buggies holding hands.

The City Council on Tuesday begrudgingly approved a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the motorist who struck cyclist Damian Kevitt near Griffith Park, maiming him to the point where he lost part of his right leg. Council members approved the reward despite many contending the money would be better spent on traffic safety issues within the city. But Kevitt's mother, Michele Kirkland, said on Wednesday that the reward will help to renew interest in her son's case.

It was the wheel-a-walk-a-thon on Friday morning at College View School — Glendale’s school for students with special needs — where transportation modes were more diverse than a typical walk-a-thon. Students traveled around a loop inside the school with teachers, parents and student volunteers from Glendale High School. Every College View student participated, whether that meant being pushed in a wheelchair, walking while holding a teacher’s hand or supporting their peers from the sidelines, Principal Jay Schwartz said.
