One of Glendale Unified School District's three National Merit Scholarship Finalists speaks English as a third language. One is a homecoming princess and a drama queen. The third competes on the tennis court and in academic quizzes. Seniors Mkrtich Ohanyan of Clark Magnet High School, Polet Bagatourian of Crescenta Valley High School and Andrew Bagwell of Hoover High School all received the honor making them eligible for $1,000 scholarships.

BURBANK ? Before the season started, Burbank High softball Coach Jana Kovar called the 2006 campaign "a rebuilding year," while Crescenta Valley skipper Dan Berry said "position for position, we probably have the best hitting team we've had at Crescenta Valley High School." A little more than a week into the season, however, the results reveal a much different story. Burbank scored three runs in its final two at bats to upset Crescenta Valley, 4-3, in eight innings Monday in a nonleague game at McCambridge Park.

GLENDALE — Ninth-graders in Glendale and Burbank schools improved their scores on state physical fitness exams, according to figures released Monday. About 82% of Glendale freshmen reached five of six state standards for fitness last school year, an increase from 80.7% in 2007-08, according to the California Department of Education. The exams test students’ aerobic capability, body mass, flexibility, abdominal strength, upper-body muscles and trunk extensions, or stomach-down sit-ups.

Crescenta Valley High School out-cooked eight other high schools Friday in a chili-making showdown at Glendale Community College, serving up what event organizers hope will be a yearly culinary competition. Russel Gruener, 18, a bistro class student at Crescenta Valley High, speculated on what set his team's recipe apart. "I think it's because we have barbecue sauce," he said. "We also have sirloin beef in ours instead of like some kind of pot roast or ground beef." The Crescenta Valley team's presentation — with white table cloths and a snowy antarctic theme — and its chili stood out enough to win the Grand Prize.

Goodbye, 2006. Hello, 2007. Oh yes, what a year it was — the good, the bad and the ugly. And there was some of each in 2006. Elections brought a new crop of legislators to the area. Burbank saw a return of the popular Burbank on Parade back after a year's hiatus. Brand Boulevard in Glendale finished an extensive face-lift, work on the Americana at Brand began, and a Glendale woman's gift of more than $1 million led to a new field at Crescenta Valley High School for generations of students to benefit from.
