The flames weren’t yet spilling toward Maurice Avenue like lava from a volcano when Briggs Terrace residents were ordered to leave their homes, but within hours of being put under mandatory evacuation orders, the Station fire began its slow crawl into the canyons surrounding the neighborhood.
Bill targets scam artists
BURBANK — Hollywood dreamers and aspiring recording artists have for years been victimized by scam artists promising stardom, but that may change with new legislation awaiting Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signature.
Outdoor film festival kicks off
KENNETH VILLAGE — More than 50 visitors sat in lawn chairs and curled up on blankets Saturday for the first outdoor movie night of the three-week Kenneth Village Film Festival.
Smoke clears for Montrose art walk
Local residents savored the opportunity to stroll Honolulu Avenue on Saturday for the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce’s Art Walk after holing up indoors for days to avoid unhealthful air conditions caused by the Station fire.
Vaqueros impressive in first game
NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Finishing the season stronger than last year is a top priority for the Glendale Community College football team, but starting it off the way the Vaqueros did on Saturday night at Sartoris Field with a 51-29 thrashing of West Los Angeles College doesn’t hurt a bit.
GCC women place third
GLENDALE — Coming off a big win in the final race of the College of the Canyons Summer Series and now a third-place finish in the Fullerton Invitational on Saturday, the Glendale Community College women’s cross-country team has plenty of momentum to start the season.

It’s been a huge news week here in Glendale — from the Station fire to Michael Jackson — filled with near-scoops and tragedy, inanity and pathos. The story line reads a bit like “The Paper,” told by TMZ.
