Longtime La Cañada Flintridge resident and former city Planning Commissioner Maria Mehranian will be sworn in Saturday as a member of the California International Genocide Commission, established by state leaders to increase global recognition of atrocities committed worldwide. In part, the commission represents ongoing calls in California for federal recognition of the Armenian Genocide, which from 1915 to 1923 claimed the lives of 1.5 million Armenians and which will be commemorated this weekend.

It wasn't a soccer game or a football game or a even a concert of a popular artist that drew an estimated 50,000 faithful to the Rose Bowl on May 19. It wasn't a job fair or an exhibition of boats or cars that drew people from as far away as the Philippines to the 85-year-old stadium. The event was a simple and humble devotion to Mary and her rosary. Many were there to pray for their families. Many came with their parish families. Others were there to testify on how the rosary helped them achieve peace in times of cruel uncertainty.
