The throne of the Exalted Ruler was empty. The Esteemed Leading Knight was nowhere to be found. And the rest of the brothers from the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge No. 1378 in Redondo Beach, were not to meet until Tuesday night.

Former Glendale City Councilman John Drayman is set to spend a year in jail and pay about $305,000 in restitution after pleading guilty Wednesday to three felonies related to embezzling from a farmers market. He also agreed to pay about $14,000 in restitution to the California Franchise Tax Board, the Glendale News-Press reported. Drayman is scheduled to return to Los Angeles County Superior Court on April 7 for formal sentencing. He will also serve five years' probation. In September, Judge Stephen Marcus rejected Drayman's plea deal proposition that included 300 hours of community service and restitution, but no time behind bars.
