Extensive renovations to the Casa Verdugo library are nearing completion, but work on the adjoining fire station still has a long way to go. Even as a significant portion of the second floor at Fire Station 26 is being gutted, officials hope to open the Casa Verdugo library on the 1100 block of North Brand Boulevard before May 1 - excluding any construction delays, Libraries Director Cindy Cleary said. The library and fire station have shared the building since 1951. A complete teardown of the building had been planned, but when the economy took a downturn in 2008, those plans were quashed, said Glendale Fire Battalion Chief Greg Godfrey.

I am sitting on a gray, velvet, diamond-tufted couch in a top-floor apartment that overlooks Los Angeles. The view is breathtaking. There are hookah pipes strewn around on tables outside and a Mariah Carey song is the background music of the day. But I'm not here to talk about organizing parties or how “Always Be My Baby” is Carey's best song ever (you can argue this point with me later.) I'm here to talk about something a little less appropriate when it comes to polite conversation, something taboo, something there's no good word for when you're trying to explain what it is you're actually talking about.

Despite the heart-wrenching, devastating loss of her 20-year-old daughter who died in a gas station bathroom after using heroin, a local mother showed extraordinary courage last week in reliving the story during a meeting sponsored by the Crescenta Valley Town Council . Perhaps Hannah Spring Sheklow's recount of the struggles her late daughter , Elannah Rose, will help save other parents from the same grief she endured. But while the meeting at the La Crescenta Library drew about 100 people of varying ages, word needs to be spread even further.

Are bathrooms without handicap grab bars blight? According to the Glendale Redevelopment Agency, they are. On Tuesday, the agency declared bathrooms at Fire Station 26 and adjoining Casa Verdugo Library blighted in order to use $305,000 in redevelopment money to pay for upgrades at the facilities. The upgrades have been on the city's capital improvement wish list two years in a row, but budget shortfalls have kept them from being funded.  City officials said in a report to the City Council Tuesday that there were “no other reasonable means of financing the improvements.”  The move shows the extent to which Glendale relies on its Redevelopment Agency, which the state is trying to eliminate.

DOWNTOWN — Wheelchair-bound Jorge Acevedo, a longtime Glendale police volunteer, has struggled for 10 years to get around his home because it isn’t outfitted with disability-accessible equipment. But that could soon change. Glendale police employees on Thursday hosted a fundraiser at Damon’s Steakhouse for disabled-access upgrades to Acevedo’s home in Los Angeles. The remodel would allow Acevedo, 39, to become more independent and less reliant on his parents for help, he said.

There are few things more annoying, grating and distasteful than the sound of your own voice. I hear mine in a recording and picture Gilbert Gottfried with a head cold. I can’t believe no one has pointed this out to me before. I also hate watching myself on video. It’s not only my voice now, but my posture, my slowly distending abdomen, my teeth. That obnoxious facial tick. A few weeks ago we spent the night in a hotel. The bathroom in our room had a huge wall-to-wall mirror that kept no secrets.

It was the middle of second period at Hoover High School as two students made their way back from their lockers with their heads through the sleeves of a bright yellow vest, wearing it like a scarf. Down the hall, another student wore an orange vest with a black “9A” across his shoulders, a reference to the classroom where the student is a teacher’s assistant. “We look like highlighters,” senior Eric Briggs said. The vests resemble what workers wear on construction sites and represent Hoover High School’s newest tactic to keep kids in class and strangers off campus.

LA CRESCENTA — Two Strike Park has a new addition to the landscape this summer in the form of some eye-catching murals. Brianne Johnson, 15, a member of La Crescenta’s Girl Scout Troop No. 290, recently completed her Gold Award project, which included the creation of Two Strike Park’s new pond and garden, as well as a series of colorful and informative murals. The murals, which also serve to educate the public on native plants, were temporarily placed on the outer walls of the park’s restroom facilities last week, and that’s where they will hang permanently once the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation Department procures the necessary protective glass and frames.
