Gretchen Hoffman A routine fire drill at a convalescent home Thursday proved its worth the next day, when an employee -- having just been refreshed on emergency procedures -- grabbed an extinguisher and put out a kitchen fire. Glendale resident Roland Cristoval, 41, was working at Leisure Glen Care Center, 1505 Colby Drive, about 8:05 a.m. Friday when an electrical panel shorted and burst into fire, activating the alarm and strobe lights. Cristoval was a little scared but he didn't panic -- he ran toward the smoke.

It's just two weeks after the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce announced it would not have the annual Fourth of July Fireworks show at Crescenta Valley High School because of the new track and field. It's also just two weeks before another fund-raising event - the Golf Tournament at Verdugo Hills Golf Course. "It's a fun - and a fund-raiser - event," Ken Biermann, chairman of the May 6 tourney, said. He said the tournament draws a variety of players with an array of skills, including participants in the women's tournament and past winners ranging from their teens to their 80s. "We usually have a lot of yelling and screaming."

Darleene Barrientos They're known as the sewing ladies to their co-workers, but to bedridden veterans and sick children, they're heroes. The volunteers at the Glendale-Crescenta Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross need residents to come to their rescue this time, however. They need yarn and cloth donations, which they use to create dolls, lap robes and bed jackets. The ladies are accepting any size cloth or remnants of any color or pattern, said Carolyn Gillis, the chapter's coordinator of volunteer special projects.

Ryan Carter Iva May Hanger was born in 1899. William McKinley was president, the lawn mower had just been patented, and baseball's World Series had yet to be conceived. For her 104th birthday, Hanger smiled and joined her family and friends Wednesday at Royal Palms Convalescent Hospital as they reflected on how anyone could live so long. For Hanger, the answer was simple: Her longevity was all about following God and eating pinto beans. "I always lived a clean life," she said.

LA CRESCENTA — A large "For Sale" sign has gone up in front of Rock Haven Sanitarium, the historic 84-year-old convalescent home on Honolulu Avenue, advertising three-and-a-half acres comprising 11 parcels of land. And according to the property's zoning code, fears of a condominium replacing Rock Haven could be realized, said Chris Baxter, with the city's Planning Division. The property is currently divided into two zoning codes — C2-1, which allows for medium-density commercial, on the Honolulu Avenue side and R3050, which allows for the low-density multi-family, on the Hermosa Avenue side.
