LA CRESCENTA — Veterinarian Steve Sallen, founder of the Rosemont Pet Hospital, has spent nearly three decades caring for animals in the Crescenta-Cañada community. But after a recent dirt-bike accident, it was his turn to be cared for. On July 11, Sallen and his son set out from the family’s vacation house in Gunnison, Colo., on Honda dirt bikes. Sallen’s bike was a recent purchase, and he had yet to adjust the frame to fit his height and build. He struggled to keep his balance at sharp turns, but successfully traversed a steep trail frequented by dirt bikers.

Robert Chacon Residents on Chevy Chase Drive are appealing and asking the City Council to install a cement sidewalk in their neighborhood rather than the dirt path the Traffic and Public Works Commission recommended. The City Council will hold a public hearing on the controversial walkway plan today. In November, the Public Works and Traffic Safety Commission recommended that the council approve installing a four-foot wide, landscaped dirt path in the 4400 and 4300 blocks on the west side of Chevy Chase Drive.

Sometimes teaching is a dirty job. But Mary Landau likes it that way. And her R.D. White Elementary School students have proven her teaching methods are effective, winning accolades and blue ribbons for their agricultural crafts and projects over the years. About two dozen of her Extended Learning Program students dug canals Thursday using child-sized shovels, hoes and rakes on a 300-square-foot patch of dirt to learn how to siphon water out of a small tank and into the canals.

Josh Kleinbaum After about five minutes, Bandelero had seen enough. While the four people stood around talking, the large Lusitanian took a few steps forward and to his right, and then nestled his nose against the door to his stall. "He knows his place," said Magali Delgado, the equestrian co-director for Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type show that will open April 27. Four days after arriving in Glendale, Bandelero knew exactly where home was -- a 10-by-10-foot stall in a warehouse last used as an artist's studio, smack in the middle of downtown Glendale.

There is an incredible amount of celebrity gossip in the media recently. From Anna Nicole Smith's drama to Brittany Spears' challenges. Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Sponge Bob are all subject of rumors and innuendo. An unlikely source of much of the hot gossip that's on the news has been traced back to a unlikely location just south of La Cañada High School. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, and the Frisbee players in Hahamonga Park, this innocuous business is a hotbed of information trafficking.

Darleene Barrientos After weeks of hauling dirt and debris from Glendale's Brand Park basin, county workers still have more to do. Is the work important? Only if you don't want mud and water flowing right down Western Avenue and into Glendale's hillside homes. Los Angeles County workers have removed about 100,000 cubic yards of dirt and debris from the basin since the rainy season started, Glendale Urban Fire Forester Doug Nickles said. Erosion was one of city officials' chief concerns after the September fire that charred 752 acres in the Verdugo Mountains.

A 38-year-old Eagle Rock man was killed in a motorcycle accident that occurred on Tuesday at 1 p.m. on Angeles Crest Highway (State Route 2). According to a California Highway Patrol report, the man was riding his motorcycle westbound on the Angeles Crest just east of Mount Wilson-Red Box Road at an estimated speed over 55 miles per hour.

Construction crews are tearing up the field where many memorable moments unfolded for the Orange Coast College baseball team in its run to the state final four just a few months ago. Mounds of chocolate-colored dirt and dump trucks occupy much of the space where players slammed home runs and made sliding grabs not too long ago. But while OCC enjoyed one of its most successful seasons last spring, the field and...

About 20 Glendale residents learned composting tips Saturday morning, at the city's Integrated Waste Management building where Regina Wheeler showed residents the worms she maintains there that produce nutrient-rich fertilizer. Wheeler now feeds nearly 2 pounds of worms, but she started with 1 pound, the amount necessary to begin composting. Once a week, she feeds them vegetables or lettuce, and once in a while, coffee grounds. By Saturday, the worms had nearly devoured an avocado Wheeler placed in there two weeks prior.

Editor's note: While Patrick Caneday takes some time off, we're running some of his choices for re-publication. This column was first published Aug. 29, 2009. I was feeling rather morose the other day. Kind of pathetic, lowly, defeated and self-loathing. There was a dull pain in my chest that I attribute to being unsatisfied with my job, having not left a significant mark upon this world by the age of 42, having neither made the best-seller list - which would actually require writing a book - nor being a millionaire and owning a vacation home in either Cambria or Palm Springs.

PASADENA - Plans to remove up to 4 million cubic yards of dirt from behind Devil's Gate Dam are provoking concerns about the destruction of wilderness, heavy truck traffic and the possible presence of Native American remains. More than 60 people - including members of the Gabrieleño Band of Mission Indians worried that bones of their ancestors may have mingled with sediment deposits behind the dam - gathered Wednesday at the Rose Bowl for a meeting that kicked off a two-year environmental review process ordered by the county.

By spring, dogs and their owners will be able to enjoy off-leash play time together in Crescenta Valley Park. But the changes at the park required to make this possible came in at a price more than double the original estimate. Los Angeles County supervisors on Monday approved $645,000 in Proposition A funds to build a 1.5-acre off-leash dog zone in the park at 3901 Dunsmore Ave. in La Crescenta - the first of its kind in unincorporated county land. While the move was hailed by longtime advocates, the price tag was far higher than initial cost estimates of $300,000 because an entire top layer of soil will have to be trucked out of project area, officials said.

A dozen volunteers toiled over a barren dirt lot Saturday on Monterey Road to prepare it for what will soon be Glendale’s first community-run garden. There are other neighborhood gardens in Glendale, but the 11,000-square-foot lot at 870 Monterey Road will be the first to be organized by a nonprofit organization and operated under a co-op comprising its gardeners. Volunteers with the Los Angeles International Church of Christ and Coalition for a Green Glendale, the nonprofit in charge of the site, worked to clear the ground of rocks and chunks of asphalt Saturday in one of the final days of dirt grading before crews start building the infrastructure required to support a large-scale community garden.

GLENDALE ? Family and friends visited their loved ones? graves on Sunday at Grand View Memorial Park, six days after a Los Angeles Superior court ordered the cemetery to be opened. Judge Anthony Mohr signed a court order on June 24 during the hearing at the Central Civil West Courthouse, allowing Glendale?s oldest cemetery be open Sunday, July 13 and July 27. Sunday?s opening was the third since August, when city-funded public visitations were halted after fire officials said the cemetery presented several safety hazards, such as dry grass, brittle tree bark and limited water access, said attorney David Baum, who represents cemetery operator Moshe Goldsman.
