A woman in her 30s, discovered dead in the passenger seat of a black Kia by Burbank firefighters Friday evening, has been termed a suspicious death, officials said. Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said firefighters found the body in the 500 block of North Sparks Street at 7:31 p.m., and alerted police. He said officials were still attempting to determine what happened, and that the investigation would likely last well into the night and early morning. “There are no obvious signs of foul play,” Ryburn said of the woman, whose identity was being withheld pending notification of next of kin. “We're in the process of finding and talking to witnesses.” However, a man who only identified himself as “a local business owner” said he knew the family, and that he believed the woman died of a drug overdose.

A group of residents on Glendale Avenue who had caught the ire of city code enforcers for attaching convex mirrors to city-owned trees to better view oncoming traffic got some relief this week. Mayor Laura Friedman announced at the City Council meeting this week that despite the mirrors being against city code, the residents would not be forced to take them down. The residents say the mirrors are needed to navigate fast, heavy traffic when backing out of their home driveways.

After watching the Zoning Appeals Board hearing on 1650 Hazbeth Lane on Monday on TV, it is clear that another hillside and neighborhood is in the process of being destroyed by a proposed massive building project. I saw the property owner present a case for a 5,000-square-foot home on a steep hillside lot requiring a 1,100-square-foot driveway to get to the top of the hill. The proposed driveway will cut into a hillside, zigzag on the property and wrap around the hill. The home will be more than twice the size of any home in the area.

Police arrested a 34-year-old man Thursday after they say he was driving around naked from the waist down because it gave him a sense of “freedom.” During the ensuing investigation, police say they learned that the man, Umar Khan of Glendale, often drives around the city at night or early morning hours naked from the waist down and looks for a cul-de-sac or home driveway to masturbate in, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Khan was convicted of indecent exposure in 1998, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.

Hundreds of screaming young thugs committing vandalism, public drunkenness, trespassing, destruction of private property, littering and disturbing the peace with traffic jams - just the annual “spirited” Halloween night on Kenneth Road. My husband and I stopped passing out candy three years ago (after our pumpkins were smashed, our decorations stolen and our driveway egged.) Now we turn off all lights and peer out through closed shutters at rowdy crowds milling up and down the length of the street.

A handful of residents living along a busy stretch of Glendale Avenue say city officials are forcing them to take down mirrors they've attached to trees in the public right-of-way so they can better see oncoming traffic while exiting their driveways. The residents, who live north of the Ventura (134) Freeway, say in the absence of any speed-reduction enhancements, such as speed humps, the round convex mirrors are one of the few safety measures they have. City officials, though, say the mirrors aren't allowed on city-owned trees.

I’ve been writing this column for almost a year, so it might be time to let you in on a little secret about an activity my wife and I do as often as possible. Ready? We borrow neighborhoods. Yep. We take walks in ZIP codes other than our own. The La Cañada neighborhood bordered by Angeles Crest, Foothill, Gould and Lynnhaven in particular attracts our purloined pedestrian moments. It’s not that we don’t appreciate living in our humble hometown environs. No sir. We’ve lived happily ever after at the same La Crescenta address since we were married way back when.
