Someone's feet need to be held to the flames over the planned -- or rather, unplanned -- fireplace at Crescenta Valley High School's library. A large gas fireplace was originally penciled in for the library but had been taken out. Concerns over the overall cost of the renovations -- $44 million -- and that the fireplace would seem ostentatious led the school board to direct the architect to remove it from the plans. Even though the wall where the fireplace would have been is solid, it seems that much of the work for the fireplace has remained in the plans.

For three years in the late 1940s, Michaelynn Cashion lived in a house on Alma Street. It featured a fireplace lined on either side with bookcases, an arch between the living and dining rooms, French doors opening to a side yard and a bay window overlooking the front yard. Although she was not aware of it at the time, the house had been designed by Alice Lee Gregg, of Gregg’s Artistic Homes. In 1949, Cashion moved to the Bay Area and didn’t return to Glendale until the mid-1980s when Gregg’s Artistic Homes was developing property near Beaudry Terrace.

The Bashors used the adobe as a country retreat for several years. The historic adobe that stands in the Verdugo Woodlands became a country hideaway for a city doctor in 1946. Dr. Ernest Bashor, who worked in downtown Los Angeles and lived in the Silver Lake area, longed for a place to escape from the rigors of medicine and began looking around for a little hideaway and eventual retirement cottage.

In a blue Dickies jumpsuit and a black cap, Bill Saltzman greets me with a firm handshake. It's 9 a.m. on a recent Thursday morning and we're on a quiet, idyllic street in La Cañada Flintridge, walking towards the door of a house with a blanket, vacuum and a brush which looks like a fuzzy, flattened top hat fastened on a pole. “You can't make an honest living doing this,” Bill says, his salt and pepper beard neatly outlining his warm smile. “Believe me, I've tried.” For 35 years, Saltzman, or “Chimney Sweep Bill” as he's known, has serviced thousands of chimneys from the streets of La Crescenta, where he was born and raised, to cabins near Mt. Baldy, where the fireplaces are used for more than just atmosphere.

Overruling the objections of a neighbor who said the project would invade his privacy, the City Council on Monday upheld the approval of a second-story addition in the 1200 block of Flanders Road. In February, the Planning Commission approved by a 5-0 vote a 1,320-square-foot addition to an existing single-story home at 1225 1/2 Flanders Road, owned by Hui Su and Chengxing Zhai. Philippe Hartley, who owns a nearby home, appealed that decision, arguing that the second story would allow for invasive views into his backyard.

home A defective flue in a fireplace caused a fire early Sunday, causing about $10,000 damage to the home. The fire was reported about 4:21 a.m. Sunday at 212 N. Belmont St., Glendale Fire Battalion Chief Bob Doyle said. The fire, which went into the surrounding walls rather than up the fireplace's chute, caused about $10,000 in damage to the house and some smoke damage to the contents. "The fire only caused minor damage in respect to what it could have caused if it had gotten in to the attic," he said.
