GLENDALE — A mountain lion was spotted early Tuesday in the foothill neighborhood above north Brand Boulevard, officials said, prompting warnings to residents and hikers to keep their wits about them, especially in the hillside areas. Residents reported seeing the mountain lion just after 1 a.m. Tuesday roaming the area of Cielito Drive and Deermont Road, said Hillary Gatlin, Pasadena Humane Society’s community resource assistant. But the mountain lion didn’t stick around, and may have been long gone when the society’s animal control officers arrived, she said.

Even the residents of Sunland-Tujunga would agree the community is not exactly a foodie mecca. Still there are some good reasons to head over to this historical, artsy section of our valley. Sure, there are plenty of smoke shops, body shops and wrought iron fences but who knows? It could become the next Eagle Rock. Then you can say you knew "S-T" back in the day. The Back Door Bakery & Cafe (8658 Foothill Blvd.) used to be in Silver Lake but a few years ago they brought their unique brand of daily-made treats to Sunland.

During the final weeks of the regular season, the Glendale High girls' tennis team showed some signs of improvement. It gave veteran Glendale Coach Bob Davidson reason for optimism heading into the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs. Davidson didn't count on the Nitros to struggle as much as they did Tuesday during a wild-card road match against Foothill. “We didn't put up much of a fight and I felt like it was as poor as we've played all year,” Davidson said after Glendale suffered a 17-1 road defeat to Foothill.

In all of the following instances, I am a pedestrian in La Crescenta: 8 a.m.: Foothill and Lauderdale intersection, a person I know did not slow or look before approaching the light to make a right turn. Lucky for the kids and me, we were 10 feet away. 2:20 p.m.: Foothill and Lauderdale intersection, I was almost mowed down by a Caltrans worker. The driver sped through the intersection in his orange pickup so fast I couldn't get a number off the vehicle. He blew through the red light while looking down at his lap. I called Caltrans to report him, hoping Teletrac is used.
