Warren M. Thomas is beginning research on the history of the area that includes the C. E. Thom and E. M. Ross holdings, with an emphasis on the Rossmoyne-Bellehurst Park areas. He has spent some time in the Special Collections Room at the Glendale Public Library and is checking with people having interest in the field to see if similar projects are in progress.

Claudia Peschiutta MONTROSE -- A little water isn't enough to dampen the spirits of this community. A break in a water pipe at the Montrose-Crescenta Library earlier this year damaged about 2,000 children's books but locals are working to replace the collection. Among those helping to raise the estimated $54,000 needed to do so are the members of the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce, who donated $1,000 to the library for new books, according to a news release.
