I read in the News-Press an article (“Smoking restrictions back to dais,” Sept. 25) about the Glendale City Council considering a law that would make it a violation to smoke in your apartment. I do not see why this a government problem. When someone rents or leases an apartment they sign a contract. If in that contract is says “no smoking,” they agree to it with a signature. It is the duty of the landlord, not the government, to enforce that agreement. If someone who lives next door does not like that person smoking in their own home then they should notify the landlord, not some government agency.

A brush fire that broke out just north of the Ventura (134) Freeway Tuesday climbed a nearby hillside and briefly threatened homes in adjacent Glendale before it was extinguished shortly after noon, officials reported. The fire, reported at 10:48 a.m. near the westbound lanes in Eagle Rock, prompted authorities to prepare residents on Sleepy Hollow Drive in Glenoaks Canyon to evacuate as water-dropping helicopters and ground crews from several fire agencies, including Glendale, battled the slow-moving blaze.

Pressure is mounting on the California Department of Transportation to sell the 460 properties it owns on the Long Beach (710) Freeway corridor, but officials say it could be years before any decision is made. For decades, Caltrans has owned hundreds of homes in Pasadena, South Pasadena and El Sereno. The agency acquired the homes in the 1950s, '60s and '70s to accommodate plans to extend the 710 Freeway from Alhambra to the Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena. The project has stalled amid lawsuits, funding problems and political controversy, and now it appears regional transportation officials favor digging a 4.5-mile tunnel to connect the 210 and the 710. As a result, calls for Caltrans to sell the homes are growing louder.

More homes face high risk of being destroyed in a wildfire in densely populated Los Angeles County than in any other county in the state, according to new insurance industry research that underscores that fire danger is not confined to rural areas. The analysis, released Wednesday by the Insurance Information Network of California, places more than 2 million homes in the high-risk category statewide. Slightly more than half of them are in Southern California, where huge, wind-driven fires have charred thousands of houses in the last decade.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- As part of a get-tough stance on variances and conditional-use permits, the Glendale City Council rejected a developer's plan to build two homes on steep hillside lots. The 4-1 vote means developer Mark Abrahamian of Glendale will have to return to the drawing board to submit a plan that would be acceptable to city officials and residents of Chevy Chase Canyon. The Chevy Chase Estates Assn. asked the council to overturn decisions of the zoning administrator and Board of Zoning Adjustments allowing Abrahamian to build three-story homes on two lots in the 2400 block of Cascadia Drive.

Driving down the streets of La Crescenta, friends and neighbors are pleasantly surprised (and often in awe of) the elaborate lawn displays that people erect to celebrate the Christmas season. Altadena may have Christmas Tree Lane and Woodland Hills Candy Cane Lane, but the foothills aren't exactly a Grinch when it comes to decorating. For the next few issues of the Valley Sun, we'd like to shine a spotlight on those homes that have made the extra effort to make everyone feel good when they travel down their street.

GLENDALE - With two weeks left in the regular season, the members of the Crescenta Valley High baseball team like their chances to win the Pacific League championship again. With Austin Brines on board and providing a steady bat in the heart of the Falcons' lineup, it's a big reason why they are in a good position. Brines drove in three runs to power Crescenta Valley to an 11-0 home victory against Glendale on Friday in a Pacific League game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Victims of former Councilman John Drayman's embezzlement scheme said they were shocked on Wednesday to learn the convicted felon would serve the remainder of his time in custody - an expected total of six weeks - in home confinement, after spending just eight days in jail. Originally, Drayman was sentenced last week to serve one year behind bars , but once he was in custody, his projected release date was slashed in half . It was cut once again Wednesday afternoon. “We spent three years working with the police and the district attorney's office trying to bring this man to justice and there's no justice,” said Dale Dawson, business administrator for the Montrose Shopping Park Assn., the organization from which Drayman had been accused of stealing more than $304,000 over seven years.

The Falcons bested the young Bulldogs on Friday night at Stengel Field, 4-1. “Beating every team will make us feel good,” Crescenta Valley senior Michael Russo said.
