Fire crews were battling a 4,000-acre brush fire Monday morning in rugged terrain in the Angeles National Forest as the blaze forced officials to shut down the popular San Gabriel Canyon to Labor Day visitors. The Williams fire was just 5% contained as hundreds of firefighters from several agencies were trying to stop the forward progress of the flames, which sent a towering plume of smoke that could be seen for miles. Flames Monday morning were threatening mobile homes and other structures at the Camp Williams resort on the east fork of the San Gabriel River, the U.S. Forest Service said.

For Burbank resident Reynaldo Ramirez, Labor Day weekend is usually an excuse to get away. “Usually we go to the beach or the movies and spend the night somewhere else,” he said. But not this year. “We had no idea the economy would be so bad,” he said. Ramirez, a warehouse manager, instead opted for a low-key weekend, he said as he shopped for his wife’s birthday at Barnes and Noble in downtown Burbank on Monday. Later that night, his family would gather with family at his house for a small birthday celebration.

E. Manchester Boddy, owner and publisher of the Los Angeles Daily News, was a legend not only for his sharp editorials and shrewd business skills, but for the fantastic parties he threw in his backyard. Of course, it wasn't just any backyard. In 1937, Boddy purchased 125 acres of land in La Cañada and commissioned famed “architect to the stars” James Dolena to build a home for his family, which included his wife Berenice and the couple's two sons, Bob and Calvin. Dolena constructed a 12,000-square-foot, 22-room home on hillside with sweeping views of the valley.

GLENDALE— Kathy Allen and Lupe Bourden picked up their pasta and salad and left in a flash. The Glendale police dispatchers had to return to the phones and were unable to linger around police and firefighters who were treated to a catered lunch by the Olive Garden in Glendale on Labor Day. “We’ve got to get back to dispatch,” Allen said. The Italian restaurant chain donated and catered lunches to local fire and police offices throughout the nation Monday. It’s one way the company can thank public servants, service assistant Deborah Sanford said.

Less than two weeks ago, locals who felt betrayed by the actions of John Drayman, the disgraced former Glendale councilman convicted of embezzlement, were able to take a small amount of satisfaction when a judge labeled him a crook and sentenced him to a year in jail . After all, Drayman had pleaded guilty to perjury, filing false tax returns and to the most egregious of the charges against him, the theft of at least $304,000 from the Montrose Shopping...

Re “ New year will follow some familiar stories...Museum, library changes ” (Jan. 2): If a pending Carrell Associates survey is similar to the survey submitted to the City Council by the Rose Institute in late December, it will ask very general questions of respondents about their attitudes toward the city placing a parcel tax (“assessment district”) for parks, libraries and safety services on the June ballot (“Survey: Glendale residents open to new taxes”, Dec. 20).

Labor Day should also be dedicated to the “invisible workers,” those we never see or acknowledge, yet who make our lives so comfortable. Our heartfelt thanks to the gardeners, street cleaners, park attendants, dishwashers, waste disposers, and the myriad of dedicated workers who enhance the beauty of Glendale. Guy Tower Glendale

GLENDALE - Police broke regional records Friday when they arrested 12 motorists on suspicion of driving under the influence during a sobriety checkpoint, officials said. Most police checkpoints yield two to four intoxicated driving arrests, but Glendale police broke those averages for their region, said Community Service Officer Wendy Brewer, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County law enforcement anti-DUI campaign. “That's just unheard of for our area,” she said. Glendale Police Sgt. Michael Glassick attributed the high number of arrests to the availability of more police resources, including access to a jailer van. Direct access to the van allowed officers to remain at the checkpoint instead of having to drive arrestees to the jail to be booked and locked up, he said.
