Mountain Street

GLENDALE — The ballooning cost of a Mountain Street widening project has forced Glendale Community College to call a special meeting today to decide how to pay for $760,000 in unforeseen costs. College trustees will consider three ways to fund the street-widening project, which is tied to the campus' much-anticipated parking structure. The three options boil down to either taxpayers, students or the college bearing the brunt of $760,000 in costs, which have forced the project's total price tag up to $1.7 million.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — It took a 16-year-old to slam his Lexus into Craig and Tammi Relyea’s brick retaining wall Wednesday night for them to realize that repeated calls to Glendale Police wouldn’t be enough to curb what they say is an increase in speeders along their street. Perched atop a small hill on the corner of Ard Eevin Avenue and Mountain Street, the Relyeas’ home was never in danger of being hit, but the car did leave a scar in their yard Wednesday after the driver lost control of his Lexus LS400 as he came east around the curved intersection at about 11:50 p.m., according to a California Highway Patrol report.

Darleene Barrientos District officials Tuesday will discuss how a mudslide from its hillsides might complicate plans to widen Mountain Street and build Glendale Community College's new parking structure. After three weeks of heavy rain, a slope owned by the Glendale Unified School District gave way after the mudslide, which also shut down Mountain Street for several days. The district, college and city had already been working on plans to widen Mountain Street to accommodate extra traffic expected when the college builds its 1,100-space parking structure.

Claudia Peschiutta ROSSMOYNE -- The usual peacefulness on Mountain Street was broken Friday afternoon when several Glendale Police officers responded to a call for help. A Glendale man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly striking his mother with pool-cleaning equipment, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Kuh said. The woman refused medical treatment, he said. Kuh could not say why so many officers responded to the woman's call, which was made shortly before 5 p.m. More than an hour later, curious commuters drove slowly down the street looking at the three remaining Glendale Police cars.

I was most disheartened by my fellow drivers on a recent day. As I drove south on Cañada Boulevard, I noticed a pedestrian at the southeast corner of El Rito Avenue waiting for traffic to stop so she could cross to the west side of Cañada. I stopped. The woman tried to wave me on as she saw other vehicles coming that were about a block away. I thought the drivers coming up behind me might realize I was stopped for a pedestrian. I counted no less than 12 other vehicles whiz by me or go around me, never even slowing down.

Recent mountain lion sightings in the hillside neighborhoods of Glendale prompted city officials on Thursday to release a new website that will allow residents to report wildlife sightings and check out other sightings logged in the area. The site, created by city tech staffers, was designed to track public sightings of mountain lions, bears, bobcats, coyotes and deer, but is not a substitute for reporting an emergency. “We still expect you to pick up the phone and call 911 if you feel you are in danger,” said city spokesman Tom Lorenz.

I live near the intersection of Royal Boulevard and Mountain Street. Several times a week at 4:30 a.m., somewhere nearby a truck backs up repeatedly, with the corresponding beeping back-up warning. The acoustics of the canyon make it seem extremely loud and also make it very difficult to figure out where the beeping is coming from - my best guesses are the Civic Auditorium or Glendale Community College. Does anyone have any idea where this could be coming from? I'm sick of being awakened at 4:30 and don't want to wear earplugs to bed every night, so even knowing the trucks' schedule would be helpful.

GLENDALE — The black hen near Glendale Community College that became an international story has found itself a new home, at a chicken coop in Simi Valley. On Sunday, Berna Arnold did what animal control officers could not — she caught the chicken on the busy street corner and gave it a home on her ¾-acre rural lot in Simi Valley. She named the hen Lucky. “She is lucky that she didn’t get hit by a car and lucky to have a great new home to go to,” Berna Arnold said.
