Alas, the words we cherish in Glendale — "mountain" and "oaks," have come together to keep us apart ("Residents pool their opposition to project," Sept. 26). We cherish nature. We love the Mountains, love the oaks, but hate those who may trample them. In an overcrowded world, the last gasp of nature stands between neighbors. Can we ever see eye to eye instead of confronting nose to nose? Folks, there is an alternative perspective. Can those who live in the vicinity of Mountain Oaks stake a claim to stem further development without getting the charge of elitist, self-serving egoists?

LA CRESCENTA — Residents packed the Foothill Builders and Lumber store Thursday evening to express concerns about a proposed three-story building on Foothill Boulevard that they say will block their mountain views and clash with their town’s rural aesthetic. When Laura Oghlian was looking to buy a home, she had the option of choosing from three houses with the best view of the mountains.

I really don't want Oakmont View V to be developed. If it were developed, hundreds of innocent, beautiful creatures would lose their homes. It would also ruin many people's gorgeous views of mountains that they probably paid for along with their homes. If Oakmont View V were developed, there would be a lot more pollution. If we all work together, we can save the peace and tranquility of the ever-beautiful mountains! I'm 11 years old, and I don't want any other child or me to grow up in a jungle of people, cars and big, ugly buildings.

Congressman Adam Schiff is reviving his proposed bill to study a nature conservancy zone around the Rim of the Valley trail, which stretches in concept from the Arroyo Seco to the Conejo Valley. Schiff said he has hopes for more success with the bill this session. "This is our third or fourth time around," he said. "It passed the Senate before, and one time got through committee." The legislation directs the secretary of the interior to study the feasibility of expanding the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area to include the mountains and canyons in Southern California that are part of the Rim of the Valley Corridor, as designated by the State of California.

A bobcat was spotted walking toward the wash near Rosemont and Mayfield avenues in Montrose Wednesday morning, a day after officials from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife held a meeting informing La Crescenta residents how to avoid and handle potential encounters with wild cats, coyotes and bears. By the time Crescenta Valley Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene on Wednesday, however, the cat was gone. Tuesday's public meeting - a joint project of wildlife officials and the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station - was spurred by the death of a pet dog named Bridgett, who was killed in late November by a mountain lion in a La Crescenta backyard.

LEBEC - Flintridge Prep's football team would just as soon forget about its first-half showing against host Frazier Mountain on Friday evening. Characterized by miscommunication and infighting, the Rebels fell behind by 24 points. Flintridge Prep was able to remedy its ills, putting together a spirited final 24 minutes. The first-half deficit proved too much to overcome on the scoreboard, but after the Rebels' 36-29 loss to the Falcons, they most certainly found the silver lining in defeat.

A plot of ground that in 2006 was the proposed site of an Armenian high school and condominium project has caught the interest of the City Council. In a closed-door meeting this week, council members discussed purchasing the land, which is near Crescenta Valley Park. Since the high school / condo plan fell through, the area, which is part of a larger 40-acre site known as Mountain Oaks, has sat vacant and previous city plans to snap up the land to preserve open space have lingered.
