A senior-facility operator wants a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to let it collect money from a future sale of Twelve Oaks Lodge - the surprise closure of which caused controversy late last year - according to court documents filed last Friday. But a philanthropic group with deep ties to the La Crescenta elderly-care facility, which sued the senior-facility operator in October , believes Twelve Oaks Lodge shouldn't have been closed at all nor should the operator, be.group, reap any reward if it is sold.

A longtime tradition changed this weekend for the Glendale chapter of the National Charity League, a philanthropic organization for women and their daughters. The chapter moved the location of its annual holiday party, in the past thrown for local seniors. The move is one example of how the organization is moving on following the closure of Twelve Oaks Lodge, a senior assisted-living facility that the league has steadfastly supported for decades. The charity group used to throw an annual holiday party for residents of the now-shuttered facility in La Crescenta.

In late August, 50 of our senior neighbors, residents at the idyllic Twelve Oaks Lodge facility in La Crescenta, learned they had two months to vacate its premises . The reason? Its operator, be.group, maintains that holding onto the property any longer is a losing proposition. Now the goal is to sell it to a developer who can build single-family homes on those attractive, tree-shaded 4.5 acres. As we've reported, Twelve Oaks has a long history in the community. It was entrusted by a philanthropist in the 1930s to the Verdugo Hills Sunshine Society, which in turn gave the trust to the Glendale chapter of the National Charity League in 1976.

The Glendale chapter of the National Charity League sent an inquiry this week to the California attorney general's charitable trust division requesting an investigation into the sale of an assisted-living facility in La Crescenta that will displace about 50 seniors. The nonprofit league, which ran Twelve Oaks Lodge before the current owner, contends that selling the 4.5-acre property violates the trust's original intent, so they are seeking the attorney general's help in clarifying the issue.
