CITY HALL — The massive $44-million Fairmont Avenue flyover bridge project will now likely include a widening of the Central Avenue offramp for the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway, following months of negotiations between city and state officials. The Central Avenue project had been tossed due to cost concerns, but after it became apparent that the bridge would come in under budget by about $3 million, city officials began negotiating with the California Department of Transportation on how to spend the difference.

How many times has it been said that books are doorways? Open them and you can take little journeys through the minds of authors or the subject's landscapes. Artist Susan Sironi has taken that metaphor and manipulated it in a very personal way. In what amounts to an act of reductive sculpture, she literally takes a scalpel to the concept and reshapes it. Sironi alters the terrain of books and renders new sets of coordinates within each. In so doing, she invests objects with new experiential material.

When it comes to art openings, Southern California audiences have a shared experience. It usually involves driving a fair distance and arriving at the exhibition space with an attendant amount of stress. Once inside, a visitor is often greeted by steely-eyed art-types in mandatory black attire, each one with a different agenda to advance. Crowds milling about the gallery make it nearly impossible to engage the work in any meaningful way. Invariably, reception-goers will be on their feet the whole time.

Tenants for about a half-dozen apartment buildings who were evacuated after authorities discovered a possible pipe bomb in the intersection of Harvey Drive and Wilson Terrace were allowed to return about 9 a.m. after it was determined to be a false alarm. The pipe was capped at either end, but a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department bomb squad discovered that it was empty. The scare shut down multiple streets and offramps for the Glendale (2) and Ventura (134) freeways during the morning commute, and prompted authorities to evacuate several nearby apartment complexes as a precaution.
