Police discovered a potentially-explosive lab used to extract hash oil on Saturday inside the garage of a north Glendale home. Detectives seized roughly 40 pounds of marijuana, approximately 181 cans of butane, three large tubes used for extraction and about 2 ounces of “butane honey oil” inside Andrew Hedenberg's detached garage in the 800 block of North Glendale Avenue, police said. “The potential for explosion is huge,” Glendale Police Sgt. Toby Darby said. “These things are blowing up all over the place.” Detectives discovered the lab after police said he reported that his girlfriend allegedly assaulted him. Hedenberg, 22, of Glendale was taken into custody on suspicion of manufacturing the “butane honey oil” - a highly-potent marijuana extract - as well as selling other potent drugs, including hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD and methamphetamine, Darby said.

Luis Pasache said. "It puts the community at risk," he said, adding that the home is between two apartment buildings.

GLENDALE — Kendra Owen was shopping at the Glendale Galleria on Wednesday when Alana Gregos, the assistant manager of the LUSH cosmetics store, briefed her on North America's dependence on fossil fuel. Gregos was one of the more than half-dozen LUSH employees who wore T-shirts, posters and black plastic oil barrels to raise awareness of the Canadian tar sands, an oil operation in Alberta that opponents say wastes energy and produces toxic runoff to neighboring indigenous people and wildlife.

There is much national controversy over balancing environmental preservation with the need to increase our production of energy from domestic sources. However, letters like Frank Drewe's "Open up Alaskan wilderness" (Community Forum, June 26) do nothing to bring rational comment to this important issue. He claims that by drilling for oil in the "Alaskan Wildlife Preserve" (I presume he is referring to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), "we would never have to buy any oil from Saudi Arabia."

Fire staff is in no need of cuts Regarding “Fire Department critic is accurate,” Mailbag, Oct. 10: Wow! Here we go again. After living in the awesome city of Glendale for more than 30 years, I find the discussion of reducing fire staff, funding, etc., to be utterly ridiculous. A three-man crew instead of four? Why? Because a former police officer or other political activists feel it’s a waste of money and resources? Have any of these individuals faced the complexities of firefighting or an actual fire that needs to be knocked down to save houses and lives?

JERRY LANE Does it strike you as strange that something we see and use every day is a subject to be discussed almost every night on the news? I'm referring to announcements like "gasoline prices are going up, folks," and "gasoline prices are at an all-time high" and (once in a great while) "gasoline prices have dropped 3 cents a gallon this week." Hardly a night goes by without some comment. Some newscasters conduct interviews with drivers who are filling their tanks with that precious fluid as they talk.

It is crucial that we get this current administration out of office! I've seen this nation get divided by this administration and I can't even fathom why we would want to elect them for another four years ... yikes! Why would we want to [subject] ourselves to that type of torture? Because we are scared. We've been scared into thinking that terrorists are going to attack again if we don't have our faithful leader, George W. Bush, by our side when he really hasn't been faithful at all. Just watch "Fahrenheit 9/11" by Michael Moore and you will see what I mean.

GLENDALE — Just as motorists were getting used to paying less than $2 at the gas pump, prices have begun creeping up. The price of regular gas has increased a penny per day since last week and, in some areas of Glendale and Burbank, gas prices have hit the $2 mark, said Marie Montgomery, an Automobile Club of Southern California spokeswoman. Gas prices in Glendale and Burbank ranged from $1.84 to $2 Thursday and are likely to go up, she said. The average price of regular gas throughout the state is $1.93, which is up from $1.79 last month, she said.

The Crescenta Valley Water District has bagged two more multimillion-dollar settlements from oil companies that officials claim leaked a contaminant into the local groundwater supply. So far, the district has penned three settlement agreements totaling $12.5 million, according to U.S. District Court records. The latest is a $4-million agreement with ConocoPhillips, which is set to be reviewed by a federal judge next month. In January, U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton Tucker approved another $4-million settlement, this time with BP, court documents show.

The Glendale News-Press article on Sept. 4 titled “Smart meters in the frame” was very informative. Jim Sepe holds the title of “chief technology officer” for Ceiva. I doubt that he is a guinea pig for the new project his employer is proposing, but is just using another snake oil sell about smart meters. Does anyone with a shred of common sense need another energy consuming gadget to advise them that when they lower temperatures or activate air conditioners, power use will either decline or rise in use?

I 've been feeling like one of those oil-covered sea gulls on a beach in Louisiana. Every morning I get up and take a look at the newspaper. I glance at the headline, usually in dismay, then automatically flip to the bottom of the page to see who died. It's morbid, I know. But it's just habit. And you probably do it too. On Monday it was former Dodgers pitcher Jose Lima's picture at the bottom of the front page. He was only 37 years old, five years younger than me. That's hard to swallow.
