I write this with dismay at Robert Morrison for his letter “Politicians’ words don’t pass the smell test” on June 25 (Mailbag). I say thank you, temporally, to the City Council for tabling the smoking ban for apartment dwellers, but no thanks to most of the other restrictions (“Council eases up on smoking,” June 18). The statement by Morrison that owners of restaurants who allow smoking in their patios deter patrons from sitting outside is not correct, as far as I am concerned.

Crescenta Valley Park invites every little ghoul to come to a "Scream Fest" sponsored by the park's spooky staffers. There will be a haunted house where kids can weave in and out of the ghostly maze as they see how brave they really are. For those who want a less intense fright, the patio will host more friendly fiendish delights. This would be perfect for little ones that want to be part of the Halloween without the screams. This is the first year the park will be hosting a haunted house.

Crossing the threshold at Casa Cordoba in Montrose is like crossing eight time zones. You land smack dab in southern Spain. A bubbling fountain in a Spanish courtyard lures you in. Strains of classical guitar draw you deeper inside where custom-built tiled tables and Moorish lanterns stand among Picasso, Miro and Dali prints. Another room holds pretty earthenware imported from villages in Andalusia, traceable on a large, beautifully lit map under glass. Owners Jeannie and Chris Bone took their time decorating the cafe, an homage to their beloved vacation spot of Cordoba, and they did a splendid job. The food matches the decor - unique yet well-suited to the Southern California lifestyle.

LA CRESCENTA — Summer heat and charred hillsides have prompted the tell-tale signs of wildlife coming down into urban neighborhoods for respite and food. Bears, bobcats, deer and coyotes have been spotted recently in backyards and on neighborhood streets as much of their habitat recovers from the massive Station fire and subsequent mud flows. Black bears have been spotted roaming the Briggs Terrace neighborhood, said Los Angeles County Sherriff's Lt. Angela Shepard. The bears have been wreaking havoc on gardens, and leaving piles of dung behind.
