Long before we ran out of energy in California, the housing crisis was prologue to today's headlines in Glendale. For 30 years, we in California have been shutting down production of housing on the one hand, while on the other, we wonder why we have no housing, exactly as we did for energy and a host of other public goods such as water and airports and roads. And nowhere is this contradiction better illustrated than in two California cities, one in Orange County, the other in Riverside.

There is an “extreme” danger of a fire starting in counties from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara on Thursday and Friday, the National Weather Service said. The danger is so high because of a “combination of moderate to strong Santa Ana winds, hot temperatures, very low humidities and unusually dry fuels,” the service said in a statement Thursday morning. Mountains and valleys across L.A. and Ventura counties are under a red flag warning through Friday night, with humidity expected to be extremely low and hot winds blasting north across the region at speeds upward of 40 mph in the valleys and coasts and 70 mph on mountaintops, the L.A. Times reported.

GLENDALE — Their stellar high school careers came to an end. For the second consecutive year, Sarah Salvo and Christine Cho saw their bid to compete in the WSCGA-CIF State Championship fall just short. Salvo fired a four-over-par 76 and Cho carded an 80 on Monday at the CIF-Women’s Southern California Golf Assn. Championship at The SCGA Golf Course in Murrieta. The top six scores from non-qualifying teams from Monday’s 18-hole round qualified for the state championship, which will take place at 8 a.m. Thursday at Poppy Hills Country Club in Pebble Beach.

There was a time when, to enjoy top-drawer entertainment, you had to drive to the nearest big city and sit with at least 25,000 other music fans straining to see tiny musicians on a stage so far away it could be in another county. And just like any other big event, half the battle was creeping along in a conga line of traffic that literally added hours going to and from the event. California's Indian casinos have changed all that. While many of them do offer entertainment that hasn't seen the musical charts since the days of disco, some of the casinos are stepping forward with current big-name entertainment that may play a casino one night and a stadium the next.

GLENDALE ? The results might have been more respectable had the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls? golf team listened to their coach. For most of the season, Crescenta Valley Coach Ken Johnson tried to hammer the point across that chipping and putting would make a huge difference with respect to how the Falcons fared in the Pacific League, as well as the CIF tournament. Practicing both facets of the game would possibly lead to lower scores across the board. Poor chipping and putting hampered the Falcons Monday, as they saw their season come to a close after finishing 10th at the CIF Southern Section Central Team Divisional at Menifee Lakes Country Club in Riverside County.

GLENDALE — At least there will be other tournaments to compete in during the summer. That's the approach that Glendale resident Sarah Salvo will take after she couldn't put all facets of her game together during the inaugural TomatoBank Southern California Classic at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont. Salvo, a senior at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High, shot a four-over-par 76 during her third and final round Thursday in the Girls' Division. She finished in a four-way tie for 13th place with a three-round score of 226. "There are a lot of things that I could have done better," said Salvo, who helped Notre Dame win the Mission League championship last fall.
