Claudia Peschiutta MONTROSE -- While going off to summer camp may be scary for some kids, for others, it's nearly impossible. A group of L.A. County kids with moderate to severe asthma who might not otherwise be able to attend summer camp will get to take part in a specialized, weeklong program at Camp Marston this year, thanks, in part, to a $20,000 donation from Montrose Travel, officials said Friday. The donation will be used to help fund the "Barlow Respiratory Hospital Children's Asthma Camp," which will provide nearly 100 children, ages 8 through 12, with asthma-management education and other activities at a camp in San Diego County.

The San Diego County animal sanctuary that took in Meatball, the Glendale bear, now wants the woman who turned him into a social media darling, effectively saving his life, to sign away all legal claims to the bear's name. Meatball, who got his nickname after he was caught eating frozen Costco meatballs from a garage refrigerator in 2012, had two high-profile captures and relocations back into the Angeles National Forest. Per state policy, the bear would be killed by wildlife officials if they had to trap him a third time.

When Bill Sharp formed the Sumatra Surfzone Relief Operation earlier this year in response to the deadly South Asia tsunami, he figured he'd use his resources again after another coastal disaster. He just didn't think he'd be back in action so soon -- and so close to home. "We said there was no way this would ever happen in the United States. And then, boom, it happened," said Sharp, who organized the aid trip to Indonesia in January. "Who would have thought the two greatest coastal disasters in recent history would happen in a span of a few months?"

With Big Sister San Diego just 35 miles to the south, the young and developing Carlsbad probably always will be hidden a bit in her sister's shadow - but vacationers from all over California are now beginning to discover Carlsbad's many charms. It's a trade-off, of course. Come to Carlsbad and you eliminate the traffic and congestion of the city, the freeways, the constant "be-on-alert" driving and hassle you always experience in a big city. But then you also eliminate the Gaslamp District, Old Town, the Zoo, Coronado and the sites for which San Diego is famous.

GLENDALE — T-Mobile USA Inc. plans to drop its opposition to a city moratorium on cellular towers and work with residents and city staff members on a proposed antenna that sparked a grass-roots movement from neighbors, company officials said Thursday. The announcement followed a City Council vote Wednesday to place a moratorium on cellular towers, specifically targeting T-Mobile’s proposed installation in northwest Glendale — which neighbors said would lower property values and could be detrimental to their health.

It?s tough for this Californian to give up his car for the weekend, but that?s exactly what we did on a recent train getaway to Santa Barbara that proved we could do our small part to help reduce traffic and vehicle emissions and still have a great time. Santa Barbara is especially well suited to car-less travel because years ago city fathers decided they needed to do something to reduce the congestion they were seeing with many more visitors and the smog that would trap itself over the city.

Having launched the Glendale bear “Meatball” to stardom and nurtured a growing fundraising and media campaign to secure him a permanent sanctuary, Sarah Aujero was understandably excited to become one of few non-official people to see the 400-pound bear in person. Finally, after weeks of working tirelessly on his behalf, she would come face-to-face with the famous Meatball in his temporary, caged enclosure at a facility east of San Diego. And when the moment came last Thursday?

Glendale has entered the legal battle over wholesale water charges to San Diego County that could have major implications to local customers. The San Diego County Water Authority is suing the Southern California Metropolitan Water District - the Southland's main water suppliers to member utilities, such as Glendale, Burbank and the foothills - over what it claims are illegal overcharges included in rates for 2013 and 2014. If San Diego County is successful, the financial impact to Glendale and other Metropolitan member utilities could be significant, translating into higher rates for customers, officials say. For Glendale, the cost could be an additional $11 million for water over the next 20 years.

CITY HALL — The U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal Monday to hear Sprint’s appeal to a ruling upholding San Diego County’s restrictions on wireless cellular antennas in residential neighborhoods could make it harder for companies to challenge Glendale’s upcoming ordinance, stakeholders said. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Sprint’s appeal to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeal decision upholding a San Diego County requirement that companies prove they need a so-called micro-cell site in order to provide service to a certain area.

Fourteen-year-old Amber Dubois walked from home to school on Feb. 13, carrying a check to buy a lamb, which she would have taken care of at school. Amber, a member of the Future Farmers of America, was excited about buying the lamb, which her father, Moe Dubois, said she had saved money for. But Amber, an Escondido resident, never made it to school that morning or home that night. The vibrant and energetic ninth-grader, who has an affinity for animals and books, hasn’t been seen or heard from since Feb. 13. Amber’s parents feared that she was abducted because she would have never gone with a stranger and has no history of running away.
