The Source handed me a brown paper bag, smiled, and then she was gone. I opened the bag and saw a manuscript. The date was 1935. I looked again and realized it was pay dirt: W. D. Chawner’s Caltech master’s thesis on the Great Montrose flood of 1934!

Billed by supporters as a way to preserve open space in Los Angeles County for generations, the measure directs the secretary of the interior to study the feasibility of expanding the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area to include additional portions of the mountains and canyons within the Rim of the Valley corridor.

It wasn’t easy to say goodbye to Chris Gray, Glendale’s fire chief since 2001, who left the department Thursday after 21 years of service. As he and his family leave, we wish them well as they head north, where Gray will take the helm of San Rafael’s fire department. And we thank him deeply for his service. The outpouring of thanks and good wishes for the future for Gray and his family on Thursday during a ceremony at Fire Station 21 came from all different area of the community, and were well deserved.
