The "relatively weak" storm will move in Friday and gain momentum Saturday morning, said meteorologist Rich Thompson of the National Weather Service office in Oxnard. "It's not a tremendous amount of rainfall," Thompson said, estimating 1 to three fourths of an inch will fall in the central areas and about 1 inch in the mountains.

State forest firefighters will be on alert for brush fires in coming days as temperatures rise and strong winds prevail in Southern California. The Inland Empire already was experiencing high winds and rising temperatures early Wednesday, said Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, commonly known as CalFire. Winds were picking up Wednesday “to allow for the possibility of a mild Santa Ana event,” Berlant said. “This puts us back into the peak of fire season down in Southern California.” After rain earlier this month, forecasts call for temperatures in the 90s Wednesday and Thursday, and in the high 80s and low 90s Friday.

A feeble rainstorm from Alaska could possibly trigger thunderclaps in Los Angeles County on Wednesday afternoon and evening, forecasters said. The National Weather Service said there is a 20% chance of thunderstorms across the L.A. area late Wednesday. But the rainstorm was expected to be all but anemic, water-wise. Overall rain totals were expected to be light, with less than one-tenth of an inch in most areas, and some areas may not get measurable rain at all, forecasters said. There was a better chance for snow at local ski resorts, with about 10 inches expected for Big Bear and other areas above an elevation of 5,000 feet in the San Bernardino County mountains.

PASADENA - Two weeks ago, the prospect of the Glendale Community College men's golf team getting out of the Western State Conference Final and qualifying for the Southern California Regionals was bleak. But when the Vaqueros placed second in a conference match April 14 at Oakmont Country Club, there was a glimmer of hope that the team could qualify for the postseason. With three of the four postseason spots already locked up heading into Monday's conference finals, Glendale college would have to best the remaining four schools to earn a berth.

Amor, one of the Vaqueros' top players, suffered an apparent knee injury early in her singles match during Glendale's 5-0 road defeat against host Orange Coast.

After consulting with Glendale first-year Coach Deo Sy and an Orange Coast trainer, Amor chose to retire and her status for competing in the Western State Conference semifinals is up in the air. Amor, a sophomore, is scheduled to team with Viktoriya Shumakova (Crescenta Valley High)

In a blue Dickies jumpsuit and a black cap, Bill Saltzman greets me with a firm handshake. It's 9 a.m. on a recent Thursday morning and we're on a quiet, idyllic street in La Cañada Flintridge, walking towards the door of a house with a blanket, vacuum and a brush which looks like a fuzzy, flattened top hat fastened on a pole. “You can't make an honest living doing this,” Bill says, his salt and pepper beard neatly outlining his warm smile. “Believe me, I've tried.” For 35 years, Saltzman, or “Chimney Sweep Bill” as he's known, has serviced thousands of chimneys from the streets of La Crescenta, where he was born and raised, to cabins near Mt. Baldy, where the fireplaces are used for more than just atmosphere.

I moved to Glendale last summer from Ohio, where water is plentiful, and have been observing with interest the water situation here in California where Gov. Brown just declared the state to be in an “extreme drought” situation. I'm trying to do my part for conservation by not running the dishwasher unless it's really full or washing that extra load of laundry. So, I was surprised yesterday when taking my daily walk to see a home sprinkler system watering the street and sidewalk with a broken sprinkler system.
