Great Divide? I was raised in the Crescenta Valley. I have lived in both the unincorporated section of La Crescenta and the Glendale annex. I found it interesting that Janet Thompson explained that the Glendale annex section has a "human society" defined by street lights, police service and sidewalks. I guess we who live on the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue are nonhuman by default. It must be the street lights and the sidewalks, because we have great police service from the sheriff's department.

MONTROSE -- When it comes to street lights, Andrea Humberger prefers the traditional type. So the Sycamore Avenue resident was annoyed when she received a letter from the city's Public Works Department stating improvements planned for the stretch of her street between La Crescenta and Rosemont avenues would include 25-foot-tall steel light poles with "cobra head" lighting. These industrial-style light poles, with curved overhangs culminating in a downward-facing light fixture reminiscent of the famed snake's striking posture, are markedly different from the 12-foot, ornamental light poles recently installed at the Montrose Shopping Park just a few blocks away.

Just days after the City Council voted to spend an unnecessary quarter-million dollars on fancy street lights in South Laguna, City Manager Ken Frank announced a hiring freeze. Many residents are not happy with the prospect of higher taxes to pay for disaster relief, so Frank used his executive powers to make the point that the city cannot operate in the red. Apparently the council majority hadn't been paying attention when city officials announced they were $1.2 million short on funding needed to assure safety and access to Bluebird Canyon before the winter rainy season begins.

When Officer John Darby sees blight, such as graffiti or illegal dumping, in his jurisdiction, he makes sure it gets cleaned up. Darby recently noticed gang graffiti spray-painted on a utility box, shopping carts piled up with trash and an old recliner left on the sidewalk at Emens Way and Justin Avenue, so he called the city’s Neighborhood Services to clean up the illegal dumping and vandalism. “There are kids that live and play here,” he said. “We don’t want them to see that.

CITY HALL Cameras installed on street lights Don't worry, that's not Big Brother watching you. The white cameras that have materialized in recent months atop light poles on Brand Boulevard are video-detection devices designed to measure traffic flow and coordinate signalization at intersections. While the cameras are the latest in traffic management technology, City Manager Jim Starbird stressed that at no point would the devices be used for policing or traffic surveillance purposes.
