It may be a matter of days, months, or even years, but when the historic May-Lane/La Crescenta Motel is bulldozed to make room for a planned strip mall it will take with it a bit of the past that’s been the Crescenta Valley’s claim to fame. An expired Los Angeles County conditional use permit (CUP) is all that’s holding up motel owner Jacques Massachi’s plans to demolish the structure and construct a 40,000-square-foot retail and office building on the lot at the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Briggs Avenue.

Say it ain’t so! (“Strip mall still coming” — Crescenta Valley Sun, Jan. 11). Upon reading that the historic and charming May-Lane/La Crescenta Motel on the corner of Foothill and Briggs is going to be turned into yet another strip mall — another stucco scar on the boulevard — I threw down the newspaper in frustration and disgust. Now, after stewing over this latest depressing development (pun intended) for a few days, I’m wondering: Why stop at simply cramming another unnecessary retail strip mall with too few parking spaces and too many non-English-language signs?

A few weeks ago, I mentioned to a friend I was working on a story about medical marijuana usage among seniors and the challenges they face using it in assisted living facilities for real, debilitating ailments. In turn, she mentioned to me that she was thinking of going to get a recommendation from a doctor to begin using cannabis for debilitating migraine headaches she'd had for some time. I jumped at the chance to accompany her. In the course of my reporting, I had attended cannabis club meetings for seniors in Orange County, driven to Oakland to visit the largest marijuana dispensary in the United States and attended classes with those who were looking to start their own collective, but I hadn't gone to see the process of getting a doctor's referral for myself.

SOUTH GLENDALE — Two men who pretended to be customers Tuesday afternoon at a dry cleaning shop on Broadway handcuffed one of the shop’s owners and demanded cash, one of the owners said. No injuries were reported as store owner Suzan Tenekedjyan and her husband tried to make sense of the apparent robbery. Both were working at their shop, Broadway Cleaners, when a man walked in about 12:50 p.m. carrying several pieces of clothing, she said. She didn’t think much about the man at first, but he later appeared to be nervous, she said.
