Building Still Too Tall This is the only condominium/apartment building in the history of Los Angeles County that was built too tall and part of it had to be torn down. L.A. County allowed this building to be built six feet too tall. The code for L.A. County is 35 feet. This structure was 41 feet. Only 115 feet was removed from the front of the building. This was the first of five units on the third floor. My feeling is that the building is still too tall. I have been trying to get the calculations the county used to determine why only 115 feet was removed.

A second-floor review of a proposed 8,032-square-foot home on Princess Anne Road and a proposed three-unit apartment building in the southwest portion of the city will both receive second looks in September as the planning commission Tuesday night continue both hotly- debated projects. The Princess Anne project, which neighbors say is a case of “mansionization,” previously made it past the commission but was sent back by the City Council after neighbors appealed the commission’s approval.

Los Angeles County coroner officials have identified Genny Herrera, 39, as the woman killed in an apparent murder suicide Friday. Department of the Coroner Investigator Sherwood Dixson told the Pasadena Star-News Saturday that the name of other person killed, a 47-year-old La Crescenta man, would not be released until family members had been contacted. In a comments section on the Star-News website, a woman identifying herself as Gabriela Herrera of Pasadena said late Saturday night the victim was her sister-in-law and that the murder had left her 10-year-old niece without a mother.

Last week I wrote about the various ways you can overcome the obstacles of living alone in your home when it has become difficult to take care of all your own needs. Perhaps staying in your home no longer appeals to you. Maybe you are tired of the responsibility of caring for your house and property. Some of you may find it lonely and isolating or because of medical conditions you are in need of special care. In this article I will discuss the various options for ?senior living.

Everyone thought that Mr. Mealey was eccentric. He was a pack rat and a recluse; he saved everything. He had accumulated a kaleidoscope of treasures: bottle caps, old books, tin cans, comics, old tools and toys, stamps, postcards — practically anything that people no longer wanted. I was his only friend. He was the victim of mass psychology and because of mass propaganda he suffered the fate of isolation. He and I would spend countless hours together melting lead that we would cast into toy soldiers, meticulously painting them and giving them life.

A Whole New World Everyone thought that Mr. Mealey was eccentric. He was a pack rat, a recluse; saved everything. He had accumulated a kaleidoscope of treasures; bottle caps, old books, tin cans, comics, old tools and toys, stamps, postcards; practically anything that people no longer wanted. I was his only friend. He and I would spend countless hours together melting lead, which we would cast into toy soldiers, meticulously painting them, giving them life. He gave them all to me. He was an intellect with a powerful mind, and those who would listen would be treated to a verse from Kipling or a tale from King Arthur.

And now, those tremors are being felt in La Cañada, where the 22-year-old grew up.
