We were deep in the bowels of Number One Valley Sun Lane. There were four of us. One of us was a dog. Another was anonymous. It was me, the Editor, Miss Audrey Hepburn (the dog) and the Anonymous Source. The Editor was incredulous, as editors are wont. “You want to write about how Bugsy Siegel did not get arrested? Was Bugsy Siegel even here in 1926?” No, I said. It was a different Benjamin Siegel who was arrested in Flintridge. The Anonymous Source sprang to my defense.

It’s started again. It seems the La Cañada Flintridge City Council can’t avoid the flying feathers when this city’s residents get passionate about their poultry. In an appeal of an animal waiver denial, the City Council Monday night heard the pleas of Oakwood Avenue residents Holger and Elizabeth Besch, who hope to build a chicken coop on the edge of their property to house their 4-to-6 laying hens. According to the code standards recently adopted by the city, the lot size of the Besch property is adequate to allow up to six chickens.

The planning commission at its meeting last week postponed action on a request to legalize an over-height barbecue unit at a home on Castle Road. The unit, which includes a wet bar, is 6-foot, 8-inches high, and is located only one foot from the rear property line. It was constructed without city permit. Staff recommendation was for denial of the encroachment permit. In other business, the commission revisited a property on Buena Vista Drive that was the location of two previous commission actions that sparked controversy.

The planning commission on Dec. 12 took a look at the issue of whether chicks and ducks and geese can scurry around the backyards of La Cañada, and sent the matter back to staff for further consideration. The issue of whether farm fowl and other animals should be allowed in residential districts was referred to the commission by the City Council, after a council review of a project to allow a batting cage at a local home. Incidental to the cage issue were neighborhood complaints over a chicken coop on the property in question.

A months-long cockfight over a proposed backyard chicken coop came to an end Monday as the La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted 5-0 to deny a side yard setback variance that would have allowed the installation of a coop to go forward. Holger and Elizabeth Besch, who live at 5128 Oakwood Ave., had hoped to build an 8 x 17 x 7 feet hen house in the southeast corner of their backyard. On March 11, they applied for and were granted a setback variance that would allow them to build within a few feet of their neighbor?

A La Cañada Flintridge woman is raising concerns about local response to encounters with potentially dangerous local wildlife in the wake of a confrontation last week with a California black bear. There have been multiple bear sightings recently in La Cañada hillside neighborhoods, said Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station Capt. Dave Silversparre, but none of those incidents have posed a level of danger to residents that would require removal of the bear. According to local Chamber of Commerce President Pat Anderson, a bear has been frequenting her Paradise Valley neighborhood weekly for at least four months.

So I’m outside, busting my butt, fixing sprinklers and pulling weeds, when all of a sudden Simone yells from the top of her lungs, “Daddy can I have a chicken?” “What?” “Can I have a chicken?” she repeats. Now mind you, my hearing is not the best. Probably has something to do with that 122mm rocket that exploded on top of my head. So, somewhat impatiently, I yelled back, “Yeah, sure!” I was thinking, “She wants to have chicken for dinner, but why is she asking me?
