For anyone who ever thought that putting up the Haunted Jail at the CV Sheriff's Station was just a real quick thing - throw some camoflauge netting, colored lights and fog machines in there - you're wrong. The volunteers work from early in the morning to late at night. And if that's not enough, some stay until 1 in the morning. From painting sets to rigging up lights, they do it all. The Haunted Jail has been a tradition in La Crescenta for about 10 years, said Deputy Charles Norris, the head of the Search and Rescue and Uniform Reserves, who oversees the Haunted Jail.

Ten Years Ago Officials, using data collected from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, managed Topex/Poseidon satellite, warned that the winter of 1998 would be a very wet one, perhaps one of the wettest of the 20th century, due to El Niño conditions forming in the Pacific Ocean. Twenty Years Ago Sheriff’s Department officials fielded questions at a Sept. 29, 1987 town hall meeting called to discuss the subject of that summer’s consolidation of jail operations at Crescenta Valley and Altadena sheriff’s stations at the CV facility, a cost-saving measure estimated to ease the department’s budget by more than $1.3 million.

Recent changes to state law will result in many theft-related crimes formerly charged as felonies to be handled as misdemeanors. Locally, this means many thieves who commit property crimes in La Cañada Flintridge and surrounding areas will be spending much less time behind bars, and doing so in county jail rather than in state prison, said Capt. Dave Silversparre of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. A bill signed into law last year by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger raised the stolen property value determination needed to trigger felony grand theft charges from $400-plus to $950-plus.

Amid a days-long heat wave and tinder dry conditions, authorities are warning residents to be extra vigilant this Fourth of July holiday. Local authorities say no fireworks are safe and sparklers, which can reach temperatures of more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, can still be dangerous and result in severe burns or spark fires. Fireworks are illegal in La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank and all unincorporated areas of Los Angeles, and authorities this week asked residents to notify public safety officials if they see anything out of the ordinary.

The large Mediterranean-style house still stands, high above Foothill Boulevard. The original owners were Walter and Beulah Overell. In the 1930s and 1940s, Walter Overell was one of the wealthiest men in Flintridge. He made his first fortune in the furniture business. This was followed by other successful investments. Walter doted on his wife, Beulah Jungquist Overell. Walter loved Beulah so much that liked to name things after her. Given the opportunity, he christened Beulah Drive.

A steady stream of visitors walked through the Crescenta Valley Sheriff?s Station on Saturday as they got an up-close and personal look at the men and women who serve at the station. About 400 people visited a variety of booths that gave them a chance to learn about everything from how to join the station?s youth explorer program to water saving tips from Crescenta Valley Water Department. Children?s imaginations came alive as they crawled into the pilot?s seat of Air Six helicopter, got behind the wheel of a patrol vehicle and climbed onto an antique fire engine.
