California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown Thursday declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles County due to a series of high-powered storms that battered the Southland this week and forced the evacuation of more than 500 homes in local foothill communities. Five days of inclement weather has snarled traffic, hampered air travel and forced the closure of schools. In the Station fire burn areas, public safety officials continued to sound alarm bells even as the fourth and most powerful rainstorm began to break Thursday night.

GLENDALE — A push by Los Angeles County to free up access to landfills for mud excavated from foothill debris basins is not expected to impact the main site in Glendale, officials said. As mud dumping sites reach capacity, county officials have been scrambling to find places to store large amounts of dirt, especially with more rain on the horizon. The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday directed officials to seek temporary fee waivers from state and city agencies to dump the dirt at landfills in an effort to minimize costs.

Los Angeles County flood control officials presented several options for removing built-up debris and mud from a basin above Devil's Gate Dam in northern Pasadena in a draft environmental impact report released Thursday . The basin became choked by mud and debris after the 2009 Station fire and storms that followed. Flood control officials have warned for years that the buildup compromises the dam's ability to contain debris and floodwater in another major storm, the Los Angeles Times reported . Officials say locations downstream from the dam along the Arroyo Seco that could be in danger of flooding include the Rose Bowl, 110 Freeway, neighborhoods in Pasadena and South Pasadena, and the northeastern Los Angeles communities of Highland Park, Hermon, Montecito Heights, Mount Washington and Cypress Park.

Recently the La Cañada Flintridge Trails Council earned recognition for completing a 12-mile loop of trails around the city. It is nice to see the volunteers rewarded for their arduous, decades-long effort. That's because La Cañadans and visitors are rewarded every day by the work the Trails Council, the city, county and state lawmakers put in to design, fund and build the loop trail. People on horseback, bike seat and running shoe move through the corridors - former City Councilman Greg Brown called them “linear parks” - that snake through the city and reach parks and hiking trails on the city's perimeter.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge last week cited budget and staffing cuts before postponing the sentencing of a Glendale man who pleaded no contest to possessing child porn and an assault rifle. Appearing frustrated inside his courtroom, Superior Court Judge William Ryan said recent budget cuts to the court system were taking their toll on overworked staff, and said it was the reason he had only just received papers from the defense team for Walter Loustari. The paperwork had been filed at the downtown court Wednesday.

A state appeals court on Tuesday reinstated murder charges against the driver who lost control of his big rig last year, killing two people in La Cañada Flintridge at the base of the steep Angeles Crest (2) Highway. In overturning a lower court decision to throw out the charges, a panel for the California 2nd District Court of Appeal on Tuesday ruled there was sufficient evidence to suggest that Marcos Barbosa Costa was aware of the “great risk” involved as he drove his five-axle truck down the Angeles Crest Highway on April 1 last year.
