Does Twitter have a valid place in journalism? Or, rather, is it a bland, overwhelming and narcissistic medium, more useful for telling people about your shampoo preference than a way to engage readers? As with most things, the answer lies with whom the Twittering tolls. At its best, the site connects reporters, editors and photographers to sources and readers. Readers gain insight into why and how a story was discovered, reported and illustrated. This is my goal for the La Cañada Valley Sun account, which is ValleySun.

Just when and how much noise will be tolerated in La Cañada could soon be reviewed by the City Council, after a routine discussion Monday on the organization of related regulations revealed some citizens may be lawfully abusing their right to make noise in residential areas. The talk came as the council was asked to vote at its regular meeting to consolidate chapters of the city's municipal code that all pertain to noise but are currently in separate sections. Residents are confused by rules that place different time restrictions on landscaping and construction noises and are located in different parts of the city and Los Angeles County codes, said Peter Castro, a senior management analyst for the city.

The construction of three sound walls along the Foothill (210) Freeway in La Cañada Flintridge is expected to start in the next couple of months. The City Council voted on Monday to accept a bid from Griffith Company for $3.3 million to complete the work. Council members also voted to dip into the city's general fund reserves, if necessary, to close the gap between the budgeted amount for the project and the lowest bid received. An additional $380,425 may be needed to construct all three sound walls, according to a staff report.

Were you howling at the moon last Saturday night? We enjoyed the first full moon of 2013. Not that I usually pay any attention to the names of the full moons throughout the year, but this moon is known as the “Full Wolf Moon.” The Algonquin and Sioux tribes thus named it. Of course I wanted to know why. According to NBC news, “Amid the zero cold and deep snows of mid-winter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the Moon after Yule.” *** Noir Food and Wine restaurant in Pasadena gave a prelude Saturday to the upcoming sixth annual Pasadena PinotFest, which is scheduled for Feb. 9 at Altadena Country Club.

A friend who owns a beach-town condo built all too near the Interstate 5 tells me she deals with the traffic din by pretending it's the sound of ocean waves crashing on rocks. Talk about making the best of a situation. I'm not as imaginative, but admire her ability to conjure up some magical thinking. The noise from the Foothill (210) Freeway not only annoys me, it sometimes alarms me, and I worry that if (when) it gets much worse, we'll not be able to carry on conversations in our own homes.

As Glendale Community College prepares to open its newly expanded Garfield campus for fall classes, some residents say they are losing sleep - literally - over a pair of industrial air conditioners at the site. The two units are located at the south perimeter of the satellite campus at Chevy Chase Drive and Garfield Avenue just inside a 5-foot-tall wall that abuts several homes and apartment complexes. They cool two college buildings, including a new 40,000-square-feet addition that will be unveiled to the public later this month.

Caught between a desire to reduce noise levels along the Foothill (210) Freeway and shortfalls in funding for sound wall construction, La Cañada Flintridge City Council members now appear to favor a piecemeal approach. How things will eventually shake out, however, has everything to do with the wishes of the residents living closest to the freeway. In the coming weeks, city officials will contact 213 homeowners whose properties are most directly impacted by freeway noise to gauge neighborhood interest in the construction of partial sound wall segments as early as next year.

The city of La Cañada Flintridge on Monday painted striping for 53 designated parking spots on Cornishon Avenue, the first step in addressing a litany of concerns aired by residents who live in the immediate vicinity of the sports fields at the former Foothill Intermediate School. "The parking on Cornishon Avenue itself, adjacent to the fields, wasn't being used efficiently," said Carl Alameda, senior management analyst with the city. The designated parking spots will ensure that all available street space is being put to good use, Alameda said.
