Hillside development proposals past, present and future were the topic for this month's meeting of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley. The main speaker for the evening was Marc Stirdivant, a founder of the VOICE (Volunteers Organized in Conserving the Environment) organization, which spent several years fighting the proposed Oakmont V development. Stirdivant said he had never been a community activist before moving to Glendale. "I couldn't even tell you who my council members were," he said.

So the day of the debutante ball dawned rainy and cold. As provisional chairman of the 2004 Debs (easiest job of them all), I felt like my committee chairs had done their jobs wonderfully and NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG NOW. Hubris. I'd arranged hair and make-up appointments for Claire and myself with Marja Webster (makeup artist par excellence) at Borelli's in Beverly Hills. Decadent, but a very special occasion (I rationalized). Looking FABULOUS! we stopped at In-and-Out for lunch prior to my planned dropping her off at Oakmont for her 4:15 photography appt.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Though she had never before played at Oakmont Country Club, Jocelyn Chia was undaunted in her approach. By the time Chia completed her 18-hole round during the local qualifying tournament of the Trusted Choice Big I Junior Classic on Tuesday afternoon, one might have had a difficult time believing she hadn't played at the 89-year-old venue. Chia came through in her first test at the fabled course, as she fired a three-under-par 70 to win the girls' division of the event.

Hard to believe but Christmas day is just six days away! There just wasn't enough time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to get everything done and I'm still scrambling. It has been parties, parties and more of the same. It is a jovial season and the celebrations go on and on. I'll try to catch you up on some of the events happening in our foothill community. --- Last Sunday night The Oakmont League of Glendale held its annual Christmas party. It was a beautiful evening, planned expertly by Carolyn Beaton and her committee.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Having just finished competing in the NCAA Championships in Oklahoma as a member of the Arizona State University men's golf team, Scott Pinckney quickly shifted his focus to something he had long sought to accomplish — qualifying for the prestigious U.S. Open. It's been a busy last week for the senior, but patience and a consistent short game helped him achieve his goal. Pinckney shot a two-round score of 137 to tie for first with Matthew Edwards on Monday in a sectional qualifying round for the major championship at fabled Oakmont Country Club.

Slowly, ever so slowly, we are crawling into the dog days of summer. The weather, just as the Greeks and Romans scripted them, is hot, humid and sometimes evil. This time of the year, according to an ancient storyteller, "the sea boiled, the wine turned sour, dogs grew mad and all other creatures became languid. " I know first hand about the languid part; when it is hot and humid I don't want to move a finger. Yes, I might even growl if I am provoked. In all seriousness, various sources report that the saying "dog days of summer" came from a Greco/Roman belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, was somehow responsible for the hot weather.

I love clouds and we hardly ever get them here. Last Thursday we had flotillas of fabulous, puffy white clouds that plied the ocean of bright blue sky. They were propelled by wind gusts that made them appear that they had rockets on them. They were moving so quickly they almost made me dizzy. Anyway, I did enjoy the cloud show while I made my way about the community running errands. --- Also last Thursday, the Oakmont League of Glendale held a pretty exciting fundraising event.

All aboard! This New Year's train is leaving the station and chugging into February with a carload of hearts and flowers. There was one more televised award show to tide me over until the Academy Awards airs on March 2. It was the music industry's evening to shine this past Sunday night. The Grammy extravaganza is always fun with a lot of surprises, be it the voluminous gowns to hardly any clothes at all or edgy musical performances to traditional. Pink swung from the rafters in a tiny costume, singing the entire time.

We have reached the middle of the first month of this new year - went pretty quickly, huh? I finally got around to taking my Christmas decorations down. I love this holiday so much that I take my own sweet time in putting away the ornaments that I have collected from all over the world. Each ornament is wrapped in tissue paper and carefully laid in a container until next year. However, I can't say that my neighbors are too eager to give up this holiday, because their houses are still lit up like it was Christmas Eve. This is a strange part of the year and it seems like many of our community members are hibernating and recharging their batteries.
