Members of the La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission considered major changes to the zoning codes and permit requirements within the city?s commercial district at Tuesday?s meeting. City planner Fred Buss explained that the City Council, in light of the current economic crisis, directed the planning department to research and present a potential change to the city zoning code that would loosen restrictions on office space within the Downtown Village Specific Plan (DVSP) adopted by the city in 2000.

Two local Republican clubs have decided to join forces in an effort to strengthen their mission and engage conservative voters. The La Cañada Flintridge Republican Club voted to merge with the Republican Club of the Foothills on Nov. 13.

For more than 30 years the Allen Lund Company has been a part of the transportation industry, and a good neighbor in La Cañada. Allen Lund, founder and president of the company, began his company in downtown Los Angeles but soon found that the area was not the most inviting of locations. "It was a rough area," Lund said. "It was difficult to get people to come down to the office." Lund moved his office to a building in Glendale on San Fernando Road, but didn't stay there long.

Will fortunetellers and psychics be allowed to open shop in highly sought areas of La Cañada Flintridge? The answer might require a crystal ball. For now, the city's Planning Commission has recommended that such businesses be treated as office spaces. The state Supreme Court in 1985 ruled that fortunetelling falls under the category of free speech and cannot be banned. The practice of foreseeing events into the future or predicting information about a person's life, therefore, must be permitted somewhere within the city.

A La Cañada Flintridge property the city once eyed for purchase is currently the topic of discussions between the property owner and several potential buyers. The Flower Creek property, at 1010 Foothill Blvd., has been vacant for at least a year and the owner, local developer Gary Zentmyer, has been discussing its sale with "numerous" parties, Zentmyer said. The 12,000-square-foot parcel appeared on the city's radar screen a little over one year ago. At that time, the city considered purchasing the property, which could have been used to realign Chevy Chase Drive or add more parking, said Robert Stanley, director of community development.

Last year, to better meet the needs of its participants, the annual American Film Market, the world's largest motion picture trade event, moved its show dates from February/March to November. This year, to handle the increased and early responses from film companies around the world to be involved in the 26th AFM at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, event organizers are adding additional office space at the adjacent JW Marriott Le Merigot Hotel. This is only the third time in the last 16 years that the AFM has been held at the Loews Santa Monica that the Le Merigot has been called upon to handle the overflow from its neighbor, but it will set a AFM record for the most exhibitors' space ever needed during the eight-day event, a 10 percent increase over the November 2004 market.

GLENDALE ? With beaming smiles, the Glendale Community College Board of Trustees on Monday formally accepted Bhupesh Parikh's $1 million donation at the Health Science construction site on campus. "This is a wonderful gesture for the college," said Board President Armine Hacopian, holding the check. "Thank you very much." The donation was offered to the Glendale College Foundation in August 2005 to go toward the building currently under construction. The building is scheduled for completion by the end of April and will be used for the first time by students in the fall of this year.

It is fair to say that the single most influential member of this community over the past 50-plus years was Sport Chalet's founder, Norbert Olberz, who died last Friday. Although his obituary appears on the front page of today's paper, an appropriate nod to his stature in town, the article can't possibly capture every nuance of this complicated businessman. It might seem to some that it's disingenuous of me to try to add more here, especially since we had a slightly adversarial relationship as central figure and reporter, respectively, during the ugly year in the late 1990s that he labored to get his preferred vision of a shopping center built on Foothill Boulevard at Angeles Crest Highway.

"Unearthing Sleeping Beasts," the evening that opens the Target Dance Series at the Ford Friday, July 6, culminates the united efforts of three L.A.-based female choreographers: Kate Hutter and two of Dance Magazine's "Top 25 to Watch," Maria Gillespie and Holly Johnston. The three collaborated in the process of dance making — sharing dancers, rehearsal and performing space, creative teams of composers and designers — to produce three world premieres for the Ford stage. "The new works all explore the facets of human nature," says Maria Gillespie.
