There were some unhappy residents from Paradise Valley Tuesday night after the Planning Commission approved a second floor addition to a home on Ocean View Boulevard. Many residents from the area along the western boundary of La Cañada had been fighting the proposed project for months, maintaining it would damage local views, invade privacy and clash with the surrounding properties, all built by one developer. A petition with 37 names was turned in to oppose the project, and residents including Sheila Hanson, Jerry Berkman and Patty Randall spoke against it. Standing against his neighbors was Richard Atwater, a former planning commissioner and the immediate next door resident.

A few days ago I got an e-mail from Italy, which said: “You’ve had fire, floods, drought, now an earthquake. What else?” It was from a friend, and I know the concern was genuine. But around the world there is surely a feeling that in Southern California we are getting payback for having been a little too smug about the climate. Of course, there is a lot to be smug about. Other e-mails that have come in recent months have talked of devastating floods in the East, snowstorms in Rome and trains immobilized in the tunnel under the sea between England and France because of freezing weather, not to mention those Himalayan villagers who, because of disagreement among the scientists, don’t know if their glaciers are receding or expanding.
