Scholl Canyon dump in the San Rafael hills, which serves La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Glendale and Pasadena, could be expanded to extend its operating life beyond 2020. Glendale Public Works officials are looking at the possible change to delay the date by which trash might need to be shipped by train to regional landfills in Riverside and Imperial counties. The city is considering expanding the height or width of the landfill, or both, to expand the operation by as much as 15 years Glendale owns most of the landfill, which sits on 400 acres, and is located north of Glenoaks Boulevard.

The long-debated proposal to study the Rim of the Valley Corridor for possible addition to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation area has passed the House of Representatives. The principal advocate of the study is Rep. Adam Schiff. His bill was folded into a larger measure ordering the Department of the Interior to study various areas for possible preservation.

A local real estate agent once said to me with only a hint of humor in his voice that he was confident he could sell a particular home in the tony Meadow Grove area of our city if he could find the right buyer, specifically one who was deaf, or at least partially so. It seems the beautiful property was beleaguered by the same scourge that has come to wear many of us down: the noise of truck traffic on the 210. Pardon my impatience, but we've...

The Station fire, which started Aug. 26 and continues today to consume much of the vast Angeles National Forest, was not the first fire to threaten this town. There have been others, some of which left devastating marks here, all documented by newspapers including the La Cañada Valley Sun. In November 1933 the San Gabriel Mountains behind La Cañada and La Crescenta were on fire, with the blaze at one point sweeping down along the east side of Pickens Canyon, as thousands of spectators lined Foothill Boulevard to watch the flames shooting hundreds of feet in the air. The Gould Castle then sat prominently at the mouth of Pickens Canyon.
