Hoover High ‘H’ survives apparent prank
A week before the long-standing rivalry football game between Hoover and Glendale high schools, the ‘H’ on the hillside above Brand Boulevard appears to have been vandalized.

LA CRESCENTA — Citing confusion among potential voters and less-than-encouraging signs at public forums, the Foothill Municipal Water District has postponed a $20-million bond ballot measure proposed to finance the development of local groundwater supplies and fund improvements of the system’s aging pipe infrastructure, district officials said Wednesday.
