La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso replaced her gavel for a shovel Thursday, planting a new tree in Glenola Park as part of the annual Arbor Day celebration.
Olhasso was joined by mayor pro tem Don Voss, Los Angeles County Deputy Forester Tamara Hanna, as well as a dozen community leaders, in planting the crape myrtle sapling, which will bloom in August.
La Cañada traditionally celebrates Arbor Day in April, but delayed the event by several months. The city had to get the tree planted before the end of the year in order to retain its status as a Tree City U.S.A.
“I think it is a really great way to celebrate,” Olhasso said.

Pretty neat.

Burbank City Councilman David Gordon on Tuesday called on his colleagues to direct the city manager to place Police Chief Tim Stehr on administrative leave amid an FBI investigation into police misconduct and a growing stack of lawsuits against the city.
Citing the recent public suicide of police Sgt. Neil Thomas Gunn, who was named in an FBI probe into police misconduct along with several other officers, Gordon said the City Council had a “moral and legal responsibility” to place Stehr on leave until the investigations were concluded.

With sirens ringing and horns blasting, a brigade of Glendale police officers and firefighters went to 12-year-old Patrick Aghaian’s North Glendale home Tuesday night to show support for one of their youngest fans.

While he hasn’t gone outside his home, Patrick has watched his bustling neighborhood from his home window.
Of the groups, Patrick said he has most enjoyed watching Glendale police and fire at work.
