La Cañada is one tree richer

leave a comment »

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.

The Green was family among more than 100 volunteers who gathered Saturday to prepare commemorative florographs of organ donors for the Donate Life float, which will be entered into the Jan. 1 Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena.

The year 2010 marks 15 years since the Green’s oldest child, Nicholas, was shot while he slept in the back seat of his family’s rental car in Italy while on vacation, the victim of highway robbers.

As seen on TV: the Burbank Leader

leave a comment »

The local ABC affiliate mentioned the Burbank Leader in its report about outgoing Burbank Police Chief Tim Stehr. When journalistic outlets quote another newspaper or a competing station, it’s often because they were unable to get the information themselves. Essentially, ABC7 is acknowledging our exclusive. Pretty neat.

leave a comment »

Chris Topolovich, Sgt. Neil Gunn’s brother-in-law, talks to the media following a Burbank City Council meeting on Tuesday.

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.

VIDEO: Police, firefighters visit homebound fan

leave a comment »

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.

Patrick received a stem cell transplant a year ago and  hasn’t been able to leave his home because of immune-system issues.

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.
