Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Monday
One of our tipsters spotted Council Member Wendy Greuel at a local drug store this weekend. Wendy is probably the favorite Council Member here at the Sister City, as she seems to be the member who seems to have the most common sense and to be the most ethical. We can at least attest to that at the drug store, Wendy DID NOT park in the handicapped space in her City owner exempt hybrid vehicle. As a matter of fact, Wendy parked quite a ways across the parking lot just like anyone else. Way to go, Wendy.

If you travel over Laurel Canyon in your daily commute, you may want to take an alternate route Monday morning. The area is threatened by soggy hillsides, and though street crews hope to have at least one lane in each direction open for the morning commute, rains expected overnight Sunday/Monday could threaten that. (By the way, had we built the Laurel Canyon Freeway, we'd never have this mess.)
