Historical Society Offers
Birds Eye View
For those who have wondered what their house looked like 50, 70, or even 90 years ago, at its next meeting the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley will present a series of highly detailed aerial photos of the Crescenta Valley ranging from 1922 to 1969. These images are enlarged onto a projection screen to such detail that you can see individual people in their yards.
The meeting is on July 16 at 7 p.m. at the
La Crescenta Center for Spiritual Living at Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta avenues.

Motion for Ballot Question
In light of the criminal investigation into the activities of the Los Angeles County Tax Assessor and his office, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich’s motion to place an advisory question on the November ballot asking the voters if the Los Angeles County Assessor should be an appointive instead of an elective office was approved.
If a majority of the voters support the change, then the board would seek state legislation to change the law.
In April, the district attorney obtained warrants, and the homes and offices of the assessor and a tax lobbyist were searched for evidence of illegal activity. Currently being held on $1.5 million bail, a former Los Angeles County deputy assessor was arrested on May 21 in Oregon and charged with falsifying department documents and unlawfully lowering property values of multi-million dollar homes and businesses in exchange for campaign contributions for the assessor.
