Its neighbors, who helped to compose the audience at the April 5 meeting, remained unenthusiastic about the proposal, however. The design under consideration is a two-story Cape Cod style home with an attached one-car garage and detached two-car garage at 1541 Euston Road.

A 51-year-old San Marino woman has had numerous surgeries at Huntington Memorial Hospital after being struck and pinned by a car in town last week.
At 2:50 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4, as the woman was using an ATM at Chase Bank on Huntington Drive, a 69-year-old Pasadena woman was parking in front of the bank when she struck another car and mistakenly pressed her car’s accelerator instead of its brakes. Her car jumped the curb and pinned the San Marino woman to the ATM by her legs. Continue reading “San Marino Woman Being Treated After Car Pins Her”

Despite protests from residents, the San Marino City Council will continue to allow a home at 1470 Virginia Road to be demolished.
Petitioners tried a second time to save the home at last week’s City Council meeting, where the body was voting on resolutions to uphold its findings regarding the project in January. Council members had, in January, voted 3-2 to both deny a petition that would have designated the home as a local historical landmark and to deny an appeal of the Planning Commission’s decision approving the demolition.

For its 39th annual Paul Harris Fellow Recognition Luncheon, the Rotary Club of San Marino called upon its own ambassador, of sorts, to deliver the keynote address.
And Katarina Mayers, a 2007 graduate of San Marino High School, delivered, giving what amounted to a “thank you” to the Rotary Club for helping to facilitate her post-high school journey that eventually made her an appointee in former President Barack Obama’s administration.
