"I do attend a lot of community functions, so they must see me everywhere," Anderson said of how Schiff's staff knew of her. Anderson was reelected to her second term as city treasurer in February.

Mark R. Madler Sue Wittick has been riding horses on the trails in Griffith Park for 20 years and until recently, enjoyed taking evening rides there. That changed when signs went up announcing that a mountain lion is living in the park. Caution has become the watchword for some members of the equestrian community in Burbank and Glendale, although they recognize that the mountain lion has not attacked anyone. "I stay close to the freeway part of the park now," said Wittick, who lives in Glendale and is a horse trainer.
