PASADENA — Rep. Adam Schiff on Friday announced the start of the long-awaited study of the region's hillsides, which could lead to federal protection of the local area. The announcement was a major milestone for Schiff (D-Burbank), who began lobbying for the so-called "Rim of the Valley" study in 2001. The study was approved as part of federal legislation signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. Two years later, officials allocated $500,000 to begin the study, which will start with an exhaustive public outreach and exploration process this summer.

The couple had gone to the hospital at 11 p.m., and an hour and five minutes later, the child was born. When it comes to babies, my family doesn't mess around. I asked Andrew what he and Susanna had named the baby, and he said they named him David. "Uh, does Susanna have any relatives named David?" I asked. "No, tio, we named him after you," he replied.
