The City Council on Tuesday rejected demands from the leader of a prominent Jewish-rights organization for removal of swastika-like designs from 930 street light poles installed in the 1920s, saying they were never meant to be Nazi symbols. Irv Rubin, national chairman of the Jewish Defense League, criticized the city last month, saying the symbols around the base of the ornate green light standards were offensive to Jews and should have been removed long ago.

The storms hit Deukmejian Wilderness Park with the force of a thousand fire hoses, blasting tons of water through the canyon gorges and knocking out two bridges that had led hikers to the Rim of the Valley trail. More than two years after El Nino battered the 702-acre park, the city, citing a lack of adequate funds, has yet to repair the route, the main link to a broader system of trails in the Angeles National Forest. Hikers who venture up the path leading to the valley's rim don't get far.

A burst water main early Sunday caused the evacuation of three homes before firefighters gained control of the rushing water, authorities said. No one was injured in the incident. Glendale police received a report of a water main break at Rustic Lane and Glorietta Avenue about 7:30 a.m. Glendale firefighters arrived at the scene shortly and found a large sinkhole and massive "wall of water" in front of one home, authorities said. Firefighters evacuated six people from three homes.

Federal environmental officials have ordered work to begin on a plant to treat ground water in Glendale after a dispute over cost and responsibility threatened to stall the $61.4-million project. Lockheed, ITT Corp. and Walt Disney Co. are among dozens of firms named by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as being partly responsible for decades of industrial solvents leaking into water underlying a large area of Glendale.

In an unexpected move Tuesday, the City Council unanimously rejected the proposed formation of a citywide fire assessment district on a technical issue, saying time has grown too short to consider the controversial tax. The action halts a proposal that could have levied an annual fee of $25.50 on the typical single-family household and up to $453.50 a year for a heavy manufacturing plant. The assessment district was one of a series of proposals the city was considering to offset an expected $6.

The Glendale and Pasadena city councils agreed last week to share the costs of building a pipeline to carry treated sewage water from Glendale's reclamation plant for use in irrigating parks, schools, golf courses and other public places in the two cities. Donald R. Froelich, Glendale water services administrator, said the agreement will result in a $2.3-million savings over the next 25 years, compared to the cost of building the pipelines independently.

A Catholic high school had the will to solve a growing traffic problem and two local businesses helped provide the way: Pioneer Way, that is. A 600-foot one-way road was opened across from Providence High School--where students call themselves the Pioneers--on Wednesday. It was paid for by the Walt Disney Co.--whose studio is across the street from the campus. The city and nearby St. Joseph's Medical Center donated the land.

Federal funds will be used to make repairs to Park Manor Reservoir and surrounding areas, scorched during a recent fire.

A renovation project that was designed to improve the business climate has instead sparked opposition from local merchants, who say the work has brought their trade nearly to a standstill. In August, city contractors began digging along a two-block stretch of Broadway between Brand Boulevard and Louise Street to install new brick crosswalks and decorative sidewalks.

As the sun began to rouse Glendale resident Elizabeth Molo from her sleep, she heard a low and ominous rumbling. Suddenly, there was a loud pounding at the front door. Molo bolted out of bed and rushed into the street to protect one of the neighborhood's most prized possessions--four antique lampposts. Molo joined about 20 of her neighbors on Marion Drive in the Adams Hills neighborhood Thursday in successfully saving the four lamps from a demolition crew.
