Pasadena has a fork in the road. And it's 18 feet tall. Where south St. John and south Pasadena avenues divide, there's a towering wooden silver fork in the traffic median. The utensil has a black steel skeleton and is rooted in 2 1/2 feet of concrete. The art was originally intended as a surprise for Bob Stane of Altadena, who celebrated his 75th birthday Oct. 29. But Caltrans, which owns the median, and Pasadena, which maintains the land, are deciding whether to keep it up for a while as an impromptu piece of street art. "It was just the best birthday present I've ever had," said Stane, who owns the Coffee Gallery Backstage, a coffeehouse and showroom in Altadena, with the fork's artist, Ken Marshall.

Didn't spot it till it was mentioned by Robinson's sister-in-law Delano, who still lives in that same working-class area between the Rose Bowl and John Muir High. "Did you see the plaque?" she asked. Well, no, even looking for it. Maybe not for a plaque exactly, but something designating this as one of the most historic streets in America.

Pasadena is about to get more fancy trash cans. The City Council approved a work order late Monday night to place 40 self-compacting solar-energy trash cans throughout the city, in addition to the 12 already on the streets. The city is joining Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Boston and Philadelphia in using the trash cans, called BigBelly Solar Compactors, according to the vendor's website. The 40 receptacles will cost $146,550. The trash bins, which first started appearing on Pasadena street corners in 2007, can compact 200 gallons of trash into one 60-gallon "neat" bag, said Gabriel Silva, the environmental programs manager with the city's Department of Public Works.
