Come to Los Angeles where it's pretty much OK to do whatever you please. Do you want to park your car on your front lawn? No problem! Do your dogs bark constantly day and night? They all do here! Do you prefer to throw your trash on the ground instead of in a waste can? Welcome! You're not allowed to spit on the sidewalks in San Marino? Neighbors around here urinate on our sidewalks.

About 70 anti-foreclosure activists gathered Saturday afternoon outside the San Marino home of Wells Fargo Chief Financial Officer Tim Sloan, testing a city law against political protest in residential areas that was enacted after a previous demonstration at the bank executive's house. Members of Occupy Fights Foreclosures and the nonprofit Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment staged a circular picket line in the 1300 block of Woodstock Road for about an hour. The group dispersed quickly and without incident after San Marino police declared the assembly unlawful.

San Marino's Huntington Drive is in for a dramatic face-lift next year under a city plan to cut down 35 decades-old ficus trees that business owners blame for damaging sidewalks and buildings, leaving messy droppings and obscuring signs. But not everyone is happy to see the trees go. Some residents argue that the large-canopy ficus provide valuable shade and contribute to San Marino's character. Trees along the south side of Huntington between Kenilworth and Del Mar avenues, and on the north side of Huntington from Kenilworth to Ridgeway Road, are targeted for removal.

Most residents overwhelmingly oppose allowing two unincorporated Los Angeles County neighborhoods to become part of San Marino, a city-sponsored "straw poll" shows. City officials said the survey, taken through the city's newsletter, showed that 83% of those who responded oppose accepting the smaller of the two San Pasqual Street neighborhoods seeking annexation. Even more--96%--were against accepting the larger adjacent neighborhood that is trying to get in.

Shortly after a German-born man who posed as a Rockefeller was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison, Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter continued to insist he did not murder his San Marino landlady's son. Gerhartsreiter, 52, was convicted in April of murdering 27-year-old John Sohus with a blunt object in 1985. Sohus' body was found in 1994, buried three feet deep behind a guest house where Gerhartsreiter had been living on the Lorain Road property. Sohus also lived there with his mother and wife, Linda, who disappeared at age 29 and has never been found.

A German-born fabulist who masqueraded as a member of the Rockefeller family was sentenced Thursday to 27-years-to-life in prison for killing his San Marino landlady's son in 1985. Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, acting in his own defense, addressed the court before sentencing and blamed the slaying of 27-year-old John Sohus on the man's wife, Linda. "I want to assert my innocence," said Gerhartsreiter, wearing a blue jail jumpsuit with his hands cuffed in front of him. "I firmly believe that the victim's wife killed the victim, but, be that as it may … I did not commit the crime.
