There's a favorite little form of hazing in Sierra Madre. Ask a local for a phone number, and they recite only the last four digits. "Oh, sorry, we only have four numbers in Sierra Madre," they like to say. Insiders know the prefix is 355. Outsiders have to ask. There's a newer prefix--836--but if you have it, you're new in town. The residents of Sierra Madre, snuggled against the San Gabriel Mountains between Pasadena and Arcadia, go to great lengths to define themselves as small-town people.

Slow-growth advocates in three San Gabriel Valley cities--Monterey Park, Alhambra and Sierra Madre--have won victories this week in their efforts to curb development. The Monterey Park City Council unanimously approved a 45-day ban on new apartments and condominiums in the city's most congested areas. The action prohibits the city from issuing building permits on 199 acres zoned for multi-family housing.
