With the unanimous support of the City Council, Sierra Madre has become the first city in the San Gabriel Valley to ban the sale of inexpensive, cheaply made handguns known as Saturday night specials. Following on the heels of its decision to ban drive-through businesses to preserve the small-town atmosphere, the council Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a ban on the sale of the cheap firearms.

Activists alleged Thursday that a city mailing about a measure on the April ballot that proposes to drop historic designation for 29 properties was sent in violation of state election laws. Linda Thornton, a local attorney, said the mailing was hurriedly sent out Tuesday to the city's 7,500 registered voters after she informed the city in a letter that she would seek a restraining order to prevent its distribution. "No mass mailing can be sent at public expense," she said.

In the latest chapter of a battle over tree trimming, an attorney has charged that the City Council violated the state's open-meetings law when it disbanded a controversial Tree Preservation Commission. Attorney Steven A. Broiles charges in a letter to the city Tuesday that it failed to list the ordinance on the agenda for its Oct. 28 meeting and that the council failed to explain why the item was added at the last minute for an emergency vote.

When Douglas and Donna Sutcliffe tried to put new shingles on their Craftsman home in Sierra Madre two years ago, history shackled their progress. The repair was delayed several weeks because their bungalow is listed on the city's register of historic landmarks--a designation made under an old city law that did not require the Sutcliffes' consent.

After unanimously agreeing to ban Saturday night specials last month, the Sierra Madre City Council backtracked Tuesday night, voting down an ordinance to bar the local sale of the small, cheaply made handguns. Sierra Madre has no gun stores, but agreed to consider the law after the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments urged the 30 cities in the valley to pass bans modeled on ordinances adopted by the cities of Los Angeles and West Hollywood.

Six months after city officials began trying to get day laborers out of Memorial Park, the City Council has unanimously approved prohibiting job solicitations anywhere in the city. The council instructed its staff to come up with an ordinance enacting the prohibition before its Sept. 8 meeting. Residents have complained about the men, most of whom come to Sierra Madre by bus to meet with contractors and residents for temporary employment.

It was just a shingle. A charcoal gray piece of roofing. But in the ongoing fight between homeowners and Sierra Madre's Historic Preservation Commission, the seemingly simple material has become something of a mascot. Sitting in the shade of Donna and Douglas Sutcliffe's once-disputed shingled porch roof, community activist Kathleen Roach discussed a grass-roots initiative to unite homeowners and abolish the preservation commission.

Nestled below Mt. Wilson sits Sierra Madre, a bastion of small-town Americana locked in a self-imposed time warp. This 10,767-strong community with a single police detective and volunteer firefighters is without a modern supermarket, a multiplex theater or a drive-through burger joint. And the City Council is planning to keep it that way. To the apparent delight of its citizens, Sierra Madre on Tuesday night became one of the few cities in the nation to ban drive-through restaurants.
