• Tobacco Report and a Grenade Scare in the SGV


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – About two-thirds of all cities and counties in the
    state, including 52 in Los Angeles County, received failing grades in an annual
    report released today by the American Lung Association rating policies to
    restrict smoking and sales of tobacco products.

    The city of Los Angeles received an overall C grade, despite being
    credited with steps taken to provide more smoke-free environments.
    Despite the large number of F grades in the county, Glendale and South
    Pasadena were among nine cities statewide to receive an overall grade of A.
    Baldwin Park, Burbank, Pasadena and Santa Monica each earned a B.
    In Orange County, Santa Ana earned a D, while Anaheim earned an F. An
    overwhelming majority of Orange County cities — 31 — received an F grade.
    According to the report, California cities and counties earned mixed
    results, even though the state used to be a national leader on tobacco-control
    policies.
    ‘It’s time to raise the grade,’ Jane Warner, president and CEO of the
    Lung Association in California, said. ‘Strong state and local tobacco control
    policies must be a top priority for our elected officials.’
    The report rates cities in the areas of providing smoke-free outdoor
    environments, smoke-free housing and reducing sales of tobacco products.
    PASADENA (CNS) – A sheriff’s bomb squad removed a grenade from a
    Pasadena home today, and no one was hurt, authorities said.
    The object was discovered shortly before 10 a.m. in the 300 block of
    Parke Street, and some evacuations were ordered, the Pasadena Police Department
    reported.
    Explosives experts removed the item about noon, and residents were
    allowed back into their homes, police said.
