    Friday | Pasadena Star-News

    A former Pasadena police officer claiming poor training and retaliation caused him crippling anxiety that led to an early retirement has filed a $12 million claim against his former employer. Former Homicide Detective Kevin Okamoto alleges he became unable to perform his job because of a series of investigations and suspensions that led to his peers and the public dubbing him a “liar.” Okamoto said he couldn't focus on anything but the “unsubstantiated allegations of misconduct” and eventually his doctor declared him “mentally unfit” to carry a firearm in February, according to the claim.

Its big sister to the south has a relatively flat Colorado Boulevard to march along, though I suppose the short Orange Grove and Sierra Madre Boulevard parts of the Rose Parade route are uphill.

    Caltrans has received more than 2,500 letters responding to the 710 Freeway extension project, so many that two weeks after the six-month comment period has closed, the state transportation agency is still tallying the responses. Aside from the sheer number and volume, the letters written by mayors and elected officials form a pattern: Those in favor of digging an underground tunnel to close the 4.5-mile gap from the 10 to the 210/134 freeways live south and east of the project, while those opposed live north or within the project footprint.
