Speaking of pumpkins, Parker’s giant pumpkinsare sporting leaves the size of umbrellas and the vineshave taken over their entire fenced area! Halloween is

Anyway, when the zucchini overwhelms you, chopup some in your salad, sauté some in olive oil withtomatoes and lots of onions, drain and stir in some 
sour cream and top with a little parmesan cheese for areally great veggie dish. Or get out your Cuisinart andgrate some for bread. This one is particularly good.
This recipe originally came from Dorothy Reinhold’scolumn in the Pasadena Star News in 2011. In it, 
she described her son’s ecstasy about the zucchinibread that his 3rd grade Webster Elementary Schoolinstructional aide, Mrs. Corinne Le, had baked and 
brought to share. “It’s soooooo good,” he said, “andshe gave me the recipe. It’s really really good!” Andit is, too! So, thanks Dorothy and Mrs. Le. This is 
the best zucchini bread I’ve ever had. It’s neat to 
think that these third graders got to taste somethingfabulous that a teacher wanted to share. Teachers 
ARE exceptional people!

Applicant: City of Sierra Madre
Project Location: Properties in the City of Sierra Madre, County of Los Angeles, State of California 

The City of Sierra Madre gives notice, pursuant to State of California law, that the Planning Commission will conduct a 
public hearing to consider recommending adoption of Municipal Code Text Amendment 17-05 amending Title 8 of the Health 
and Safety Code, establishing Chapter 8.18 – Vacant Property Registration Requirement. The purpose of the amendment is 
to establish registration and regulation requirements for unoccupied properties in the R-1 Zone (Single Family Residential) 

and other residential buildings. The purpose of the requirement is to protect neighborhoods from the effects of unoccupied 

properties that are not adequately maintained or to address health and safety issues that may arise at the property. The 
registration requirement will identify a responsible party that can respond to health and safety code violations. Following a 
Planning Commission recommendation for approval, the proposed text amendment will be forwarded to the City Council for 
their consideration.

possibility this ordinance will have a significant effect on the environment.

Spoon batter into greased pan. Bake for 55-60minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted nearthe center comes out clean. Cool in the pan or ona wire rack for 10 minutes. When your bread hascooled off a little, cut yourself a slice and sit down andenjoy it with a cup of coffee. You deserve a break after 
all that planting, fertilizing, harvesting, distributing,
baking and cleaning up! This freezes well, too, so youcan double the recipe, which just happens to be inmy book, “A Tablespoon of Love, A Tablespoon ofLaughter.”
