Ten Years Ago

Bringing an end to a five-month search, the La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted unanimously to hire Jerry Fulwood, 52, to serve as city manager. Chosen from a field of 54 candidates, Fulwood came to the city from a post as deputy city manager of Rancho Cucamonga.

Twenty Years Ago

Paradise Canyon Elementary School was selected as one of 234 California Distinguished elementary schools. Principal of the Knight Way campus that year was Gloria McGehee-Koel.


Thirty Years Ago

Over the objection of residential neighbors, Flintridge Preparatory School for Boys was given a conditional use permit to operate a 610-seat amphitheater beginning the following school year, when the campus was set to become a coeducational facility.

Forty Years Ago

Young equestrians were readying for the 48th annual Children’s Horse Show at Flintridge Riding Club. To publicize the occasion, an amusing photo that suggests one horse has two heads and two riders was set up for the cover of the Valley Sun by La Cañada residents Larry and Brian Landsbergh.

Fifty Years Ago

Several residents of Alcorn, Palm and Wasatch drives, as well as some in the 1800-1900 blocks of Foothill Boulevard, objected to moving the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA from its then-existing location in La Crescenta to a site in the 1900 block of Foothill in La Cañada. The objections were made known at a hearing before the county zoning board in April 1959.
