Recent local developments have given rise to a new basis for the local slogan (“We're No. 2!”). The slogan is often applied to education, now that LCHS is No. 2 on some, but not all, standardized test results applicable to public secondary schools in a state that does not rank in the top two.
Suddenly, there's a new reason for La Cañadoids to proclaim, “We're No. 2!”
La Cañada Flintridge will soon be home to not one, but two 7-Eleven stores.
When I was a young public defender, we always referred to the chain as “2-Elevens,” because robberies in California are a violation of Penal Code section 211. Obviously we were young, gifted worry warts. There's no evidence that the two new 7-Elevens will add anything to our low (except for the bank robberies) crime statistics.
No need to worry about security, because the 7-Eleven franchise has gone upscale. The corporate website brags, “Lookin' Good, Taquitos! Wake up with fluffy eggs, seasoned sausage and beautiful, beautiful bacon. Or try one of our other delicious varieties. It's never too early for awesome.”
