It is with mixed emotions that YMCA of the Foothills CEO Larry Hall will move his family to the Seattle area in the next few weeks, he said in an interview shortly after announcing his retirement last Thursday. ?There are a lot of giving people in these communities. Working with so many great leaders in the community has been a great experience I won?t forget,? Hall said. Hall was honored at a retirement luncheon last week and gathered again Monday afternoon with a group of friends, co-workers and family members at the Crescenta-Cañada Y for a less formal retirement party.

Annie Burton has become the first student at La Cañada High School in memory to gain admission to the University of Oxford as a full undergraduate. The LCHS senior will begin her studies in modern history and politics at the British institution in October. Burton's successful application culminates a rigorous 12-week process which began last September. The process involved two application forms, multiple writing samples, a six-part essay test and an oral examination with an Oxford professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

Our sportswriter Andrew Shortall stood at my office doorway Tuesday night looking worried. He told me he had been retrieving team reports from the La Cañada Baseball/Softball Association website so that we could run them in this week’s paper when he came across something that disturbed him. What he came across was this, written by LCBSA volunteer coach Scott Comstock: “The White Sox put up a good battle against the Red Sox for 3 innings before...

As a reward for being named La Cañadan of the Year, Terry Walker received plenty of praise Wednesday afternoon - even if she had to withstand a bit of ribbing on the way. More than 100 people came to the La Cañada Kiwanis Club's tribute to Walker at Descanso Gardens, including four City Council members, Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Capt. David Silversparre and Walker's parents, who were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. Walker, whose accomplishments include three years as president of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce, launching the weekly farmers market, adding snow and reindeer to the Festival in Lights, and helping at her husband Woody's pet clinic, knew she was in for a roast.

Ian McFeat started racking up passport stamps early. The new La Cañada High School principal was born in England and lived in South Korea before settling in Washington state with his family at the age of 8. His father worked for the military in a civilian capacity, and his mother taught at U.S. Department of Defense schools. Degrees at Pacific Lutheran University led to stints teaching social studies in middle and high schools. McFeat then shifted into administration, most recently serving as vice principal of Kentlake High School, southeast of Seattle.

I try to approach restaurants with impartiality but the cold hard truth is I don't like cupcakes. The white sugar, white flour, and unnatural colors turn me off. They're the adult version of Barbie dolls. I prefer my sweets more rustic. So when Goodie Girls Cupcakes opened their second store in La Cañada (the first is in Glendale on Broadway), a store decked out in bright pink stripes and mini-chandeliers, I stayed away. But in the interest of readers who do like the treat and because I needed some energy for more Christmas shopping, I stopped in for a holiday-themed cupcake.

The deodar cedar is not native to La Cañada Flintridge, but the tree's deep roots in the city might save it. City Council members on Monday decided to hold off on approving a simplified tree ordinance, which would have removed deodar cedars, California peppers and Chinese elms from the city's protection. But after one resident argued that the deodar was historically significant to the city, especially in the Alta Canyada neighborhood, officials reconsidered their decision. Bob Craven said he wasn't aware that officials had voted to remove the deodar from the protected tree list until he read an article in the Valley Sun. “By removing that deodar from protection, the council will be taking an action that goes against the history and the visual beauty of our particular residential area,” he told council members.

Capt. Clark extended his hand. “Take a seat left-tenant,” he said. I did, opposite him on an 81-Mike-Mike ammo crate. He brought me up to speed on enemy movements, their strength, weaponry and combat readiness. We were operating 20 clicks from Phouc Tuy, and the intelligence would prove to be fortuitous. With devilish good looks, Clark was an image from a Kipling novel. He was an Aussie, SAS (Strategic Air Service). The Viet Cong called them ma rung , phantoms of the jungle.
