Best Friends Animal Society is hosting California's largest pet adoption festival on Sun., June 4th, from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. at Manchester Park, W. 7000 Manchester Ave. at the intersection of Lincoln Blvd., in Westchester. More than 1,000 homeless dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and parrots from over 60 rescue groups and Los Angeles shelters will be up for adoption. Animals up for adoption will represent a wide variety of breeds, sizes, and personalities. Each animal has its own unique story - some have been rescued from mistreatment or abandonment, some have never known a home other than a shelter or foster home, and all are in need of loving families to adopt them.

From the Editor's Desk by Carol Cormaci This week's news that La Cañada Properties has tapped Darren Mattix to develop its acreage in the heart of the downtown commercial area should be welcomed on all fronts. Mattix is a local man who participated in the community workshops that preceded the November 2000 adoption of the Downtown Village Specific Plan. He's lived here for nearly a decade, has upscale retail development experience in Beverly Hills, and a warm personality that was sorely missing in the last Sport Chalet development go-around.

A recent newspaper ad in the Valley Sun began: ?Found cat /cast on leg.? The feline was found nearly three months ago at La Cañada High School, according to the ad; however, calls to the number listed with the ad were never returned. ?Purrhaps? the cat has been returned to its rightful owner. But, many other cats and dogs around the area ? some injured or mistreated ? are still waiting in local pet shelters or foster homes for someone to claim them. That?s why some kindhearted animal lovers have created rescue organizations to, if necessary, nurse the animals back to health and find new homes for the deserving pets.

A resident who made several costly renovations to his Greenridge Drive home without acquiring the necessary building and safety permits was denied a last-ditch effort to keep his home office Monday night, when the La Cañada Flintridge City Council adopted a resolution dictating the return of the home to its pre-existing condition. The resolution was the result of a March 3 appeal hearing held at the last council meeting, in which members discussed which parts of homeowner Shaker Eissa's years-long illegal renovations would be allowable and which would have to be undone.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were thrust upon California public schools without parental consent. Why? This is because the federal government wants to have a uniform system of education for which millions was given to states for implementation. The purpose is to make students college and career ready - concepts that remain to be defined. The curriculum will have every child read the same books, and learn at the same rate. Concerns arise due to the fact that CCSS was never tested before the mass implementation across the country.

Anyone who has ever truly felt the Christmas spirit knows the essence of gratitude is giving and sharing with others, and fostering the human connection to which the holiday's namesake dedicated the full force of his life. On Wednesday, several fathers from in and around La Cañada got to share that magic with their own children, while across town kids they'd never met opened gifts under Christmas trees and families sat down to holiday meals that had been provided courtesy of their kindness.

The La Cañada Unified School District came out of contract negotiations this year with the La Cañada Teacher’s Association with a new process established to deal with parent complaints about teachers. The new contract gives district principals the chance to act as a mediator between both parties when approached by a parent who has a complaint. Previously, parents were first sent directly to the teacher when they approached a principal with a concern. “This is a win-win for parents and teachers,” said Cindy Wilcox, a LCUSD Governing Board member.

It became clear that cutbacks may be in the La Cañada Unified School District’s near future on Tuesday night, as the Governing Board discussed the second interim financial report and the possibility of laying off teachers and increasing class sizes significantly in the primary grades. A total of 15 district staff members — six full-time employees and nine temporary positions — will have to come off the books if the district wants to remain solvent for the next two years, according to a budget scenario provided by Stephen Hodgson, LCUSD's financial consultant.

Jan Magnusson opened her door one day to find a kitten sitting on her door step. The cat, now named Munchkin, had an eye infection and was in serious need of medical attention. Luckily, Munchkin had found its way to the right place. Indeed, it's not uncommon for cats to come under the care of Magnusson, the founder of Happy Strays Cat Rescue, a not-for-profit organization. "We take in stray and abandoned cats, mostly kittens, that people don't want anymore. We provide medical care for the cats that need it, that's why we're a little bit short right now," said Magnusson, whose organization has facilitated 984 cat adoptions since its founding in 2006, including 185 this year.

Memorial Park's function as a meeting place was the same on Saturday, but on a deeper level. Kidsave, a nonprofit organization based out of Culver City, chose La Cañada as the site for a weekend event where older orphaned and abandoned children could form lifelong connections with families. "The goal of these events is to engage the families and the kids," said Lauren Reicher-Gordon, Kidsave's vice president and director of their Family Visit Program. "We do activities the families can do with them instead of just observing them."

People who work, but don’t live, within the La Cañada Unified School District will be able to more easily enroll their children in local schools under a new policy adopted Tuesday. The district’s Governing Board adopted the changes, which would relieve out-of-district residents from securing permission of their home school districts to send their students to La Cañada schools, in an effort to curb declining enrollment. The new policy should help families send their students to La Cañada schools since home districts, which receive funding from the state based on student enrollment, often refuse to release students to other districts, officials said.
