A cold front originating in the Gulf of Alaska delivered periodic rain showers to La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday and left the San Gabriel Mountains dusted with snow. The forecast for the storm led to the closure of Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon to Angeles Crest Highway, and of a portion of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Some La Cañada areas interfacing with the Station fire debris flow area prepared for the storm with sandbags. But no significant rainfall totals were recorded, with Descanso Gardens reporting 0.07 inches as of Tuesday afternoon.

Do you remember the origin of catch-22? In Joseph Heller's World War II masterpiece it's whereby following the rules to solve a problem you go around in a circle and come back to the original problem. Thus Doc Daneeka turns down Yossarian's plan to plead insanity so as to be excused from flying dangerous missions. “You mean there's a catch?” “Sure there's a catch,” Doc replies. Anyone who wants to be excused from flying dangerous missions, he explains, can't be insane.

Marcos Costa, the big-rig truck driver convicted of manslaughter in a 2009 fatal crash in La Cañada Flintridge, has dropped his appeal, according to his attorney. Costa, 46, was sentenced in 2011 to seven years and four months in prison. Palmdale resident Angel Posca, 58, and his 12-year-old daughter, Angelina, died on April 1, 2009, after Costa's truck, which lost its brakes, slammed into Posca's vehicle on Angeles Crest Highway before crashing into a building on Foothill Boulevard.

I'm with Anita Brenner (“ Protect the threatened persimmon trees ,” Around Town, Jan. 10). I was appalled to read that the city Planning Commission plans call for the destruction of potentially productive trees on acreage tucked away on the northern edge of town, along the Angeles Crest Highway. I'm a longtime resident of La Cañada Flintridge and I understand that the respect for our rural heritage is one of the most charming and appealing attributes of our community (along with our outstanding academic achievement)
