PASADENA — Thirty-six games into the season and Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam still can't get an accurate read on his team. Milam might have gotten a better read after the Saints suffered a 6-5 loss to the Playa Vista Orioles in an elimination game of the Palomino Southern California Regional Baseball Tournament on Monday night at Jackie Robinson Field. "We are very bipolar when it comes to playing defense," said Milam, whose team committed four errors and will be the third seed from the Southern California Regional in the Palomino West Zone Tournament in Compton beginning Friday.

Over the next 18 months, the environment of the Arroyo Seco will be enhanced with the removal of the parking lot just to the east of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Construction of a parking structure on JPL property will enable removal of the existing 1100-space lot, returning a significant areaback to the natural state of the Arroyo watershed.   In order to construct the new parking structure, it is necessary to temporarily close a hiking trail on JPL property that runs along the lab's eastern fence line.  We appreciate that the trail closure will be an inconvenience to those of our neighbors who use it, and we look forward to reopening the segment on JPL property as soon as possible when construction is completed.  In the long run, removal of JPL's east parking lot will benefit everyone who enjoys the Arroyo's outdoor setting.  Anyone in the community who has questions about the project is invited to contact KimLievense, Manager of JPL's Public Services Office, at (818)

Congressman Adam Schiff is reviving his proposed bill to study a nature conservancy zone around the Rim of the Valley trail, which stretches in concept from the Arroyo Seco to the Conejo Valley. Schiff said he has hopes for more success with the bill this session. "This is our third or fourth time around," he said. "It passed the Senate before, and one time got through committee." The legislation directs the secretary of the interior to study the feasibility of expanding the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area to include the mountains and canyons in Southern California that are part of the Rim of the Valley Corridor, as designated by the State of California.

Entering Burned Area. Trees may fall at any time. Potential hazards include: fallen trees, flash flooding and debris flows. Do not linger under large burned trees. Avoid this area during high winds. Be alert for falling trees. So say the signs on some Angeles National Forest trails, like a warning on one of those commercials for a product that holds loose dentures in place but comes with the risk of a sudden loss of vision, fatal bleeding and other afflictions lasting more than four hours.

In preparation, Pasadena fire crews were spraying a fire retardant on brushy areas along the arroyo's edge, and Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin Wells was warning residents to be careful with use of their own fireworks. Temperatures are expected to reach the 80s and low 90s through the holiday.
