Bea Abbey We don't know what Hwy. 49 in the Gold Country is like now, but some years ago when we RVed that historical area every little town looked hundreds of years old and we presume that they still do. Coloma, Sutter's Creek, Angel's Camp, Columbia, etc. The hills were dotted with old shacks and the "new" look, mobile homes. Anyhow, we stopped at Angel's Camp, the town made famous by Mark Twain and his jumping frogs of Calaveras County. We walked the two blocks of the town and tried to imagine what it was like so long ago. We then traveled on to Columbia, the almost capital of California.

Anita Susan Brenner The phone rang. It was my favorite editor. What’s it about this week? She asked. Postmodernism! I said, excitedly. No way, she said. Write a funny column, But Carol, I whined, I’m not funny. Yes, you are. But Carol, I whimpered, why can’t Joe do it? I got nowhere. It’s obvious Joe is her favorite. The reason for my malaise is that our dog, Miss Audrey Hepburn, a black Lab-Chow mix from the Pasadena Humane Society, misses her boyfriend, Dune.

The recent elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., has prompted the La Cañada Unified School District to thoroughly scrutinize its security infrastructure and procedures. “It makes us painfully aware of how vulnerable we are,” said board Vice President Ellen Multari. President Scott Tracy agreed, saying such tragedies could strike anywhere. “We need to look at our policies, at how we're keeping our students safe. There are too many things that say it could happen here in La Cañada.” After hearing pleas from several concerned parents during Tuesday night's school board meeting, Supt.

The flora being torched by the Williams fire above Glendora is in very different shape than that above La Cañada Flintridge, making a similar blaze in this area unlikely, according to Angeles National Forest officials. Angeles National Forest Acting Resource Officer Justin Seastrand said Wednesday that the thick chaparral and brush fueling the Williams fire was largely cleared out of the La Cañada area by the 2009 Station fire. “There is enough vegetation [near La Cañada] that a fire could burn through there,” Seastrand said.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Last month I enjoyed a meal in the Hoover High School cafeteria, catered by Acapulco. My table mates were strangers, though, like me, they were graduates of the high school. We'd gathered with nearly 100 other grads to work on plans for the upcoming 75th anniversary celebration on May 15. One gentleman talked effusively about the jazz ensemble at the school. His enthusiasm ran very high. Finally, when he stopped for a breath, I asked, "How do you know so much about them?"

Enclosed is a copy of a letter I received yesterday from a Marine Unit in Iraq. The content is so explicit I could not file it away without sharing it. The story began sometime in November 2004 when I read an obituary in our Daily News of the death of Marine Lance Corporal Nick Anderson. I was not acquainted with Nick but was so touched by his obituary which included the mailing address for his unit in Iraq and a request to send certain items to his unit in Nick's memory in lieu of flowers.

When I think about Roy Choi, I miss my friend, Laura Canales. Choi is the Korean-American, Los Angeles chef who reinvented the food truck with his gourmet Kogi BBQ Korean taco trucks. He is the author of “L.A. Son,” a thoughtful cookbook/autobiography. Laura was a La Cañada Flintridge resident, past president of the Thursday Club and gourmet home-fusion chef. As a Greek American, Laura knew feta, tiropitakia and mint like the back of her hand. When she married into the Canales family, her culinary repertoire skyrocketed.
