An Indianola Way resident whose rooftop holiday decoration display was vandalized just after 8 p.m. on Dec. 10 may have the last laugh after all. Home video security camera footage now in the hands of Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station detectives captured two young men in the act, and investigators are hoping to use the tape to identify the vandals. The footage , obtained by the Valley Sun and posted to YouTube, shows two young men in baggy sweatshirts exit a silver-colored SUV before sneaking up to the house in the 4900 block of Indianola Way and tugging at a stuffed animal that was part of an automated holiday sleigh.

Hanging on the wall at Penelope’s Cafe is a striking black and white photograph of three bearded young men pouring over a movie script. It isn’t just a shot of any three men, however. They are George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and John Milius. And, it isn’t just any script. It is a draft of “Apocalypse Now.” There is nothing ordinary, moreover, about the woman behind the camera. The iconic shot, which has been published many times in books and magazines, is the work of noted still movie photographer and La Cañada resident Gemma La Mana.

When Sierra Prescott got her first professional 35mm film camera in the summer of 2004, she had to pretend to know what all the functions did and how the settings worked so her mother would believe it was a worthwhile $1000 purchase. She took the camera with her on a trip to Hawaii with a friend's family, promising to take numerous family shots and portraits on the scenic beaches. But instead of tropical colors and smiling faces, her film revealed nothing but blank white space when it was developed upon her return back home to La Cañada.

Ramping up its efforts to reduce property loss on its campuses, the La Cañada Unified School District will install up to 10 security cameras at all four school sites as early as this summer. “We are concerned with the vandalism that is going on at the sites,” said Mike Leininger, the district’s assistant superintendent of facilities and operations. “There has been an increase in the theft of copper and brass with the economy going down.” Leininger recalls an incident at the beginning of this year where some brass and large copper pipes were installed.
