Jan Detanna grew up singing along with his brother’s 1950s records and came to love the doo-wop sound. “It was embedded in me at a young age — at probably 6, 7 or 8,” he said. Little did the La Crescenta resident know he’d be performing it years later, and at a major concert venue. Detanna will join the other members of the a cappella group Deke & the Blazers on Saturday night at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. They are part of “The Ultimate Doo-Wop Show” produced by Canterbury Productions that showcases 11 groups and travels to various concert venues throughout the country.

My goodness we are already into the dog days of summer, having experienced some sizzling days of triple-digit thermometer readings. However, unlike residents of the East Coast, we are blessed with cool nights. No, we don't have those magical lightning bugs to enchant us so we won't complain about how hot the night is. But in their place, I will accept an occasional mosquito bite and a heavenly cool breeze after the sun sets every summer night. These are busy times in and around our community and we certainly do enjoy our outdoor summer-evening concerts.

The little goblins were howling at my house on Sunday. It seemed that there were a record number of trick-or-treaters that were filling up their candy sacks this "All Hallows Eve. " Ballerinas, princesses, bumble bees, Draculas, and wolf men came knocking at my door. There was a host of unworldly specters that were also there to ward off the evil spirits — all in good fun and for the love of candy, of course. My three grandkids (Aidan, Lucan and Morgan Neely) who are living in England, were feel candy-deprived because the holiday is not celebrated there in their wee hamlet outside of London.

Ten Years Ago A community meeting was called by local developer Ted Slaught to discuss his intent to put a retail development at the northwest corner of Foothill Boulevard at Commonwealth Avenue, an eyesore of a property where a Mobil gas station and Napa Auto Parts store had done business in years past.

In a year-end tradition, the La Cañada Council PTA and its various school-site PTAs on Monday held their joint installation breakfast, which this year featured a new twist: Several students were invited to present programs that had captured their attention during this past school year. Called "Spotlight on Students," the program in past years was held separately from the PTA installation and didn't garner much attendance, said Pam Knapp, outgoing president of the Council PTA. The showcase was abandoned for a couple of years due to school testing schedules but resumed this year.
