Results of a recent survey of the city’s proposed sewer district No. 6 have been tabulated; however, since the district was split up into 11 sub-sections, and few residents in more than one of the sub-sections, cluster areas, was in favor of any form of sewer connection, a decision has only been made for one portion of the proposed district. The recently tabulated survey results were presented to the La Cañada Flintridge City Council during last week’s council meeting.

A cluster of volunteers in white jumpsuits huddled around the La Cañada Flintridge float, "If Pigs Could Fly," in the minutes before the parade inched up Orange Grove Boulevard. "This group, as much as they'd hate to say it - is a family," float driver Pamela Weidenbeck said, as others ribbed her. Weidenbeck said her thought before getting behind the wheel of the float each year is, "Lord, don't let me (mess) up. " Before float construction chief James Herrington could answer a question about the most challenging aspect of making the float, his colleagues jumed in: "Getting up before 10 a.m. "  Herrington said it was a challenge to integrate everyone's ideas in the float, in which porcine aviators in flight gear lift their plane into the air. -- Bill Kisliuk , Times Community News Twitter: @bkisliuk
