It was Jan. 9, 1970. I remember it as though it was yesterday. I had six hours remaining. I was flying out of Norton at 2 p.m., heading to Vietnam. With the time I had left I decided to spend the day doing what I enjoyed, just in case. I threw my sea bag in my MGB, put the top down, donned my aviator sunglasses and headed to a greasy spoon south of Corona Del Mar called The Cookery. They made the best breakfast burritos and chocolate cream pie. From there I drove to the Shake Shack near Laguna and had a chocolate malt.

A young bear struck by a car in La Cañada Flintridge Sunday was so severely injured that state fish and game officials were forced to euthanize the ursine because they determined it would not have been able to survive in the wild. The bear was hit by a car at about 7 a.m. Sunday at Foothill Boulevard and Vineta Avenue, in front of McDonald's, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The bear then climbed a fence and headed into the bushes before authorities arrived, but was spotted around 1 p.m. a few blocks away, behind a Starbucks at a shopping mall on Foothill and Gould Avenue, near the Foothill (210)

Michael Shermer stopped by the Flintridge Books and Coffee Shop on a recent night to talk about his book ?Why Darwin Matters? and to sign copies. The book is a fact-finding mission on the debate between theories of evolution and intelligent design. In 1925 the state of Tennessee charged school teacher John Scopes of violating the state?s Butler Act, which outlawed the teaching of Charles Darwin?s theory of evolution in Tennessee schools. Shermer, reading passages from his book aloud, focused much of his reading on the infamous Scopes trial that ensued.
