Like many, I read an ancient text, bit-by-bit, week-by-week. I always start with good intentions and am invariably side tracked. This time, I put down the text and decided to go shopping. I had been invited to a private "holiday boutique" in Chinatown. On Chung King Road. The easiest way to get to Chung King Road is to drive to Pasadena. Take the Metro Gold Line to the Chinatown Station. Descend the stairs and walk due west about six blocks. I was late, so I drove the whole way and parked behind a gas station.

La Cañadans are quite unused to getting poor grades — being the over-achievers that we are — so it was unsettling to learn this week that our city was handed a "D" in tobacco-control efforts by the American Lung Association. It seems preposterous to me that in July our little municipality topped the Los Angeles County life-expectancy list due to many factors, including "a weekly farmers market, walkable streets and effective public education," according to our news article on the subject, only to learn six months later that we might be teetering on the edge of a lung-cancer abyss because there are no laws in place here requiring smoke-free multiple-housing units and outdoor dining areas.

An already stressful undertaking for high school seniors — the rigorous college application process — has intensified this year with news of tuition hikes and class cutbacks throughout college and university systems. Students are forging ahead, but the higher education climate is radically changed from even one year ago. Applications for the University of California and the California State University are due on Monday. Early decision deadlines for private colleges and universities are also in the fall, making it the busiest time of year for seniors, their parents and the college counselors who try and help them make sense of it all. La Cañada High School senior Zoe Kumugai, who plays the double bass and plans on majoring in music, said applying to college is like having a part-time job. “It is definitely a big stress factor,” Kumugai said.
