Getting on board a gondola in Venice, setting sail on the Mediterranean Sea, or taking a trip down under to Australia might seem appealing as the winter months drag on even for those in sunny Southern California. The thought of traveling far from home to witness a portion of the world that’s only been heard of stirs many a soul with a bit of wanderlust. For those of us on tightened budgets after the holidays, or a lack of vacation time readily available, Kiwanis Club of La Cañada’s Travelogue series offers a chance to enjoy the sights and sounds abroad without leaving the confines of La Cañada.

The one-time owners of a tiny eight-room motel on the banks of the Colorado River must be feeling a little like the Native Americans who sold Manhattan Island for, let's say, less than today's market value. Not that these motel owners were short-changed by visionary Don Laughlin - it's just that now, four decades later, Laughlin has parlayed that $235,000 investment into a big-time resort empire that so far has drawn eight other casino/hotels to his little stretch of the Colorado.

Every week, all across town, I see gardeners gathering up leaves and putting them in trashcans. The leaves should be left on the ground because gathering them up is totally disruptive to the nutrient cycle/needs of plants. The fallen leaves contain essential minerals for the plant, which reabsorbs the minerals from the fallen leaves that break down into the soil. Furthermore, allowing leaves to remain on the ground traps moisture in the soil, and this means that the plants will not need to be watered as frequently.

Ten Years Ago ... A windstorm with gusts of up to 100 miles per hour battered La Cañada Flintridge New Year's Eve 1995. The warm Santa Ana winds started in the early evening before building force; at about 11:30 p.m. area residents began calling in damage reports. By 7 a.m. Jan. 1, 1996, the winds abated and cleanup began. Twenty Years Ago ...
