We members of the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. Board of Directors owe a big thank you to the foothill community for their outpouring of support to the association. The recent theft at our construction site was a big loss of important cables and welding equipment. However, the concern among community members has resulted in a large number of donations, from $20 all the way to the significant checks we received from Wells Fargo Bank and NASA Services. The construction and site crews have ordered and replaced nearly all of the stolen items.

It was a happy occasion in the construction site at the Methodist church last week. Just south of the Oak Grove and Berkshire Place intersection, there was a birth of record proportions. As previously reported, there is a rock migration that takes place in Hahamongna Park, which ends at the Methodist church. However, this new development of rock birth, officially referred to as Kid Rock in professional circles and triangles, has scientists bowled over. "It is the largest proliferation of rocks in all of this general area," proclaimed Rocky Balboa, the former fighter, turned rockologist.

Building Still Too Tall This is the only condominium/apartment building in the history of Los Angeles County that was built too tall and part of it had to be torn down. L.A. County allowed this building to be built six feet too tall. The code for L.A. County is 35 feet. This structure was 41 feet. Only 115 feet was removed from the front of the building. This was the first of five units on the third floor. My feeling is that the building is still too tall. I have been trying to get the calculations the county used to determine why only 115 feet was removed.

On the morning of Wednesday, March 13, signs were placed on the trail that skirts the east fence of JPL (west of the stream), announcing a temporary closure while a new parking structure is built. The signs indicate that the closure will extend through the summer of 2014 and advises trail users to use “other existing trails” to avoid the construction site. In the 20 years I've used this trail for hiking and biking, JPL has done far more to undermine the trail (literally, by its unchecked storm runoff)
