This despite the fact that Caltrans officials repeatedly told people attending the meeting that the purpose of that event was to provide ?transparency? between the agency and the public.

High winds that scoured the area Friday night were blamed for a small brush fire that was quickly extinguished by firefighters. Heavy gusts first downed a tree, which in turn knocked over a secondary power line at 5212 Jessen Drive, according to Stephanie English, community service representative for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The live wires ignited some dry brush on the hillside behind the home. English said that after Fire Station 19 received a call at 7:08 p.m., eight fire engines, three helicopters and Forest Service crews were deployed to the fire, which was stopped after burning about a quarter of an acre.

On Christmas Day, Zachary Wetzel walked 20 miles through the mountains and jungles of Paraguay to a hotel that could receive phone calls from the United States. He made the journey to receive a call from his parents in La Cañada. Wetzel is one of 28 Mormon missionaries from La Cañada serving around the world, the most ever at one time, according to Jay Johnson, a father of another student serving as a Mormon missionary. The missionaries only have two chances each year to take calls from their families — on Christmas and on Mother's Day. "When you only get two chances a year to speak with your family, it's worth it," Mick Wetzel, Zachary's father, said of his son's trek.

Some of the beauty to be found in the Angeles National Forest this spring can exact a heavy price. Areas burned by the Station fire are sprouting a bush with a lovely purple flower known as the poodle-dog bush. But when it comes to this plant, hikers would do well to head warnings from officials: look, but don't touch. That's because the flowering plant,  Turricula parryi, can cause poison oak-like skin rashes and blisters. The plant thrives in areas where the soil has been ravaged by flash floods or, as in this case, fire.
