Businesses in La Cañada Flintridge that are planning an exterior repaint will have to run their color choice by City Hall first, the City Council decided this week. The council on Tuesday unanimously approved the first reading of an amendment to city's zoning ordinance that would require owners of commercial properties who want to fully or partially repaint their building's exterior to get approval first from the city's director of community development. If the proposed paint color is judged to be significantly different from the previous hue, Design Commission approval will be required.

As a physician, I would like to comment on the patient aspect of this recent court decision that has the local hospital executives so excited. This massive tax program, which is the largest expansion of the federal government since FDR's New Deal, is applauded by the local hospital CEOs, but it is bad for patients and America. Hospitals have placed themselves in a situation that they must serve the federal government to receive payment. In return they are to provide compliance and more recently, patient records via electronic medical record programs (approved by the AMA)

Many California residents have a distinct advantage when it comes time to try out a cruise vacation: they can drive right to the dock. With frequent departures from San Diego and Los Angeles, there's no need to invest a lot of time or money flying cross-country to reach your ship. This is the ideal scenario for the first-time cruiser who wants a no-muss, no-fuss way to test the cruise waters. Our recent cruise on Holland-America out of San Diego was an excellent example - a 45-minute drive from our suburban San Diego home and we were ready to board our ship to the Mexican Riviera.

Ten Years Ago Deputies from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station were inviting the public to be generous during their planned April 20, 2004 "Tip-A-Cop" event held at Hill Street Cafe. The law enforcement officials said they would donate all the tips they earned during shifts at the restaurant to benefit the Pasadena chapter of the Special Olympics. The previous year, in their first foray into serving tables for a cause, the local deputies had earned more than $3,000. Twenty Years Ago The La Cañada Flintridge City Council established a senior needs assessment committee and gave it 18 months to prepare a report addressing the needs of the city's senior residents.

L.A. County flood-control officials presented several options for removing built-up debris and mud from a basin above Devil's Gate Dam in northern Pasadena in a draft environmental impact report released Thursday. The basin became choked by mud and debris after the 2009 Station fire and storms that followed. Flood-control officials have warned for years that the build-up compromises the dam's ability to contain another major storm, the Los Angeles Times reported .  They say areas downstream from the dam along the Arroyo Seco -- including the Rose Bowl, 110 Freeway and neighborhoods in Pasadena, South Pasadena and the northeastern Los Angeles communities of Highland Park, Hermon, Montecito Heights, Mount Washington and Cypress Park -- could be in danger of flooding.

LA CAÑADA - La Cañada High baseball Coach Alex Valadez dismisses any notion that his team is in the driver's seat when it comes to a possible Rio Hondo League title. “We focus on the next game,” Valadez said. “I can't overlook anybody is this league.” However, the fact is that the Spartans, following Friday's 10-4 win over South Pasadena, now sit at 6-2 in league and 11-5 overall, two more victories than and the same number of league losses as Monrovia. According to Johnny Selsor, the Spartans at the beginning of the season considered a modest goal of winning two out of every three games against league opponents.

Q. What are the various methods of controlling pain? Acute pain is generally controlled by treating the underlying disease and using short-term pain relievers. Chronic pain, however, usually requires several approaches, including various behavioral and coping strategies in addition to pain relievers and possibly other drugs. You should speak with your doctor about the various over-the-counter and prescription products that are available to treat pain. The goal of drug treatment is not only to remove the pain, but also to improve function and quality of life.

A controversial movement to increase parental authority over public education is quickly gaining traction in Pasadena. A parent group recently forced a change in the principal's office at Jefferson Elementary School, and organizers are now setting their sights on John Muir High School. At Jefferson, where enrollment last year was more than 85% Latino, a group of Spanish-speaking mothers long at odds with school administrators has organized under the banner of Parent Revolution, advocates of California's “parent trigger” law. Under the law, if a majority of parents whose children attend an underperforming public school file a petition, they can impose drastic changes ranging from replacing teachers or administrators to converting campuses to charter schools.

Many other government agencies continue to grapple with recession-driven budget deficits, but La Cañada Flintridge is looking forward to a sturdy bottom line over the next five years. City Finance Director Daniel Jordan told council members during their mid-year budget review last week to expect narrow budget surpluses in all but one of the next five fiscal years. While he cautioned that city officials may have to tap up to $32,000 of city’s $14 million in reserves to balance the books in fiscal year 2013-14, Jordan projected a surplus of more than $300,000 in 2015-16.

SUN VALLEY — Flintridge Prep had it. Going into the fourth quarter of its season-opening contest against St. Genevieve, the Rebels football team held a 20-7 advantage that — according to how the game had gone up until that point —was a comfortable lead which needn't any panic. But the Valiants, led by quarterback Mark Chin, scored two unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the latter followed by a successful two-point conversion with 14 seconds remaining that ultimately gave the Valiants the 21-20 home nonleague victory Saturday night.
