A months-long cockfight over a proposed backyard chicken coop came to an end Monday as the La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted 5-0 to deny a side yard setback variance that would have allowed the installation of a coop to go forward. Holger and Elizabeth Besch, who live at 5128 Oakwood Ave., had hoped to build an 8 x 17 x 7 feet hen house in the southeast corner of their backyard. On March 11, they applied for and were granted a setback variance that would allow them to build within a few feet of their neighbor?

Before the sun rises at JPL it is not uncommon to see a family of deer roam through the campus. The scene is tranquil, like that on Walden's Pond, and yet inside the buildings, historical events are taking place. On Oct. 3, scientists and engineers of the Mar Reconnaissance Orbiter entered an area in a JPL office titled the Purple Pigeon Coop before 5 a.m. in anticipation of the first test of the satellites capability to "roll" in order to take pictures of the surface of Mars. The coop, really an area with desks and many computers, was titled that back in the 1980s by a JPL manager who wanted to find clever names for their missions, ones that would capture the imagination, said Peter Xaypraseuth, JPL systems engineer on MRO. In fact, the room is full of little signs like that indicate these engineers and scientists have fun with their jobs.

In the spirit of both Christmas and cooperation, Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School students, teachers, and parents celebrated the holiday with songs, food, and so much merriment that Santa himself had to come see what all the noise was about. "It just gets better and better each year," said Nita Imm, teacher of the Busy Bears and director of the school, referring to their annual Christmas Program where the Darling Ducklings (3 year olds) and Busy Bears (4 year olds) join voices and hands to the delight of the preschoolers' family and friends.

Sometimes, one is accorded a special gift out of nowhere, for apparently no reason. It's kinda like a cosmic nod, wherein the universe says, "Hey, you're doing good. Here you go, have some fun!" I enjoyed such an unexpected moment earlier this week while going to lunch with a friend. As we approached the diner (meat loaf special with coffee and pie type of place), two fellows were just leaving. One wore a navy pea coat, which caused me to remark, "Wow, I haven't seen one of those in more than 30 years!"

The'60s musical, "Bye-Bye Birdie" will sing its last song at the Pasadena Junior Theatre on Sunday. The Tony Award winning musical is one that has lasted through the ages. The story line begins with teenage heartthrob and rockstar Conrad Birdie who was recently drafted to the war. Being the teens that they are, his fans go absolutely nuts over the possible loss of their famed hero. In addition, Birdie's manager frets over the thought of unemployment. So he comes up with an idea.

It’s started again. It seems the La Cañada Flintridge City Council can’t avoid the flying feathers when this city’s residents get passionate about their poultry. In an appeal of an animal waiver denial, the City Council Monday night heard the pleas of Oakwood Avenue residents Holger and Elizabeth Besch, who hope to build a chicken coop on the edge of their property to house their 4-to-6 laying hens. According to the code standards recently adopted by the city, the lot size of the Besch property is adequate to allow up to six chickens.

We were deep in the bowels of Number One Valley Sun Lane. There were four of us. One of us was a dog. Another was anonymous. It was me, the Editor, Miss Audrey Hepburn (the dog) and the Anonymous Source. The Editor was incredulous, as editors are wont. “You want to write about how Bugsy Siegel did not get arrested? Was Bugsy Siegel even here in 1926?” No, I said. It was a different Benjamin Siegel who was arrested in Flintridge. The Anonymous Source sprang to my defense.
