Violated. That is the word most victims of residential burglary use to describe their feelings. Of course other words, such as: hurt, outraged, and scared work as well. As victims of recent residential burglaries, we can both attest that all of those words have meaning. Residential burglaries are a major concern in La Cañada Flintridge. In 2001, there were 65 residential burglaries. This number increased to 122 in 2008. While the last couple of months shows real promise in reversing this trend, we hope the current economic downturn will not re-exacerbate the problem.

Moments after Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station deputies responded to a burglary alarm Wednesday morning at a home on the 4300 block of Shepherds Lane, the station also got a call from L.A. County Fire Station 82 — this one about jewelry boxes being thrown from the window of a car entering the eastbound 210 Freeway behind the station. It turns out that the boxes, which still contained assorted costume jewelry, belonged to the burglarized homeowner, who is working with investigators to determine whether anything else is missing from her ransacked bedroom.

On Saturday a long line of about 120 burglary victims waited at the Crescenta Valley Station hoping they might find their property was part of over 1000 items discovered in a Montrose apartment during a recent investigation. The items, which consisted of everything from guitars to computer and costume jewelry to high-end pieces, were displayed on several tables that filled the station’s back parking lot. Burglary victims from Chatsworth to Monrovia scanned the property hoping to find something that looked familiar.

Thanksgiving has arrived and that can mean only one thing to many inveterate shoppers: eat lightly and avoid a food hangover because Black Friday is tomorrow, when the deals at retailers will be sweet to those willing to haul their bodies out of bed long before the first crack of dawn. We’re always treated to media reports of the masses crowding into stores the day after Thanksgiving, complete with videos or still photos of rabid shoppers elbowing perceived competitors for limited items out of their way. I expect we’ll see plenty of such coverage beginning well before noon tomorrow.

Do you remember your first job? Mine was behind the costume jewelry counter smack in the center of Bullock’s department store on South Lake in Pasadena. My boss was Eileen Hack. I was 18, perhaps a little old for a first job aside from baby-sitting, but my parents had allowed me to put off seeking employment because from the age of 12 I was quite active in Job’s Daughters, Bethel #226, and that organization took up a lot of my extracurricular time. Mrs. Hack called me at home one summer day, completely out of the blue, and offered me the part-time Bullock’s job. She had our phone number because both my older sisters had worked for her in the past.

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall My best friend, Judie, used to be a jewelry designer. She no longer makes her own jewelry. These days Judie haunts gem shows for unique artisan pieces and fine gemstones. A few months ago I was tagging along behind Judie as she combed the aisles of a gem show at the Pasadena Convention Center. We usually go to Santa Monica, where it's horribly crowded and steamy hot, inside giant white tents. For once, I was not crammed in with hordes of shoppers, dying of the heat.
