Did District Judge Casey Rodgers go too far in filing contempt charges against Principal Frank Lay and Athletic Director Robert Freeman of Pace High School in Santa Rosa County, Florida?

LA CRESCENTA — A day after it gained control of St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church, the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles initiated a major property makeover.

Jon Bruno, bishop of the six-county diocese. “It was sad for me yesterday when I saw how it had fallen into disarray,” said Bruno, who thought the grounds had not been well-managed as the diocese’s court-mandated date for taking over the church approached.

The mother recently filed a restraining order against the father, Joseph Reyes, after he baptized the girl Catholic, against a pledge he had taken to raise her Jewish. A judge then barred Reyes from exposing the girl to any faith other then Judaism — Reyes defied the order after taking his daughter to Mass.

Recent changes to state law will result in many theft-related crimes formerly charged as felonies to be handled as misdemeanors. Locally, this means many thieves who commit property crimes in La Cañada Flintridge and surrounding areas will be spending much less time behind bars, and doing so in county jail rather than in state prison, said Capt.
