The steady drumbeat of bear sightings in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains reached a crescendo last week, with two unusual incidents punctuating a season full of bear activity. Bear-turned-celebrity Meatball, aka Glen Bearian, saw his run in the sun come to an end. After several visits to residential neighborhoods above Glendale, the bear with 28,000 Twitter followers was lured into a trap by a McDonald's Happy Meal. Department of Fish and Game officials had grown weary of tranquilizing Glen Bearian and hauling him deep into the woods, only to see him return.

I've never been able to dispel the memory of Dec. 1, 1956. Ninety-two children and three nuns died in a fire at Our Lady of the Angels Elementary School in Chicago. I was in the third grade, and time has not erased feelings of despondency and insecurity. I still see the pictures of the firemen carrying the lifeless bodies of the children. We prayed for their souls but, frankly, I had a hard time praying to a god who would allow children to suffer. Years later, circumstances did not improve.

Artistry There's just no word for it other than unbelievable! No! It was even better than that, it was sheer pageantry. Let me get right to the story, there's no time to waste. Last Friday, Ken and Laura Liang, invited Kaitzer, me and friends to Descanso Gardens for an evening of tapas, wine and music. The evening was surreal. The fires burning in Burbank left an ominous sky, putting one on edge and leaving the impression that something was about to happen. I've had that feeling before.

The event was pretty much what La Cañada City Councilman David Spence imagined when in the 1990s he urged the city to begin a community Music in the Park event. Spence previously told the Valley Sun he’d been to Maine nearly 20 years ago and seen a community park event where everyone gathered to enjoy an evening together and hear the community band play. The event was a lot of fun and people vacationing from all over came out to hear the band play, he said. In a similar fashion, hundreds of folks gathered last Sunday night at Memorial Park, prepared with blankets, lawn chairs, picnic baskets and, in some cases, the family pet, ready for an evening of entertainment, relaxation, and family fun. They weren’t disappointed.

A display of frenetic energy. A glorious auditory sensation. An uplifting moving sentimental voyage. And then the Crescenta Valley High School Choir went into their second number of the evening. An estimated crowd of 500 were witness last week to the Vocal Music Department's six choir presentation, A Feast Of Lights. The 24-song set lasted just under two hours and judging by the prolonged standing ovation given at its end, it's probably fair to say all attendees were satisfied by what was served up at this musical feast.

Loa Blasucci Let's talk about the most coveted commodity in your life. The more of it you have, the better you feel and the higher quality of life you enjoy. Hmm, you say, is it money, your big, beautiful La Cañada home, gasoline … what could it be? Surprisingly, none of the above. It's energy! So let's cut right to the chase and focus on your body's "squeaky wheel" when it comes to energy usage. The digestive process uses energy on demand. You eat three meals a day, drink sporadically, snack when you feel like it, chew gum, and occasionally overload your system with food and beverages.

Valley View by Fereva I am noise challenged. And in today's increasingly loud world, a challenge it is. Somewhere in our neighborhood lives a very talkative bird. Domesticated or not, I can't tell. Perhaps talkative isn't the correct term for a bird who dishes out a cacophony of ear shattering screeches at all hours of the day and night. The problem being that I attempt to sleep at night and need my windows open to do so. "Caw, caw, caw!" cries the bird into the wee hours.
