The diesel trucks are coming! You may have been hearing about the flood-control project in Hahamongna Watershed Park. The draft EIR has just been released. All four options have admitted significant impact in transportation of sediment, air quality, noise, land use, and with negative impact on biological and cultural resources. What does this mean for the schools, neighborhood and park visitors? There will be 425 diesel trucks per day, 50 per hour, six days a week (from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays)

We had the front gate rebuilt in February as it was low enough that Diesel could stand up with his front paws on the top bar and look as if he was going to FALL over. This terrified passersby (who do not realize he is just yelling HEY! YEAH YOU! You with the dogs! Wanna play!? Right here right now? MY RULES!!!) who think he's going to come over that gate and eat them and their dogs. So, we had the boards raised. He can still hop up and look over, but they feel safer. Anyway Diesel, who has just recuperated from breaking his toe (running like a damn fool from one end of the front yard to the other, ripping madly through the ivy to bark at dogs being walked or people jogging, caught his left-rear, outside toe on an ivy-rope and broke it cleanly — it swung 90 degrees without so much as a click)

Part 2 ? One of the reasons we like the really big dogs is they are fearless. They see the world as full of things which cannot possibly hurt them ? so fear biting is not a problem. These guys don?t have to bite to stop people and other animals in their tracks, a growl or a lifted lip showing one of those 1 ½? fangs will do that just fine. So the neighborhood kids could tumble around and wrestle and pound on them and strangers would come by and we?d have play dates with their dogs.

I’ve noticed a puzzling change in the bark patterns of the dogs in our neighborhood. We’ve had a series of big dogs for the past 30 years and they all make friends with the neighbors’ dogs and sniff and wag through the fences barking Good Morning! and How’s It Going?, What is that you are EATING?, and the perennial favorite, HEY! When a new dog moves in he has to pay his dues at the fence lines and there are always some bark-outs during which the new guy must stand submissively and just TAKE IT. But soon enough he’s friends with everybody else.

The new year started out with a traffic nightmare Tuesday for motorists on the eastbound 134 Freeway who had to be diverted onto the 2 Freeway during the morning and into the mid-day commute. The result was a traffic back-up on the 2 freeway as well as between the 134 and the Golden State Freeway (5). At 7:40 a.m. Jan. 2 two big rigs collided, one burst into flames and several gallons of diesel fuel spilled across traffic lanes. Two other vehicles were also involved in the accident.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is commissioning a study to assess the technical feasibility of boring a tunnel to connect the Long Beach (710) Freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway. To the dismay of city leaders, the study, which an MTA official stressed is "preliminary," will not take into account pollution levels that could increase if the tunnel is built and more freeway traffic courses through La Cañada Flintridge as result. The study will help answer critical questions related to a tunnel that would connect the 710 terminus at the Santa Monica (10)

Crews plan to install a 30,000-pound standby diesel generator for potential earthquakes and wind events on Wednesday, prompting upcoming street closures in the La Cañada area, officials said.
