Or your cellphone is about to ring. Meanwhile, Twitter, Facebook, Earthlink or Gmail collect your messages. You’ll read them later, when you are ready. I am a child of the digital age.

For all technology's advantages - speed, instantaneous communication and connection across great distances - is it possible that it also, in some measure, diminishes the quality of how we relate to one another and to ourselves? Catherine Steiner-Adair, a clinical psychologist, school consultant and author of the new book, “The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age,” asks parents to consider the value of occasionally unplugging. In an Oct. 22 discussion hosted by the La Cañada Unified School District, Steiner-Adair spoke to La Cañada parents about how smart phones, texting and other online media impact the lives of parents and children.

La Cañada schools are taking another step into the digital age. This year teachers will have classroom Internet access and an iPad to be able to download educational software, according to Mike Leininger, the La Cañada Unified School District's assistant superintendent of facilities and operations. “We are doing our best to provide the best technology we can as we move into the future,” Leininger told the school board Monday. Students don't yet have wireless access, Leininger said, but that could change by Aug. 28, the first day of the school year.

For years La Cañadans have gone to the post office, sometimes rushing to get in a last-minute request before closing time. Now, in an effort to be more accessible to postal customers, the post office has come to them. A new Village Post Office (VPO) recently opened in Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse for people who want to purchase Forever stamps or mail U.S. Postal Service pre-priced Priority Mail Flat Rate parcels. The limited-service counter, set up in the stationery section of the store, will operate during store hours, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. PHOTOS: First Village Post Office within 35,000 sq. miles opens in La Cañada It's part of a larger plan to make the post office a more viable option for people who can't make it to the brick and mortar location, said La Cañada Flintridge Postmaster Rosslyn Strawther.

Since his graduation from the University of Iowa nearly four decades ago, Julio Emilio Moline has fostered his passion for photography on a part-time basis, always on the sidelines. "I kept [photography] as a side interest, and it hasn't been my primary professional pursuit until recently - when I began devoting more time to it," Moline said in an interview this week. His work is being exhibited throughout February at Penelope's Café Books & Gallery in La Cañada. Larry Moss, who co-owns Penelope's, is a friend of Moline's, having worked with him as a landscape architect.
