It was a bright Tuesday at Conrad’s. Breakfast was over. I sipped coffee and leafed through a pile of vintage news clippings. I heard the rumble of a 1969 Triumph in the distance, followed by sirens. They’ll never catch her! I muttered to myself. The clippings had been left by the Anonymous Source, an attractive lady in her 40s, a motorcyclist who is adept at quick escapes. Her bikes are retrofitted with liquid nitrogen. She knows all the flood control channels.

In October, key staff of the Child Educational Center (CEC), led by founding directors Elyssa Nelson and Eric Nelson, joined over 250 early childhood educators, community planners, playground designers, environmental educators and conservationists from around the world to discuss developmentally appropriate nature education for young children. The event, whose chief organizers included the CEC, the National Arbor Day Foundation, Dimensions Educational Research Foundation and the World Forum on Early Care and Education, took place at the Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska, an appropriate setting for the attendees who are trying to promote a world-wide movement to help parents, educators, communities and policy makers understand the vital role nature plays in children's overall health and well-being.

For the first time scientists are getting a look at images of the sun in three dimensions. At a demonstration at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge last week, scientists and audience members donned 3D glasses and watched as solar storms erupted toward them. "To say we are pretty excited is an understatement," said JPL scientist Jean Pierre Wuelser, co-investigator for STEREO at Lockheed Martin. He was at JPL for the press conference on the new images. This 3-D version is not just a Hollywood effect but also a tool that greatly improves the ability of predicting solar weather.

I have a theory about birthdays and it's fairly simple — some are great, some are not. Of course, every birthday is a momentous, much longed for occasion when one is a child. Biggies growing up include 5 (off to school!), 10 (first double digit!) and 13 (hey, I'm a teen!). And then … we get older. I turned 18 the same year 18-year-olds got the vote, so I cast my ballot and it felt pretty huge. Nineteen and 20 were anti-climactic, but 21 cements one's status as an adult.

After 17 years, four times its expected mission lifetime, the Ulysses spacecraft is only a few weeks away from ending its exploration of the sun. According to Ed Smith, Ulysses project scientist at JPL, the main objective of the spacecraft was to study “from every angle, the heliosphere, which is the vast bubble in space carved out by the solar wind.” He credits Ulysses with redefining the knowledge of the heliosphere and “our solar neighborhood.” The spacecraft has flown over the sun’s poles three times.

The La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Assn. is very busy these days. Fiesta Days and the Memorial Day Parade are just around the corner. Most people in our community are familiar with Fiesta Days — the barbecues, the fireworks, the French Toast Breakfast, the Memorial Day Parade, to name only a few events. I hope your whole family will come out and join the chamber and all out sponsors for the festivities! What people may not be as familiar with are all the other roles and impacts that the chamber has and does.

A tossed-off comment from my mother several years ago, on the day my high school senior portrait was delivered to our home, still echoes when someone points a camera toward me. I'd liked my senior photo and had ordered an 8-by-10. I figured it could be displayed on the back of our piano, alongside a photo of the same size that had been taken of my sister when she was that age. After taking her first look at the new portrait, my mother asked why I had ordered “such a big one.” I pointed out its dimensions were identical to the one of my older sister.
