The Crescenta Valley Sheriff?s Station is recognizing April 13 to 19 as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. ?We are honoring those that work as dispatchers,? said Capt. David Silversparre. ?It is very important that we recognize what they do.? Dispatchers are many times the focal point between the deputies on the street and those who call the station for help. When someone in La Cañada, La Crescenta and the unincorporated area of Montrose dials 911 they will be connected to a dispatcher at the CV station.

A potential traffic tragedy was averted on Monday when a woman whose car would not stop accelerating on Foothill Boulevard was able to stop the vehicle, thanks to the instructions of a Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station dispatcher. The woman, a 40-year-old resident of Sunland, and her daughter, 5, were eastbound on Foothill Boulevard at 10:55 a.m., approaching Sport Chalet Drive, when their car's accelerator became stuck, forcing the vehicle to move at 20-25 miles per hour. The woman called 911 from her cell phone, and said, sobbing, “There are cars in front of me and I can't stop.” The 911 operator patched the woman through to the local Sheriff's day shift dispatcher, Richard Engersbach.

What reading material is on your bedside table this December week? I'd like to be able to recommend a recent release that came into my hands the other day, but it's a real snooze. The 80-page report issued by the United States Government Accountability Office: “Station Fire - Forest Service's Response Offers Potential Lessons for Future Wildland Fire Management” heaps bureaucracy on top of bureaucracy. Do not bother cracking it open unless you're in the mood to be discouraged.

For more than 30 years the Allen Lund Company has been a part of the transportation industry, and a good neighbor in La Cañada. Allen Lund, founder and president of the company, began his company in downtown Los Angeles but soon found that the area was not the most inviting of locations. "It was a rough area," Lund said. "It was difficult to get people to come down to the office." Lund moved his office to a building in Glendale on San Fernando Road, but didn't stay there long.
