Two local youths, Chelsea Johnson from Crescenta Valley High School and Abraham Frandsen from La Cañada High School, were honored last week at "Mormon Night at Dodger Stadium." A tradition for many years, "Mormon Night at Dodger Stadium" draws thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from numerous stakes in the greater Los Angeles area. (A stake is a geographical area which includes seven to 10 local congregations.) Six graduating high school seniors who are members of the church in the greater Los Angeles area are honored each year for outstanding academic, extracurricular activities and community service.

This is an exciting week. Summer is here. The New York Yankees will meet the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Tony Hayward, the chief executive of British Petroleum, might return from the Isle of Wight yacht race, where his $700,000 yacht placed fourth in its class in the regatta. A new principal, Karen Hurley, takes over the reins at Palm Crest Elementary School. The beginning of summer is traditionally a time of when many La Cañadans look for exciting things to do. In the spirit of summer energy, the following is my semiannual top 10 list of Southern California's greatest places, in and around the 91011.

Though it’s tough to say just how comfortable he is with his new team, Mark Loretta certainly isn’t complaining. “It’s going to be a lot different back in LA than it is here in Arizona,” Loretta said to the Valley Sun at Spring Training in Arizona. “[But] this was the team I grew up watching. I went to my first major league game at Dodger Stadium, I used to go to 10 or 12 games a year. My memories were of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Ron Cey and Bill Russell.

What do Ford, GM and La Cañada Flintridge City Council members have in common? They all want their “fair share” of the federal stimulus package. What does any of this have to do with Manny Ramirez? It’s in the subtext. True, the Dodgers offered Manny too much money in a down economy. True, Manny should have taken the deal. But in this season of trillion dollar bailouts, why can’t the La Cañada Flintridge City Council forgo the $1 million repaving of city streets and donate the money to the Los Angeles Dodgers?

You might suspect that the soft-spoken neighbor of average height with the kindly attitude but strong build was some kind of athlete. You might be right. Greg Dobbs, the third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies, is a local resident. He and his wife, Heidi, moved to La Cañada three years ago, about a year before bringing their daughter into the world. ?It?s a really nice area,? Dobbs said. ?We love the community and it?s a great place to live.? Dobbs grew up in Riverside, far away from La Cañada, but his wife Heidi Dobbs, nee Reinhardt, is from the area, a graduate of Crescenta Valley High and granddaughter of Bill Reinhardt, former coach at Glendale College.

At this point in his 15-year Major League Baseball career, Mark Loretta?s job description has been simplified for the most part to watching from the dugout and staying ready, waiting for his chance to affect a game with his bat. Easier said than done, particularly when the former St. Francis High standout has been sitting on the bench for the better part of nine innings, as was the case in Thursday?s second game of the 2009 National League Division Series between his Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodger Stadium.

Oh, I did love our rainy day last week. As soon as I heard the pitter-pat of rain on the roof, I raced to turn on the fireplace in the living room, brewed a cup of aromatic spiced tea and a grabbed a good book. It is my idea of perfect rainy day fun. I also liked the rest of the crisp autumn-like weather we had. I know the weather people say that we are in for another hot spell, but I sure did love those autumn days. -- I'm very excited that we have two La Cañada High School princesses on the 2014 Tournament of Roses Rose Court - Katherine Diane Lipp and Elizabeth Katie Woolf . The Rose Queen will be announced on Oct. 24. -- I had a wonderful visit with June Alexander and her husband, Doug , who were recently visiting here with Nina and Larry Ratliff from their home on St. Simon Island, Ga. June, whose last name was Peterson at the time, was the AP English teacher at Crescenta Valley High School from 1972 to 1989.
