Santa Claus made an early visit this year to Tom Sawyer Camp at Hahamongna Watershed Park. On Nov. 26, Santa and his helper were joined by pony Wrigley and donkey Mercy Lavender for photo opportunities with local children. The event was staged by the camp to benefit the MACH 1 Therapeutic Riding Program for the disabled. For 15 years MACH 1 (Move a Child Higher) has offered equine-assisted activities to the disabled, which vary according to need and ability. It relies on private contributions for the bulk of its funding and generous volunteers for their many hours of assistance.

Our family is a cross cultural American family. Different religions. Different political parties. But we all love one another. A few years ago, we acquired a red, white and blue toy donkey, and a red, white and blue toy elephant. Depending on our moods, they are posed, with the donkey sitting on the elephant or the elephant kicking the donkey. Our country is also cross cultural. That?s why both John McCain and Barack Obama have disowned the negative personal attacks on the candidates and their families.

It?s time to put your political persuasion ahead of calorie counting and take part in the National Election Cookie Poll, now in progress across the country and locally at the Cakery Bakery in La Cañada. As of this week, La Cañada cookie buyers put Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain ahead of his opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, with a slight lead of 116 to 103 votes. However, according to national results tallied at the end of last week by the Retail Bakers of America, the 26 retail bakeries participating in the cookie poll registered Democrats with 481 cookies sold and Republicans trailing with 346 cookies sold.

Grandma (the more gracious one of my two — not the whiskey-belting, chain-smoking, outspoken one) used to say it would reflect very poorly on me indeed if I were to discuss religion or politics in polite company. I can’t recall how we all knew Grandma was a Democrat, but I remember trying to draw her out in a political conversation once when I was about 19 and getting only a bemused smile in return. She wasn’t going to discuss her views. That isn’t to say she didn’t have any; she just didn’t believe one should impose one’s personal beliefs on anyone else.

It was a warm Wednesday morning in the foothills, the sprinklers were on, a few hours after sunrise. I walked along Foothill Boulevard with Miss Audrey Hepburn, our black Lab mix rescue dog from the Pasadena Humane Society. Suddenly, Miss Hepburn began to growl. I looked up. Before us stood a thin-faced, young man, dressed in a red Stanford sweatshirt, sporting a baseball cap with the words "La Cañada Flintridge." He talked into an imaginary cell phone. Not again! It was that process server from West Los Angeles, still hiding out in the local storm drains, looking for witnesses.

California Weekend by Cary Ordway While the best getaway spots in California are almost always crowded on weekends and during popular vacation times, one of the state's recreation jewels is offering a little quieter vacation experience this year. Surprisingly, Big Bear Lake, one of the state's top mountain resort areas, is seeing less-than-expected visitor traffic this year. Local lodging operators say it's due to a "Perfect Storm" of events: a continuation of the Southern California drought, bad press resulting from last year's fires and a pesky beetle that is taking advantage of the dry weather to destroy some of Big Bear's gorgeous pine trees.
