A bear visited our driveway on the night of August 6-7. For several days we couldn't understand how a neighbor's large trash can of picnic and party remains had been unloaded in our long and tree-lined driveway. The mystery was solved a few days later when a neighbor called out to ask if we had seen the bear. No, we hadn't; but we certainly had seen too much of its trail. Ironically, our daughter in La Crescenta had a similar visitor recently on her much more public driveway. Yours for fewer ursine visits, Don and Charlotte Dewey La Cañada Flintridge

Valley View by Fereva To tell the truth, I admired their initiative and might have joined them, had I stood 6-feet-plus and been oh, yes - male. At approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday last, the sound of an intermittently echoing thump, thump, thump! woke me from a groggy sleep. It took some time to realize that the sound was increasingly persistant, and still further time to identify it: Challenging guy voices + thump, thump, thump coming from the street = Yup, bball at (now nearly)

If a Tree Falls in the Neighborhood...Someone Will Hear the Wood Chipper If the loud whine of a chainsaw and the downright dreadful noise of a wood chipper broke the quiet of your Tuesday evening, the sounds may well have been coming from our driveway. I do most sincerely apologize. We don't know what caused an enormous tree limb from a beautiful, towering liquidambar next door to fall across our driveway sometime during that late afternoon when no one was around, but we do know my husband panicked when he arrived home to find the first car he'd purchased as a teen, a 1969 Fiat sports coupe, buried beneath the limb and all its branches.

Several La Cañada residents brainstormed and organized early this week to thank firefighters for their hard work battling the Station fire. Using the Internet social network Facebook to get the message out, one local girl’s mother encouraged friends and family to paint their car windows with messages for the public safety personnel, including the words, “Thank You, Firefighters.” On Monday afternoon, Ashlyn Singelyn hosted a car-painting event in her family’s Fernside Drive driveway, with mother Lisa Singelyn, who had made the Facebook suggestion, providing the window paint.

Letters to the Editor Leash Law? On June 1st at around 7:55 p.m. a black Labrador retriever came up our long driveway, entered our garage and killed our cat. Our cat was not outside nor was it dark. She was slain within a 5-minute time frame in which my husband had carried in a bag of groceries from his car into the kitchen. On his way in, he saw "Gretchen" sitting near the kitchen door. When he went back to the car to get another bag of groceries a woman wearing a blue jacket came up the driveway and asked him if he had seen her black Labrador.

A neighborhood feud that has been waged at La Cañada Flintridge City Hall for more than five years may soon come to an end, with City Council members deciding Monday to broker an easement over a disputed slice of land. Dr. Philip Merritt has been fighting with neighbors and the city to use Windermere Place, a street off Inverness Drive that exists in name only, to access a home he plans to build on hillside property that abuts Hampstead Road. The city-drafted easement proposal would allow Merritt to build Windermere as a private driveway instead, with neighbors also having rights to use it if they agree to share construction costs.

Mountain lion tracks are still visible down the side of the hill near the Brown’s La Cañada Flintridge home. “The ice plant is back now, but it was smashed down and you could see the [cougar tracks] all the way down the hill,” said Bob Brown. He and his wife are still dealing with the loss of their dog Buddy after a horrific night last week that began with a lot of barking. Brown had just arrived home from work July 30 when he heard barks from his 5-year-old dog Buddy, a 65-pound shepherd-terrier mix, echo from the backyard.
