A secluded cove along the dramatic coastline of Pacific Grove, Calif. provided the scenic setting for the August 7, 2005 wedding of Tom Edward Traeger and Daphne Michelle Richer. As sea otters frolicked in the surf and waves crashed on the rocky shoreline, the bride and groom exchanged vows of enduring love before a small gathering of family and friends. The ceremony was followed by an intimate reception in the patio of the Forge in the Forest restaurant in Carmel, Calif. The groom is the son of Solveig Traeger, resident of La Crescenta for many years, and the late Rudolph Traeger.

NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be seeing some of the economic stimulus funds coming its way to help in Earth science research, according to Congressman Adam Schiff. NASA is expected to get $1 billion, with an unspecified amount of that funding going to the local lab. Schiff hosted a round table discussion on the new economic stimulus package Feb. 20 at Caltech. The purpose of the meeting was to answer some of the questions and to get feedback from local citizens about the package.

This weekend the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada will open its campus to the public for its annual Open House. This year's theme is "Journey to the Planets and Beyond." Each year JPL invites the public to learn about space and Earth science exploration. Visitors will see unique 3-D images from space including stereoscopic vies of the sun and movies of JPL missions. In addition to learning what JPL engineers and scientists have been doing this year, there will be information on upcoming missions.

The Obama administration proposed 2011 budget for NASA, which includes a $6 billion boost for earth science and related projects, could bode well for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, despite massive spending and personnel cuts to manned space missions being conducted at NASA facilities in Alabama, Texas and Florida. The proposal would increase spending over the next five years for earth science-related research and robotic precursor programs to the moon, Mars and beyond.

The White House's recent 2008 proposal of just over $17 billion would allow for a small increase in NASA's budget. This includes a plan to replace the aging space shuttle fleet. Locally, the budget is felt at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as it impacts new science and exploration missions. "Here, [at JPL] it is going to be okay," said Richard O'Toole, JPL's manager of legislative affairs. JPL is budgeted project by project, O'Toole said. The projects that JPL is now working on have already had their budgets approved.

Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge is facing some likely budget reductions in the coming year as NASA reorganizes its priorities to support a mission to return to the moon and the development of a replacement for the space shuttle. The local research facility, approaching its 50th anniversary as a pioneering part of the U.S. space program, is expected to weather the upcoming round of cuts with little impact on the ongoing work at the site. Dr. Charles Elachi, lab director, said in a letter to employees that JPL could face a reduction of up to 8 percent, or as much as $12 million.
