Ten Years Ago Having been in the planning stage for a full year, the La Cañada Flintridge Farmers Market debuted for a six-month trial period. The stalls for the first market were set up on Beulah Drive, in front of Sport Chalet headquarters. Twenty Years Ago Although La Cañada remained unscathed beyond the arrival of wind-carried smoke and ashes, wildfires devastated several Southern California areas during the final two weeks of October 1993, with the worst started by a transient's campfire in Altadena's Eaton Canyon on Oct. 27. More than 2,100 firefighters were called to fight the blaze, which ultimately destroyed 5,700 acres and 121 homes in Altadena and Sierra Madre.

Two men were rescued by a search team Thursday after getting lost 12 hours earlier while hiking in the Eaton Canyon area above Pasadena. Assisted by a deputy who descended by rope from a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter, the men were individually hoisted up to the aircraft before being whisked away to the nearby Eaton Canyon Nature Center. The department's Altadena station received a call at 5:40 p.m. Wednesday from one of the two 24-year-old men saying they were "OK" but had become lost, sheriff's Deputy Daniel Page told KTLA-TV Channel 5. The men, described as fit but inexperienced hikers, were believed to have started their trek about noon, Page said.

On Tuesday leaders of the agencies that rescue hikers hosted a safety meeting at Eaton Canyon Natural Area in Pasadena, warning about risks on the trails and the dangers of web sites and videos that encourage people to go off trails. Eaton Canyon is a focus for first responders because 2011 saw a high number of injuries and incidents requiring crews to use choppers to bring hikers to safety.

In a summer where bears are splashing into backyard pools, trashing garbage cans and - in one tragic case - crashing into a car, experts came to Eaton Canyon Nature Center Saturday to discuss interactions between humans and bears in the foothills. Kim Bosell, a natural-area administrator for the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, said people and bears try to steer clear of each other, but encounters are inevitable where the city meets the forest. “Black bears in this area aren't here to kill people,” she said.

The La Cañada High golf team is one of the favorites, if not the favorite, to capture the Rio Hondo League championship this season. With confidence running high, and understandably so, the Spartans maintained an undefeated season with a 201-215 victory over Temple City Tuesday at Eaton Canyon Golf Course. "On the potential of an undefeated season, I'd have to say that the players are currently more confident than I am," Spartan Head Coach Richard Tetu said. Paving the way for the 6-0 Spartans were Brian Veeh and Ross Thomson.
