It's the story that ties us to a place; the countless memories of family, friends, church, community and school; but at the vortex, the geography of our past is always interwoven with a human connection. It's people who give life to our stories. Stories are built over time and their meaning is a product of duration touched by the human hand. That's how we develop a sense of place; by living life, making memories, and building relationships. It's difficult to escape from places.

The La Cañada Irrigation District is in hot water with a local resident over its refusal to offer flow tests that provide pressure data. Because of a state fire code change at the start of the year, John Caire, a Lombardy Drive property owner, needs a water availability statement for the fire hydrants near his home in order to get a building permit for a proposed remodel. This data is typically obtained through a fire flow test, in which an engineer opens up a hydrant and uses a flow meter to measure the rate and pressure of the water available.

Her sentiments appear to be seconded by incumbent candidate Susan Boyd who states that she “favors a school board election only if people in the community feel that one or more of the board members isn’t doing a good job.” The whole point of an election is to let people in the community decide just what kind of job elected officials are doing.
