An ongoing battle over the city’s peafowl population escalated at the La Cañada Flintridge City Council meeting on Monday during which one resident hinted he wanted to shoot the birds and another called for the removal of the neighbors rather than her feathered friends. Mayor Laura Olhasso, Mayor Pro Tem Don Voss and Councilman Steve Del Guercio hesitantly decided to continue with the city’s peafowl management plan, rather than remove the flock from the area entirely.

L ast week I was honored and thrilled to attend the Mass of Reception for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles' Coadjutor Archbishop Jose H. Gomez. The Mass, attended by more than 4,000 people, was the "hottest Catholic ticket around," according to a friend and former young adult ministry colleague of mine. Indeed, the May 26 event was by invitation only, and packed. The atmosphere outside the cathedral was a mixture of anger, cautious optimism and delight for the new archbishop. Many welcomed Gomez with open arms, with some people singing and bursting into prayers of thanks to God having bestowed such a fine prelate upon the people of the archdiocese.

Peafowl, mountain lions and coyotes, beware! Your days of harassing and attacking area pets and households might be numbered, as local citizens are banding together to effect your disappearance from our streets. The outcry was heard loud and clear during Monday night’s city council meeting. (Like some kind of junkie I tune into the community access TV channel for council meetings. I don’t advise you to get started unless you have a high tolerance for long hearings and don’t mind missing “Dancing with the Stars.

Three days a week, at 4:30 a.m., Glendale resident Sue Feehan rolls out of bed, pulls on her workout clothes and heads to the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA. She does 30 minutes of circuit training, 30 minutes of free weight training and an hour swim before heading home. She is done before some people are even out of their pajamas. "You feel in the clear," Feehan said of her early exercise routine. "It is done for the day. You fit it in, and you can [focus on] your work and your priorities.

I hope that all of you have your air conditioning ducts and filters clean and thermostats calibrated in readiness for the heat wave that has been forecast for this weekend. It's hard to believe that high temps will be here so soon. California crazy weather is just ramping up. Also ramping up are philanthropic benefits. The Pasadena Showcase House of Design opened up with great fanfare on April 21. Design aficionados are flocking to this beautiful Monterey Colonial home built in 1941 in a lovely Arcadia neighborhood.

It?s almost a case of a local guy makes good. If you take out of the equation the part where he?s already been an established television comedy writer for such shows as Saturday Night Live, Talk Soup and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. And, though he has lived in Montrose and the Crescenta Valley for the past 12 years, he grew up next to the cornfields and dairy farms of western Massachusetts. But, La Cañada and the Crescenta Valley are still ready to claim this talented 38-year-old who took his locally spawned comic strip to new heights this week.

For Christians the world over, the week preceding Easter, which commemorates the Passion, the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, and the Resurrection, is one of the most observed of religious holidays. Easter follows Lent, the 40 days prior to Easter, not including Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. On Easter Sunday, Christians flock to their respective churches in numbers far exceeding those normally seen during regular Sunday services and, according to local clergy, more mainstream churches are finding it difficult to fill with members on a regular basis.

It's Thanksgiving, but turkeys aren't the only birds that are on the minds of La Cañada Flintridge residents who flocked to City Hall Monday night when the City Council took its annual look at the city's peafowl management plan. Of the dozen residents who made their voices heard on the issue during the meeting, seven said that the current plan isn't working, and that the flock, which is largely centered around Haskell Street and Vista Lejana Lane, needs to be removed. The city's current management plan dictates that the flock size be maintained at three peacocks and six peahens, with the excess birds being trapped and relocated by Mike Maxcy of the L.A. Zoo, at the city's expense.

To some, the two dozen peafowl who remain wild in the hillside area above Angeles Crest Highway near tiny Glenola Park are inspiring for their novelty and beauty. To many others, the noisy, messy birds make for lousy neighbors. But neither side in the years-long debate over whether to allow wild peacocks and peahens to remain in La Cañada is likely to stop squawking anytime soon. Following a series of impassioned arguments from a dozen residents who spoke both for and against total peafowl removal, City Council members decided Monday to step up efforts to trap and relocate some of the birds — only not in great enough numbers to harm the flock's ability to reproduce, leaving neither side completely satisfied.
