One of the area?s most meaningful events of the year will occur at 9 p.m. Saturday night at the Clark Magnet High School track. That?s when hundreds of candles in decorated bags ? or luminaries ? will be lit and names read in honor of those who have survived or lost their battle with cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death in America for people under the age of 85, and, as such, has touched most families in some way. That?s why so many local residents and businesses plan to take part in this year?

Children attending Crescenta-Cañada Nursery School watched recently as their caterpillars morphed into butterflies. Busy Bears (4-year-olds) and Darling Ducklings (3-year-olds) gathered at Memorial Park to set their butterflies free with school director Nita Imm. The school has been teaching and caring for preschool aged children for more than 55 years. As a cooperative, it is guided by a volunteer board of directors. Parents join together to manage the day-to-day activities and maintenance of the school.

Although it was once a center exclusive to card-carrying members, the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA hopes to become a place where residents can simply stop and take a break. One recent development leading the transformation is the Community Café, which opened in April. The kitchen offers coffee and healthy breakfast items like an egg white panini. Sandwiches, salads and smoothies are offered throughout the day. Tyler Wright, the president and chief executive officer of the YMCA of the Foothills, said a woman who was not a member recently approached him and asked him if she could buy something at the café.

Letters to the Editor Open Letter to Rep. Dreier OK, I give up, Congressman. I'm tossing in the towel. I surrender. The past five months, I have contacted your office three times by mail — I figure that's a buck seventeen in postage I have blown — and seven times by telephone. I've had no response from you folks; not a peep, not a letter, not a call, not a fax or e-mail. Zip. Nada. I don't mind telling you I'm having a difficult time dealing with this rejection.

The steady drumbeat of bear sightings in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains reached a crescendo last week, with two unusual incidents punctuating a season full of bear activity. Bear-turned-celebrity Meatball, aka Glen Bearian, saw his run in the sun come to an end. After several visits to residential neighborhoods above Glendale, the bear with 28,000 Twitter followers was lured into a trap by a McDonald's Happy Meal. Department of Fish and Game officials had grown weary of tranquilizing Glen Bearian and hauling him deep into the woods, only to see him return.
