Already famous for being home of JPL, having incredibly high test scores and a lack of sports playing fields, La Cañada has added another feather in its cap with the new discovery of rock migration. The incredible observation was made last month by a group of Frisbee players while playing Frisbee golf in Hahamonga Park. Hahamonga, by the way, is an Indian word that means "the joke is on you." The young men were finishing up their game when two of them noticed the line of rocks move ever so slightly.

Letters to the Editor The Nov. school board race needed Anyone who is planning on voting in the November school board election should be very concerned by the comments of former school board member Ron Dietel. In his guest column last week [“Program not a ‘STEP’ ahead”] he described the STEP program that the current school board is so proud of. This program sacrifices time from study of important subjects like math, science and English to make room for teaching students how to play Hearts, do needle point, throw a Frisbee and how to cook.

Slightly more than 600 students arrived on the premises of La Cañada Elementary School and La Cañada High School three weeks ago to begin summer enrichment classes offered by Assistance League of Flintridge. This summer's sessions mark the 29th year that the League has developed and administered the program, which includes new classes in pottery, jazz improvisation, the world of Harry Potter and Frisbee golf. The annual summer school program is the League's largest philanthropic community project, requiring hundreds of volunteer hours and many different skills to bring the program to fruition, according to ALF member Linda Johnson.

From the Editor's Desk by Carol Cormaci So, I duck out of town for an all-too-brief week's vacation and come back to find we have a new mayor, and a new principal for La Cañada High School has been hired. And that's just the beginning of the changes taking place around here as we come out of a suspended, drenched state of affairs we'll all fondly remember as the winter of 2005. I also learn that in my absence two-thirds of the high school interns providing slave labor here at our office have, after suffering too long a wait, received the glorious news that there are some very fine universities eager to help them expand their horizons.

I think it was a very good idea to open up the new park in La Cañada. Before that, the only park to play at was the Memorial Park. That park was getting over crowded and it was a little bit far for some people to drive there. The new park next to the freeway is very fun. The fountain inside the smaller area of the park is very interesting to look at and for small children to play with. It is a lot closer to where I live, so it is a more convenient place to go. The bathrooms are also very clean and pleasant.

Unknown to many of our LCF residents, two French tour companies have been quietly operating in town. Grace Liealot interviewed the owners of the two companies to get some insight on their unique business. Jacques Coostoe has operated La Tour for over two years. A native of France, Jacques moved to La Cañada by mistake. "I thought zis was Canada, but it was good. Now people come here and they say the same thing. They think it is very warm for Canada." Françoise Paree has just opened his own tour company.
