When anyone speaks of the Verdugo Hills Golf Course I’m reminded of one of my favorite experiences in life, the spectacularly clear, late Sunday afternoon in the early ’80s when I whupped my husband there during a “friendly” round of golf. His first tee shot soared into a tree and never dropped to terra firma, giving me an early lead. It was the first time I had smelled victory in any contest with him other than in a game of Scrabble. The confidence that came from realizing Mr. I’m-Better-At-Sports-Than-You-Are had made such an error on the first hole of an easy, three-par course propelled me to beat him on all nine holes we played that day. (He wasn’t about to go for 18 after that.

Thank you for your article on the Raymond Theatre.  I have been a longtime supporter of the cause and appreciate your updates.  It would be nice to have updates on the Raymond Theatre in La Crescenta Valley Sun edition also. Everywhere we look, our history is being taken, with no reverence to our past, only to ensure the highest and best use of every parcel of land in LA.  It seems everywhere we look condo's are being built faster than we can fill them!  Do we have to wait till the real estate market goes bust, to finally catch our breaths long enough to realize hat we have lost?

the support The La Canada Flintridge Trails Council Board members would like to thank all the citizens who came to our annual Family Trail Hike. We had over one hundred trail users, both adults and children, visit our hospitality table where they received trail maps, refreshments, and directions for this year's hike along the Gould Canyon Trail. Our Junior Board Members, LCHS students, provided activities and information for younger hikers. We are indebted to our local newspapers for promoting our Trail Day. The vast majority of people told us that they heard about Trail Day by reading about it in the newspaper.

Two brothers from a La Cañada family are currently serving in combat together in the 1st Squad Cavalry Regiment, 5th Brigade Combat Team in Baghdad, Iraq. By sheer coincidence, 1st Lt. Matthew Wehri was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas-the same unit as his older brother, Capt. Christopher Wehri. They were both later deployed to Iraq. Both brothers share a mutual desire to serve their country through the military as officers. "Growing up we moved around a lot because of my dad, who worked in England during the time the Berlin Wall fell," said Capt.

As world leaders in Copenhagen last week negotiated a global response to the threat of impending climate change, a different meeting of the minds was taking place in San Francisco. As many as 15,000 of the world’s leading scientists in astrophysics, oceanography and Earth science convened at the American Geophysical Union conference in an attempt to better understand the scope of changing weather patterns and what it could mean for future generations. Among them was JPL scientist and longtime La Cañada resident Moustafa Chahine.

The day was perfect. The weather was perfect. And the atmosphere was perfect to plant a tree in Mayors' Discovery Park on April 25, when the city of La Cañada Flintridge celebrated Arbor Day. Under the warm sun, 13 community leaders with shovels at hand tossed soil onto the newly planted sapling. "It's a little crooked right now," said Mayor David Spence, looking at the tree that was tilting slightly to his right. "It's a great tree," he continued. "And we will make sure we continue to be a Tree City."

When Rep. David Dreier advertises his experience in public office we should recognize this includes experience advocating anti-American policies and experience speaking falsely. Dreier calls himself an "internationalist" and wants to surrender American sovereignty and border enforcement to the Free Trade of the Americas for the benefit of his multinational sponsors. Do you want an America for your children, grandchildren and future generations which is merged with all other nations of the western hemisphere?

The soon-to-be 25 nations of the European Union (EU) are poised to submit to a 263-page European Constitution and surrender much of their national sovereignty to a central government in Brussels. Is this important to us in LCF? If you care about your family and future generations of Americans it is vitally important because it could be a preview of horrors for us. Some American politicians are trying to impose a central government modeled after the EU on the 34 free nations of the western hemisphere, deceitfully calling it the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA)

I come from a family of three LCHS graduates, as well as being a former Karen Mealiffe art student. Although I wasn't as talented as some of the other students in my class, "Mealiffe" (as some of the students called her) always encouraged me and brought out talents I never thought I had. She would always take extra time to help me out when I needed it. For that, I will always be grateful to her - there was always something you could tell about her - she was always dedicated to the students.

After Emily Bernstein recorded the clarinet solo for the score of the motion picture "The Terminal," director Steven Spielberg - a former clarinetist himself - insisted that Bernstein's name appear in the film's end credits, although traditionally individual musicians performing in studio orchestras remain anonymous. Bernstein considered this experience, which took place in March 2004 between chemotherapy treatments, not only a great honor but an even greater source of comfort.
