Ten Years Ago An Ocean View Boulevard resident used a garden hose to put out a fire that engulfed a bathroom. The cause of the blaze was determined to have been a candle that had been left burning unattended.

After the fires and then the wind that blew black gritty ash down over all of us, I decided I could put it off no longer and I took my long, bristled thingy-on-a-broom- handle, turned on my garden hose (with an auto shut-off nozzle) and began washing down my windows, walls and the ceiling of our veranda. About an hour into this I felt something tickling me and I looked down into the open neck of my shirt and was struck almost dumb with horror as I spied an enormous, brown/black spider right above my bra. Screaming didn’t help — although I tried it. Neither did slapping wildly at my shirt while bent over at the waist.

From the Editor's Desk by CAROL CORMACI Having brutally edited many a column that centered a little too heavily on the weather, I'm loathe to wade in myself with yet another whine about the rain. But geez. This is ridiculous. I wouldn't be quite so ill-humored about it had our sump pump worked properly during the weekend's deluge. We rely on that pump to prevent our front yard (down slope from the street) from flooding when it rains. Things appeared to be working fine with water gushing from our curbside pipe quite nicely Saturday morning.

Beginning with today’s issue, for at least the next few weeks Valley Sun readers can expect to find several news items related to the opening next week of the new Sport Chalet store here. And, as other new businesses at the La Cañada Town Center begin to open in coming months, you’ll no doubt see more. Although some might point to other developments as particularly noteworthy, it’s my belief this is the single most important venture to come to our community since the opening of the La Cañada Country Club (now La Cañada Flintridge Country Club)

Ten Years Ago ... A windstorm with gusts of up to 100 miles per hour battered La Cañada Flintridge New Year's Eve 1995. The warm Santa Ana winds started in the early evening before building force; at about 11:30 p.m. area residents began calling in damage reports. By 7 a.m. Jan. 1, 1996, the winds abated and cleanup began. Twenty Years Ago ... Admitting that the subject of community sewers was controversial in this town -- and such a project "very expensive" -- the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Foothill Boulevard nonetheless advocated the city lay the groundwork for a comprehensive system.

The hottest days I can remember seemed to always happen in August. In the San Diego neighborhood where I grew up, late summer afternoons seemed to always digress into water fights. They would start with squirt guns, move on to water balloons and, invariably, end with the biggest weapon of all: the garden hose. Also invariably, the kid that started the war would complain, once cornered, that “My mom says I can’t get wet.” You can imagine how often this type of protest worked.
