Harold E. Lotze is a bit of a mystery. His parents were immigrants. His father, William, had been born in Germany. His mother, Irma, was born in Poland. His older sister, Louise, was born in Germany in 1916. By 1918, perhaps after Armistice Day on Nov. 11, the Lotze family emigrated to the United States. Their first stop was Arizona, where young Harold was born. He was followed by a little sister, Elsie. By 1921, the family moved to Inglewood, where his father worked as a dental technician.

He wears flip flops to the pool while coaching and hides his thick black mess of hair tucked underneath a ballcap. He?s wearing some swim shorts and a T-shirt and is more appropriately dressed for the beach, though he?s been caught on an off-day. ?I?m not really prepared [for this],? German Lopez said about the interview, laughing. Now he has some big flip flops to fill. After months of deliberation, the La Cañada High School Athletics Department named water polo assistant coach German Lopez as successor to retired head coach Larry Naeve this week.

More than 60 years since his military service during World War II, First Lt. Frank Colella was finally given the awards he was due.  In a ceremony held on Tuesday at his home in La Cañada, Colella was presented with the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Air Medals -- honors he should have been given in 1944. According to Colonel Scott Grundahl, who conducted the ceremony, the Distinguished Flying Cross is one of the highest honors an aviator can receive. The medal was authorized by the Air Corps Act in 1926 and recognizes heroism and extraordinary achievement in an aerial fight.

Angelika Mehren's photogenic face caught my attention as she stood at the Office Depot counter arranging pictures for a color Xerox. I looked at the photos and saw giraffes, monkeys and castles. "Are you an artist?" I asked. "Yes," she said, with a slight German accent. "I am making a display of my children's murals for Babycakes in La Cañada." We talked for a few more minutes. I left the store with an invitation to Angelika's home in Tujunga. When I knocked on the door of Angelika's cottage, I surveyed the huge, bare, dusty lot and thought, "This doesn't seem to match the lady I met at the store, I wonder if I have the wrong address?"
