Letters to the Editor Republicans not fiscally responsible Some historical perspective needs to be added to the debate over whether to elect McCain or Obama to the presidency: Americans should not forget the insanely unregulated capitalism of the Reagan era, the reduced taxes and the mortgage-and-spend financial policy that propelled our economy into the savings and loan meltdown and the (until now) biggest national debt ever. We should not forget that in the late 1980s, McCain co-sponsored a resolution to delay new regulations designed to curb risky investments by thrifts such as Lincoln Savings and Loan, which later failed spectacularly at great expense to taxpayers.

In "Ice Age: The Meltdown" the lovable Ice Age mammals are back. Manny the Wooly Mammoth (voiced by Ray Romano), Sid the Sloth (voiced by John Leguizamo) and Diego the Saber Tooth Cat (voiced by Denis Leary) have had a successful herd for a little while, and Sid has opened a camp for kids to play in the melting ice. The valley they had nestled in was surrounded by ice cliffs that acted as a huge dam. The problem is the ice all around them is melting and a great flood is on its way. The only hope for all the other animals and our heroes is a boat at the end of the valley when the flood hits.

I have attended coffees, the forum, and read up on the issues. I encountered many of these issues when our three students went through LCUSD. The same bad teachers still fail to teach the same subjects, so it is not a surprise that the math and science scores have flat-lined at an unacceptably low level; it would have been a surprise if they hadn't. At her coffees and the debate, candidate Ellen Multari says we need another parcel tax, this one as high as $1,000 per-year-per-home, and a 2.5% real estate transfer tax on the sale of homes in LCF. This is the same mistake our board always makes, thinking that you can solve every problem by throwing someone else's money at it. The monies raised will not solve the mismanagement of the district by this school board.

Ten Years Ago A herd of 250 goats arrived by transporter truck that brought them from Lakeview, Ore. to Descanso Gardens to serve in a vegetation management capacity, eating brush to reduce fire fuel. They were in La Cañada for a one-month stay, during which it was expected they would thin out the brush across 13 acres. Twenty Years Ago La Cañada resident Sue Schecter, then serving as president of the Lanterman Historical Museum Foundation, was appointed to the State Historical Resources Commission by Gov. Pete Wilson.

If things go as planned by La Cañada Flintridge investor Dr. Sandra Wallace, there will be a run on shoulder-high, two-toed, furry camelids. “This is a business,” said Wallace, a neurologist who owns 51 alpacas of various hues and two varieties with her husband, Dr. Michael Frankel, a psychiatrist. “We really want to develop this industry.” In fact, said Wallace, an infectious disease specialist at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, good alpaca buys are out there.

A herd of milk cows, a flock of sheep, a battalion of "hugging Christian grannies" and enough school supplies to fill a warehouse. These were all part of the final accounting for the Christmas Market at La Cañada Presbyterian Church, an outreach project that raised $102,361 for needy causes around the world and across the Arroyo Seco. "God gets all the credit for this," said the Rev. Jim Milley, associate pastor for outreach and equipping at La Cañada Presbyterian Church. Contributions were up a staggering 76 percent from the previous year's Christmas Market, which meant a number of the church's ministry partners got a much-needed boost.

You are familiar with the situation. It's early morning and you are snuggled all warm and comfy-cozy in your bed. The alarm is not going to ring for a while yet. The covers are a hundred times softer and warmer than when you got beneath them last night, and the bed seems to have molded itself to your contours and is wonderfully … SCREECH! SCHEEECHH-EEEAAACH!! The first time I was rudely jerked awake by these ungodly vocalizations, I had absolutely no idea what they were.

I’m attracted to historic roadside markers and broken down buildings filled with dusty old stuff, so the Shoshone museum just outside the southeast corner of Death Valley was a likely place for me to stop. Poking around the faded pictures and the rusty old things of people’s pasts can give one a sense of place. “Daddy,” Simone said, “who can live in such a lonely place? There’s nothing to do.” I wasn’t sure how to answer her because the physics of beauty has never been solved.
