For La Cañada Flintridge residents Barbara and John Burrows this past week has been an emotional roller-coaster ride. A week ago today they were contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department notifying them that after a 14-year search they had apprehended the truck driver who fled the scene after he smashed into the car of their son, Doug, leaving him to die in his burning vehicle on a downtown LA street. The suspect was arrested at the border between Mexicali, Mexico and Calexico in the U.S. John Burrows was asked by a reporter at a press conference held Monday at LAPD's Central Traffic Department, if he felt a sense of closure now that the driver of the truck had been caught and charged with manslaughter.

Justice was finally served last week in the case of a fatal hit and run that occurred 15 years ago, and killed a 29-year-old La Cañada man, former Valley Sun photographer Doug Burrows. Just as trial was set to begin last week for Rogelio Pereira, 56, the defendant pleaded no contest (guilty) to vehicular manslaughter and felony hit and run. Pereira, who became a U.S. citizen in 1976 after emigrating from Mexico, was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Drew Edwards in Los Angeles Superior Court to more than 11 years in prison, and will be eligible for parole after 85% of that time has been served, a representative of the district attorney?

This was the second meeting of the newly formed Committee to Preserve La Cañada and Support the Hillside Ordinance. "The City passed the Hillside Ordinance in 2002 for the protection of our residents and our environment and we want to see it enforced", said Dr. Victor Levine.

Right on schedule we are having a mixed bag of weather to usher in this new season. A little bit of June gloom and a dash of early summer seems to be the right concoction for spring. It was more on the summer evening side when more than 90 “Floaters” gathered at the home of Barbara Marshall last Friday when she hosted the LCF Tournament of Roses Association’s March Happy Hour. True to the format that makes everyone happy there was a lavish display of hors d’oeuvres and desserts to taste and a variety of libations to whet a whistle.

The big Labor Day celebration that always marks the transition from summer to fall has just flown by us. In the old days, the men and women of fashion had to put away their white clothes and shoes until the next June. Here in Southern California, the old rules don't seem to apply as stringently. All the beautiful wool fashions in the rich, earthy colors of autumn that the East Coast people are donning just don't work here when it is in the 80s - and even 90s - until the end of October.
COMMUNITY

Whew! I was a busy bunny this past weekend. All five of my own grandchildren, plus two more who have adopted me as their “YaYa,” were here for the grand Easter Sunday egg hunt in my backyard. It is amazing how much energy seven little people between the ages of 5 and 12 can expend. We had a fabulous time and I'm quite sure we may have missed a couple of eggs that we might not find until July or so. Hope everyone had a happy holiday week. -- I do have a couple of events to tell you about - you know our community members are quite involved in so many different projects, benefits and other sundry activities.
