Dear Friends, Etiquette is about principles and customs handed down through generations based on kindness and consideration toward others. I enjoy sharing these principles with you. The New Year of 2007 is quickly approaching. Some important words to remember are those of Ronald Reagan. When he said, "We are one nation under God. When we forget this, we are one nation gone under." I would like to share a prayer for 2007 and an adaptation of a poem by Helen Steiner Rice: God grant us that this year we will have a wider view so that we can see others' faults through the eyes of You. Teach us not to judge the adult nor the young with a hasty tongue.

My definition of class comes from my own personal discoveries and experience. I discovered many years ago that money does not mean class, and class does not mean money. I discovered that a person of first class never treats someone second class. I discovered that class evolves from how you treat others in your home, in your family, in your workplace, out in the world, and when no one else is looking. Especially, a person with class treats family members with honor, respect, and dignity.

Continued from last week's column: The judge peered above his spectacles, fixating on the mustard stain on my sweatshirt. He wanted an explanation. “Your honor, extra mustard on a Berge's sandwich,” I said. Would justice prevail over my disheveled appearance?

A La Cañada Flintridge couple has put their 12,000-square-foot home on the market for $13.3 million, setting a local record price. The property is expansive, offering clear views of the San Gabriel Mountains and a woodsy backyard with several bridges and an open space for entertaining. The driveway leading up to the house is filled with hand-cut Australian cobblestone, one of many touches that the owners have added. But Robin Dorman said the property has become too large for her and her husband, Rod Dorman, since they purchased it 14 years ago. The couple's two sons have grown up and moved into their own homes.

Forty years ago, more than 1,000 La Cañada Flintridge residents set foot on the Foothill (210) Freeway for the first and likely only time, toasting the completion of the highway. They danced, dined and drank on the roadway during the fundraiser hosted by the Assistance League of Flintridge.

It's got a name, it's got a view and it's got a famed architect who echoed the work of Frank Lloyd Wright in his design. And it's on the market. The Endicott home, named for the first family that lived there, was designed in 1966 by noted local architect Jack Simison. It came on the market in the spring and potential buyers have been touring it during recent open houses. The home is perched high on a ridge at the top of Domal Lane in La Cañada with views to the San Gabriel Mountains and Arroyo Seco corridor, southward to the Los Angeles basin and to the Pacific Ocean.

I first met Father Greg Boyle three years ago when he came to speak to the young-adult ministry I was involved in at the time. We were thrilled and honored to have someone who has made a difference in thousands of lives take time out of his busy schedule to come speak to us about his two decades of work with gang members. Father Boyle is known around the country for his work with some of Los Angeles’ fiercest gang members. His flagship company, Homeboy Industries, based in downtown Los Angeles, is a staple in the community and serves as a beacon of hope for young men and women looking to turn their lives around.
