So far this fiscal year, the city has seen a net increase of $202,875 in general fund revenue and has spent $1,450 less than it was expecting to when the City Council passed the budget last June. But, with new projects on the books - including the construction of sound walls along the Foothill (210) Freeway, maintenance upgrades at Lanterman Auditorium and a project to prevent rock slides on Foothill Boulevard - the city must adjust its projections upward to the tune of $250,450.

La Cañada Flintridge has seen a 17% reduction in crime over the past five years and experienced about a 9% drop in 2013, according to a report presented to the City Council at its regular meeting last week. Among the highlights of the report was a 26.71% reduction in residential burglaries last year, which Capt. Bill Song, commander of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, attributed to beefed-up patrols and old-fashioned detective work. "Our deputies have been doing a great job out there being visible and proactive," Song said.

The December appointment of Foothill Municipal Water District Board President Richard Atwater to the National Academy of Sciences Committee (NASC) came at a time when, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor analysis, 85% of California was categorized as experiencing a severe drought. 2014 is shaping up to be no better, exacerbating the issue on the heels of a record year in which many locations across California reported record lows in rainfall. Atwater, a La Cañada Flintridge resident, has been on the Foothill Municipal Water District Board since 1986, and his appointment to the NASC includes a two-year term.

We have reached the middle of the first month of this new year - went pretty quickly, huh? I finally got around to taking my Christmas decorations down. I love this holiday so much that I take my own sweet time in putting away the ornaments that I have collected from all over the world. Each ornament is wrapped in tissue paper and carefully laid in a container until next year. However, I can't say that my neighbors are too eager to give up this holiday, because their houses are still lit up like it was Christmas Eve. This is a strange part of the year and it seems like many of our community members are hibernating and recharging their batteries.
