Members of the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. memorialized one of their own Saturday morning in a ceremony behind the Foothill Municipal Water District, where they dedicated an inscribed drinking fountain to longtime “floater” Carol Imbriale. Imbriale joined the Tournament of Roses Assn. after moving to La Cañada in 1983. She tirelessly built and decorated the city's annual entries in the Rose Parade, serving as chair of the decorating committee for a time and co-driving the float twice in her long tenure.

Just northeast of California?s Gold Country, the roadways heading toward Lake Tahoe reveal a wonderland of outdoor scenery and recreational opportunities. Closed to cross-mountain travel in winter, Highway 4 opens in summer to connect with Highway 89. This route will take you from Angel?s Camp through the charming town of Murphys, right by Calaveras Big Trees State Park, the recreation-oriented town of Arnold and then up through heavily wooded mountain areas where you?ll find Bear Valley Ski Area, Markleeville and then another world of recreational possibilities in Hope Valley.

Fire demonstrations Monday at a Los Angeles County Fire Department fire camp near the entrance of Jet Propulsion Laboratory showed that multi agency cooperation is key to knocking down blazes fast. Firefighters from local, state and federal agencies combined forces to extinguish mock fires, using everything from intelligence-gathering devices and helicopters to fire lines and foam to put out flames fast. "It was a very, very good and interesting demonstration. The purpose was to show the cooperation and coordinated strength of the California fire service and how we can respond together and work efficiently on each other's fires," said Jim Wright, deputy chief of fire protection for the California Department of Forestry.

Part 2   Midnight in La Cañada. I was reading about the Frank Sinatra Jr. kidnapping. On the theory that all roads lead to La Cañada Flintridge, I had immersed myself in an ancient stack of notes and clippings, mostly delivered by the Anonymous Source, an attractive lady in her 40s who has a flair for local history. I continued reading: “At the age of 21, Keenan had become the youngest member of the Los Angeles Stock Exchange the next year, at the age of 23, Keenan decided that a kidnaping for ransom would be the solution to his economic problems “Keenan rationalized that he would be doing the Sinatra family a favor because it would bring the family closer together ” Barry Worthington Keenan, of course, was one of three men who kidnapped Frank Sinatra Jr. on Dec. 8, 1963, at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.

Southland residents are being urged to continue water conservation efforts as climatologists predict a dry, La Niña year ahead. Rainfall last year, 16.63 inches, was just 8% higher than the annual average of 15.1 inches as measured in downtown Los Angeles from July 1, 2009, through this month, said Bill Patzert, a climatologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Rainfall in La Cañada Flintridge, as measured at Descanso Gardens, was 31.72 inches. Rainfall in the foothills is typically twice that in downtown L.A. because of the higher altitude, Patzert said.

There are times when getting away means getting together — a chance to meet with friends, family or co-workers in a setting that is far away from your everyday life. But those who have planned such events come away with a new appreciation for the logistical challenges of, say, the D-Day Invasion. Whether you're planning a family reunion, a weekend with several couples or the mother of all business retreats, it's not quite as simple as calling up to book a few rooms. There are the numbers to consider — cost and number of available accommodations — and the location.

The center of the skiing universe in California could be in the Lake Tahoe area or perhaps the big-time ski resort at Mammoth Mountain, but skiers and snowboarders looking for slopes a little more on the quiet side will find more than they imagined at Bear Valley. While not on a par with Squaw Valley or Heavenly or other major California ski resorts, the Bear Valley ski area is still a prime candidate for a weekend or even an extended skiing vacation. As we discovered in early February, Bear Valley offers a surprisingly complete ski vacation experience no frills, to be sure, but still rewarding and well worth the trip deep into the Sierra Nevada range.
