California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown Thursday declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles County due to a series of high-powered storms that battered the Southland this week and forced the evacuation of more than 500 homes in local foothill communities. Five days of inclement weather has snarled traffic, hampered air travel and forced the closure of schools. In the Station fire burn areas, public safety officials continued to sound alarm bells even as the fourth and most powerful rainstorm began to break Thursday night.

Conservative fiscal management proved prudent both for the city and the La Cañada Unified School District, both of which navigated the downturn well in comparison with other tax dollar-supported entities. The recession would turn out to be only a small part of the story in La Cañada in 2009.
