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.

Oh my, Mother Nature is stirring the pot a wee bit too vigorously. Oppressive heat and melting humidity have been the ingredients for her bubbling summer stew. My antique air conditioner just can't keep up and I'm wilting. How about you? A couple of days ago when the weather was breaking all sorts of heat index records; there wasn't even a whisper of a breeze to cool us down. This simply isn't the California I grew up in when my mother, as the sun was just setting, would raise all the windows in our front and dining rooms and the cross breeze was so refreshing.
