?You have a lump.? These four words are probably some of the most frightening in a woman?s life. These four words are what Janet Hayn heard from her doctor a little over a year ago. ?I told the doctor it wasn?t there,? Hayn said. ?He said, ?Yes it is,? and put my hand on it and I said, ?Oh my God, I have a lump.?? Hayn, a resident of neighboring Montrose, learned of the lump on Aug. 27, 2007. Since then she has been living in a world she thought she would never have to enter.

Dear Santa: With very few exceptions (and they know who they are), most of us here in La Cañada Flintridge have behaved ourselves all year long and join together in making this Christmas request: Please see if you can put a bug in your friend Mother Nature's ear on our behalf. Ask her to tone down her behavior until such time as our hillsides, laid bare more than a year ago at the hands of a still unknown arsonist (surely not one of us!) can regroup and regenerate. Really. That's all we need, Santa.

When Veronica Cleveland first heard that a lump had been discovered on her breast, she refused to believe it. ?At first, I said ?No, I don?t,? recalled the 49-year-old Crescenta Valley woman, whose name has been changed here to protect her privacy. ?But then [my doctor] put my hand on it and I said, ?Yes, I do?.? She was at her annual gynecological exam this past August when her doctor found the lump. After the discovery, her doctor ordered a mammogram for the next day, followed by a biopsy four days later.

by Charly Shelton Members of the Gay- Straight Alliance (GSA) Club at Crescenta Valley High walked with the hundreds of other participants in the 21st Annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, held on the streets of West Hollywood last Saturday, Oct. 16. The AIDS Walk of Los Angeles is a 10 kilometer, or 6.5 mile, walk through West Hollywood that goes up Melrose and back down Beverly. Participants collect sponsors who donate money either in one lump sum or by kilometers walked. Then the walkers do just that: walk the 10 kilometers to raise the money for the AIDS Project Los Angeles to fund AIDS research.

Capt. Clark extended his hand. “Take a seat left-tenant,” he said. I did, opposite him on an 81-Mike-Mike ammo crate. He brought me up to speed on enemy movements, their strength, weaponry and combat readiness. We were operating 20 clicks from Phouc Tuy, and the intelligence would prove to be fortuitous. With devilish good looks, Clark was an image from a Kipling novel. He was an Aussie, SAS (Strategic Air Service). The Viet Cong called them ma rung , phantoms of the jungle.

Back in the ’70s, “Hey man—got any bread?” meant “Do you have any money?” Your response would have indicated the status of your wallet, or your “dough.” Our culture seems to love bread so much we even nicknamed our currency after it. Our high consumption of it has made gluten intolerance about as common as credit card debt. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt and (without being specified on the label) in countless processed foods.

Though the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation's Annual Jog-a-Thon entered its 14th year of raising funds for local schools on Wednesday, it finally reached the 21st century as its fundraising drive went online for the first time ever. Students at Paradise Canyon, Palm Crest and La Cañada Elementary schools spent 20 minutes of their P.E. classes jogging. Their supporters could make donations for each lap run, or as a lump sum. The Jog-a-Thon's online presence is the brainchild of Steve Preiss, a member of the foundation's board.

It started out as a small, personal gesture between friends. In October 2008, La Cañada Flintridge resident Kathy Waller gave her best friend a St. Christopher necklace as a sign of support and protection after her friend's diagnosis with breast cancer. "It is just a really scary time," Waller said. "There is so much information that you are getting from doctors and the Internet. It is so overwhelming. You just need to have a friend. " A few weeks later, during a visit to her obstetrician-gynecologist, Waller, 52, got her own diagnosis — there was a massive lump in her right breast and 17 "hot spots" in her left breast.

Bent over, holding a dust pan, sweeping my driveway, I was startled when a gentle small voice asked, "Can I show you something?" As I straightened up, I recognized my neighbor boy Georgie Vine. He was clutching a tiny wiggling thing that I fearedy I would have to inspect more closely. Luckily, Gretchen was nearby, weeding under the lemon tree. She walked over to meet Georgie's new pet albino corn snake. "What's his name?" Gretchen asked. "Slider," Georgie replied with pride.

Seven years after his first wife, Mary, died of cancer, Glendale school board member and past president Chakib “Chuck” Sambar, a resident of La Cañada Flintridge, is facing the disease again with his current wife, Lois. But, though he calls it a “terrible, tragic disease,” Sambar is hopeful for the future and confident strides in cancer research have progressed in recent years. Those strides are a direct result of public support through donations and participation in fund-raising efforts, such as the upcoming Foothills Relay for Life, Sambar said.
