I don’t know what the big hoopla was about last Friday night. The way Kaitzer was giving orders and meticulously attending to every detail, you’d think that Sabine and Simone were leaving for college. Granted, the girls were performing in the production of “The Rock Singer and His Greatest Hit,” but they weren’t going to the moon. Since she was teaching all day, Kaitzer had punctiliously laid out all the girls’ clothes, sewed and ironed their costumes, left snacks in the fridge, prepared dinner, and left me explicit instructions on how to get the girls to La Cañada Presbyterian at precisely 6:45 p.m. You’d think she didn’t trust me. As she walked out the door she said with a supercilious grin, “Can you do the girls’ make-up?

James Luna could dance the “Nutcracker Suite” in his sleep. That’s how it is for most seasoned professional ballet dancers, who can rack up as many as 30 performances of the beloved Tchaikovsky favorite in a single Christmas season. With decades of professional dancing on stages throughout the nation and in Canada, Luna estimates he’s done the Nutcracker at least 200 times in the course of his career. But this year, his performance as Uncle Drosselmeyer in a “Nut Crack’n Knight 2,” a hip hop-inspired twist on the beloved classic being presented Dec. 20 at the Lanterman Theater in La Cañada, will be like no other before it. That’s because, for a few brief moments, the La Crescenta resident will share the stage with 5-year-old Ginger Duncan.

Merle Norman Cosmetics in Montrose was abuzz with activity on Saturday afternoon as high school upper-classmen prepared for their 2007 prom. Young women from both La Cañada High School and Crescenta Valley High School sat across from each other as their pretty faces were enhanced by Kris Kline and sister Kim Kelly, owners of the Montrose Merle Norman. About 28 girls in all were "made up" by professional make-up artists, with appointments starting as early as 10:30 a.m. By 5 p.m., the team of artists were ready to relax.

The event was pretty much what La Cañada City Councilman David Spence imagined when in the 1990s he urged the city to begin a community Music in the Park event. Spence previously told the Valley Sun he’d been to Maine nearly 20 years ago and seen a community park event where everyone gathered to enjoy an evening together and hear the community band play. The event was a lot of fun and people vacationing from all over came out to hear the band play, he said. In a similar fashion, hundreds of folks gathered last Sunday night at Memorial Park, prepared with blankets, lawn chairs, picnic baskets and, in some cases, the family pet, ready for an evening of entertainment, relaxation, and family fun. They weren’t disappointed.

The proposed remodel and expansion of the Vons market on Foothill Boulevard gained approval of the city’s planning and design commissions earlier this month and, assuming the city’s requested additional details are provided by the company, folks could see work begin in the coming year. That’s giving some residents high expectations for the potential of recent development in La Cañada Flintridge. “I’m very excited about Vons’ interest in moving forward and upgrading the store, as well as the center,” said Mayor Pro Tem Stephen Del Guercio.

Gone are the days when Girl Scouts would simply ring neighborhood doorbells singing promises of Thin Mints and TagaLongs, or stand outside the grocery store providing one more chance for an extra box of Samoas. This year, the scouts at Mt. Wilson Vista Girl Scout Council have found a few more lucrative ways to sell these coveted spring sweets: Girl Scout Cookies. Sarah Hughes, 9, is member of the Juliettes Girl Scout program in La Cañada. She has always been a top seller, with box counts in the hundreds, but this year she found a way to sell even more.
