Root rot and recent rains claimed the life of a roughly 200-year-old oak tree that crashed to the ground Tuesday evening next to a home at 625 Georgian Road in La Cañada Flintridge. Homeowner Annie Wasson said it sounded like an earthquake when, at about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the tree abruptly fell and took out a few roof tiles and a security light as it came to rest against the fireplace chimney. She and her 5- and 8-year-old daughters were inside the home when it shook and rattled and they heard the jarring crash of the tree.

More than 600 guests turned out Saturday night at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena for POSH, a gala to raise funds that will provide scholarships to deserving teens who hope to attend St. Francis High School. It was the largest turnout ever for the biannual event. The evening also honored Father Matt Elshoff, OFM Cap., the much-loved former president of the school who was celebrated for serving the campus with distinction from 1992 until last year when he was elected by his peers as Provincial in the Capuchin Franciscan Order?

It was so delightful to wake up on Monday morning to see and smell such a freshly scrubbed world. The teeny bit of rainfall sometime between midnight on Sunday and 6 a.m. on Monday made such a difference in the way the neighborhood looked. I was a little bit sad in a way because just that tiny bit of moisture erased most of the chalk paintings that my grandchildren had left for me in the side patio. My grandkids Catherine, who turned 7 on Monday and Ryan who just turned 4 in October, came to visit me from their Palo Alto home.

With its high hopes and unrivaled support for local public education, La Cañada Flintridge is known as a community that cares deeply about its children. Over the years, a number of La Cañadans who support L.A.’s Catholic Big Brothers Big Sisters mentorship program have quietly extended that concern to kids who haven’t had all the breaks. Such willingness to make a positive impact on young lives is perhaps no better illustrated than by Vance “Mike” Trueblood, who was recently named National Big Brother of the Year from among approximately 170,000 volunteers for nearly 400 Big Brothers groups.

There is a plain, brown, squarish car parked every night in our driveway that has become an unlikely hero to me. It’s 28 years old and of the make that, to most Americans, is the Rodney Dangerfield of the automotive universe, the low-brow Fiat. Do not even consider uttering “Fix it again, Tony” in the presence of my husband, who practically worships at the Agnelli family altar. If do you say something so rude, Gil will just stare at you before turning his back, deeply hurt by your words and disappointed by your ignorance.
