The American Phenomenon On dreamboats they came traveling far without a home but not without a star. Huddled together on ships they held firm to a promise of a new life in a new world somewhere beyond the sea. Tempest-tossed they were; searching for the New Colossus who held the beacon far above, lighting the way to the Golden Land. Finally, after three arduous weeks at sea ... there! ... she appeared with copper hues reflecting in the sunshine the promise of her message. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

Thoughts From Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia It was an event of 'Sheer Pageantry.' Envisioned and orchestrated by Myra del Valle, The La Cañada Elementary World's Fair 2005 brought Armenia, Austria, China, India, Israel, Italy, Peru, Russia, Germany, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Poland and Switzerland into the school cafeteria; and these distant lands brought a kaleidoscope of costume, tradition, food, color and ethnic influence. It was a sight to see! Fueled by a passion to understand the alchemy of the melting pot, and tempered by her immigrant experience, Myra del Valle brought her vision of cultural understanding to fruition and obviously has planted the seed in our children that we are not islands separate to ourselves.

Last Saturday a carnival was held at Crescenta Valley High School. Although there were many games of chance, great music and entertainment and delicious food the foundation of the event was far from fun. The carnival was to bring attention to the plight of children in Uganda as well as to raise funds to assist them. In late March, CVHS students viewed a documentary titled "Invisible Children." As the film began, three teenagers set off on a trip to Africa not knowing what to expect.

As near as anyone can tell, Santa Claus as we know him today was inspired by an unlikely combination of events that began in 280 A.D. with the birth of one Nicholas Corbis-Bettman in Pataria, a city in Asia Minor. He was by all accounts a generous man of great material wealth, and one who liked to remain anonymous when helping the poor. Legend has it that he gave gifts late at night in order to keep his identity a secret. There are several variations of one of the most famous stories associated with Nicholas, a priest in the Christian church.

Being in any business for 50 years is quite an accomplishment, but a half a decade in the oil business ? that?s something to get revved up about. Since 1958, when he leased his first station in Eagle Rock, moving to La Cañada just a year later, Union 76 dealer Dave Silversparre has been serving drivers with care. ?We are a service station, not a gas station,? Silversparre stressed. The ?service? description is key to what has kept the longtime La Cañada resident in business.

At the Sept. 21 meeting, they voiced complaints, including constant employees loitering, unsafe traffic conditions due to heavy volume, to insufficient parking for the residents themselves.

If you've watched Classic Arts Showcase (locally, it airs on KCET late nights) for any length of time, you've probably caught its mission statement, which tells viewers that it is the program's hope that by providing video clips of the arts, it "may tempt you, the viewer, to go out and feast from the buffet of arts available in your community. " I remembered this mission statement as I've been looking at the buffet, if you will, of Christmas events/celebrations taking place in our local churches and around the area in the next couple of weeks, including some food and gift drives.

I remember what Bilbo Baggins, a character from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” said to his nephew Frodo: “It’s a dangerous business going out the door; you step onto the road and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing what you might be swept off to.” So with that in mind, Kaitzer, the girls, and I boarded the “red eye” and headed to the Keys, an archipelago of 1,700 islands...
