Thoughts from Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia Often, I take a casual glance and peek though the window of the past. Not so much to return but to understand the cause and effect of why something is what it is. I've wondered; "Why do I love Halloween?" Is it the fall colors; a chance to be someone else, a harvest moon and apples, the treats or the tricks, pumpkins, make-believe, or is it an opportunity to explore an evening of mystery? The answer is seldom found within the confines of one's own rationale.

Vigen Sogomonyan's rich style is fascinating and captivating in its simplicity. His world is a dimension where dreams can transform into reality, a world created by delicate mixture of bright colors and deep shadows as well as smooth sensuous curves and surfaces which are lush and inviting. His imaginary characters are presented in exotic and colorful costumes while captured during mysterious and intriguing interactions, sometimes with unusual but symbolic objects. The artist uses intense and vivid colors to exude the perpetual turmoil which exists inside the human core.

It’s unlikely to have grown up in the Crescenta Valley and not know at least a little about former sanitarium Rockhaven, said Bob McFall, Glendale’s assistant city manager, and La Crescenta resident. The ivy-covered, wrought iron gates and brick walls lend an aura of mystery to its little section of Honolulu Boulevard in Montrose. Which is why, when the city of Glendale recently purchased the property, many city employees wanted to get inside and get a glimpse at what lay behind those walls, McFall said.

In the 1970s, our neighbor, Hazel Castevens, told us that in the 1880s, the Wells Fargo Pony Express dropped off the mail at what today is the west end of the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA parking lot, right near the entrance to Rancho Canyada Road. A few weeks ago, my husband, Len, and I visited the Wells Fargo & Co. Museum on Montgomery Street in San Francisco, where a historian named Marianne Babel burst our bubble. Babel is the vice president of Wells Fargo Historical Services.

As a community service, the Around Town column will occasionally supplement the Valley Sun 10-20-30 Years Ago feature with news from 19th century. For example, last week, we brought you news from 137 years ago. (“Neighborhood news from 1885,” June 13.) Perhaps in response to the largesse of the Around Town column, LCHS Class of 2013 valedictorian Matt Jones, in one of the world's greatest and most awesome commencement speeches ever, told the audience, “Let's just appreciate the now.” In that spirit, the Around Town column will move forward.

Sunday will mark the fifth year since Harold and Joni Tillman were seen alive at their La Cañada Flintridge home. Four days after a neighbor saw the Tillmans' Dodge Durango slip into their garage on Bramblewood Road the night of Feb. 6, 2000, detectives unearthed the couple's bodies near a wash in a nondescript area of Yucaipa. The cause of death: strangulation. Now, San Bernardino County Sheriff's homicide detectives continue their search for the person or persons responsible for the murders of Harold Tillman, who was 55, and his wife Joni, who was 51. Some initial suspects have been ruled out. San Bernardino County Sheriff's Spokesman Chip Patterson said investigators have a long way to go before additional suspects are identified.

Harold E. Lotze is a bit of a mystery. His parents were immigrants. His father, William, had been born in Germany. His mother, Irma, was born in Poland. His older sister, Louise, was born in Germany in 1916. By 1918, perhaps after Armistice Day on Nov. 11, the Lotze family emigrated to the United States. Their first stop was Arizona, where young Harold was born. He was followed by a little sister, Elsie. By 1921, the family moved to Inglewood, where his father worked as a dental technician.

When we moved to La Cañada in 1976, our neighbor, Hazel Castevens, regaled us with historical anecdotes. Hazel was a retired pharmacist. When we first met, she was a spry 80-year-old who liked to fix the neighbors a “Midwestern supper,” consisting of baked chicken, mashed potatoes, a salad, lemonade and coffee, with an ice cream dessert made from a secret recipe. Hazel rented out her house and guest house. She lived on the property in her trailer. The trailer would have been an illegal mobile home, but for the four wheels and towing hitch.

Have you ever experienced déjà vu or had a dream that revealed great struggles, or even their solutions, to your waking mind? Have you found yourself particularly intrigued by a certain time period, a nation or culture, or felt instantly drawn to, or repelled by, someone you just met? Most modern Americans may be inclined to brush off experiences that are beyond the purview of science and technology, even if they themselves have felt emotions and sensations they cannot explain.
