There is a special word in Spanish, when two people have the same name. The word is tocayo . It does not mean namesake, which implies that one person is named for the other. It merely means that two people share the same name. Search engines have elevated this awareness to an art form. The highest and best use of the Internet is obviously not Star Trek or romance, but Google-stalking oneself and one’s friends. Case in point: Joe Puglia. Joe is a prince among men and clearly does not deserve my attention.

Well, look at that: Those of us with homes in the La Cañada Unified School District boundaries will have a chance to vote in a school board election in November, after all. This, despite the awkward (or calculated, as columnist Lauren Oakes suggests today) phone call school board member Jeanne Broberg made a couple of weeks ago to candidate Neal Millard’s campaign co-chair, pointing out the high costs an election would bring if anyone were to challenge the three incumbents.

The usually bucolic Descanso Gardens underwent a spell Saturday, transforming into a one-day wonderland of children's laughter, trains, damask fairy wings and rich, exotic teas. But through it all, the reason for the gathering was not forgotten, as thousands of white, pink and red blossoms took center stage at the garden's annual Camellia Festival. More than 200 varieties of the sturdy winter plant were on display throughout the 160-acre garden, and those who took part in the walking tour and lecture had a chance to learn the history of how the flowering trees and shrubs came to reside there, and to see up close new hybridizations.

Maximus the Dogimus embarked on his Roman adventure during the summer of 2006. Packed in his doggy backpack were his city guides, liver treats, doggy water, and his blue poop scoop bags (even in Italy, Maximus knows that cleanliness is next to Roman godliness). Maximus is on a mission ? a doggy mission. He's now 5 years old and all grown into his sturdy ? albeit small ? Shih-Tzu frame. Max's mission is to stand in the centuries-old arena where gladiatorial combats were staged during the glory days of ancient Rome and where his namesake battled to victory on the silver screen.

Fifteen cases of Girl Scout cookies were delivered to the crew of the USS Pasadena by Noli Caswell and Jackie Harris on behalf of the La Cañada Girl Scouts on March 21 as part of the Girl Scouts Gift of Caring program. The crew was extremely appreciative after they realized the cookies were gifts. "You mean you're giving these to us?" expressed one crew member. "We're only doing our job, but thanks a million." Once the realization sunk in, they scoped out their favorite types and looked forward to diving into them back at the boat.

At least two horse racing devotees will not be rooting for I'll Have Another to win the Triple Crown at Belmont Park on Saturday, and both live in La Cañada Flintridge. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will be cheering for Paynter, a three-year-old colt who is Baffert's entry in the race. Also rooting for Paynter is Dave Paynter, the La Cañada contractor for whom the horse is named. Baffert, who moved to La Cañada in 2011, said he was so impressed by the job Paynter's construction company did on his house that he decided to bestow upon him a unique honor.

Healthy, tasty Mexican food? No, that’s not an oxymoron, but what you’ll find in Los Gringo Locos’ Hernandez Quesadilla Salad, a new menu item available to the public beginning this Thursday at the La Cañada restaurant. The new, slightly spicy salad not only is good nutritionally — it’s good for La Cañada’s kids. The salad is expected to generate thousands of dollars for the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation. Its creator and namesake, Kathy Hernandez, a past La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation president, won the right to develop the salad with restaurant staff through a bid at the Educational Foundation’s annual live auction gala in March.
