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.

For the first time in 44 years of voting I'll be casting my ballot for a Democrat this November, for Cynthia Matthews rather than David Dreier. Mr. Dreier has consistently voted in favor of granting amnesty, social security, welfare, driver's licenses and all the benefits of citizenship to illegal immigrants. His record is even worse in this regard than John Kerry's, Diane Feinstein's, Hillary Clinton's, and even Teddy Kennedy's. I just wonder what part of "illegal" he doesn't understand?

Ten Years Ago The La Cañada Flintridge City Council awarded a $792,000 contract to Pima Construction to build a park on a former Caltrans lot on the south side of Foothill Boulevard near the Glendale (2) Freeway entrance. The transportation-themed park was designed by Ronnie Siegel of Swire Siegel Landscape Architects. Today it is known as Mayors' Discovery Park. Twenty Years Ago Jinny Dalbeck, then-president of the La Cañada PTA Council, was chosen on a unanimous vote by La Cañada school board members to complete the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board term of Carole Siegler, who was moving out of the area.

If you've ever snoozed through art history classes, you probably heard a lot about the Italian Renaissance. The lectures in those courses often give the impression that something in the national Italian character, coupled with the rise of a prosperous middle class, resulted in an unprecedented cultural combustion. That creative watershed is usually depicted as an insulated set of achievements. Those surveys probably imparted next to nothing about Flemish painting. Maybe you remember the elaborate, paneled “Ghent Altarpiece” but never dreamed that the painters in Flanders were responsible for valuable innovations that had a direct effect on their contemporaries of the Quattrocento.

The bicycles were buzzing, the spokes were flicking, the fans on the corner of Green Lane and Angeles Crest Highway hung out behind the barricades, some for up to two hours for this one moment, waiting to clatter their cowbells and cheer for the cyclists whom they’d interact with for only a few seconds. It went like that, a lot of waiting, watching California Highway Patrol and other cars go by and premature cheering for cyclists who weren’t in the race (mostly fans who wanted to chase the course)

From their pulpits of stone the music of mission bells played heavily and with a melody so sweet their music fell upon my ears. Crafted by artisans from the Netherlands the bells from Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa beckoned the faithful to morning mass. The bells are the voice of the mission and were an important part of mission life. They announced reveille, Mass, breakfast, the start of work, lunch, siesta, afternoon work, dinner, and signaled a time to retire. Early mission life has dissipated but I sensed a dark reality still exists defying preconceived assumptions that early Spanish influence on native peoples was of a benevolent nature.
