It’s true that many people look forward to a weekend exodus out of the Big City, but there are others who are looking for an extra dose of energy and excitement and find a place like Los Angeles offers a menu of attractions, even to locals. On a weekend trip to L.A. we combined a little business with pleasure and that meant I had to be in the city for business before my wife and daughter could join me. So we decided my family would take the Amtrak train from the San Diego area into L.A. where I would pick them up. The trip up on the train was just a couple of hours, so that part went fine.

If you're looking for cool factor on your next California getaway, it would be hard to beat Santa Monica, a playground for L.A. TV and movie people that is all neatly compressed into 8.3 miles strategically bordered by the Santa Monica Mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. The words trendy and hip seem to pop up a lot in the descriptions of the some 400 restaurants packed into this little piece of real estate. Throw in a few art galleries, some luxury hotels and, oh yes, celebrities, and you have the makings of an eye-popping diversion from your everyday hometown.

Spring break was almost over. The noon sun had started to heat up the asphalt. Traffic on Foothill Boulevard was at a crawl. It was a typical Sunday morning. I was at Dish, seated in a corner booth. Suddenly, she arrived. It was the Anonymous Source, an attractive lady in her early 40s. Today, she was dressed casually. She wore designer jeans, a pink Dodger T-shirt and an equally pink Dodger cap. I didn?t know baseball caps came in pink! I exclaimed. She slid into the booth.

La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission members took unusual positions on two of the three issues before them in a meeting Tuesday that may have set a speed record for the often beleaguered city body. With two senior staff members out of town for a conference, the commission took less than an hour to complete its agenda, a point mentioned by chair Michael Davitt. The commissioners ordinarily meet for three hours or more, depending on public participation and size of the agenda.

The project to repair a storm damaged wall on Foothill Boulevard will need to go back out to bid, the La Cañada City Council decided Monday. "I think this is jinxed," Mayor Greg Brown said, after City Manager Mark Alexander announced that the top two bids on the contract were withdrawn because of math errors. The city has been trying for months to get the project done, but has been delayed by the need to get approvals from the state and federal governments. The project will be funded through FEMA.

The forecast of a dry winter is doing little to lower the blood pressure of Foothill residents whose homes remain vulnerable to mudslides brought about by the devastating 2009 Station fire. Caused by cooler than normal sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, La Niña typically causes a colder and drier winter in the Southland. Typically. Though last season also had La Niña conditions, the rain came down fast and hard, albeit not consistently, said William Patzert, an oceanographer and climate forecaster at Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
