For the first time in four seasons, the Flintridge Prep girls’ volleyball team made it to the CIF postseason. The stay was a short one, however, but still not enough to diminish the journey in getting there. “For us to make it back to the playoffs ... I think was a huge success,” said Rebels Coach Sean Beattie after his team fell to host Ocean View, 22-25, 25-17, 25-18, 25-23, on Tuesday night in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A playoffs.

The city of La Cañada Flintridge intends to take a local property owner to court over his construction of four pillars in the front of his home at Castle Road and Ocean View. The planning department confirmed this week that the matter has been referred for compliance to the city prosecutor. Paul Yalnezian constructed the pillars without a permit. He told the planning commission they were intended as a safety barrier against runaway cars. They were built behind a wall of less than 42 inches high, the legal limit for front-yard structures.

Waltonia Drive in Montrose, below the westbound Ocean View exit of the Foothill (210) Freeway, was taped off for a few hours Friday by Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies called to the scene at 8:04 p.m. after an apparent suicide. “The fire department was here for awhile, then they left and the sheriff [deputies] stayed,” said a nearby resident, one of several who milled around on the sidewalk trying to learn what had happened in their neighborhood. According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide detective Ty Labbe, a 53-year-old Montrose woman apparently jumped from the freeway bridge.

La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso on Monday recognized 11 local residents who volunteered during rescue and cleanup efforts in the wake of the Feb. 6 debris flows. “We had some volunteers that day and in the ensuing days that, in light of as many volunteers we had helping in our community for that disaster stand out beyond and above that call of duty,” Olhasso said. Those honored included: Cory Stevens, Nick Berkuta, Mary Ann Berkuta, Robert Berkuta, Olivia Brown, Bob Wallace, Brian Fuller, Irene Selemi, Vachik Selemi, Kris Heck, David Oh and Bryn Oh. About two months ago, a heavy rainstorm soaked the San Gabriel Mountains, triggering significant debris flows that damaged more than 30 homes in La Cañada neighborhoods.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - There were concerns coming into the season from La Cañada High girls' soccer Coach Louie Bilowitz that his team's youth could be a weakness. The Spartans, who carry six freshmen and eight sophomores on their 18-player roster, used youth to their advantage at home against Ocean View in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs Wednesday, however, as freshman forward Natalie Ragusa scored La Cañada's first and only goal in a 1-0 win. Unfortunately, Bilowitz wasn't there to see it as he stayed home with flu-like symptoms and assistant Anya Rosen stepped in to lead the team.

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.

The view of the San Gabriel Mountains above La Cañada Flintridge can be striking, but a group of city commissioners don't think the scenery warrants any protection. Members of the city's Planning Commission decided Tuesday night not to move forward with the development of a view preservation regulation, although some said they would like to study the issue in the future. Such a measure would protect hillside properties that offer views of the mountains from obstructions like trees and vegetation.

In the May 9 edition of the Valley Sun there was an article regarding the K-rails here. It reads in part, “The barriers, known as K-rails, were installed in 2010, one year after the mudflows ravaged hillside properties when rains hit the Station fire burn area with nothing to hold the top soil in place.” I cannot say, from my own knowledge, when the K-rails were installed in other areas of La Cañada, but here at the top of Ocean View Boulevard,...

If there is a more beautiful city in California than Santa Barbara, we have yet to find it. Broad beaches are set against lush vegetation and a hilly landscape that is nestled just in front of the picturesque Santa Ynez Mountains. An abundance of Spanish architecture completes a panorama that could just as well be a beautiful city on the Mediterranean. In fact, Santa Barbara marketing gurus like to refer to their little piece of California as the American Riviera because of its resemblance to other warm, coastal areas in other parts of the world.

After five years at 643 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada, Priscilla Luther-Heft and her collection of more than 40,000 books will be moving to Ocean View Boulevard in Montrose. Because of Around the World Books’ current setting in a secluded breezeway in Plaza de La Cañada, the bookstore’s address isn’t visible from the street, Luther-Heft said. “The biggest challenge has been people getting to know that I’m here,” she said. “I didn’t have much of a budget for advertising, and what I did didn’t end up proving to be very successful.

Charles Woodhouse awoke early Saturday morning to the roar of rushing water. Debris loosened from the hillsides by a heavy rainstorm was snaking down Angeles Crest Highway and spilling into his Arroyo Summit Drive cul-de-sac. Mud filled the street, overwhelmed his driveway and seeped into the house, Woodhouse said. But no sooner had the rain stopped, than car loads of community members, most of them fellow members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, began arriving to help.
