With a rash of property crimes continuing to be reported to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, the station's commander, Capt. David Silversparre on Thursday issued a news release detailing tips on how to prevent them. First among those tips: Keep all of your home's windows and doors locked and, if you have installed a security system, set the alarm. Many local burglaries involve people taking items from parked cars. Silversparre said these are crimes of opportunity, with the criminals seeing valuables that have been left in plain sight.

Two first-grade children who attend La Cañada Elementary School have been stricken by the H1N1 flu virus, it was confirmed Monday by a school district official.

In 1976, when I was in college, President Ford ordered a nationwide vaccination campaign because of a swine flu outbreak at Fort Dix Army base. I remember the panic. A few months later $1.3 billion in claims had been filed by victims who suffered paralysis or crippling Guillain-Barre Syndrome from the vaccine, which was also blamed for 25 deaths. More died from the vaccine than from the swine flu. A pandemic is an epidemic that is geographically widespread and extremely difficult to forecast.
