A wet and windy December capped with bone-chilling cold on New Year's Eve was all but a memory by the time festivities got underway Saturday morning for La Cañada Flintridge contingent of Rose Parade royalty, volunteer float builders and their boosters on the bleachers. Clouds parted and the sun shone brilliantly in the sky above Pasadena just in time for the 8:03 a.m. commencement of the 122nd annual Tournament of Roses Parade — a fast-paced kaleidoscope of artistry and showmanship complete with 47 dazzlingly colorful floats, 22 marching bands and several equestrian teams that all whizzed by in about two hours behind celebrity chef and parade Grand Marshal Paula Deen.

Some 35 speakers raised issues about the project site, which will house an outdoor education center, an equestrian center, the county fire camp and open space with trails and picnic grounds.

A Pasadena father-son team wore matching brown jumpsuits Tuesday morning as they made the final push to get a dinosaur down Colorado Boulevard. With the work of Dwight Crumb, 64, and his son Dustin, 37, and a host of other volunteers, the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. float, “Dino-Saur,” won the Tournament of Roses award for best animation. The float features a brontosaurus inspired by pterodactyls to attempt flight. His large wings are among the 38 moving parts in the float, the most of any entry in the 124th Rose Parade.

LA CAÑADA - A two-run, fifth-inning triple from La Cañada High junior infielder Alex Vaughn broke up what was a frustrating effort for the host Spartans, who benefited from the extra-base hit and some solid pitching in picking up a first Rio Hondo League victory this season, 2-1, versus upset-minded South Pasadena on Tuesday afternoon. With the win, the Spartans improved to 4-4 overall and 1-1 in league and head into the spring break as they won't return to Rio Hondo League action until an April 9 contest at Monrovia.

I love clouds and we hardly ever get them here. Last Thursday we had flotillas of fabulous, puffy white clouds that plied the ocean of bright blue sky. They were propelled by wind gusts that made them appear that they had rockets on them. They were moving so quickly they almost made me dizzy. Anyway, I did enjoy the cloud show while I made my way about the community running errands. --- Also last Thursday, the Oakmont League of Glendale held a pretty exciting fundraising event.

To call the sandy-haired Terry Cannon a baseball fan is to damn with faint praise. He's a baseball obsessive. But Cannon is no Rain Man with batting averages, career wins and losses, and career RBIs rolling around in his head. He's fascinated with the little-known sociopolitical aspects of the national pastime's history. Which is where the Baseball Reliquary, his "traveling museum of baseball," comes in. Cannon is something of a Renaissance man and his name should be familiar to the Pasadena arts community.

Two men were rescued by a search team Thursday after getting lost 12 hours earlier while hiking in the Eaton Canyon area above Pasadena. Assisted by a deputy who descended by rope from a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter, the men were individually hoisted up to the aircraft before being whisked away to the nearby Eaton Canyon Nature Center. The department's Altadena station received a call at 5:40 p.m. Wednesday from one of the two 24-year-old men saying they were "OK" but had become lost, sheriff's Deputy Daniel Page told KTLA-TV Channel 5. The men, described as fit but inexperienced hikers, were believed to have started their trek about noon, Page said.

Everyone knows our property values here in La Cañada Flintridge are much higher than in Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, Eagle Rock and even the so-called Sagebrush area in our own city. Of course, this is because of the reputation of the La Cañada Unified School District. Most of our buyers come here for the schools. In fact, most of us realtors came here for the schools. Having one of the best school districts in the state gives us a tremendous advantage over our neighboring cities even though they are much more cosmopolitan than us. They have more restaurants, theaters, parks, shopping centers and points of interest than us. But you can't just build good schools.

SOUTH PASADENA - It was a disastrous start that led to an ugly conclusion. Set for a Rio Hondo League showdown with rival South Pasadena High with both teams jockeying for positioning atop the Rio Hondo League, La Cañada High looked nothing like a team that was unbeaten in its last six games. Instead, the Spartans were on the wrong end of one of the worst scores in recent memory for the program, falling to the host Tigers, 7-1, on Friday afternoon. “Worst game in three years,” said La Cañada Coach Alex Harrison, who in his three seasons at the helm had never had a team relinquish seven goals until Friday.

SOUTH PASADENA - For the first time in 2014, the La Cañada High girls' basketball team suffered a defeat.

It was the lone setback in league play for the Tigers, who looked to have extra motivation in the second and final regular season meeting between...
