by Mary O'Keefe La Cañada Flintridge and Crescenta Valley residents may be suffering from itchy eyes, sore throats and a general feeling of the blahs lately. It is more than likely not due to the latest exotic flu but from the recent Burbank fire, according to one local physician. "The sky may be clear but there are still a lot of things you can't see, like carbon monoxide in the air," said Leo Berkenbile, medical director of emergency at Verdugo Hills Hospital. Berkenbile did not see an increase of emergency room patients due to the fire but has been getting a lot of calls concerning allergies and headaches.

The sound of laughter and the squeak of a swing set are normal sounds of a playground. The difference last Saturday was that these sounds were coming from teachers, not children, on the swings and in the sandboxes. It was their laughter that echoed across the Child Educational Center playground. This was the "Creating The Outdoor Classroom" conference sponsored by the CEC in La Cañada. About 250 preschool teachers and administrators throughout California came to learn how to use the outdoor classroom to their advantage.
