On your marks, get set - roll! That was the call Saturday afternoon at La Cañada's Petco, where local hamster lovers raced their pets in the store's 2014 Hamster Ball Derby. Tiny rodents competed from inside clear plastic balls arranged on rows of plastic tracks. A checkered finish line marked the goal. The first to make it down the track won his or her bracket, plus a few edamame beans for a treat, before moving onto the next round. Although nine hamsters were registered, only a few owners mustered the courage to show.

The Trader Joe's shopping center at 475 Foothill Blvd. recently sold for $16 million, according to the real estate firm that helped broker the deal. A group of private commercial real estate investors bought the property, said William Asher of Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors. The property was never on the market, and the new owners assumed an existing loan. "It was a rare sale of a pride-of-ownership neighborhood shopping center in the Greater San Gabriel Valley area and overall in today's market," Asher said.

Best Friends Animal Society is hosting California's largest pet adoption festival on Sun., June 4th, from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. at Manchester Park, W. 7000 Manchester Ave. at the intersection of Lincoln Blvd., in Westchester. More than 1,000 homeless dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and parrots from over 60 rescue groups and Los Angeles shelters will be up for adoption. Animals up for adoption will represent a wide variety of breeds, sizes, and personalities. Each animal has its own unique story - some have been rescued from mistreatment or abandonment, some have never known a home other than a shelter or foster home, and all are in need of loving families to adopt them.

I'll never forget the day I let Claire go to the Paradise Canyon Medieval Faire and later looked out the kitchen window to see a big SUV dropping her off at the front gate. Drying my hands to go out and say thanks, I wondered why the driver was quickly hustling my kid out of her car and then zooming off. I was waving when I saw what Claire was carrying — a big baggie full of water and GOLDFISH. "THANKS A LOT, DEE DEE McCutchan! Yeah that's right you can laugh! You BETTER get your _____ outta here as fast as you can!"

Jan Magnusson opened her door one day to find a kitten sitting on her door step. The cat, now named Munchkin, had an eye infection and was in serious need of medical attention. Luckily, Munchkin had found its way to the right place. Indeed, it's not uncommon for cats to come under the care of Magnusson, the founder of Happy Strays Cat Rescue, a not-for-profit organization. "We take in stray and abandoned cats, mostly kittens, that people don't want anymore. We provide medical care for the cats that need it, that's why we're a little bit short right now," said Magnusson, whose organization has facilitated 984 cat adoptions since its founding in 2006, including 185 this year.
