The $4.7 million sale this week of a La Cañada Flintridge retail property at 2200 Foothill Blvd. isn’t expected to have any major impact on Pier 1 Imports, the business that leases the property; however, it is a good sign for commercial real estate sales, a representative of Stevenson Real Estate Services, the company that marketed the property, said Tuesday. “This shows that assets priced appropriately in the market place are selling,” said Sevada Hemelians, of Stevenson Real Estate Services.

As August draws to a close, so does another season of the Summer Beach Bus service that is offered in the Foothills each year by the city of La Cañada Flintridge and Los Angeles County. The drive, traffic congestion and high price of gasoline can keep a day at Santa Monica Beach from being, well, a day at the beach. But with a round-trip ticket on the Summer Beach Bus costing $3 (just $1.50 for seniors age 60 and up, and disabled patrons), area residents have been taking advantage of the service since 1994.

Whether it’s for a Valentine’s getaway or not, everyone at some point in their relationship searches for that special place that has all the special touches, is easy to get to, and that will make just the right impression on the partner who will join you for this retreat from every- day living. Problem is, it can be a bit of a crapshoot making your selection. Everybody advertises with words like romantic and special, but not all getaways will measure up to your standards.

Thanks to Los Angeles County and the city of La Cañada Flintridge, which sponsors the bus, it’s pretty simple to enjoy the surf, sand and surroundings of Santa Monica Beach and pier with an economical trip on the Summer Beach Bus.

It’s true that many people look forward to a weekend exodus out of the Big City, but there are others who are looking for an extra dose of energy and excitement and find a place like Los Angeles offers a menu of attractions, even to locals. On a weekend trip to L.A. we combined a little business with pleasure and that meant I had to be in the city for business before my wife and daughter could join me. So we decided my family would take the Amtrak train from the San Diego area into L.A. where I would pick them up. The trip up on the train was just a couple of hours, so that part went fine.
