Letters to Editor Neighbors seek support for eatery There is a new group that has formed next door in La Crescenta, the Foothill Restauranteers. It’s a committee formed to stimulate interest for the development of a casual, affordable, traditional, American-style restaurant to be located along the corridor of Foothill Boulevard west of La Cañada. Wouldn’t it be nice to drive just a couple of miles down the road to a nice traditional American-style restaurant?

At least three encounters with aggressive dogs roaming streets near Palm Crest Elementary School have residents near the school on alert, and one of them pushing school and public-safety officials to take action. Orchard Lane resident Roger Dahl said that on Oct. 30 he was confronted in front his home by three large, free-roaming dogs — one of which chased him up his own driveway until he repelled it with a walking stick. Kim Chafin, who lives nearby on Palm Drive, said that a month prior to Dahl's encounter, she felt so threatened by two dogs loose at the corner of Palm and Orchard — one of which growled at her, the other coming close enough to lick her hand — that she flagged down a stranger's passing car and fled the scene in it. And in a well-documented incident in June that caused a brief lockdown of the Palm Crest Elementary campus, one of Martha Peterson's dogs was bitten repeatedly and her own clothing tugged at by several large dogs as she walked her two small terriers past the school.

Part 1   I’ve lived my life in dog years. Also cat years and horse years, house years and kid years. Not husband years, as I’ve always (always, forever, since waaaaay-back) been married to Royal. Ask me about a specific time and my mind flips back through the calendars, all the same; a big wheel divided into a fall term wedge with a Christmas break, spring term with its Easter vacation and the longed-for Valhalla of summer vacation shining at its apex.

The entertainment industry has focused lately on adorable animals in adorable movies, cute dogs in cute children's books (and books for grown-ups, too) and funny chipmunks everywhere. I have seen some very appealing animals myself during a recent trip to the Pasadena chapter of the Humane Society and SPCA. Ricky Whitman, vice president of community relations (responsible for the outreach activities in the San Gabriel Valley) gave me the tour. I was struck by the extraordinary love extended to all the animals by the staff.

The most egregious of the animals, the Garrets said, is Merkel?
