La Cañada High School senior Rocky Moore, 18, is dating a princess. His girlfriend, Michelle Louise Van Wyk, also a student at La Cañada High School, was one of seven princesses named to the 2010 Rose Court on Monday. The first thing he did when he reunited with her post-announcement was lift her up in the air to give her a kiss as friends — cheering and hollering — surrounded the couple. “I was just amazed,” said Moore, as his classmates — mostly girls — continued to cheer and holler at the top of their lungs behind him. Moore was red in the face due to all the attention he was suddenly receiving.

Despite objections from neighboring residents, the La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission on Tuesday approved a new 8,032-square-foot house at 5180 Princess Anne Road. The unusual configuration of the lot screens the property from the street, city planner Chris Gjolme said in his report. “In general the site has a somewhat isolated and secluded character, a product of its location at the far end of a quiet residential street and the visual buffering afforded by the mature trees in the front,” Gjolme told the commissioners.

On Wednesday, they rode atop of the 35-feet-long Macy's float, perched next to elegant rose gardens.
