Despite the allure of Audrey Hepburn wearing a Coco Chanel little black dress, a simplistic world where everything is in black and white doesn’t excite me. In a way, I see everything in shades of maroon and gray. Those are the colors of my alma mater, McMaster University in Canada, where I first learned about the never-ending complexities of the behavior of everyday matter when studied at the atomic level. In other words, reality chemistry. For instance, stratospheric ozone is said to be “good” because it absorbs a lot of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation that can quickly burn fair skin.

?You have a lump.? These four words are probably some of the most frightening in a woman?s life. These four words are what Janet Hayn heard from her doctor a little over a year ago. ?I told the doctor it wasn?t there,? Hayn said. ?He said, ?Yes it is,? and put my hand on it and I said, ?Oh my God, I have a lump.?? Hayn, a resident of neighboring Montrose, learned of the lump on Aug. 27, 2007. Since then she has been living in a world she thought she would never have to enter.

Ten Years Ago Calling the Jet Propulsion Laboratory a “national treasure,” Ed Weiler, then associate administrator for NASA, announced the La Cañada Flintridge facility had received an $8-billion contract extension through 2008. Twenty Years Ago Sheriff's deputies on patrol shot and wounded a man who they said tried to run them over on Foothill Boulevard near Crown Avenue. At the time of the incident the suspect was behind the wheel of a car belonging to a La Cañada Good Samaritan who, shortly before the deputies arrived, had given the suspect a ride to get gas for the truck he'd been driving that ran out of fuel.
