Television and talk radio show personality June Cain Miller has a new book out, and she’s coming to La Cañada’s Flintridge Bookstore at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 11 to share her unique insights and sign copies of her book. Billed as “controversial and bold,” Miller’s “The Chipping Away of America” is a thoughtful compilation of the author’s musings and facts and figures to support them. Much of the work began as notes she took while watching television, listening to the radio or reading as she passed time with her husband, Bob Henry, who has spent much of the past three years in the hospital.

Services are planned for 10 a.m. Sunday at St. George’s Episcopal Church in La Cañada for Jerry Healey, lifelong announcer, lover of all things Irish, and genuine, kind-hearted Good Guy, who died peacefully Tuesday, Feb. 3, at City of Hope. Born in Scranton, Pa., in 1932, Healey began his career in Philadelphia when a scout came to his elementary school classroom and auditioned youngsters for a children’s serial radio show, “The Magic Lady.” All the boys in the cast wore knickers except Eddie Fisher, whose mother allowed long pants.

La Crescenta resident Winston Story has collected more than 40 signatures from fellow parents for a petition against Glendale Unified's use of Wi-Fi in classrooms over concerns that radio waves emitted by wireless Internet routers could pose health risks to children. Story is the father of a child who attends Mountain Avenue Elementary School, which also serves families living in the westernmost section of La Cañada Flintridge. Story presented his concerns during a school board meeting last week on the same night Glendale school officials announced plans to boost bandwidth at all the district's schools by the end of November to improve wireless Internet network usage.

Author and syndicated radio talk show host Dennis Prager is one of the better conversationalists you'd ever meet, but he pulls no punches for political correctness' sake. "Ask me anything," he invites during an afternoon meal at Ichiban Japanese Restaurant in La Cañada Flintridge — a favorite dining spot of his since moving here in 2007— handling chopsticks almost as deftly as he articulates deeply conservative politics and confident moral beliefs, relishing food and idea alike.

On my way home Sunday, I decided to check out what other offerings L.A. radio had to offer on the lower end of the FM dial, where most of the city’s non-commercial stations exist. I landed upon 89.3 KPCC, a well-known and respected NPR affiliate based out of studios at Pasadena City College. The program I landed upon was a new one for me, called “Speaking of Faith” from American Public Media, which also produces programs such as “Marketplace,” “Marketplace Morning Report” and the long-running “A Prarie Home Companion,” hosted by Garrison Keillor.
