Flight that Fought Back I had an opportunity to view a DVD titled "The Flight That Fought Back" produced and distributed by the Discovery Channel. This was a docudrama chronicling the last minutes of United Flight 93 hijacked by the 9/11 terrorists that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. The scenes were re-created by actual recordings of phone calls from the passengers to family members, a 911 operator and a cell phone representative. It also contained actual recordings of the hijacker who flew the plane.

Southern California has just experienced its fourth year of below normal rainfall. According to the National Weather Service, from July 1, 2008 to July 1, 2009 Los Angeles has received 9.08 inches of precipitation, well below the 15.15 inch average. “That is a -6.06 departure from normal,” said David Gomberg, meteorologist from the National Weather Service. “Last year [rainfall] was 13.53.” “It’s not a happy story,” said Bill Patzert, climatologist with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

As though we La Cañadans haven’t been tested enough recently. Our investments have been tanking, our incomes shrinking and we’ve had runaway trucks hurtling into our town with disastrous results. It seems like the only thing we’ve dodged — so far — is an attack by Somali pirates. Now we learn our water supplies will be curtailed and we’ll pay more for what we do use, even as our lush gardens turn brown. I learned this first thing yesterday morning, after I started brewing eight cups of coffee, stumbled past our little pond, dodged spray from our frontyard sprinkler and picked up one of my two morning newspapers, the Pasadena Star-News, where a front page headline in huge type read: “MWD approves water rationing.

After Dr. Melissa Johnson gave a program on girls and cliques for the La Cañada Unified School District last year, I invited her to speak to the La Cañada Thursday Club. Even though I am a past president of the Thursday Club, doing a swan song as the club's current vice president, bringing in a psychologist to discuss relationships is slightly out of character. I've practiced law for nearly 40 years, with a focus on trial work. My law school class was less than 7% female. Cliques?

SAN MARINO - In certain ways, Thursday afternoon's Rio Hondo League baseball game between visiting La Cañada High and San Marino provided a valuable reality check. The upstart Spartans, who won all of two league games last year, improved to 3-1 through the first third of league play after rallying for a 7-6 victory in eight innings over the suddenly-struggling Titans at McNamee Field. With the victory, the Spartans (6-2) are tied atop the league standings with CIF Southern Section Division IV fifth-ranked Monrovia (9-1 overall, 3-1 in league)
