The other day, I noticed a Red Box video rental kiosk located within the newly-remodeled Ralphs market. These kiosks tout easy and convenient rentals of select DVDs. One can simply insert a credit card, pick up a movie and take it home with the groceries. Does it get any better than that? Well, yes, it does. Across the street located at 520 Foothill Blvd. is La Cañada Video, a gem of a video rental store independently owned and operated by Hamlet Shabazian. La Cañada Video has a wide variety of movies in video, DVD and Blu-Ray formats.

From a vantage point in La Cañada Flintridge, Mt. Wilson looks clear of snow, but what one can’t see is the snow that covers the north face of the peak. It is this winter blanket that has kept the Montrose Search and Rescue Team members busy the last two weekends. “March 2 was an extremely busy day,” said Mike Leum, a longtime rescue team member. The team was first activated at noon on a call concerning a 20-year-old mountain biker with a broken leg. The cyclist was on the road near Red Box and Switzer Falls when he fell from his bike and injured his leg. The team responded at first with assistance from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Air Five helicopter, but the wind was too strong for the chopper.

The city of Pasadena will spend $1.1 million to replace a bridge over Arroyo Seco Creek, located in the canyon behind the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The bridge is part of a trail that?s popular with Southland hikers. It begins at Windsor Avenue and Ventura Street, and extends to the headwaters of the stream at Red Box on the Angeles Crest Highway. The bridge was damaged during the storms of January and February of 2005, and closed to vehicular traffic. It?s a timber truss structure that is at least 60 years old, and is used both by recreation users and for maintenance by the Pasadena water department, and emergency vehicles.

Leading family and friends up a two-mile trail into Angeles National Forest on Saturday, Sheree Reed had only one goal in mind: to see Switzer Falls. Of the 28 waterfall hikes in the Los Angeles area, Reed said Switzer Falls is the most family-friendly and, unlike the seasonal waterfalls in Malibu, Switzer flows all year. “I knew [the forest] had been burned, but this area hasn't really been affected that much,” Reed said. “This one is intact.” With just a 10-mile drive from La Cañada up the recently reopened Angeles Crest Highway and a right turn at Angeles Forest Highway, picnickers and hikers can find the newly paved Switzer Falls Picnic Area parking lot off to the right.

Without question, I thought the sentimental favorite was Lucy Newcombe, a little girl no more than 9 years old. I watched her hands as she clutched her helmet. Her grip was not excessively tight and seemed to mesh with gentle eyes that showed more determination than fright. With a concerted effort, she wiggled into a defined and narrow cockpit; then, with two eyes barely peering over a plastic frame, she took one deep breath, steadied her gaze, and tightened her grip around a feeble steering wheel.
