Letters to the Editor Woman feels prey to teen driver Grandma run over by a reindeer? No, not a reindeer, but almost by a very young teenager driving his brand new, flashy, expensive, low-riding car with three of his friends aboard. After parking my car in a handicap parking space at Ralphs in La Cañada on Tuesday, Dec. 11, I checked to make sure there was no traffic approaching and got halfway across the narrow driveway when the “Game Player” put the pedal to the metal then slammed on his brakes 6 inches before hitting me. Of course, the whole car shook with laughter, as teenagers do when trying to scare someone.

The festival will kick off the holiday season with seven tons of manufactured snow, live music, live reindeer and an appearance from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.

Santa Claus and his delightful wife, Mrs. Claus, clanged into La Cañada one afternoon last week with the peal of a fire engine and merry bells. The jolly old elf was greeted by many of his fans — young and old. How the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce got hold of him (and snow too!) is a mystery, but everyone appeared to be delighted to see him. Snowball fights abounded as children and adults alike played in the snow. When the couple from the North Pole arrived onstage, Santa was given the task of lighting the lights on the gazebo amid loud cheers and clapping.
