Last weekend I popped into the Chung household in La Cañada to ask David and Josephine about their Valentine's Day plans. "We'll probably go out for dinner. We spend most of our free time with the children, we need to spend some quality time alone together," David said. David and I sat at the big wooden table while Josephine made tea. Alisa, 5, sat next to us, quietly drawing colorful flowers. Her brother, Michael, 2, was taking his afternoon nap. I asked how the Chungs had met. Josephine called out from the kitchen, "Road trip."

Imagine going on tour and skating all the great skate parks that exist in Los Angeles. You sport your pads and helmet, take your board and hang out with your friends. The next day, it?s off to another skate park. Then another. One day you go on excursion to Raging Waters ? just to vary things a little bit. The next day, you?re ripping concrete with your pals doing ollies, dropping into bowls and defying gravity in ways that would make Isaac Newton jealous. For seven hours, and $200 a week, kids that took part in the city of Glendale?

La Cañadans are quite unused to getting poor grades — being the over-achievers that we are — so it was unsettling to learn this week that our city was handed a "D" in tobacco-control efforts by the American Lung Association. It seems preposterous to me that in July our little municipality topped the Los Angeles County life-expectancy list due to many factors, including "a weekly farmers market, walkable streets and effective public education," according to our news article on the subject, only to learn six months later that we might be teetering on the edge of a lung-cancer abyss because there are no laws in place here requiring smoke-free multiple-housing units and outdoor dining areas.

Had Kaitzer lost her marbles when she agreed to allow me to take our daughters on a road trip? Did she not realize there are certain rituals to a road trip? Because of her rather easy acquiescence, I realized that she didn’t. “How will the girls go to the bathroom?” she asked. I thought that a strange inquiry and answered, “I guess the same way they’ve done so since they were 2.” Unbeknownst to me, mothers and daughters share a symbiotic concern over bathrooms.

Just northeast of California?s Gold Country, the roadways heading toward Lake Tahoe reveal a wonderland of outdoor scenery and recreational opportunities. Closed to cross-mountain travel in winter, Highway 4 opens in summer to connect with Highway 89. This route will take you from Angel?s Camp through the charming town of Murphys, right by Calaveras Big Trees State Park, the recreation-oriented town of Arnold and then up through heavily wooded mountain areas where you?ll find Bear Valley Ski Area, Markleeville and then another world of recreational possibilities in Hope Valley.

There couldn't have been a better start to the St. Francis High football season after the Golden Knights ran through visiting Arcadia last Friday, 49-10. Now the Golden Knights will look to take their show on the road to Santa Maria to take on what figures to be stiffer competition in Righetti High, which is ranked seventh in the CIF Southern Section Northern Division and is a member of the Los Padres League. "The Los Padres League up there is good," Bonds said. "I like the idea of taking a three-hour bus ride up there in the preseason to get an idea of what that's like in case we have to go up there again in the playoffs.
