Have you noticed that in La Cañada the trees stop where the national forest begins? Look down sometime from the Cherry Canyon trail. Although there is not an empty lot to be seen, trees dominate the entire view. Their variety is equally astonishing even for someone who has never hugged a tree in his life. (Well, hardly ever.) To name a few: the groves of deodars that always put me in mind of the phantom wood in Disney's “Snow White” and, at the other end of the cultural scale, the orderly rows of cedar more suited to classical Rome; the startling splotches of gold and red among the evergreens in the fall and the delicate purple jacaranda in the spring that would be more at home in the tropics than in Granola Park - sorry, Glenola.

This story is true. Or not. At right about the time of the California Gold Rush, around 1849, a young man named Joaquin Murieta and his pretty wife Rosita traveled north from Mexico, to the California mining camps to mine for gold. The threads of Murieta's true history have unraveled over time. In 1854, John R. Ridge published a book describing how the other miners were so prejudiced against Joaquin Murieta that they assaulted and killed Rosita, which caused Murieta to swear revenge.

As a “made man,” an honor bestowed upon a mafioso of full Sicilian descent, he had a promising career in la famiglia. Frankie could snap his fingers and 10 gangsters would jump! I've known a lot of tough guys in my life but nobody was meaner than Frankie V. Regardless, everyone has a weakness, the one thing that will bring you down to your knees. For some people it's love, others money.

The first shipment arrived on Nov. 22 and most stores sold out in one day. Though there have been some reports of technical problems with the XBOX 360, very few have been returned. Despite the problems, if you have the opportunity to get one, buy it. This last year held some great titles, whether they are based on a popular movie like the much anticipated sequel, "Star Wars Battlefront II," the new spin on a cult classic, "The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge," a free for all ogre fest in "Shrek Super Slam," an interactive chocolate factory complete with Oompa Loompas, as in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and the video game adaptation of one of the year's best films, "Batman Begins."

Local churches for months now have reported a precipitous increase in the number of congregants seeking help. Now, with state budget cuts expected to have a significant impact on family health and social services, the burden may become greater. Where to do you see the role of your church in picking up the slack left by depleted government agencies? Even in the best of times — when our economy is in robust health and our citizens can get stable, well-paying jobs — government agencies cannot meet all the needs of our communities.
