Letters to the Editor What happened to oleander bushes? One of the sheriff’s department’s favorite places to hide in order to catch speeders racing down Angeles Crest Highway (especially on the weekends) has been destroyed! As a Realtor I travel up and down the highway almost on a daily basis and have seen the hardworking deputies there under the oleanders often. The deputies being there was a good thing. Every weekend, from my office on Angeles Crest I watch the parade of fire department trucks and ambulances rushing up the ’Crest to respond to accidents.

This unique and architecturally important mid-century three-bedroom, two-bath residence is situated on nearly an acre of private, park-like grounds atop the beautiful community of La Cañada Flintridge.

If enrollment in the La Cañada Unified School District continues its downward trend over the next few years, serious consequences such as the closure of a school site could be the result. The causes in the decline may be linked to the real estate market or families placing their children in private schools, or both. At the most recent school board meeting, Supt. Jim Stratton said that this year the short-term good news was that the district is down just 80 students, 10 fewer than the projected shortfall of 90. However, enrollment figures include 135 inter-district students, or 3.3 percent of overall student population, which were accepted on employment-related permits because their parents work within the boundaries of the district, many at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge.
