An elderly married couple from La Crescenta were killed Tuesday morning after their Ford Explorer slammed into a tree in the 5400 block of Pine Glen Road in La Crescenta. Danette Erickson, a member of the Crescenta Valley Town Council, identified the couple as Charles and Frances Crutchfield of La Crescenta, although authorities would not confirm their names pending notification of family members. California Highway Patrol officer Andre Primeaux said an 84-year-old woman was behind the wheel and her 81-year-old husband was in the passenger seat when the accident occurred at about 9:55 a.m. A witness who was driving his vehicle southbound on Pine Glen Road told officers he noticed the Explorer traveling at a high rate of speed when it passed him on the left before attempting to get back into the correct lane.

I am a lecturer of some renown - passionate, articulate and persuasive - my audience glued to their seats. Plus they have their seat belts firmly in place (clear evidence of an effective lecture) and I hold them captive. At least until they are self-sufficient (more lectures). Here's today's lecture: Every, every, every problem has a solution. And your father and I will always, always, always love you. Period. End of speech. But I have so much more to say. I am keenly aware of the impact suicide has on a family.

To many residents of the La Cañada-Pasadena area, Tom Sawyer Camp is a summer institution, and with good reason: The camp was established in 1926 and celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. “We have third-generation children attending, children whose parents and grandparents also attended the camp years ago. Not much has changed, we still have good old-fashioned fun - the only exception is that we now use seat belts and helmets, unlike decades ago,” said Executive Director Sarah Horner Fish.

In the past few decades, there have been a staggering number of changes in car design which have been reflected in our driving culture. I recall the old touring bus commercial featuring a handsomely uniformed fellow who enjoined us to, "Go Greyhound — and leave the driving to us!" Greyhound's glory days may be past, but auto manufacturers are scrambling to pick up the slack, exploiting the gist of that slogan with increasingly robotoid vehicles. Cars do a lot of things they didn't used to, theoretically offering luxury services but really … I think it's because manufacturers figure we're too dumb or lazy to do much for ourselves.
