We are blessed. On top of being on a beautiful plot of land and having Descanso Gardens within its limits, La Cañada is 10 miles to downtown, 40 miles to the ocean and 90 miles to the mountains. For a few of us, that last one is the best prospect. Bear Mountain, Snow Valley, Snow Summit, Mt. Baldy and Waterman are all well within driving distance. Mammoth is not much farther and you can get to Lake Tahoe in less than eight hours. There?s treasure everywhere. I have a trip planned for Bear Mountain this week.

Friday morning was not just another rainy day in physical education classes at La Cañada High School. Instead, it looked like a lecture hall at a prominent university. Each hour, more than 100 students packed into the lecture room of the school's Information Resource Center, to hear Dr. Michael Novak, a Glendale dermatologist, assisted by Rosana Vicente, from Glendale Adventist Hospital, speak about the dark side of the sun, its effects on the skin and how to prevent sun damage and skin cancer.

However, her “brilliant mind and articulate speaking” could lend itself to whatever this youth chooses, he added. La Cañada High School senior Joanna Burlison also has the ability, dedication and strong work ethic to go far, Valassidis said. “She’s got the core values of what every educator wants to have in a student,” he said, adding, “She’s more interested in learning than in grades.

The folks from Colorado or the Sierra Nevada may chuckle just a bit when you say there is good skiing near Los Angeles, but our eye-opening trip to Big Bear in January proved that, for us, it definitely was worth the trip. Wide-open cruising, sunny skies, high-speed quads, no lift lines and lots of fresh snow — could you ask for anything more? The snow, we should add, is man-made, but the operators of Big Bear Mountain Resorts are quick to point out that snow is snow, and man-made snow is, indeed, real snow.
