La Cañada High boys' golfer Anton Arboleda has experienced a great deal success so far in his senior year, but he is still hoping to achieve more. In March, Arboleda won the 2010 Glendora High Invitational and also went on to win the Rio Hondo League title. In addition, he carded a 72 to finish in a nine-way tie for fifth place last month in the Southern Section Northern Individual Regional at River Ridge Golf Club's Vineyard Course in Oxnard. He has continued that success in the postseason, qualifying for the CIF Southern California Golf Assn.

Greg Foley had a vision in mind last year when he began ripping out the beautifully green grass in the frontyard of his La Crescenta home. Neighbors were leery, but he had a mission to replace the water-wasting sod with something more suitable to California's dry climate - succulents. "I was raised in the Midwest, where everybody has green grass," Foley explained. "Here, that's crazy. We live in a desert. Why are we wasting all this water?" He replaced half his lawn with drought-tolerant plantings, and is now working on completing the project.

There's no flap about plastic bags in La Cañada Flintridge. Despite bans in Glendale, Pasadena, Los Angeles and unincorporated cities of Los Angeles County, plastic bags remain legal here.  However, as of Jan. 1, some Ralphs grocery stores, including the store at 521 Foothill Blvd., ended the practice of offering the controversial bags, instead giving shoppers paper bags. Some customers complained the store was charging 10 cents apiece for paper bags, a policy not in line with Ralphs stores in communities that don't have ordinances against plastic bags.

Visitors from around the country who came to this area for the holidays are now back home, wrapped up in blankets and wondering if it is better to clear the driveway now while the power is out or hold off until tomorrow and risk being embalmed for days. As always when I meet tourists, my surprise is their surprise on discovering that, despite what Woody Allen said, California's contribution to culture is not limited to a right turn at a red light. Of course, their strongest impressions are those that confirm the views they brought with them - a psychological fact of life - in this case, most notably, stretches of immobile freeways during the rush hour (or rather the rush hours and hours)
