When acclaimed television producer Vince Gilligan handed writer and La Cañada resident George Mastras the script for a pilot called “Breaking Bad,” Mastras knew immediately he liked it. He was less sure, however, that it would ever make its way onto the silver screen. The pilot introduced the story of a 50-something high school chemistry teacher named Walter White who is struggling with the banalities of middle class American life. Diagnosed with terminal cancer and fearful of leaving his family unprovided for, he puts his chemistry skills to use and starts dealing crystal meth — not exactly the stuff of prime time network television.

On Oct. 18, 2001, La Cañada resident Suzanne Tutt was both excited and nervous. She was preparing to conduct her first meeting as president of the La Cañada Thursday Club. Then, at 10 a.m. she got a call from her doctor telling her that a mammogram exam indicated that she had breast cancer. The anxiety, she said, was terrible. “In the following weeks I had to make hard choices for my own treatment,” Tutt said. “I needed to know more than I knew. Should I have a lumpectomy or a mastectomy?

Jane Napier Neely Chit Chat From Here and There Here we are into the month of May and the promise of glorious flowers and a warming of the earth. Of course we are having the usual June gloom but seems that is what happens just about every year. Since last chatting with you I'm now one year older in years but certainly not in mindset. And I'm absolutely not about to turn my party shoes in just because. And as sure as April showers bring May flowers, the Las Floristas ladies showed off Mother Nature's glory at the recent Headdress Ball held at the Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Recently, I accepted an invitation to attend a media tasting dinner at Sushi Roku. Normally I dine on my own dime at local eateries because I don't want to feel obligated to comment on the experience in my column. My daughters are enthusiastic Sushi Roku patrons, so we took our houseguest, Rui Kanai, who was a waiter in his native Japan, to the Pasadena restaurant. Rui gave Sushi Roku high marks. I feel his opinion of a Japanese restaurant trumps mine, so I could safely enjoy myself with no worries.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Maybe Puglia should head up next Gala I wholeheartedly support free speech and good journalism. I have read many Joe Puglia articles that have given me warm feelings regarding our community. He seems very bright, level-headed and insightful. I was truly surprised then when I read his article published last Thursday — three days before the only annual La Cañada school district Gala fundraiser. I can understand his sentiments.

Frank Pace was the frenzy in a pair of slacks and dress shoes. Kathy Desmond was the quiet one in a hoodie, shorts and sneakers. Together, they were architects of the most successful girls' soccer program in area chronicle. Desmond and Pace didn't begin their time at Flintridge Sacred Heart together, nor did they end it that way. But on Saturday, once again together, they will be enshrined as the first coaches in the school's athletic hall of fame. “They're of utmost deserving,” says Stephanie Contreras, the FSHA athletic director.
