Home, Sweet Colli-for-nya " By Lauren Oakes Well another summer has come to an end. It was exhilarating and exhausting. As busy as the school year is, at least they are contained for a certain number of hours each day. Our oldest daughter graduated in June. That was a whirlwind. Two days later she and I drove to Texas. We went Highway 40 to avoid the heat in Phoenix. This took us through Arizona; a night in Flagstaff, where I don't think she slept. My fault. I told her about the time I was driving through northern Arizona 30 years ago and wondered why there were dirt clods all over the road.

A near-capacity crowd of more than 800 people filled Lanterman Auditorium last Friday to hear the vocal stylings of the Texas Tenors - and in so doing, raised more than $50,000 for the Community Scholarship Foundation of La Cañada Flintridge. The show was the culmination of a relationship between the trio - Marcus Collins, J.C. Fisher and John Hagen - and La Cañada Flintridge that grew from an encounter between the group and local resident Martha Burns on a cruise ship in 2009.

Wow! Here we are already into February. Last week, after the rainstorm drenched us Monday, it seemed that we leaped straight to July, as the thermometer hit the 80-plus mark by Thursday. Yes, our weather here in Southern California is a bit odd. Right now I'm flitting from movie theater to movie theater as I try to see as many of the Academy-Award-nominated films as possible. I try to visit nearby theaters on their senior days because the admission fee is lower - and sometimes the popcorn will be at a bargain price.
