On Sunday afternoon La Cañada drivers found the traffic signals on Oakwood Avenue at Foothill Boulevard were blinking red lights, effectively turning the intersection into a four-way stop. The city Public Works Department said the event was neither the result of a power outage nor the work of any construction workers who may have accidentally caused the light change, but rather a power failure from the signal controller. By Monday afternoon the traffic lights were back up and running, fixed by Los Angeles County workers, as La Cañada has a contract with the county to make minor street repairs such as potholes and traffic signs.

Humorist Steve Browne was caught in a hilarious confrontation with a familiar person last week. “There was nothing I could do,” admitted Browne. “I had to have the talk. It was the only way. I laughed a lot.” “What was the subject of the discussion?” asked a bystander, who was standing nearby. “He wanted me to quit the humorist job at the Valley Sun, said I was out of laughs and needed to take some time off. The challenge of finding humor in sand piles, traffic signs and Angeles Crest had become a repetitious.

Thanks to a late night photographer, evidence of alien landings in Memorial Park have been confirmed by federal investigator Cone Headd. "It's not that they aren't welcome," explained Headd, "But the park closes at 10. The aliens use it after hours. That is wrong." An interview with the alien father, Spacd N. Vad, a married father of three, was enlightening. "The kids like the park. Especially the tire swing. We don't have anything like it at home. Because our ship is quick and shaped like your gazebo, it seemed a natural for us. I also make sure we don't leave any radioactive trash."

In a continuing effort to highlight traffic safety around schools, Crescenta Valley Sheriff traffic Sergeant Mark Slater joined Palm Crest Elementary PTA members in an early morning meeting on Wednesday. The PTA has been banging the safety drum for a long time. But a recent accident involving a child crossing the street in a non-designated drop-off area has spurred them to step up the education of parents and kids on traffic safety. PTA members shared stories of traffic incidents that they had witnessed, from students running across the street in front of traffic to illegal U-turns made by parents.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Mark Slater is cruising down Knight Way in La Cañada Flintridge when he spots a cyclist that fits the suspect profile. He makes a quick U-turn, pulls up to the curb and stops 12-year-old Garret Culver. The Paradise Canyon Elementary School student's offense? Proper use of safety precautions while riding his bicycle. The fine? A coupon for a free Slurpee at 7-Eleven. Operation Chill is underway in La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta, where law enforcement personnel from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station are "citing" children for exhibiting good behavior.

On Dec. 13, 1900, the Automobile Club of Southern California was founded in Los Angeles. Back then, motoring was a rich man’s sport. Elegant. Romantic. Adventurous. The Automobile Club of Southern California catered to the early road warriors. Its mission was to foster road improvement and improve traffic laws. Two years later, in 1902, the American Automobile Association was formed and the Automobile Club of Southern California became an early affiliate. In the years that followed, the “Auto Club” hired cartographers to survey the state’s roads.
