Bringing baby home from the hospital was twice the fun for six moms who gave birth at Verdugo Hills Hospital last month. Six sets of twins were born at Verdugo in July, a record for the hospital, which had its former record setting event 20 years ago when five sets of twins were born in a one-month period, according to information provided by Celine Petrossian, Verdugo Hills Hospital spokeswoman. ?We were very excited to welcome six sets of twins into the world during the month of July, especially given the size of our community hospital and our average of one or two sets of twins per month,?

Hy Vego turned 89 this week and one of the week's highlights was a party in his honor La Cañadans Paul and Reva Dietz held the party. Hy is Reva's dad. The invitations announced “no gifts, please” and informed invitees that our friendship was enough. Despite this, there were a few balloons, bottles, cards and signs as 70 of us gathered at the Dietz home. The event was multigenerational. A few kids jumped into the pool while the rest of us socialized. Since he moved to La Cañada, Hy Vego has become a regular at the annual Memorial Day services in Memorial Park.

La Cañada could’ve been kicking themselves on the bus ride home from the playoffs instead they kicked their way into the quarter-finals. The Spartans continued their march toward the championship on senior forward Yusef Akbarut’s goal in the 78th minute of Tuesday’s 3-2 nail-biter over Pasadena’s Marshall Eagles. The 3-2 final score was identical to last Thursday’s slender 3-2 advantage over San Bernadino Cajon. “It’s always good to get out of the first round,” Spartan head coach Jordan Jones said after the first round victory.

It seems athletes David and Michael Belcher, juniors at La Cañada High, are always following one another. The identical twins are separated in age by just one minute, and when they race they don't usually finish far apart. More than once, the two triathletes have finished a race with times less than a second apart. "Those are our favorite races, where we are literally right together at the finish," David said. The brothers are both nationally ranked in the top-15 of their 15-and-under male division by USA Triathlon.

I have all sorts of "bits & bobs" to chat about this week, so here goes. Pat and Otis Hutchins are "over the moon" about their two bundles of joy grandchildren. Their daughter Debbie and her husband Chris Ontiveros , who live in Phoenix, Ariz., have presented them with twins — a little girl named Kinsey Parker and her brother Davin Christopher . When the twins were born Pat and Otis went to Phoenix to help the babies get settled in. Debbie and Chris were thrilled to have four more hands and lots of cooing love adoring their babies.

Something funny was in the La Cañada water back in 1991. Or maybe Descanso had a particularly romantic garden that year. Whatever may have been the cause, La Cañada Spartan fans can now see the effects in nearly half of the spring sports teams. In fact, they can see them twice. The softball, boys' volleyball, and swimming teams each boast a pair of special siblings on the roster this year ? identical twins. Juniors Abby and Amanda Ulf have been playing softball since the girls were 5 years old. And they have always played on the same teams, including the Spartan team for the last three years.

Turning 13 has always been one of those birthdays to remember. Going from just a kid to a teenager one of life's milestone. As a teen, there are so many things one needs, like the newest game, music, DVDs and so much more. But twins Eric and Ryan Kim of La Cañada wanted to make their 13th birthday a little different.

Even from the earliest stages, timing was an important factor for the brother-and-sister cross-country duo of Flintridge Prep seniors Sarah and Alan Yoho. Separated by mere minutes at birth, the fraternal twins are close, yet diverse and competitive. What both Pasadena residents have in common is that each is attempting to the lead their respective girls' and boys' squads to a title at the CIF State Cross-Country Championships on Saturday at Fresno's Woodward Park. The Flintridge Prep girls will compete in the Division V championships at 11:45 a.m., while the boys race in the final event of the day at 1:25 p.m. "We're pretty competitive in cross-country and life in general," Sarah said.

It was a cool Sunday at Conrad’s. I sat in a booth, sipping coffee while I perused ancient news clippings. The Anonymous Source deserves full credit for uncovering the hitherto lost history of La Cañada’s favorite son, young Lemuel Veilex. Many of you have asked if the Anonymous Source is a real person. She is, but until she gives permission, her identity remains confidential. In 1893, young Lemuel was arrested for burning down the La Cañada schoolhouse. At the time of his arrest, Lemuel was 14 years old. Despite his age, he was brought to trial on adult felony arson charges.
