It was never easy corralling Lucy Dodson, the standout center for the La Cañada High girls' lacrosse team. Allison Dodson, Lucy's mom, who also happens to coach the Spartans, points to a photo that was taken during the playoffs as an example. "They just can't stop her," Dodson chuckles. "They're hitting her across the head, but they just can't seem to stop her. " All of the coaches in the Prep League knew what kind of mismatches Lucy created on the field, and they paid her the ultimate respect, naming her the Prep League's Most Valuable Player.

After a morning hike in the Angeles National Forest, Los Angeles County firefighters who work at Fire Camp 2 returned to their La Cañada Flintridge station, prepared to start an ordinary Monday. But when they filed out of a fire truck, they found a surprise: A Westin Hotels & Resort truck, stocked full of mattresses. They were shocked and confused at first. None of them had expected the donation. But the men cheered and whistled once they realized what was happening. John Paul Hilsabeck, 24, said he sleeps at the station two to three nights a week.

So much to do, so little time! I scarcely know where to start, there are so many activities happening around town this week that are worth noting. First up, a beautiful old estate in the Flintridge hills is in the spotlight as the 40th anniversary presentation of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, which opened to the public Sunday. I was privileged to have been invited to the black-tie premiere night affair at the home last Friday and was greatly looking forward to the evening and my first peek at the house after all the talented designers had gotten their hands on it. I arrived on the scene, checked in and said hello to Pasadena Showcase for the Arts President Vicki McLuggage and the benefit chairman, Charlotte Varner, who were greeting guests at the front door.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Mega-treat could have fed homeless Re: “Treat crumbles record,” March 18, I guess no one in La Cañada Flintridge has ever heard of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the many other organizations who feed the hungry and homeless in greater Los Angeles. I wonder how may hungry children could have been fed with 5,000 pounds of Rice Krispies and how many smiles brought to their faces with 7,000 pounds of marshmallows.-- Don Gross, La Cañada   Burglary prompts Neighborhood Watch I am a longtime resident of La Cañada and a local Realtor.
