Angeles National Forest officials will soon submit a cooperative grant application to the State of California Off-highway Vehicle Recreation Division for 2006/2007 "Green sticker" grants, and are seeking public comment on the application. Green sticker grants provide funding to help protect, maintain, and enhance the Forest's designated off-highway vehicle (OHV) system. If awarded, grant money would be used for trails and facilities maintenance, signing, wildlife and cultural resource protection, wildlife habitat restoration, and law enforcement support at OHV areas.

La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso replaced her gavel for a gold shovel last Thursday, planting a new tree in Glenola Park as part of the annual Arbor Day celebration. Olhasso was joined by Mayor Pro Tem Don Voss, Los Angeles County deputy forester Tamara Hanna and La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce CEO Pat Anderson, as well as a dozen community leaders, in planting the young crape myrtle. La Cañada traditionally celebrates Arbor Day in the spring, but delayed the event by several months.

On Wednesday the fire danger level on the Angeles National Forest in La Cañada's backyard was raised from "very high" to "extreme." This is the highest national level, but the fifth in a six-level program for Angeles National Forest, with the highest being "critical." The decision to move to the extreme level is based upon several variables including the amount of vegetation, fire resources and moisture. "It is not just determined by moisture," said Sherry Rollman, spokeswoman for USDA Forest Service.

The weather outside really was frightful this week as a series of winter storms blew through La Cañada. The first round hit on Monday with rain and cold temperatures with a lull on Tuesday, and then hit again on Wednesday with a prediction of warmer temperatures for the weekend. La Canada looked like a real winter wonderland with snow falling on the foothills of the San Gabriels and residents bundled up for the cold temperatures. “This is definitely sweet,” said Bill Patzert, Jet Propulsion Laboratory climatologist.
