Many longtime La Cañada families have moved to the beach area and, of course, being an ocean lover, I don't blame them. Chris and Nancy Valente and family are a good example.

As a former reporter and editor of the La Cañada Valley Sun for 39 years, I can relate to the ongoing episode of the pesky wild peafowl in La Cañada Flintridge.
