As the temperatures rise it is time again for La Cañada residents to be reminded that they share there community with wildlife, as young rattlesnakes begin to open their little eyes and slither through yards, walking paths and driveways. Mark Goddard, a resident who lives in the Starlight Mesa area, wants the community to be aware that rattlesnakes are here. He encountered a rattler about two weeks ago near his home. “People need to know about this,” he said. “They are out and about now.” “They begin coming out in late March,” said Randy Strapazon, president of the La Cañada Flintridge Trails Council.

Letters to the Editor An unhealthy vote disappoints writer David Dreier voted last week to deny health insurance for 5 million children of working poor parents. In doing so, he proved once again that he is President Bush’s puppet, not a strong, independent thinking representative that this district deserves. Fortunately, a few Republican Congressmen had the courage to defy the White House marching orders and the bill easily passed. The very next day, I received a mailer — sent at taxpayers’ expense — featuring a large photo of a smiling David Dreier surrounded by honor students.

The letters protesting Bob Tanabe's letter, which violently insulted Det. Murphy for his tip about gun handling, failed to take the Valley Sun to task for a responsibility it continually fails to perfect. The Valley Sun still prints letters, like Mr. Tanabe's, that make flaming personal attacks on citizens of our community.  Among many slurs and slanders, Mr. Tanabe called Det. Murphy "arrogant and idiotic." Why does the Valley Sun allow the prolific, aggressive and ever angry Mr. Tanabe frequent forum to insult people?

Last Thursday was a great day. In the morning, the Valley Sun was distributed. My friends at the La Cañada Thursday Club immediately read my column and learned that I borrow my daughter's makeup. They quickly arranged for a beauty "make over." Kim from Merle Norman had also read the column. She arrived at the Thursday Club with two satchels of makeup and her sister, Kris. They suggested that I discontinue products such as "Lip Venom" and "Hard Candy," because these products dry out elderly lips.

 This holiday season children and adults alike will be turned on to gaming, and veteran gamers will enjoy new sensations in games and new consoles. Microsoft has the new XBOX 360, released in mid- November. This will be your must have and most difficult to find item for the holidays. The first shipment arrived on Nov. 22 and most stores sold out in one day. Though there have been some reports of technical problems with the XBOX 360, very few have been returned. Despite the problems, if you have the opportunity to get one, buy it. This last year held some great titles, whether they are based on a popular movie like the much anticipated sequel, "Star Wars Battlefront II," the new spin on a cult classic, "The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge," a free for all ogre fest in "Shrek Super Slam," an interactive chocolate factory complete with Oompa Loompas, as in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and the video game adaptation of one of the year's best films, "Batman Begins."

The third installment of the Spider-Man series, and the most expensive, fails to deliver a great Spider-Man movie. This time around, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire), who has super spider powers, finds his Uncle Ben's real killer ? a now escaped convict named Flint Marko (Thomas Haden Church). When Marko escapes, though, he is caught in a sand molecular experiment and becomes the super villain Sandman. As Peter sleeps, he is engulfed by a black alien goo that feeds off his dark side. Remember when Luke Skywalker embraced the vengeance in his heart?

La Cañada Flintridge residents are noticing some new guests in their backyards and gardens as fall arrives - spiders, usually brown, with striped legs, that are stretching their webs all over the place. Leanne Lowden Mothershead, who has lived in La Cañada for five years, said that this summer the spiders have proliferated to the point of being a nuisance. “They come every summer, but this summer has been the worst since I've lived in La Cañada,” said Mothershead.

In July of 1936, a red-haired La Cañada barber went on trial for the murder of his wife. The best part of the trial was when a rattlesnake got loose in the courtroom. The barber's real name was Major R. Lisenba. He was a World War I veteran who had served under the name Davies. By the time he went to trial, he was known as Robert “Rattlesnake” James. Reporters from our mothership, the Los Angeles Times, described the scene: “The last possible thrill was squeezed out of the Robert James murder trial yesterday.

You can feel the electricity in the crowd as they watch the skies with rapt attention. The crowd sits in silent anticipation. Boom! An F/A-18 Hornet zooms past at a speed of nearly mach one. The fighter climbs up and then, ever-so-gracefully, hangs midair for only a moment upside-down before it twists back to ascend into another half loop, then completes a perfect Double Immelman. The crowd applauds and cheers in excitement. For the pilot, Lt. Adrian ?Catfish? Jope, this is just another day at work.
