Major renovations to Plaza de La Cañada, at the northeast corner of Foothill Boulevard and Oakwood Avenue, received planning commission approval Tuesday. First opened in the late 1960s, the shopping center is home to Vons market and TJ Maxx, and is owned by Vons Company. Consulting planner Roger Cantrell reminded commission members that in 2007 Vons submitted design plans to the city for an extensive, multi-million dollar renovation project. As a result of the economic downturn, however, the grocery firm put those plans on hold.

One of the most pleasurable smells in life is the one that comes from the interior of a new car. It is the odor of something fresh, something that is so new that it has never been used before. The La Cañada High Class of 1965 experienced something even better than a new car. That class not only had the unusual distinction of being the first graduating class at the high school, but as juniors were among the first students to attend the new facility. "It was different. Everything smelled so clean,'' remembers Harlan Updegraff, who now lives in Concord, near the city of San Francisco.

Descanso Gardens will soon welcome a new neighbor. City officials unanimously approved the construction of a two-story, traditional-style house on Descanso Drive at Tuesday’s Planning Commission meeting. The 6,495-square-foot residence is to be built at 1304 Descanso Drive, between Encinas Drive and Padres Trail, according to a city staff report. The first floor, in the shape of an “L,” will make up about 75% of the total floor space, while the second floor will make up the remaining 25%. A porte-cochere, detached gym and detached three-car garage were also part of the proposal.

Walking isn’t easy for my friend Tody, which I suppose is to be expected when your once-athletic body reaches the age of 90. Tody (a nickname given to her as a child. . . her proper name is Mildred) doesn’t like to complain. She’s always been a hardy soul who has managed quite nicely, thank you, to take care of herself without anyone making a fuss about her. I met her 21 years ago this summer when our family moved into our Milmada Drive house.
