Summer brings a quieter pace to La Cañada, doesn’t it? Although many of our kids are taking summer school classes through the end of July, there’s still a decidedly more relaxed atmosphere around town at this time of year. Clubs aren’t meeting again until the fall. There are fewer city meetings and sports teams are slowly gearing up for the next season. That’s my long-winded way of saying there’s not a lot this week for me to sink my teeth into, editorially speaking, but thankfully, Kim Beattie, director of communications for the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, has come to my rescue so this space can be filled today.

Last Sunday’s gentle rain was so pleasing to me as I stayed snug in my little Spanish bungalow listening to lovely music and figuring out a new knitting pattern for a scarf I’m making of soft alpaca and silk yarn. I love this kind of rainy day that is just slightly more than a mist — just strong enough that I can hear the pitter-pat of it on the window sill. Of course my dog Lola was snuggled right up against me, which made it even cozier. To add to the sensory delight of the day was the aroma of a pot-roast was simmering in the slow-cooker.

For all the hard years of training that La Cañada High graduate Peter Wells put in to make the U.S. Sailing Team for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, he isn't going to have a lot to show for it when the Games end this Saturday. Despite weather delays, Wells had completed 10 of his 11 races and competed in his final race yesterday (Wednesday). No results were available at press time. Wells vowed that when he finished third in the U.S. Olympic Trials in 2000 and missed the trip to Sydney, Australia for the Games, that he would make the 2004 team.

There was plenty of elbow room in my polling place when I arrived there at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. It was just yours truly and four precinct workers. The room got slightly more crowded when my colleague Robin Goldsworthy stepped in behind me. But as a La Crescenta resident, she was just there to shoot a photo for the paper, not to cast a vote. And so I wondered whether or not La Cañada voters were taking the City Council election seriously. It was so very quiet around town, and the candidates?

"Shirley was a dear friend of mine from the moment I moved here more than 40 years ago," said Dorothy Maddux.
