Had Kaitzer lost her marbles when she agreed to allow me to take our daughters on a road trip? Did she not realize there are certain rituals to a road trip? Because of her rather easy acquiescence, I realized that she didn’t. “How will the girls go to the bathroom?” she asked. I thought that a strange inquiry and answered, “I guess the same way they’ve done so since they were 2.” Unbeknownst to me, mothers and daughters share a symbiotic concern over bathrooms.

Like they used to say in the ’60s, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” If you live in La Cañada Flintridge and drive the 210, you don’t need a federal study to prove the increase in traffic since the completion of the 210 and I-15 interchange. You don’t need a CHP study to prove the increase in big-rig accidents on the 210. You don’t need a Caltrans study to experience the spillover traffic jams on Foothill Boulevard that follow the big-rig accidents on the 210. Do we really need a Girl Scout to prove these facts as part of her Gold Award?

Photos by Mary O'Keefe Last Friday's very blustery day may have seen some wind damage throughout La Cañada but for the kids at the Child Education Center it was a day to have fun. As the wind came in huge gusts the kids rode bikes, had fun letting the wind blow them on the swings and found secret hide-outs where they could tell stories. Although at times the gusts seem to almost lift them up, the kids found this another play time adventure. Some made leaf soup by stirring debris that had blown into an open container, others decided to race the wind on bikes and yet one determined little guy swept the sidewalk.

North-easterly winds blew dust and ash over La Cañada over the weekend, adding another danger and potential hazard to the residents just south of the Station fire. Dust blew across La Cañada, covering cars and prompting a few residents to seek medical attention for respiratory problems. According to Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s weather station wind charts, the winds peaked at an average of 35 miles per hour—gusting close to 45—on Sunday early morning to mid-day, coming in from the north.

Declare the foothills a disaster area We need federal help to mitigate the increasing catastrophe as a result of the Station fire. I live in La Cañada and my homeowners insurance company has calculated the smoke damage to my house and contents at approximately $10 per square foot. La Cañada has over 7,000 homes that have sustained over $250 million in damages as a result of smoke from this fire. Add to this the home and businesses in La Crescenta, Tujunga, Sunland, Glendale, Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre and other adjacent cities and the smoke damage is several trillion dollars.

Crescenta Valley Little League Junior Softball All-Stars pitcher Kylee Heurkins helped her team with quite an effort last Saturday. After only pitching two innings in the first game of the first round, Heurkins stepped up when called on and threw a three-hit gem to shut out the Alhambra squad in a second chance bracket contest. Add to that five strikeouts and only two base on balls and the rest seemed to work just fine for Heurkins. The CV Little League defenders stepped up and played an error- free game, making a number of dazzling plays in support of their pitcher.

Scientists on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean are cheering this week as data from the Huygens probe, which landed on Saturn's largest moon last Friday, begins to reveal answers and opens new queries about the solar system's only moon with an atmosphere. Seven years in the making, the landing on Titan marked the first successful touchdown of a probe on a moon other than Earth's. "We're just ecstatic. I think it's high-fives and hugs all around," said Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Earl Maize, deputy project manager of the Cassini-Huygens mission, a joint venture by NASA and the European and Italian space agencies.

I think the Allman Brothers sang ?Ramblin? Man? just for me. I swear I was born a ramblin? man. Perhaps my concept of rambling (travel) is not akin to yours but I have to tell you that four blasts of a ship?s whistle still raises the hair on the back of my neck. My concept of travel was shaped years ago. I was prisoner to the works of Steinbeck, Kerouac, Melville, and the great travel writers such as Paul Theroux. I?ve read ?On the Road,? ?Blue Highway? and ?Sunrise with Steam Monsters?
