Tuesday’s historic general election and huge victory for Barack Obama, who will soon be our 44th president, certainly (and appropriately) overshadows anything happening around town that a hyper-local journalist might consider for column fodder. No matter how hard I've tried this week to zero in on a local topic, the political news remains at the top of my consciousness, and, I imagine many of you are like the people in my office: still talking about the outcome. It's not terribly dissimilar to the chatter we hear after any national election, with some being euphoric and others slightly subdued.

As a student living in a series of student housing boxes, I was an inveterate scavenger. I could spy something usable at 35 mph in the dark. Many's the time I swerved to the curb (kerb for all the Brits in town), leaped out and plucked up that "PERFECTLY GOOD!!" metal milk-can (why, with a glass round on top it would be a great table!), or the 3-legged-wooden stool (our kids used it decades later to reach the bathroom sink) or even a beautiful (potentially) bentwood rocker — after our friend Sandy got finished with that one it was beautiful (but then she's gifted that way)

Q. I love being with my grandchildren, but I find myself at odds with my son and daughter-in-law about the way she is raising them. My son turned out all right, so why won?t they listen to me about how to raise the grandchildren? What do you suggest?

Very few La Cañadans turned out at City Hall Tuesday night as tallies of La Cañada Flintridge precincts came in from the City Council election. However, voters of this city made a not-too-bad showing at the polls, with 22% of residents casting their votes. That’s opposed to the only about 15% of voters who cast their ballots in nearby Los Angeles, according to L.A.’s City Clerk’s office. Up for grabs in La Cañada were two of the five seats on the council. Those seats were retained in a decisive victory for incumbents: Mayor Steve Del Guercio and Councilman Dave Spence.

AZUSA - Missing star guard Robert Cartwright and fighting fatigue and grogginess as well as the Charter Oak High boys' basketball team, visiting Flintridge Prep came up just short in Saturday morning's first game of the boys' basketball 12th annual Azusa Pacific University Shootout. The Rebels closed within one point and were down a possession with a minute remaining before ultimately falling, 44-40, in nonleague action at the Felix Event Center. “It's a quick and difficult turnaround for the guys, especially coming off an emotional league win,” Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara said in reference to Flintridge Prep's 42-41 victory at Prep League rival Webb on Friday evening.
