It was a special day for the young boys of the La Cañada Cougars, a 10-and-under baseball travel team that won state this past month, as they got to meet La Cañada?s mayor, Steve Del Guercio, last week Thursday. ?You?ve made your city proud,? Del Guercio told the U10 team at a ceremony at City Hall. Mayor Del Guercio then congratulated the boys for coming in second place at the recent California State Games in San Diego. Joined by their manager Steve Kim, assistant coaches Paul Absy, Roland Pasion, Kurt Bednar and Ricardo Barrera, and proud parents, the team made a presentation to the mayor and to Carl Alameda, head of parks and recreation, thanking them for practice time on the La Cañada fields.

We live on the corner of Chula Senda Lane and Georgian Road in La Cañada. Coming south on Georgian, past the fire station, there is a completely blind curve - there are dense bushes right next to the curb, making it impossible to see more than three feet in front of you. Traveling east on Georgian there is a steep hill and you cannot see the street at the bottom of the hill for about 20 yards. The steepness of the hill makes it a big draw for skateboarders. For about a year now, we've had a growing faction of young boys getting together almost every day practicing their skateboarding skills on this corner.

In the early morning hours last Saturday, volunteers from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station began setting up for a pancake breakfast at Mayors' Discovery Park in La Cañada. A steady stream of law enforcement officers, families and community members filled their plates with eggs and sausage. The event was not just a gathering of old friends and fellow officers but instead was a strong show of support for one of their own in need. Sgt.

James Luna could dance the “Nutcracker Suite” in his sleep. That’s how it is for most seasoned professional ballet dancers, who can rack up as many as 30 performances of the beloved Tchaikovsky favorite in a single Christmas season. With decades of professional dancing on stages throughout the nation and in Canada, Luna estimates he’s done the Nutcracker at least 200 times in the course of his career. But this year, his performance as Uncle Drosselmeyer in a “Nut Crack’n Knight 2,” a hip hop-inspired twist on the beloved classic being presented Dec. 20 at the Lanterman Theater in La Cañada, will be like no other before it. That’s because, for a few brief moments, the La Crescenta resident will share the stage with 5-year-old Ginger Duncan.

In a first of its kind ruling, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has handed down a decision that four people who allege sex abuse by a former associate pastor at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church in La Cañada will be allowed to seek punitive damages against the Los Angeles Archdiocese.

I was in the parking lot when I saw her, revving the engine of a highly polished Anniversary Edition Harley Dyna Lowrider. The bike looked suspiciously familiar. It was the Anonymous Source, an attractive lady in her 40s who provides ubiquitous scoops to enterprising columnists. “What are you doing here?” I asked. “Why are you ignoring me?
