Appreciates columnist

Each week I look forward to Mike Lawler’s column, Treasures of the Valley.

Mike’s June 25 column did not disappoint. In the length  of one column he spanned generations of our valley’s history, painting a picture of how the valley evolved.

I emphasize ‘generations’ because that is what makes the Crescenta Valley unique – the people and cultures that populated these  foothills.

History is much more than textbooks and dates. It is getting to know the lives and experiences of the people who came before us and called this valley their home.

A Cool Holiday

This Fourth of July I was visiting family in La Crescenta.  We walked down Honolulu Avenue, ate at Pepe’s and seemed to spend a lot of time at Paradis ice cream with my nieces and nephew and their friends.  I come from a small town in Arizona and am used to the community feel but this community is like none other.  The Fourth of July fireworks celebration at La Crescenta Elementary was the best I had ever seen.  The music was perfectly in sync with the fireworks.  I always love visiting my family and am glad that they live in such a great little town. Also this cool weather was a really nice break from the Arizona desert.
