"Will not block any access" "will put in new fencing at the head of the trail.Read More leaving a gap for trail users. ....so,you know the question here. What would a fence at the head of a trail be used for, when it is not used " to block any access???????? Has the overregulation brainwashed the scouts now? Are we to be governed by 14 year old kids who want to put up a fence on a public trail? Have I missed something here? If so, tell me. If not I will lead the move to remove it.

With being inundated with bad news daily, it is refreshing to hear a positive story about our youthRead More doing great things. I'm glad to know that there are many schools in the area that stress ethics, community service, etc as part of their curriculum. That was a large factor in our choice of a school for our children. In the infamous words of JFK during his inaugural speech: ""Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country" Kudos, Mr. Benson!

A very responsible young man who will, hopefully, dedicate himself to a life of public service.

The Altadena Relay for Life is a positive group made up of survivors and caregivers. I lost myRead More mother to breast cancer in '99 but the time spent planning for the June Relay is upbeat and brings hope to a tough issue.

Wahoo, the Fork in the Road is back and what a great welcome, to help others.

Webster's Fine Stationers is also working with Put The Fork In Hunger, and you can drop off anyRead More packaged food at the store now until Sunday. I will be volunteering down at the Fork and will take any food items to them then. As an added bonus, you will get 10% off any purchase if you bring in a food donation.

Thanks for letting us know Lori! Between this and the Altadena Library drive, none of us reallyRead More have an excuse not to contribute at this point.

Angela, as always you put a lot of thought in your comments and they are much appreciated. There isRead More a group of regulars that tune in to this form of communication and are fairly well-informed. It is the ones who don't know how to go online or who are afraid that we need to make feel more secure. As you said, "you won't get everybody but you'll get some." I can live with that. Our job, and mission, if you may, is to lead the horse to the water. We realize that we cannot force them to drink. I would really love people such as you assist me in exploring the possibilities of how to pull of this community unity initiative. Thanks for your comments.

I read the Altadena Patch and Altadenablog regularly both in my email and in Facebook. I suggestRead More expanding the reach of both of these blogs through notices/flyers/brochures at local businesses, schools, and community centers. It might help to include more information about specific opportunities to volunteer or to get involved in our community on the blogs. I think you'd be surprised at the number Altadena residents like me who would step up to the plate.

Greg, are you aware that a great number of Altadena residents are retirees? I think this would be aRead More great resource for volunteers. Seniors often want to fill their days doing things of value and what better service than helping their hometown, Altadena. You could probably find volunteers through the Senior Center or our local churches. As for informing residents of up-coming events, I think a banner stretched across Lake Avenue is one way that has worked in the past. Thanks for all you do, Greg. You are a great asset to our town.
