Mountain Biker Rescued in Arroyo Windsor Area Near JPL

Mountain Biker Rescued in Arroyo Windsor Area Near JPL

Members of the Altadena Mountain Rescue Team assisted in the rescue of a 41-year-old Rancho Cucamonga resident who went missing last night while biking on a trail near the Arroyo-Windsor area just north of the debris basin in the Arroyo Seco.

The man was rescued just past 8:45 Thursday morning, Deputy Dan Paige of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Altadena Station said.

“He had last spoken to his wife at half past midnight saying he had lost his way but was back on the trail again and everything was okay,” Paige said. “Morning time comes and he’s not home, so the wife became worried. The hiker’s brother contacted us at 6:11 in the morning, we sent out crews, talked with him and found he could be in the Arroyo Windsor area near the JPL, and we set out search teams on foot.”

The team called LASD’s Air Rescue 5 to search the area, and advised other mountain bikers who were familiar with the trail to look out for the missing biker.

County of Los Angeles Contracts with Pasadena Humane Society for Animal Control, Sheltering Services

The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control announced Tuesday it will be contracting with Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA effective Dec. 1, 2016, for animal control and sheltering services to the unincorporated areas of Altadena, La Crescenta-Montrose, and Pasadena.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors authorized Department of Animal Care and Control Director Marcia Mayeda to enter into an agreement with PHS for animal care and control services in these unincorporated communities.

The agreement will allow for PHS to respond to animal service inquiries within the unincorporated areas of Altadena, La Crescenta-Montrose, and Pasadena to provide sheltering services to these communities previously served by DACC.

“This public-private partnership will improve animal control services to these unincorporated communities as PHS works extensively in those areas,” said DACC Director Marcia Mayeda. “Their animal shelter is better located to serve residents and
animals, which will make it easier to reunite lost pets with their owners, a goal we all share.”

Altadenans Scott and Lori Webster will Serve as Grand Marshals of the 39th Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!

Altadenans Scott and Lori Webster will Serve as Grand Marshals of the 39th Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!

The Doo Dah Parade has been known to honor local heroes in the community as its Grand Marshal. This year’s pick, Scott and Lori Webster, is no exception. Scott’s family have been retailers in Altadena since the early 1920s, founding Webster’s of Altadena, a multi-department store that that served local consumers for 87 years. As a partner in life and business, Lori Webster has specialized in promoting ecologically responsible and fair trade products and the creative works of local artisans. Although the Webster family sold the land and businesses, the pharmacy is still there and bears their name.

Having to compete with national chains in a struggling economy, Scott and Lori proudly espoused the “shop local movement” in support of small business owners and better neighborhood relations. Overcoming many odds, they continued the Webster legacy with Hoopla! Emporium, an eclectic neighborhood boutique that sources most of their products locally and fulfills their vision of supporting community artists.

Scott and Lori’s commitment to their community doesn’t end with local consumers and opportunities for artisans.
