Do You Loop?

Do You Loop?

Some people walk at brisk pace, some stroll while having a leisurely chat, others jog, bike and skate. Hands-down, the Rose Bowl Loop is Pasadena’s most popular exercise track. And that’s the point of a community meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight: What does the future hold for this 3.3-mile recreational loop? In the [...]

2009 Annual Report is Online!

2009 Annual Report is Online!

Our first-ever annual report, which made its debut at Mayor Bill Bogaard’s State of the City event, was the brainchild of City Manager Michael Beck.

Mystery History — Not Quite Solved

Mystery History — Not Quite Solved

For the second time in Mystery History, um, history, I’m not prepared yet with the full scoop! I had some newspaper articles that we were absolutely, positively sure were all about the background to the photos on the contact sheet above, but on closer inspection yesterday the articles are from 1926.

Our studio will still be in the back building at the southwest corner of Los Robles and Woodbury, and our small production room will still be across from the council chamber at City Hall. But on Jan. 12, after more than two decades, 55 KPAS will move to channel 3 on the Charter Communications system. [...]

Memory Card Full

Memory Card Full

I was deleting photos from my camera tonight and decided to share some with you from the past few weeks. This is the final photo that filled up the memory card: It’s of the Rose Parade public safety staging area in the Civic Center between City Hall and Police Headquarters. I shot it at about [...]

Joe Hayashi Memorial

Joe Hayashi Memorial

Paul Little reminded me that I neglected to mention the Joe Hayashi Memorial in yesterday’s post. U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Joe Hayashi demonstrated dauntless courage and exemplary leadership in Italy that enabled his company to obtain its objective before he was mortally wounded. He was presented the Medal of Honor in 2000 by President Bill [...]
