Darleene Barrientos Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy (R-La Crescenta) thinks state officials exercise too much control over local issues. His Democratic opponent, Dan Harden, thinks Mountjoy is out of touch with his constituents. And Libertarian Fritz Ward mostly wants voters to know that they have another choice and that state officials set up a "gerrymandered" 59th District that prevents a fair election. On that, at least, two of the three can agree that the huge district that stretches from Lake Arrowhead to La Crescenta makes it tough to represent voters.

Josh Kleinbaum At first, it seemed like a whirlwind to Kevin Buchanan. An interview on Monday, a callback on Tuesday, with another interview that day. And just like that, Buchanan had his first administration job, as an assistant principal at La Canada High School. Buchanan and Joanne Davidson will replace Cindy Keech and Hope Ricewasser as assistant principals at La Canada High School, Supt. Sue Leabo said. Keech was named seventh- and eighth-grade principal at the high school last week, and Ricewasser has resigned.

How ironic that convicted arsonist Raymond Lee Oyler was just recently sentenced to death for starting the deadly 2006 Esperanza fire that killed five U.S. Forest Service firefighters in the San Jacinto Mountains. That fire destroyed more than 50 structures, including 30-plus homes, and burned more than 61 square miles. You know, maybe just Oyler’s death sentence itself could have had a deterrent effect on the unidentified Station fire arsonist if the story had received page-one placement — particularly above the fold, so it could have caught the would-be arsonist’s malevolent eye even while in the display rack, instead of the page A3 report that it actually got in the Los Angeles Times.
