Guest Column by Carol Cormaci Last weekend's Fiesta Days event - brought to us courtesy of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce & Community Association - was all we've come to expect. Based on what I've heard and experienced firsthand, good times were definitely had all the way around. Our hats are off to the innumerable volunteers who pulled off this year's display of hometown pride. A bit under the weather on Saturday, I merely served as driver for our photographer as she documented the the morning's events.

Portrait of noted artist's wife had been hanging near bathrooms inside elementary school. A portrait by a noted local artist that had been hanging unceremoniously near a set of bathrooms at La Cañada Elementary School has found a new home. La Cañada Unified has placed the life-size painting of the community's first school teacher, Helen Haskell, on permanent loan to the Lanterman House museum, where it will be restored and eventually displayed in the second-floor ballroom. The piece dates to the early 1890s and is the work of the subject's husband, Stephen Seymour Thomas, who made his living painting the rich and famous, including President Woodrow Wilson, and settled in La Crescenta shortly after World War I. “La Cañada Elementary did not have a large enough space to properly display the portrait,” said Sharon Hancock, office manager at the school and the catalyst behind the loan.

Here we are into the second week of January already. I reluctantly removed the ornaments from my tree, wrapping each one carefully in tissue paper. I always hate putting them away because they are so magical and representative of places I've been in the world and memories of family times. It will be an entire year before I see them again. Now that the holiday activities have faded away, it looks like the community is taking a well-deserved nap after the frantic rounds of parties and gatherings, and the social pace is slower.

Bridle trails and horses have been an important part of life for residents of La Cañada Flintridge since it was first subdivided in the 1920s. Over the years, many residents have kept horses on their properties and the Karig family, who bought a place on Woodleigh Lane in 1950 for $45,000, was no exception. The house itself was a small ranch house built in 1937, but the draw was the enormous backyard with lots of space and access to the riding trails for the four Karig children, explained Mary Karig Durso.
