Tuesday night as customers were shopping at Office Depot on Foothill Boulevard a man dressed in a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun walked up to cashier Ricky Ori and told him to empty his cash drawer into a black bag. "Out of the corner of my eye I saw a man with a ski mask and a gun at point blank range pointed at me," Ori said. At the time Ori was waiting on a woman and her children who ran out of the back of the store, he said.

This after officials at Office Depot announced Wednesday it plans to close up to 126 stores within the next year. A list of those stores is being kept within the company, according to a representative of the Florida-based firm.

Kudos to Terry Kappen for his letter, which you published on March 11. We in La Crescenta have been waiting for a nice restaurant, not more strip malls. In the past 10 years, Foothill Boulevard has been blessed with a new Office Depot and a new Orchard Supply Hardware and a restaurant (Maxwell's) that died a few months after opening. Bowling alleys are coming down and supermarkets going up, and more strip malls, ugh! Please, no taco stands, no more burger joints, no more pizza shops -- just a nice restaurant with American cuisine.

Being an Empty-Nester Opens New Culinary Doors Late in the afternoon on Tuesday, I went on an errand to Office Depot. The parking lot seemed crowded, but with my parking charm I zipped into a spot only steps away from the front door. When I walked into the store, I was dumbfounded. Shoppers covered nearly every inch of floor space. The cashier lines stretched back so far that I gave up counting at 30 in a single queue. Julio Bravo, store manager at the Foothill Boulevard branch of Office Depot, commented on the enormous crowds.

Robert Shaffer SUNLAND -- The day after Christmas, Valerie Uhern went with her grandfather to the Office Depot in La Crescenta to buy a printer. She found a purse instead.

Quick, answer this question without looking it up: What’s an alluvial fan? Give up? It’s not the fan that the slaves used to cool off Cleopatra. It’s not your grandmother’s oscillating fan with the scary metal grate that you were afraid you would lose a finger in if you got too close. And, contrary to what you might think, it’s not part of the cooling system for a Toyota Prius. I did look it up online and, according to geology.com , an alluvial fan is “a fan-shaped wedge of sediment that typically accumulates on land where a stream emerges from a steep canyon onto a flat area.

Are they making summer shorter these days? I mean, with Labor Day having come and gone already, the only thing left to do last week was to send our kids back to school. In our house, at least, that means we’re down to a junior at CVHS and a freshman at PCC. Heh, heh, heh. Is that a light at the end of the tunnel I see? With each new school year, I’m reminded that the back to school routine is much different from when I attended Monte Vista, then Rosemont (a three-year junior high school way back then)
